How do I locate the PUK number for my tracfone?


Usually the PUK numbers for prepaid devices are located in the SIM cardboard. If bought the phone brand new, the SIM card comes not install in the phone, and you need to cut it out from where it is attached from, that piece should have some numbers, and there should be a scratch off, inside that scratch off is your PUK number. Now, I want to make it clear that not all of them have the PUK number, for example, T-Mobile has decided to remove it from their SIM cad. You can also try to contact your wireless carrier, they should have this information stored in your account. Best of luck.

I am using BSNL Cell one prepaid sim on my mobile. Recently I changed my mobile to Motorola Defy. In my previous mobile I could browse internet, but with the new mobile when I try to access google or gmail...


If you are using the BSNL SIM card in your new Motorola then you need to contact BSNL and ask them how to configure the Motorola to get into their Data network.

Just got new cell phone its now saying no air time .but i just opend the box.


hi robbin,
when you purchase a new phone, and if you are using a prepaid sim card or you applied for a prepaid account, then the reason why you are getting a prompt no airtime is because you don't have enough credits on your account to be able to make a successful call.
you need to reload your account by buying a prepaid card or thru internet banking transferred to your mobile phone number (if your carrier supports this)
or your account may not be active yet, you may contact your service provider for them to activate your account.
thanks, nina

I bought a prepaid phone card for my lg cookie and it will not let me add it i called at&t and they did something and made my phone not have a number and now it says i do not have a sims card too what...


if you are using a sim card from a prepaid phone just bought, and then add it to another att branded phone, it will not work. if you use the sim card in the new prepaid phone, it will work. att locks the sims from working in other phones for 3 months from the factory. i did the same thing with a prepaid phone and a Q9, put the sim in the q9 and it said, no service. put the sim in the prepaid phone, it worked fine. my suggestion is to talk nice ot the att store employee, and they will give you a new sim.

let me know if your phone is doing something different.

I bought a rim blackberry phone off ebay and I wanted to know how to activate it. And is it possiable to buy a prepaid phone card.


The 8330 Model is a CDMA phone and thus does not accept a SIM Card like a GSM BlackBerry would. So you can not but a prepaid Phone card or SIM card, but there are companies who now offer Prepaid Plans on the CDMA 8330 if you do not wish to activate a contract.

MetroPCS started the prepaid BlackBerry movement a little over a year ago when it launched the Curve 8330. The offering is far from perfect. First, it only works in MetroPCS’s legacy markets, so it won’t work in its AWS areas, which include New York City and Boston.

After it announced it’s Complete line of plans, T-Mobile also announced a prepaid BlackBerry plan.

The latest to offer prepaid BlackBerry services is Boost Mobile.

I am not sure where you live and what providers are available to you, but check with your local Carriers, to see what options are out there for your 8330.

Unlocking my sony ericsson w580i


IF U ARE USING THE SAME CARRIER AS BEFORE (ATT FOR EXAMPLE) IT WONT NEED UNLOCKED. IF U WERE GIVEN A NEW SIM CARD FROM UR CARRIER WHEN THE NEW PHONE WAS BOUGHT, THEN YOU WILL HAVE TO USE THE SIM CARD. THE CARRIER ATTACHES THE SIM CARD NUMBER TO UR ACCOUNT. YOUR OLD ONE CAN BE USED ONLY TO ACCESS YOUR CONTACTS, BUT NOT TO MAKE CALLS.YOU CAN HOWEVER PUT THE OLD SIM CARD IN UR NEW PHONE FOR THE SOLE PURPOSE OF TRANSFERRING UR CONTACTS, THEN REPLACE YOUR NEW SIM CARD INTO UR NEW PHONE

I bought a sidekick 3 off ebay but it is still locked to the previous owner's sim card number


I had the same problem with the sidekick i bought off of ebay , when you cal customer care just tell them you got it off ebay and you need the old users information deleted, they will give you step by step instructions on how to do so. Remember to not call on your sidekick becasue you will have to restart the phone.

What SIM card will work in Europe in the Samsung SGH-x427m


Any SIM card that is activated (not expired or cancelled) by the issuing carrier should work, assuming that your Samsung phone operates on the correct frequencies for the country you are in.

You need three things to be true for all this to work.
  1. Your phone must be unlocked. (You have this one OK)
  2. Phone must work on the frequencies for your country (I don't think your Samsung covers European frequencies, from the web sites I checked)
  3. You must have a valid SIM card, either prepaid or on a billing contract
Having said that, the price charged for your calls will vary widely from carrier to carrier. For occasional use, the cheapest thing to do is to buy a prepaid SIM that is issued in the country you are in. I would NEVER take a US SIM card to Europe and use it there unless (a) price was no object; or (b) I absolutely HAD to be reachable by others using my US phone number.
