Re: SIM is locked

You can have motorola or find another company that will unlock the sim feature for a small fee. you can find them for as cheap as $3.00

How can i connect it with a mobile phone in order to make phone call in places where their is no phone network

Some network service providers offer emergency call service via satellite. This is very costly and also it depends whether they have the service or not. You may ask your operator.

For any network unlocking (so that you can use it globally with any sim) help you may visit:

Need code & steps to unblock puc code on cell phone

You need to phone your cell phone service provider for the PUK code. This is because it's the SIM card that locks rather than the phone and the service provider is the only one who can give you the PUK.

Once you've received the PUK you simply try to turn on the cell phone. When it says sim locked you enter the PUK code. This will clear the previous PIN number and you'll be asked to enter the new PIN.

Keep the PUK code safe as it can be used again anytime your phone gets locked.

I have a gt350i and it is asking for a 'puk code' whats a puk code?

PUK stands for Personal Unblocking Key, and it's a code that's associated with a mobile phone SIM card. This could have happened because either you have entered the SIM card's PIN incorrectly three times or your network operator has locked your SIM Card. You would need to contact your network operator so they can unlock the SIM for you.

NOTE: Only your mobile phone network operator can legally provide you with a PUK code to unlock your SIM card.

Good Luck!

When trying to go to the any live service on the go 750 live machine it shows a message something like 'sim card problem, contact tomtom customer support' but there they cant't help you either it's a...

I had a similar issue, I just used an old PAYG SIM and swapped it to fix the problem. The cover is held on by 4 screws, once open the old SIM card pulls-out without any further dismantling. You still need to subscribe to get live services though.

Tom Tom sim card error


You need to replace the SIM card located on a slot at the side of your GPS.

Before replacing the SIM try turning off the TomTom, removing and reinserting the SIM.

The card can be purchased at any TomTom authorized seller, or contacting TomTom online.

ahh the notorious "sim not read" error message
well what you have is a is a faulty contact issue from the phones brass 8 or 10 pin points to the sim card pin contacts inside the phone itself and also too, your service provider has without your knowing it, from time to time have uploaded numerous software data updates to your phone, and often old sim cards, if not replaced occasionally, your sim card has a compatibility issue to the new data being sent to your phone. You basically need a new sim card. Usually and often if the phones has suffered a lot of abuse (from physically dropping to the ground and natural elements like tempertature, rain, exposure to cold and moisture, which is a big culpret) those brass contacts,located inside the phone, that are on the edge of the sim card (when you turn the sim over you see them) get particules in between the contacts causing the notorious "sim not read" or even the notorious " sim not found please insert sim".
