Try this 277634#*# it should open a hidden "engineering" menu and use the master reset there it will clear all pins and security code to default. Once done the security code is 0000

I put a lock code now I forgot. It and cantget in my phone.

Messages & Display Issues: The display on my phone reads "Locked" or "Keyguard"

  • If you see the word "Keyguard" on the display of your Kyocera phone, you may have activated the keyguard feature. Press button below "Keyguard," then press 123 or the "OK" key to unlock the Keyguard feature. The phone will display "Keyguard Disabled."
  • Some Kyocera phones also have the phone lock feature available. If the phone lock was activated, the default lock code is 0-0-0-0 (4 zeros). When your handset is programmed with a mobile number by your Mobile Service Provider, the default lock code will change to the last 4-digits of your mobile number. To change your handset lock code, you must go to the Security menu, then select Menu > Settings > Security > Current 4-digit lock code.

    I forgot my nokia 3500c password how to get new password

    First, activate the Automatic Keyguard which locks the phone keypad after a time that you set:

    Menu>Settings>Phone>Automatic Keyguard>On

    Then set the Security Keyguard which will demand a code to unlock the phone:

    Menu>Settings>Phone>Security Keyguard>On

    Finally, your lock code is 12345 as standard. If you want to use the lock for security, you need to change the code to a personal code:

    Menu>Settings>Security>Access codes>Change security code - then you need to enter the current code (12345) then enter your chosen code twice.

    Each time you need to unlock the phone, you'll need your personal code. Be sure not to forget the code, as if you do you will have to get the phone reflashed at a Nokia service point which will wipe your personal data from the phone.

    My Nokia 6020 is 'locked' with 'Opening Folder'

    Check out this link below to download a PDF manual, software, and more for your phone. Just copy and paste into your browser.

    Keypad lock (keyguard) from page 29 in your manual:
    To prevent the keys from being accidentally pressed, select Menu, and press *
    within 3.5 seconds to lock the keypad.
    To unlock the keypad, select Unlock, and press *.
    To answer a call when the keyguard is on, press the call key. When you end or reject the call, the keypad automatically locks.

    Security code from page 17 in your manual:
    The security code (5 to 10 digits) helps to protect your phone against
    unauthorized use. The preset code is 12345. To change the code and set the phone to request the code, see Security p. 80.

    Hope this helps, let me know if I can help you with anything else. It would be very kind of you if this does work for you to please rate me or leave a short note. I would really appreciate it. Thank you for your time.

    Envy 2 dials phone numbers accidentally- need to set key guard

    On the front keypad, press the ok button until you have the option to select contact list. Scroll down that list until you see keyguard settings. Press ok to enter keyguard settings and then go to option 2 - unlock options. Select two step unlock. This will force the user to press "ok" and then "clr" in order to dial out. This has resolved the problem for me...Good luck.

    Locked cell phone keypad

    first, take out the battery and press the RED end call key for 15 seconds, then put the battery back in and turn on the phone.

    if that doesn't work then try this from the website.

    How do I lock/unlock the phone's keypad? To lock and unlock your phone's keypad, press and hold the left navigation key.
    Or, select Menu -> Settings -> Keyguard. Then highlight either of the options and press the OK button. You can set your phone to lock the keypad immediately, or automatically if no key is pressed after 30 seconds, 1 minute, or 5 minutes.

    To unlock the keypad: Press 1-2-3 in that order."

    good luck!
