Once you enter the code wrong 3 times the phone will ask for puk code of that sim card, you can get the puk code from the service provider of that sim card if you did not get the puk code in your documents when you opened the account. That is then the only way to obtain the puk code - it is a random number made by the service provider and only they know the puk code for the sim card. contact them.

    IF YOU DON'T KNOW THE PROVIDER YOU CAN NOT GET INTO THE SIM CARD, FIND OUT WHAT PROVIDER IT IS AND CONTACT THEM, OR THROW IT AWAY AS YOU CAN NOT GET IN OTHERWICE.

First get the PUK code from the service provider by giving them the number printed on the backside of your sim card and then go for the final attempt.
insert the PUK it asks for.
once you get the PUK code, you will be able to reset the password.

My 2GB Memory card is locked and i can't remember the password


Your best solution is to reformat the card, however you will loose anything saved to the card, option 2 is to obtain an sd adaptor and a card reader for your computer and attempt to pull the info using your computer

My old LG cell phone (LGCU400) broke and was replaced with a newer model (LGECU515). I put my old sim card in the new phone but I cannot retrieve any of my contacts/info from the sim card. Is there...


Hello!
I went to the AT&T/Cingular store and they tried hooking my broken phone to their system but could not retrieve any #s (they were saved to my phone not my SIM). They told me there was no other way to retrieve the #s and that a computer cable wouldn't work bc their system would've been able to retrieve them. I knew there had to be some way of retrieving them bc I could still turn my phone on- the top 1/2 (screen) had just broken off.
It finally dawned on me to look at my husband's phone (we had the same one), write down the buttons to press & the # of clicks per button on my old phone, in order to blindly go through my entire contacts list and save each one to my SIM card. Approximately every 25 contacts I saved I'd switch the SIM card to my new phone and make sure they were all saving correctly. I'm currently still transferring all 137 contacts- grueling but well worth it. This only works if your old phone will still turn on & function even if you can't see/use the screen.
***Make sure your phone's saving your contacts to your SIM and not your phone- I thought mine was and it was one rude awakening today when I found out otherwise! I hope this helps!
