Hmm unusual that is... I have the 705y running CRdroid which is based on 17.1 and never had that appear when I installed my sim.Hi,
thanks for the build. This brought me to look forward to using my old Tab S again. Well, I have tried out lineage-17.1-20211011-UNOFFICIAL-klimtlte.zip on my SM-t705. I was able to flash it using TWRP. After booting up the device flickered and then asked directly for the PUK Code of my SIM card (without asking for the PIN at all). After another reboot (without entering any code) only 1 try has been left over, so I decided to take out the card, look up the serial number on the back and gather the PUK for it. When I re-inserted it, it already was disabled and does not get detected anymore. Maybe I should have used another device for the last try...
Seems to be similar to this problem (the only google hit I can find for this): https://android.stackexchange.com/q...-and-getting-asked-for-puk-on-lineage-os-17-1 But there is no real information.
Anyone experienced this before? Any clue what might have happened. I am afraid of inserting the replacement card into the device. How to proceed?
You mentioned you have your PUK Personal Unlock Key handy, then you should be good to go. As your network provider is the only one that can deactivate your Sim.
When you incorrectly enter a Sim pin 3 times all it does is lock the sim so you can't use it not deactivate it. Your PUK is what is used to Unlock the sim so you can use it again.
