WHAT IS THE MASTER CODE FOR ALL PHONES?


There isn't one!

if there was, every thieving toe-rag would have a field day. User set pass codes can only open the phone with the correct code as set by the user. PUK codes because some thieving toe-rag has already thieved the phone can only be generated by the cellphone carrier after verifying security questions that the phone belongs to the person asking. Trying a code wrong 3 times locks the phone, 10 wrong times locks the SIM card and requires a new one to be sent. Both require the PUK Code from the carrier.

These directions are for an AT and T phone, but other than that, are the same for any carrier. 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 phone carrier to unlock your SIM card. You can obtain your phone's PUK code from your carrier in one of these ways: Log in to Your account.online Use a Technical Support Chat Contact your carriers Customer Care Get Your Phone's PUK Code Online Go to the Phone/Device page. From the My Phone/Device screen, select the Unblock SIM Card link under the My Make & Model heading. The Unblock SIM screen will display your PUK code and will give you instructions for unblocking your SIM Card. 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 PUK code 10 times in a row, your SIM card will be invalidated, and you will need to purchase a new SIM Card.

I have an LG Sentio and I do not know what my PUK code is, now my phone is locked and I can only do emergency calls.


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 AT&T to unlock your SIM card.

You can obtain your phone's PUK code from AT&T by:
To get your phone's PUK code online:
  1. Log in to your myWireless Account.
  2. Select My Services under My Account.
  3. From the My Services screen, select My Phone/Device.
  4. Select Unblock SIM Card.
  5. 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.

Hope this helps-
