First, make sure the CAPS LOCK is not on, then try to access it through safe mode using the Administrator Account. If that doesn't work, as a last resort, you can use a friends PC to burn a Password Recovery CD from this website:

Make sure you follow the walkthrough to a T, as anything changes made could mess it up.

I bought one SAMSUNg SGH-J700i. When I am trying to poweron the phone it asks for Phone lock password which is 1234 and opened but immediatly it asks for SIM loack password. But I am not awrae of any SIM...


If u enter PIN code incorrectly 3 times, PIN will be blocked n phone will ask you for PUK(Personal Unblocking Key). This is a 8 digit code. If u enter Incorrect PUK for 10 times Your SIM will be lock permanently.

Your cell phone service provider can(Call from other no. n ask tell them for puk of ur no.) give you the PUK code aft3r answering simple security question.
Later enter PUK than enter new PIN, confirm new pin. Go to -Setting
-Security
-SIM lock
-off
Disable SIM n Later Phone Lock
PS:(You have to block your PIN to get access to PUK,
Default PIN- 0000, 12345)

MAC-Changed a password and didn't have MAC remember it and want it to now but don't know how. I know it's in keychain but can't found the -remember password-


Go to the blue magnifying glass in the upper right hand corner. That is the search Mac button. click it and type in the word keychain. You will see a folder called Keychains. Click that and you will have an see something called System.keychain. Click on that to open it. On the top it should say Keychain Access and it should have a list of all the items with passwords you have on your computor. (such as your airport, aol, msn or whatever). Click the one you want and in the bottom left corner is a box saying Show password. Hopefully it will just show it to you without requiring another password. However, It may ask first for your Administrative password. Hopefully you know that, and can put it in if it is required to grant access to the password you want. It will ask you whether always want to allow this or just once. I would say Always. (it is easier for future use). If you find this Answer helpful I would so much appreciate a positive vote, a testimonial or anything like that!! Good luck!

My daughter has a clamshell laptop and she changed her master password about 2 months ago and can not remember it. Is there anyway to reset the password?


Resetting the original administrator account password Follow these steps to reset a password when there is only one administrator account on the computer, or if the original administrator account (of several) needs a password reset. "Original" administrator account refers to the one that was created immediately after installing Mac OS X. If the original administrator password is known, the original administrator user may reset the passwords of other administrator accounts using the steps described above.
  1. Start up from a Mac OS X Install CD (one whose version is closest the the version of Mac OS X installed). You should first disable Open Firmware password protection, if it is enabled. Hold the C key as the computer starts.
  2. Choose Reset Password from the Installer menu (or Utilities menu in Mac OS X 10.4 Tiger). Tip: If you don't see this menu or menu choice, you're probably not started from the CD yet.
  3. Select your Mac OS X hard disk volume.
Set the user name of your original administrator account.

Important: Do not select "System Administrator (root)". This is actually a reference to the root user. Do not confuse it with a normal administrator account.
  • Enter a new password.
  • Click Save.

  • If you want your default keychain to be unlocked automatically when you log in, synchronize your Keychain Access and account login passwords by doing this:
    1. Open Keychain Access (you can get to it by choosing Utilities from the Go menu in the Finder).
    2. From the Edit menu, choose Change Password for Keychain "login."
    3. Type the former password of the account that you are currently logged in to, then click OK.
    4. If you entered the correct password, a new window appears; enter the original password again in the Current Password field.
    5. In the New Password field, type the password that matches your current account password.
    6. Re-enter the newer password in the Verify field, then click OK.
    In Mac OS X 10.4 Tiger, if you change your account's password using your Mac OS X Tiger Install disc (or if your network-based account password is changed due to a network admin forcing a password change), your default keychain password (which uses the same initial password as your user account) does not change. Because of this, you will be prompted to enter a keychain password each time an application requires authentication that your keychain would normally provide.

    I don't remember my original (former) account password If this is the case, you'll have to delete the keychain.
    1. In Keychain Access, choose Keychain List from the Edit menu.
    2. Delete the "login" keychain.
    The next time you log in to the account, you can save your current password in a keychain.

    If I could be of further assistance, let me know. If this helps or solves the issue, please rate it.
    Thanks, Joe

    Hi-

    If you forgot your password you can try guessing until 3-5 tries and if t locks there is a pin that can open it that came with your phone company, better yet call your phone manufacturer so they can walk you through the steps and give you codes as well
