did yous no that if you reprogram the sanyo 5600 to another number it will rest the "lock code" back to the last 4 numbers
of the mobile phone number that you reprogramed it to?

Security is not so hard to get pastFrown

I mentioned this in a recent thread. You still have to know the programming code, which although not hard to get hold of, is not really all that common knowledge.

Phone pin codes are merely mechanisms to ensure basic low-level privacy: e.g. to stop your kids using your phone and racking up charges, stop your co-workers peeking at your texts etc.

No system is foolproof, but perhaps this is something that Sanyo could make a little more secure.

yes i agree wth wot you say it is not common for people to no the service programing codes but it is eazly found wot if someone has to do a number swip i mean why can't sanyo be more like nokia with the nokia mobiles you have to enter the "lockcode" before you are allowed to enter enter any service programing menu's it just displays an error message saying "unlock phone first"

Nokias also have a two step system... PIN code plus SECURITY code. I havent got a Sanyo here to check, but I believe they only have that 4 digit PIN system...?

Some Nokias are easier to change the security code on than others - some can be done via programming, but some require a trip to an agent (who possibly just use different codes designed for network level handset setup anyway).
