Customer Question

I have a LG840G cell phone. When I turn it on (boot) it immediately shows PUK Code at top if screen and I can't go any farther. It I'd hung there. How do I get rid if this screen and continue to get a normal boot-up?

The "Enter PUK code" message means that the SIM card is blocked. Please contact Customer Care Center at 1-***-***-**** so that a representative can assist you with unlocking the SIM card.
