FixYa does not sell mobile phones nor are we affiliated with Vodafone. I suggest you take the phone back to the store where you purchased the phone and get them to unlock the phone.

OR try this -

To get the security code/restriction code to unlock the cell phone from the current cell phone provider so you can use it with a different phone provider, Please click on this link and follow my instructions :-

If your phone provider does not help you then this WEB site it provides security codes for a small price.

Mobile not supporting indian sim


What is your mobile model?Have you tried the mobile with other Indian sim cards?If you still get the same error then I think your phone is locked with a Saudi Arabian network.You need to unlock it...otherwise it wouldn't accept other networks.You can approach third party unlocking services like Unlock-zone.com and by specifying the mobile make,model,country and network to which the mobile is locked to you will be able to get the unlock service along with free unlock instructions.Once unlocked you will be able to use the phone with Indian sim cards.
If the phone works with other Indian simcards without unlocking then may be there is a problem with the sim card that you are using now.Approach the network provider and get a new sim.

How do i unlock my sim card to use it in a new


Mobile phone manufacturers make GSM phones with a SIM lock, a built-in capability to restrict the use of these phones to specific countries and network providers. In this way, phones can be locked to only accept SIM cards from a specific country, network or service provider, or only a particular SIM type. In fact, most mobile phones are shipped with country and network provider locks these days. Unlock SIM card. It is now either mandatory or voluntary for the provider to unlock the SIM card of the customer. Still, some providers are reluctant on doing it even after a customer has fulfilled their service contract. A few others will unlock the SIM card of a customer only if he/she has an active account in good standing for at least 90 days. Some network providers charge a fee for releasing the unlock code. Unlocking laws vary from country to country. For example, in Belgium, networks are not allowed to sell locked handsets. In The Netherlands, providers must provide unlocking codes, but are permitted to charge a fee for this during the first 12 months after purchase. The Hong Kong government does not allow networks to sell locked mobile phones, though the restriction does not apply to some PDA phone models, such as those offered by BlackBerry. In the US, unlocking is now legal. Unlock SIM card and special codes. You can unlock a handset by entering a special code, or in some cases, over-the-air by the carrier. In most cases, a locked phone will display a message if a restricted SIM is used, asking for the unlock code. The code needed for removing all SIM locks from a phone is called the master code or network code key. The phone itself verifies the unlock code, which is either stored in a database or calculated with the help of a complex mathematical formula supplied by the provider.

Yes this is the ping pong senario vodophone say it Samsung who have information and vis versa. I believe I would email support@dynamicmarketinguk.co.uk, they charge £3.99 paypal or credit card, but it will cost you this in phone calls if you are not careful nevermind your time, they are honest and refund you immediately if they cannot unlock your mobile. Takes an hour. Good luck

PUK QUERY K530i


PUK means "personal unlocking key" .

The PUK code is asked if you enter a wrong pin 3 times.

You need to call your phone service company, they can retrieve the puk code from a database for free.

In your case you need to contact ASDA technical support to unlock the SIM.


The PIN and PUK are related to the SIM card, not to the phone.

If you replace the SIM card with a different one, then the phone should not ask for the PUK anymore.

SIM Cards and Unlocking your Phone What is a SIM?

Subscriber Identity Module (SIM): A smart card containing the telephone number of the customer, encoded network identification details such as: Call Forwarding, Caller ID, etc., the PIN, and other user data such as the phone book. T-Mobile customers can move their SIM card from any T-Mobile branded phone to any other T-Mobile branded phone without the need to contact Customer Service to activate the new phone. Your rate plan and phone number will follow your SIM to the new phone.

SIM Error Messages:

  • Invalid SIM: This error means that the SIM you have inserted into your phone is either inactive or is not compatible with our service. You may purchase a new SIM card from a T-Mobile retail location. Locate a T-Mobile retail store near you.
  • Insert SIM: Your SIM is either not inserted in your phone or is inserted improperly. Please remove and re-insert your SIM card. If you continue to receive this error message, your SIM card or phone may be defective. You may take your phone and SIM to a T-Mobile retail store for further assistance and a free SIM card replacement if necessary. Locate a T-Mobile retail store near you.
  • Unregistered SIM: This error may occur if your SIM card is not fully activated or if the SIM card registered to your account is different than the SIM you have in your phone. For assistance with this issue, please contact Customer Service.
  • SIM Not Ready: This error occurs when you have just powered your phone and is due to the phone not being fully initialized. Please wait a few moments before accessing your phonebook or placing a call.
  • OTA OK: This message is displayed when your phone receives a network update, phonebook download, or an Over-The-Air t-zones or Picture Messaging configuration. NOTE: These messages are free of charge and will not be billed to your account or pulled from any text message bucket.
  • Enter PUK: These errors can occur if you have entered your SIM PIN three times incorrectly. If you receive this error message, please contact Customer Service for a PIN Unblocking Key (PUK) to restore access to your phone.
  • Check card, Card Blocked See Supplier, Blocked, SIM Blocked, or Contact Card/Service Provider: These errors may occur if you have entered your PUK ten times incorrectly. If these errors display your SIM is unusable and you will need to purchase a new SIM card. You may purchase a new SIM card from a T-Mobile retail location. Locate a T-Mobile retail store near you.
SIM PIN:

A SIM PIN can be used to prevent access to your phone. When enabled, your phone will prompt you for the SIM PIN when the phone is powered on. Entering the wrong PIN will prevent you from making or receiving calls. SIM PINs are different from a Security Code that your phone may use to secure other phone functions. Please check your phone’s manual for further security details.

T-Mobile SIM PIN numbers are set to default values before purchase. If you change your SIM PIN, it is recommended that you keep record of the new PIN in a safe location. T-Mobile cannot retrieve a lost or forgotten SIM PINs.
  • SIM PIN1: 1234
  • SIM PIN2: 5678 (Only available on select phones)
SIM Unlock:

T-Mobile branded phones operating on the T-Mobile network may only use T-Mobile SIM cards. To use a T-Mobile branded phone on another wireless carrier's network with a non-T-Mobile SIM card, you must first request a "SIM Unlock" code from T-Mobile. Conversely, if you have a phone from another North American wireless carrier, you may need to request a "SIM Unlock" code from that carrier before being able to use a T-Mobile SIM card on the T-Mobile network.

SIM Unlock Requests:

T-Mobile customers must meet the following eligibility requirements before contacting Customer Service to request your SIM Unlock code.

The following restrictions apply to all account types:
  • T-Mobile can provide SIM Unlock Codes only for handsets sold by T-Mobile USA, with the exception of Danger Sidekick devices. T-Mobile can obtain SIM Unlock Codes for companies acquired by t-Mobile USA (VoiceStream, Aerial, Omnipoint, SOL, Digiph, PCS One, and Powertel).
  • SIM Unlock Codes will only be provided after your account has been active for 90 days. Only one unlock code may be provided per customer every 90 days.
  • No SIM Unlock Codes will be provided within the 14-Day Buyer's Remorse period. Customers who purchase phones in CA California or via Amazon.com are granted a 30-Day Buyer's Remorse Period.
  • SIM Unlock Codes are not always available from the Manufacturer. However, T-Mobile will make a dedicated effort to obtain the SIM Unlock code. Note: Other restrictions may apply depending on account type.
Goodluck

T mobile wing unlock code


Call your cell phone carriers customer service and they may email you the unlock code and instruction for free within 24-48 hours. Tmobile did this for me several times on different phones. Tmobile will send you the unlock code and instructions via email for free for their customers within 24-48 hrs. But you have to call their customer service (US) 800-937-8997. I tried emailing them initially but no response. When I called they were so accomodating and didnt even ask why I wanted the phone unlocked.
Once they send you the code its simply inputting the code they provide. However to do this you must first put in a non tmoile sim. As far as I know this is only cingular or a foreign pay as you go sim card. Luckily I had a foreign sim that I saved on a prior trip as I have other unlocked phones and this worked for me. None of my friends had cingular so I could not use their Sim to do the unlock code on my phone. Nextel, Sprint and I think Verizon also dont use sim cards.
Alot of cell phone stores and kiosks will also unlock any cell phone for you for about $30.00. You may have to leave the phone with them and pick it up later like an hour or two later if they are busy.
