The only ways to unlock a PIN locked Garmin are to enter the correct PIN number, or take the unit to the location at which the PIN was initially entered. Your only other option is to send the unit to Garmin.

My pin doesnt work and I dont know how to reset my garmin nuvi 205

If your pin does not work, you need to go to your security location (location of when you set the pin the very first time) to unlock it. If you don't remember that you need to call garmin at 1-800-800-1020 to set up an rma to send the unit in to have it unlocked.

Trying to setup internet and misplaced keycode

If you don't remember the password you will need to reset and reconfigure the router. There should be a small button (or pin hole you will need a paper clip to stick in), generally labeled "reset". Hold this in for at least 10 seconds and reconfigure the router.
If you have a windows device that has been connected, you could download SIW (google SIW download) run it, and go to the password section, it will show your wifi password.
Comment if you need more assistance.

My son can't remember the pin numbers for his Dsi. How can we reset them?

Hello there,
According to Nintendo's FAQ for the DSi:
  • If you don't know the PIN, select "I forgot," then select the empty text box for the answer to the secret question and enter it using the on-screen keyboard. Select "OK" to continue.

    My signal is good on my labtop,but i cannot connect,there is a lock ,how to removed it

    The lock means that your wireless network is secured with a password. If the router is yours, and you don't remember what the password is, you can reset the router with the reset button on the back end of the router. This button is very small, needing a pin to push it. It's located right next to the antenna, and has a small arrow pointing at it.
    While holding the button down, watch for the light on the front labeled "test" to light. This should take 5-10 seconds. Don't release the button until the light comes on. Once it does, let go of the button and wait for the router to reboot.

    Hi mate ive got a sony ericsson w850i mobile and icant remember the code can you help me my imei 35282601-890424-5-12

    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?

    IMEI: 35282601890424512 has too many digits. IMEI has only 15 digits. It's needed to calculate the Master code which will reset the Security code.

    Remote access

    Call into your unit, press the * key twice, enter your pin and listen to the menu options. If you need the manual, you can go to for a free download. Look on the left hand side for user guides and manual link, that will take you to a list of manuals for your model. In the meantime, if you forgot your pin you will need to reset the pin and choose a new one since remote admin will not work with the default pin of 0000. If you need to reset your pin, on your base push Menu, scroll to System Settings, then dial * 6 5 #, that will reset your pin. Then go back into system settings and change the default pin of 0000 to a four digit code you can remember. Once that is done you can call into your machine remotely, and when you hear your greeting playing dial * twice, enter your pin and your in.
