Unblock your sim card and get reconnected with all of your loved ones. There is nothing more frustrating than forgetting your pin code and having your sim card blocked by your network provider. Although this is a safety feature which was put in place to help save you further expense should your phone be stolen or should the wrong people be trying to get in to your phone, it can end up being very frustrating. There is a simple solution though, every time a person purchases a sim card, that sim card has a unique PUK number which is printed generally on a card which comes with the sim. If you phone is blocked, you simply need to enter this PUK number to unblock you sim card.
Should you need to unblock your sim card after blocking the number because you reported your phone as you thought it had been stolen, this process is a little bit more complicated. You have to either visit one of your service providers service centers, or call the service centre hotline and ask them to unblock the sim. However, this will require proof of identification and can be a pain if you are on contract and your parents are the people who the contract’s name was taken out on. Your service provider will then require their proof of identification. If you are not on contract, then you can block the sim card and simply visit one of your nearest cellular network stores and transfer the number to a new sim card or try and unblock it in store for you.
As all phones now purchased have to be undergo RICA verification, the process of blocking and unblocking a sim card has become less complicated. However, should you have purchased your cellphone and sim card before the RICA regulation came in to play then you may face some difficultiy. All in all though, the simplest way to sort out this problem is to visit your nearest service providers stores and ask what is required to get you back on the airwaves.
