Tracfone,set the default,went to personalize went to security got a puk lock needs code option sos calls 911.dont know the code

Hi if you've locked your phone through entering an incorrect pin number 3 times then you need a Puk code, Ring your service provider and they will give you the FREE Puk code.....
If you lock your phone again some time in the future and you're still with the same service provider you can use that same Puk code.. CHEERS..

Everytime my dad tries to use this phone and brings my number up to call me he gets SOS calls only.What does he need to do to rectify this problem please?

Cell phones that have been deactivated are able to make emergency (911/SOS) calls only. The phone will need to be reactivated to be used normally. Check with the cellular carrier.

My phone says PUK blocked and only lets me do emergency calls and you cant type in the code anymore

PUK stands for Personal Unblocking Key. This is a uniqueeight-digit code specific to your SIM card. This is required when the PINnumber to unlock your mobile phone is entered incorrectly 3 times. You are thengiven 10 attempts to enter your PUK code. If an incorrect PUK code is enteredafter the 10th attempt, you will block your SIM card permanently and willrequire 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 themyour account details and they have confirmed your identity.For details to obtain the PUK code for the SIM card, pleaseclick on this link and follow my instructions.

I cant get onto my samsung because my PUK code is blocked and it tells me to call sos but when i say yes nothing happens


You will need to look up the phone number of your Network provider. SOS means emergency calls only are available to fire, police ambulance etc... so do not use this even if it does work - unless of course you have an emergency. The PUK code is only available directly from your Network Provider so use google to find their support number and then use another phone to call them. PUK is a personal unblocking key which is actually related to the Sim card and not the actual phone itself. Your Network provider is the only way to gain access to this information.

The good news is the Network provider will give you the PUK for free.

All you need to do is ring your provider (on another phone obviously) and once they have established that you are the owner of the phone they will give you the PUK for free and directions on how to enter it into your phone.

Thank you for using FixYa.

My cell phone is only making emergency calls, why?

It cannot pickup signal on your location. Some cellphone brand will goes automatically to SOS or emergency calls. There is no way for you to do a regular call and SMS texting. Thank you.

Sim card is locked

You need to contact your service provider and get the PUK code. Your provider will be able to give you any special button sequences needed to enter it. If you have tried to put in the PUK code 10 times or more, your SIM card is fried and you will have to replace it.

SAMSUNG SGH-E250 puk blocked

Hi everyone

Every PUK code is unique so nobody can tell you your PUK number, but i will tell you what you can do!
1) If you still have your packet that your Sim Card came in, you should find your PUK number in there, if you don't have the packet, please read bellow.

2) You must get a phone that is on the same network as your phone and call the networks Customer Care and ask them for your PUK number, they will ask you for your phone number, then they will tell you your PUK number. Once you have done this, you will be able to reset your Pin number so you will be able to go into your phone again.

Please also remember to give me a good rating on my profile.

Kind regards
