I'm sorry, but does anyone know how to fix a forgotten lock code. I can't get into my N96 and I wish to avoid flashing it because I do not wish the phone to stay at a strage place over night. Thank everyone! Oh, and for the *#

7370# Does the phone have to be on or off? Thanks.

Thanks for the info

When doing a soft-reset, what data will be lost from the phone?


@ jarvnia 6 years ago

The lock code will be 12345.

Also, the phone needs to be on since you'll be dialing the info in.

Hope this helps anybody else who's interested.
