SOURCE: samsung e-250 i need unlock code

Please follow the instructions carefully! Following are the 12-point instructions to unlock your Samsung E250 phone:
1. First do a CUSTOM RESET by tying in:
*2767*2878#
(Phone may display foreign language – don't worry! The last digits after the * will appear as - - - -; this is normal)
2. Turn off your phone
3. Take the battery and SIM out of the phone
4. Take a wrong network SIM (a SIM the phone does not currently accept) and insert it ONLY HALF way in, so when you turn on the phone it won't detect the SIM. Very important so the phone won't ask for network password and will show "Insert SIM" message.
The process of inserting only half of the SIM. I advice you to take care and do it with a soft approach as you might not have done this before.

5. 2. Now put the battery in carfully behind the protruding SIM card and switch the phone on. The phone must show "Insert SIM" message.
6. 3. Without turning off the phone, now push the SIM card all the way in, at this stage the phone must continue to display the "Insert SIM" message with the WRONG SIM inside.
7. Now make a FULL RESET by typing: *2767*3855#

9. Change the NCK password to 8 zeros by typing: *7465625*638*00000000*00000000#
8. The phone should reboot working with "wrong" SIM inside. (Do not turn off the phone)
10. Disable network lock by typing: #7465625*638*00000000#
12. Check this is done with *#7465625#
If your phone is not unlocked please retry the above ensuring all steps are followed to the letter, 9 out of 10 people who have problems have made a simple error and find that when they repeat all the steps it works.

How do I unlock my phone when its on puk code and I don't have the password?


Mobile PUK codes - how do I find my PUK code?
If you have a PIN number on your SIM card as an extra security measure, you'll need to type the PIN number in each time you turn on your phone. If you do this wrong 3 times, the SIM card will be locked and you will be unable to use the phone. In this situation, you will need your PUK code to unlock the SIM.
WHAT IS A PUK CODE?
These codes have been around quite a long time actually and PUK stands for 'PIN Unlock Key'. It's a unique code that is linked to your specific SIM card and is usually 8 digits long. Some phones may ask for a PUC code instead. This stands for 'PIN Unlock Code' and is exactly the same thing as a PUK Code.

WHERE DO I FIND MY PUK CODE?
The PUK code is unique to your SIM card, so you can only get this from your mobile network. Sometimes they will give you this when you first get the SIM card, but not all networks do this. If you cannot find it, give your mobile network a call and they will be able to give you the PUK code after you have answered some security questions.
To make things a bit easier for you, here are the contact details for the major networks:

WHAT DO I DO WITH THE PUK CODE?
Once you have got the PUK code from your network, you will need to enter it into your phone. A notification will usually pop up, prompting you to enter the PUK code as soon as you turn your mobile on, so just follow the instructions onscreen to proceed.
As soon as your phone is unlocked, you may be asked to enter a new SIM PIN number, but this can be turned off in the settings menu of the phone once it's fully unlocked.
WARNING!
Do not try and guess your PUK code. If you enter it wrong 10 times, the SIM card will be permanently locked and you will need to get a new one from your network provider. There may be a charge for a new SIM card and you might be stuck without your phone for a couple of days while they send it out.

Sim puk code vergine


These directions are for an AT and T phone, but other than that, are the same for any carrier. A PUK (PIN Unlock Key) code is required to unlock SIM cards that have become locked following three successive incorrect PIN entries. If your SIM card becomes locked, you will need to get a PUK code from your phone carrier to unlock your SIM card. You can obtain your phone's PUK code from your carrier in one of these ways: Log in to Your account.online Use a Technical Support Chat Contact your carriers Customer Care Get Your Phone's PUK Code Online Go to the Phone/Device page. From the My Phone/Device screen, select the Unblock SIM Card link under the My Make & Model heading. The Unblock SIM screen will display your PUK code and will give you instructions for unblocking your SIM Card. Once you receive your PUK code, you will need to enter it into your phone to set a new PIN code. Note: If you enter the wrong PUK code 10 times in a row, your SIM card will be invalidated, and you will need to purchase a new SIM Card. The phone will display the following error: "PUK blocked call operator

I have virgin mobile sim card and now asking for puk..help


Puk can be given by your Service provider, It has nothing to do with your phone code or phone lock,Just the Sim card.

You can contact you Sim service department for help by calling. Call is free.You might not be able to contact them through your cell phone ,cause your cell phone is not accessible yet until the Puk code has been removed. You can use afriends phone that uses the same Line of Sim card as yours.

Go to the nearest service outlet of your service provider they can also help you.

The puk code for telephone is the special code that allows you to do a master reset on the telephone. You will also need that number to unlock the telephone after it has been locked.

Make sure you contact your service provider for help. Sim card is fine, just needs to be unlocked.

Hope it helped.

Thanks for using fixya...

My new fone i have put a puk code on it an would like the puk number to un lock it my net work is virgin


Your original SIM card package would have come with the PUK code.

If you cannot find the Provider Unlock Kode, then just ring your mobile provider Help Desk and request the code from them for your SIM card and phone number.

If you manage your mobile online, normally for Virgin Mobile, the PUK code is often available in the User facility pages.

Hope it helps.

I am a user of Reliance CDMA , the SIM has been locked and its asking for the PUK Code.. What is the PUK Code?


A PUK code is a "Pin unlock code" it is used in mobile phones. This code unlocks the SIM card to allow access to your mobile phone. If you enter this code incorrectly several times, then the SIM card will be locked permanently and you will need to purchase another SIM card from your mobile phone provider.
The PUK code is with the documentation that came with your SIM card, if you no longer have the documentation, then you need to contact your phone service provider and ask them for the PUK code.

Puk code


The PUK code is a code associated with the SIM card and not with the phone.

You have only two ways to get rid of the PUK code. Either you replace the SIM card , or you call phone provider that issued the sim cadr (eg. At&T, Virgin, Tmobile , Vodafone, Telecom etc.)

PUK means "personal unlocking key" .

The PUK code is asked if you enter a wrong pin 3 times.

You need to call the phone company that released the SIM card, they can retrieve the PUK code from a database for free.

In your case you need to contact your SIM card provider technical support to unlock the SIM.


The PIN and PUK are related to the SIM card, not to the phone.

If you replace the SIM card with a different one, then the phone will not ask for the PUK anymore.

How do I get a puk code for virgin network Australia


Puleld from Virgin Mobile UK:A PERSONAL UNLOCKING CODE (PUK) WILL GET YOU BACK INTO YOUR PHONE ONCE IT'S LOCKED YOU OUT Locked out? If you've entered your PIN incorrectly 3 times, then unfortunately your phone will be locked.
But hey, it's no problem at all - what you need to get back up and running is a PUK code. That's your phone's Personal Unlocking Code.
How to get your PUK code
Simply visit Your Account and you can pick up your PUK code there.
Need some help with your PUK code?
If you accidentally enter your PUK code 10 times, then you'll need to get a replacement SIM. We can send one out to you - just send us an email or give us a call on 0845 6000 789.

Pulled from Virgin Moble AU:
http://www.virginmobile.com.au/glossary.html


A number code that unlocks your SIM card in case the PIN is incorrectly entered three times. If the PUK is incorrectly entered ten times it permanently disables the SIM card, which will then have to be replaced. Contact us if you need to get your PUK.




I hope this helps!! :)

Puk codes


When you enter a wrong Pin code three times, the phone goes in lock mode, and ask you for the puk code.

The puk code was enclosed with the original sim card documentation.

If you lost it the only ways to recover the PUk code are either paying a phone shop (they will phone virgin), or calling virgin mobile customer service by yourself. They will ask your personal details, and retrieve the PUK code from database.
