If you have lost your pin then you can enter the pin 3 times, util the
PUK lock appears. Then you unlock the PUK calling the phone company
that provided the SIM card inside your phone (eg Vodafone, Telecom,
Tmobile, Orange, AT&T etc.).
Calling the phone company is
the standard procedure to unlock a SIM card, however, if you do not
want to call the company you can just replace the SIM card with one
compatible with the phone, as PIN and PUK codes are related to SIM, and
not to the phone.
If it is a pin lock not a security lock phone up your mobile provider they can give you a puk code then enter your pin wrong 3 times then it will ask you for a puk code then put the puk code that network gave you and then ya can reset your pin.if your on o2 you can get the puk code on line
