Re: c3-00 security code not been accepted

Guys after wasting 30 minutes of my life trying to figure out the code (trust me I tried it all 12345 0000 blah blah blah). Just do this. Remove your sim card, start the phone without the sim, enter the default code 12345 (which is accepted then!). Go to settings--- phone--- security phone lock, disable it! Put in your sim, restart the phone and Bob's your uncle! Try it... Cheers!

@sivasankar28

 

Welcome to Nokia discussion boards! 

 

Are you having a security code error or any other issue? For a soft reset please type *#7780# on the keypad, as stated in previous posts on this thread, the default lock code is 12345. 

If it's a hard reset that you wish to perform on your phone, please first back up your data using Nokia Suite (Tools > Back up). Once your data is fully backed up,  type *#7370# on the keypad. Note that this will erase all data on your device and original settings will be installed. 

 

Feel free to post any other questions you may have. 

 

Press the 'Accept Solution' icon if I have solved your problem, Kudos my post if my advice has helped you!

Re: c3-00 security code not been accepted

Sorry, but you need to visit Nokia Care along with a proof of ownership (Bill / Invoice) to get the code reset to default 12345

Re: c3-00 security code not been accepted

Try this also and it works on my C3-00 which I was not able to use for four (4)  days because it doesnt anymore acknowledge my security code.... Turned off the unit, remove the sim... turned it on again and let it rest for 10 minutes, after that I tried my security code, and guess what it works.....

 

Hope this helps.... God bless everyone... :thumbsup:
