    Question PUK Number retrieval or support?

    My damn phone started bombing out and I couldn't get it to the start up screen. (SE w900i)

    Why this happened I don't know?

    Removed the battery a few times to get it to the start up screen.

    Then enter my PIN, it doesn't take!!! MEGA !!!
    Enter the PIN a 2nd time and still notthing.
    I reckon that I should remove the battery again and then get back to the start up screen to enter the PIN.
    Enter it (the correct one yes) and now its gone and !@#$!@$% blocked itself.

    All the stuff (paperwork) that goes with it are long gone (stupid me yes).

    Is there any number that one can call to get it?
    I'm with Nashua Mobile on MTN and their (Nashua's) k@k site has no mention of these procedures if they infact exist.

    The FAQ section on the MTN site is in Flash I think and I can't view it here at the office

    I'll have to resort to waiting till I get home.
    But if anyone has any help to offer it would be sincerely appreciated.

    I urgently need to get my phone up and running ASAP - this is a matter of PUNANI!!!!

    TIA

    Still on hold The music repeated a few times, then the phone ringed like for a few times as if I was being put through to an operator, then the music starts again. Then this whole process repeats itself Whats up at 173?

    Edit: Fine, I put the phone down, was a free call in any case - But I don't think anyone at 173 Wanted to pick up the phone tonight...

    I tried at least

    Edit (again): Return the favour? Easy Easy! Just buy my Sapphire ATI Radeon HD3850 512MB AGP as advertised here: http://mybroadband.co.za/classifieds...uct/4709/cat/3 coolkthxbye

    Eish - not looking to do any upgrades on my PC. Opted for the Xbox360

    I know its a free call, but still its a bit much to ask of you to hold on the whole time

    They must have been infected by Telscum's DSL H(N)otline when MTN was in talks with Telscum to buy them out

    You really should not post your numbers or other personal info on a public forum.

    PS welcome.

    Default PUK number - Mission Impossible!!!

    I can't seem to get puk no. anywhere! Have a contract no. with Mtn. Phoned Mtn 173 got redirected to 808....got redirected back to 173. Eventually after being ping-ponged between 173 n 808 for 2days, I am told my no. is registered under the mtn service provider: ABLEF Trading. So, I call the numbers given to me by useless mtn customer service (My ASS!).....
    This one; 0112523815 - DOES NOT EXIST!!!...... This one; 0860888999 consultant says my no. IS NOT registered with them!! I am now f#*king gatvol!! Can't believe that its such an impossible mission to get a simple damn puk no! Un-f*%king believable!!! Mtn SUCKS!
