What is the PUK code for an lg cookie KP 500?


Hi missjess2010,

PUK means "PERSONAL UNLOCKING KEY"

Regarding to problem you encounter first, You need to call the phone company that sold you the phone card to unlock the phone.The PUK code is asked if you enter a wrong PIN 3 times.
Second, You need to call the phone company that released the SIM card, they can retrieve the puk code from a database for free.
Third, In your case you need to contact your SIM card phone provider technical support to unlock the SIM.

Note: 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 will not ask for the PUK anymore.

Hope it helps.

Thank You for using Fixya.

What does puk blocked mean?


Hi.

PUK means "personal unlocking key" .

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

The PUK code is a code associated with the SIM card and not with the phone.

You have only two ways to get rid of the PUK code. Either you replace the SIM card , or you call phone provider that issued the sim cadr (eg. At&T, Virgin, Tmobile , Vodafone, Telecom etc.)


You need to call the phone company that released the SIM card, they can retrieve the PUK code from a database for free.

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

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

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

What does it mean by P.UK blocked


Hi.

PUK means "personal unlocking key" . This is an unique ID associated with the phone.

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

The PUK is usually enclosed with SIM card or phone documentation (if SIM is the one originally provided with the phone.

If you do not have the PUK, then you need to call the phone company that released the SIM card. The code will be retrieved from a database.Service is usually free. The same can be done for a small fee at any local phone shop (they will call the company).

The PIN and PUK are codes linked to the SIM card
and not to the phone.

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


Here an old tip on the topic. It basically says the same things explained in this comment: The PUK code is asked if you enter a wrong pin 3 times....

When i put my sim in it asks for an unlock code?


It is asking for code because you change your sim card security when you insert this in phone last time. It is asking for PIN code. Only network service provider know this code, contact customer care of your service provider. If you entered wrong PIN number three times your sim card will be rejected hence don't try to enter wrong code.

Wrong pin i entered on ma new phone


if its troubling u abt pin code and if u dont remember it, then u've a very simple procedure.
Read this section & u'll surely be able to enter a new pin code.

Enter Pin code of ur wish, u just need to block the sim so that ur phone asks u PUK code.
i guess pin code tries are abt 5-7 times.
So it will say Sim card Blocked Enter PUK code.
Now call to customer care from other number of same newtork provider & ask then ur PUK code.
they will ask u a 16 digit code, which is printed on ur sim card. after u provide 16 digit code to customer code, they will provide u ur PUK code,
Enter the PUK code given & now enter ur New pin code.
This is quite lenghty process but 110% working.
If u like my post, please rate me up, i really need some good ratings..
Thanks.

I need to know the puk code for a samsung r225m


If you have lost your pin then you can enter the pin 3 times, util the PUK lock appears. Then you unlock the PUK calling the phone company that provided the SIM card inside your phone (eg Vodafone, Telecom, Tmobile, Orange, AT&T etc.).

Calling the phone company is the standard procedure to unlock a SIM card, however, if you do not want to call the company you can just replace the SIM card with one compatible with the phone, as PIN and PUK codes are related to SIM, and not to the phone.

Nokia 5310 security code unlock


Check this

On the main screen type in:
*#06# for checking the IMEI (International Mobile Equipment Identity).
*#7780# reset to factory settings.
*#67705646# This will clear the LCD display(operator logo).
*#0000# To view software version.
*#2820# Bluetooth device address.
*#746025625# Sim clock allowed status.
#pw+1234567890+1# Shows if sim have restrictions.
*#92702689# - takes you to a secret menu where you may find some of the information below:
1. Displays Serial Number.
2. Displays the Month and Year of Manufacture
3. Displays (if there) the date where the phone was purchased (MMYY)
4. Displays the date of the last repair - if found (0000)
5. Shows life timer of phone (time passes since last start)
*#3370# - Enhanced Full Rate Codec (EFR) activation. Increase signal strength, better signal reception. It also help if u want to use GPRS and the service is not responding or too slow. Phone battery will drain faster though.
*#3370* - (EFR) deactivation. Phone will automatically restart. Increase battery life by 30% because phone receives less signal from network.
*#4720# - Half Rate Codec activation.
*#4720* - Half Rate Codec deactivation. The phone will automatically restart
If you forgot wallet code for Nokia S60 phone, use this code reset: *#7370925538#
Note, your data in the wallet will be erased. Phone will ask you the lock code. Default lock code is: 12345
Press *#3925538# to delete the contents and code of wallet.
Unlock service provider: Insert sim, turn phone on and press vol up(arrow keys) for 3 seconds, should say pin code. Press C,then press * message should flash, press * again and 04*pin*pin*pin# \
*#7328748263373738# resets security code.
Default security code is 12345

Change closed caller group (settings >security settings>user groups) to 00000 and ure phone will sound the message tone when you are near a radar speed trap. Setting it to 500 will cause your phone 2 set off security alarms at shop exits, gr8 for practical jokes! (works with some of the Nokia phones.) Press and hold "0" on the main screen to open wap browser.
Thanks.
