    I have had this phone for ages and was playing around with it when I managed to lock it. The thing was I had changed the original code of 12345 to 00000 and now it just says error code even though I am 90% sure I am typing the right code in.

    I then had to get a PUK code which un locked it but even then the PIN code will not unlock.

    So I had a look at the nokia website and was directed to go to a local care point, I went into Carphone warehouse, 3 store, orange mobile, phones 4 u and all of them just directed me to other places. I then got the phone unlocked for 5 pounds from a reputable phone stall but its still not working, anyone have any clue as to what I can do?

    The phone is the only one I have as I can't afford new shiny ones and I need it urgently for job interviews.

    Without even thinking of the cause of your problem - just pop into a store and pick up a £10 pound phone, its hardly going to break the bank.

    Just do a master reset through settings.

    Default code is 1234
