The Nokia default is 12345 if you didn't change it, but if you did change it and you've forgotten it.
You can recover the password. The best way is to download a file manager to your phone. I use 'Best Fileman' from http://www.smartphoneware.com/ It's for series 60, and 40. The trial version should be enough, it's only £5.60 anyway.
In the file manager you'll find under- C:\System\mmcstore -the file you're looking for, you have to rename the file- mmcstore.txt -then send it to another mobile (best way) or your PC via Bluetooth open it on the other phone and your password will be revealed.
Rename the file- mmcstore.txt -to just- mmcstore -there might be another file named- mmcstore.txt -to view your password rename one or the other- mmcstore1.txt -one is for your phone PIN number the other your MMC card.
Clear enough?

I have nokia 5610 xpress music , today i did restore factory settings of handset and fount out that my mmc card has been locked automatically, i did try the default 12345 as password but it did not work......


If you forget your memory card password, there is nothing either you or a service point can do. It is not possible to read the password from the memory card or from the device. Passwords cannot be disabled.
When you lock your memory card with a password, your device will remember it. Therefore, the device does not have to ask for the password every time you access the memory card. However, when you insert your memory card to another Nokia device, you are asked to re-enter the password. The password is asked because the memory card remembers the password protection settings, including the password.
Note: After you reflash your Nokia device and re-insert the memory card, you are asked to re-enter the password, as it has been erased from the device during the flashing process. You have to re-enter the password to get access to the memory card, and after that the device will remember the password again for future use.
If you have forgotten the password but you still want to try to use the memory card, try formatting it. If the formatting process is successful, the memory card is usable but all data on the memory card is erased.
To avoid unnecessary risks, write down your password somewhere and backup your memory card data regularly.

Corrupted memory card


3230 memory card corrupted

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!!

Memory card locked


The default security code for Nokia is 12345.

You can recover the password. Although if you reset your phone you probably won't be able to recover the old security code. Anyway this is how it's done.
The best way is to download a file manager to your phone. I use Best Fileman for my N70, from http://www.smartphoneware.com/ It's for series 60and 40. The trial version should be enough, it's only £5.60 anyway.
In the file manager (when installed on your phone) you'll find under- C:\System\mmcstore -the file you're looking for, you have to rename the file- mmcstore.txt -then send it to another mobile (best way) or your PC via bluetooth or USB, open it on the other phone and your password will be revealed.
Rename that file- mmcstore.txt -to just- mmcstore -there might be another file named- mmcstore.txt -to view your password rename one or the other- mmcstore1.txt -one is for your phone PIN number the other your MMC card.
Clear enough?
