How do i unlock my phone


There are two types of lock Beth.

A PUK Code lock which his put on by the service company for a number of reasons. It can only be unlocked by a code supplied by the company.

A user set pin code or lock pattern. If you try to unlock your phone more than 10 times, the service company will lock it with a PUK Code.

If you have not exceeded the number of tries, the only way is a factory reset, which scrubs everything off the phone including the lock on it.

Hi,

My name is Ben and I'm your guru, i.e., mentor, an influential teacher or popular expert: a management guru. - origin from Sanskrit, 'weighty, grave', for today.

As you evaluate my advice and suggestions, there are a few things you must keep in mind:

Subject: How to unlock a cell phone

Customer's exact description:how to unlock nokia x6 show kore

Discussion: Problems of this type can be either Phone Locked, SIM card Locked, or Lost Password. Customer did not provide sufficient detail to narrow the problem.

Solution: Provide instructions on how to deal with all three possibilities.

Problem areas: The question most honest people ask me is, "Is it legal to unlock a cell phone?" In Europe, the answer is generally yes. Though laws differ from country to country, they tend to favor consumers over companies. In the United States, the answer is also yes. The U.S. Copyright Office issues rulings every three years, and in 2006, they declared that unlocking a cell phone does not infringe on the copyright of the phone manufacturer or service provider, and therefore isn't prohibited.
In order to provide the customer with precise information, one must have the following information.

• Phone description including the make and model.
• The name of the subscriber's carrier (a.k.a. service provider).
• Information as to whether it is the phone or the SIM that is locked.


Possible solutions: The process of unlocking a phone is actually quite simple, and doesn't require any technical knowledge. There are three accepted methods for accomplishing the unlocking. For some phones, you just have to enter a numeric code into the phone. For a fee, some service providers will even give you the proper unlock code for your phone. There are also third party companies that provide cell phone unlock codes for a fee that ranges from $5 to about $25, depending on the model of phone you have.

There is a very high probability that your carrier will unlock your phone at one of its retail outlets. Manufacturers provide their customers (AT&T, Verizon, Nextel, etc.) with the unlock codes. However, if you - the ultimate consumer - write to Sony-Ericsson, LG, Motorola, Nokia, etc. and request an unlock code, that request will be refused. However, be forewarned that some service providers will charge you a fee for unlocking your phone.

Secondly, you can unlock your phone on your own. For some phones, you just have to enter a numeric code into the phone. I don't hand out these numbers because they vary from company-to-company and usually don't work, But if you have the patience, there are several instructional videos on www.youtube.com that provide some useful data. However, I don't recommend them because most of these videos are only free to look at. Yes they are trying to sell you something, like their service.

CNET has several pieces of free software that claim to unlock phones. Click on the following link and perhaps you can find something of interest. Nokia Free Unlock Codes Calculator


Lastly, for a fee, there are third party companies that provide cell phone unlock codes at a cost that ranges from $5 to about $25, depending on the model of phone you have. The only company that I recommend is Freedom Unlock and the fee for most popular phones is about Five (5.00) USD. I have no interest in this company and my only contact has been in researching their website.

PUK Codes

A PUK (PIN Unlock Key) code is required to unlock SIM cards that have become locked following three successive incorrect PIN entries. If your SIM card becomes locked, you will need to get a PUK code from AT&T to unlock your SIM card.

Since I don't know the name of you carrier, I'm using AT&T as an example. Most carriers use the same methodology though the wording may be different.

You can obtain your phone's PUK code from AT&T in one of these ways:

• Log in to myAT&T online
• Use our Technical Support Chat.
• Contact Customer Care


To get your phone's PUK code online:

? Log in to myAT&T.
? From the myAT&T tab at the top of the page, hover over the Wireless link and select Phone/Device under the My Wireless Service heading.
? From the My Phone/Device screen, select the Unblock SIM Card link under the My Make & Model heading.
? The Unblock SIM screen will display your PUK code and will give you instructions for unblocking your SIM Card.

Once you receive your PUK code, you will need to enter it into your phone to set a new PIN code.

Note: If you enter the wrong PUK code 10 times in a row, your SIM card will be invalidated, and you will need to purchase a new SIM Card. The phone will display the following error: "PUK blocked call operator."

You can also do it without any assistance from anyone. However, be sure to read the following carefully because there are pitfalls. If you want to try to do it yourself, just click on the following link:
Universal Software Solution for Unlocking a SIM Card

Although most people remember their primary SIM PIN code, those other codes - used for various verification purposes - are never to be found when needed. Below I've included a set of short codes which, when entered on a handset's standby screen, will let you easily change PIN and PUK (short for Pin Unlock Code) codes - but keep in mind, they may not work with all handsets and mobile operators.

More importantly, when changing one's PUK codes there'll be no help to get from the mobile operator if the new codes are forgotten, so make sure to write any changes down alongside the old PUK codes.

The following methodology does not work for every phone. Perhaps you'll be lucky. Also, please note that the codes should be entered without the spaces shown below.

The following has a 95% success rate:

  1. Unlock service provider:
  2. Insert sim, turn phone on and press vol up(arrow keys) for 3 seconds, should say pin code.
  3. Press C,then press * message should flash, press * again and 04*pin*pin*pin#\*#7328748263373738# resets security code.
The success rate is about 25% for the following:

Change SIM Card PIN
** 04 * old PIN * new PIN * new PIN #

Change SIM Card PIN 2 (Write down the new code)
** 042 * old PIN * new PIN * new PIN #

Change SIM Card PUK (Write down the new code)
** 05 * old PUK * new PUK * new PUK #

Change SIM Card PUK 2 (Write down the new code)
** 052 * old PUK * new PUK * new PUK #

Display Handset IMEI
*# 06 #

This was wordy but hopefully it helped you.

When i put on the phone it is saying enter phone lock code

Solution: Provide instructions on how to deal with all three possibilities.

How can you tell if your phone is already unlocked? In Europe, unlocked phones are more common. In fact, many countries have cell phone portability laws that make it illegal for a company to lock a phone to a specific account (though these laws seem to change frequently). In North America, fewer phones are sold unlocked. If you received a phone for free or at a very low price when you signed a contract for your cell phone service, your phone is almost certainly locked.

There's an easy way to find out for sure: Find a friend whose phone is known to be unlocked. Have your friend place his or her SIM card in your phone, and then call your friend's number. If your phone rings, you know your phone is unlocked. If your phone simply generates an error message, then it's locked.

Is the unblocking code same as the puk code


Thanks for visiting FixYa!

There are several security codes used on cell phones. I'll try to define each:

1) Limited access code: This is a pre-set code that limits the phone's use to dialing or receiving only pre-programmed numbers. For example, an employer gives a company phone to a delivery guy which will only make calls to -and receive calls from - the office.

2) Security codes:

a) Software security unlock code: Most phones are locked to accept only apps (software) from approved venders. This code is used to unlock the phone so it will download and install third-party applications.

b) User Security Codes (or Blocking codes) : This code unlocks the phone so it can be used to make and receive calls. Without this code the phone is 'blocked' from making or receiving calls.

PUC Code: This code is required when a security code (or block code) has been entered incorrectly too many times. (For example: Someone finds a lost phone which has requires a security code to use the phone, and attempts to guess the code several times.) Once this happens, the phone becomes locked to where the security code can no longer be guessed. A PUC code must now be entered. And, the only way to obtain the PUC Code is directly from the cell phone company that provides service to the phone. (A PUC Code is sometimes referred to as a Master Unlock Code.) Without it, the phone can never make calls again. Attempting to guess the PUC code 10 times can/will damage the phone and the SIM card if the phone has one.

SIM Unlock: Sim Unlock, or Network Unlock is a code which when entered on the phone allows the phone to be used with different cell phone companies.

Select Menu > Settings > Security and from the following options:
  • PIN code request or UPIN code request-to set the phone to ask for your PIN or UPIN code every time the phone is switched on. Some SIM cards do not allow the code request to be turned off.
  • Security level > Phone-to set the phone to ask for the security code whenever a new SIM card is inserted into the phone. If you select Memory, the phone asks for the security code when the SIM card memory is selected, and you want to change the memory in use.
  • Access codes-to change the security code (default code is 12345), PIN code, PIN2 code, or restriction password.

Securing your Shine
Secure your LG Shine and your account from thieves by locking your phone and your SIM card Losing a phone through accident or to a light-fingered thief is annoying, frustrating and potentially very costly, especially if the 'finder' uses your SIM card to make expensive calls. You can, however, lock both your phone and your SIM card with four-figure PIN numbers to prevent unauthorised use.
The first line of defence is to set a SIM card PIN. This means that whenever you turn on your handset you have to enter a PIN code before the SIM can be used. The default PIN code for your SIM is dependent upon your network; usually it will be found in a small booklet that came with the SIM card.
The PIN can be enabled, disabled or changed from the Security menu – but you only get three chances to enter it correctly. After those three, the SIM will get locked and can only be unlocked by entering the PUK (PIN Unlocking Key) which your network can give you. Enter the PUK incorrectly 10 times, and the SIM will be irrecoverably locked.
To activate a PIN code request, open the main menu by clicking on the scroll wheel. Click 9 to access the Settings menu and click 6 to enter the Security menu. The first item is PIN code request - click 1 or OK to open it. By default this will be set to off. To activate a PIN request, click 1; you'll now be prompted to enter the four-digit PIN. When you've done this, click OK, and if the pin was correct, you'll see the confirmation message 'Complete'.
To deactivate the PIN code request, you would simply select Off from the menu by pressing 2; you'll need to enter the PIN code whenever you change this setting.
PIN code request prevents another user from using your lost or stolen SIM card in their own phone. To lock your phone, and thus render it useless to a thief, you can activate Phone lock.
Two levels of handset locking are available. The first - called 'When power on' in the Phone lock menu - is to require an unlock code to be entered whenever the handset is switched on. This can be confusing and irritating when used together with the SIM PIN, so a second option is to only request the handset unlock code when the SIM card has been changed - called 'When SIM changed'. This means that if your phone is stolen, the thief can't use their own SIM card in it as the phone will need a PIN code to unlock.
To activate either option, go to the Security menu (clicking 9 for Settings and 6 for Security from the main menu) and click 2 to enter the Phone lock menu. Click 2 to activate When power on or 3 to activate When SIM changed. In either case you'll be prompted to enter the security code. By default this is 0000. Enter the code and click OK to confirm.
To change either code, go to the Security menu again (clicking 9 for Settings and 6 for Security from the main menu) and click 5 to enter the Change codes menu. To change the handset's security code, click 1 to select Security code, or to change the SIM PIN, click 2 to select PIN1 code. In either case you'll be prompted to enter the old code before entering the new code twice, clicking OK to confirm each time.
