Yes,
you can.
If you take it to a phone repair service center.
i think they change the serial number or something, but they get it unlocked.

PUKs, or personal unblocking keys, are used to unblock a mobile phone which becomes blocked. Mobile phones may become blocked when a PIN (personal identification number) is entered incorrectly on three consecutive occasions. In some instances, the phone may become blocked, which requires a PUK to unblock it, and in other instances, the SIM (Subscriber Identity Module) card itself becomes blocked and again will require a PUK to unblock it. Mobile phones are also blocked when they are reported stolen and if there is an outstanding payment on the account. It is important to differentiate between unblocking phones (using a PUK) and unlocking mobile phones (using another type of code). NOTE: It is a criminal offence for anyone to attempt to unblock a mobile phone, other than the network provider who put the block on the phone. If your phone has become blocked by mistake, for example you have entered the PIN incorrectly on three consecutive occasions, then you need to contact the mobile phone network operator with your details. To explain a little more, specific to your mobile phone network, You need to go to your Service providers, web site & navigate your way to the specific PUK details for your mobile phone network operator. Usually you have to Register your phone to get a PUK code.

I accidently pressed something on my samsung SGH-E740 and now it is asking me to enter a puk code and i lost the sheet for it.


The documentation that came with the SIM card contains the PUK code. If you have lost the documentation, then you need to contact your cell phone provider who supplied the SIM card and provide them with your details to confirm ownership, then they can supply you with the PUK code.

Need to unblock it says sim registration failed( network operator did this as i lost it)


The phone is barred as it is reported lost, the phone is the property of the Network or the Insurance company if you had a replacement... If you didnt then you can just call them and they will unblock the handset for you, let them know that you have found it again...

Anyother method of unblocking, is illegal in most countries and is also impossible on this handset.

N73:call not allowed


If the owner of the phone lost it or had it stolen, they can have the phone blocked, using the IMEI (International Mobile Equipment Identity) number. If that’s the case the phone can only be unblocked by a repair shop.
The SIM card is blocked because the person who's phone it was, doesn't want to pay for calls made by someone else. So the SIM card is never going to work again.

Blacklisting:
This is not a security code, but it works like one! To help combat mobile phone thefts, the networks share a database of the IMEI (International Mobile Equipment Identity) of mobile phones that have been reported stolen. Once a phone is on this list, it will not be allowed to use any of the networks.
This can be a risk if you buy a second-hand phone, because if it has been stolen, or if an unscrupulous seller makes an insurance claim after selling, the phone you bought in good faith may be permanently disabled.
Be very careful to check the source of a second-hand phone!
