Nokia 3650 help -- thank God for the Russians and Slavs!

I love the Russiand and the Slavs, I really do. Trained in mathematics and electronics, they do things that I find amazing. For example, my Nokia 3650 had a corrupted contacts.cdb file, which you can't edit if you use the phone because the file gets locked on boot.

Furthermore, I couldn't hard reset the phone because I lost the lock code.

Nokai was no help, they wanted $100 and four weeks to flash it. T-Mobile was no help, they couldn't flash the phone and tried the defaults... which I already tried.

At this point I thought I should look into a 3rd party gearhead, when I stumbled upon this: http://nfader.z-host.ru. You enter your phone serial, it emits the MASTER SECURITY CODE. How Nokia did not have this, I can't tell you.

Sound cancelling headphones, at the dentist office

I really like my dentist. I am very hard to numb, and very sensitive to pain. My dentist knows that I hate having work done, and have a miserable time with it. He has Bose sound cancelling headphones and some portable CD players floating around. I brought in my favorite CD (The Beatle's number 1 hits) and listened to that instead of the drill. It didn't totally ease the pain of the dentist, but the nitrous oxide didn't hurt any either.
