This is a very common problem which I have came across as well. Error 81003003 happens when someone consecutively fails to log in. This can happen because of you or a stranger.

This is a good in some cases. Without this a hacker could brute-force your log in and get your details. Brute-forcing is a way of hacking by trying different letters, words, symbols, or numbers until successful log in.

The best way to solve this issue is to wait 24-hours till your account is unlocked and use your correct information to log in. If you don't have the correct information use Yahoo's password recovery feature. If you still are having issues you can resort to customer care.

I hope this helped and solved your problem. If you're still having issues feel free to comment and I'll help you with any of your other, related, issues.

Thanks

How do i obtain puk lock number for telstra pre paid sim card when i do not know details of account i just use the number for last 12 months


Only from the owners cellphone carrier. They have locked it because they own the phone. It is locked at Firmware level. It is the only way.

Tip & How-To about Cell Phones
Your phone is asking for a PUK code? Is your phone asking for a PUK code. PUK = Personal Unlocking Key. Personal Unblocking Key, or PIN Unblocking Key.

This can only come from your cellphone carrier and usually the company that still owns the phone under the agreement. Sometimes it is because you have put another SIM card in it, and they own the phone and need you to use them as carrier to get the price of the phone back, or you are in default of payment, or on a Pay as You Go plan, it is over expired. I can also happen if you have entered the unlock code wrongly three times. This often happens when a phone is stolen or lost and has been found by or sold to someone else who then try and use the phone. Wikipedia A personal unblocking code (PUC), also known as a PIN unlock key (PUK), is used in 3GPP mobile phones to reset a personal identification number (PIN) that has been lost or forgotten.
Most mobile telephones offer the feature of PIN protection. After switching on the phone, if the PIN security function is active, the user is requested to enter a 4-8 digit PIN enabling the phone's non-emergency calling functions. If the wrong PIN is typed in more than three times, either the SIM card, the device, or both become locked. They can be returned to their original unlocked state by entering a PUC, provided by the service operator after verification. If the wrong PUC is entered ten times in a row, the device will become permanently blocked and unrecoverable, requiring a new SIM card. Cellular phone users are therefore advised by most providers to keep their PUC written down in a safe place separate from the device.
The PUC (PUK) is a SIM-specific code assigned and provided by the service provider.
Once you enter the PUK code, you must set a PIN. The PUK and PUK2 are used to unlock the PIN and PIN2 codes respectively if your SIM card is blocked
From Bell
The PIN unblocking key (PUK; sometimes called personal unlocking key) is a master security code for unblocking and resetting the personal identification number (PIN) for your SIM card. For added security, the PUK is unique to your SIM card. If your PIN code is active and you enter it incorrectly three times, your SIM card will be blocked. You won't be able to use your phone, except for emergency calls. You must enter your PUK into your phone to unblock the SIM card. If your SIM card becomes blocked, Contact us to get your PUK.
You may be able to do it from the website or your cellular provider. This is from Orange - T-Mobile in the UK.
Your phone can become blocked in a number of ways - one of them is if you enter your SIM card PIN number incorrectly three times in a row. To unblock your SIM card, you will need to use something called a PUK (Personal Unblocking Key).
Remember that unblocking is different to unlocking. Read more information on unlocking your device.

How to get a PUK code

The quickest way to get a PUK code is online using My Account. We'll show you this information whenever you need it.
  1. Register or log in to My Account.
  2. Select Help & Support from the main menu options on your account homepage.
  3. Select Get your PUK code.
  4. Then select Get PUK1 code.
  5. Once you have your PUK code, enter this into your phone to unblock your SIM.
Please enter your PUK code carefully - if you enter the wrong PUK code 10 times, you will permanently block your SIM card and we'll need to send you a new one. 1826865-en.jpg?2.0

Pin Codes & PUK Codes ( GSM Phones)


Many cellphone users think that a PIN ( personal Identification Number) code is a security code that is related to the Phone. actually its not. PIN code is a Security code on the SIM card issues by the network Provider ( Vodafone, sprint..etc). once you have failed to access the PIN Code then it will ask you for the PIN2. if you try 3 times with a wrong password then the SIM will require a PUK1 (Pin Unlock Key) this too if entered the wrong password 3 times you will be asked to enter PUK2. if PUK2 is also wrong you SIM will Locked permanently. you have no alternative but to get a replacement SIM.

For PIN & PUK code details. you need to get in touch with your network provider.

What is a PUK code?
A personal unblocking code (PUC), also known as a PIN unlock key (PUK), is used in mobile phones to reset a personal identification number (PIN) that has been lost or forgotten.
How to Unlock the PUK Code on a Mobile Phone If Locked?
GSM phones give you the option to set a PIN code on the SIM card as a security measure. If you only set a phone lock and you lose your phone, someone can remove the SIM and insert it into another phone. The person can then make calls on your account. When you insert the SIM card into another phone, the phone prompts you for the code. If you put in the code wrong three times, the phone will lock the PIN and ask for a PIN Unlocking Key.
Step 1
Contact your cellular carrier. Some phones allow you to call the carrier even if the PUK is locked. You can also dial the carrier's toll-free number from another phone.
Step 2
Select the option to speak with customer care. The customer care agent will ask you to verify your account with the account password.

Step 3
Advise the customer care agent you need a PUK code. The agent will generate a new PUK code and give it to you over the phone.
Step 4
Enter the PUK code into the phone to unlock it.
Tip
Some carriers allow you to generate a PUK through your account on their website, or by talking with online support chat.
Warning
When the phone switches from asking for a PIN to asking for a PUK, stop entering codes. If you enter the PUK code wrong too many times, the PUK will lock permanently and you will need to buy a new SIM card.
--------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
How to Find Out My PUK Code
The PUK code for your cell phone is a SIM card-specific code assigned by the service provider. If you have entered an incorrect pin into your phone three times, the SIM card on your phone will lock and you will be unable to use your phone. An error message will appear asking you to "Enter PUK Code." The PUK code is available through your service provider.
Instructions
Don't try to guess your phone's PUK code. If you enter the wrong code three times, or sometimes five times depending on your phone type, you will end up with a completely locked SIM card that will need to be replaced.
Go to your online cell phone account. Log in with the username and password that are assigned to the account. Some providers include the PUK code along with the rest of your online account information.
Click on the "Phone" or "Device" option on your online account. The name of this section will vary by provider. When you click on this option, you will be taken to a section with information regarding your cell phone.
Look for an option to "Unblock SIM Card" or any other SIM card selection. Once the information regarding your SIM card opens, see if there is an "unblock" link. If your provider does have an "unblock" section, follow the instructions exactly to unblock your SIM card.
Call your provider. If the PUK code could not be found on the online account, you must get it directly from the customer service department of your cell phone provider. Be prepared to answer questions to confirm your identity, such as billing address or email address, and possibly provide them with the number on your SIM card. Once you have given proof of your identity, your provider will give you the PUK number. If possible, enter the PUK code into your cell while you are still on the phone with customer service. This will save you time if the code fails to work.

I do not know my PUK code for my samsung sgh-a797 and not the primary account holder - it should be the default code because i never changed it - what is that code


Your GSM phone uses a SIM card to store important user information such as your phone number and account details. You can protect your device from unauthorized use by enabling a unique security PIN code. This PIN must be entered correctly when powering on your phone or after going into standby mode. Multiple incorrect entries of a PIN will result in a locked SIM card. You'll need to enter in your PIN Unlock Key (PUK) to access the phone. Each SIM card has a different PUK code.
Contact your wireless carrier by calling its customer service number. Check a recent invoice if you're unsure of the phone number. You will need to verify your account details before the representative can give you your PUK code. Write down the code for future reference.

My kids have locked my phone and i can not unlock it . i called the 1800 number and they said to talk to you at lg


SIM pin code:
This is a pin code that locks the sim card until you enter the correct code. This protects your account, even
if your sim is put into another handset. To reset it, you need the PUK code:
Pin Unlock Code (PUK)
If you miss key (or forget) your SIM pin code, and enter the wrong one 3-5 times in a row, the SIM will lock up, and you’ll need to enter the PUK unlock code to release it. You should ask your Network Service Provider for this code when you need it. Don’t try to guess it, because after a few wrong guesses, the SIM card will be permanently disabled.
