Simlock means it is network locked. in other words, unless it is unlocked, you will not be able to use it on any other network apart from that original one probably a Japan network. the good news is that most models can be unked these days, you just have to take it to an unlock shop.

Why my sim card showing emergency call only


You may have accidentally called 911 and hung up. You have to call 911 back simply explain that you made a mistake and they'll remove it from your phone through your number. Another reason would be that you either have a sim locked phone from your service provider and there is a different sim card from another service provider installed. You'll have to unlock the phone. OR your phone is locked for security reasons. A person can easily lock the phone in settings and apply a password to unlock the screen to access the phone. All of the above will give you the sceen you decribed.

PUK stands for Personal Unblocking Key. This is a uniqueeight-digit code specific to your SIM card. This is required when the PINnumber to unlock your mobile phone is entered incorrectly 3 times. You are thengiven 10 attempts to enter your PUK code. If an incorrect PUK code is enteredafter the 10th attempt, you will block your SIM card permanently and willrequire a new SIM card from your mobile phone provider.
PUK codes can be obtained through the following ways - The PUK code is in your SIM card documentation Starter Pack.If you do not have this then -Please contact your phone service provider.
Your cell phone service provider can give you the PUK code once you give themyour account details and they have confirmed your identity.
