I forget my samsung c3630 passward how i fi x thir


You need to get the PUK-Code. If ypu enter the PUK-Code you can enter ypur phone and restore your password. Now... there are 2 possibilitys to get that PUK-code:

1. Look in the package of your phone. There should be a paper that belongs to your sim-card. Somethimes you find that PUK-Code also on your cellphone-contract.

2. Make contact with your provider. He will ask you some questions to ensure it is really your phone. If it is your phone, he will give you the PUK-Code.


Now when you have the PUK-Code you may enter the wrong password two or three times untill the PUK-screen shows up.
Enter the PUK-Code given by your provider or found on the papers.

Don't insert a false PUK-Code or else your phone will be locked.

Puk blocked


For PUK codes, you can attempt 10x to enter the PUK codes in your phone. Once you enter incorrect PUK codes 10x,you'll recieve PUK blocked then what you need is to enter the PUK2. Make sure that you will enter the PUK2 correctly because if you enter incorrect PUK codes 10x,you'll recieve PUK BLOCKED error again. This time,you need to ask your service provider for SIM replacement.

Dont know how to enter the puk code


hello
Finding a PUK (Personal Unblocking Key) number is not tough job. To find a PUK code all you have to do is call up on the customer care number and ask them to help you with the issue. Before they provide you the PUK code, they will ask you several questions. You need to give them the appropriate information. Customer care of your service provider are the only source from which can give you the PUK code.
At the time when you enter a wrong pin number three times. The phone asks you for a PUK number. The PUK code is generally eight digit number This PUK number is an unlocking code which helps you to unlock the phone and use it. If you enter a wrong PUK number 10 times than you simcard gets rejected. Then you will have to but a new simcard. It might happen that your phone might ask you for PUK2 after you enter your PUK number.

hope this helps

Phone comes up with - PIN blocked.Enter PUK code.I think this happened because I tried to enter PIN code but could not remember it .


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.
Contact your mobile phone provider.

Yh need me puk number


What is a PUK code? 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 phone company to unlock it.
What should I do if my phone says Enter PUK Code? How can I get a PUK Code? You can receive your phone's PUK code by calling your phone company Customer Care.. Once your PUK has been received, it will need to be entered into your phone to set a new PIN code. 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".
