Anyone help me out? Trying to transfer contacts off my Nokia 6230i and need to delete those on the SIM but don't know the security code to complete it. Cheers

Thanks for coming back so quickly. That doesn't work unfortunately but the phone was my wife's before hand and I wonder if she has changed it!

Did a bit of lateral thinking and found an old Nokia handset that would accept 12345 to delete the SIM contacts. Thanks.

Voda wil tell you the PUK code if you ask them. Just keep entering the wrong PIN until the phone locks, and then it will ask for the PUK code to unlock it and then enter a new PIN.

Dave, the PUK is the code to unblock a simcard where you've tried to enter the wrong unlock code more than 3 times. In this instance the sim card will be blocked and you contact the operator to unblock the sim. However the security code is part of the phones operating system and is a 5 digit number (rather than the 4 digit sim card number) which the phone requires before it allows you to do anything major to wither the phone or sim card.

Voda may be able to help with that aswell, but it's not the PUK code. There are also free utilities out there to generate a new security code for the phone if necessary. I think I have a program for the 6230i if needed. ;)

The security code used to always default to the same number, but IIRC that changed shortly before I left Nokia in 2003 to being a number that varied with the IMEI.

Changed my phone to a Blackberry Pearl 8110 - works brilliantly in my A8 and TT. Full address book, missed calls etc. Can't get my text messages to work on my A8 yet though even though the button is present on the MMI.

Get the free master reset code from an online vendors like SPAMMERS R US .With the master reset code you can reset your current security code and can assign a new one.To get the code you need to submit the IMEI number

You do realise that the previous post was nearly 5 YEARS ago - I doubt if Merlot still has the problem :D
