Re: How to reset forgotten password for my Nokia 6680

What password are you referring to...

 

If its the security code then you may try doing the 4 finger reset.

 

switch off the phone, press and hold on the 3, *, call and power on.

 

let go all when you see the nokia logo.

 

This will reset every thing on your phone and you will also loose all data, so you wanna do a back up first.

Re: How to reset forgotten password for my Nokia 6680

Maybe I'm wrong, but hard reset (three fingers reset) is working only on S60 based phones.

 

If I'm right, the only way is to go to the nearest NCP with purchase invoice.

The 6680 is a (very old) S60 phone and the reset sequence mentioned above does work on it.

 

It may or may not reset the security code.

(and why when I press the enter key on my keyboard, the curser jumps up here instead of below my paragraph below...?) 

 

I'm trying to set up my auto lock of keys by going to menu > tools > settings > security > phone and sim > autolock period...here I've entered the minutes I want autolock to activate and I was asked for the password. This password I can't remember.

Re: How to reset forgotten password for my Nokia 6680

Yes thats the security code on the phone, it is 12345 by default.

 if you have changed it and cant remember then try the steps i provided above

or this

switch off the phone, press and hold on the 3, *, call and power on.

let go all when you see the nokia logo.

You will loose all the details on your phone as well so DO NOT forget to do a back up.

OK, i've tried the steps above several times and either i keep doing it wrong (I doubt it) or it is not working... I see the Nokia log start up and I let go of all buttons and when my phone turns ON completely, all my stuff is still there. I would know that I did it correctly if my phone resets back to manufacturer's settings correct? If so, then it is not working for me.

Re: How to reset forgotten password for my Nokia 6680

I have done it on my 6680 before.

 

off the phone

press on the

- 3

- *

- call(green)

- and power on

 

after about 8-10 secs let go all 4 keys.

 

-If you still fail to do it, then you may try connecting it to a PC and do a software update.

Re: How to reset forgotten password for my Nokia 6680

You can't reset the Security code.Only Nokia Care can do that if you go along with a proof of ownership (Bill Invoice). But, Its not clear whether you want to reset the Code or your Phone.. If its the phone then only the Hard Reset may be possible.
