My ovi account is locked... Please unlock it !!!

[ Edited ]

Hello,

 

When I try to log in nokia ovi e-mail, I always get this error :

"Your account is locked."

 

It's not a matter of time as written in this webpage :

http://support.ovi.com/osc/en_GB/service/get_a_nokia_account/faq/FA135206_en_US?no_session=true

I always get the error even if I don't try to log in during several days !

 

And also I know I use the good name & password because if I use a wrong password I don't have the "Your account is locked" error but another one (which is "Either the email address / username ... ... or password was not recognized.")

 

My ovi e-mail adress is occilo@ovi.com

Thanks.

Thank you for the idea of reaching Nokia Care (customer support) but I don't understand why I have to do this...

 

My e-mail adress worked well before and i haven't notice any problem.

You should do that in order to get Nokia's customer support personnel to help you. This is a user-to-user support discussion forum, and if fixing this requires that Nokia does something on their side, they will only learn of your problem if you contact Nokia Care directly.

Thank you for answering me, petrib. But, even if I understand that I have to contact Nokia Care directly, I wonder why they locked my account without any prior given notice nor any explanations.

I seriously think that I have better to move to another e-mail provider like g-mail which seems to be more reliable. I don't like spending time with hotline and stuff like this for unknow reasons.

 

And yes, since my last post here, I contacted Nokia Care via e-mail (web form, in fact) and then didn't answer me as of today.


Best regards,

Occilo

Someone else might have attempted to log in to your account too many times, or you yourself (if, e.g., you've mistakenly tried to use the wrong password, or remember the username incorrectly for some reason or by accident).

 

If Nokia Care does not respond to email fast enough, use the phone number and call them to speak to a live Nokia support person directly.

Hi Occilo18,

 

Firstly let me welcome you to the Nokia discussion forums.


I have just checked with the Nokia French team and you email has been received and a response was sent out on the 13th January., have you received this response?

Here is a copy of the response which was sent out on the same day you sent your email.

"Dear Mr. Occilo,

Thank you for contacting Nokia Customer Services.

In regards to your Nokia account, I understand that there had been some problems with logging in due to our server being down.

But as you pointed out that this has been for several days, let me contact the specialised team in order to find out what is wrong.

Can you please provide the following information in your next email? :

Your email or username
The exact error message that you are getting when you try to log in

Can you also try to change your password and then try to log in again?

Looking forward to your response,

Kind regards,

Manaliny

Nokia Customer Care

0 811 004 567"

If you can please reply to this sent by the customer care team with the additional details which are required our French team will escalate this for you to get in order to get issue resolved.

Kind Regards

Re: My ovi account is locked... Please unlock it !!!

It seems that if you are logged into Yahoo mail (on any computer/phone) you will not be able to log into Nokia. They share some kind of infrastructure so you are locked out. Its a pain and took me months to find out that was the problem. It worked for me,. may not apply to you, but if it does... log out of Yahoo before logging into Nokia.

Hi,

 

Thank you all for your feedback.

 

These forums are a user to user support platform and as you probably understand your cases need to be handled by Nokia Care directly. You can contact Nokia Care through phone,mail or chat (where available) through this link.

 

Hope this helps,

Kosh

Hi molepo6,

Welcome to the Nokia Support Discussions!

 


If you try to sign in with a wrong password ten times in a row, your account will be locked for 15 minutes. Try to sign in again after 15 minutes. If you still enter a wrong password, the account will be locked again for 15 minutes.

If you are not sure about your password, you can recover it.
On Nokia Account page http://account.nokia.com, select “Forgot your password?” (or “Need help?”), and follow the instructions.
