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.

Motorola defy - i want to put a new sim card in, but i can only get emergency calls. Telsta said I need a pku number from motorola

PUK Locks or SIM Locks only come from the company that own the phone, usually the cellular provider when it was new. PUK Locks are also used when a phone is stolen so that the new user who bought it from a guy in a bar can't use it. Contracts are normally 2 years. The PUK lock is from the original company. This issue is NOTHING to do with Motorola. The company that had the phone originally as being difficult so that you can't use it, because they don't like losing your business and the phone they provided to you. They lock with a 128bit RSA encryption key at firmware level, which is the part of the phone that loads the data on the SIM and loads the Operating System. Plan B is to sticlk with Telstra, Plan C is get a new phone from another company.

Read this tip I wrote which fully explains

Your phone is asking for PUK code

and then I wrote this after a young lady who read the first one and then posted there must be another way to get past a PUK Lock.

So your phone asks for PUK Code and you ask if there is another way

Once you have got it unlocked, take it a kiosk or shop of the new company and let them put the new service on it. They need control of the phone physically to make it theirs via IMEI number.

I need the puk code for nokia 5230-1c

You will get the PUK code from your cellular operator itself. So please contact the customer care of the cellular operator and they will provide you PUK code. They will ask for mobile no and the last paid bill or last recharge on your phone.

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.

Itsasking for my pku number and i type in alot ok

If you try pin more than few predefined no of times your phone will ask PUK code which can also be given only by your service provider which is specific for each and every mobile number . Donot try PUK code many times or else your sim will be blocked and you will need a new sim.
Contact your sim customer care department over phone. Its free of cost to get the pin or puk no.

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

There is no other go than the above procedure only your service provider can give it nobody else in this world nor any software.
