Can anybody tell me what to do if my UMI HAMMER cellphone is completely closed up and says to put in the "Private personality-security code"? Any other PIN or PUK doesn't work, and I also can't get through to the USB-Debug Mode. It seems to be an Android specific problem.

That means the phone has been network-locked. You have typed a wrong PIN or PUK many times, and because of that it has been completely locked, but not broken. In some cases, this is considered as being "soft-bricked". To fix it, you need to visit a local phone service shop. They have custom hardware to connect the phone to in order to remove the lock. The price ranges based on the type of the phone, its popularity and difficulty. Unfortunately, this is the only way to do this.
