How to recover samsung forgotten password
  

Hi,

My problem is, I have set password on my samsung D600, it says that's wrong.... Is there a way to reset the phone to the factory password of 00000000. Also tried entering his puk but again nothing, just says wrong password. Can anyone suggest anything to get the phone unlock code / password please? How to recover samsung forgotten password ???

Re: How to recover samsung forgotten password

To recover samsung password if forgotten, attempt to perform a master reset and restore the device to original factory specifications. If you locked your SIM card and need a PUK code, this link may help:

Re: How to recover samsung forgotten password

Use this menu to protect the phone against unauthorized use by managing the several access codes of your phone and SIM card.

Note: If you enter an incorrect PIN/PIN 2 three times in succession, the SIM card is blocked. To unblock it you need to enter your PUK/PUK2 (Personal Unblocking Key). The codes are supplied by your network operator.

PIN check

The 4-to-8-digit PIN (personal identification number) protects your SIM card against unauthorised use. When this feature is enabled, the phone requires your PIN each time it is switched on.

Change PIN

Use this menu to change your PIN. The PIN Check feature must be enabled to use this feature.

Phone Lock

The Phone Lock feature locks the phone from unauthorised use.

When this feature is enabled, you must enter a 4- to 8-digit phone password each time the phone is switched on.

The password is preset to 00000000. To change the password, use the Change Password menu.

Change Password

Use this menu to change your phone password. The password is preset to 00000000.

Privacy

Use this menu to lock your media contents, including MMS messages, emails, images, videos, music files and sounds:
1. Press [OK/i] to check the item(s) to lock.
2. Press Save to lock the marked items.
3. Enter the phone password and press OK.
To access a locked item, you need to enter the phone password.

Re: How to recover samsung forgotten password

I dont think there is any way to recover any password for mobile phones rather than a hard reset. Even hard reset may stuck in between because of the security password, as it is require to continue the reset. The only way i can suggest is firmware upgrade. It resets all passwords store on the mobile and also gets some new features and improvements on your device. So go for Firmware Update

Re: How to recover samsung forgotten password

Hi saiful, If your mobile is still under warranty, than better take to the service center for the update. They will not charge you anything. If it is out of warranty, than download Samsung PC Studio and install it on your PC. Make sure your mobile has enough battery charged. Connect your mobile with the PC Studio. There will be an Option for Software update. Click on the same and follow the procedure. Thats it.

Have you locked the samsung GT-E1151 with some password and now you can remember it, if so then you will have to take it to the customer care of the carrier to which the phone was originally locked and talk to a technician. Other than that you can try flashing the phone but you will loose all data so backup your phone first.

Re: How to recover samsung forgotten password

You can reset your phone passwords by reset/firmware update but if you forgot your SIM passwords the only way is to get it from your Service Provider. Rather than this there is no other way. Just call up network provider and ask them for the passwords (PUK if you have tried inserting wrong passwords multiple times.)
