it's the difference between the normal pin-code and the emergency puk-code. But I don't have a razr, not even a motorola. But as far as I know, it's rather standard. See

Read the manual. And find the puk that came with the phone!

a password to unlock the phone, the default is 1234 or the last four digits of your phone number.

If she change it then you might have to go to a T-Mobile dealer and they should be able to help you.

I always change the password from the default of 1234 to the last four digits of my phone number. Works great for the wife and kids also.
