I was in Settings and opened a SIM Card option, the exact name I can't remember (something to do with blocking other SIM cards from being inserted in the device?). It didn't open the first time, so I hit it again. Then my phone was instantly PUK-locked and I can't unlock my phone.
It says, "Emergency calls only / SIM card is PUK-locked." on the bottom of the unlock phone screen. When slide the lock icon to the unlock icon, my phone it says, "Enter PUK and new PIN Code" and I don't know what my PUK number is or what to do.
Some background Info:
I am using a rooted Galaxy Nexus GSM in Taiwan.
My network provider is Taiwan Mobile.
I recently installed a new ROM: Codename Android 1.2.0
I recently installed Franco's kernel (1/20/2012).
Thanks for the hel . It worked the first time. I used the method Nick792 used to block his galaxy Nexus GSM. It was a tad bit easier for me because metro left the holder( looks like a credit card with a hole where the sim chip came from) and in the upper left corner was the PUK number.
My phone is a Kyocera hydro life. Thanks a millio n. Kevin
My problem is this. I bought the phone from someone, then found out the phone was PUK locked. I don't have the original sim that caused the problem. Is there any way to reset the phone to remove the PUK code request? I've tried it with various SIMS, knowing the PUK code for these, but the phone won't accept them.
