Your phone will ask for PUK code when you entered the PIN code wrongly several times depending upon the mobile make. The mobile asks for PUK code so that unauthorized persons do not use your mobile for wrong cause.
To get PUK code please contact your service provider through phone or go directly to their office. They will provide you the PUK code for your mobile. The PUK code for mobile phone.so that you can open your phone. When you planning to call your service provider you cannot use your mobile as it is fully locked. Please use some other mobile with same network to call your service provider.
While you get the PUK code ,the service provider customer care officer will ask for your personal details to check whether the mobile belongs to you only. If they are satisfied with your answers they will provide with the PUK code
DONOT enter the PUK code several times wrongly,It will block your sim card permanently.
This PUK code is FREE. You no need to pay any sum to get the PUK code

I install a securitry software and now the phone is blocked and i asking me thePUK code

Puk means personal unlocking key with eight digit code..
It asks when you enter the wrong code for three times..
Puk code can be given 10 wrong attempts so in the 10th attempt the sim will be blocked..
Puk code can be found in the sim card documents of your purchase..
If you dont have no problem..
Call your service provider of your sim card and tell the problem..
They will ask you the info of sim card holder..
After verifying the details they will give you the puk code and you can enter and unlock it..

my phone is asking for a PUK code and i do not know what it is. i have a att lg vu

Hi, when you have a simcard it has a password to unlock it, which you made. If you fail to correctly enter your password three times. The phone will stay locked, till you enter a second code which you get with your simcard, that is called the PUK code. It is meant to be an extra safety system, so no one can try the wrong simcard lock code for more then three wrong attempts. Call your provider of the simcard. They can give you a puck code if you lost it I think. So remember to be careful when entering your simlock code.
