Forgotten Sim code

Hi i created a sim lock code a while back but no longer remember what it is. Now everytime i power on the phone it asks me for the lock code. I dont know what it is anymore. Is there any way i can just reset the whole phone system? i tried using the method of holding down the 3, green and * key but that didnt work. Any help would be great. right now this is paper weight. Thank You in advance

    Owner NOKIA N95:

    I have a Nokia N95 W/A(1)GB chip. I put a personal pass code in my phone (4) months ago and I have forgotten what it was. Only inputted it once.

    I do not believe it is the sim code password but a personal password I made up and have inputed 20 different variations already (I heard the phone goes to security/sleep mode after (3) wrong tries to protect the memory chip data from being accessed.

     For some reason the Nokia phone never me asked for it since I first entered it (4) months ago. Then for whatever brilliant reason, I went into the Tools menu + switched the images and video I had taken (many are important to me) to be saved to the memory chip from the phone memory.

     After that my phone acted a little quirky and then started asking me for my pass code to access those files. I didn't protect any other apps with it, just my images _ video; @ least I don't believe I did. I figured out a way to retrieve the images by removing and reinserting the memory chip. It worked but if the phone battery ran out of juice, it would go back to asking for my pass code. 

    I took it to my dealer where I bought the phone and they are the best. They installed new software (without asking me) I believe, but they could not recover my personal pass code, which Nokia should tell you (intensely) that if you forget it , there is no way to retrieve it and you have to reformat the chip and lose all your images. 

    I cannot do that, especially when the last photo of a friend who just died is on that memory chip. I have a Mac and PC Suite, which I believe is incompatible w/a Mac computer. I know I should have backed my images up by USB but I never thought this could happen.

    I am truly helpless because the more I try to solve this, the more I believe I will harm the data chip. Maybe I will just remove the chip and buy another one until I get some striking info.

    I called Nokia but they were no help. There has to be a backdoor in. Anyone who can fix this situation will receive more than a thanks.

    Thanks for reading this long; I'm a writer + have to explain the whole story.

    Thanks to anyone who can help me out.

How can I remove the SIM LOCK yet I have forgotten my SIM LOCK. The phone is Samsung GT-C5212i

This is named not "SIM unlock code", this is Network Unlock Code". Device is asking for it when you insert the SIM not from your carrier.

My sim is blocked only says puk blocked contact operator so wt should i do. so plz suggest me any idea

if your phone is asking for the PUK code then this is the code for the sim card if it lets you enter a code then all you need to do is contact your service provider and give ask them for the PUK code, they will give you this for free over the phone.

if how ever you have entered the PUK code wrong a certain amount of times then this will block the sim card and it will mean that this sim card can no longer be used, so if your phone is asking for the PUK code then call your service provider and ask them for the code, this will then allow you to use that sim card.

if the PUK code is blocked and can no longer be used then your only other option would be to get another sim card for the phone that is for the network your phone can use if the sim card thats asking for the PUK code is say from vodafone then you need to get another vodafone sim card that is unless you phone has been duel banded and can use any network.

when you get a new sim card you should get the PUK code for that sim card so if you do go for a new sim card then keep this number handy in case you ever need the PUK code again.

The PUK code is assigned to every single sim cad made and every single sim card has its own unique code that can only be found through your service provider so if they give you the PUK code for the sim card thats asking then remember this code will only work with that sim card and no other.

from what i can remember you get 10 chances of getting the PUK right before the sim card gets locked and once the seim card is locked it can never be unlocked so its not wort trying to guess the code as its a random 8 or 11 digit number so guessing the correct code would be harder than winning the lottery.

Nokia 1100 phone lock code is forgotten

Its not asking for phone password ,as you told that you have access to phone with old sim but not with new one,so its definitely asking for PUK code which you can get from calling the customer care of new sim card.......

If still it is asking for security password then let me know and reply with your IMEI no of your mobile by inserting the old sim card and then type *#06# at the screen,you will come to know your IMEI no.
