I recently checked for a firmware update for my E63. I got excited when i found out that there was an availabla one, the 200.21.012 and I immediately started the update process. Everything went ok but when i switched On the phone after the Pin it asked me for the lock code after 3 or 4 seconds. I tried the default one , 12345 but it dhowed a code error message. I can't do excatly nothing but the weird thing is that buttons Calendar,Contacts and Mailbox work but i still can't do nothing else.The Home button does not work. It doesn't seem a normal behaviour.Could it be a bug? I read a lot of posts about this problem so this means I'm not the only one having this problem.We don't have Nokia Shops here in Albania and traveling to the nearest one would cost me three times the price of my E63. Please help me. I really need my E63 back as it is my do-everything tool. Maybe a new firmware with this bug fixed would be best.
Thank You in advance
dude same problem for me also in n79 ya i cant tolerate this ,, i just went to nokia i told about all those thing they taken my mobile and kept for 2 days.
After 2 days i went ask they said ur mobile was ready just check it with that so i just checked same problem continue when i power on . I cant change the lock code .... when i power on its asking for the lock code if i give the default code 12345 its saying same error message. i just tell the complaint to them they get back the phone and keep it for 20 min . After 20 minutes that person come and give the mobile to me but its not solved. i just shouted they simply telling just give the mobile we will get back to after 15 days .. i dont knw wat they r doing in the nokia care i was upset i bought that mobile on 2 mnths before....
simply worst service from nokia care....
i dont knw i think some issues are there in firmware updates...
pls kindly find out these and reply me
Same here, before firmware update i was able to lock/unlock my mobile remote;ly but now, i am not able to change my lock code and i am afraid that the phone gets locked if tried more and more.
who to complain when the Nokai is them sleves are not working correctly, it some thing like complain about the lazness of a teacher to another lazy fellow.
i would rather go for consumer court because i was aksed for firmware update for fixing the listed problems and i dont know just the firmware display after *#0000# is chnaged and none of functionalities...
Just Nokai sucks... i never suggest Nokia even for Mobile thieves... ;-)
The best is Sony erricson.
All these were observed when Software version was showing
And been to nearby nokia care and asked for update of software and now I got the software version
Here are Nokia E63 Software Problems I found in my new E63
1. -- Picture Editor:
You can Zoom, Rotate a Picture but E63 never allows to Save the edited Picture
Worst Software engineering for not giving option the save the edited image…!
2. -- No Calendar Sync with Address Book Events
Add a Birday/Annivesary event along to a contact, you will never see the event entered to Calendar/neither get a remainder / alarm on that occasion day.
Then why the Calendar given, this works awesome even with Rs.800/- local Mobiles.
Very Sad to say Nokia has very less knowledged engineers who are not even capable of giving a software which Rs 800 mobile are giving at present market with colorful icons.
3. -- Memory Card Insertion problem.
Shows message as Memory card Corrupted when ever the mobile is switched off/on and needs a restart of Mobile to recognize the Mem Card and if re-inserted it works how foolish is the OS design.
3 to 4 times a day and every time when you switch off and switch on you need to re-insert the memory card (which is supplied along with Mobile by Nokia)
4. -- Picture Viewer
Awesome, you cannot open pics folder wise, all pics in the Mobile are shown at a shot and no choice is given for the user to select from particular directory.
Open a Pic from folder, delete the that pic, you will be routed back to Home screen instead of folder, oops Nokia Development team needs re-engineering courses.
What a Testing Engineered Software, and after encryting memopry card, and after decrypting it back i am not able to see pics on pic viewers from my Memory Card.
but can access to the same pics directly going to Mem card folders.
Encrypt and decrypt are juts for name sake, not for functioning and serving the need.
5. -- Message Inbox
Wow, Interesting Area,
a. Just Say i received a message from Number 123456789, now go and save 123456789 as Balaji in Contact.
Now get back to your Inbox, Surprise,
Yes, you never see 123456789 updated with Contact Name Balaji in Inbox, it will stay as 123456789 only, even give a try of Switch off and Switch on 100 times, its same.
its new nokia software getting back to 1950s.
b. Now, one more:
You have already saved a friend number 12345 as Balaji in contacts.
you get a SMS from 12345, well the inbox now promptly shows message from Balaji, now go back to Contacts, and change the number 12345 to any number,
so now Contact Balaji's number is changed but you will never see this reflected in inbox.
it will be still shown as message from Balaji, though that number is not at all in your Mobile Contacts.
c. One more:
You delete the contact Balaji, still you see in Inbox SMS from Balaji.
if i keep on digging the non-sense behavior of Nokia E63 i dont know, instead i can write a pretty good software for Nokia Mobiles.
for problem #3 (memory card insertion problem), if your memory card only stores data (no application installed on it), try the following:
- backup memory content to computer
- reformat the memory card using phone menu
- restore memory content from computer
works for me.
Heyz, if u can go to ur menu
then goto tools>Setting>General>Factory Settings-
This will change your phone back to all the default settings
HOPE THIS HELPs
PLZ GIVE ME A KUDOS STAr

please help me.
Even i m facing d same problem...???
What to do i updated my fone to 500.???.??.??? level...bt stil it shows the same problem of Lock code i tried 12345 but it doesnt work...Please Help
The Solution is:
When it asks for the LOCK CODE ..
1. Press and hold the gray button (near the shift button) to access/enable the number mode.
2. Press 112 (emergency number) and then the green dial button/key.
"Any other different method to dial 112 will not work. In this way the phone is again in "normal" mode."
This is only a temp fix and it will ask for the lock code each time you power up ..
The best thing to do once your phone is operational using this trick is to then re-install the firmware update using the OVI suite instead of the nokia suite once done all will be fixed
"Remember To Backup First"
Have fun and thanks to nicnaknok
I had this issue last night with my daughters E63 and after reading all this I was still at a loss as the supposed default code if 12345 didn't work.
Anyway, don't ask me why, but I tried 00000 and it did work , so anyone who still has issues then maybe try 00000 for the lock code.
Hope this helps someone
