I was looking through my phone, and i saw the security settings and decided to play around with them. One specific setting intrigued me the most, the PIN settings. I decided to try to change my PIN settings, so i turned the PIN settings on, and it asked me my PIN. Me not knowing just put in 1234 or 0000 the usual default passwords. The thing i did not notice was that i only had 3 chances, and i failed them all. So then it brought me to another password screen called the PUK code. I also did not know this code, and stupidly tried to guess, and after 8 tries, the phone finally decided to lock up and not let me use it, unless for 911 purposes.
You can get your PUK Code from your service provider. Should be a quick call after they verify your account info. Unfortunately there is not a DEFAULT PUK Code and the service provider is the only one that can tell you what your SIM PUK was set to when the card was activated.

You may have accidentally called 911 and hung up. You have to call 911 back simply explain that you made a mistake and they'll remove it from your phone through your number. Another reason would be that you either have a sim locked phone from your service provider and there is a different sim card from another service provider installed. You'll have to unlock the phone. OR your phone is locked for security reasons. A person can easily lock the phone in settings and apply a password to unlock the screen to access the phone. All of the above will give you the sceen you decribed.

Unless you changed the security code on your own it should be the last 4 digits of your cell phone number, and if that fails best bet is to call your carrier and see what they can say or what they can do.
I bought this phone a while ago and set a security code when i first got it and i accidentally locked my phone today and cant seem to remember the code to unlock it. Is there any way i can get it unlocked?
There are two codes for the security of the MOTOROLA L6, the unlock code which is usually 4 digits and is set originally to '1234' and the security code which is 6 digits and set at the factory to '000000'. These codes are the same across the world unless a specific service provider decides to change them. • To change the unlock code, you can go to NEW PASSWORDS by going to the SECURITY option in the SETTINGS menu. The phone will prompt you to enter UNLOCK code, Put in '1234' or the last 4 digits of your phone number and if both don't work, try the security code 6 digit number. • If you lose the other codes like SIM PIN code, PIN2 code, cell barring password and even the SECURITY CODE, these can be reset by only the service provider. • You can prevent others from misusing your phone locking it when not in use. This is achieved by selecting LOCK NOW in the PHONE LOCK options in the SECURITY menu • Choosing AUTOMATIC LOCK to ON in the PHONE LOCK menu will lock the phone automatically whenever it is turned off. • A locked phone can receive phone calls but will need to be unlocked using the code to be answered • There is also a simple way to prevent accidental pressing of keys by locking the key pad using the main menu soft key followed by the '*' key in quick succession.
