Sim card can damage or it can disconnect by the Operator.When we put wrong pin code repeatedly for more than 10 times this will happen.During this the only solution is to contact the particular Sim Card Operator to replace new Sim with the same number.Thanks for visiting fixya.

WHEN I ENTER SIM card in my sumsung mobile Gt- E2550 then they are asking for the PIN number. what is the PIN number ofr it?

Hello there,

If your Sim card is asking for pin card, it simply means there is a pin meant to be entered before you will be able to access the sim card.

If the default pin have not been changed at any point in time, it simply will be the pin that is present on the sim pack. At the back of the sim pack, there are some codes there, check for the pin code there, enter it into the phone where you are supposed to enter the pin number, it will accept it and you will have access to your sim card.

But if it does not accept it, then it means the pin number of your sim card have been changed and if you do not have the new one, you will have to contact the help center/ customer care of your sim cards service provider, they will give you a factory reset pin for your sim card.

Hope this was helpful to you.

Recieved new sim card,after old card was do i activate if ive forgotten pin number

If you've received a new SIM card, it has a default PIN number that you can get from the person who issued you the SIM card, just call and ask the person who issued it. It is usually 0000 or 1111, but I do not recommend trying, since you'll need a PUK code if you miss PIN code three times.
If this helps, please rate. Thank you

My samsung B7722, first time insert sim card, after enter pin number, error massage came out "phone freeze, sim unavailable, please contact your service provider" how to settle?

Tired of memorizing new PIN codes? We show you how to change your SIM card's various PIN and PUK codes in less than 5 seconds.

Although most people remember their primary SIM PIN code, those othercodes - used for various verification purposes - are never to be foundwhen needed. Below we've included a set of short codes which, whenentered on a handset's standby screen, will let you easily change PINand PUK (short for Pin Unlock Code) codes - but keep in mind, they maynot work with all handsets and mobile operators.

More importantly, when changing ones PUK codesthere'll be no help to get from the mobile operator if the new codesare forgotten, so make sure to write any changes down alongside the oldPUK codes. Also, please note that the codes should be entered withoutthe spaces shown below.

Change SIM Card PIN

** 04 * old PIN * new PIN * new PIN #

Change SIM Card PIN 2 (Write down the new code)

** 042 * old PIN * new PIN * new PIN #

Change SIM Card PUK (Write down the new code)

** 05 * old PUK * new PUK * new PUK #

Change SIM Card PUK 2 (Write down the new code)

** 052 * old PUK * new PUK * new PUK #

My sim card is blocked on my Blackberry 8830. It keeps asking for to enter a PUK code. I finally found one technician at Sprint yesterday who knew the PUK code but after entering that, then the phone asked...

PUK code can be used 10 times,then SIM card is gone forever. PUK is needed if 3 times wrong PIN was typed. So type PUK and when ask New PIN choose any number (4 digits) then re-enter again and that's it.

as youve entered the puk code, it asks for the new pin code, the default code was 1234 right? so if you are going to try the new pin code yu can either invent a new pin code or just enter the default code.

hope this helps.

The PUK (Personal Unblocking Key) is available at your service provider. Some sort of Identity will be needed.
