    All right guys, I've got a bit of a problem here.
    I'm running a Rooted Insipre with 4.0.3. I don't know anything about rooting and my friend did this for me, so all I know is it's most likely using ClockWorkMod if I'm looking at this right.
    The problem is: I enabled the SIM card lock, so whenever I turned on my phone the first thing it would do after boot is ask for a PIN to unlock my password. About maybe a month later, today, I woke up and booted my phone to find now it was asking for an 8-digit PUK code along with a 'New Pin Code'.
    I have no idea what a PUK code even is and I never set it.
    I've gotten to the point of having factory reset my phone and it's still asking for both codes.

    Thanks in advance for your help!

    Call AT&T, dont try to guess because you have limited guesses.

    Here is the PUK Code that you need. 13937055. It will then ask you for a new code, that has to be between 4 to 8 numbers. So use a set of numbers that you will remember.:)

    Your SIM card can be 'voided' if you use the wrong code 10 times in a row...and then you will be forced to purchase another? Wow. I had no idea. [​IMG]
