Question about LG Shine KE970 Cellular Phone

Accidentally Locked My Phone

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.

How can I unlock my phone?

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.
Please don't forget to mark if this solution solved your issue.

My phone wont work I was trying to take the security off the app and now it says puk sim locked put in a number and I dont know the number to put in. my phone doesnt work its locked idk how to fix it


A PUK lock is put on the company who supply your phone service. They have locked at Firmware level using an 128bit RSA Encryption key to stop you using the phone. They own the phone and won't let you change providers or play around with security issues. You have to phone them, explain what you did and why and they will give you the key.

Why my sim card showing emergency call only


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.

Can you put a pasword on your lg cookie? Like your text messages


Not specifically for text messages but you can put a phone lock on. The only this is you'll need to do this every time you want the handset locked.

Menu > Settings > Phone Settings > Security > Handset Lock

We hope this helps!

My krzy k1 motorola cell is accidentally lock


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.
