    SIM or phone lock code? If it's the phone lock code... Power off phone. Press and hold Green, * and 3 and keep them held whilst powering on and for a few seconds after, if kept pressed this formats without asking for Security Code confirmation.

    NOTE! This erases all your own data on the phone!

    The phone should then accept the default lock code of 12345 when re-flashed.

    Also, i think if you try it so many times, the sim card locks up aswel, and you will be required to enter a PUK Code.

    if this is the case, phone your service provider, they will ask a few details and should give you your PUK code, then this will let you back into it.

    dear sp00k

    i have tried holding down the green (the one u answer call with right?), the * and the number 3 button (this is while the phone is switched off right?) and THEN i switch on the fone while holding all 3 buttons down (tricky) but it still takes me to the lock code screen, should i keep holding it at the lock code screen? and but a few seconds how long exactly

    sorry if these questions are annoying, but i cannot use my phone at all and any help is very much appreciated

    Yagger... Correct... Keep the buttons held down until the Nokia 'hands' logo appears on-screen.

    Your questions aren't annoying...

    N.B. This will only hard-reset the phone, it won't reset the lock code until you flash the firmware.

    Is the phone asking for a PUK code? If so, read what Andy has to say above...

    I can only quote the following, taken from the forum 'TIPS' section.

    "FORMATTING CODES
    *#7370# .......... Format phone...[Hard-Reset]
    *#7780# .......... Factory Reset
    Note:
    Format phone restores phone to as if it was out of the box. Retains firmware version and operator Variant changes but wipes all applications you have installed. Does not format the memory card so any apps on there may reinstall once powered back up again.

    Factory Reset resets all settings to defaults but keeps any applications you have installed and photos etc. Both need the Security code, which, by default, is 12345.

    Ways to format symbian phones without needing a security key:

    1. To reset the mobiles other than N97 and 5800, keep pressed the following three keys on your mobile keypad and restart your phone whilst still pressing these keys. * + 3 + Call button (green button).

    2. For Nokia 5800 XM: In this case, press the keys at once Red (End) + Green (call) + Photocamera Button and hold and switch on the mobile.

    3. For Nokia N97: Press Left Shift key + Space Bar + BackShift and hold, then turn on the phone.

    Illustrated details can be found HERE... thanks to AllAboutSymbian."

    That method generally does not work, which is why I did not recommend it. It also requires a full backup of all phone data, since it will be lost in the process of formatting/hard reset. Maybe next time you might include this warning before you recommend a phone format.
