    Default 5800 suddenly started asking for security code

    My 5800 has suddenly started asking me for a security code when I want to zero the call counter for example. It has never asked for one before and I have never entered one. I have tried the usual defaults 00000 12345 but none works. Anyone know why it should suddenly start asking for one. I cant recall doing anything that would have invoked the password. The only thing is maybe the latest firmware up grade. How do I clear it?

    Thanks. Keith.

    ps. I dont even know where the settings are, its not under phone management, security. Where do i find security code in the settings?

    you can try like this
    Option I
    Menu-->Setting-->Phone-->Phone Mgmt-->Security-->Phone and SIM card-->then change your Lock Code
    & try this code for clearing your counter.
    Option II
    if you face same problem, do Hard Reset. but before that you should backup your phone memory to pc or memory card.
    you can do this by
    1) Switch Off mobile
    2) Press Green+Red+Camera Keys together & press Power Button & hold those key untill you get Nokia Handshaking Screen.
    but that time you will loose all the [b]phone memory data.
    It will clear that password & the Counter will automatically set to Zero,
    the default code will be 12345 which you now know &
    but 1st option you shud try 1st.

    Ok thanks. Bit strange because your no. 1 worked. It asks for original code so I thought it wouldn't but i tried 12345 and it worked. I set it to a new code and now i can reset the counters. Wired, it defo didnt work last time. Maybe I am going daft but thanks for the pointers.
