Ive blocked my phone now it asking for a unblocking puk code for a samsung taco
Hi if your phone is asking for the PUK code then what this means is its not a security code for the phone its the security code for the sim card, to solve this problem you have a couple of options.
if you need to use the sim card that is asking for the PUK code then all you need to do is call your service provider and tell them you need the PUK code they will then ask you for either the phone number for that sim card or they will ask for the number written on the sim card itself, they wont charge for giving you this code and will give it you over the phone. the code is between 8 and 12 digits long so dint try guessing as you only get 10 chances then the sim is blocked and can no longer be used.
so give your service provider a call and they will give you the PUK code for free over the phone.
now the other option you have is this, if you dont need to use that sim card that is asking for the PUK code then all you need to do is get a new sim card that is accepted by the phone if your phone takes any network then use any network you prefer to use if its locked to one network then you need to get a sim card the same as the network your phone accepts such as the one asking for the PUK code, when you get a new sim card you are given the PUK code written on the card the sim card is stuck to, so getting a new sim card will also solve your problem.
its up to you what you do but both ways will solve your problem, the cheapest would be to give your service provider a call and unlock the sim thats asking for the code.
Most network providers give sim cards away so if you want to get a new sim card have a look around and see if you can get one for free.
let me know how you get on ok
