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???
read this it might give you an idea of what to do and what is possible
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.

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.
