    Yes, 3 unsuccessful tries locks the sim card. What service was the phone through(T-Mobile, Cingular, etc.)? Now if you really don't want to find out who it belongs to, you can still use it buy purchasing another sim card(contract or prepaid) through the service provider that the phone was used with. Slip in the new sim card and it should work, but I really don't think you should keep it(I have lost phones before).

    Ask yourself what you would do if you lost YOUR cell phone, and then imagine the possibilities. Isn't that a grand feeling?

    Re: Puk Unlock

    hmmm...is that the only possible sol'n you can come up with? How about returning it to a cingular store? If thats not possible, call cingular cs and ask how it might be possible to reunite the owner with the phone? Wouldn't you have been thankful and amazed had somebody done the same for you?

    Also, what was so compelling about the voicemail that wasnt meant for you either? If the phone worked before you attermpted to guess the PIN to retrieve the voicemail, then you would have had access to the phone book and could have tried to locate the owner thru a contact.
    Also, who paid for the phone you lost and its replacement? Just curious.
    I just hope that replacing the phone isn't an economic hardship on its owner.

    Simple, you open the phone, remove the battery and copy down the IMEI number, then you call Cingular customer service, and read the number back to them, and have them contact the owner of the phone, and have the owner call you to make arrangements for getting the phone back to them. Or you take it to a Cingular store (same results).

    But since the phone is not registered to your account, without spending money, you ain't getting past that PUK lockout. And manybe not even if you do spend money.

    And if you had to try to guess the SIM Pin number, then yes the owner added a SIM pin code to keep people out of the phone if found (always a good idea to change it from it's default). I always have a SIM pin and a phone PIN, to keep the avg Joe from rebooting the phone to try to get around it.

    Re: Puk Unlock

    Hopefully thr rightful owner called Cingular when he lost his phone. That way they can blacklist the IMEI # on the phone, making it a fancy paperwieght and anyone who "found" the phone couldn't use it. Then the only thing left to do would be to return it to the true owner through the suggestions mentioned in this thread.

    Re: Puk Unlock

    That would have been the thing to do from the beginning, but since the finder of the phone wanted to listen to the voice messages and tried to guess the PIN, it then required a PUK PIN (an added layer of security). tried to guess it and ultimately rendered the phone disabled and SIM blocked as well. Suffice it to say that the phone is of abslute no use for communication purposes for the finder. I believe, in order to get the PUK PIN, you have to be able to give the service provider info that only the owner would have(more security).
