    I wonder if any of you clever chaps can give me any advice on my daughter's
    faulty mobile phone. She tells me she dropped it (there may be more to it
    than this - she is only eleven) -- it doesn't appear to be physically
    damaged -- I suspect she has pressed a few too many buttons. The phone is a
    Sagem MYX-2 (on Orange PAYG) and it just displays the message 'sim blocked'.
    It wasn't protected by a PIN number start-up, so I can't see how she has put
    in the wrong PIN or anything. I have ordered a new sim for her, but she'd
    rather like to be able to retrieve her phonebook -- and keep her original
    phone number. She bought the phone off a neighbour's kid a while back and I
    last time we tried Orange Technical Support they asked for the original
    registrant's password -- which we haven't got, neither has the neighbour as
    they can't remember it -- without this password they won't help us.
    Anyone got any suggestions?
  2. The PUK code should have been on the cover for the original SIM card.

    You have entered three incorrect PIN codes. Enter your PUK code to
    unblock your SIM Card. You need to enter : **05*PUK*PIN*PIN# You need to
    enter your PUK code (Personal Unblocking Key) given by your network
    provider. 10 errors permanently block your SIM Card. You need to contact
    your network provider to get a new one.

    I had this on a Nec DB2000. I had to dismount it and take off the
    back-up battery (surface mounted) leave it like this for tem minutes,
    resoldered and it worked immediately.
