    I have tried 2 sim cards (which work with my other 2 mobile phones) and I get the same message 'wrong sim card' on this mobile. Looks like the sim slot is the culprit. Will check with a supplier tomorrow.

My samsung SGH-E251 is saying simlock but i want the reset code for is


Hi,

for a phone to display simlock, means that it is not a phone problem, but a Sim problem and does not require reset code.

The Sim card has been blocked and it need to be unblocked.

You need to contact the service provider for the Sim card you are using so that the Sim card can be unblocked.

And the interesting part about this is that the call is free.

Take care.

I purchased a sim card from tmobile to replace my att simcard on my samsung SGH-A707.The new sim card won't work,it sy's incorrect sim and networt lock.


Hello

The sim wont work because it is locked to the att network which means it will only work with att sim cards.

You will have to unlock the phone from the att network before it can work with the T mobile sim card

You should contact your network provider so as to get steps to unlocking your phone from the att network or you should contact a repairer to help you unlock it

SGH-U700 mobile Phone simcard does not fit


Hi, DONT CUT SIM!
Sim cards on the samsungs slot into sim reader which is found under battery. If you remove the battery you should see where it goes. The slot you are referring to sounds like the memory card slot which is an expansion slot if you want to increase the memory size for file storage. Hope that helps?

I have a samsung sgh-d807 that I took apart to repair the slider. When i put it back together everythings works fine but there is no signal at all.


did u replace the sim
sounds crazy but people do forget
failing that,put a sim in from a different network,,this should say card not accepted or simcard not alloweed
then replace with yor normal one
this CAN sometimes force your phone back onto the network

Hi
Since you found it I would either get a new simcard for it or turn it to the police or someone who can look for the owner.

you have entered the pin code wrong 3 times now you are required to enter a puk code to reset the pin code. 

The puk code is sim card spesific it comes with the sim card when you get it or you can get it by calling your phone service provider of the sim card to get the puk code. 


if you have entered the puk code wrong too many times you will make the sim card useless and you will have to contact your phone service provider for a new sim card, it will probably cost.
