Unlocking your phone (NUC)

4: Newbie

Hello I have a SIM from Three which I am trying to use in an S7  I am getting the Sim network pin blocked enter network PUK message  I have used the NUC code provided by Vodafone but it is not working  There is nothing wrong with the SIM as it is working just fine in an unlocked S10+ and an unlocked A3 (2016).

Hi, I am having trouble getting my Samsung Galaxy A3(6) unlocked. I entered the IMEI number correctly etc but the NUC sent by Vodafone is not being accepted despite being entered correctly. I've possibly now attempted to enter the NUC too many times. Could you help me out please?

Thanks.

I received my NUC via email but when I put in the other SIM and enter the code as prompted it says the unlock has been unsuccessful. I have checked the details and they are correct. I have a Samsung S8+. Thank you!

I've recieved my unlock code, but get the message saying 'unsuccessful' when I enter it.  The IMEI number of the phone is the same as that listed in the email my unlock code came in.  The handset is a Samsung Galaxy S7. 

 

As an edit:  the handset was on a vodafone 2 year contact, and I used that until I upgraded to S9 somewhere around Oct 2018.
