The only way to unlock a PIN locked unit is to enter the correct PIN number, or take the unit to the location at which the PIN was entered. Other than that, your only other option is to send the unit back to Garmin.

SOURCE: unable to see maps it

The pin that it is asking for is a security pin that can not be reset. It is to prevent a stolen GPS from being used. If the person you purchased it from can not get you the pin then you must contact Garmin and they will have the information on file if the unit was registered. You most likely will have to send the unit back to Garmin to be reset. I have attached the link to Garmin. Thanks for using FixYa

The internet guy was just here today in my new place but i wasn't here with him.To connect to the internet it is asking for a 8 digit pin code located on the bottom of the router. I can seee several...


When you say, "IT is asking for..." exactly what is "it?"
It sounds to me like you have a Linksys wireless interface (possibly USB) on your PC which assumes it is going to connect to a Linksys router, which would have that PIN code on it... but you don't own a Linksys router and therefore the whole PIN code protocol is futile.
Bypass the proprietary PIN code nonsense and enter the WEP or WPA password the installer gave you (if any; it's possible he didn't set any) to connect to your access point from your PC.

I have a nokia 5310 and is asking me for a security code wich i dont know it


I have a Nokia 6301, and according to the manual, most acess codes are set by the service provider, or come with the sim card. The plastic card your sim card was in should have the pin codes, if you cant find it, call your service provider's customer service.

SIMNew SIM PIN


a SIM Card has a PIN (whether the owner puts a PIN or not), it's use is to prevent other persons to use your cellular/mobile phone if it's turn off or w/o your knowledge. I believe (but not sure) usually the default PIN is 1234 but it also depends on what kind of SIM CARD you use (the brand). Usually when you bought a SIM CARD, it includes a paper/s that include your SIM DEFAULT NUMBER, PUK codes, etc. Try to follow the instructions and if doesn't work, call your SIM CARD provider. I hope I can help you.
