@Leeesa53  it's probably asking for a network unlock code. That means your phone is locked you need to talk to your previous provider to get that code.

You would need a puk code which usually has to unlocked by your previous provider.  If you have a Samsung phone then they could provide one if you contact them.

Some good info from cappaj from his S7 and the messages he got.

 

"SIM network PIN blocked. Enter SIM network PUK."
- This is asking for Samsung's "master code" - I got this after entering the wrong code for the message below too many times. Samsung and/or your previous carrier can give you this.

 

"SIM network unlock PIN"
- This is asking for your previous carrier's unlock code - just contact them with your IMEI and they'll give it to you easy peasy. If you enter this incorrectly too many times, you'll get the error message above.
