Sounds like your phone is restricted to Vodafone. Each network generally puts a lock in the software to stop other network sims being used in it. If you know your phone is unlocked (sim free) then it could be that you have not activated your Orange sim card? Check the instructions that came with your Orange sim as i am sure that you need to call Orange to activate it? Hope that helps?

Orange Sim Card, PUK code needed...


Hi,
As ginko correctly said above, The PUK is exclusive to your sim card, not your actual phone.
Easiest option is to obtain the PUK from Orange customer services. Call 450 from anothe Orange handset, or 07973 100450 from a landline.
Make a note of your PUK when you get it, because it will always remain the same (for that sim card)

Tip

Default Pin & Security Codes for SIM cards


A number of networks still use a default pin on their SIM cards at the point of dispatch as a security precaution. If you lose or forget the PIN code it can be irritating.

Please note these PIN's will only work if you have NOT changed the default PIN. If you enter the PIN code incorrectly three times, a lock will be put onto the SIM card, and you need a PUK code to unlock it.

You can obtain your PUK by contacting your network service provider.

Default Network PIN Codes:

O2 = 0000/4321

Orange = 1111

Vodafone = 0000

Fresh = 1210

Virgin Mobile = 7890 / 1210

Vodafone = 0000

Talkmobile = 0000

3 = 0000

Lg kf700 wont accept any sim cards,


Hi,

it sounds weird that it worked before with same sim card. Generally USIM locked message means phone is locked to network and you need to unlock it with network unlock code to remove USIM locked and use phone on different network.

Need a puk code for a i930


The Puk number depends on the pin lock on the sim, the phone will still work with a different Sim card.

To unlock the Puk code you need to call the contact number for the service provider for your Sim. Alternatively you can unlock the PUK code at a local shop for a small fee, £10 or £20 in UK.

To unlock PUK, call the company that branded your Sim card.

For example , f you are in UK, and have lost vodafone or Orange pin, and puk code kicked in, then contact is below.


Vodafone Contact us

Vodafone UK - Contact us

use google to find contact number for your sim card fone company in your area. That is the only way to unlock PUK for free, and it always work.
