Hi,

Let me give you a little background and then some solutions. This is generic because I don't know your carrier. I'm useing ATT as an example.

Phones are naturally unlocked, but a service provider might lock them

When originally manufactured, all GSM cell phones are unlocked. That is, they can be used with any SIM from any cellphone service provider - always assuming, of course, that the cellphone service provider has compatible GSM service on the same frequency bands that the phone can operate on.

Most cell phone service providers electronically 'lock' the phone so that it can only be used with their service. There are obvious reasons why they choose to do this - in particular, to force you to pay what are usually very high roaming charges when you take your phone out of their network and use it elsewhere in the world.

Fortunately, this locking is reversible. With some phones, it is possible to simply enter an unlocking password code into the phone and it is immediately then unlocked. Other phones need to be connected up to a special unlocking data terminal.

Your phone has to be unlocked by the carrier. LG, Motorala, Sony Ericsson, Nokia  and most of their ilk, will not give consumers the unlock codes but don't despair.

A PUK (PIN Unlock Key) code is required to unlock SIM cards that have become locked following three successive incorrect PIN entries. If your SIM card becomes locked, you will need to get a PUK code from your carrier. For example, if you have AT&T to unlock your SIM card, you can obtain your phone's PUK code from AT&T by:

●        logging in to your myWireless Account online
●        using their Technical Support Chat
●        calling Customer Care at 1-800-331-0500

To get your phone's PUK code online from ATT:

●        Log in to your myWireless Account.
●        Select My Services under My Account.
●        From the My Services screen, select My Phone/Device.
●        Select Unblock SIM Card.
●        The Unblock SIM screen will display your PUK code.


Once you receive your PUK code, you will need to enter it into your phone to set a new PIN code.
 
Note: If you enter the wrong ATT PUK code 10 times in a row, your SIM card will be invalidated, and you will need to purchase a new SIM Card. The phone will display the following error: "PUK blocked call operator."
 
There are three other ways to unlock a phone:

●        The carrier will unlock the phone for you at one of its retail outlets;
●        You can do it yourself by clicking on this link Free Unlock Codes ,
●        Pay $3.89 at the following website:  www.theunlockshack.com/.

I trust that this is helpful and solves your problem. All the best

My mns messanger is temperly blocked and i cant get into it


your account might need to be re activated ?

You may notice occasionally that your MSN or Hotmail/Windows Live account has been locked by Microsoft. Due to this, you are unable to login to your email account. You may not even access your Windows Live Messenger. This typically occurs when your account was compromised. Someone may have hacked into your account or stolen your password. Windows Live offers a systematic process to recover and unlock your account. You will need an alternate email address to perform this task.

Navigate to Windows LiveID Account Recovery help page. Read the instructions and click "Continue" twice. Type an alternative email address in the box under Contact Email Address. Click "Continue." Log in to your alternate email account. Open the email from "Windows Live." Click the link provided to you in the email. This will take you to the password recovery process. Type a new password and retype it to confirm. Follow the on-screen instructions to complete the reset. Try to log in to your MSN account using any of the MSN products, including Hotmail and Windows Live Messenger. You will be able to access your MSN account.

My phone w660i sonyericsson give only emergency only plase tell me the solution. i will check the software its ok.


Is this phone GSM or CDMA? Or what carrier are you using it through? Has the phone worked before it locked up? Sounds as if your SIM card may not be active, theres no sim card, or your sim has been blocked because of too many PIN password attempts.
If your looking for your PUK code, please follow this.
A PUK (PIN Unlock Key) code is required to unlock SIM cards that have become locked following three successive incorrect PIN entries. If your SIM card becomes locked, you will need to get a PUK code from AT&T to unlock your SIM card.

You can obtain your phone's PUK code from AT&T by:
To get your phone's PUK code online:
  1. Log in to your myWireless Account.
  2. Select My Services under My Account.
  3. From the My Services screen, select My Phone/Device.
  4. Select Unblock SIM Card.
  5. The Unblock SIM screen will display your PUK code.

Once you receive your PUK code, you will need to enter it into your phone to set a new PIN code.
Good Luck-

Sir i have lost my brand new Motorola cell phone (wx290). i want to distroyed my imei no. my cell pone imei no 3520490408547141


Call your phone service provider immediately to report the loss and suspend service.

If live support is not immediately available, access your account on the service provider's website to see if you can suspend service yourself online. Follow up with a phone call to your service provider in any event.

Ask whether your carrier can block your phone from being used even with a new SIM card. Provide your phone's International Mobile Equipment Identifier, or IMEI number, if requested.

Request a written or emailed confirmation from your carrier that your service has been suspended and blocked.

File a police report. Provide the police case number to your service or insurance provider, if requested.
Work with Available Software

Register your phone with online services such as TrackIMEI.com or Stolen-Property.com, to track your phone's usage or circulation from anywhere in the world. Regularly check your account online for any attempted usage.

Log in to your account at your phone tracking program's website. Follow the instructions and use the tools provided to locate your phone.

Once the phone is located, follow the program's specific instructions to remotely block your mobile phone and wipe it clean of information. Some programs also enable you to make your phone sound an alarm.
