Let me give you a little background and then some solutions. This generic because I don't know your carrier. I've used ATT as an example.
Phones are naturally unlocked, but a service provider might lock them
When originally manufactured, all GSM cell phones are unlocked. That is, they can be used with any SIM from any cellphone service provider - always assuming, of course, that the cellphone service provider has compatible GSM service on the same frequency bands that the phone can operate on.
Most cell phone service providers electronically 'lock' the phone so that it can only be used with their service. There are obvious reasons why they choose to do this - in particular, to force you to pay what are usually very high roaming charges when you take your phone out of their network and use it elsewhere in the world.
Fortunately, this locking is reversible. With some phones, it is possible to simply enter an unlocking password code into the phone and it is immediately then unlocked. Other phones need to be connected up to a special unlocking data terminal.
Your phone has to be unlocked by the carrier. LG, Motorala, Sony Ericsson, Nokia and most of their ilk, will not give consumers the unlock codes but don't despair.
A PUK (PIN Unlock Key) code is required to unlock SIM cards that have become locked following three successive incorrect PIN entries. If your SIM card becomes locked, you will need to get a PUK code from your carrier. For example, if you have AT&T to unlock your SIM card, you can obtain your phone's PUK code from AT&T by:
logging in to your myWireless Account online
using their Technical Support Chat
calling Customer Care at 1-800-331-0500
To get your phone's PUK code online from ATT:
Log in to your myWireless Account.
Select My Services under My Account.
From the My Services screen, select My Phone/Device.
Select Unblock SIM Card.
The Unblock SIM screen will display your PUK code.
Once you receive your PUK code, you will need to enter it into your phone to set a new PIN code.
Note: If you enter the wrong ATT PUK code 10 times in a row, your SIM card will be invalidated, and you will need to purchase a new SIM Card. The phone will display the following error: "PUK blocked call operator."
There are three other ways to unlock a phone:
The carrier will unlock the phone for you at one of its retail outlets;
-> You need a new extension number for your set? -> You need a new extension on your set so you can see when they are on their phone?
If it is the first, there are many things that you need first, too much to explain at the moment. But you need to have the password and a template for your phone to make changes.
If it is the second, press: - Feature * 0 and any button to find out what is on the button, look for an empty button or one that you want to overwrite, - then RLS, - press FEATURE * 2 - press the button where you want to add this new extension - dial the extension of the new person
I called my ex-wife who is contracted to cingular and asked her how I could fire ATT and if she knew of a phone company I could hire to replace them and she asked if I had been drinking or if I was not taking my Lithium. I then called ATT one more time and this time I listened to the whole Hal **** one more time and did not hit the operator button and waited for the para uno and listened for the whole long ******* Hal presentation and got the right option to add the call forwarding feature which allowed me to forward my calls to 1 800 we answer. Phew!
I believe the problem is not the handset phone but the telephone line because the phones were working for a brief period again last night. As I said, ATT is supposed to send a repair man out today to check the lines. If the repair man says the problem is not the telephone line, I may contact you again. Thanks/
