I forgot my E51 phone lock password.

I forgot my E51 phone lock password.

I activated E51's phone lock. I knew my password for a while. I switched off my mobile. When I switched it on, It asked for the phone lock, however when I put in the phone lock, it says wrong code.

How can I reset my phone lock? I cannot go beyond the Insert Lock Code???

Please help.

Take your phone to a nokia care point along with proof of purchase/ownership and they will reset the code to it's default (12345).

 

This may also cause all of your data to be erased.

Or you might try hard-resetting your phone. Same as taking it to a care point except you can count on the fact that it WILL erase all of your data and you don´t have to wait for it. Regards, Hendikoischnur

Hard resetting doesn't wipe the security code on all models.  Can you confirm if the E51 is one of the model that does get it's code reset during a hard reset?

 

Also when mentioning the hard reset it's wise to actually show the procedure (or link to it) so that new users know what you are talking about.

 

Hard reset (all user data and user added programs will be wiped):

1. Switch off the phone.

2. Hold down the following three buttons: Green (the call answer button), * button, and '3' button.

3. While holding these buttons, hold the power button for a second to switch on the phone.

4. Release when the phone shows the nokia hands logo or shows other signs of life like the language selection screen.

It may take a few attempts and very flexible fingers.

Hi,

no. I never actually owned an E51. On my E61, a hard reset wiped the security code as well as everything else. Apparently, on the E71 the hard reset code is a different one, so I'm not sure about the code for E51.

If the default code which is 12345 will not work, it's best to follow the advice given by Psychomania. Refer to message 3 of this thread.

Sometimes the owner just doesn't have the purchase proof but with his/her genuine Nokia device in hand, the Nokia Point won't help in any way?
