I have not used the phone in many years. How do I find out what the Phone number is

Some phones have the ability to show you the number. Some require that the number is entered.

It's a good idea if you get a new SIM to make an entry A name of provider and a service number of the provider to the SIM. e.g. the first entry in my phone book is A *****. That way when I boot up the phone and press names/search/search the first entry will be that name. Of course you have to wait for the SIM to "warm" up before it can be used.

As you evaluate my and suggestions, there are a few things you must keep in mind:

• I did not diagnose your problem and am therefore only able to evaluate what you tell me. For example, if you ask me a fuse location, that doesn't mean that I can tell you the reason why the fuse blew. Keep in mind that I'm limited in my analysis to what you tell me.
• A thorough diagnostic approach involves the use of technical equipment, such as voltage meters. scanning equipment and other sophisticated devices.
• Lastly, fixing one problem can very easily reveal a problem with something that you might consider unrelated. If that happens, you might want to view me as being incompetent.

Subject: How to unlock a SIM card

Customer's exact description: need puk code

Discussion: Problems of this type can be easily. Customer did not provide details on name of phone, phone model or name of carrier

Solution: Provide generic instructions.

PUK Codes

A PUK (PIN Unlock Key) code is required to unlock SIM cards that have become locked following three successive incorrect PIN entries. If your SIM card becomes locked, you will need to get a PUK code from AT&T to unlock your SIM card.

Since I don't know the name of you carrier, I'm using AT&T as an example. Most carriers use the same methodology though the wording may be different.

PUK Codes

A PUK (PIN Unlock Key) code is required to unlock SIM cards that have become locked following three successive incorrect PIN entries. If your SIM card becomes locked, you will need to get a PUK code from your carrier to unlock your SIM card.

Since I don't know the name of you carrier, I'm using AT&T as an example. Most carriers use the same methodology though the wording may be different.

You can obtain your phone's PUK code from AT&T in one of these ways:

Take the phone into your carrier's retail outlet.


• Log in to myAT&T online
• Use our Technical Support Chat.
• Contact Customer Care

To get your phone's PUK code online:

? Log in to myAT&T.
? From the myAT&T tab at the top of the page, hover over the Wireless link and select Phone/Device under the My Wireless Service heading.
? From the My Phone/Device screen, select the Unblock SIM Card link under the My Make & Model heading.
? The Unblock SIM screen will display your PUK code and will give you instructions for unblocking your SIM Card.

Once you receive your PUK code, you will need to enter it into your phone to set a new PIN code.

Note: If you enter the wrong PUK code 10 times in a row, your SIM card will be invalidated, and you will need to purchase a new SIM Card. The phone will display the following error: "PUK blocked call operator."

You can also do it without any assistance from anyone. However, be sure to read the following carefully because there are pitfalls. If you want to try to do it yourself, just click on the following link:

All the best,

Well i went on my phone and typed in my pin then it came up with puk and i have no idea what a puk is or what the code is please help x

Few people use PIN locking system to lock their phone to avoid un-authorised access. Though this is a good option. Three wrong entry of PIN code will result in SIM blocking. Once SIM gets blocked, phone starts asking PUK code to enter. If you again enter wrong code for three times, SIM gets completely blocked. You have to walk into your service provider outlet to get a replacement SIM card.

PUK code is a SIM specific code assigned by your service provider. No way you can guess & enter it. So, when it asks for the PUK code, don't do anything, get the PUK code from your service provider(Of which company your sim is).
Just call cutomer care and ask your pin. He will ask you the name of sim holder and sim no printed over the sim, be ready with this data before calling cutomer care.

How do i copy all my contacts to my sim card?

Go to your contacts management in your phone . Hope this helps!

Contacts Management
Menu 8.5
This menu allows you to copy all of the
information from your SIM card, e.g. name,
handset number, etc. to your handset. If
a name is duplicated during the copying
operation, the information is also duplicated.
You can copy the entry from the SIM card to
the phone memory. You can copy the entry
from the handset memory to the SIM card (not
all the data will be copied).
You can delete all entries in the SIM card
or the Handset. Press the [END] key to
return to standby mode.

good luck!

If you have phone numbers stored on the SIM card, copy them to Contacts. Entries that are saved ONLY on the SIM card are not shown in the contacts directory. So for incoming calls and msgs, the phone cannot match the number to the name.
To copy individual names and numbers from a SIM card to your phone contacts:
Menu/Contacts/Options/SIM contacts/Sim directory. Select the names you want to copy and: Options/Copy to contacts.

Nokia 6233

The problem is most likely because on your previous phone the names and numbers were stored on the phone memory and the sim card memory. Before removing your sim card from the old phone, you first need to copy all names and numbers from the phone memory to the sim memory and then when you transfer the sim card to the new phone you should have all the names and numbers as before. Just beware of a few potential problems. First, sim memory only generally allows entries of 14 characters and secondly there is often a limit to the overall capacity of names/numbers to 250 or maybe 300. So if you have a huge directory, you will in effect need to copy the data in blocks of say 250 entries from one phone memory to the other using the sim card as a portable memory device or else try a phone shop like Carphone Warehouse who might just do the whole job for you.
