    tried that, as well as the standard 1234, somewhere that it might be 00000000 (8 0's) but it wasn't. If he changed it and he doesn't know what it was, is there an override programmed into the handset? He's had it 3 weeks and I'm about to schedule a kick in the pants every week for the next 23 months........

    Since you have only had it 3 weeks take it to your service providers store and get them to reset it for you. I did that when i was going thru my divorce and my service provider was more than happy to reset it for me for free. If he sets another password I would make sure it is one that he provides to you in case he "forgets" or "swears he doesn't so it " again.. Kids are soo trying with theses issues some times my 17 year-old does the same thing when something gets screwed up and she has to come to me to fix it but if it was something good whether it was a direct result of her actions or not if it was a good thing she did it all by her lonesome and if it is something I have to fix well, she had nothing to do with it. I understand the swift kick in the pants theory absolutely..

    I hope this helps hun, please rate/vote my advice...

Mobile Phone Tips & Tricks: CHECK SIM-LOCK

<p><b>CHECK SIM-LOCK</b><br /> <p>Note - If you bought your Nokia on UK Vodafone or UK Cellnet you do not need to check this because they both transmit on GSM900, and they don't lock the phones. However if you bought your phone on UK Orange or UK One2one your phone may be blocked. The reason is that they both transmitt on GSM1800. To make a call on GSM1800 you need what is known as a "Dual band" phone. A dual band phone is able to transmit on both GSM900 and GSM1800, so they lock the phones so you can't use it with any other network simcard. If you find that your phone is locked you can try different software to unlock it. (we havn't found one that works yet), or you can ask your service provider who will gladly exchange the 10 digit code for about &pound;35.<br /> <p>This is how to check the status of the 4 different locks. Aslo don't try entering the wrong number, because after 3 times it will block the phone for good.<br /> <p> <br /> <p>There are 4 different locks on your Nokia phone.<br /> <ul> <li> <p>COUNTRY-LOCK<br /> <li> <p>NETWORK-LOCK<br /> <li> <p>PROVIDER-LOCK<br /> <li> <p>SIMCARD-LOCK<br /></li></ul> <p>The code to read out the sim-lock status of your phone is<br /> <p> <br /> <p>#PW+(MASTERCODE)+(Y)#<br /> <ul> <li> <p># = DOUBLE-CROSS<br /> <li> <p>W = PRESS "*" THREE TIMES<br /> <li> <p>P = PRESS "*" FOUR TIMES<br /> <li> <p>+ = PRESS "*" TWO TIMES<br /> <li> <p>MASTERCODE = 1234567890<br /> <li> <p>Y = NUMBER 1 TO 4<br /></li></ul> <p>The master code is a secret code. The code has 10 digits, To read out the sim-lock status you can enter every combination you want!<br /> <p>"Y" Shows the status of the network-lock. Here you can enter a number from "1" to "4". The "4" is for the sim-card lock.

I can't change my security code hw can i change it ? it is 12345 the dafualt one , and i want to change it how ?

I suggest you leave the security code alone, it is used to clear the phone call logs etc.
I recommend to put a pin code on the SIM card to lock your phone's keyboard. When you open your phone or unlock the keypad to access the phone's menu etc. then you need to enter the 4 digit pin code. This also prevents anyone accessing your phone unless they have this pin code.
