Complete information :
The SIM card protects your subscription and not the phone from unauthorised users. If you change SIM cards you can still use your phone with a new SIM card. Most SIM cards are blocked at the time of purchase. If your SIM card lock is on you have to enter your PIN (Personal Identity Card) every time you turn on the phone.

If you enter the wrong password three times in a row the SIM card gets blocked. This is indicated by the message PIN Blocked To unblock this you need to enter your PUK

Note:

card (Personal Unblocking Key). Your PIN and PUK is supplied by your service provider. You can edit your PIN and select a new four to eight digit number

  • If the Message Codes do not match appears when you edit your PIN you entered the new PIN incorrectly.
  • If the message Wrong PIN followed by Old PIN appears then it means that you have entered the old PIN incorrectly.

To unblock your SIM card:
  1. When PIN Blocked appears enter your PUK > OK
  2. Enter a new four to eight PIN > OK
  3. Re-enter the new PIN to confirm > OK

To edit your PIN:
  1. > Settings > the General tab > Security > Locks > SIM Protection > Change PIN
  2. Enter your PIN > OK
  3. Enter a new four to eight digit PIN to confirm > OK

To turn the SIM card On /Off
  1. > Settings > the General tab > Security > Locks > SIM Protection > Protection and select On or Off
  2. Enter your PIN > OK

Dear Sir, Good Morning, I have small problem in my aircel sim, It is asking a PUK code, and my Telephone No.9710899389, it is in the name of R.Basker


If u enter the PIN code incorrectly more than two times it will be locked and ask for PUK code. Just note your 16 digit number behind your SIM. With that number you can call costumer care and receive the PUK code by telling the 16 digit number. Thanks, Kesav

Puk lock


Puk lock are from Sim cards not phone...

To unlock your Puk lock, first get your Sim park where you cut out the Sim card from.

Check on the Sim park you will see where they number on it..

when you turn on your phone and it request for Puk number, type in the Puk on your Sim park..

It will ask for a your Pin number. type in your Pin and it will request that you re-type your pin.

After typing it again, you can make use of your Sim card again.take care.

Locked my phone and forgot code w810i sony ericsson


Hi,

Try clearing pin code 0000 Manufacturer manual inside cover usually has factory settings Call operator for factory pin setting w/o manual

PUK code in PIN UNLOCKING CODE, which is required when you give PIN number wrongly for 3 times, so be careful with this
This code is OPERATOR specific and not phone specific and you have to call you operator and get PUk if PIN is blocked...

if you provide PUK code wrongly for 7 time, your PUK may be blocked and sim may become useless.
