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.

Puk code for Alcatel phone


Phone asks for PUK because you missed SIM code. PUK code was provided you when your bought your SIM card and it's on original container.
If you don't have it you should go to your Mobile Servie and get problem solved, probably by getting a new SIM card. This means that you'll lose all informaton on your SIM card

WHAT IS THE PUK CODE FOR SENY EXPERIA S MODEL ?


Your SIM code was locked because you gave it 3 times incorrectly and now phone asks for the PUK code to unlock the SIM.

PUK stands for 'PIN Unlock Key'. It's a unique code that is linked to your specific SIM card and is usually 8 digits long.

The PUK code is unique to your SIM card, so you can only get this from your mobile network. Sometimes they will give you this when you first get the SIM card, but not all networks do this. If you cannot find it, give your mobile network a call or visit their Cutomer's Service and they will be able to give you the PUK code after you have answered some security questions.

PUK code nokia N70


PUK is an acronym for Pin Unblocking Key. It is associated directly with your SIM card and the security of the phone (like setting up a password, etc).

Most commonly, a phone will prompt you for this code when you go through the security settings2_bing.gif and select that you would like to have your phone password protected. The phone will then ask you to enter the PUK code, giving you only a few chances before it will display "PUK blocked". (If you phone says "PUK blocked" right now, call your service provider (AT&T, T-Mobile, etc) to get a free one and save yourself $25)

The PUK code is not anything you have created. Do not try generic codes like 0000 or 1234. It is an eight digit, factory defaulted series of random numbers.

To get the code and to avoid breaking your SIM card2_bing.gif and having to purchase another, immediately contact your service provider (AT&T, T-Mobile, etc) and they will give you the code in less than five minutes.
