Re: Call Barring password

G'day kiwigirlinoz,


Did you buy it new or borrowing from someone?

It sounds like a phone PIN, have you tried 0000 or 1234?

Re: Call Barring password

I did try those codes after finding that info online and going into a Optus shop. No matter what Sim I put into the phone I cannot call out or receive calls

It sounds like a security passcode set by the user of the phone that we wouldn't know.


You could try factory resetting it but would need to back up all your data first, photos, contacts, etc.

Re: Call Barring password

I managed to fix the problem thankyou. Not quite even sure how but it was from a different provider having unusual call forwarding settings.
All's well
