  1. Kumar, I did all of the above, but my problem was not solved. I have a galaxy xcover 4s a friend brought me from the Czech Republic, and I live in Costa Rica. When I insert the chip, it says “aim network pin blocked, enter sim network puk” then I have two options, unlock and dismiss. Pressing unlock does nothing, so I only can press dismiss. How can wipe out that lock they put on the phone, so I can use it anywhere in the world? What you posted above is to restore the factory defaults via firmware as I understand, but it didn’t break the lock. I tried with Dr fone toolkit and it says that for now, they don’t have the solution for this model, then I tried to do it manually but when I get in the advanced service mode, all is blank, there is not a single thing to do there like if they erased all possibilities, can u help me?

    • First of all, your problem is not related to mobile. There is no issue in Mobile. PUK Code is created to protect SIM Card. Ask your Mobile Operator from the other SIM and give your details regarding this. They will provide you the PIN.
