Since it's Phone Lock, service provider will not helpful. I hope you yourself changed the code and have forgotten. This is very common, but the solution doesn't work for all. There are few tips,
1. Formatting.
2. Unlock using Nokia Flashing software
3. Unlock using Nokia Updater.

Formatting has several methods, using the button or using codes. (I can't guarantee this will definitely work for you, but it's worth trying and there's no cost either).

(will loose everything saved on the phone) On the main menu, type in *#7370# and watch what happens, if you are asked to enter a code, then type in 12345 or anything you want. [type in the code as you type in numbers before dialing a number].

Another code is (not actually formatting, but hard factory reset), *#7780# with the same procedure as mentioned above.

The second method is using unlocking software like UFS box or Jax box. This is 100% and there's not side effect either. But to do this, you have to visit a nokia service center or Nokia Mobile repairing Shop. The hardware and the software cost more than the price of your handset, so don't try to purchase, rather get it unlocked from them (if other methods don't work).

The third is, formatting the handset by pressing the buttons on the handset.
First switch off the phone, [if there's contacts, smses, saved on your phone, everything will be lost. If you already did a backup, then you are saved from this doom..:-)]. While the phone is Off, press * + # + Power button (press *, # and power button simultaneously)

You'll need to confirm any warning, simply press "yes" or "Ok" and proceed.

The last method is using the Nokia Updater. I hope you've heard about this, but this is risky if done without patience or incorrectly. Once failed, then the only solution is Flashing, no other way to get it worked again.
Download the nokia updater from here (click here) (faqs here)
Download and install the Nokia Updater, [you'll need to restart your computer after it's installed]. Now connect the phone using the usb cable and select the connection mode as "Nokia Mode" or "USB Mode" and open the Nokia Updater on your computer, it'll detect the phone and will give you the step by step onscreen instructions on how to update the firmware. Please note that this is to be done while the computer is connected to the internet and while doing so, the connection should not be fluctuate or down. Don't every pull out the cable or don't every touch the phone/cable while running, keep the phone on a stable position and start.

This are all the methods to unlock your phone's security code. If all the manual methods don't work, the only and final solution is Nokia Mobile Repairing shop or Nokia Service Center.

If you need further help, let me know.

Good luck.

Thanks for using FixYa.

Nokia 3110c mobile, i forgot security how to reset security code?

Hi, I will be able to get you the master code to turn off the security code and reset to what it was when it was new (0000) it will remove the security code and won't ask for the code.
The code will only work if it is asking for the security code when you switch the phone on.
The code won't work if the wrong code has been entered more than 5 times, if it has the phone is hard locked and can only be unlocked using flashlead and unlocking software. Shops will not do this anymore as it is illegal!! You might be able to buy the software of the net.
If the phone is not hard locked i will be able to give you the master code that will reset the security code giving you access to your phone.
I will need your IMEI number, which is on the back of the phone under the battery and looks like 123456/12/123456/1 it is 15 digits long.
I will need this information as every phone has a different master code based on the IMEI number.
Let me know and i will be able to assist you further.

Resetting Security Code

SIM pin code:
This is a pin code that locks the sim card until you enter the correct code. This protects your account, even
if your sim is put into another handset. To reset it, you need the PUK code:
Pin Unlock Code (PUK)
If you miss key (or forget) your SIM pin code, and enter the wrong one 3-5 times in a row, the SIM will lock up, and you’ll need to enter the PUK unlock code to release it. You should ask your Network Service Provider for this code when you need it. Don’t try to guess it, because after a few wrong guesses, the SIM card will be permanently disabled.
Phone Security Code:
This locks the handset, as opposed to the sim card. You can also set some handsets to only accept a “new” sim if the phone security code is entered. To reset it, you need the Master code code:
Master Reset Code
Sometimes known as the Master Code, this allows you to unlock a handset if you have entered the Security Code wrongly too many times.
Which is the one that you want?
The default security code for Nokia is 12345
