I'll need some more information, such as what model of samsung phone you have, what carrier, is the phone locked?

However a general reason for this kind of problem is that the sim card is either not activated or isn't being recognized by the phone due to a bad/broken sim reader.
I would recommend bringing it to a repair shop near by or call your carrier (from another phone ofcourse) and ask them to fix it(if it's under warranty).

Other than that if it worked before and just randomly stopped, I would check for water damage inside the phone if you're comfortable opening it.

If you bought the phone under a year a ago, I would say send it to warranty, but that will take an average of 2 weeks. Bringing it to a repair store will take a week or less depending on the store.

If you know what model/carrier/lock statues your phone is, post back because it might just be incompatible with what you're trying to use it on(carrier wise).

SOURCE: my xperia 10 is puk

Hi the PUK code is the security code for the sim card and not any code to do with the phone, all you need to do to get the PUK code is call your service provider.
your service provider wont charge for giving you the code as the code belongs to you, all you need to tell them is your phone number or if you dont know that then the number printed on the sim card, they will then provide you with the 10digit PUK code for free over the phone.
this will then allow you to access the sim card.

The only place you can get the PUK code from is your service provider as their is no where else that keeps these codes, if you still have the card the sim card was attatched to then it will be written on their but if you no longer have this then the only way your going to get the code is by calling your service provider, they wont charge you for this as the code belongs to you,

you do have another option open to you though, if you dont need that sim card then you can go out and get another sim card and when you get given a new sim card you will get given the unique PUK code it will be written on the card the sim card is attatched to.

let me know if you need further assistance ok.

plz rate this solution as i have a whole page of unrated posts, thanks,.,.,.,.

My phone has the dial pad superimposed over the home screen and will not let me make calls except emergency calls. I can't access anything. How can I get this off.


This one is a call for your provider as to how to turn it off. It is locked in a feature that allows you to dial emergency but nothing else. Usually bill related.

What does ice mean and how do you use 911


Adding ICE ("In Case of Emergency") to your phone is a clever means by which emergency personnel can locate your next of kin when something goes wrong. This simple idea was developed by a British paramedic, Bob Brotchie, who recognized the need for speed when emergency personnel are trying to locate next of kin during disaster situations. Here is the simple way to keep your loved ones informed. 1.Open your cell phone's address book.
2. Program ICE - "In Case of Emergency" - with the name of your emergency contact into your speed dial. For example:
  • - ICE Bob
  • - ICE Mom
  • - ICE Mrs Crabby
  • 3. Let other family members and friends know. Alert family members that you have done this and encourage them to do so as well. This will help speed up responses from emergency personnel when they have to decide who to call in case of your injury.
  • To call 911, you dial 911 on your phone

Emergency calls


Hi Ivan
Please see the following extract from Wikipedia re: your query.
From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia


112 (emergency telephone number) 112 is the common emergency telephone number that can be dialed free of charge from any fixed or mobile telephone in order to reach emergency services (ambulance, fire and rescue, police) in numerous European Countries, including all member states of the European Union, as well as several other countries in the world. In some countries other numbers previously used also continue to be available; e.g. 999 and 112 both function in the UK. In the United States, some carriers, including AT&T, will map the number 112 to its emergency number 9-1-1.

I just replaced my cell phone & my old sim card, my phone try's to dial 911


Instructions
1 Pay off your phone bill. Some cell phone companies allow your phone to only reach emergency services if you have oustanding charges. Pay your cell phone bill, or add money to your prepaid account, to prevent your phone from just making emergency calls.

2 Cancel your emergency plan. Cell phone companies provide this feature free, especially to those who are 50 years or older. If you do not need the plan, then cancel it to prevent making accidental emergency calls.

3 Stay within your roaming area. If you travel out of your area, some cell phones and providers (e.g., BlackBerry, iPhone and AT&T) will only allow you to make emergency, or 911, calls.

4 Click "OK" and "Contacts." Navigate to "Emergency Contacts," or a selection with similar wording. Select "Disable." This prevents you from making accidental calls to 911.

What is fixed dailing number


If you turn on fixed dialing, you can only make calls to contacts that appear in your fixed dialing list.
You can make an emergency call when fixed dialing is turned on, even if the emergency number does not appear in your fixed dialing list.
If your wireless service plan includes SMS text messaging, you can also send SMS text messages to contacts that appear in your fixed dialing list.

My wing WT8120D5 phone when i call safaricom customer care number 100,it dials police station what is the problem&how is it set,


Your device has a saved list of important call numbers. The device has been provided auto dial precedence. Reseting the auto or fast dial would prevent dialing soon after pressing talk or call on the phone. Also, your phone subscriber provides the means of last resort to emergency numbers. For example, you may be out of service, however, your phone despite calling anyhwhere provides free emergency contact inspite of not asking for such. Contact the the phoneprovide for alterations.
