PUK Code
PUK stands for Personal Unblocking Key. This is a unique eight-digit code specific to your SIM card. This is required when the PIN number to unlock your mobile phone is entered incorrectly 3 times. You are then given 10 attempts to enter your PUK code. If an incorrect PUK code is entered after the 10th attempt, you will block your SIM card permanently and will require a new SIM card from your mobile phone provider.
PUK codes can be obtained through the following ways - The PUK code is in your SIM card documentation Starter Pack. If you do not have this then - Please contact your phone service provider.
Your cell phone service provider can give you the PUK code once you give them your account details and they have confirmed your identity. For details to obtain the PUK code for the SIM card, please click on this link and follow my instructions.

I need a free code to change from orange to o2

Hello, unlocking a cellphone is not a free process. The unlock code you will get from free sources wont work at all and you will end up hardlocking the phone.

When you attempt to unlock with wrong unlock code the phone gets hard locked after few attempts (mostly 10 attempts) and after that you wont be able to unlock your device at all.

Unlock code not accepted

If your unlock code is not accepted by your mobile then it may be a wrong code. Each and every mobile phone has some number of limited attempts. If you enter the wrong unlock code on your mobile phone, it may get hard locked and sometimes it may become unusable. Check the number of attempts remaining. If all attempts got finished you need to hard reset your phone. If not Get the correct unlock code from the site ,and unlock Your Samsung Galaxy S I9000 yourself using unlocking instructions which is given in the site itself.

I have a blackberry torch and i have been trying to unlock it now it says 0 attempt left please what can be done because my phone is new and i hav'nt used it before i just got it

My dear,

you have zero attempts left to unlock your blackberry. It is no problem. You can get it reboot or reset and then it would again have 10 attempts. After doing that, you can get your blackberry unlocked from Blackberry Unlocking Codes with IMEI. This vendor is highly reliable and uses only 1 attempt in total and provides excellent customer service. I am pasting the link for your model that would redirect you to Torch collection by CLICKING HERE.
