Cellular Phones/Forgot Nokia X7 password


Hi, I forgot my Nokia X7 passcode. I used it awhile back before getting an iPhone so I have been using the iPhone and forgot about it. I don't know if you can answer this kind of question, but can you tell me if you can factory restore it like you can with the iPhone if you forgot the passcode? Thanks.

I believe you may be able to reset the password by typing a password 10 times and then it may reset.  I can't tell you this for certain, but it's worth a try. It works with BlackBerrys but I'm not sure if it will work with a Nokia but it's worth a try. Otherwise, take it into your wireless carrier and they can help reset it for you. I hope this helps.
