SOURCE: Forgot my password

Hi everyone

There's good news and bad news. The good news is that you might well have forgotten that the default password on the Samsung SGH-D500 phone is 00000000 (that's eight zeroes). The bad news is that if you've changed it to something else and that's what you've forgotten, you might well need to take the phone in to a service center to have them help you break it back open.Please put a good rating on my profile.

Kind regards

SOURCE: i forgot password on samsung sgh j210.. it as

Hi,
Please follow the instructions carefully but if the code fails to work, then ,make no more than 4 attempts as it may lock your phone. Can you let me know how you get on with it as well please. Thanks. Please also make sure that you back up any information on your phone as in certain cases the resetting also removes your contacts from the SIM and your pictures. j700 unlock method Basically the SP lock needs to be removed before the Network lock is disabled, so if you only have SP lock on, you need to turn the Network lock back to active, disable the SP lock and then disable Network lock. A reminder 'how to' is below: Do a custom reset: *2767*2878# once this has finished rebooting turn the phone off. Next a SIM card from a different service provider needs to be pushed half in - (Push it fully in then slide it back out by about 1/2 a centimeter), Turn on the phone - you will now see an "Insert SIM" message, Now perform a full reset: *2767*3855# When the phone powers off, quickly push the SIM card fully in, and let the phone power back up. After you do the reset, check and make sure that your Network lock is active by pressing *#7465625# If it isn't active you must use this code to reactivate it: *7465625*638*00000000*00000000# Then you have to deactivate the SP lock first. To do that you need to input: *7465625*77*00000000*00000000# (this will reset the lock) Then you enter: #7465625*77*00000000# (to disable the SP lock). Then you disable the Network lock: #7465625*638*00000000#

After the network has been back up, I have downloaded the firewall, which posed no problem, and then I tried changing my password by choosing "sign in" on the menu and following the directions...


I assume your dad was using your ps3 to sign in or his own? You can always go to the official playstation website and at the top it will ask for a sign in. After that choose the forgot password option and enter your information to recieve an email that will let you change your password. If you do not have access to the email account anymore you will have to contact customer support @ 1-800-345-Sony.

Forgot pass word


Take your phone back to where you bought it and explain to them what happened and they will just verify that you own the phone like ask personal information that you gave them to set up your phone. Then they might be able to unlock the phone for you.

Have a phone that was last used by my dad and he forgot the password, it is a MotoQ


When it asks for the password, press MENU and put "000000". If that doesn't work, using the USB cable and the P2K drivers, download the "P2K advanced editor", connect the phone with the program and in the P2KAE program go to the menu and find the passwords option, it will show you the passwords and you can also change or reset them.
