PUK code stands for Personal Unlock key and has nothing to do with the box it is a code for your SIM in case you enter wrong PIN three times contact your service provider and ask for your unique PUK code which will be given to you after their enquiry. Do Not enter random nos. till you get your PUK code as it will block your SIM card and you`ll have to buy a new one.
puk code, personal unlocking key. It is sim card related / specific, if
you take the sim card out from the phone, the phone will work with
another sim card.
The puk comes up when the pin code has been
entered wrong 3 times. To get the puk code for your sim card, you have
to call the service provider of that sim card. They are the only ones
who can provide you with the right puk code for that sim card.
The puk code may also have came with the documentation of the sim card, if its a prepaid card the puk code comes on the documents or on the box of the product. if your unable to obtain the puk code, get a new sim card.
also entering the puk
code wrong too many times will eventually ruin the sim card forcing you
to buy or contact your service provider for a new sim card.
just update ur fone firmware OR hard format ur n73... by following method:
(note : b4 u do any of the above solution remove the password of memory card and also take the backup of ur memory card through Nokia pc suite not by using cardreaders....)
hard format :
remove memory card
switch off the fone
now press call key(green) + 3 + * key
keep on pressing all three keys and switch on the fone ... dont release the keys untill the fone boots on....
the fone settings will be restored to its default... also all d security codes of fone will be retored to defaults....
now ur problem is solved .... put ur memory card back.... n if it still asks for memory card unlock password ... then jus format it .....through fone..... it wont ask again.....
well zarshad lets solve ur first issue MEMORY CARD.
so like u told dat uve set a password to protect ur memory card from unauthorised access right?but bro the password set on that is working perfectly fine. it will prompt u the password when u will insert that card into a MEMORY CARD READER SLOT( IN LAPTOPS,DESKTOPS ETC) and IN ANOTHER N73 OR N73ME fone.so dont worry abt the card password. u can access it but not on other device except ur N73ME.
and ur next issue. THE KEYPAD LOCK. LETS GO STEP BY STEP and confirm the same steps that im telling u,u make the changes in ur fone settings ok?so here we go:-
1.Goto ur fone menu and select the SETTINGS icon,where ever its located or where ever u moved it.
2. Select the option that says SECURITY with a lock in front of it.
3. Select the option that says PHONE AND SIM.
4. select the option that says AUTOLOCK PERIOD. By default it would say NONE.
5. When ull select this,it would say NONE and USER DEFINED. So select USER DEFINED.It would Say "Lock after (minutes)". Mention the number like 1 for 1minute or 2 for 2 minutes or whatever time u want ur fone to autolock it self "1 minute" veing the least time. u can't select the time in seconds.
6.Next it would ask u for the code. By default the code is 12345 IF u haven't changed it as per ur wish.IF u've changed 12345 to other number ull have to input that number vich would be a 5 digit number.
VOILA!!!!! uve set ur fone for autolock. and ull have to input that code everytime u want to access ur fone.NOBODY n i meant it NOBODY can access ur fone after this. IVe followed the same steps n ive set up my fone to lock itself in 1 minute.IF U WANT TO LOCK IT MORE EARLY MANUALLY,PRESS THE POWER BUTTON ONCE AND THEN SELECT THE OPTION "LOCK PHONE"
WHEN U SET UP THIS AFTER LOCKING UR FONE A KEYLOCK WOULD APPEAR ON THE SCREEN.
OK?so follow these simple steps n im very sure that ur issue would resolved
all u have to do is while the fone is on take the battery and sim card and or sd memory card out. then put only the battery in and turn the fone back on while holdin down the r botton the fone will then reboot it-self twice then let the r botton go and allow the fone to turn it-self on. the fone will then turn on to the main menu screen and u will not be able to do anything wif the fone till u re-register the fone.
