Tip & How-To about Cell Phones

So your phone asks for a PUK Code and you ask if there is another way?

So you read my TIP on PUK Codes and you still wonder if there is another way to defeat a PUK Code. Let me explain in a non technical way with no links. The lock has been put on by the cellular provider at firmware level and only they have the key to the encryption lock that locked it.

They have done this because they own the phone on an undischarged contract. For instance, you or 'they' (the person who had it before it was lost or stolen) took a 2 year plan and there is a still a year to run. Perhaps you are trying to use a different cellular provider on their phone, perhaps Pay As You Go. They know this in various ways, one is that you aren't paying them any money on a monthly basis. So they send a signal (you have to switch it on) to the IMEI number of that phone and lock it

Why did they put the PUK lock on it?

See above, you are trying to use another company, they aren't getting income.

Perhaps you haven't paid your bill for a couple of months and when they try to contact you, you ignore them.

The phone you have is reported stolen and the cellular company are not going to let you use their phone. They want it back or no one is going to use it!

There is another scenario. You have put a consumer lock code into it and stupidly forgot what the code is? How can you forget a code you are using 20 times a day to unlock the phone to use it though? Or perhaps of your nice mates, or baby brother have been playing with it and they have been trying to get into it? After 10 wrong tries, software automatically locks it with a PUK Code. This is to protect you and your data, so a good thing right, just a little inconvenient?

When you phone the cellular company, they will ask you some security questions to make sure you are the owner of their phone as reflected in their records. Expect to answer Name and Address, Date of Birth, e-mail Address, and a question related to a recent call. When they are satisfied they will give you the PUK Code which is between 4 and 6 digits.

Here is the long explanation again, read it, it took me a while to write it as one of my TIPS. There is no other way apart from asking the cellular carrier that the contract of THAT phone is registered with. This has cut 'phone theft to order', and 'phone muggings' to virtually zero. If you have purchased a stolen phone, give it back and get your money back, otherwise you are the proud owner of a paperweight.

You can't do it any other way. The code is 128 bit encrypted at firmware level, so good luck with that.

I wrote two sets of tips, this is the second one for disbelievers such as yourself :>)
