SOURCE: tocco lite phone freeze deactivate fail

here is some info on PUK codes:

try taking battery and SIM out waiting 15 seconds and powering cell back on.

In your case I believe your SIM is now FROZEN or locked. You mostlikely will need to purchase a new SIM card.

A PUK code (Pin Unlock Key) is required when you enter an incorrect PIN 3 times. After entering the wrong PIN 3 times, the card will be locked and you will need to get a PUK code from your service provider to unlock it.

If the wrong PUK code is entered ten times in a row, the SIM card becomes invalid and you will need to purchase a new SIM Card. The phone will display "PUK blocked call operator".

Too many pattern attempts


That will put the phone in protect mode, try taking the battery out, but don't turn it off. The company where the phone was purchased should be able to reset the unit so you can put a new lock pattern on it or you might try a different way of locking it. If its asking for a PKU code the company is the only one that can tell you the code or the phones manual that came with it. Each one is different.

Pantech p7040 pku code


PUK stands for Personal Unblocking Key. This is a unique eight-digit code specific to your SIM card. This is required when the PIN number to unlock your mobile phone is entered incorrectly 3 times. You are then given 10 attempts to enter your PUK code. If an incorrect PUK code is entered after the 10th attempt, you will block your SIM card permanently and will require a new SIM card from your mobile phone provider.
PUK codes can be obtained through the following ways - The PUK code is in your SIM card documentation Starter Pack. If you do not have this then - Please contact your phone service provider.
Your cell phone service provider can give you the PUK code once you give them your account details and they have confirmed your identity. For details to obtain the PUK code for the SIM card, please click on this link and follow my instructions.

Hi, what is a PKU-1.


There is no such thing as a PKU-1 on a blackberry, or any, smartphone.
What I think you mean is PUK. A PUK code is the code that locks/unlocks your sim card. Your phone may lock up your sim card if the wrong security code is entered a number of times, and this results in you needing to phone your carrier and ask for your PUK code, which is provided for free.

I cant remember my security code for nokia 1100 the IMEI is 35759300/455100/1 please help me ma email add is m1_azzam@hotmail.com


Try entering the codes 1234 or 12345. You have about 3 tries before the phone will lock. If you lock yourself out of your phone with too many password failed attempts, remove the batter over night and replace the next day.

If this does not help you can contact your cell provider and they should be able to remotely unlock the phone.
