Usually if one has a pattern for a lock code and if one enters the wrong pattern too many times it will ask you for the back-up PIN which you should have entered as a back up means to get into the phone after choosing the pattern code. I guess you never wrote it down and forgot it????
If you can't remember either the pattern code or the back up PIN, you might be in trouble.
Since you should remember the pattern code after having entered it multiple times you might be able to get around the back-up PIN request by powering off the phone, then powering it on and being careful to enter the pattern code accurately. Usually, the failed pattern code input isn't remembered by the phone after a power off.
I am assuming that you have lost the card that was holding the SIM card when you purchased it. If you can find it, it has your PIN and the PUK. The PUK is the unlock code for the SIM card, it is requested when the user enters the incorrect SIM pin 3 times. Please contact the service or network provider for the PUK, if you are unable to find the previously mentioned card. After you enter the PUK, you will be required to enter a new PIN this can be any number that you can easily remember. The customer service team at your service/network provider can easily give you your PUK after asking for a few details to confirm ownership.
We cannot provide Master codes for cell phones on FixYa as we are unable to verify the ownership of your phone.
You'll need to contact your cellular service provider and request Tech Support assistance. Once the ownership has been verified, Tech support will provide you with a Master unlocking code that you'll enter on your phone's keypad. (This is a free service.)
You'll then be able to enter a new PIN - hopefully, one you'll remember.
If you forgot your PIN [which means if you entered your PIN code
incorrectly 3 times], you will have to enter your PUK code (PIN
unblocking key). The PUK code is found at your SIM card pack if you
brought yours. After you entered your PUK code correctly, you will be
able to reset your PIN code.
Just be aware: If you entered your PIN code incorrectly 3 times, the
message says 'SIM card blocked' and you will have to enter your PUK
code. If you entered your PUK code incorrectly 10 times, then the
message says 'SIM card rejected'.
If your SIM card is rejected, you will have to buy a replacement SIM on your phone store.
If the problem is your phone all you need to do is visit the network provided by your phone. You need to get the unlock code for your phone. What is the model of your phone if you don't mind. So that I can help you get the site on how to unlock code.
Contact your cellular service provider and ask for tech support. After answering your security question, you'll be provided a security override code which you'll enter on your phone's keypad. Then, you can change your PIN to one you'll remember.
We don't provide security codes at FixYa as we are unable to verify the ownership of your phone.
