Nokia N8 not accepting default lock code before restore

Q: I’m having a problem restoring my factory settings. I never changed the lock code on my my phone from the default 12345 but everytime I try to reset the phone it asks for the lock code but it will not accept the default. Can you help, anything is appreciated?!

If you cannot get the phone to accept the default '12345' passcode, then you should try every other code you've used on the Nokia N8 in the past. If none of these work, i would suggest taking your phone to a Nokia Care centre or emailing/Twitting them for help. This isn't an issue we've come across before, sadly.
