- I took a backup of it before I started.
- I tried using the 7370 reset code. It asks me for my security code. I set it 2 years ago and for the life of me, I can't remember it. Cancel that after trying to guess it.
- Use the 'push *, 3 & one other button' method while powering on. It clears itself, however, the security & pin codes still remain.
- Every time I turned it on, it asks for my pin code. I enter a random number (same deal as with security code, it's a 2 year old pin I've never used), it says 'incorrect pin', but it lets me use the phone anyway.
So I give up for the time being and restore from the backup. No worries. However, I want to figure out my pin (& security code if possible) and I only have one shot left according to the phone.
Does anyone have any bright ideas other than to hit it with a hammer & buy myself a new one for my birthday in a couple of days? The Nokia service centre is only open till 5:30 Mon-Fri so I don't really have an option to go there except during my work hours and they will probably just laugh at me and tell me to stop using an ancient phone.
Ideally I would just like to wipe the whole phone, including all settings/pins etc and start like I just got it out of the box if possible.
If the above is not possible, suggestions on how to send my phone to a fitting death are welcome.
PS I still have the PUK1 that came with my SIM if that's any help.
