SO there I was trying to put a security code on my phone, when suddenely, I get the message:
"SIM Card blocked!"
Panic set in.
There I was at the office. I opened my desk and looked for my original instructions, trying desperately to locate the so-called PUK code.
"Anyone know where the PUK code is located?" I asked my colleagues
They all shook their heads.
WIthin minutes, I was downstairs at reception, then out the door, after I had called Spacefon (0243.500.000) They promptly informed me that I had to go to a Spacefon shop.
"WHere are you?" asked the Spacefon operator
"East Legon" I blurted, "so, where's the closest place"
37 I knoew, and it looked good, so I rushed out, walking very briskly and purposefully. Flagged a taxi, and presto, within ten minutes, after walking past children going home from the French school nearby, I was at the Spacefon shop in 37 area.
The personable young woman with very pink and brown lipstick asked me to identify the problem.
She took my info, and secretly inputted the code (PUK code) -- much to my chagrin:-(
I had wanted to know the code, but all that didn't matter anymore!
Cos now, I had my very unique number BACK---and more than anything...
...my sanity as well.
Thanks, Spacefon-Areeba--as much as I never thought I would say this!!
