How Do I Unlock a Nokia 6280?

34

If someone gets access to the contents of your mobile phone, he could potentially view personal information, photos and passwords. To protect your privacy, Nokia has included a security feature on its 6280 model that, when activated, safeguards the contents of the phone by requiring the input of a security code. Using this code, the phone can be locked and unlocked in a few quick steps.

Security Keyguard

Press any key to activate the backlight. Select the “Unlock” option. Select the “*” key.

Enter the user-generated personal security code, which is comprised of five to 10 digits. The default code is 12345. It can be changed by pressing “Menu” > “Settings” > “Security” > “Access Codes,” then entering a new code.

Automatic Keyguard

Press any key to activate the backlight.

Select the “Unlock” option. Select the “*” key within 1.5 seconds to unlock the phone.

Tips & Warnings

  1. You can place calls to the pre-determined emergency number stored in the phone even if the lock has been activated.
  2. Select the “Call” key to accept a call when the automatic keyguard is active.
  3. When the automatic keyguard is active, the phone will lock each time a call is ended or rejected.
  4. After five incorrect entries of the access code, the phone will automatically lock up for five minutes. Additional attempts can then be made at inputting the correct code.
