I've got a Nokia 3530. Recently i've ran out of SIM memory for phonebook, so i tried enabling the phone memory.When i tried to do so, it says "Phone Memory Protected" and asks be for a security code. I don't know this security code, so as a result i can not enable the phone memory.
Can anybody give me any ideas on how this code can be bypassed ?

Try 1234 or 0000 or 9999 as they are the usual factory set security settings...
If however you bought a used set/ha a changed security code for some reason, then you would need to flash the EEPROM in the set.

^^ adding to that, sometimes it is 12345 too..

BTW, try to copy/move a couple of phone numbers from the SIM card on to the phone. U'll find the option in Phone Book. If it still asks for the code, then try one of the codes suggested above.

Hey, buddy!

For Nokia handsets, the default code is 12345!

Again, how do i do it, there's no option as such, visible now, to do that
