    My X10 is locked with the message SIM card PUK locked. I have the PUK code but cannot get the keypad up on screen to enter. The only thing I can do is make an emergency call.
    I have been told to take it to vodafone shop to unlock.
    Any suggstions would be most appreciated.

    if you pressed emergancy call, does it open a dialer to enter the code maybe?

    The solution is
    Tap Emergency call and enter the following sequence using the keypad: * * 0 5 * [PUK] * [new PIN] * [new PIN] #.
    It works!!!

    Once the sim is PUK locked, nothing can be done, as that means the PUK code has been entered incorrectly too many times. So unfortunately, you will have to get a new sim
