Question about Cell Phones

1 Answer

I was playing with my phone settings and put a lock on messaging when you go to phone settings in the menu. Well, it asked for a pin code, so i put one and then decided i wouldn't remember it, so i tried to go back and change it. It asked me "New Pin" and "Confirm Pin", so i did both of those. Then i put an option for locking my phone. I did the same pin as before, then locked my phone. When i tried unlocking it, it asked for my PUK code, and i have no idea what it is. I have 1 more attempt left to get it right, and i don't know what it is so I'm leaving it. I turned it off and on, and it's still stuck. I don't know what the PUK code is, so please help.

    I'm only 14 (hence the fail phone issues), so i can't really pay for questions online. I know my parents won't either. We're going to try the AT

    Sorry, I did not know that. It's getting to the point everything cost something. What used to be free as dirt, now cost a dollar. Stay in school, come back here when you need help with your home work. get as good an education as you possibly can then, get into politics and change our world. Make a goal and stick to it.

I can't change my security code hw can i change it ? it is 12345 the dafualt one , and i want to change it how ?


I suggest you leave the security code alone, it is used to clear the phone call logs etc.
I recommend to put a pin code on the SIM card to lock your phone's keyboard. When you open your phone or unlock the keypad to access the phone's menu etc. then you need to enter the 4 digit pin code. This also prevents anyone accessing your phone unless they have this pin code.

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

as youve entered the puk code, it asks for the new pin code, the default code was 1234 right? so if you are going to try the new pin code yu can either invent a new pin code or just enter the default code.
