SOURCE: Forgotten My Phone Lock Code

Ok, THIS WILL WORK! It worked on my W580i and it wasn't even supposed to. FIRST! Download (8.8MB) XS++ From HERE:http://forums.se-nse.net/index.php?showtopic=16338
SECOND! No install. It just runs.
Make sure you have ALL drivers for YOUR phone. That should be under the bettery. Under model... or something like that. HERE! http://www.nodevice.com/driver/company/Sony_Ericsson.html

Take your phone, turn it off. Start this program and click on connect. You'll have 30 seconds to plug your phone into your computer and HOLD C The entire time! (the delete button or 2). If connected, then click at the button: GDFS. There will be a phone lock reset to "0000". Click it. It will take no more than 45 seconds. I promise. Unplug your phone, and vuala! If your phone won't turn on, try pulling out the battery, putting it back and trying again. This program is also good for flashing phones, and putting flash menues on your phone. Also unlocking it and debranding it. GOOD LUCK!

SOURCE: My phone is PUK blocked

Hi,


PIN CODE is SIM dependenet and not phone dependent

PUK code in PIN UNLOCKING CODE, which is required when you give PIN number wrongly for 3 times,
This code is OPERATOR specific and not phone specific and you have to call you operator and get PUK if PIN is blocked...

if you provide PUK code wrongly for 7 time, you sim may become useless, then you have to buy new SIM

NOTE: You should ask your service provider,get the PUK,


ENJOY! RATE THIS SOLUTION

SOURCE: PUK code

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.

SOURCE: need puk code for locked LG KE850prada phone

Hi,

If you need the PUK ( Personal Unblocking Key ) for your phone, you will have to contact your mobile phone service provider.

PUK code is related to the SIM card you are using. So, kindly call the Customer support of your mobile service provider and they will provide you with the PUK code.

Also, entering a wrong PUK code ten times in a row disables the SIM card permanently. So, please be careful while entering the PUK code.

Hope this solves your problem. Thanks for using FixYa.

What is the PUK code


its Personal Unlock KEY..........for phone security......actually before PUK u enter sim pin........if wrong pin is entered 5/10 times your sim is locked permanently and sim can only be used after u enter puk code. Please note that pin code is entered by user.....but PUK code is provided by your network service provider company. PUK is generally mentioned on the sim rapper(cover).........in case u have not kept the rapper and u do not know the PUK code and ur phone is asking for it...then please do not try to enter it as too many attempts to enter wrong PUK will lock ur sim for ever and u will have to get a new sim.....so instead of trying a wrong PUK code its better to contact your network service provider (you can call their service number) and he will give u the PUK code for your sim free of cost.
I Hope this clears all your doubts about PUK.

My phone displays Enter PUK . I don't know what that is.


There is a PIN locking system to lock your phone to avoid un-authorised access by others. This can be a good idea but if its entered wrong more than three times, it will result in SIM blocking. Once SIM gets blocked, phone starts asking PUK code to enter. If you again enter wrong code for three times, SIM gets completely blocked. You have to walk into your service provider outlet to get a replacement SIM card.
PUK code is a SIM specific code assigned by your service provider. No way you can guess & enter it. So, when it asks for the PUK code, don't do anything, get the PUK code from your service provider. Jus call the customer care and he/she will lead you through a series of questions ( regarding the details like your email address, recent billing info, recent msgs sent ) and once you get them all correct, they will give you the PUK code.

Good luck.

I forgot my lock code i tried my old lock code but i wont open, so i turn it off. after a few minutes i opened it again i enter my lock code again but still it wont open, what do u think should i do???


SIM pin code:
This is a pin code that locks the sim card until you enter the correct code. This protects your account, even
if your sim is put into another handset. To reset it, you need the PUK code:
Pin Unlock Code (PUK)
If you miss key (or forget) your SIM pin code, and enter the wrong one 3-5 times in a row, the SIM will lock up, and you’ll need to enter the PUK unlock code to release it. You should ask your Network Service Provider for this code when you need it. Don’t try to guess it, because after a few wrong guesses, the SIM card will be permanently disabled.

I need a puk code for an orange phone? without having to go to the problem of phoning up orange that takes ages!! the phone is an LG ISO 800.


The PUK code comes with the SIM card, the code is printed on the plastic card that the SIM card was attached to. If you don't have it only your network service provider can give it to you.
