Hey all


I accidentally PUK locked my GG sim whilst messing around with a ZTE Blade running Cyanogen Mod 7. It was easy enough to obtain the PUK from GG but entering it into the phone proved to be a bit of a chore to say the least.


For those of you who are experiencing similar problems I have now found out how to do it. Please see below:



Touch the Emergency call button at the bottom/middle of screen of your phone and enter this with the keypad
**05*<PUK Code>*<enter a new pin>*<confirm the new pin>#
Example input: **05*123456789*1234*1234#
I'm not sure if this will work on a stock ZTE Blade but it may help some of you who are stuck.
Hope this helps!!
