When i have locked my phone they ask pin code incorrect enter pin code so what i do a

If your SIM card is PIN locked, the network unlock code is useless. The network unlock code allows a phone that is restricted to a single carrier to be unlocked for use in other carrier's networks.
The SIM PIN is a personal identification number that is used to unlock the SIM card in order to register it to the network. This means that the phone will not connect to the network before a SIM is unlocked. Usually (at least around here) a new SIM has a simple PIN, like 0000 or 1234, and the user can change this. However, the carrier doesn't know your PIN, so if you forget it it can't be reset from the carrier directly.
If you happen to forget your PIN, the only way to unlock the SIM is to enter a wrong PIN enough many times (3 or 5 usually), and after this the SIM asks for the PUK (Personal Unlock Key) code, which is sometimes referred to as PUK1.
The PUK code can be obtained from the carrier, after they verify you are the rightful owner of the SIM and contract. If the SIM is a prepaid, the PUK code is sometimes printed in the card holder. After you get the PUK, enter it into your phone and enter a new PIN. After this, you can unlock the SIM with the new PIN you specified.
Note: DO NOT try to guess the PUK code yourself, if you enter it wrong three times, the SIM will be permanently locked and you'll have to get a new SIM from your carrier.

Hey..!,do you know samsung sgh x700 fdn mode puk code....?

These directions are for an AT and T phone, but other than that would be 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

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. The phone will display the following error: "PUK blocked call operator

At&t want to change to work for us cellular

Not sure I understand your issue. Are you using the mobile from another carrier and you want to use it on the AT&T network, or vice versa?

If you're lucky, just put in the other carrier's SIM. If not it'll tell you that that carrier's SIM won't work in this phone, or that it simple isn't a valid SIM. In that case you'll probably want to call your carrier to request the unlock code and procedure.

If you put in the new SIM and it asks you for a code, that's something the carrier will have to give you to unlock it to allow the use of the new SIM.

I have a motorola slvr

This code comes from SIM card(Carrier) in your phone, not from the phone manufacturer. You should have gotten the code from the Carrier or the person you bought it second hand from. It is called the SIM Lock Code.

If it was not provided with your phone by the carrier, then you can take it to a carrier cellphone store and identify yourself, or show sales receipt provided by original ower, and the carrier can Reset the code to either 1234, the typical default lock code, or one of your choice.

NOTE!! You have only three tries to get the code right, then the phone is locked out and you MUST go to a carrier to get it unlocked. If you have not idea what the code is, then the only code worth ONE try is 1234. If you bought this off ebay, it could be locked up because someone else has already tried too many times to unlock it. Try try to get the seller to either take it back or provide you with a method to unlock it.

Many phones can be unlocked by buying a new SIM card, both TMobile and ATT sell them on their websites for about $6. This would get you to at least the point you could then enter the 15 digit IEMI Phone Unlock code that allows the phone to be used with ANY carrier. If the message on your phone is Network Locked, then you are trying to use a SIM from a carrier other than the one this phone was designed(locked) to be used with. If this is the case, either by a SIM card from the carrier named found on the phone, or Logo displayed on power on, or elsewhere, OR you can by the Carrier Unlock code, IEMI 15 digit code, off ebay, then emtry this code emailed to you from the seller. You can then use this phone with ANY carrier.
