I need the puk code


PUK code is a SIM specific code assigned by your service provider so call Customer care and state the problem then they will ask for some codes written on you SIM card. Few people use PIN locking system to lock their phone to avoid un-authorised access. Though this is a good option, it ****** you off sometime. Three wrong entry of PIN code will result in SIM blocking. Once SIM gets blocked, phone starts asking PUK code to enter. If you again enter wrong code for three times, SIM gets completely blocked. You have to walk into your service provider outlet to get a replacement SIM card.
I think it may help you.

Best Regards

PUK code is a SIM specific code assigned by your service provider. No way you can guess & enter it. So, when it asks for the PUK code, don't do anything, get the PUK code from your service provider(Of which company your sim is).
Just call cutomer care and ask your pin. He will ask you the name of sim holder and sim no printed over the sim, be ready with this data before calling cutomer care.

I need to get puk code,, my phone is locked


This problem is very common and most users think that it's related to phone, which is not true, this is only with your sim card and is for security reason. We can't use software or hardware or other tricks or methods to unlock it, the only solution is from the Service Operator/Network Operator.
If you keep entering random codes/unknown numbers several times, your sim card will be rejected and will not be usable anymore.

Your only solution is to call the service provider (Network operator's customer care), ask them to give you your puk code, they'll promptly give it to you after few inquiries to make sure you are the true owner of the sim card. (there's no fee as well, and if you call from the same network' sim card to the customer care, you'll not spend/pay a penny).

There's no other alternatives, or no other options that you can get the code, so don't play around, rather make a call to the customer care of the sim card network operator and get the code.

I wish you good luck.

How do i unlock my sim card to use it in a new


Mobile phone manufacturers make GSM phones with a SIM lock, a built-in capability to restrict the use of these phones to specific countries and network providers. In this way, phones can be locked to only accept SIM cards from a specific country, network or service provider, or only a particular SIM type. In fact, most mobile phones are shipped with country and network provider locks these days. Unlock SIM card. It is now either mandatory or voluntary for the provider to unlock the SIM card of the customer. Still, some providers are reluctant on doing it even after a customer has fulfilled their service contract. A few others will unlock the SIM card of a customer only if he/she has an active account in good standing for at least 90 days. Some network providers charge a fee for releasing the unlock code. Unlocking laws vary from country to country. For example, in Belgium, networks are not allowed to sell locked handsets. In The Netherlands, providers must provide unlocking codes, but are permitted to charge a fee for this during the first 12 months after purchase. The Hong Kong government does not allow networks to sell locked mobile phones, though the restriction does not apply to some PDA phone models, such as those offered by BlackBerry. In the US, unlocking is now legal. Unlock SIM card and special codes. You can unlock a handset by entering a special code, or in some cases, over-the-air by the carrier. In most cases, a locked phone will display a message if a restricted SIM is used, asking for the unlock code. The code needed for removing all SIM locks from a phone is called the master code or network code key. The phone itself verifies the unlock code, which is either stored in a database or calculated with the help of a complex mathematical formula supplied by the provider.

I just got a motorola c168i and i put my sim card in and it is saying network pin. How can i obtain that?


Just contact your network provider(sim card customer care departmnet) and ask for the PIN. They will provide it for you. Ask both the present sim company if it did not unlock try finding out the previous sim card used in the phone and contact that customer care department.

When ever i put my sim in my phone it says limited service i cant make or receive calls i have E900


Hi,

Either of this 3 could be the problem on your phone;

It could be your cellphone signal was weak and a possible that there was problem transmiting and receiving network signals.
Can be your sim card was broke or its's been blocked by network, better test the phone with another sim.
Your sim has no access to the network you trying to use. phone may be sim lock and can only use only the provided to use.

Hope this helps

Need samsung g600 unlocking code


I have just tried it with my new locked to orange g600 and it works fine on all networks.

1-Turn on the phone without sim card .
2-Pull off the battery cover and insert any non-accepted sim card (without turning off the handset)
3-Do full reset *2767*3855# , phone will reboot and goes to Menu .
4-Customize Sp-lock code *7465625*638*00000000*00000000#
5-Unlock your phone with new SP code #7465625*638*00000000#
6-Enjoy G600 unlocked

if it doesn't work after step 3.. try changing the 'non-accepted' sim card that ur putting in..
eg if you are locked to vodafone and you try this method and use an orange sim card and it doesn't work, try using a o2 sim or even virgin :)
its easy good luck
