Imei number blocked by att how do you unblock it


Hapy New Year;

Hi
PUK code is called as PERSONNAL UNBLOCKING KEY.
Your phone will ask for PUK code when you entered the PIN code wrongly several times depending upon the mobile make. The mobile asks for PUK code so that unauthorized persons do not use your mobile for wrong cause.
To get PUK code please contact your service provider through phone or go directly to their office. They will provide you the PUK code for your mobile. The PUK code for mobile phone.so that you can open your phone. When you planning to call your service provider you cannot use your mobile as it is fully locked. Please use some other mobile with same network to call your service provider.
While you get the PUK code ,the service provider customer care officer will ask for your personal details to check whether the mobile belongs to you only. If they are satisfied with your answers they will provide with the PUK code
DONOT enter the PUK code several times wrongly,It will block your sim card permanently.
This PUK code is FREE. You no need to pay any sum to get the PUK code
Thank You.

Sim lock code

Still with me?

This is generic because I don't know the name of your carrier. I'll be using AT&T as an example. Most carriers use the same procedure but the wording may differ.

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 your carrier. For example, if you have AT&T to unlock your SIM card, you can obtain your phone's PUK code from AT&T by:

? logging in to your my wireless Account online
? using their Technical Support Chat
? calling Customer Care at 1-800-331-0500

To get your phone's PUK code online from ATT:

? Log in to your my wireless Account.
? Select My Services under My Account.
? From the My Services screen, select My Phone/Device.
? Select Unblock SIM Card.
? The Unblock SIM screen will display your PUK code.


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 ATT 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."

I trust that this is helpful and solves your problem. All the best

What is the PUK code for Nokia X6?


A cell phone PUK (PIN unlock Key) is connected with the SIM card, not just the cell phone itself. To obtain the PUK, you need to contact the service provider of the SIM card.
AT&T's customer care number: 1-800-331-0500 or through att.com/myatt T-Mobile's customer care number: 1-800-866-2453
If you use a different carrier, check their website.

Sim blocked


Hello,

A sim block usually indicates that your wireless provider has put a block on your account. There are also certain applications associated with wireless phones in which a user can set up their phone and lock it remotely, or block many of the features accessible on it.

I would start with your wireless network carrier. Ask them why the SIM card is blocked.

Idk my PUK code for my LG KP500 and i cant call AT&T cause they are closed


hi,

You can locate your PUK usually it is included in your sim card kit when you purchase it. if you lost it already, this is the last thing we can do. Contact your operator customer care or visit them and ask for your PUK code and they are very glad to help you. they will ask you several questions pertaining to your account to verify if you are the real owner. You can also get it on-line on most operator if they have this service at their website if they are closed.

Follow this link for AT&T: http://www.wireless.att.com/answer-center/main.jsp?t=solutionTab&solutionId=KB33662

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

My pin has been blocked, I need the PUK code


The PUK is a unique number that is assigned to your SIM card. Your SIM is blocked not the phone. If you try another SIM in the phone it should work just fine. In order for you to unlock your SIM, you need to check the papers that you got with your SIM card, the PUK1 and PUK2 should be on that paper. When your phone is security code lock usually you need the PUK2 to unlock it but some phones use the PUK1 to unlock it, you'll need to get this information from your service provider. If you don't have the papers for the SIM you'll need to contact your service provider for the PUK, some companies may require you to verify that you are the owner before they provide it to you.
