Question about Nokia 7373 Cellular Phone

5 Answers

Security code I got my 7373 brand new but when i tried to put in the default security code it said code error. I havent changed the code myself, and was wondering is there anything i can do to find out the code or reset it. I called the orange helpline and they said to call the nokia careline, which i havent done yet. I've also tried the code *#2640# but that doesnt work, and i've also tried to reset the factory setting but to do that i need the security code!!! Please help! Thank you.

    I tried all three things but it still says code error, and i also called the nokia careline but i was told to take to a care centre which i really want to avoid as it would mean making an hour long journey and i really don't have the time!

    Thanks for your help anyway, i really appreciate it!

  • Pimpette_07 Nov 07, 2007

    I tried 12345 but it didnt work, it said code error, again! Thanks anyway.

  • Pimpette_07 Nov 08, 2007

    My phone isnt asking for the security code, i want to put the code on to prevent others from accessing my phone, but when i try to put it on and enter 12345 it says code error.

    It isnt a big deal as i can cope without but i have my suspicions on my sister changing it.

  • Pimpette_07 Nov 09, 2007

    Well thanks for trying, i'll try to get it out of her. Thanks for the help.

    If 12345 did not work as your security code then something is not wright.

    when your phone is requesting this code what exactly is it asking for because there are 4 differrent codes it can be requesting

  • Anonymous Nov 08, 2007

    Unfortunately unless your sister can tell you what she changed it to you will have to take it to a service centre an have it restored to the default setting of 12345

    sorry I couldn't help more

What do you mean you switch off your phone and then try all the codes?
When you turn your phone off and put it back on again you put in the PIN code, which should be in your user guide.

If the phone is brand new then the code is usually 1234 or 0000 or it could be the last four numbers of your phone no but if you get it wrong more than 4 or 5 times the phone will be locked and you will need the puk code if you do lock it ring up your service provider and they will give you the 11 digit puk code after you put this in it will reset your security code to either 1234 or 0000 hope this is some help.......................................

Hi! My nokia 5130c-2 ask for security when i switch it on

This is because the settings have been set to requesat for security. If you bought the phone brand new and havent changed the security code then it is 12345 otherwise it is whatever you have changed it to. Also most phones are set such that when a new sim card is put in them they request an unlock code.
Hope this solution has been helpful?
