    Stupid memory

    Mine not my computer's!

    I dug out my old Nokia 8210 this morning as a colleague wants it. The thing is, itís asking for a security code (not the PIN). Iíve tried any number of things I might have used but I canít remember the actual code. Does anyone know of any other way of restoring factory defaults?

    Thanks for your help,

    One forgetful MoFo!

    you could try disconnecting everything from the motherboard and then reconnecting everything....usually that resets the BIOS

    12345 is the default security code if you never changed it.

    most nokias yea, some of the newer ones (and few older) actually use 54321 lol. They did that because they failed to realize people would figure out the technician code is also 12345. So they changed the security code to 54321, figuring people would try to use 54321 as the tech code, and left the tech as 12345. Didnt help any because everyone thought hey, lemme try that old one! And got in
