Hi there,

It would appear that you have entered the sim pin code incorrectly 3 times so it has locked.


To unblock your sim card there are 2 ways, Enter the PUK code. The PUK code would be located on the plastic card in which you took your sim card off, If you no longer have this however, Best option is to call your service provider and they are able to provide you with your PUK code.


Thanks.

Doesn't show contact of sim card of samsung galaxy GT-s5570 can u give me format code of samsung GT-s5570


Hi,

I'm Ben and -- hopefully -- I can provide some meaningful

assistance.

It seems that your SIM card is locked.

SIM CARD:

If you enter a wrong PIN code too many times, usually three,

your SIM will lock itself. This protects you from someone using

your personal information or making calls if your cell phone is

lost or stolen. You may see "PIN blocked" or Enter PUK code" on

your cell phone display. The PUK code stands for PIN Unblocking

Key. In the U.S., the PUK code is rarely provided when you get

your subscription.

If you do not have your PUK code, contact the Customer Care

customer again. Give them your phone number and once they

are sure it is really you, they will give you the PUK code.
You will then be asked to set a new PIN code. Once you have

your PUK be sure to keep it in a safe place.

Note that if you enter a wrong PUK 10 times in a row, the SIM

will be permanently blocked, and you'll need to purchase a new

SIM card.

What to do when iphone doesn't turn on


If it won't turn on. Meaning it doesn't turn on turn on. The phone is dead and gone.
If the phone turns on but sticks at the apple logo, that means it needs a restore/update.
If the phone turns on and stick at the usb/apple logos. That means it needs to be restored.

To restore or update. You need to use itunes. If the phone is bricked and dead, dead... Then you need to get a new phone

I got my sim blocked unfortunately,,i don't even


Once you have exceeded the maximum number of passcode attempts, the SIM will become locked and won't allow further attempts.

When that happens you must obtain a PUK code (Personal Unblocking Key). This can only be supplied by the network provider to the registered subscriber.

If the SIM is a prepay credit SIM which has never been registered with the network provider, then the PUK code cannot be provided and the SIM card is useless. All data on it such as the phone number, pre-paid credit and any contacts stored on it will be lost.

The telephone number of the SIM card is not necessary in order to generate a PUK code, but the SIM card serial number will be, and it is always printed on the SIM card.

My PIN is blocked because someone tried to change my sim and she doesn't know my code.Then now,it says that I should enter my PUK code.But I don't know my PUK code because I don't have the card...


PUK stands for Personal Unblocking Key. This is a uniqueeight-digit code specific to your SIM card. This is required when the PIN numberto unlock your mobile phone is entered incorrectly 3 times. You are then given10 attempts to enter your PUK code. If an incorrect PUK code is entered afterthe 10th attempt, you will block your SIM card permanently and will require anew 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 themyour account details and they have confirmed your identity.

Nokia navigator was blocked because of suspecting it stolen. It has been found and need to unlock in South Africa


If the cell phone was lost or a stolen phone and the cell phone provider was given the IMEInumber of this phone, and the cell phone provider has put the serial number (IMEI) on a shareddatabase. This database stops this particular phone from registering on any networkand will be useless for anyone even if the mobile phone's SIM cardis changed.
