Re: my sanyo 3100 wont find service

What they are telling you to do is, reprogram your phone, to do this they have given you the SPC code. Dial ##726100# and a menu should appear, the select edit, enter your ten digit wireless number, press ok, then enter it again and press ok, select save and or exit/reset to complete the process. Your phone should power cycle, thus after a restart the unit should no longer read [Service Required] on the other hand if that does not work for you please reply to this suggestion and request my email address and I will arrange with you to have your unit repaired as I repair Sanyo phones myself. Good luck!

PUK is locked. What is this and how do I unlock

PUK stands for PIN Unlock Key and is used in GSM mobile phones.
The PUK is a SIM-specific code assigned by the telecom service provider. It is impossible to guess and enter it; thus, in order to obtain the PUK code, it's required to contact the Telecom Provider.

Sounds like liquid damage, may be able to dry for phone and with the battery removed clean the contacts in the charging/data connector with 99.9% rubbing alcohol and a tooth brush, keep away from the baby, dry out in gentle warm moving air for a while and hope for the best. Good Luck!
