This problem is very common and most users think that it's related to phone, which is not true, this is only with your sim card and is for security reason. We can't use software or hardware or other tricks or methods to unlock it, the only solution is from the Service Operator/Network Operator.
If you keep entering random codes/unknown numbers several times, your sim card will be rejected and will not be usable anymore.

Your only solution is to call the service provider (Network operator's customer care), ask them to give you your puk code, they'll promptly give it to you after few inquiries to make sure you are the true owner of the sim card. (there's no charge as well, and if you call from the same network' sim card to the customer care, you'll not spend/pay a penny).

There's no other alternatives, or no other options that you can get the code, so don't play around, rather make a call to the customer care of the sim card network operator and get the code.

I wish you good luck.

Thanks for using FixYa.

I NEED A PUK CODE BECAUSE I HAVE NO OTHER PHONE AROUND AT THE MOMENT


Hi, What your problem was? PUK or Phone security code... Actually, PUK refers on the simcard that you use... To unblock the PUK lock code, you can ask your telco services to get your PUK code... If you referring to phone security code, your can sent your phone for format at mobile services... For default nokia code, you can use "12345" if you didn't set any code otherwise you should go to mobile services to reset for you Other phone you can try "00000"... I hope it work... :)

Nokia N 70 - Error - 'Sim Card Rejected'


Hi,

IF you put PUK code many times depending on the model it wil lock the sim card. This is because to prevent unathorised person using your SIM card.

Default PIN code for nokia mobile is 0000
PUK code will be given by the service provider only.

Please call your service provider or go to service provider office,they will assist you in this issue.And they will have a security check like name,Phone number and other information to check weather the SIM card belongs to you only.Then they will assit you.

Thanx

PUK code nokia N70


PUK is an acronym for Pin Unblocking Key. It is associated directly with your SIM card and the security of the phone (like setting up a password, etc).

Most commonly, a phone will prompt you for this code when you go through the security settings2_bing.gif and select that you would like to have your phone password protected. The phone will then ask you to enter the PUK code, giving you only a few chances before it will display "PUK blocked". (If you phone says "PUK blocked" right now, call your service provider (AT&T, T-Mobile, etc) to get a free one and save yourself $25)

The PUK code is not anything you have created. Do not try generic codes like 0000 or 1234. It is an eight digit, factory defaulted series of random numbers.

To get the code and to avoid breaking your SIM card2_bing.gif and having to purchase another, immediately contact your service provider (AT&T, T-Mobile, etc) and they will give you the code in less than five minutes.

Nokia 5320 Security Code


HI,

You have to type in security code of your phone in order to log into the phone....
By default the security code is 12345 and if you have changed it, you must be knowing....

To remove the lock code.. Navigate to MENU->SETTINGS->SECRUITY->LOCK and remove all locks, if it asks for secuirt code, provide it

  • BUT IF YOU WERE NOT ABLE TO GET INTO THE MOBILE WITH THE 12345 OR IF YOU FORGET THE SECURITYCODE, the one and the only way is to flash the mobile phone(ie, reinstalling the firmware), this cant be done by the normal person, u have to take the phone to nearest service center and flash it, they may charge u very minimal amount......
CAUTION: You may looase all the content stored in the phpne memory, be careful
