BrutherG,
I was getting the same message after charging the phone and powering it back up.  I do not remember ever touching the Simm card but somehow I had entered it with the 45 degree corner cut-off viewable after insertion which is the wrong orientation.  The end of the card with the corner cut-off is inserted first and will become hidden from view.
Another suggestion is to take a thing swab of alcohol and clean off both the Simm card contacts as will as the round contacts in the phone.  Make sure you gently blow dry the contacts with non-heated air before replacing the Simm card and battery.  I think the real issue all along was contacts slightly covered with a film that was making the phone think it lacked a Simm card altogether.
Hope this helps!

I cant get onto my samsung because my PUK code is blocked and it tells me to call sos but when i say yes nothing happens


Hi,

You will need to look up the phone number of your Network provider. SOS means emergency calls only are available to fire, police ambulance etc... so do not use this even if it does work - unless of course you have an emergency. The PUK code is only available directly from your Network Provider so use google to find their support number and then use another phone to call them. PUK is a personal unblocking key which is actually related to the Sim card and not the actual phone itself. Your Network provider is the only way to gain access to this information.

The good news is the Network provider will give you the PUK for free.


All you need to do is ring your provider (on another phone obviously) and once they have established that you are the owner of the phone they will give you the PUK for free and directions on how to enter it into your phone.

Thank you for using FixYa.

I need d puk no of dis sim 08064515599,it can be send to08032687864.tanx


Please call the Customer Care of your Network Operator (sim card provider), they will tell your the code. There's no other way or no means to get the code except from the Service Operator. They might ask your few questions related to the Sim Card, like your name or your address, tell them promptly and they will give you the puk code for your sim card. It's also important to note down the Sim Card Number (number written on the sim card) if in case they ask you the sim number. You will also be assisted on how to disable the security settings.

Note: if you keep entering random/unknown numbers/codes, the sim card will be locked and will be rejected. It'll not be usable anymore. Good luck.

Thanks for using FixYa.

Should i contact t-mobile in nyc or the service provider here in bejiing to figure out subsidary password to enable bejiing sim to work in usa phone


When you place a new or a existing SIM card from another phone provider into your mobile phone and it asks for a Security code then :-
This phone is locked to the original mobile phone provider. You need to contact this mobile provider to ask for the unlock code (security code) for this phone. You need to provide proof of ownership etc and the phone's unique IMEI number which is located inside the phone under the battery. They use this number to generate the unlock code for your phone.
They should provide you with instructions on how to enter this code into the phone.
Once you unlock the phone, then you can insert a new SIM card in this phone or sign up with another phone provider using this phone.

You could ring the phone provider and ask for the unlock security code because you are going overseas and wish to use your phone with a prepaid SIM card from another country. This maybe a free service.
The other way to get your phone unlock is to use a phone unlocking company on the Internet, they usually charge a couple of Dollars for their services. Use Google and search for "Security unlocking code” companies in your area.

I have a motorola that is asking me for a subsidy password? how can i fix this problem?


To get rid of that message you need to take the following steps.


  1. Obtain a Subsidy Password, also know as an IMEI unlock code. The Motorola subsidy password is an 8 digit code that unlocks your phone for use with other cellular providers. Search Google for Motorola Unlock Codes for a list of retailers. Codes are usually provided within 48 hours, and cost around $30.
  2. *Most providers will not issue the unlock code after your account has been inactive for more that 90 days. They says it is because your account info goes into a "read only" status, and they cannot retrieve the number any longer.*
  3. Enter the IMEI code into the phone. To enter the IMEI code into the phone, all you need to do is insert a SIM card from a different network to the one that your phone is locked to. This will prompt the phone to display "enter subsidy password". Just enter the 8 digit code, and your Motorola phone is unlocked.
