Question about Phones

6 Answers

I had "No Service" for the signal, when I spoke with AT&T iPhone service he suggested to go and get a new Sim card. When I bought the Sim card they also installed it. That did not work, so I now went to iTunes and hit the restore button. I have no idea if I have service or anything, because when the phone asked me for my Sim Pin I assumed it was my old pin. Now it says I need a PUK number and I have no clue what to put in. Please help quick as my cell phone is my business. David Feldott cell phone 630 363-3997, but I now can only be reached at my home 630 305-9413 Thankyou

PUK code is SIM card specific. In most cases, if the PUK is locked, you will have to replace the SIM itself. However, the only people who can unlock the PUK is the service provider themselves.
You will have to contact them, and after they verify your account, they will assist you to unlock it.

Unfortunately, there is no other way..

First see the following website about this problem and look for your specific problem as I don't know how many times you may have tried to enter the PUK.

http://www.querycat.com/faq/73d714166ec8234081192965f17f75fa


Please let me know the exact information that it is asking for because it may be different depending on how many times you tried entering the number. Too many times may cause the Sim card to be unusable

    The Personal Unblocking Key (PUK) is an eight-digit code that is required to unblock your phone when you have entered the incorrect PIN ten times. It is located on the back of the SIM cardholder. All phones have a different set of procedures for unblocking and you will need to consult the manual for your GSM mobile phone when this occurs. Should an incorrect PUK be entered ten times in a row, the SIM will be permanently disabled. You may need to purchase a new SIM if yours is disabled

To get the puk code you need to call your service provider.

Posted on Jun 12, 2008

  • Ekse Jun 12, 2008

    the pin code is sim card spesific the card most likely had a pin code of 0000 or something similiar default code.

  • Ekse Jun 12, 2008

    exactly what coolguy said, the other two experts seem to be misguided, the only way to get your puk code is to contact your service provider. people at your service can solve all these problems with you and are trained to do so. Just call them they have all the information there.

How can I turn off the busy signal on my phone?


Check your iPhone settings
  1. Turn airplane mode on and off. Tap Settings > Enable Airplane Mode, wait five seconds, then turn airplane mode off.
  2. Check your Do Not Disturb settings. Tap Settings > Do Not Disturb.
  3. Check for any blocked phone numbers. Tap Settings > Phone > Blocked.
  4. See if Call Forwarding is turned on. Tap Settings > Phone > Call Forwarding.
Update your software
  1. Check for a carrier settings update.
  2. Check for an iOS software update. Some updates might require a Wi-Fi connection.
Remove and reinsert your SIM card If your iPhone has a SIM card, remove the SIM card, then reinsert it. Update your Preferred Roaming List (PRL) The PRL determines the cellular towers that your iPhone uses for cell service and selects those with the best signal strength.
  • If you're on the Verizon network, dial *228 and select option 2.
  • If you're on the Sprint network, dial ##873283#.
Contact your carrier When you contact your carrier, check the following:
  • Your account is set up to use your iPhone.
  • There aren't any localized service outages.
  • Your account doesn't have a billing-related block.
  • Your calls don't have errors on the carrier system.
Check your network settings
  1. Reset your network settings. Tap Settings > General > Reset > Reset Network Settings. This will erase all current saved settings, including Wi-Fi passwords, preferred networks, and VPN settings.
  2. Try to make or receive calls in another location.
  3. Switch to a different network band. Tap Settings > Cellular and turn off Enable LTE, 4G, or 3G (this option will depend on your carrier and device model).
Still can't make or receive calls? If you still can't make or receive calls, restore your iPhone as new.If restoring doesn't fix the issue, contact Apple Support or take your iPhone to an Apple Retail Store or Authorized Service Provider.

  1. Dear, Sim card registration failure happens in only 3 cases:
  2. Your number is temporariy disconnected by the service provider. Either u asked the service provider to disconnect or put it in safe custody (customer driven), or the service cut off the services due to over-due payment on this number or any other number under the same name and address (service provider driven)
  3. The number is permanently disconnected. It means the number is lost, and will go to recycle bin for some 2 to 5 months, before its re-issued again in the market. 03. The PUK entered incorrectly for 10 times, and the SIM card is now blocked. You need to purchase a new SIM card. All your previous details in the SIM card stand cancelled

My phone is saying emergencey call only


you really need to say WHAT PHONE YOU HAVE (iPhone? Samsung?) and you should also say what service you have (AT&T? Verizon?) But in general, that message means that the phone has no record of you paying for phone service. Do you have a valid SIM card inserted? Are you making your payments to your service provider?

I need a puk code please urgently


Hi,
Let me give you a little background and then some solutions. This generic because I don't know your carrier. I've used ATT as an example.
Phones are naturally unlocked, but a service provider might lock them
When originally manufactured, all GSM cell phones are unlocked. That is, they can be used with any SIM from any cellphone service provider - always assuming, of course, that the cellphone service provider has compatible GSM service on the same frequency bands that the phone can operate on.
Most cell phone service providers electronically 'lock' the phone so that it can only be used with their service. There are obvious reasons why they choose to do this - in particular, to force you to pay what are usually very high roaming charges when you take your phone out of their network and use it elsewhere in the world.
Fortunately, this locking is reversible. With some phones, it is possible to simply enter an unlocking password code into the phone and it is immediately then unlocked. Other phones need to be connected up to a special unlocking data terminal.
Your phone has to be unlocked by the carrier. LG, Motorala, Sony Ericsson, Nokia and most of their ilk, will not give consumers the unlock codes but don't despair.
A PUK (PIN Unlock Key) code is required to unlock SIM cards that have become locked following three successive incorrect PIN entries. If your SIM card becomes locked, you will need to get a PUK code from your carrier. For example, if you have AT&T to unlock your SIM card, you can obtain your phone's PUK code from AT&T by:
  • logging in to your myWireless Account online
  • using their Technical Support Chat
  • calling Customer Care at 1-800-331-0500
To get your phone's PUK code online from ATT:
  • Log in to your myWireless Account.
  • Select My Services under My Account.
  • From the My Services screen, select My Phone/Device.
  • Select Unblock SIM Card.
  • The Unblock SIM screen will display your PUK code.
Once you receive your PUK code, you will need to enter it into your phone to set a new PIN code. Note: If you enter the wrong ATT PUK code 10 times in a row, your SIM card will be invalidated, and you will need to purchase a new SIM Card. The phone will display the following error: "PUK blocked call operator." There are three other ways to unlock a phone:
  • The carrier will unlock the phone for you at one of its retail outlets;
  • You can do it yourself by clicking on this link Free Unlock Codes ,
  • Pay $3.89 at the following website: www.theunlockshack.com/.

I trust that this is helpful and solves your problem. All the best

Foget puk number


Few people use PIN locking system to lock their phone to avoid un-authorised access. Though this is a good option, it pisses you off sometime. Three wrong entry of PIN code will result in SIM blocking. Once SIM gets blocked, phone starts asking PUK code to enter. If you again enter wrong code for three times, SIM gets completely blocked. You have to walk into your service provider outlet to get a replacement SIM card. PUK code is a SIM specific code assigned by your service provider. No way you can guess & enter it. So, when it asks for the PUK code, don?t do anything, get the PUK code from your service provider. Airtel has a easier way of getting PUK code. For getting PUK code of a Airtel number, send PUKPhoneNumber to toll free number 121. You can make use of any other Airtel number to send this message since your SIM might have been blocked already. If the above method doesn?t works or your service provider is not Airtel, call to customer care using any other mobile phone which uses the same service provider. They will ask some details about you to make sure you are the owner of the SIM card. Questions might include your billing address, email ID, numbers you recently called or messaged etc. They might even ask you number printed on the SIM card, so be prepared with all details before calling them. Once you get the PUK code, enter it into the phone & your phone will return to normal.

Need my puk code


puk code, personal unlocking key. It is sim card related / specific, if you take the sim card out from the phone, the phone will work with another sim card.

The puk comes up when the pin code has been entered wrong 3 times. To get the puk code for your sim card, you have to call the service provider of that sim card. They are the only ones who can provide you with the right puk code for that sim card.

The puk code may also have came with the documentation of the sim card, if its a prepaid card the puk code comes on the documents or on the box of the product.

if your unable to obtain the puk code, get a new sim card.

also entering the puk code wrong too many times will eventually ruin the sim card forcing you to buy or contact your service provider for a new sim card.

There are no puk code calculators or anything that we can do about it, you can buy premium assistance and you will get this same response. Theres no other solution.

You have to contact the phone service provider of that sim card or replace the sim card.

Can't help you even if you paid.
