go into a corporate store, the sim may need to be replaced, make sure it is a corproate and not an authorized reatailer

wingrider is right, you'll need to get a new SIM card, and they're free from Corporate Stores. When the SIM is locked because of failed PUK code attempts, it's locked permanently and unfortunately can not be unlocked.

Question, before I think I saw something about PUK codes being able to be seen from myAT&T accounts (I'm unfamiliar with the steps). Is this still in place or am I confusing it with something else? :smileytongue:

Normally a SIM card can be unlocked with a PUK code, but OP has mentioned that they entered it incorrectly 10 times, at which point the SIM is permanently locked. Is this what you're asking about Evandela?

Ahhh ok makes sense! Thanks Dmitry. Yeah I knew there was something about being able to unlock the SIM PUK code somehow. Just didn't know it would be permanently locked after 10 tries. :smileyhappy:
