    I have been locked out of my phone

    I have a straight talk samsung 451c that was working fine. Then i forgot to up my service and of course my number got changed. Well thats all fine and dandy but when you do the *22890 programing code it changes the security lock to the last four digits of the phone number. When the phone booted up it locked and i cant see what the phone number is and straight talk says it is my old number. 0000 1234 or anything like that does not work. removing the battery does not work. straight talk did all that with me. Is there a way to bypass the security lock . all my phone will allow me to do is dial 911

    There's a menu you just punch in with the keypad. 47*68#13580 <--- That's a menu which you punch in other number's to change settings. You will need to find out the # to reset the phone to COMPLETE Factory Defaults (Everything Cleared, even the phones programming). But WARNING: Do NOT play around in there. You could end up punching in a number, which will make changes to the settings you might not even notice, and a possibility bricking your phone. Straight Talk probably won't tell you the code, but that's my guess.
