E71 firmware updated now asking for lock code?

Last night i upgraded my e71 firmware to 300.21.012 and now its asking me for a lock code to get into my phone. I kind of figured out that by making an emergency call to 112 then hanging up lets me use the phone again untill i switch off and on again then it asks for the code again.

I never had this set to ask for the lock code at any point i never even changed the lock code and it wont accept the original code either. Im really baffed with this anyone else had this problem?

Smile Remote Lock Code

Did you set a remote lock code (sending a coded SMS in case the phone is stolen) ?
Maybe the issue is stuck on this ? I remember some user had this problem .

Smile Reflash or Hard Reset !

It is a peculiar issue . I would try a hard reset first . It is fast . All personal data must be preserved . Vulcan Death Grip you can do when the phone has power off . See my post here :

Code 12345 .

I have thought of this but the phone was bought unlocked from a shop not from the service provider?
