Hi,

As you have reported your old cell as lost, it has become deactivated. The only way to get it activated is to contact the service provider and let them know.There is no second option of getting it activated.

If you has been in US or UK, and you might have reported the cellphone as lost and then tried to use the old set ( to get insurance benefit and new phone ), you might had to pay a huge compensation for the same. This is illegal.

Let me know,if needed further assistance.

Hope i helped you.

Thanks for using ' Fixya ' and have a nice day!!

Here is what you need to know.
PUKs, or personal unblocking keys, are used to unblock a mobile phone which becomes blocked. Mobile phones may become blocked when a PIN (personal identification number) is entered incorrectly on three consecutive occasions. In some instances, the phone may become blocked, which requires a PUK to unblock it, and in other instances, the SIM (Subscriber Identity Module) card itself becomes blocked and again will require a PUK to unblock it. Mobile phones are also blocked when they are reported stolen and if there is an outstanding payment on the account. It is important to differentiate between unblocking phones (using a PUK) and unlocking mobile phones (using another type of code). NOTE: It is a criminal offence for anyone to attempt to unblock a mobile phone, other than the network provider who put the block on the phone. If your phone has become blocked by mistake, for example you have entered the PIN incorrectly on three consecutive occasions, then you need to contact the mobile phone network operator with your details. To explain a little more, specific to your mobile phone network, You need to go to your Service providers, web site & navigate your way to the specific PUK details for your mobile phone network operator. Usually you have to Register your phone to get a PUK code.

Nesecito desbloquear mi samsung a197 me pide codigo desbloqueo


http://www.foneszone.co.uk/unlock/how_to/Samsung/A197.php
Understand the meaning of unlocking a mobile If you put another simcard into your Samsung A197 phone and it does not allow you make calls with it, then your Samsung A197 is simlocked. If your A197 phone is "simlocked" when you put an alternative network simcard in your phone it could show "enter correct sim", "enter subsidy password", "wrong sim", "incorrect sim" or similar. If you want to use your A197 phone with another simcard then you will need to unlock your phone. There are some small considerations you need to make sure before you start such as simcard compatibility and making sure that your phone is definately "locked" not "blocked" there is a distinct difference! Is your Samsung A197 Locked or Blocked? A locked Samsung A197 means that your Samsung A197 phone ONLY accepts simcard from the network it was purchased with. This is easy to solve, we can supply codes that can fully "unlock" your Samsung A197 phone to all networks. This means that your Samsung A197 phone can then be used on ANY chosen network in any compatible country, WORLDWIDE. Alternatively a Blocked phone is a phone that has been reported lost or stolen, and has been blocked by the network for use. These phones are unusable and there is no way around this. Unblocking a phone is ILLEGAL and we offer no service for this.

I put in a sim card 3g from another phone but all it says is no service all the time...


thus your simcard work on other phone?

If it thus well then the phone where you are trying to put your sim card might be lock to a single network, all you need to do is have your phone be openline or unlock to a network, is that case you can access you phone on all different kind of network or simcard.

It can be done thru a service center or cellphone repair shop, their gonna use special flashing tools and software.
