Lg300gbPuk#needs to be entered


Hi, to unlock Puk code, you must know what puk code is.
Puk code are codes that comes with a new Sim card. And it usually comes uwhen you type in a particular codes more than three times wrongly. When you finish typing a wrong code the third time,in other not to damage the Sim card, it helps you save the Sim card by putting a stop to it which is PUK code.

You can find Puk on the Card that you removed the Sim card from. There is always a pin and a puk code on the card .

When you see the puk code,you will type in the code on your phone and after typing it, it will ask for a new pin you will now type in the pin number on the card.

But if you can not find the card any more,you will have to contact your Sim card service customer care for help.They will help you by tell you what the Puk code is..

You can also reach them on phone, by using a friends phone to make the call.

Call is free and the process is very easy..

Thanks fr usng fixya.

My phone is blocked. It says "PUK innactivated.Card Blocked" Can you help me ?


hi, the PUK code is the security code for the sim card and not the phone, so the message your being told is that this sim card is now blocked this happens if the wrong PUK code has been entered more than 10 times.

All you need to do is get a new sim card for the network your phone is locked to or the same network as the sim card that is in the phone now, once you put this new sim card in you should be able to use your phone, if how ever it still asks for a PUK code then all you need to do is call the service provider for that sim card and ask them for the PUK code they will give you this code for free over the phone

so your phone is not locked its just the sim card, it could be locked if the sim card has been not used for 180 days as they get switched of after this long with no use, so putting a new sim card in your phone will solve your problem

I have an overseas SIM card a friend sent so she


Um... if your Phone doesn't use a SIM, then you cannot "put on in" as there is no SIM Slot. IF you do have a SIM Slot,usually close by, there is a little drawing showing the way it slides in, usually the angled corner goes out, and faces right, and the straight edge goes inwards, and it goes in FACE DOWN

Need puk code for lg vu phone


don't enter any codes into the phone anymore, the puk code has noting to do with the phone, its the protection of the sim card, that comes on when you have entered the pin code wrong 3 times. to get the puk code for your sim card your only option is to call your phone service provider they will give you the code.

if you have entered the wrong puk code wrong too many times you may need to buy / get a new sim card from your provider, and you will lose all the contents in the locked sim card.

Call your provider and tell them you need a PUK code for your phone.

My phone is unlock forsome reason i even try the sim card from the same company as my recent sim but still doesnt work, it keeps on asking for the sim lock


hello there....well its quite simple...there is nothing wrong with your phone ...its your SIM... if it is asking for a PUK (Personal Unblocking Key) code...call your subscriber and ask them for PUK code,entering this code will reset your sim
if u keep entering wrong your sim will be damaged so call them
If the error message is saying sim damaged call them and ask for a "sim replacement" you will get a new sim while you will retain the same number ,however you will lose the phone numbers and other data stored in sim,this can be free but it depends on the company and how 'customer friendly they are
Hope this helps
Cheers

Phone lock code


PERMANENT UNLOCK CODE SAMSUNG SGH A117, T429, T729

Insert ANY unaccepted SIM card in the phone and then turn the phone on, follow the steps in 1 to 4 below to enter all the codes. The phone will states "Wrong card" at the end of step 2 and "network lock deactivated" at the end of step 4 if you do everything right so pls take your time to enter the code or follow the instruction correctly at each step. When entering some of the zeros at steps 3 and 4 your phone may display the zero as hyphen or minus (-), dont worry, just count when entering the zero to ensure you enter just the right numbers of zeros. Now let's begin... 1/ Put any unaccepted SIM card in your SAMSUNG SGH Phone, turn the phone on, it will display "WRONG CARD"

2/ At the wrong card screen, type *7465625*638*00000000*00000000#

3/ Now remove the battery with the SIM card, Put the battery back and turn the phone on again without the SIM card, it will display "Insert SIM card" 4/ At the insert SIM card screen/end of step 3 above type #7465625*638*00000000#

At the end of step 4 phone will show "network lock deactivated" 5/ Now Reinsert your unaccepted card or any other unaccepted SIM card in the phone and enjoy your unlocked phone!
