How do unlock security code from my 2090 mobile phone


Mobile phones and SIM cards come with many codes like the PIN code, PUK code, restriction code and security code, to prevent unauthorised usage. With the advancements in telephony, information to unlock mobile phones and SIM cards is widely available. Phone unlocking results in the cancellation of the electronic code so that it can be used with any SIM card - which is quite common. Phone locking is generally done by the operators to restrict unwarranted usage, which helps if the phone gets stolen. At Kioseka, no tips to unlock mobile phones and SIM cards are provided. Kioskea does not provide this information, as it amounts to piracy. Everyday mobiles are stolen, although you may be honest, we do not wish to help potential criminals. You must be able prove that you are the phone's legitimate owner and that is impossible to do through Internet.

How to lock a Samsung Intensity cell phone


Unlike flip phones, cell phones like the Samsung Intensity are subject to accidental keypad-pressing and dialing when they are in your pocket, purse, or even a holster. To avoid unintentionally using up voice or data minutes, you can lock your phone and temporarily disable the keypad.

There are two ways to lock a Samsung Intensity - the standard keypad lock and the security lock.

- To use the standard lock:

You can lock your phone at any time from the main screen by holding down the "0" key for about two seconds. The keypad will immediately lock, and you won't be able to use any functions or make any calls (except for calling the local emergency number). To unlock the phone, press the right option button (in the upper right corner of the keypad, next to the End button) followed by the Menu or OK button.

You can also set up Auto Key Lock, which will automatically lock your keypad after the backlight turns off. The Auto Key Lock setting can be found in the menu under Settings & Tools > Phone Settings > Auto Key Lock.

- To use the security lock:

The security lock also prevents your keypad from being used, but it requires a code to be entered in order to unlock the phone. To enable the security lock, go into the main menu and select Settings & Tools > Phone Settings > Security > Lock Phone Now. (You'll need to know your phone's security code in order to access this setting -- by default it is typically the last four digits of your phone number.)

To unlock the phone, press the right option button and then enter your phone's security code, followed by the OK button.

You can set your phone to go into security lock mode as soon as you turn it on by enabling Phone Lock Setting under the Security menu. Every time you turn your phone on, you'll need to enter the security code in order to unlock it. However, once you unlock it, it will remain unlocked until you either manually lock it or turn it off and then back on.

How could i put a lock to my c7 nokia phone


Protect your device Set your device to lock automatically
Want to protect your device against unauthorised use? Define a lock code, and set your device to lock itself automatically when you're not using it.
1 Select Menu > Settings and Phone > Phone mgmt. > Security settings > Phone and SIM card.
2 Select Lock code, and enter a lock code. A minimum of 4 characters is required, and numbers, symbols, and upper and lower case letters can be used. Keep the lock code secret and in a safe place separate from your device. If you forget the lock code and your device is locked, your device will require service. Additional charges may apply, and all the personal data in your device may be deleted. For more information, contact a Nokia Care point or your device dealer.
3 Select Phone autolock period, and define the length of time after which the device is locked automatically.
Lock your device manually
In the home screen, press , select Lock phone, and enter the lock code. Unlock your device Slide the lock switch, enter the lock code, and select OK. If the lock switch is out of reach, press the menu key, and select Unlock.

Select Menu > Settings and Phone > Phone mgmt. > Security > Phone and SIM card. > Lock Code

The lock code is used to unlock the device. To avoid unauthorised use of your device, change the lock code. The preset code is 12345. The new code can be 4-255 characters long. Alphanumeric characters and both uppercase and lowercase characters can be used. The device notifies you if the lock code is not properly formatted.

Hope i helped you.

Thanks.

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.

The phone will require
the password on power-up.

and select Settings
Security Change

.
2. Enter the default password,
00000000, and press <OK>.
3. Enter a new 4- to 8-digit
password and press <OK>.
4. Enter the new password again
and press <OK>.

eight zeros is the default, if you've changed it, you'll need the unblocking key from your service provider. Or if you've still got the box the phone came in, you'll find the puk number on there.
