Hi,

My name is Ben and I'm your guru, i.e., mentor, an influential teacher or popular expert: a management guru. - origin from Sanskrit, 'weighty, grave' for today.

PUK Codes

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 AT&T to unlock your SIM card.

Since I don't know the name of you carrier, I'm using AT&T as an example. Most carriers use the same methodology though the wording may be different.

You can obtain your phone's PUK code from AT&T in one of these ways:

• Log in to myAT&T online
• Use our Technical Support Chat.
• Contact Customer Care


To get your phone's PUK code online:

? Log in to myAT&T.
? From the myAT&T tab at the top of the page, hover over the Wireless link and select Phone/Device under the My Wireless Service heading.
? 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."

You can also do it without any assistance from anyone, However, be sure to read the following carefully because there are pitfalls.

Although most people remember their primary SIM PIN code, those other codes - used for various verification purposes - are never to be found when needed. Below we've included a set of short codes which, when entered on a handset's standby screen, will let you easily change PIN and PUK (short for Pin Unlock Code) codes - but keep in mind, they may not work with all handsets and mobile operators. If you are interested in a software fix, click on the following link: Universal SIM Lock Remover

More importantly, when changing ones PUK codes there'll be no help to get from the mobile operator if the new codes are forgotten, so make sure to write any changes down alongside the old PUK codes. Also, please note that the codes should be entered without the spaces shown below.

Change SIM Card PIN
** 04 * old PIN * new PIN * new PIN #

Change SIM Card PIN 2 (Write down the new code)
** 042 * old PIN * new PIN * new PIN #

Change SIM Card PUK (Write down the new code)
** 05 * old PUK * new PUK * new PUK #

Change SIM Card PUK 2 (Write down the new code)
** 052 * old PUK * new PUK * new PUK #

Display Handset IMEI
*# 06 #

This was wordy but hopefully it helped you.

Unlock a sony ericsson w302 on tesco


Hi, If you get error message as PIN blocked. Unlock?" You have entered the wrong PIN code too many times. You need to unlock your phone using the PUK (PIN Unlocking Key) code. Your PUK code is provided by your network operator. If you get error message as Insert correct SIM" You have inserted a SIM card that is not supported. Insert correct SIM card, or contact your Service Provider for a SIM unlock code. If you get error message as Phone locked" or "Enter PIN" Your phone is locked and you need to unlock it with your personal PIN. The default PIN is '0000', but you or your network operator may have changed it. I Hope it helped you. Thank you for using ' Fixya ' and have a nice day!!

From orange to O2


you could try this

By doing the reset (1st temp) you will lose all your
data ie contacts, messages, photos, videos etc etc so
back them up on your pc first.
Take out your sim card and follow the instructions below :
1st temp. put this number in the keypad
*2767*3855# let it reboot(restart)
now its ready for permanent.
Put in a sim card of a network that the phone won't
except and follow the instructions below.
( If you can't type anything with a locked sim
card inserted just take it out and do the next
step without a sim card in the phone)
Don't worry if your screen shows - - - - - - - when typing
it is supposed to do this.
Permanent.
ENTER :
*7465625*638*00000000*0000000
0#
NEXT ENTER
#7465625*638*00000000#
AND THEN *#7465625# to check the locks....all locks are
inactive...these are all the locks...
network lock - inactive
subset lock - inactive
sp lock - inactive
cp lock - inactive
sim lock - inactive
activa lock - inactive
phone lock - inactive
auto network - inactive
auto subset lock - inactive
auto sp lock - inactive
auto cp lock - inactive
auto sim lock - inactive
Enjoy !

Nokia 6500 slide help i need restriction code


PLEASE READ FULL INSTRUCTIONS BEFORE DOING ANYTHING

TRY WITH NO SIM CARD IN THE PHONE

Doing this is at your own risk!


Every code unlocks a certain lock. Code number 7 usually unlocks them all but some phones are 'buggy' and will not accept code 7 at first then use code 1.

Usually you only have to use code 1 or code 7.

#pw+xxxxxxxxxxxxxxx+1#

1. Press ( # ) on your phone
2. To get ( p ) press ( * ) 3 times within 1sec
3. To get ( w ) press ( * ) 4 times within 1sec
4. To get ( + ) press ( * ) 2 times within1sec
5. Enter the 15 digit code
6. To get ( + ) press ( * ) 2 times within 1sec
7. Enter code number
8. Press ( # ) on your phone

Now your phone is unlocked!

If your phone isn?t unlocked after code 1 or code 7 then you have either entered the wrong IMEI or Network. Sometimes there could also be a problem with newer software versions. Then you can try another 'Boxserial' Remember! You have only five tries to enter the right code. After that you will need a cable to unlock your phone. So please, be aware
Phone type: DCT4
IMEI: 352027025104628
Model: 6500

#pw+319926630701132+1#
#pw+702310427045122+2#
#pw+754840072200550+3#
#pw+093433717136641+4#
#pw+199064315752575+5#
#pw+286305406405613+6#
#pw+307016424512121+7#
There is 4 locks on a Nokia DCT4 phone.
Lock 1: MCC+MNC (Network och landsspecific)
Lock 2: GID1 lås (SIM-card typ)
Lock 3: GID2 lås (SIM-card typ)
Lock 4: MSIN lås (SIM-card specific lock)

The generated codes open up one or several locks.
Code 1 open lock 1
Code 2 open lock 2
Code 3 open lock 3
Code 4 open lock 4
Code 5 open lock 1 and lock 2
Code 6 open lock 1 lock 2 and lock 3
Code 7 open lock 1 lock 2, lock 3 and lock 4

Let me know if you have any problem follow these instructions and you should be ok.

I think it needs to be done with no sim card in the phone remember you only get 5 goes after this if its still not unlocked then the only other option is with a lead and unlocking software.

This should solve your problem let me know how you get on ok

This is done at your own risk!

Cell fone from uk


The Cell-phone is SIM-locked to the Orange provider in the UK. (You can only use their SIM-cards in your phone) This is very common and you have to contact Orange in order to get the unlock-code and instructions in how to unlock your phone. The other option is to have a proffesional unlocker unlock your phone, only problem here is that the warranty might be void hereafter.
