Why cant i hard reset my kyocera C6740


1. At the very beginning hold down the Power key in order to switch off the cell phone.
2. Press and hold the Volume Down + Power button for a few seconds
3. You should release held keys when the Recovery Mode starts.
4. Afterwards, press Volume Down a few times to highlight "wipe data/factory reset", and then push the Power button to confirm this option.
5. Next, select "Yes--delete all user data". Use Volume buttons to scroll and Power rocker to select
6. When the Recovery Menu appears once more on the screen, choose "reboot system now".

If this didn't work:
Go to "Settings", then-> "Backup & Reset", after that tap "Factory data reset", choose "Reset phone", and select "Erase everything"

I have a Samsung GT-E2220 when i insert sim its asking for sim lock password my imei no:351821 05 437192/1 please help me !


It is asking for a PUK code. PUK = Personal Unlocking Key.

This can only come from your cellphone carrier and usually the company that still owns the phone under the agreement. Sometimes it is because you have put another SIM card in it, and they own the phone and need you to use them as carrier to get the price of the phone back, or you are in default of payment, or on a Pay as You Go plan, it is over expired. I can also happen if you have entered the unlock code wrongly three times. This often happens when a phone is stolen or lost and has been found by or sold to someone else who then try and use the phone.

Wikipedia
A personal unblocking code (PUC), also known as a PIN unlock key (PUK), is used in 3GPP mobile phones to reset a personal identification number (PIN) that has been lost or forgotten.

Most mobile telephones offer the feature of PIN protection. After switching on the phone, if the PIN security function is active, the user is requested to enter a 4-8 digit PIN enabling the phone's non-emergency calling functions. If the wrong PIN is typed in more than three times, either the SIM card, the device, or both become locked. They can be returned to their original unlocked state by entering a PUC, provided by the service operator after verification. If the wrong PUC is entered ten times in a row, the device will become permanently blocked and unrecoverable, requiring a new SIM card. Cellular phone users are therefore advised by most providers to keep their PUC written down in a safe place separate from the device.

The PUC (PUK) is a SIM-specific code assigned and provided by the service provider.

Once you enter the PUK code, you must set a PIN. The PUK and PUK2 are used to unlock the PIN and PIN2 codes respectively if your SIM card is blocked

From Bell

The PIN unblocking key (PUK; sometimes called personal unlocking key) is a master security code for unblocking and resetting the personal identification number (PIN) for your SIM card. For added security, the PUK is unique to your SIM card.
If your PIN code is active and you enter it incorrectly three times, your SIM card will be blocked. You won't be able to use your phone, except for emergency calls. You must enter your PUK into your phone to unblock the SIM card.
If your SIM card becomes blocked, Contact us to get your PUK.

you may be able to do it from the website or your cellular provider. This is from Orange – T-Mobile in the UK.

Your phone can become blocked in a number of ways - one of them is if you enter your SIM card PIN number incorrectly three times in a row.

To unblock your SIM card, you will need to use something called a PUK (Personal Unblocking Key).

Remember that unblocking is different to unlocking. Read more information on unlocking your device.

why does my Samsung Gusto 3 cut on and off all day?


Problem: Samsung Gusto 3 Flip Phone turns off and on many times during same session


Return for Replacement Suggestion(s):

This is NOT a Samsung known issue because most units work fine. Therefore, it may be either:
(A) a hardware issue in which the phone needs to be taken back to your service provider whom you got it from to be replaced/serviced, OR
(B) it could be a software or battery issue in which you can fix yourself.

* If you don't feel comfortable trying to troubleshoot this problem yourself, OR if after trying to troubleshoot the problem you deem this a hardware issue (that you can not fix yourself):


Determine:

(A) What store you bought it from and their policy to return the phone. If you activated it, and have been using it for some time, returning it to the store may not be an option.. Call them to find out if they can help you with the issue

(B) What carrier phone service provides for this phone? If Verizon, take it to your local Verizon retail store (note: do not take it to a Verizon corporate store, they concentrate on sales and not customer service)


The store representative you bring the phone to will need to see this issue happening or you will have to replicate the problem in front of them, to prove that there is a problem and so that they can help you solve the issue or provide you with a replacement.

Things to bring:
Phone, charged battery, charging wall adapter, charging cable, original purchase receipt, original box with everything that came with it

A master reset is the last resort for troubleshooting. This reset erases all data and restore preferences to factory default specifications. Performing a master reset is only recommended when the existing data has been backed up or is unwanted.

From the main screen, press OK.

Select Settings then press OK.

Select Phone then press OK.

Select Security then press OK.

Enter the Code.
The default code is the last 4-digits of the mobile number.

Select Restore Phone then press OK.

Select Yes then press OK.

Press OK.

Enter the Code.
The default code is the last 4 digits of the mobile number.
