My phone has been locked with password option and i have forgotten it


Is it the SIM Card? or the android password? If it's the SIM let it run until it asks for PUK. If its android, it should ask Forgot Passcode and offer to retrieve

I have forgotten my phone lock password,how do i change it?


Generic response ... most telephones have as the default value ... the last 4 digits of your phone number. If you are looking for a PUK code ... please review this short article BEFORE something serious happens to your phone http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Puk_code

My advice to you is keep the last 4 digits of your number as your lock code.

Thanks for your interest in FixYa.com, please remember to evaluate this response.

Samsung tacco light GT-S5230 puk code phone on o2 network


Puk locks are usually common problems when the user has gone into the security settings of the phone and unknowlingly tried to change some of the network settings. This causes the phone to do a PUK lock. Its nothing too serious at first simply call your customer service from a third line just tell the situation and they will just verify you are the user on the account and they will tell you how to reset the code and give you a new one. But beware if this happens too many times the phone will perminatley lock up thinking someone is tryin to change all the seetings and will need to be flashed. Just call you customer service and everything should be fine.

I have forgotten my pin # for the phone lock on my gt-s5233s i had changed the pin. do u kno if there is a reset button on the phone??


If you foget the PIN, you can retain it from your service provider if you have not changed the default one. In case you have changed the default PIN then you can obtain a PUK code from the service provider to reset the PIN code.

Note: Only your service provider is capable of providing you a PUK code.
