Call your carrier tell your carrier's customer service representative that you're traveling abroad and want to use a foreign carrier's Sim card If they don't give you the code, stick by your guns and ask for a manager.

Hi,

A PUK (PIN Unlock Key) code is required to unlock SIM card 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 your service provider to unlock your SIM card. You only get ten chances to enter a PUK before the SIM card becomes permanently disabled.

You can also look the back of the SIM pack, the PUK code is written on it. Or call your service provider. When you enter this PUK code it will request for a new code enter code and your phone will come up.

Regards

Sim unlock code was entered more than three times on my nokia e73. the phone now displays 'NOT ALLOWED' if i try to enter a unlock code again. how can i get pass this or is the phone now useless


This is a security feature of SIM cards. Your SIM card has become locked after entering the wrong unlock code three times. You can call your phone carrier to have them provide you the SIM card PUK code. This will unlock your SIM card. Be careful when entering the SIM PUK code, if you enter it wrong ten times the SIM card will be forever locked.

Heyy... I have this Sammsung GENOA phone.. and I accidentally try to put a PIN lock my phone... so I don't know the PUK code... please tell me what is the PUK code...


Hi,

If you need the PUK ( Personal Unblocking Key ) for your phone, you will have to contact your mobile phone service provider.

PUK code is related to the SIM card you are using and not the phone. So, kindly call the Customer support of your mobile service provider and they will provide you with the PUK code free of charge.

Also, entering a wrong PUK code ten times in a row disables the SIM card permanently. So, please be careful while entering the PUK code.

Thanks for using FixYa.

Well there is no universal PUK code available which you punch in and get the phone unlocked. So do not try to punch in PUK codes which your are not sure of in an effort to unlock the phone, because putting the wrong PUK code, ten times in a row will permanently deactivate your SIM card.

So to unlock the Nokia PUK code, you will have to call the customer service helpline of the network provider, who will ask you for the registration number of your SIM card. Once you provide them with the SIM card registration number, the PUK code will be given to you. PUK code better known as the PUC or the personal unlocking code is a feature which is present in all GSM cell phones.

Tocco lite phone freeze deactivate fail


here is some info on PUK codes:

try taking battery and SIM out waiting 15 seconds and powering cell back on.

In your case I believe your SIM is now FROZEN or locked. You mostlikely will need to purchase a new SIM card.

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 your service provider to unlock it.

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".

Sim Card Problem In LG Vu


This happened to me too. A temporary fix is turn off your phone and put it in front of a really cold air conditioner for about ten minutes. Then turn it on but make sure you keep it in front of the ac to keep it working. What happened is your sim card reader has a thermal problem so you will need to take it in unless you want to spend all your time in front of the ac (which will get expensive...)
