you should take the phone and have it unlock online at mobile2mobile.net or unlokitnow.com or take it to a mobile store and have it unlock for a fee.

SOURCE: SAMSUNG E250i sim crash problem

hi, don't panic! You mobile phone is fine, problem is with the sim card. Try inserting sim card in some other phone (Try Nokia) it will definitely work. If you dont hav different mobile phone then carry your sim card to customer care and they will change the same and give you duplicate sim. They may charge something for duplicate sim card.

My puk code on lifewireless phone it wont let me call or nothing and ihave no other way to contact them


The phone has been locked at firmware level by the cellular company that owns the phone using an encrypted key. Only you will know why they put the PUK code on it, stolen, reported stolen, bill unpaid or consumer set lock code tried 10 times in error.

You phone them using another phone. My Tips mention all you need to know, but the bare bones are above.

My galaxy s6 edge has been blacklisted how do I get it off the blacklist


It is blacklisted because it has been reported stolen. Where did you get it Melissa?

http://www.protectyourdata.ca/check-the-status-of-your-device-in-canada/

Take the phone and yourself to the shop or mall kiosk of your cellphone carrier. Tell them the reason why your phone should NOT be blacklisted. Only they can remove it.

What does it mean for a GSM mobile device to be unlocked? What sort of locks are there? How is that different from Blocked? What is a Barred or Banned or Blacklisted cell phone? That is what this guide will look at. Blacklisted - If you phone is lost or stolen you can report the International Mobile Equipment Identifier (IMEI) to your carrier. They will broadcast that number throughout their network and make it impossible for the phone to connect to make a call. This known as blacklisting the phone. This is sometimes called a barred or banned device. In some areas the various carriers share the IMEI numbers of lost and stolen devices making it impossible to use the device on any carrier. In some countries this sharing is a requirement of law.
A blacklisted phone should be returned to the owner. This can be done by dropping it off to the carrier branded on the phone. Then it is up to them to return it to the subscriber. You can check with your carrier prior to purchase to see if a phone will activate on that carrier. You will need the IMEI from the seller, then you are a phone call away from knowing if you are about to buy a lost or stolen lightweight desk ornament.

How can i block the my SIM cause its been stolen to me?


Ifyour mobile phoneis lost or stolen you can inform your cell phone provider with your IMEInumber. Your cell phone provider can then put the serial number on a shareddatabase. This list stops this particular phone from registering on any networkand will be useless for anyone even if the mobile phone's SIM cardis changed.Otherwise I suggest you contact your cell phone providerASAP.

Hi I am just wonderin if I can gt help. I brought a phone from a advertisment in a local shop I paid 90 pounds an then I had buy a charger as the man said it broke it is a blackberry curve and every thin...


I think this means that the phone was stolen or reported stolen . Each phone has imei number which is supposed to be an identifier. Usually when the phone is reported stolen the network operater updates the database and all operators in that country will block it from connecting to any network. they share information.
This phone is almost certainly stolen , the fact it comes without a charger adds suspicion, in my opinion. the only thing to do here is take the phone back for a refund. Perhaps consider asking for compensation for the purchase of the charger also.

Help! Please


You can't have it locked without the IMEI number, but your Network Service Provider can give you a new SIM card and Void the other.
Blacklisting:
This is not a security code, but it works like one! To help combat mobile phone thefts, the networks share a database of the IMEI (International Mobile Equipment Identity) of mobile phones that have been reported stolen. Once a phone is on this list, it will not be allowed to use any of the networks.
This can be a risk if you buy a second-hand phone, because if it has been stolen, or if an unscrupulous seller makes an insurance claim after selling, the phone you bought in good faith may be permanently disabled.
Be very careful to check the source of a second-hand phone!

I cant get into my phone


This type of lock is called a Subsidy block. Carriers have placed these locks to keep phones that were lost or stolen from being reactivated. If you have your receipt, you can call the carrier for the unlock code. However, they will require information, such as the IMEI code and SIM card # to determine if this phone has ever been reported lost or stolen. That said, you will not get the unlock code until that carrier completes their research (48-72 hrs). That is only if the phone is not lost or stolen.
