SOURCE: I've tired to set the PIN code for my Nokia 6085 phone but I cannot.

Complete information :
The SIM card protects your subscription and not the phone from unauthorised users. If you change SIM cards you can still use your phone with a new SIM card. Most SIM cards are blocked at the time of purchase. If your SIM card lock is on you have to enter your PIN (Personal Identity Card) every time you turn on the phone.

If you enter the wrong password three times in a row the SIM card gets blocked. This is indicated by the message PIN Blocked To unblock this you need to enter your PUK

Note:

card (Personal Unblocking Key). Your PIN and PUK is supplied by your service provider. You can edit your PIN and select a new four to eight digit number

  • If the Message Codes do not match appears when you edit your PIN you entered the new PIN incorrectly.
  • If the message Wrong PIN followed by Old PIN appears then it means that you have entered the old PIN incorrectly.

To unblock your SIM card:
  1. When PIN Blocked appears enter your PUK > OK
  2. Enter a new four to eight PIN > OK
  3. Re-enter the new PIN to confirm > OK

To edit your PIN:
  1. > Settings > the General tab > Security > Locks > SIM Protection > Change PIN
  2. Enter your PIN > OK
  3. Enter a new four to eight digit PIN to confirm > OK

To turn the SIM card On /Off
  1. > Settings > the General tab > Security > Locks > SIM Protection > Protection and select On or Off
  2. Enter your PIN > OK

HOLD ON!
You may enter wrong PIN three (3) times only. After that your PIN will be blocked! To unblock, you need PUK. You can only enter wrong PUK ten (10) times. (This is as documented) After entering correct PUK, you will be asked for NEW PIN.

So, when it says "PIN blocked. Enter PUK code", you must enter the PUK. If you correctly enter the PUK, it will asked for new PIN, by asking "Enter new PIN code:". Enter anything you want as your PIN. You will be asked to enter it twice (two times).
From what I read from your post, you have done correctly, but you don't want to enter new PIN. There is no way SIM card/phone will use old PIN. The device doesn't know your PIN. So, you have to enter new PIN.

SOURCE: PUK code

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.

For example , f you are in UK, and have lost vodafone or Orange pin, and puk code kicked in, then contact is below.


Vodafone Contact us

Vodafone UK - Contact us

use google to find contact number for your sim card fone company in your area. That is the only way to unlock PUK for free, and it always work.

I turned on my phone and it asked for a puk code and i dont have or know what that is plz help


This should explain it for you :
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 AT&T to unlock it.

You can receive your phone's PUK code from AT&T, either by logging into your account at myWireless Account, visiting our Technical Support Chat, or by calling Customer Care at 1-800-331-0500.

Once your PUK has been received, it will need to be entered into your phone to set a new PIN code.

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".

Pin code


LG default PIN code is 1111, but this may not work if phone company has set their own pin.

If you enter PIN code wrong three times You will trigger PUK code , that means that you will have to call phone company or replace SIM card.

If you do not find the PIN code, put 1111. If PUK code starts do the following:

The PUK code is asked if you enter a wrong pin 3 times.

You need to call the phone company that released the SIM card, they can retrieve the PUK code from a database for free.

In your case you need to contact your SIM card provider technical support to unlock the SIM.


The PIN and PUK are related to the SIM card, not to the phone.

If you replace the SIM card with a different one, then the phone will not ask for the PUK anymore.

Forgot my sim pin: i don't want to try more than 2x scared to


Hey,

after you enter it wrong 3 times the simcard will lock the pin code and ask for a puk code.

If you have forgotten the pin code, then don't worry. Just enter it wrong untill its locked (3times)

then call your phone service provider for the puk code, with the puk code you can set a new pin code, instructions at your phone service provider.

I've explained more about the puk code on this page

Let me know if you need anything else.


Thanks,
