Samsung password reset


Im assuming its a samsung phone
Samsung cell phones come with many security features.
In addition to the common feature of preventing calls after a period of inactivity, some Samsung phones also allow you to prevent others' use of your phone's SIM chip and access to your files.
One password unlocks the various locks, except for two other passwords used for the SIM chip. The syntax of the menu items to click to reset a password differ somewhat between Samsung models but you can figure out roughly how to apply instructions for one phone to another.

1
Lock the phone from making calls by clicking "Start" or "Menu," "Security Settings" (or "More" and then "Security"), and "Phone Lock" or "Device Lock."
Change the password by clicking "Start" or "Menu," "Security Settings," and "Change Password." Then enter a new password.

2
Set the phone to work only with the current SIM chip by clicking "Menu," "Security Settings," and "SIM Lock."
Enter a new password when prompted.

3
Prevent unauthorized use of your SIM card by clicking "Menu," "Security Settings," and "PIN Lock." Type a new PIN when prompted.
4
Prohibit access to your files, messages and contact list by clicking "Menu," "Security Settings," and "Privacy Lock."
Enter the password from Step 1 when prompted to unlock access.
Reset the file lock/messages/contact password by resetting the phone lock password, as in
Step 1

I bought one SAMSUNg SGH-J700i. When I am trying to poweron the phone it asks for Phone lock password which is 1234 and opened but immediatly it asks for SIM loack password. But I am not awrae of any SIM...


If u enter PIN code incorrectly 3 times, PIN will be blocked n phone will ask you for PUK(Personal Unblocking Key). This is a 8 digit code. If u enter Incorrect PUK for 10 times Your SIM will be lock permanently.

Your cell phone service provider can(Call from other no. n ask tell them for puk of ur no.) give you the PUK code aft3r answering simple security question.
Later enter PUK than enter new PIN, confirm new pin. Go to -Setting
-Security
-SIM lock
-off
Disable SIM n Later Phone Lock
PS:(You have to block your PIN to get access to PUK,
Default PIN- 0000, 12345)

Can i get a security package that will allow me to enter a pin number when i want to access my phone


Most Samsung phones come with a built in security system to set a 4-digit password to lock the phone. Try going to your Settings menu, then Phone Settings, then Security. From there you should be able to add a password and also set it to lock at different times, such as when you shut the screen off, when you power up the phone etc. This is for Samsungs in general, if your model doesn't have this option please clarify which model you own.

Forgot my four digit unlock code


Your phone's 4-digit unlock code is originally set to the last 4 digits of your phone number, and the 6-digit security code is originally set to 000000. Your service provider may reset these codes before you receive your phone. If your service provider has not reset these codes, we recommend that you change them to prevent others from accessing your personal information. The unlock code must contain 4 digits, and the security code must contain 6 digits.

If you forget your unlock code, try entering 1234 or the last 4 digits of your phone number. If that does not work, press the menu key, in most of the phones this will bypass the unlock code screen, and the phone will now be asking for the security code. If you forget the security code, send your unit in for repair to a level three LSC. There could be a charge for this as it is not covered under warranty.

To change a code or password:

  • Press the Menu key
  • Use the Navigation Key to scroll to Settings, and select this option
  • Scroll to Security and select this option
  • Scroll to New Passwords and select this option
  • Select the type of code you wish to change
  • Enter the old code when prompted, then enter the new code
  • If you forget your SIM lock, or call barring password, please contact your service provider.

Select Menu > Settings > Security and from the following options:
  • PIN code request or UPIN code request-to set the phone to ask for your PIN or UPIN code every time the phone is switched on. Some SIM cards do not allow the code request to be turned off.
  • Security level > Phone-to set the phone to ask for the security code whenever a new SIM card is inserted into the phone. If you select Memory, the phone asks for the security code when the SIM card memory is selected, and you want to change the memory in use.

enter your six-digit security code instead.
If you forget other codes: If you forget your security
code, SIM PIN code, PIN2 code, or call barring
password, contact your service provider.

Describe your AT&T BlackBerry Curve


BlackBerry smartphones support individual security passwords between four and 14 characters in length. The use of the password is designed to make sure that only the BlackBerry smartphone user can access the information stored on the BlackBerry smartphone.

For example, if the Backlight Timeout feature is set to dim after two minutes and the Security Timeout feature is set for 20 minutes, the BlackBerry smartphone will not automatically lock until 22 minutes has elapsed.
