    HELP! forgot security code

    I forgot the security code (unlock code) that is required to put in when i turn my phone on, i have tried everything i can think of, and nothing works.

    Is there some sort of master reset code or something that i can reset the code with?

    Thank you,
    Erik

    Master Reset

    That would kind of defeat the purpose of a security code. :wink:

    You can Master Reset the device, but you'll lose any software and data on it. If you have a backup, you can restore that, but that might restore the password, too.

    yeah, true.

    if i master reset the device, would it be just like when i got it from the store or would it need to have windows mobile loaded on it again?

    And to master reset, hold the center action button down while turning the phone on.

    Try it again. It takes practice sometimes.
