Re: won't take charge and key pad flashes

Hi There, My friend you may have gotten a faulty phone, and i'm quite positive that u did...The phone may have suffered some water damaged and it was not listed by the seller. Maybe u could send the seller back a nice message. Hope this helps. Sam !

My pin is blocked and I wuld like to unlock it please. My mom is in Montego Bay and I am in Westmoreland without the pin or puk code so please can u help...

First look on the package which your sim card came in . your puk code and default pin should be stated clearly on the card.

or else you need to call your service provider from a sim which is from the same provider.It will be a Toll free number,thus you will not be charged.Explain the assistant that you need your puk code.They will be asking your phone number and will provide you the puk code.

once you have your puk will be able to reset your pin code.

note:if you have any clarification please let me know.

regards & thanks

Bought nokia n95 phone without sim card in ,but now i,ve put sim card in phone shows good signal but won;t let me phone out

  • PUK means "personal unlocking key" .
    The PUK code is asked if you enter a wrong pin 3 times.
    You need to call your phone service company, they can retrieve the puk code from a database
    for free.
    In your case you need to contact your SIM card phone provider technical support to unlock the SIM.
    The PIN and PUK are related to the SIM card, not to the phone.
    If you replace the SIM card with a different one, then the phone should not ask for the PUK anymore.
    Your rating is highly appreciated on this matter.

My Razr V3xx won't turn on

I've had two RAZR phones die in the same way. The first time I went into Cingular to see if they could fix it and they told me it was a goner. It was replaced under warranty. I had one die that way a week ago as well, and got that replaced. The first time, I lost every number and address I had in it. This time I had it all saved to the SIM card so I could upload it to the new one. Sad fact is, that phone is most likely done for and the numbers are lost.

I forgot my lock code

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 keyed (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 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.

Hello, are you putting another t-mobile sim card into the device? If not, and you are trying to put another carriers sim card, the phone needs to be unlocked. If it is a t-mob sim, you either put a user lock on the razr, which means u gotta flash it to fix it, or you have a sim lock, which you would have to call tmobile to change you sim pin
