If you're talking about the normal lock code for access to the mobile standby mode, if you forgot it, then you need to go to the nearest Nokia center with proof of purchase to remove it. If you're talking about the NORMAL passcode for options such as formatting, then the default one should be "12345", sometimes it could be "00000", but if not, and you don't know what it is, you should also head to the nearest Nokia center to change it.
