Hello,
If you are referring to security code, please key this in on your daughter's phone. *#06# A 15 digit will then appear. It is your IMEI (International Mobile Equipment Identity). Then please key that number on this link that I will provide and hit calculate. The master security password will then be generated. Please click on the link below.

I need my sim unlocked i meant to put the phone on lock but selected sim by accident. i need a puk code for telus iphone 3g . they are currently closed pls i really need to get a hold of ppl i cant find...


PUK is sim specific and has nothing to do with the phone. It's the security embedded on the sim card. You have to get the PUK code in the card attached in the sim card packaging when you bought it and enter the PUK Code to be able to access your sim. If you can't find it, you have to report to your telecom provider. If they can't do anything, it's time to buy a new sim card.

I transferred all the phone numbers from my old sony ericsson cell phone to my sim card, but cannot figure out how to copy all the sim numbers onto my new sony ericsson vivas pro.


To transfer your contacts through the SIM card:
  1. Copy your contacts from your old phone to your SIM card. If you need help with this, please consult the old phone user guide.
  2. When the copying is done, move the SIM card to your new phone.
  3. Select Menu > Contacts.
  4. If the phone asks you to copy info from the SIM card, skip steps 5-10.
  5. Otherwise, tap Options > Settings > Contacts to display.
  6. Select SIM memory > OK, then tap Back.
  7. Tap Options > Mark/Unmark > Mark all.
  8. Tap Options > Copy > Phone memory.
  9. Tap Options > Settings > Contacts to display.
  10. Select Phone memory > OK, then tap Back.

I need help getting my phone back normal because i hit the puk button and i need to know how to get out of it and every time i turn it on it says puk blocked emergancy calls only


hi the PUK code is the security code for the sim card so if your phone is telling you that either the sim card is blocked or you have enetered the wrong PUK code more than 5 times so what this has done is blocked the sim card.

all you need to do is call your service provider and ask them to unblock the sim how ever as the sim is sayin PUK blocked then this is telling us that the sim has been cancelled. so what you will need to do is either get a new sim and ask for your number to be transfered onto the new sim or cut your losses and just get a new sim and new number.

the problem is as the sim is saying that to ou the chances are the sim is scrap the PUK code is a security code for the sim card should you lose your phone and someone tries putting your sim in another phone to use it or get your details, so what happens is the sim card asks for the PUK code and this code is between 8 and 11 digits so guessing it is impossible and the only place you can get this code from is your service provider.

i would try giving them a call first just in case they can unblock it for you but the chances are it blockend and it now scrap but if you want to keep your old number all you need to do is get a new sim card and aks them to transfer the number onto the new sim card this way you will keep your old number, how ever you will lose all the info on the sim card such as numbers an texts etc, how ever most phones store this info on the phone so you may find that when you put the new sim card in you should have all your number still because they might be stored on the phone and not the sim.

please let me knowhow you get on or if you need further assistance ok

please could you rate this solution as i have a whole page of unrated posts, thanks

LOCKED UP PHONE :( HELP


I am not familiar with that model but if it still uses a SIM card, the lock is probably on the sim card. You could swap out the sim card and unlock that way. Only problem is you'd lose any contacts on the old card and it would likely cost you $20 for the new sim card. The cell phone company should be able to handle it for you but you'll likely have to find a store front.

Securing your Shine
Secure your LG Shine and your account from thieves by locking your phone and your SIM card Losing a phone through accident or to a light-fingered thief is annoying, frustrating and potentially very costly, especially if the 'finder' uses your SIM card to make expensive calls. You can, however, lock both your phone and your SIM card with four-figure PIN numbers to prevent unauthorised use.
The first line of defence is to set a SIM card PIN. This means that whenever you turn on your handset you have to enter a PIN code before the SIM can be used. The default PIN code for your SIM is dependent upon your network; usually it will be found in a small booklet that came with the SIM card.
The PIN can be enabled, disabled or changed from the Security menu – but you only get three chances to enter it correctly. After those three, the SIM will get locked and can only be unlocked by entering the PUK (PIN Unlocking Key) which your network can give you. Enter the PUK incorrectly 10 times, and the SIM will be irrecoverably locked.
To activate a PIN code request, open the main menu by clicking on the scroll wheel. Click 9 to access the Settings menu and click 6 to enter the Security menu. The first item is PIN code request - click 1 or OK to open it. By default this will be set to off. To activate a PIN request, click 1; you'll now be prompted to enter the four-digit PIN. When you've done this, click OK, and if the pin was correct, you'll see the confirmation message 'Complete'.
To deactivate the PIN code request, you would simply select Off from the menu by pressing 2; you'll need to enter the PIN code whenever you change this setting.
PIN code request prevents another user from using your lost or stolen SIM card in their own phone. To lock your phone, and thus render it useless to a thief, you can activate Phone lock.
Two levels of handset locking are available. The first - called 'When power on' in the Phone lock menu - is to require an unlock code to be entered whenever the handset is switched on. This can be confusing and irritating when used together with the SIM PIN, so a second option is to only request the handset unlock code when the SIM card has been changed - called 'When SIM changed'. This means that if your phone is stolen, the thief can't use their own SIM card in it as the phone will need a PIN code to unlock.
To activate either option, go to the Security menu (clicking 9 for Settings and 6 for Security from the main menu) and click 2 to enter the Phone lock menu. Click 2 to activate When power on or 3 to activate When SIM changed. In either case you'll be prompted to enter the security code. By default this is 0000. Enter the code and click OK to confirm.
To change either code, go to the Security menu again (clicking 9 for Settings and 6 for Security from the main menu) and click 5 to enter the Change codes menu. To change the handset's security code, click 1 to select Security code, or to change the SIM PIN, click 2 to select PIN1 code. In either case you'll be prompted to enter the old code before entering the new code twice, clicking OK to confirm each time.

Security code Nokia 3110 classic


SIM pin code:
This is a pin code that locks the sim card until you enter the correct code. This protects your account, even
if your sim is put into another handset. To reset it, you need the PUK code:
Pin Unlock Code (PUK)
If you miss key (or forget) your SIM pin code, and enter the wrong one 3-5 times in a row, the SIM will lock up, and you’ll need to enter the PUK unlock code to release it. You should ask your Network Service Provider for this code when you need it. Don’t try to guess it, because after a few wrong guesses, the SIM card will be permanently disabled.
Phone Security Code:
This locks the handset, as opposed to the sim card. You can also set some handsets to only accept a “new” sim if the phone security code is entered. To reset it, you need the Master code code:
Master Reset Code
Sometimes known as the Master Code, this allows you to unlock a handset if you have entered the Security Code wrongly too many times.
Which is the one that you want?
The default security code for Nokia is 12345
