Nokia Nseries :: N9 Asks For Security Code After Enabling Developer?
Oct 15, 2011
I got my N9 yesterday and couldn't quite find info on how to install the Opera web browser, so i decided to enable "developer mode" in settings. That didn't help, so i decided to reboot the phone. When starting it up again, it now asks me for a security code. A code which i don't recall setting, and can't find any info on the internet about.
Note: I have previously set my PIN-code to 0000 and then disabled the pin code check, so it's NOT the pin code that's the problem. Also tried to insert my PUK-code, but that didn't help either.
I've security code set on my 603, but somehow my 7 year son could get through (and he doesn't know the passcode). I had put it on charging on power plug. He somehow managed to get in. When my wife notice him fiddling up with the phone, it showed up message asking whether to initiate an emergency call. She took it away from my son, only to notice that it was reset to factory settings
Not sure how it would have happened. How in the heavens could he get past security code. I've my corporate email account set and it doesn't allow to turn security code off for that reason.
I could recover from 7 day old backup. Some sms are lost and all app need to be reinstalled now. Many standard app that came in bundled didn't come back after recovering from backup.
Recently I took the nokia N8 phone from my brother. But unfortunately he changed the security code from 12345 and forgot it. Is there anyway I can recover it without approaching a nokia service center.
3 days ago, everything from my internal memory (videos and pictures) disappeared!After 4 hours of work and almost nerve breakdown i managed to save 90% percent of material by manual transfer to PC.nsequences:- 1,5GB of memory not avaible- Phone is not working properly (everything is kinda slow) tried 8 second reset but it didn't solve anything.y next step is to try factory reset but none of usual security codes (12345, 0000 or 00000) doesn't work!Cellular phone is 18 months old and i still have 6 months warranty ( i can prove it because i have a bill for it)
Since the update, whenever I turn my phone on after either turning it off myself or because the now poor battery has made it turn off, my phone asks for a security code. It didn't do this before, so I don't know what I am supposed to put in. I put in 1234, it tells me it's wrong, I press cancel and hey presto I can use my phone! What's that all about?
I have a Nokia 6120 Classic phone and I decided to do a hard reset. The problem is all the tutorials on the net warn me that at some point during the procedure I will be asked about a security code.What if I don't know that code? Is there any way to check if the code is the default one (12345) without bricking my device and paying a visit to a Nokia support center?
I changed mine security code, then after a while to check if I remember it correct I went again to the place where it can be changed but pressed cancel so not to change it again, now the phone does not approve my security code at all, neither the old one, any clue what happened?
I have forgotten the security code of my nokia x3-02. I tried unlocking it with master code but i found out that the master code solution works only for DCT-3 and DCT-4 phones. I really want to know if there is any hope for unlocking it because i really like this phone
I purchased this phone before 3 months.Never used or changed security code.One week ago I updated the sotware using nokia suite..But afterthat when restarting the phone , it asks security code..i typed the default seurity 12345..but it doesn't accepts. change or reset.Product Code-059B7V9 Model-C7-00 Type-675
Moderator's note: we have removed the IMEI number from your post because Nokia does not recommend users to post sensitive information.
I got my Nokia last june. I have a problem though. I cannot enable my phone code. I changed the initial code 12345 but it won't get enabled. I have another question. The security code (of the phone) is it the same with the code you have to press everytime I unlock my phone? That is the code I am looking for.
I Forgot my password(security code) of my Nokia N86 which i'd change and when i change my sim card,the handset prompts me to type the security code...
I've tried all my known passwords,but of no use..
I reviewed many websites and found that bb5 models cannot be unlocked and the only solution for that is to get the handset flashed,i just want to know from Nokia Discussion board,is the flashing only solution available? or any other alternative?
I have a nokia 6086, bought at Orange France. I have changed the security code after buying, using probably one of my usual code (I have a few ones). but I did not write it, because it was an evident usual one. a few month ago I flash a new version of the firmware with PC Suite update tool. I've restored the data with PC Suite backup tool. no problem.
(I now suspect the security code to be reset to 12345)
I've also asked my operator (orange.fr) the code to unlock the Phone and accept foreign SIM. it worked. No relation normaly. 3 weeks ago I've acquired an indonesian XL SIM, and suddenly I could only access the SIM content, not my phone names list. I try to confgure it to access the phone names and it refuses my usual code. I make a few test, then many combination. then manymany in case I've choosend a perverse code, or a default code like 00000 or 12345. It was emitting no unusual moaning, no lock. I've thus make many tests, and retries. that I've found on internet that the initial code is 12345 but it did not work.
I've read that after 5 fails I should wait 5 minutes. I've respected that constraint and make a few tests, but no better. I suspect the code to be reset to 12345 by the firmware update, but also that my phone is "locked" by my many attempts. officially after 5 minutes it should works but maybe there is a definitive long term lock in case of to many tries?
Is there a way to reset the timer/counter of failures, so I can test the security code? the most stupid is that I can still read my numbers with PC Suite, OVI, through bluetooth and the USB cable. I think about updating the firmware and restoring the current frmware, then restoring the data.
I configured my nokia e5 exchange mail and it prompt me change the security code (alias lock code) and ever since, the cellphone locks itself after 40 minutes and I have to be entering the code when this happens, also it requests for the code when I turn on the device. I tried to disable it and is not letting me, it shows the error "Unable to unlock phone".
