How To Reset Nokia Security Code


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


Forgot your Nokia handset security code? Or you don't even have any idea what is your security code of second hand handphone because the previous owner has changed the code. For Nokia BB5 phone, you can regain the security code back by following this guide. Or, you can just reset your Nokia security code to default code, 12345. The guide below will shows you how to reset the security code.

Tools you will need:

Reset 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. Under Power Mode, click Local and then click Change button. At this part, your phone should restart, and you should see the text Local mode across your phone screen.
  9. Under Production Data Edit, click Read button. The textboxes should now contain values.
  10. Check the Enable check box beside Product Code.
  11. Click Write button.
  12. Select Tools button on top
  13. Click Factory Settings tab
  14. Tick Full Factory button and click Reset button.
  15. Final step, go back to Phone Info and click Normal then Change. Now your security code is 12345.
Note: If this guide doesn't work accordingly, you have to do some experimentation with the steps order. Check out how @Arvid had successfully reset the security code of his Nokia N82.

  1. I tried to reset the lock code on my Nokia N82.

    I got to step 7. When attempting to scan I got an error. I tried a few things, then spotted that on starting NSS it said that the "products" directory was missing. So I just added a folder called "products" in the main NSS directory. I tried again.
    This time it found the phone and was able to complete step 8. The phone was now in Local mode.

    However, as soon as I attempted step 9 - I got another error.
    So this time I reversed the process a bit. I got to step 7 again all well and good. This time though I skipped step 8 and did not go directly to Local mode.

    Instead I first did step 9. Clicked the "read" button under Prod. Data Edit. Bingo. The values popped up. I completed steps 10, 11, 12,13 and then got an error on 14.

    I removed the battery to restart -  planning to switch to local mode before moving to step 10 this time.

    However, upon restarting, the phone displayed the default date/time and so I checked the factory default button, and indeed, the lock code had been reset to 12345.

    Thanks so much for the original post and the link to the NSS software.

    If anyone else has problems I recommend some experimentation with the order - it worked for me!

  2. Thank you for the information. This will be very helpful to everyone. The written post was based on experimenting the Nokia 6280. So I guess the steps order may slightly different by different Nokia models. Anyway, I'm glad it works for you.

  14. This second step saved my life...Thank you for the developer who had produced this life saving product.

    I have been trying for a week to reset my security lock code but couldn't find anything. Then i updated the firmware on my Nokia E63 which would keep asking me to put lock code in when i would turn on my phone.

    Then i came across this blog and tried out NSS but the first method did not work for my Nokia E63 so i tried then second method and it worked wonders.

    Thank you very very much :D i am really happy that my phone is working again.

    ReplyDelete
  35. And Nokia wanted to charge me $50 for the honour of resetting the code when it was a firmware update from them that changed it!.. Thanks to all, it worked a charm on my N86 with the help of Arvid's finding.

    One thing that had me going around in circles for a while when NSS wouldn't connect is that you need to ensure you have all other Nokia software closed (eg: Ovi Suite, Software Updater, Nokia Link) or NSS won't connect even if the Virtual USB device loads normally.

    ReplyDelete
  36. That's a lot Nokia wanted to charge for such a simple process. Thank you very much for providing valuable advice. It certainly helps others.

    ReplyDelete
  37. It seem not working. Please follow the reset security code steps. It works on @Nay  's Nokia E63.

    Did you try hard reset by holding capslock, space, backspace and power buttons? @blurrymcgee claims it will reset the security code to [a href="http://keyable.blogspot.com/2012/02/how-to-reset-nokia-security-code.html#comment-448384788"]12345[/a].

  52. I am a little confused :S does th phone have to be on when u press these buttons or off :S I have an n97 but i dnt remember the lock code....s the ock code and the security code the same thing?

    ReplyDelete
  53. Hi @P12345, the lock code and security code are not the same thing. Your phone has to be on when pressing the buttons. Those buttons combination is to hard reset the phone.

    ReplyDelete
  54. my phone doesnot allow me to choose nokia mode, instead it ask for security code in the begging, so nss doesn't detects my phone.. tell an idea pls

  68. pls hepl me

    ReplyDelete
  69. Which Nokia handset are you using? Make sure you have installed PC Suite/Ovi on computer. It will be helpful if you can provide what error message you get while scanning your phone.

    ReplyDelete
  70. If you get 'Scan for product....error' error message, you may use NSS pro which supports newer Nokia phone models.

    ReplyDelete
  71. Additionally, old version of pcsuite should be used to work nss correctly(
    Nokia_PC_Suite_6_84_10_3_eng_web.exe  )

    ReplyDelete

  76. It won't work for your phone if it is locked because NSS requires Nokia Suite connectivity driver in order to read it.

    ReplyDelete
