Restriction Code

My phone asks for a restriction code and when I enter the code 12345, it gives me the nessage code error. How do I reset this code? My service provide is unable to help me resetting the code.

Thanks,

Re: Restriction Code

DO NOT ENTER ANY MORE CODES! Your phone might get permanently locked. 12345 is the default SECURITY code, which is a whole another thing. Restriction code is needed when you want to open SIM lock. Your phone is locked to a certain operator's SIM cards/a certain SIM card and will not accept another SIM without the correct restriction code. Only your operator will give the restriction code/open the lock once your contract is up.

Re: Restriction Code

If you look at other posts in this forum you'll see the only people who are able to provide a restriction code for you would be your Network service provider, it's not something that Nokia have put on the phones. It's probably best to get in contact with them.

Re: Restriction Code

some times phones seem to randomly ask for this code, take the battery out for 15 mins and pop it back see if it goes away.

what is your mobile model? restriction code is different from the default code.  restriction code is used when your phone is locked to a network and when you try to insert a foreign sim "resrtiction code" will be displayed. you need the code from your service provider.
