with your pin you unlock the sim card. After you miss typed the pin wrong 3 times in a row, you need the PUK. Both were delivered with the sim or the phone were the sim is in. Look i the box where your phone came in. Most of the time the paper with both numbers are kept there.
You didn't save them to your SIM card on your old phone. If you take your old phone & your new phone into a store you can ask them to switch the contacts over & they should be able to do it right then in there in just a few minutes.
Sometimes a SIM card can come loose in the back of the phone. Take off the back of the phone and take out the battery. Locate the SIM card. It's normally white and rectangle. Pull it out and then push it back and and make sure it is tight.
Put the battery back in and let it boot up and see what happens.
If it doesn't work, it sounds like you need a new SIM card, so you will have to go to your carrier.
Hello, Replacing the phone is not the solution to the problem with the phone, so do not be scared, you will still be having your phone but run through this information below to be able check and solve the problem with the phone.
First you need to check if it is the phone that is faulty or the sim card, to know if it is the phone, try out another sim card in it, if it reads the sim card then you know that the problem is from the sim you put in, then you either get a sim swap for replacement or you get a new sim card.
But if it does not read the sim card, then you need to understand that the phones sim card carrier is bad and the solution to that is for you to try pad the back of the sim card on the sim card carrier, or have the phone disassembled then solder a little lead on the sim carrier so it will make proper contact with the sim card and read it.
First, make sure you have the SIM inserted in the phone correctly. If
you do - and the phone still doesn't recognize the SIM card - you may
need to replace the SIM card.
This is a common problem with some
phones especially when the SIM has been transferred from one phone to
Just about the only way to correct it is to replace the
SIM card with a new one.
You can purchase one on eBay for a few
dollars instead of paying $25 at a retail outlet. Once you receive it,
carefully pop it out of the card it is attached to and correctly insert
it into your phone.
Put in your battery and turn your phone ON.
You should see a 'No Service' message on the screen. If you do, then
your phone can now recognize the new SIM card.
Look on the larger
card you removed the SIM from and get the SIM number from the card.
Then call your service provider and inform them you have replaced a
defective SIM card with a new one in your phone. Give them the new SIM
card number and in less than 1-minute your phone will be working again.
When it does, the message on the screen will change from 'No
Service' to the name of your cellular provider.
This is not a big issue, what you need to do is to just upgrade the OS of your handset, actually your current OS is corrupt either due to some malfunctioning or due to some file you have tried to download from the web. Just simply check the latest OS available and replace it with your current one. I hope your issue will be resolved after doing this.
