SOURCE: Resetting Security Code
SIM pin code:
This is a pin code that locks the sim card until you enter the correct code. This protects your account, even
if your sim is put into another handset. To reset it, you need the PUK code:
Pin Unlock Code (PUK)
If you miss key (or forget) your SIM pin code, and enter the wrong one 3-5 times in a row, the SIM will lock up, and you’ll need to enter the PUK unlock code to release it. You should ask your Network Service Provider for this code when you need it. Don’t try to guess it, because after a few wrong guesses, the SIM card will be permanently disabled.
Phone Security Code:
This locks the handset, as opposed to the sim card. You can also set some handsets to only accept a “new” sim if the phone security code is entered. To reset it, you need the Master code code:
Master Reset Code
Sometimes known as the Master Code, this allows you to unlock a handset if you have entered the Security Code wrongly too many times.
Which is the one that you want?
The default security code for Nokia is 12345

Hi, I will be able to get you the master code to turn off the security code and reset to what it was when it was new (0000) it will remove the security code and won't ask for the code.
The code will only work if it is asking for the security code when you switch the phone on.
The code won't work if the wrong code has been entered more than 5 times, if it has the phone is hard locked and can only be unlocked using flashlead and unlocking software. Shops will not do this anymore as it is illegal!! You might be able to buy the software of the net.
If the phone is not hard locked i will be able to give you the master code that will reset the security code giving you access to your phone.
I will need your IMEI number, which is on the back of the phone under the battery and looks like 123456/12/123456/1 it is 15 digits long.
I will need this information as every phone has a different master code based on the IMEI number.
Let me know and i will be able to assist you further.
