Re: 6288 security code problem

The security code has nothing to do with your IMEI (International Mobile Equipment Identity).

It may be asking for a security code. That is a 5 digit number.
Put the original SIM in the phone, in tools/settings/phone/security, turn off phone security code.
You should be able to use your phone with any SIM card now.

SIM lock and PHONE lock are different and do a different job.

SIM locks the card, to prevent anyone else having access to your personal details, stored on the card.

Phone locks the phone, to prevent anyone else using it with another SIM card.

To reset it go to your service provider and they will do it for you, free of charge.

Go to the site and enter your phone’s IMIE number and press Enter then u’ll get the master code of your phone. 2. This master code can be used as lock code when we are asked for the security code.
3.But always we can’t remember master code and we want to use an easier lock-code then we can set a new security code of our own wish by giving the Master-code as our old security code when asked for old code while resetting security code.
e.g.NOKIA 6600
Tools -> Settings ->(scroll down) security -> Phone and SIM ->(scroll down) Lock Code
Then it asks for old code where u can type the master code and then set the new code as you wish.
When during formatting u are asked for lock code you can also enter Master code.
To get IMIE of your phone type *#06# on screen of your phones.

6288 security code

hi if the phone is asking you for the code when you switch it on then i can help you and give you the master code but this code wont work if the code has been entered wrong more than five times if it has been entered wrong more than 5 times then you need flash lead and unlocking software witch costs more than the phone.
Here is your master code enter this when asked only works if the phone asks for security code as soon as its switched on if you just want to change a code you have forgotten but can still acess your phone then this code wont work and youll need the lead and software ok.
your code is 5654201301
enter this when asked let me know if you need further assistance ok
