Sadly, being the idiot I am I've managed to make myself look like an idiot when trying to be cool... I suppose I'll tell the story.

So, I find out the code that lets you reset the security code on your Pantech/Hyundai tx130c and I try it a few times and it seems to work... I hand my phone to my friends and I'm all like "Change my code to anything and I bet you 5 bucks I can unlock it in under a minute" so he does... And MEMORY BLANK I forget the code, so I ask him and he said he didn't know and had just pressed random buttons.

So there we go, I'm an idiot who has a locked phone :D
If anyone has an idea of the unlock code just post it here from memory it was something like *XXXX*XXX# similar to the Nokia's...

Also, I'm looking to buy a new phone sometime in the near future and was wondering if anyone had recommendations on... I'm looking for a under 200$ on TradeMe phone with full QWERTY keyboard...

I think that’s the programming code your after (although your format is a little off). It is against forum rules to post these codes here, but if you go to your local Telecom Dealer, get them to re NAM (program) your phone. On some models, you need to NAM the phone to a different number and then back to the original to get the lock code to reset to the last 4 digits of your phone number.

Good luck.
