Is it new? has it fallen? maybe you need to check the internal antenna by opening it and check if its connected....

otherwise it must be you are in a building with too much metal on the roof making it hard to get some signal or the cellphone provider is lame...

    well.. to open it, you must get the lit of the battery out.. then get the battery out, and find where to unscrew, but be carefull.. you could end killing something without knowing what your doing.. and yes, you will need to open it entirely.. the phones with integrated antennas have them really inside..
    i recommend you to send it to somewhere who knows how to fix it.. but there is a higher chance that you aren't getting good reception.. and yes, sometimes it is way to ridiculous that in a room of your house you get signal and in another room you have no signal...
    also.. if you open it. try also cleaning it up a bit with a small soft brush..

Do you live in an area with good reception? If not then that is the problem. If you do live in an area with good reception then the problem could lie with the software of with the hardware. If the problem is in the software a master reset should help, if not a flash of the firmware is required. If it still doesn;t help then the it's hardware related...meaning something to do with the antenna of the phone. It could either be damaged or disconnected from the board of the phone...which in this case the phone needs to be serviced.

    Performing a Master Reset

    NOTE: Master reset will reset all settings except the unlock code, security code, and lifetime timers.

    To perform a master reset, perform the following steps:

    From main screen, select Menu.

    Scroll to and select Settings.

    Scroll to and select Reset settings.

    Scroll to and select Sound settings, Phone settings, or All settings.

    Select Yes.

    Type the password for the phone and select OK.

    NOTE: The default password is 00000000 (8 zeros).

    If this doesn't work, ty your phone in different locations to see if the signal is still bad (try it someplace where reception is very likely to be good like the mall). Flashing and opening up the phone I would recommend you to go to some place that specializes in it.

Unlocking the samsung SGH E635

As you have not specified in particular what is the unlock code required for you, i am giving the ways to unlock all the codes


You can unlock it by flashing your mobile if your mobile is a CDMA mobile...
The procedure for flashing your mobile is in the link below
It has an video explanation.

If your mobile is not an CDMA mobile , you can get the network unlock code(NUC) by just contacting the current network provider customer care department.It is free of cost.

The restriction code can be got from your old service provider..This restriction code is kept to prevent someone who stole the mobile from using it with another provider...

They will have a security check done with your date of birth verify whether you are the exact owner of the phone..

After that they will provide you the restriction code to unlock it and use it with another service provider..

Do not pay anyone for this seeing some advertisement over internet . That is all fake ads.

The above procedure works and you can verify that by seeing the rating of an happy customer here..


PUK code can be given only by your service provider which is specific for each and every mobile number.
Contact your sim customer care department over phone. Its free of cost to get the pin or puk no. If you cant contact through your phone get some other phone and contact them.
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...
Go to the below link and you can confirm that the above procedure works and there is a testimonial given by the customer too.


HI If you are asking for pin contact your service provider , he will give you a default pin .

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 . Do not try PUK(new pin code) 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..


If you are talking about the security lock code to enter into the phone then once it is lost nothing can be done except flashing the mobile . Because if anybody can give the security code created then who ever who steals your phone can get into it and get your valuable information.

So as safety precaution to avoid that they have designed it such that if you forget the security lock you have to reset the mobile memory by flashing the mobile at an authorized service center.So while flashing the mobile all the data in the mobile memory will be lost and you can again start using the mobile.

I locked my phone and nowI don't know the PUK for my samsung sgh-e635.


PUK code in PIN UNLOCKING CODE, which is required when you give PIN number wrongly for 3 times,
This code is OPERATOR specific and not phone specific and you have to call you operator and get PUk if PIN is blocked...

if you provide PUK code wrongly for 7 time, you sim may become useless, then you have to buy new SIM

NOTE: You should ask your service provider..

The phone may have an internal short, either due to bad weather or water / humidity damage. If its under warranty take it for exchange. a new board will cost upwards of $100
