Question about Nokia Cell Phones
I have attemted to enter my password many times as well as restarting my whole phone but it still doesnt give me enough time to write in my whole password and automatically says the password is incorrect however it hasnt even given me enough time to enter it
If you an not turn the phone off from the lockscreen, then hold down the home button and or the power button at the same time. Your phone should shut off after a minute, then simply turn it back on and the lockscreen app should be reset. If this does not work take it to your local dealer

If you try pin more than few predefined no of times your phone will ask PUK code which can also be given only by your service provider which is specific for each and every mobile number . Donot try PUK code many times or else your sim will be blocked and you will need a new sim.
Contact your sim customer care department over phone. Its free of cost to get the pin or puk no.
Go to the nearest service outlet of your service provider they can also help you.
There is no other go than the above procedure only your service provider can give it nobody else in this world nor any software.

you have probably cut a system files and the phone could not find the location.
try these troubleshooting.
>>switch off your phone, remove your battery and remove your sim card and also your sd card.
>>reinsert your battery and switch your phone on. if it didn't ask for password, then you have to reset it to factory settings, or you may want to back up your contacts first through NPS on to your pc. after you had backed it all up, try to make a hard reset or factory reset by typing this to your keypad, *2767*3855#. let me remind you that you will lost all your settings, but this will help you reinstall the firmware and correct errors which the phone encountered.
>>after hard reset, reinsert again your sim, sd card, battery and switch it on. if it still gives you problem then go to your nearest service center and have it checked. it may be needing a firmware reflash, the same way after you had remove your sim and sd card and reinserted the battery and it ask you for the same passcode and the unlock key is not functioning, it only means of firmware failure because of a system file relocation.
try not to touch anything from the device folder and delete some system files the next time..

I'm afraid you'll have to hard reset your device, in order to bypass the password request procedure. You, most probably, know that a hard reset will set your device to its factory defaults, thus deleting everything you have installed, as well as your personal data. Anyway, to hard reset your device, make sure its battery is at least 50% charged. If you are not sure, connect it to the wall charger for a couple of hours beforehand. Then, press and hold the power button for some 5 seconds, until you are prompted to completely turn your device off. Now, press and hold both the green call and the red end buttons. Then, pres and hold the power button, until the status indication led turns red. Relese the power button, but keep pressing the other two buttons, until you are prompted to press the space bar. Release the buttons and press the reset bar.
Hope you are able to see your device fully functional soon.
