Nokia N73, try to reformat your phone, first turn it OFF. Press * 3 send at the same time and keep them pressed while you turn power on.
Give it time to work.

My phone is asking for a PUK code and i do not know what it is. i have a att lg vu

Hi, when you have a simcard it has a password to unlock it, which you made. If you fail to correctly enter your password three times. The phone will stay locked, till you enter a second code which you get with your simcard, that is called the PUK code. It is meant to be an extra safety system, so no one can try the wrong simcard lock code for more then three wrong attempts. Call your provider of the simcard. They can give you a puck code if you lost it I think. So remember to be careful when entering your simlock code.

Simcard registration failed

you need to free the network from the phone (unlock it) you can download xss++ for about 3 dollars and do yours and your mates providing you have the USB cable that came with the phone. Failing that you would have to go to a back street phone repair shop where they will charge you a small fortune
