default security codes cell phones


All cellphones that are manufactured always come with a factory set security code, this is for security purpose to protect the information and data stored in the phone by the user. These codes are constant for all models of phone with their respective manufacturers. Whenever you intend to make any changes in the security settings you are asked to input this very code as specified by the brand unless you have changed this code to as per your convenience. Security codes are used for different functions say for instance to unlock your keypad or while rebooting ie switching on you phone or to restore the phone to its original factory settings etc. It is sometimes also needed when you want to perform a soft-reset or reset your phone to its original factory settings.


If perchance you input the code as per specified by the particular brand of the manufacturer and a message displayed on the screen reads as ‘WRONG CODE’ or ‘CODE ERROR’ it is deduced that the code has been changed or tampered with maybe by your friend or could be by your child, otherwise the default code will never fail you.


We on our part would advise you to always change these factory set codes for your own security to protect all your data and information, but also remind you to remember this code and do not forget it. If it so happens and you type a wrong code then the phone gets locked and you may need professional help to get it unlocked and restarted again.


The default codes of the various brands having any OS like iOS, Windows, Android, Asha or Symbian have the same code as that of its manufacturer and are listed below and are constant for all their models.


These are factory set codes which will always work. We have listed more than one code for some so try any one of these and we assure you they will help you out.
