I cannot fine them...The problem I started with was that while I received Facbook text and questions..I could not answer them or enter any new text, I am desperate.

To install Mozilla, when you do the download, chose Run instead of Save , so that you do not need to locate the installer file afterwards.

If you do not find any other solution, do a system restore.
To Start system restore go to
Start>Programs>Accessories>System Tools>System Restore.
On system restore chose a date close, but one or two days before the problem happened.
You will need to reinstall Facebook text and questions afterward.
If you do not want to do system restore, try updating Internet Explorer to IE8.Internet Explorer 8: Home page. Use Run instead of Save when asked.

PUK code problem


PUK code means Personal Unblocking Key. It is used to verify if the person trying to access a sim is the real owner of the sim card. It is mainly a way to protect a sim card from being used wrongly by a person that does not own the sim. If a wrong code is entered three (3) times on a phone, then the sim gets automatically blocked and begin to request for the PUK code.

The PUK code is mainly found on the starter kit where the sim was taken out from. When you bought your sim card, it came in a pack, on the pack there is a card that looks like a credit card, where the sim card is originally attached.

On the card, there are some codes on it, like the mobile number along side the sim pin number and a 8 digit PUK code. That is the code that is required on the phone.

Once you enter it, the phone will ask for a new pin code for the sim, then you enter it, it will ask you to re enter the pin code, then the sim will be unblocked.

But if you do not have the Pack any more, please do not panic, all you need to do is to contact the customer care or help center of the sim service provider and ask them for the code, they will give it to you after asking some simple security questions about the sim card.

Hope this was helpful to you.

My safe link phones says sim blocked,how do I unlock the cell phone I cant text?


Your phone is SIM Locked and asking for a PUK code?

Is your phone asking for a PUK code. PUK = Personal Unlocking Key. Personal Unblocking Key, or PIN Unblocking Key.

This can only come from your cellphone carrier and usually the company that still owns the phone under the agreement. Sometimes it is because you have put another SIM card in it, and they own the phone and need you to use them as carrier to get the price of the phone back, or you are in default of payment, or on a Pay as You Go plan, it is over expired. I can also happen if you have entered the unlock code wrongly three times. This often happens when a phone is stolen or lost and has been found by or sold to someone else who then try and use the phone. Wikipedia A personal unblocking code (PUC), also known as a PIN unlock key (PUK), is used in 3GPP mobile phones to reset a personal identification number (PIN) that has been lost or forgotten.
Most mobile telephones offer the feature of PIN protection. After switching on the phone, if the PIN security function is active, the user is requested to enter a 4-8 digit PIN enabling the phone's non-emergency calling functions. If the wrong PIN is typed in more than three times, either the SIM card, the device, or both become locked. They can be returned to their original unlocked state by entering a PUC, provided by the service operator after verification. If the wrong PUC is entered ten times in a row, the device will become permanently blocked and unrecoverable, requiring a new SIM card. Cellular phone users are therefore advised by most providers to keep their PUC written down in a safe place separate from the device.
The PUC (PUK) is a SIM-specific code assigned and provided by the service provider.
Once you enter the PUK code, you must set a PIN. The PUK and PUK2 are used to unlock the PIN and PIN2 codes respectively if your SIM card is blocked
From Bell
The PIN unblocking key (PUK; sometimes called personal unlocking key) is a master security code for unblocking and resetting the personal identification number (PIN) for your SIM card. For added security, the PUK is unique to your SIM card. If your PIN code is active and you enter it incorrectly three times, your SIM card will be blocked. You won't be able to use your phone, except for emergency calls. You must enter your PUK into your phone to unblock the SIM card. If your SIM card becomes blocked, Contact us to get your PUK.
You may be able to do it from the website or your cellular provider. This is from Orange - T-Mobile in the UK.
Your phone can become blocked in a number of ways - one of them is if you enter your SIM card PIN number incorrectly three times in a row. To unblock your SIM card, you will need to use something called a PUK (Personal Unblocking Key).
Remember that unblocking is different to unlocking. Read more information on unlocking your device.

Radio in safe mode


Radio is locked because someone entered the wrong code more than three times.

Radio must be left on for one hour before it will change to CODE. At which time you can enter your radio code .( Do not just leave ignition on...battery will be discharged inside the hour.)

You have three trys before it locks and says SAFE.

If it does not take the code you have you will need to call VW and ask them if they can obtain the code. However, VW demands that the owner must be present and have ownership papers for the can and a valid id.

If the listed code still is not taken by the radio, you need to pull the radio out ( Special tools required.) and record ALL the numbers you find on the radio chassis so VW dealer can pull up code for that radio.

Or...have an after market radio installed.

With only limited information provided about your type of actual antique clock this symptom has to conclude that your clock is a non self correcting style.

Step one: Ensure clock is striking the hour. during the time of the hour strike quickly move the minute hand to the hour.

Step two: Move to the half hour allow to strike, move hand to hour allow to strike then move the hour hand to align with the correct count.

Step three: Stop the clock until the correct time has been achieved and start clock OR strike ever hour and half hour until clock is set to the correct time.

Hope this tip guides you to a solution for your clock.

Firefox or IE I've been using IE for ever, lately I've been hearing a lot about Firefox, and thought I might try it, what are the main advantages of Firefox, over IE? What do you prefer Firefox or IE?...


The user interface on the two browser is very similar.

Firefox is considered 'more powerful' because is more customisable, and you can download many extensions, that are plugins with many functions.

Firefox suffer less from virus problem, as there are more viruses designed to attack IE, however majority of viruses do not make any difference between IE, Firefox, Opera etc.

Internet explorer is more unstable and crashes more easily.

Sometimes new plugins (extension) can make Firefox slower.

Sometimes new download updates can make IE slower.

The two browsers are both good, and both work fine on most situation. I personally use Firefox, as it gives me less troubles with Windows.

My suggestion is : download and install Firefox, if you do not like it, then switch back to IE.

You can use both browsers at the same time.
