Reset n79 lock code

If you haven't set a lock code, the default is 12345 .

If you've set and forgotten it, try turning off the phone, then pressing and holding the green (on) key, the number 3 key, and the asterisk (*) key. Keep them depressed until the phone is powered on. That will reset the entire phone to factory (meaning you'll lose anything stored on it: apps, contacts, messages, etc.), and the default lock code will be 12345 again.

On some versions of this phone, that won't work. For those, you'll need to take it into a Nokia technician.

Try to format the phone memory, but this will erase all your data, so, first save the info you need- contacts, photo, etc.

1) Factory defaults-
Type *#7780# on your standby screen.
This will reset all your setting to default factory settings. User data wont be affected. (Default Lock code is 12345)

2) Soft reset-
Type *#7370#
This will reset the phone as well delete user data. Use when want to format the phone.

Cant send messages but can receive messages on my nokia n79

first try to clear your sent items or archive folder the restart the phone then try to send messages,
next try resetting it to factory setting, but be sure to backup all needed data, including inbox items and phonebook, just go to settings,restore factory settings and it will ask for code, and the default would be 12345, if you havent changed it, if you did changed the code use the code you have set.
if the solutions above doesnt fix the problem you can try to contact your service provider because this could be network problem or your account with them might have some issues and needs to be fixed.
Lastly if all of the steps are not fixing the issue, I suggest you bring your phone to the nearest phone repair shop accredited by NOKIA, for possible re-programming or re-formatting.
