However, there may be times when you want to reset your Nokia phone without using either of these security measures. Perhaps you want to give someone an unrestricted look at the photos on your phone or perhaps you’ve forgotten the lock code and can’t get back into it. Whatever the case, this article will explain how to reset your Nokia phone without using either of those security codes.
