Forgotten PIN / PUK Codes
If you have activated your SIM PIN code and then enter the wrong PIN code into your Lycamobile three times your SIM card will automatically lock. In this case you must enter your PUK code.
Your PUK code is displayed on the SIM card holder that came in your starter pack. Please retain it for safe keeping.

How can I stop receiving unwanted texts or SPAM?
When you receive a text from a company you have not given your number to, this is called SPAM. Unfortunately, Lycamobile is unable to prevent you from receiving these unwanted messages, unless you want to ban all text messaging. These companies have sophisticated ways of obtaining mobile phone numbers. One way to avoid SPAM is to be careful about what sites you give your mobile number to.
Why is there a flashing envelope on my mobile?
The flashing envelope indicates your text memory is full. This will usually prevent you from receiving more text messages until you have deleted a few old ones. You can delete messages from the Inbox, Sent or Draft folders to free-up some storage space. The number of messages you can store will vary from one handset to another.
