How to unlock SIM Card PUK PIN codes?

Relevance: 100%      Posted on: September 6, 2008

The mobile SIM card comes with a PUK (Personal Unblocking Key) code or PIN (personal identification number). The main purpose of these codes is to provide a security. These codes are normally used to prevent your SIM card from unauthorized use, theft or loss. The PUK is enclosed in a machine-generated security paper. Make sure to take care in storing this paper as it will be your only copy. Is the PUK code related to the phone brand or model? The PUK code has nothing to do with your mobile phone's brand (i.e. Nokia, Motorola, Samsung, Nextel, Sony-Ericsson, LG) or…

Relevance: 96%      Posted on: July 10, 2012

When Google announced the Galaxy Nexus running on Ice Cream Sandwich last year, one of its fancy features is the Face unlock. But we discovered that you can actually trick the lock screen by putting a picture of the registered face in front of the device. It's not that secure after all. While developing their latest buttery OS, Google decided to put in a little extra time to revisit this unlock feature and make it more secure. They called it “Liveness Check”, an added security feature on Android Jelly bean that requires users to blink first in order to unlock

The biggest news for 2009 so far is the YellowSn0w unlocking application for the iPhone 3G. You can now insert any SIM card into your iPhone 3G -- good news for consumers, bad news for telcos. The "yellowsn0w" application works with the latest iPhone 3G modem firmware (02.28.00) so if your iPhone is not yet on 2.2, just hook it up on iTunes and upgrade it before unlocking. You will also need to jailbreak your phone first (by downloading and installing QuickPwn). Once that's done, you can now follow the unlocking procedures here. I have yet to do this on…

Smart Bro replaces Smart Wifi

Relevance: 70%      Posted on: April 26, 2006

Smart Communications thought their Smart Wifi brand is knee deep in the mud right now that the best thing to remedy the bad publicity is to re-name it. So, they came up with Smart Bro (is that a shortcut for broadband?) They did some clean-up and even remove pages from their official site which mentioned Smart Wifi. Too bad that page is already #1 on Google, Yahoo and MSN for the term "smart wifi". (I suppose my blog will take over that spot, eh?) Migs pointed out that that Smart Bro is also a browser and a few days after…
