Hi,

Let me give you a little background and then some solutions. This is generic because I don't know your carrier. I'm using 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, Motorola, 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 my wireless 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 my wireless 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

Ben

I forgot my 4 digit pass code on my motorola razor v3


Hi,

The default lock code is 1234.

If you changed it and forgot the unlock code, At the Enter Unlock Code prompt, try entering 1234 or the last four digits of your phone number. If that doesn’t work, press menu button and enter your
six-digit security code instead.Default security code is 000000.

If you forget other codes:

If you forget your security code, SIM PIN code, PIN2 code, or call barring password, contact your service provider.

While you get the other codes, service provider will ask for your personal details to check whether the mobile belongs to you only. If they are satisfied with your answers they will provide with the PIN code.

Thank You

Forgot my security code please help for razr v3 motorola


If you want to unlock your Motorola phone to use it on another network, consider unlocking by entering a code. Code unlocking is the easiest way to remove the SIM lock of your handset. Just enter the code with the instructions below and it's unlocked. If you don't have a code yet, you can get one in my eBay store here:

How to Enter Unlock Codes on Motorola phones:

  1. Switch ON your phone with a not allowed SIM Card,
  2. Phone should show "Enter Special or Subsidy Code",
  3. Enter unlock code.
  4. Your phone is now unlocked.
WARNING: if any of these messages appear :
- "Contact Service Provider"
- or "Tamper Alter"
- or "Wait Before Enter Special Code"
- or "Contact Service'
It's because you or somebody else has already entered too many wrong codes. You just have to leave the phone ON on the error message and after 1hr - 8hrs the message "Enter Special Code" will appear again!
Note: If your phone is on a 3G network enter **057*, then another window will appear to enter the unlock code.

How to Enter Unlock Codes on all Motorola L6i & L7i:( not L6 and L7 without i )
  1. Press and hold "*" key by dialing code 787090
  2. The mobile displays: "Menu. Network"
  3. Choose 'yes' and then press OK
  4. The mobile ask you for code
  5. Enter the code for unlocking.
How to Enter Unlock Codes on all Motorola A1000 and other A models:
  1. Click on the icon Phone
  2. Enter the following keys: **057*
  3. Mobile displays "locking enter personalization"
  4. Enter the unlock code
  5. Click Ok
