I have hardly ever used this phone since i use my other one mainly. I decided that i would switch phones, and so i charged this one, and put the sim card in after it was done, turned it on and it read "enter sim card". I tried taking the sim card out and putting it back in, and i tried turning the phone off and back on, but it always reads the same thing....any suggestions?

I need puk code for my HTC metropcs


It can only come from one place.. Have a read

Your phone is asking for a PUK code?
Is your phone asking for a PUK code. PUK = Personal Unlocking Key. Personal Unblocking Key, or PIN Unblocking Key.

This can only come from your cellphone carrier and usually the company that still owns the phone under the agreement. Sometimes it is because you have put another SIM card in it, and they own the phone and need you to use them as carrier to get the price of the phone back, or you are in default of payment, or on a Pay as You Go plan, it is over expired. I can also happen if you have entered the unlock code wrongly three times. This often happens when a phone is stolen or lost and has been found by or sold to someone else who then try and use the phone.
Wikipedia
A personal unblocking code (PUC), also known as a PIN unlock key (PUK), is used in 3GPP mobile phones to reset a personal identification number (PIN) that has been lost or forgotten.
Most mobile telephones offer the feature of PIN protection. After switching on the phone, if the PIN security function is active, the user is requested to enter a 4-8 digit PIN enabling the phone's non-emergency calling functions. If the wrong PIN is typed in more than three times, either the SIM card, the device, or both become locked. They can be returned to their original unlocked state by entering a PUC, provided by the service operator after verification. If the wrong PUC is entered ten times in a row, the device will become permanently blocked and unrecoverable, requiring a new SIM card. Cellular phone users are therefore advised by most providers to keep their PUC written down in a safe place separate from the device.
The PUC (PUK) is a SIM-specific code assigned and provided by the service provider.
Once you enter the PUK code, you must set a PIN. The PUK and PUK2 are used to unlock the PIN and PIN2 codes respectively if your SIM card is blocked
From Bell
The PIN unblocking key (PUK; sometimes called personal unlocking key) is a master security code for unblocking and resetting the personal identification number (PIN) for your SIM card. For added security, the PUK is unique to your SIM card.
If your PIN code is active and you enter it incorrectly three times, your SIM card will be blocked. You won't be able to use your phone, except for emergency calls. You must enter your PUK into your phone to unblock the SIM card.
If your SIM card becomes blocked, Contact us to get your PUK. You may be able to do it from the website or your cellular provider. This is from Orange - T-Mobile in the UK.

Your phone can become blocked in a number of ways - one of them is if you enter your SIM card PIN number incorrectly three times in a row.
To unblock your SIM card, you will need to use something called a PUK (Personal Unblocking Key).
Remember that unblocking is different to unlocking. Read more information on unlocking your device.

PUK code problem


PUK code means Personal Unblocking Key. It is used to verify if the person trying to access a sim is the real owner of the sim card. It is mainly a way to protect a sim card from being used wrongly by a person that does not own the sim. If a wrong code is entered three (3) times on a phone, then the sim gets automatically blocked and begin to request for the PUK code.

The PUK code is mainly found on the starter kit where the sim was taken out from. When you bought your sim card, it came in a pack, on the pack there is a card that looks like a credit card, where the sim card is originally attached.

On the card, there are some codes on it, like the mobile number along side the sim pin number and a 8 digit PUK code. That is the code that is required on the phone.

Once you enter it, the phone will ask for a new pin code for the sim, then you enter it, it will ask you to re enter the pin code, then the sim will be unblocked.

But if you do not have the Pack any more, please do not panic, all you need to do is to contact the customer care or help center of the sim service provider and ask them for the code, they will give it to you after asking some simple security questions about the sim card.

Hope this was helpful to you.

Is it after a PUK code, or have you just forgotten your own code, the one you use multiple times a day to unlock? PUK codes dealt with below. If the latter, you have to reset the phone back to factory state.

Unblocking sim card


Hello,

The step to take is for you to enter the PUK number of the simcard so it will enable you to get ***** to your sim card,Firstly PUK means, personal unblocking key. It is simple to get it off the phone. The PUK can be found mostly in the pack where you took out the sim card of the phone from. You will see some codes on the pack of the sim, there you will also see the PUK code, enter it and it will ask you to enter a new security code. Then you enter it and the sim will be unlocked.

PUK mainly blocks the sim card from working on the phone. you can use a new sim card on the phone and it will work perfectly fine.

If you do not have the sim pack, you can contact the customer care or help center of the sim card and they will give you the PUK code. try that with another phone.
