Question about LG Shine KE970 Cellular Phone

PUK Blocked? I had a problem where it started asking for my security code- when i have never used one. So i looked in my manual and it says use 0000, well i did (10 times to be specific) and it locked me out of my phone. it says PUK Blocked on the screen, and the only thing i can do is call 911 and turn the phone on and off. What do i do to get my phone back?

Yeah i had the same problem. Apparantly LG or ATT is too dumb to put this in the manual but you need to call your phone service to get the PUK code. You did it too many times, like me. And now that you PUK is blocked you need to go to your nearest phone service provider and get a new sim card.

My sim card is PUK blocked and rejected, can I replace it by a new sim card having the same mobile number?


Yes you can use your mobile by inserting another sim card,but first you should know the security code.After just you have inserted the new sim your phone will automatically ask you to enter security.So, if you don't know the security code only one time (once) you can enter 0000 and in case if the 0000 doesn't help quickly contact mobile repairing shop.If you enter wrong security code repeatedly again it will ask you to enter PUK.So, for better result do what i said.

Tip

Getting PUK code


Normally for NOKIA mobiles, the default PIN code is 0000.

When you initially starting to use your mobile,your PIN code wil be '0000' and after you can go to 'access codes' to change the PIN code as you want.

Security code is 12345

For MOTOROLA mobiles, the default PIN code is 1234.
security code is 000000

For SONY ERICSON mobiles, the default PIN code is 0000


As you set up a new PIN code and if you forget your pin code and you already entered your wrong PIN code 3 times ,then this may lock your phone and it wil ask for a 'PUK code'.

If it asks for the PUK code please call your service provider and they wil give you the PUK code.

NOTE:You cannot call from your mobile as your mobile is fully locked. please use any other mobile to call the service providers.

Before giving the PUK code they wil ask for your informations to cross check with the Data base that they have. please give the correct information to them,if they are not satisfied with the information given by you, they may refuse to give you the PUK code.

thanx

PUK code request or PUK block error code


PUK is an acronym for Pin Unblocking Key. It is associated directly with your SIM card and the security of the phone (like setting up a password, etc).

Most commonly, a phone will prompt you for this code when you go through the security settings and select that you would like to have your phone password protected. The phone will then ask you to enter the PUK code, giving you only a few chances before it will display "PUK blocked". (If you phone says "PUK blocked" right now, call your service provider (AT&T, T-Mobile, etc) to see if you will need a new SIM)

The PUK code is not anything you have created. Do not try generic codes like 0000 or 1234. It is an eight digit, factory defaulted series of random numbers.

To get the code and to avoid breaking your SIM card and having to purchase another, immediately contact your service provider (AT&T, T-Mobile, etc) and they will provide you with the code right away (as long as you can verify the account).

I bought one SAMSUNg SGH-J700i. When I am trying to poweron the phone it asks for Phone lock password which is 1234 and opened but immediatly it asks for SIM loack password. But I am not awrae of any SIM...


If u enter PIN code incorrectly 3 times, PIN will be blocked n phone will ask you for PUK(Personal Unblocking Key). This is a 8 digit code. If u enter Incorrect PUK for 10 times Your SIM will be lock permanently.

Your cell phone service provider can(Call from other no. n ask tell them for puk of ur no.) give you the PUK code aft3r answering simple security question.
Later enter PUK than enter new PIN, confirm new pin. Go to -Setting
-Security
-SIM lock
-off
Disable SIM n Later Phone Lock
PS:(You have to block your PIN to get access to PUK,
Default PIN- 0000, 12345)

Sony ericsson w580i turn on it asks for lock code 4-8 characters. i have tried all the combinations 0000-00000000, 1111-11111111,1234-12345678, 0123-01234567,reverse


To activate the phone lock protection:
  1. Select Menu > Settings > General (tab).
  2. Select Security > Locks > Phone protection.
  3. Select Protection > On.
  4. Enter the default phone lock code "0000".
To change the phone lock code:
  1. Select Menu > Settings > General (tab).
  2. Select Security > Locks > Phone protection.
  3. Select Change code and follow the instructions.

However IF it is to do with your PUK code see below..
PUKs, or personal unblocking keys, are used to unblock a mobile phone which becomes blocked. Mobile phones may become blocked when a PIN (personal identification number) is entered incorrectly on three consecutive occasions. In some instances, the phone may become blocked, which requires a PUK to unblock it, and in other instances, the SIM (Subscriber Identity Module) card itself becomes blocked and again will require a PUK to unblock it. Mobile phones are also blocked when they are reported stolen and if there is an outstanding payment on the account. It is important to differentiate between unblocking phones (using a PUK) and unlocking mobile phones (using another type of code). NOTE: It is a criminal offence for anyone to attempt to unblock a mobile phone, other than the network provider who put the block on the phone. If your phone has become blocked by mistake, for example you have entered the PIN incorrectly on three consecutive occasions, then you need to contact the mobile phone network operator with your details. To explain a little more, specific to your mobile phone network, You need to go to your Service providers, web site & navigate your way to the specific PUK details for your mobile phone network operator. Usually you have to Register your phone to get a PUK code.

Sony ericsson w91oi blocked pin, need PUK code last night i forgot my pin, and entered the wrong one three times, i now know my pin but i have no more attempts and i need the PUK code to unlock my phone,...


Hi, If you forget the security code, you get this error.. The default security code for nokia is 12345 If you forgot you can generate master code using your IMEI, which can be viewed by pressing *#06# .
If your handset asks for PUK code, you need to contact the service provider and provide them 20 digit sim number for the PUK code .
Service provider numbers will be toll free.
Once you get the PUK code, enter it . And then it will ask for new PIN number, you need to enter 0000 twice. I hope this information will be helpfull to you

Security codee


If its asking for your SIM pin code, its 0000 (four zeros). If its asking for your PUK code, you'll have to call your carrier. If its saying PUK blocked, you need a new SIM.
If its any other code, you'll have to take it in to a repair center and have it reflashed.

Reset security code 3110c


security code has nothing to do with IMEE number. A word of caution if you try to change security code 3 times your puk will be blocked and you won't be able to use your sim for anything. Nokia keeps security code as 0000 So just go to settings and then security and when prompted give 0000 if it accepts well and good you get the option of change security pin change it to desiered pin. if not don't try to change your code or else your PUK will be blocked and you will have to make a long call to your customer care from your friends mobile.
