The answer is simple...The phone is network locked...either contact the UK Vodafone customer care or contact a mobile shop where you can get it unlocked then you can use the phone in any country...I got my unlocked in INDIA for Rs. 800 that's about $20.That's all you can do because every phone has a different code...so your's one is also unique.

Contact your ASP (administrator service provider) like VODAFONE as you will not be able to use this sim card at any other phone except your password Or you can put your password more than 10 times then sim card will be purged finally you can make sim swap and it will work normally

Tocco lite phone freeze deactivate fail


here is some info on PUK codes:

try taking battery and SIM out waiting 15 seconds and powering cell back on.

In your case I believe your SIM is now FROZEN or locked. You mostlikely will need to purchase a new SIM card.

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 service provider to unlock it.

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".

I cant use different sim-card with my samsung S5230. It only accepts vodafone card but not my estonian card.


Yep, this means that is locked. Every Samsung have different codes to unlock, you have to make sure and set the lock password to 00000000, then unlock it by code. Here are some codes: *2767*3855# Full reset *2767*2878#Custom reset *7465625*638*00000000*00000000# This will set the phone lock to 8 zero. *7465625*638*00000000#  to unlock it.  Try *#7465625# to verify the phone's lock status.

MESSAGE ON SCREEN SAYS SIM LOCK BUT NETWORK SAY PHONE IS UNLOCKED


Yes this is the ping pong senario vodophone say it Samsung who have information and vis versa. I believe I would email support@dynamicmarketinguk.co.uk, they charge £3.99 paypal or credit card, but it will cost you this in phone calls if you are not careful nevermind your time, they are honest and refund you immediately if they cannot unlock your mobile. Takes an hour. Good luck

I want to lnow my PUK code for my Samsung D900 on vodafone, with the SIM card on orange


The Puk number depends on the pin lock on the sim, the phone will still work with a different Sim card.

To unlock the Puk code you need to call the contact number for the service provider for your Sim. Alternatively you can unlock the PUK code at a local shop for a small fee, £10 or £20 in UK.

To unlock PUK, call the company that branded your Sim card.

If you are in UK, contact is below, otherwise use google to find contact number in your area.

Unlock the motorola v1050


Firstly your phone is locked ...once it ask u for a subsidy password it means that the phone is locked to the sim card or the provider your trying to use.The message contact provider means that you have tried the incorrect subsidy code over eight times so the phone would automatically show the message contact service provider or contact operator. You need to get the subsidy code for this phone off ebay at www.cellunlock.net or from anyone of the many sellers of motorola codes.The codes cost us$7.99.I can get the code for you for a cost of us $10.00 if u don't have access to ebay or paypal.
