Re: reset times in samsung handset

You go on settings, then security settings, then change password and enter your own password and confirm it. This will then be the password to reset the call timers. :-D

My anti- theft seems to be set up and I want to use the handset for a different sim card. Every time i turn it on it sends a text using up the credit. I have not set this up so is there a factry defaut...

Default passwords are pretty hit and miss. Try: 1234, 0000, the last four of your cellular phone number, the last four of your social.
If none of those work, contact your wireless carrier to ask about resetting the SIM password. If the password you are looking for is for security settings and not the SIM card, contact Samsung; They have a nifty "Chat" with a technical support expert which is easy and overall quite pleasant to use.
They should be able to tell you if there is a default password, or how to remove the password; Though removal of passwords from cellular devices often require a "Factory Reset" which, if not backed up, will delete all personal data from the phone. Be aware of this if they tell you to perform a factory reset to remove the password.

I forgot my phone password

this happens all the time with samsungs. i went to and found some info to fix mine when i forgot mine as well lol. the problem is it will reset your password and all your other information as well :(

A phone lock or security code on most Samsung handsets can be overridden by performing a full reset on the device. This will set the security codes on the handset back to the default eight zero's (00000000).

Important: This reset restores the original factory settings and will erase all downloaded content, including ringtones, images, programs, and contacts stored in the internal memory. It does not erase data stored on the SIM card or memory card (if available). Make sure you have backed up contacts, calendar appointments, and other data before continuing.

1. Power off the handset

2. Remove the battery

3. Remove the SIM card

4. Reinsert battery ONLY

5. Turn handset on

6. At the Insert SIM prompt screen enter the following code: *2767*2878#

NOTE: If using a handset that was released after July 2009 use this code: *2767*3855#

7. The handset should display E2P custom reset

8. Power off handset

9. Reinsert SIM card

10. Power on handset

11. The phone should be unlocked

NOTE: If you didn't get a E2P custom reset or a Full reset message on the handset your Samsung model may need an MCK code. You will have to call technical support for this code. Please have your IMEI number ready to expedite the process for this code. Your IMEI number is located on a label on the back of the phone,under the battery.

My son put the wrong password in his phone 3 time and now i need a puk code???

The PUK code or Personal Unblocking Keys are a security device that deters people from using your handset. For as you see 3 failed attempts at your pin means you need a PUK.

The only place you can get a PUK is from your service provider.

This means that you are going to have to phone them up from another phone.

You will be asked a series of questions to verify you are in fact the true owner of the handset and you will also be asked for the handsets IMEI number. This is located on a sticker underneath the battery or you can get it by typing *#06# into the blocked handset.

As I say...Only your service provider can issue you with the correct PUK and guessing will ultimately BLOCK your handset permanently.

I hope this helps? :)

If it ask for password try first to key in (8 zeros) 0000000 this is the default lock password.

*2767*2878# : Custom EEEPROM Reset
