There's good news and bad news. The good news is that you might well have forgotten that the default password on the Samsung SGH-D500 phone is 00000000 (that's eight zeroes). The bad news is that if you've changed it to something else and that's what you've forgotten, you might well need to take the phone in to a service center to have them help you break it back open.
First, here's what Samsung says about working with passwords on the D500: Security
Use this menu to protect the phone against unauthorized use by managing the several access codes of your phone and SIM card.
Note: If you enter an incorrect PIN/PIN 2 three times in succession, the SIM card is blocked. To unblock it you need to enter your PUK/PUK2 (Personal Unblocking Key). The codes are supplied by your network operator.
The 4-to-8-digit PIN (personal identification number) protects your SIM card against unauthorised use. When this feature is enabled, the phone requires your PIN each time it is switched on.
Use this menu to change your PIN. The PIN Check feature must be enabled to use this feature.
The Phone Lock feature locks the phone from unauthorised use.
When this feature is enabled, you must enter a 4- to 8-digit phone password each time the phone is switched on.
The password is preset to 00000000. To change the password, use the Change Password menu.
Use this menu to change your phone password. The password is preset to 00000000.
Use this menu to lock your media contents, including MMS messages, emails, images, videos, music files and sounds: 1. Press [OK/i] to check the item(s) to lock. 2. Press Save to lock the marked items. 3. Enter the phone password and press OK. To access a locked item, you need to enter the phone password.
If that doesn't help you, as I said, you'll need to take your phone to the local service center and ask them for help. Just a tip: bring some sort of proof of purchase or ownership so they can differentiate between you losing your password and someone else showing up with a stolen telephone.
phone your service provider and they will upgrade your gprs over the air, they should talk you through it should you have any problems? i'm with orange and it took me a couple of minutes to do this upgrade,
