If you forgot your sim password (PIN) enter a code 3 times to get the phone to ask for puk code then call your carrier for the puk code and that will allow you to set a new pin

How do you unblock your phoe when your PUK is blocked


your SIM card is VOID meaning it does not work any longer. That means you must contact your service provider, and they will have to send you a new SIM card. This happened to me once before, and it was a pain. :-( Anyways I did'nt get charged for the new SIM card though.

Hope this what you were looking for, and next time just remember not to enter the PUK code too many times without knowing the code, contact your provider first hand.

Hope this helps

I FORGOT MY PASSWORD PLS HELP ME .MY MOBILE IS NOKIA 5300


Relax...

The first step is to find out if the password is on your sim card.
If you already know that it is on your sim card skip this step. Turn off your phone and open it up. You should see your battery. On most phones your sim card is located under the battery. When you find your sim card remember exactly how it goes into it's slot and take it out.

Put the battery back into the phone and turn it back on. It will tell you that your sim card is missing and on most phones ask you if you want to start without a sim card. Press yes and see if it asks you for your password. If it does not, then the password is on your sim card. Put the sim card back into your phone and call your service provider. Tell them that you forget the password to turn on your phone. They should be able to tell you what you password is after they ask you a few questions.

If the password was not on your sim card, then call your cell phone provider and ask them how to reset your password.

Service provider: Verizon, Vodafone etc are service providers.
Cell phone provider: Samsung is a cell phone provider.

Please inform if your problem is solved or not. If not, then we will see what we can do.

I bought a cell phone from a friend


sounds like the phone was set up to ask for a sim password from the old user. Now that you put your card in it wants the password but the phone does not know the card has been switched. Ask your buddy the code to unlock the bios and disable the password. If al lelse fails put his old sim card back in and then disable the password for the sim card. This feature is a security so people cannot access your contact stored on your sim card.

How do i unlock my PUK lock


Hi,


It seems you encode a wrong sim card password?

PUK means "personal unlocking key" .

The PUK code is asked if you enter a wrong pin 3 times.

You need to call your phone service company, they can retrieve the puk code from a database

for free.

In your case you need to contact your SIM card phone provider technical support to unlock the SIM.


The PIN and PUK are related to the SIM card, not to the phone.

If you replace the SIM card with a different one, then the phone should not ask for the PUK anymore.

thanks,

Need master password for my samsung sgh-c425


I found this off another site. I have tested this withy my D807 and it works.
1. If you have changed your phone password, change your password back to the default 8 zeros (00000000). 
1a. NOTE (Modification here by my experience): Goto SETTINGS, SECURITY, then SIM LOCK and disable this before proceeding.
2. Put a SIM card that is from a network other than the one your phone is locked to (I used a TMOBILE card from my buddy Darin) 
3. When Incorrect SIM (I got invalid card and there was a sim card graphic spinning) error comes up, type *#9998*3323#. 
4. White screen will appear with an exit option. Press the right softkey. (I ended up pushing the down key to get a menu) 
5. From the menu that appears, select the Malloc Fail option. This will reboot the phone and the normal service screens will appear. 
6. Type *0141# and then press the green call key. "Personalization" or "Personalized" will appear. 
7. Turn off your phone and put the original SIM back in. 
8. Turn on your phone. You will receive a prompt to enter a password. 
9. Type 8 zeros (00000000) (This is because the SIM LOCK Mentioned earlier gets switched back on)
10. Completed. You have now unlocked your phone.

Easy as pie. Now you have an UNLOCKED Samsung D807 =) worked on my brand new 2 day old Samsung D807 phone.

Oh also guys I called Cingular (on hold for 1 hour with these losers) and they told me there is no way to SAVE phonebook contacts from the phone to your sim card. Now this really pisses me off. So I did some searching and found out that with the studio software from samsung you are able to edit and move contacts from your phone to the sim and back. Or copy from the phone and put them on the sim card. Just thought you all should know as there is no menu option on the phone.
