Phil,
The PIN and PUK are security features provided by the service provider. The default are 12345 and 00000000 (eight zeros) respectively. And remember that wrong entry more than three times renders the SIM locked permanently. Either way, you must contact the helpline of the service provider to get a new PIN or PUK, whatever you need. They will tell you if you need a change of SIM, at a small charge to retain the old number. Please contact the service provider's helpline, even if from someone else's phone of the same provider.

Nokia 6600 slide pin code please


Sorry its a long list , but have included everything.Just pick out what you need... The default security code for Nokia2_bing.gif is 12345.
SIM pin code:
This is a pin code that locks the sim card2_bing.gif until you enter the correct code. This protects your account, even
if your sim is put into another handset2_bing.gif. To reset it you need the PUK code...
Pin Unlock Code (PUK)
If you miss keyed (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 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. The PUK code was printed on the plastic card that your SIM card was attached to.
Phone Security Code:
This locks the handset, as opposed to the sim card. You can also set some handsets2_bing.gif to only accept a "new" sim if the phone security code is entered.
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?

Special Code/Service Provider Lock Code:
This code is required to allow a phone locked to a particular network's SIM cards to be used with a SIM card from another network. Orange and T-mobile lock handsets in this way, though O2 and Vodafone are beginning to lock PAYG and WAP handsets. The unlock code varies from individual handset to handset.
Blacklisting:
This is not a security code, but it works like one! To help combat mobile phone thefts, the networks share a database of the IMEI (International Mobile Equipment Identity) of mobile phones that have been reported stolen. Once a phone is on this list, it will not be allowed to use any of the networks.
This can be a risk if you buy a second-hand phone, because if it has been stolen, or if an unscrupulous seller makes an insurance claim after selling, the phone you bought in good faith may be permanently disabled.
Be very careful to check the source of a second-hand phone!
Voicemail Pin:
This is a code that you choose to secure the voicemail/answer phone service on your mobile phone account.
If you do not set a voicemail PIN, you may not be able to access voicemail from anywhere but your own mobile phone. In some cases, leaving the voicemail PIN at the default can let other people listen to or delete messages left for you. There may be a default code (3333 on Vodafone), but you should change it straight away!

-----------------------------
The default security code for Nokia is 12345
IMEI: 356406017443168
Master code: 5335036136
Take your SIM card out first.

This is the code needed to reset the Security code, nothing else, and it’s for your phone only. You type in the security codes (anything) until the phone request the Master code; when it does, leave your phone still, don’t use it for 15 minutes, then type in the Master code.
