Hi. The first thing I would do is call my carrier. It sounds like either the SIM card is bad or there could be something wrong with your account or coverage area. Your carrier will be able to help you figure out what's wrong.

SOURCE: The screen says. SIM card



Your phone will ask for PUK code when you entered the PIN code wrongly several times depending upon the mobile make. The mobile asks for PUK code so that unauthorized persons do not use your mobile for wrong cause.

To get PUK code please contact your service provider through phone or go directly to their office. They will provide you the PUK code for your mobile. The PUK code is unique for each mobile phone that you can open your phone. When you planning to call your service provider you cannot use your mobile as it is fully locked. Please use some other mobile with same network to call your service provider.

This PUK code prevents thieves from being able to make use of stolen handsets, that is why it can only be given by the service provider only.

While you get the PUK code ,the service provider customer care officer will ask for your personal details to check whether the mobile belongs to you only. If they are satisfied with your answers they will provide with the PUK code

DONOT enter the PUK code several times wrongly,It will block your sim card permanently.

This PUK code is FREE. You no need to pay any money to get the PUK code

Thank You.

I just bought a LGL21G cell phone from a friend and when I turn it on it says sim card not provisioned #mm2, emergecy calls only and when I look for my phone number it says unavailable. Can some one please...

Hi Jodi

There's two parts to connecting to a wireless phone network - the phone, and the network. The SIM card is a uniquely numbered ID chip that facilitates your phone
  1. Connecting to the network, and
  2. Identifying who you are and what account you're associated with.
If the phone is saying SIM card not provisioned, that likely means that the card is not associated with an account with the network. When your friend sold you the phone, they will almost certainly have updated their account so that that particular phone is no longer on the account. (Unless they were intending for you to be on their account after you bought the phone)

In that likely case, you'll need to contact the carrier, either on another phone or at one of the carrier's brick & mortar store fronts, and talk to them about associating the phone with an account. If you already have an account there, it'll likely just be a matter of registering / activating the phone, and possibly putting a new SIM card in it. Likely as not, some activation fees so that they can extract money from you. If you don't have an account there, you'll need to set one up and select plans, as needed, for voice, messaging, and data. Depending on the phone type, it may be usable on several networks. There are a couple of different network protocols, and the phone hardware will generally be built for one type. An AT&T phone, for instance, will not work on Verizon, since the network protocols are different.

I hope this gets you headed in the right direction!
Happy Holidays

How can I use my iphone 3 without a sim card

You Can't Use It Without A Sim Card. The Phone Goes Into A Safe Mode And You Can Only Use It For An Emergecy Call .
It Won't Let You Call Any Number Other Than 911 I Believe .
I Was Going Through Something And Tried To Call My Father,
And It Wouldn't Go Through.
Try Getting A Sim Card With A Plan Perrferably From AT&T
Or If You Know You Won't Be Able To Sell The Iphone And Buy An Ipod.
You Can Get Apps To Text For Free When You Have Wifi
Or To Actually Call .

HOw do i get my PUK code without contacting my servise provide?

A request for a PUK code ("Personal Unlocking Key") will appear on your phone if your SIM card PIN code is entered 3 consecutive times incorrectly.

Your SIM card will then become "PUKed" or Blocked. This is a security measure to protect your service.

You need to call the Customer Service department of your cell phone provider and they will give you the PUK code which will unblock your SIM card.

Hi mate got problem with samsung jet s800

These are the troubleshooting and resolution steps for customers who see "Emergency Calls Only" or similar messages on their wireless phones. This message normally indicates that the customer lacks a wireless service provider/account or the device/SIM is not recognized.

  1. Power-cycle the device.
    1. Power off the phone. While the SIM card is out of the device, clean the SIM card contacts by following these additional steps:
      1. Gently wipe the SIM with a soft cloth.
      2. Clean the gold contacts on the SIM card using a pencil eraser.
      3. Carefully remove all eraser residues from the SIM card.
      4. Carefully replace the SIM card back into its cavity.
      5. Check for Liquid damage; refer to Liquid Damage Indicator (LDI) Log.
      6. Once the SIM card is secure, replace the battery and back cover and power on the phone.
  2. Place an outbound call.
  3. If the test call is successful, end the call.
  4. If the test call is not successful and it is possible, test the SIM card in another known working device.
    • To ensure accurate results, the test device must be the same technology as the device in question (UMTS, GSM, etc).
    • Ensure the test device is the same type of device (smartphone to smartphone, non-smartphone to non-smartphone).
  5. If the test call is successful with the SIM in a different phone,
  6. If the test call is not successful, the SIM needs to be replaced. Or you can call at&t so they can give you a free sim card. it depends on the situation.
( i hope i answer your question )

Not reading smartchip.

Check to be sure the SIM is i

If it works, there is an issue with your VU and you should contact AT&T for replacement options (warranty, insurance, upgrade). There are other options too like purchasing from ebay or craiglist, or getting a gophone (AT&T prepaid) and putting your SIM in it. It will have your phone number and contact information, you don't have to activate a prepaid account.

If the SIM does not work in another phone, get a SIM replacement. You can do this free and save $25 by going to your nearest AT&T COR store (the ones that sell iPhones, not best buy or walmart or apple... AT&T) and telling the tech support said to get a free SIM.

Hope I could help :)

It alway diplay No SIM Card inserted even when there SIM Card in it.

Solution, try putting a paper behind the sim card before placing it in the cellphone. The paper adds thickness to the sim card and makes it touch the connectors in the cellphone.
