    Hello,
    I am new to this cell phone thing. I bought a phone off a buddy, and there is a 4 digit code on it. He does not know the code, nor do i. How can i get this code or find out how to turn this feature off. I will not let me do anything. I can dial numbers, but when i go to send, the box looking for the 4 digit code comes up. I'm so stuck but desperate to get this working. Any ideas are much appreciated. I've already tried taking it to the company, but they said that can't do anything for it. Ideas? Thanks a tonne.

    Cell locked

    Usually its the last four digits of the number that its programmed to but it also depends on the manufactuer like nokia is 12345 motorola is either all "0" or 1234 and lg is last four of the preprogrammed number as well as kyocera is last four digits also.

    do you know if the phone is "sim lock" or "phone lock"? if that is sim lock just remove the sim and put a non working sim card to get access to a regular srceen. press menu, setting, security setting, sim card security, turn the sim security off. but if that is a "phone lock" you gonna need a help of a pro.

    Yeah i deffinatly think it's a phone lock. I can't access the menu or anything. I'm almost thinking that i'm going to have to open the phone and reset it from the inside. Any ideas or opinions on this?

    Thanks again!

    emailed them. Wasn't much help. They said they couldn't really do anything about it. Hmm.. what to do now? I'm thinking that my last option is to open it up myself and try a few things. Not really what i wanted to have to do, but might be my last option? Looking for some "how to's" if anyone has any info on this.

    Thanks again!
