Hi,

If you never 'set' an unlock code for your phone, the default code is usually "0000", or the last four digits of the cell phone number. To be able to enter the code try these steps:
  1. Try to dial any telephone number, and you will then get the message your Phone is locked. Press "Unlock."

  2. Once you press "Unlock," you will be asked to enter the lock code or your PIN number. This is when you enter "0000", or the last four digits of the cell phone number
  3. After you enter the code press "OK." Your phone should now be unlocked.

Please let me know if you need further assistance.
