Hello All.

I just moved back home and brought back with me a LG Quantum. I had really wanted the HTC Arrive from Sprint, but the lack of GSM capability was the deal breaker.

I purchased the LG Quantum SIM unlock code, but when I tried inputting the code, I got a PUK code error. I understand this a Unlock code that is associated with only the SIM card. So before I attempt unlocking again, my questions are:

1. Should I get another SIM card from my home network and re-input the code?
2. Has the PUK Code blocked the phone from accepting any SIM's other than AT&T?
3. IN the event that I have to get a PUK code, is this code specific to a SIM Card, the IMEI of the phone or AT&T?

Thanks for your help.

As i understand your trying to unlock the phone so you can use any SIM card?
1.No contact the service provider to get the puk code but i find it unusual that you would get a puk code when trying to unlock it. That usually happens when your try to enter a SIM pin in to many times which could have happend. in which case you have to contact that service provider to retrieve that PUK code.
2.The puk code is requested after the SIM pin was entered in to many times incorectly.
3.The PUK code is specific to the SIM card.
