Phone says there is no sim card but its installed.


SIMM card could have dirty contacts, pull out the card and clean the contacts with a pencil eraser used gently and a clean cloth, reinstall. SIMM card could also be from a different carrier than the phone was originally designed for (phone is locked).

I need a puk code for my lg gt405 viewty it is a contract phone and i have put a handset lock on it and i forgot my pin and locked it by mistake so please ncould you help me thankyou


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..........

Hi

If you enter the PIN and PUK code on your phone incorrectly to many times, the sim card will the become blocked. At this point, u can take it to the service operator office and they ask some questions about your sim card.. and they can unlock it....

Puk code


PUK- stands for PIN UNBLOCKING KEY.. well this happen only when u enter an invalid passcode when u enable a password protection for ur sim card. this is different when u miss entering codes on your phone lock. note: "sim locks", and "phone locks" are different from each other. sim locks only allows u 3 tries and after that a PUK will be required. while phone locks dont have any limit. so if thats the case.. ur only hope is the manual that comes with your sim cad. in there u can access for ur PUK and after entering that successfully u can now access ur sim card. but if not, u have to buy another sim card or change another number. but u can still use your phone.. -jepoyPH

Your pin number is probably your sim code!
Check PUK
SIM pin code:
This is a pin code that locks the sim card until you enter the correct code. This protects your account, even if your sim is put into another handset. To reset it, you need the PUK code:
Pin Unlock Code (PUK)
If you miss key (or forget) your SIM pin code, and enter the wrong one 3-5 times in a row, the SIM will lock up, and you’ll need to enter the PUK unlock code to release it. You should ask your Network Service Provider for this code when you need it. Don’t try to guess it, because after a few wrong guesses, the SIM card will be permanently disabled.
Phone Security Code:
This locks the handset, as opposed to the sim card. You can also set some handsets to only accept a “new” sim if the phone security code is entered. To reset it, you need the Master code code:
Master Reset Code
Sometimes known as the Master Code, this allows you to unlock a handset if you have entered the Security Code wrongly too many times.
Are you sure it’s the Master code you need. Which is the one that you want?
Special Code/Service Provider Lock Code:
This code is required to allow a phone locked to a particular network's SIM cards to be used with a SIM card from another network. Orange and T-mobile lock handsets in this way, though O2 and Vodafone are beginning to lock PAYG and WAP handsets. The unlock code varies from individual handset to handset.
Blacklisting:
This is not a security code, but it works like one! To help combat mobile phone thefts, the networks share a database of the IMEI (International Mobile Equipment Identity) of mobile phones that have been reported stolen. Once a phone is on this list, it will not be allowed to use any of the networks.
This can be a risk if you buy a second-hand phone, because if it has been stolen, or if an unscrupulous seller makes an insurance claim after selling, the phone you bought in good faith may be permanently disabled.
Be very careful to check the source of a second-hand phone!
Voicemail Pin:
This is a code that you choose to secure the voicemail/answer phone service on your mobile phone account.
If you do not set a voicemail PIN, you may not be able to access voicemail from anywhere but your own mobile phone. In some cases, leaving the voicemail PIN at the default can let other people listen to or delete messages left for you. There may be a default code (3333 on Vodafone), but you should change it straight away!
