Find Back Your Nokia Phone Security Code


Nokia Security Code
UPDATE: For newer Nokia phones, please use NSS pro to find back the forgotten security code. Click here to read more how to find back security code with NSS pro.

Many Nokia phone users forgot their phone security code and might charge fee for service in order to regain back the code from phone store. Now here's a guide of how you can find back your Nokia phone security code by yourself. I've written this guide very long time ago on other website which is no longer updating anymore. So this guide will work on most older Nokia phones, especially BB5 type phone. Hope this guide helps and save you a few bucks. Now, let's start on how to regain back your forgotten security code.

Tools Required:

Regain Your Security Code Steps:
  1. Install Nokia PC Suite
  2. Install Nemesis Service Suite (NSS)
  3. Connect your phone to your PC with data cable. If the phone ask for connection mode, choose default mode or PC Suite mode (But don't open Nokia PC Suite).
  4. Open Nemesis Service Suite (NSS)
  5. Click scan for new devices button (on top right corner of NSS)
  6. Click Phone Info button
  7. Click Scan button
  8. Click Permanent Memory tab
  9. Click Read button
  10. It will read the permanent memory file and save it on the hard disk at following path. C:\Program Files\NSS\Backup\pm\.pm
  11. Open the .pm file using Notepad
  12. Now scroll down until field [308] and on the 5th Record (5=), your security code is saved at there.
  13. For example, 5=31323334350000000000
  14. Just ignore the red colour font. So, 12345 is your security code.
If this guide doesn't work with your Nokia phone, follow this guide of how to reset security code to default. The Nokia default security code is 12345.

    ReplyDelete
  9. The code you provided is under [309] which is not we are looking for.

    It must be in the part of [308].

    ReplyDelete
  10. But there is no No 5= under [308]

    ReplyDelete
  11. Which Nokia phone you are using? I'm afraid this method don't work on your phone.

    You can try reset the security code to default following the steps in this post: http://keyable.blogspot.com/2012/02/how-to-reset-nokia-security-code.html Hopefully it works since many comments claimed it works on their Nokia devices.

  24. What about a phone that's already locked? I tried your method on an already locked Nokia 5610 (of which I forgot its security code), the phone won't connect in locked mode so the PC Suite can't find it.


    Is there a work around for this?

    ReplyDelete
  25. what if keypad is locked with code and i m unable to select pc suite mode

    ReplyDelete
  26. Thanks! Great Product!

    ReplyDelete
  27. It will not work because NSS requires connection mode.

    ReplyDelete
  28. what if keypad is locked with code and i m unable to select pc suite mode?

    ReplyDelete
  29. Any other method or software then? :(

    ReplyDelete
  30. Search for how to flash the Nokia phone, that should solve the problem but I've no idea how to flash. Good luck on your findings.

    ReplyDelete
  31. It says 'error' when I click 'scan' or 'read'. What should I do??

    ReplyDelete
  32. What is your phone model? Try use NSS pro to reset the security code.

    ReplyDelete
  33. Unfortunately no, the NSS software needs PC Suite connectivity in order to work.

    ReplyDelete
  34. It won't work for locked device as it requires the connection.

    ReplyDelete
  35. i have a nokia E7-00, and cant find '5=' under [308] ? any suggestions, i tried the alternative option which you have mentioned. neither one is working, frustrated

    ReplyDelete
  36. It dont work to remove Restriction Code (i.e. NT LOCK) on nokia classic 2700. Any ideas please? mail to crapicrap at yahoo.

    ReplyDelete
  37. There is a way to get the code with locked phone:


    first you have to find a resistor with between 7 and 10 kΩ (7'000 - 10'000 Ohm) (buy it in the internet or search in an old radio, printer, ...)

    after this you have to take a look at your mobile phones battery.

    you'll find a negative pole (-) and the BSI ( ).


    after finding them you have to put one wire of the resistor at the negative pole and the other at the BSI.

    then put the battery into the phone again and connect it via usb to your pc again.


    then go on with point 4. of Lemon's tutorial.
    In the end remove the resistor and be happy. :)

    (i had to do this today too and it worked fine for me.) .


    PS: the resistor is important to connect the phone to the pc, because it
    will set it in the so called testmode or localmode (depends on
    resistance). without this modes it won't connect, it's a precaution of
    nokia.




    Hope I could help you.

    maybe you can add this 'tutorial-part' to your tutorial for people that
    have totally locked their phone and don't want to pay nokia much money
    for something that they can do by themself.

    ReplyDelete
  38. Thank you for this interesting information. What was the phone you trying to put it on localmode? Does it works for all Nokia devices?


    I'll give a thumbs up for your comment so that it stays on top the rest which should be visible to the readers. All credits to you.

  39. Reset security code with NSS pro is the final solution I have.

    ReplyDelete
  40. Based on the feedback I got, it seems NSS software don't play well with the E series which is disappointing.

    ReplyDelete
  41. It should work with all BB5-phones, maybe also for all other nokia phones. I had to do this with my nokia x3-02.
    btw: there is a way to unlock older, non bb5 nokia phones. in the internet are some websites with mastercode generators, they can convert the imei of your phone to a securitycode that allways work for your phone. you can find the imei-code somewhere under the battery (15 letters/numbers).

  47. If you can't find the 5th record (5=) in .pm file, try the other method HERE to reset your security code. Good luck.

  48. hi. i forgot to tell you that my phone is nokia 5800 xpressmusic. Will the new website you gave me will work on my phone? even if its not android os? thank you so much. :)

    ReplyDelete
  49. Hi gurl, I can't confirm it because I didn't test with Nokia 5800 XpressMusic. I recommend you try this method because a reader claimed it works on his Nokia 5800 XM.

  59. Thanks a lot, it worked on my N82, i was able to unlock it using nss pro,, my N82 was not being detected after i did a hard reset, by pressing *3 and green button,, then the phone was detected, in nss pro, afterwards was able to read the unlock code and i am using a win 7 64bit, the file was saved in C:\Users\s\AppData\Local\Temp\Rar$EX00.248\BackUp\358082013907668\358082013907668.pm one good thing is that, it displays the path where the file is saved in the pc, which is very good, also i still wonder why, it was not being detected earlier in nss, and nss pro, but after doing the format it was being read by nss pro !!!

    ReplyDelete
  60. Fantastic finding! Got a number of readers also could not detect the phone in nss & nss pro at first. Some need to restart computer, repluging USB cable, and formatting the phone. Only then nss can detect the phone.

    ReplyDelete
  70. If the phone is locked, it wont connect to the computer so pretty much nothing will work as far as software goes. From what i fount online so far, you need some service box that costs some money...i believe it connects somehow to the back of the phone (n97 mini, where it has some sets of connectors)
