    Hi,

    My younger cousin was playing with my 6230 and managed to get the phone to
    ask him for the phone's PUK code...

    so he continued to play with it and now when I start the phone, all I see is
    a message saying: "SIM CARD BLOCKED"

    WHAT SHOULD I DO ?

    do I have to contact the retailer? or is there a code for releasing it??

    Thanks in advance,
    Mickey.

    It would be a lot more sensible to advise the OP to phone the network
    operator & obtain the PUK code.

    And what's all this rubbish about? Do you really need to have a sig this

    If he's entered the PUK code wrong too many times, the SIM is gone,
    completely.
    New SIM time.

    If you can obtain the PUK from your network operator, I'd love to
    know your network operator. Also, give me your cell number so that
    I can keep you posted!

    It's bound to a SIM card. It's the proof that you are the owner of
    a SIM card. If an operator hands you the PUK for an existing SIM
    card, he is violating the privacy agreement.

    It would be like calling up your town hall and asking them to send
    you your birth certificate.

    What a load of b******s. Where do *you* get the PUK from then..?!

    And get the money back from the little sod who was mucking about with your
    phone, unless you had said he could use it, in which case let it be a lesson
    to you not to let anyone borrow your phone.

    All of the network operators in the UK will supply the PUK codes on request
    to the registered account holder.

    Yeah, right!

    BTW, your sig is still borked.

    Yes, that part's right.

    Eh? Don't be daft. The PUK code is a security code that you are entitled
    to have access to. In the UK, at least one of the network operators
    supplies the PUK with their SIM cards. How the hell can an operator
    supplying a PUK code to the account holder be a breach of any privacy
    greement?

    > It would be like calling up your town hall and asking them to send

    No, a more accurate analogy would be asking your credit card issuer to
    supply you with the PIN code for your card so that you can actually use the
    thing. PUK's (and PIN's) should only be supplied to the account holder.

    I've been given a PUK by my service provider over the phone. They went
    through a few procedures to confirm my identity and then read the PUK
    out to me. Where's the problem with that?

    In a sealed envelope upon purchase of the SIM card. One time only.
    Just like my parents got my notary-authenticated birth certificate
    when my birth was registered, one time only.

    Yeah, and you should have gotten it from your operator with the SIM
    card, and it was assigned to the SIM card before a number had been
    associated, a contract written, or even a provider known.

    So I am sorry if you misunderstood. Of course you get the PUK code.
    It's just a problem if you can call up and get it just like that.
    Identify questions can be answered by anyone with knowledge about
    the identity.

    If the provider hands out the PUK over the phone, it's a sign of
    their incompetence. It also suggests that they know the PUK, to
    which they are not entitled.

    I am basing all this on German, French, and Swiss networks. However,
    it's mostly all Vodafone, Orange, and <barf>T-Mobile, and so I'd
    assume they have the same policies all over the place.

    How do you prove that you are the account holder?

    How so?
