Wilkos - take the phone and have the firmware reflash on the phone or do it online at

boutyee - it is best to take the phone and purchase a new even reflashing the firmware wil not correct this issue.

I have just found my mobile phone LGCE0168 after losing it 6 months ago. How can I restart the Tesco PAYG sim card

I am wondering if you have tried another sim card in your newly found phone?

In theory there should be no problems just put your sim back in and make calls.

I am wondering If Tesco have changed service provider in the last 6 months? If they have it could explain your problem.
Asda mobile changed provider about a year ago from Vodafone to EE and my phone stopped working because it wasn't an unlocked phone. As it turned out I had to replace my phone for one that was unlocked because it wasn't worth the expense and trouble of having the old one unlocked. The old one still works fine on Vodafone and O2.

Just a thought. Another thought is perhaps it developed a fault while it was lost or maybe someone has been fiddling with it in that time.

There are lots of aftermarket phone shops around with specialists to give advice. The Tesco helpline might be able to help.

Good luck!

I have had my Envy2 phone for about 3 months,

this is a common problem with all of the lg phones it seems. i contacted verizon about it and they gave me a new phone, worked for 2 weeks then started shutting off again. the only thing to do about this is to complain until they give you a choice of a different model or just dont buy lg next time...

Please read ALL of the instructions below before you start.See the "Note:If nothing happens." below.


Nokia 1600
IMEI# number

Did you check with IMEI: *#06# ,Firmware Version: *#0000# .


Is this correct?

If you know the risks, try this ONCE and ONLY ONCE and let us know if it works. You have only 3 to 5 tries and then it will be hard locked. After that you will need a cable thing-a-me-jiggy to unlock it. It will still work on your Network so no big loss.


Remove sim first,power on the phone.
After the phone boots up, press #
Press * 3 times fast for (p) \
Press * 4 times fast for (w) IMPORTANT
Press * 2 times fast for (+) /
and the rest of the code---

Verify code before pressing the last #.
Pay attention. You only heve about two seconds.

Note:If nothing happens. Some Phones require that you to insert a non accepted sim. Before you do this, make sure the sim you use does NOT have a security PIN CODE. If it does, reset the security code to default 12345 with the original phone. Insert a non accepted SIM and turn it on. You will see "phone restricted", select the UNDO option,then enter the code in the restriction box and press ENTER.

Keypad freeze

Did the key pad froze before you took the battery off? If so, it mean the keypad is damaged. If you have insurance, you may call customer service and have it replaced for a new one.

If it frozed after you shoot it off, you might call customer service from another phone and they might help you to unlock your phone.
