reflashing phone?

I'm not really sure what I'm supposed to do. I seem to have forgotten my security code for my Nokia 6111, not the PIN, the security code. I need a PUK2 activation code to be able to use it again, but I rang up O2 and they said it was a phone problem, so I rang up Nokia and they said I had to bring it into a service centre. Surely there's a way to gain the PUK2 code? Or if not, somehow reflash the phone from home? Thank you so much for any help and advice you can give me :smileyhappy:

It can't be sim related because I rang up O2 and they said it was a problem with my phone, and that I had to ring up Nokia and find out what the problem was.

Divachick, if it is your security code for the phone (default 12345) that you have changed and forgotten then you will need to have your phone flashed by a Nokia Service Centre. I cannot see where the PUK2 code comes into this. As previously stated by someone else PUK codes are related to your sim card, PUK2 being to unlock a sim card that has been blocked by entering incorrect PIN2 code too many times. PIN2 is normally used for advanced sim card features like Call Barring services. Personally I feel that if your phone is askng for PUK2 then either yourslf or someone else who has had hold of your phone has played about with security settings and blocked PIN2. O2 will have to give you this code. Take note also that if you enter 10 wrong PUK2 codes then your sim card will be destroyed !!!

The card doeesn't get destroyed as such it just needs to be returned to the network to be unlocked.
Is that an N95 in your pocket or are you just pleased to see me?!?

Taffytafftaff, I beg to differ. If asim card has become blocked due to too many (usually 10) PUK codes being incorrectly entered then the card has been destroyed and cannot be unlocked by the networks. If you convince the network that your sim card has become faulty rather than blocked then they may replace it for you but noe of the networks will even offer to un-block a blocked sim because they cannot do it

that's strange because they use to state in the handbooks that if you enter the PUK code wrong 10 times in a row then the SIM has to returned to the network to be unlocked as it becomes blocked to unlock codes. Can't imagine they would suddenly stop offering that?!?

Hi taffytafftaf,

I can honestly say that I have never read anywhere or known a network take back a sim card for unlocking. If I am wrong I stand corrected but I have spoken to 3 of the 5 major UK networks today and they all said the sim would need to be replaced in this event
Best Regards

Re: reflashing phone?

Maybe they don't bother to fix them anymore then. They did use to as they stated it in a manual before. Probably cheaper for them to just zap the data onto a new card I guess.
