Ashley, This is a problem with lock codes. One tries to safeguard the device with a lock code and sooner or later get locked out. Same has happened to you too. On this site about 25% requests are for a magic key to open any and all locks. This needs a change of the door. What I want to tell you is that the only solution to a lost code is to re-install the firmware. And please get it done from SE service centre only. Their methods are very safe. I know you would not like my solution but it is like cancer. We dont like it either, but when we get it we have to resort to the painful treatment. So is the problem now. Even on a computer either you know the administrator's password or you re-install Windows.

Hi there,

Is the password was a Security password, or the PIN/SIM password?

Regarding with your problem, you better call your network provider for this issue, they can assist you and remotely unlock your phone.

Hope this initial info helps.

PUK code for setting or open sim code


1. Browse to your carrier's website and enter your account login, or follow the prompts to register. This will include entering details such as your telephone number, name and a password. The password on the website account is unrelated to the SIM card password.
2. Select "My Phone" or "About Phone" or something similar and look for a settings summary.
3. Enter the PUK code from the website on the phone when prompted to do so. The phone will prompt you after three incorrect PIN number attempts. You will have 10 attempts to enter the correct PUK code before your SIM card locks up and becomes unusable.
4. Enter a new four- to eight-digit PIN code when prompted to do so. The phone will prompt you after you have successfully entered the PUK code.
5. Re-enter the desired PIN code to confirm.

How to use a sim subsidy code


With a new SIM card many users receive the message "enter subsidy password". This message indicates that the phone is locked to the current provider, and cannot be used with a new cell network. Obtain a Subsidy Password, also know as an IMEI unlock code. The Motorola subsidy password is an 8 or 16 digit code that unlocks your phone (Remove service provider lock) for use with other cellular providers. Search Google for Motorola Unlock Codes for a list of retailers. Codes are usually provided within 24 to 48 hours, and cost around $10 to $25 (Price will vary depending on Code seller).
Enter the subisdy code into the phone. To enter the IMEI code into the phone, all you need to do is insert a SIM card from a different network to the one that your phone is locked to. This will prompt the phone to display "Enter subsidy password". Just enter the 8 or 16 digit code, and your Motorola phone is unlocked.

Securing your Shine
Secure your LG Shine and your account from thieves by locking your phone and your SIM card Losing a phone through accident or to a light-fingered thief is annoying, frustrating and potentially very costly, especially if the 'finder' uses your SIM card to make expensive calls. You can, however, lock both your phone and your SIM card with four-figure PIN numbers to prevent unauthorised use.
The first line of defence is to set a SIM card PIN. This means that whenever you turn on your handset you have to enter a PIN code before the SIM can be used. The default PIN code for your SIM is dependent upon your network; usually it will be found in a small booklet that came with the SIM card.
The PIN can be enabled, disabled or changed from the Security menu – but you only get three chances to enter it correctly. After those three, the SIM will get locked and can only be unlocked by entering the PUK (PIN Unlocking Key) which your network can give you. Enter the PUK incorrectly 10 times, and the SIM will be irrecoverably locked.
To activate a PIN code request, open the main menu by clicking on the scroll wheel. Click 9 to access the Settings menu and click 6 to enter the Security menu. The first item is PIN code request - click 1 or OK to open it. By default this will be set to off. To activate a PIN request, click 1; you'll now be prompted to enter the four-digit PIN. When you've done this, click OK, and if the pin was correct, you'll see the confirmation message 'Complete'.
To deactivate the PIN code request, you would simply select Off from the menu by pressing 2; you'll need to enter the PIN code whenever you change this setting.
PIN code request prevents another user from using your lost or stolen SIM card in their own phone. To lock your phone, and thus render it useless to a thief, you can activate Phone lock.
Two levels of handset locking are available. The first - called 'When power on' in the Phone lock menu - is to require an unlock code to be entered whenever the handset is switched on. This can be confusing and irritating when used together with the SIM PIN, so a second option is to only request the handset unlock code when the SIM card has been changed - called 'When SIM changed'. This means that if your phone is stolen, the thief can't use their own SIM card in it as the phone will need a PIN code to unlock.
To activate either option, go to the Security menu (clicking 9 for Settings and 6 for Security from the main menu) and click 2 to enter the Phone lock menu. Click 2 to activate When power on or 3 to activate When SIM changed. In either case you'll be prompted to enter the security code. By default this is 0000. Enter the code and click OK to confirm.
To change either code, go to the Security menu again (clicking 9 for Settings and 6 for Security from the main menu) and click 5 to enter the Change codes menu. To change the handset's security code, click 1 to select Security code, or to change the SIM PIN, click 2 to select PIN1 code. In either case you'll be prompted to enter the old code before entering the new code twice, clicking OK to confirm each time.
