Hi the PUK code is the security code for the sim card and not any code to do with the phone, all you need to do to get the PUK code is call your service provider. your service provider wont charge for giving you the code as the code belongs to you, all you need to tell them is your phone number or if you dont know that then the number printed on the sim card, they will then provide you with the 10digit PUK code for free over the phone. this will then allow you to access the sim card.
The only place you can get the PUK code from is your service provider as their is no where else that keeps these codes, if you still have the card the sim card was attatched to then it will be written on their but if you no longer have this then the only way your going to get the code is by calling your service provider, they wont charge you for this as the code belongs to you,
you do have another option open to you though, if you dont need that sim card then you can go out and get another sim card and when you get given a new sim card you will get given the unique PUK code it will be written on the card the sim card is attatched to.
let me know if you need further assistance ok.
plz rate this solution as i have a whole page of unrated posts, thanks
this code belongs to you so dont pay anyone to give you the code ok, so the best option would be to call your service provider over the phone and ask them for the PUK code, they will ask you for the phone number if you know it or if not they will ask you for the number written on the sim card, once they have this they will then be able to give you the code, this code will only work with the sim thats asking for the code, if you enter the wrong code more than a few times it blocks the sim card and it can no longer be used,
unlock phones are so unperdictable...there may not be a fix for this issue..other then getting an AT&T phone....and even if u are able to get it to start working again more then likely u wil continue to have many more isses..mainly becuz of the network changes..for example....using 3g and 3g only...last year the AT&T network was stil using both 2 and 3g network and there was even a few 2g SIM cards being sold in stores...now it almost all 3g..which of course complicates many things...even if u own a 2g AT&T phone a 3g SIM card can be and will be used on that phone....with unlock phones running on the 2g network the issues with not having a SIM card where possible...it was still unstable when wanting to use data services....but voice services were possible...now with everything going 3g...its makes things alot more complicated with AT&T if using a phone without SIM cards...if ur phone has the fuction to beable to shut off 3g networking and run on 2g.(like the apple iphone has) then try that....good luck
does your country have a tmobile network or tmobile store around there? if no, then it wont do any good for you to use it if there dont have any tmobile network to work with.
sorry to tell you that.
but, you can try to get a unlocked sidekick and use a(whichever carriers you have in india) sim card and insert in a sidekick. but, you will only be able to use a sidekick are make a phone calls and send & receive a text and thats it. nothing else.
hope that answered your question.
Blanked out as will not turn on? Try pressing the green phone **** for aabout 10 seconds shoud either turn phone off or on. ALso call phone from different number to see if it rings. If these steps do not work try the following:
Remove back of phone, Take out battery. completely remove Sim card (possibly large white card in phone, reseat the sim card then replace battery. If you have no sim card just try to remove the battery for a few seconds then replace.
Let me know if it works and vote for me if it does.
sounds like your simcard isn't making good contact. try removing it and cleaning contacts. if that doesn't work go to menu-settings-network options (near bottom) and make surre it is on your service provider. if not select scan manually and when it pulls the list up select your provider and it should work. this also works with the att simcard in a sidekick lx after you change your sim pin number in sim center.
Go to "manage connections". Choose "mobile network options" and change the network selection mode to manual. The phone will search for a minute then show a list of available networks. You should be able to select Edge from there.
