I am trying to do restore factory settings in my Nokia 2960 mobile. I had set a password but I’ve forgotten. Is there any other way to make restore factory settings? Please help me. Thanks in advance!

    The default code if you never changed it is 12345.

    if you changed it and would like to reset then then it can only be reset by Nokia Care Point! they will require proof of purchase i believe.

    try this to see if it will work for you to hard reset or factory settings
    •Turn off Nokia phone
    •At the same time push the buttons '3' + '*' (Asterisk or Star)+ 'Answer Button'. Or push this 3 (Capslock, space, backspace) at the same time.
    •Restart the phone while pushing these 3 buttons.
    •When the Nokia logo shows you can let go this 3 buttons

    Have you tried Nokia support?

    I have search up and down the internet for an easy way to break the code but with no luck so Nokia was my next best answer.
