Pre-owned N80 - Locked

I got a loaner phone from ImportGSM.com while my N73 is being repaired. The previous user has locked the loaner phone. When I turn it on, I get the Nokia logo, followed by a prompt for Lock Code: ______. I had put my SIM in as soon as I got the phone in the mail, and was greeted with that. After I took my SIM out, I still get the prompt.

Is there anyway to bypass this or reset the code? It will not connect to USB at this point in boot up so NSS flashing is out of the question.

I have already called ImportGSM and they called the previous user, but I have a feeling the user may not call back.

One way is doing an upgrade... But I think that is only possible with the phone turn on and in General Profile, so... Try

right after you turn on your phone, press "Send"(green key), "*", and "3" at the same time.

Thanks. Didn't get a chance to try though cause I got the code. Previous user was dumb enough to leave not only the lock code but ALL his contacts, text messages, photos, videos and music on the phone.
