    I have my PUK CODE,how do I enter it please?

    Hi all
    My Orange contract recently expired. I have my PUK code,and my PAC code is in the post...I can't use the phone. I tried a different sim card in it,but it doesn't work. Does the PUK code unlock the phone and allow the use of a different sim card? If so,how do I "unlock/unblock" the phone and enter the PUK code to be able to do this? I don't know if it is the PUK that enables this,
    (use of different sim) if not,please advise... Thanks.

    You've not got it quite right.

    PUK code: PIN unblocking key. Used to help you access you phone again if it has been locked due to too many unsuccessful PIN entries.

    PAC code: Port Authorisation Code - given to you by your provider if you have chosen to move your number to another network.


    To allow the use of any SIM card within your phone, the phone needs to be "UnLocked" which is a different process completely.

    Hi
    Thanks. I have been reading up and it looks like Orange will do it for £20...I think there is a couple of sim options,like SimDevil. Anyone used one? I think you put it under another sim you want to use. Cheapest I have found it is £10. I seen another a while ago from the States,was only about $3 but I can't find any links...anyone know the one I mean,or an alternative to SimDevil? TY

    i think there's another called turbosim. but if you ask me, i'd rather get it permanently unlocked than using those sim based hardware unlock
