The Motorola KRZR is an updated and streamlined version of the popular RAZR cell phone. Like most phones, the KRZR offers a code unlock security function that allows you to choose a Personal Identification Number (PIN) and lock the phone. The phone will not unlock until you re-enter the PIN code. The default code is rather weak, usually four predictable numbers like 0000 or 1234. For security purposes, it's important to know how to change it.
