Question about Samsung Galaxy Tab Tablet PC

Open Question

All of a sudden there's no service sign on my tab. I can't make a phone call or anything that provide the sim card. I've even tried to pull the sim card in and out, still nothing happened. The no service sign is still on. When I checked the application button, I pressed it, and there's the sim toolkit button. So I tried to pressed it, and it showed "application is not installed". What's wrong with my tab? Help me please. Thanks, Willem K

SOURCE: I am using samsung galaxy tab. The OS update

Galaxy Tab is not running on OS 3.0 (Honeycomb), that is running on the Xoom only. Samsung would have to release an update for your Tab themselves. Google makes it available and only Samsung can make that decision.

SOURCE: I bought the Samsung Galaxy Tab from a Telstra

the galaxy tab will be locked to the provider you got it from, which is why your sim isnt being recognised. You will need to unlock the tab to allow it to accept any sim. To get it unlocked you need to request an unlock code from Telstra

Sim card for Samsung Galaxy tablet 4?


A SIM card is for 4G LTE internet service, so if you have a Samsung Tab 4 ensure it is 4G capable before trying to insert a SIM card. If you try to insert a SIM card into a SD Card slot you may damage the card reader.

That being said, I believe it is located on the right side of the tablet. Sometimes the SD Card slot and the Sim card slot are right next to each other. Once you open the cover that reveals the slots there should be small icons for the SD Card and the Sim card. Normally, the SIM card slot will have a little notch on the icon. Attached are guides with pictures.

My SAMSUNG tablet SIM Base is faulty, hence I am not having any internet connectivity via my SIM service provider which is Airtel. What can I do?


Hello,

Had a problem very similar to this. I took it to my local servicing agent and they found the SIM Base to be defective. They replaced the section but charged 75 USD (it was out of warranty) then they reinitialized the SIM and all was well.

Best wishes,
Joe

Samsung Tab S 8.4" ask for password or pin #, where is it located?


It can only come from your carrier. They have locked the SIM.

Tip & How-To about Cell Phones
Your phone is asking for a PUK code?

Is your phone asking for a PUK code. PUK = Personal Unlocking Key. Personal Unblocking Key, or PIN Unblocking Key.

This can only come from your cellphone carrier and usually the company that still owns the phone under the agreement. Sometimes it is because you have put another SIM card in it, and they own the phone and need you to use them as carrier to get the price of the phone back, or you are in default of payment, or on a Pay as You Go plan, it is over expired. I can also happen if you have entered the unlock code wrongly three times. This often happens when a phone is stolen or lost and has been found by or sold to someone else who then try and use the phone. Wikipedia A personal unblocking code (PUC), also known as a PIN unlock key (PUK), is used in 3GPP mobile phones to reset a personal identification number (PIN) that has been lost or forgotten.
Most mobile telephones offer the feature of PIN protection. After switching on the phone, if the PIN security function is active, the user is requested to enter a 4-8 digit PIN enabling the phone's non-emergency calling functions. If the wrong PIN is typed in more than three times, either the SIM card, the device, or both become locked. They can be returned to their original unlocked state by entering a PUC, provided by the service operator after verification. If the wrong PUC is entered ten times in a row, the device will become permanently blocked and unrecoverable, requiring a new SIM card. Cellular phone users are therefore advised by most providers to keep their PUC written down in a safe place separate from the device.
The PUC (PUK) is a SIM-specific code assigned and provided by the service provider.
Once you enter the PUK code, you must set a PIN. The PUK and PUK2 are used to unlock the PIN and PIN2 codes respectively if your SIM card is blocked
From Bell
The PIN unblocking key (PUK; sometimes called personal unlocking key) is a master security code for unblocking and resetting the personal identification number (PIN) for your SIM card. For added security, the PUK is unique to your SIM card. If your PIN code is active and you enter it incorrectly three times, your SIM card will be blocked. You won't be able to use your phone, except for emergency calls. You must enter your PUK into your phone to unblock the SIM card. If your SIM card becomes blocked, Contact us to get your PUK.
You may be able to do it from the website or your cellular provider. This is from Orange - T-Mobile in the UK.
Your phone can become blocked in a number of ways - one of them is if you enter your SIM card PIN number incorrectly three times in a row. To unblock your SIM card, you will need to use something called a PUK (Personal Unblocking Key).
Remember that unblocking is different to unlocking. Read more information on unlocking your device.

How do i find puk code to unlock sim card to a samsung galaxy 3 tablet


As I understand from personal experience, the PUK code is only available from the service provider. You need PUK code after you entered the wrong PIN 3 times for the SIM card. Call your service provider or get a new SIM card.

Network problem


If you're not registered with a service provider they will block you as soon as they recognize the sim card. Sometimes it takes a little longer than others. It may be that the vodacom sim came with the tablet and had a trial period. One that 'trial' period expired the block it.

I need to get the puk and pin so I can unlock my sims


you can find the PUK & PIN only on the package or SIM-card holder which came with your SIM-card - see photo
need-get-puk-pin-unlock-sims-ziidwqfjzh12fiagolk42ia4-2-0.jpg need-get-puk-pin-unlock-sims-ziidwqfjzh12fiagolk42ia4-2-2.jpg
Step 1: Look in your SIM card wallet. Most network providers will give you your PUK code on the SIM card holder and instruction manual/ package when you buy the phone. Others send the code through the post in your welcome pack.
Step 2: Contact your network provider's customer service team. If you can't find your PUK code in your SIM card wallet, contact your network provider. It will confirm that you are the account holder and provide you with your PUK code. However, remember you will need another phone to do so
Step 3
Visit the network service provider's website, where some networks will allow you to access your PUK code online. Networks such as AT&T require customers to sign into their online account before accessing their PUK code. However, others simply require you to enter your phone number before displaying your PUK code.

Puk code


PUK Code
PUK stands for Personal Unblocking Key. This is a unique eight-digit code specific to your SIM card. This is required when the PIN number to unlock your mobile phone is entered incorrectly 3 times. You are then given 10 attempts to enter your PUK code. If an incorrect PUK code is entered after the 10th attempt, you will block your SIM card permanently and will require a new SIM card from your mobile phone provider.
PUK codes can be obtained through the following ways - The PUK code is in your SIM card documentation Starter Pack. If you do not have this then - Please contact your phone service provider.
Your cell phone service provider can give you the PUK code once you give them your account details and they have confirmed your identity. For details to obtain the PUK code for the SIM card, please click on this link and follow my instructions.
