How to Unlock the Memory Card in a Nokia Mobile

By Ryan Mooney

The Nokia mobile phone can be used for multimedia and other storage functions. The handset saves all items, such as music and pictures, to a memory card instead of the built-in storage. Memory cards such as a microSD can be locked to prevent unwanted access to your private items. The card cannot be used in any other phone. If you purchased a used card or forgot your password, you can unlock the memory card.

Step 1

Turn off the phone and insert the memory card into the memory card slot. Turn the phone back on.

Step 2

Press the "Menu" button on the main screen and click on the option for "Extras."

Step 4

Select the "Options" icon on the screen. Scroll through the list to the "Unlock Memory Card" option and press "OK."
