My son has put a password on his phone and cannot remember it. Does anyone know if these permanently lock after so many attempts and if they do how do we go about getting it working again. Any help would be greatly appreciated.
My brother had a similar thing done to his Nokia (CDMA) phone by his 'friends', who also burned through $40 or so of games too.
From what I was told by the Telecom helpdesk - you have the unlock code which you have 7 tries... then you have a security code which I was politely told that it was borg'ed (they couldn't do anything without me bringing it in) and that I had to take it in a service agent.
I'm not sure if that information is valid so I'd try calling them (from a different phone of course to either *123 or 0800323232 )
Thanks for responses. I guess we are off to the telecom shop to figure out if this phone can be resurrected. Beats me why he put a password on which he cannot remember but its probably going to be a very expensive lesson. Cheers
Yep. I just went into a Telecom store with my Hyundai TX115 and they told me that if they send it away for repair it would take up to 10 working days (they don't offer a loan phone during this period) and they admitted that it would be quicker if I took it directly to their service agent. They also pointed out the price difference for the inspection fee as you describe.
Whilst the handset is still under warranty, I strongly suspect that the fault has been caused by impact damage so I don't think it's even worth getting it fixed. The staff member that I spoke to said that the Sanyo 8200 should be out in the next couple of weeks (unfortunately, they don't know the exact release date until the stock turns up on their doorstep).
Anyone want to make any guesses on pricing for the 8200?
