- How do I unlock my N73?
If you have forgotten your security code for your Nokia N73 you should contact either Nokia, your service provider or the store you originally bought the phone from. This is because Nokia unlock codes vary and if you enter the wrong code on three occasions your phone will be blocked and it can be difficult, if not impossible, to get it unblocked.
The unlock codes are codes that Nokia will not give out easily as it would make the personal SIM codes that people have on their phones virtually worthless if everyone knew what the codes were. It is usually best that you do not attempt to unlock the phone yourself; as you could end up making the situation worse.
- What is a lock code?
Cell phones will usually have the option to enter a security code. This is a security code that must be entered either every time the phone is switched on or every time the keypad is unlocked. All phones have the option to lock the keypad to avoid accidentally hitting the keys and calling someone. People often do this when their phone is in their pocket or handbag.
- Should I have a lock code on my cell phone?
It is very important to have a security code on your cell phone. A security code will deter thieves who may be put off stealing your phone when they realize that it is password protected. This would mean that it would be difficult for them to access the phone and therefore sell it on.
It is also important if you have a contract with your cell phone provider as someone could steal the phone and make expensive phone calls that you would have to pay for. Also, if you have a smartphone it is important as it is likely you will have it linked to your email address and your social networking accounts and if someone got hold of your phone they would have access to all of this information.
