Have correct puk code but phone will not unlock

I entered the correct pin for my Blackberry but it kept saying it was wrong so now I am onto the puk number (10 goes left). I know the puk number so I have entered it but it does not accept anything when I press enter. I can only get bck to the front screen by pressing back. Otherwise the screen just shows **** even though I have pressed enter. It could be a number lock problem? The screen shos SOS in the corner and the phone is not working. Any ideas?

SOS, means the wireless is not on, or your on emgency calls, if you enter the wrong password 10 times, your phone will be erased.

Try pressing * then the call key and entering again.

Dear:


Your phone will ask for PUK code when you entered the PIN code wrongly several times depending upon the mobile make. The mobile asks for PUK code so that unauthorized persons do not use your mobile for wrong cause.
To get PUK code please contact your service provider through phone or go directly to their office. They will provide you the PUK code for your mobile. The PUK code for mobile phone.so that you can open your phone. When you planning to call your service provider you cannot use your mobile as it is fully locked. Please use some other mobile with same network to call your service provider.
While you get the PUK code ,the service provider customer care officer will ask for your personal details to check whether the mobile belongs to you only. If they are satisfied with your answers they will provide with the PUK code
DONOT enter the PUK code several times wrongly,It will block your sim card permanently.
This PUK code is FREE. You no need to pay any sum to get the PUK code
Thank You.

I am tryint to use my phone in a different country, i have payed and got my correct unlock code but before that i have used up my attempts and now its zero, how do i get back my attempts wihtout going into...


Usually mobile phones does not work properly in other countries if they are not unlocked properly. For that purpose, you can get your blackberry unlocked from a vendor whose codes work efficiently and are highly reliable. I would recommend to try Blackberry Unlocking Codes with IMEI because they are fast and cost effective and works anywhere around the globe. You can unlock your blackberry torch here.

If you log onto your companys website under your account and go to the option that says devices you can get the puk code- If you enter in too many numbers it will permanently block your sim card and you will have to buy a new sim card from your cell phone company- they are about $20

PUK code


The Puk number depends on the pin lock on the sim, the phone will still work with a different Sim card.

To unlock the Puk code you need to call the contact number for the service provider for your Sim. Alternatively you can unlock the PUK code at a local shop for a small fee, £10 or £20 in UK.

To unlock PUK, call the company that branded your Sim card.

For example , f you are in UK, and have lost vodafone or Orange pin, and puk code kicked in, then contact is below.


Vodafone Contact us

Vodafone UK - Contact us

use google to find contact number for your sim card fone company in your area. That is the only way to unlock PUK for free, and it always work.

I've tired to set the PIN code for my Nokia 6085 phone but I cannot. I've entered the PUK code but now it says, "Enter new PIN code:" What do I do? I've entered a code I wanted and other ones on my...


HOLD ON!
You may enter wrong PIN three (3) times only. After that your PIN will be blocked! To unblock, you need PUK. You can only enter wrong PUK ten (10) times. (This is as documented) After entering correct PUK, you will be asked for NEW PIN.

So, when it says "PIN blocked. Enter PUK code", you must enter the PUK. If you correctly enter the PUK, it will asked for new PIN, by asking "Enter new PIN code:". Enter anything you want as your PIN. You will be asked to enter it twice (two times).
From what I read from your post, you have done correctly, but you don't want to enter new PIN. There is no way SIM card/phone will use old PIN. The device doesn't know your PIN. So, you have to enter new PIN.
