Typically when you purchase a cell phone, the company that sold you the phone (ex: AT&T) 'locked' the phone before you bought it, so you can only use it on their network. This means that you can't use your phone if on any other network, even if you change the SIM (which is an abbreviation for Subscriber Identity Module) card. The SIM card is the little piece of plastic that identifies your phone to the cellular network. Changing your SIM card to have your phone work on another network is useful especially if you want to travel to another country and want to buy a pre-paid SIM card so you can have cell phone access without roaming charges. There are services that offer to provide unlocking capabilities for a fee, but don't pay for them! You can do it yourself for free, which is the perfect price.

    Before trying anything else, contact your service provider and ask for an unlock code.
    Usually, if you've been a customer of theirs for some time, they will
    provide you with an unlock code for free. This is, by far, the best way
    to get your phone unlocked.

    2Download software to generate the unlocking code.
    Software is available on some websites for free and some pay websites
    that also offer support if things go wrong. See external links below.

    3Find the Serial number of the cell phone, also known as your imei Number This can be done by either removing the back of your cell phone and
    looking underneath the battery, or simply by typing in *#06# into your
    cell phone. It should be something like:( 010082321439976/0795178073)

    4Using the software you have downloaded, enter in your Manufacturer (which is in this case Nokia), and sliding the card out. Put the battery back in and power the phone on.

    5you will see a message "Insert SIM Card". Enter all of
    the characters you see in your code, including the # symbols. To get a
    'p' press * 3 times, to get a '+' press the * key 2 times, to get a 'w'
    press the * key 4 times. Disregard any spaces in the code.

    6 In order to unlock your phone you generally need to enter only one code. Start with the first one. If your phone is not unlocked by typing the first code (MCC+MNC), use code "7" (Multilock)

    7Once you have finished entering a code that works you
    should see a message that says "SIM is not restricted" or "Restriction
    off" message depending on your model
    . If not, try entering another
    code. Message "Cannot undo restrictions" means the phone is
    "hard-locked" and cannot be unlocked by code.


    hope this works

Where can i insert my puk code for my nokia 7100


A PUK code is not a phone code, it is a SIM card code.
You use it to unlock your SIM card if you enter a wrong PIN code.
If you enter a wrong PIN code, you will automatically be asked for a PUK code which you can enter, to unlock your SIM card.
You can get a PUK code for your SIM card by contacting your network service provider and they will give it to you.
