Hi.... i am using nokia 2690 how to lock the cell with password ???? plz guide me sir :(


Select Menu > Settings > Security and from the following options:
  • PIN code request or UPIN code request-to set the phone to ask for your PIN or UPIN code every time the phone is switched on. Some SIM cards do not allow the code request to be turned off.
  • Security level > Phone-to set the phone to ask for the security code whenever a new SIM card is inserted into the phone. If you select Memory, the phone asks for the security code when the SIM card memory is selected, and you want to change the memory in use.
  • Access codes-to change the security code (default code is 12345), PIN code, PIN2 code, or restriction password.

When I tried to put a password on sim lock I put the password i.e. 3391. Then asked put the PUK code. Again I put the password 3911. Then again asking PUK code. Then the phone is still that condition. ...


PUK stands for Personal Unblocking Key. This is a uniqueeight digit code specific to your SIM card. This is required when the PINnumber to unlock your mobile phone is entered incorrectly 3 times. You are thengiven 10 attempts to enter your PUK code. If an incorrect PUK code is enteredafter the 10th attempt, you will block your SIM card permanently and willrequire a new SIM card from your mobile phone provider.
PUK codes can be obtained through the following ways - The PUK code is in your SIM card documentation Starter Pack.If you do not have this then -Please contact your phone service provider.
Your cell phone service provider can give you the PUK code once you give themyour account details and they have confirmed your identity.

I switched my cell replaced the sim card, and


The firmware 'software' is corrupted (gone as your friends say).
The solution to this is to flash the phone (puting new software).
Take it to a service center and they will flash it for you.
It shouldn't cost much.

Forgot password


This will reset the phone's settings to factory default. Use this at your own risk:

1. Switch off phone.
2. Remove the sim card.
3. Turn on the phone.
4. Type *2767*2878#
5. Use 00000000 when it ask you again for the phone lock code.

I bought a cell phone from a friend


sounds like the phone was set up to ask for a sim password from the old user. Now that you put your card in it wants the password but the phone does not know the card has been switched. Ask your buddy the code to unlock the bios and disable the password. If al lelse fails put his old sim card back in and then disable the password for the sim card. This feature is a security so people cannot access your contact stored on your sim card.

How will i have a code on my n70?


well, you can choose to use a 'PIN code' or a 'Lock code' or 'Memory card lock'

1. PIN code actually locks up your SIM card, so anywhere you put your SIM card, the message on your SIM card will not be read by anybody without knowing your password. It'll ask you password each time you switch on your phone, but after switched on, it'll not be locked anymore, so anyone can read your phone after switched on.

2.while Lock code, locks your mobile phone like 'keypad lock', the different is, instead of just pressing , left softkey and * button, you need to put password on it (it lock after certain idle time - or you can choose to lock it anytime you want by pressing the on-off switch one time (don;t press too long) and choose the belowest which said lock phone ). this type of lock is commonly used.

3.Memory card lock, locks any application which access your memory card, such as images, text, songs, data that is stored on your memory card. but this type of lock, often bring troubles when the memory card get corrupted. so I suggest number 2 type of lock (lock code)



WARNING!!! all password should be remembered, as if you forgot those password, no body can help you unless technician.. see those articles which people post when they forget their password, so you know the risk and the consequences. But they're actually safe as long as you remember ^^

Good luck, all the best!!
