Perhaps you have entered the wrong security code into your phone by accident, or maybe you genuinely just cannot remember it no matter how many times you try. Regardless of how it happened, being locked out of your cell phone is an inconvenience to say the least, but fortunately there are some steps you can follow to reset the security code.
To unlock a cell phone and reset the security code, you will need to get in touch with your network provider to ask them to give you a new PUK number. It is this number that you need to gain access again to your phone. There are a number of ways you can get in touch with the network provider. You will need to speak to someone on the customer services team, so check the company’s website for a contact telephone number or email address.
In order to establish you are who you say you are - the owner of the phone - you may need to answer a series of security questions before you can get a new PUK number. This is basically designed to stop thieves from using phones they have stolen. These PUK numbers are unique to every phone, so this added bit of security should act as an added means of protecting your valuables from criminals.
