Forgot Nokia Security Code? Find Back Security Code Using NSS Pro


Nokia Security Code
UPDATE: Please read here for a simple way to recover your Nokia security code.

It was written by me about three years ago how to find back the forgotten Nokia security code with NSS. NSS is already discontinued. So those who have newer Nokia device will find NSS unable to support by getting a 'Scan for product....error' error statusbar massage.

Now there is a program called NSS pro which able to do the same job as the NSS for finding back or reset the security code. If you're interested to know how to reset security code using NSS pro, click here to find out more. Last but not least, the most welcoming feature is it supports newer Nokia devices. I won't rephrase the list of supported Nokia devices, so here it is at the time of writing (link):

Here's how to find back the forgotten security code:
  1. Download NSS Pro.
  2. Connect Nokia handset to Computer with data cable.
  3. Select PC Suite/Ovi Suite.
  4. Open NSS Pro, run as administrator.
  5. Click Permanent Memory tab.
  6. NSS Pro - Permanent Memory
  7. Click Read button and wait until NSS Pro is finished reading your Nokia device.
  8. When it is finished, under Phone Management tab the most bottom line will shows you the location where the PM file is saved. The PM file is named with your Nokia device's IMEI number (*#06#).
  9. NSS Pro - Read
  10. You may now close NSS Pro and unplug your Nokia device.
  11. Open your IMEI.pm file with Notepad.
  12. Press Ctrl+F and find [308], continue scroll down a bit till 5th record (5=).
  13. It should looks like this, example: 5=32303039300000000000.
  14. By ignoring the red numbers in this pattern 32303039300000000000, the security code for this example is 20090.

It was tested successfully with Nokia 6280 and N82. If you have any inquiry regarding this especially finding the 5th record from .pm file, feel free to drop me a comment below. I make no guarantee I am able to find  your security code because there are so many types of Nokia devices in the market.

  5. Hi, I apreciate your detailed description, also with regards to reseting the security code.
    Unfortunately it has not worked with Nokia E7-00. Belle is installed, NSS Pro v0.48 used and communication is fine as long as it remains in 'Normal Mode'. Switching to 'Test Mode' is possible (the phone shows it), but then the communication is lost. A full reset would not be possible.
    Reading out the permanent memory is possible. But there is no Key 5 unter [308]. Only a Key 1 is populated with 8192 Bytes of data.
    Any idea on how to solve this issue?
    Thanks,
    Christian

  6. Amendment: reading the permanent memory is possible in normal mode...

  8. Hi Lemon,



    Thank you for your reply!



    That is exactly what I tried. Reseting the security code using NSS Pro...



    Without success unfortunately.



    Any idea?



    Kind regards,



    Christian

  9. I have no idea how for new Nokia phones unfortunately. That's frustrating because NSS pro should support the feature of reset new Nokia phones.

  10. 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
  11. Cant find the 5= record on my N97 mini

  12. Can you try this to reset the code?

    ReplyDelete
  13. In the version 0.49 there are no Permanent memory, Basic actions or Self tests tabs. I saw that the version in the picture is 0.46, i downloaded it but it is the same. What should i do?

    ReplyDelete
  14. It won't work for locked phone as NSS pro requires the connection which is prevented by the phone itself.

    ReplyDelete
  15. hi!i own a nokia e7-00, i can find the '5= 303...' but i cant figure out the code... i had also tried the alternative reset security, neither one is working

    ReplyDelete
  16. My phone is locked asking for security code, how can I do this?

    ReplyDelete
  17. This is for those who forgot their security code and phone is not locked. I don't know how to do with locked phone. Flashing it probably helps.

  128. This method could not work. Try <a href="http://www.keyables.com/2012/05/reset-nokia-security-code-with-nss-pro.html>reset</a> the security code but it will erase all your phone's data.

  130. Knowing the IMEI number only works for very old phone models.

    Since it is locked. You can flash your phone to default with Phoenix.
