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 have absolutely no affiliation or relationship with The Unlock Shack or its principals.

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

Ben

If your mobile phone displays Phone Restricted with an Undo option and selecting Undo results in an Enter Restriction Code error, your mobile phone is Network Locked. This means your mobile phone has been restricted for use on one specific network and a Restriction Code or Unlock Code must be entered before the phone can be used with alternative networks.You can get the Restriction Code at here

Hi there. If you can't remember your lock code, you may have to reset your phone. I would try and remember what your lock code is set to, and try the last 4 digits of your phone number! If those don't work, check this link and follow these instructions to wipe your phone back to factory settings. http://www.fixya.com/support/r9465549-format_nokia_phone_back_factory Good luck! Alex

You have entered the wrong SIM password so it is locked. You can unlock it easily. You have to call your network service provider and ask for PUK code. They can ask you SIM no. which is printed at the back of SIM card.
Then you can enter the PUK code and use the phone again.
Revert in case of any problem.

I had just bought a LG Ally and when I got it had a pattern lock. But since I don't know it and I don't know the Gmail it's under I can't unlock it. Can I take it to a Verizon to unlock it?


Yes, Verizon will help you with this.

You may need to reset the phone to get in without knowing the pattern lock. To do this (you will lose your saved phone numbers and any stored data!!), follow the steps:

1. Remove battery, then reinstall battery.
2. Hold Volume Up, Home and Power buttons for several seconds, until you see the setup screen.
3. Follow the prompts to set the phone up again.
