Tip & How-To about Cell Phones

Phone is requesting a PIN / PIN2 / PUK / PUK2 code.

Your phone is equipped with one or more codes to protect it against unauthorized use. The PIN and PUK codes actually protect the SIM card, a small card inside your phone that establishes the network connection.
In most cases, your operator or service provider is the best source of assistance with PIN and PUK codes.

  • The most common code is the PIN (Personal Identification Number) code, which you set yourself and can activate and inactivate by following the instructions in your user guide.
  • The PIN2 code is a PIN code which acts as a second layer of protection for certain features of your phone. It functions in the same way as the PIN code, and more information is available in your user guide.
  • If the PIN code is entered incorrectly multiple times, your phone may request a PUK (Personal Unblocking Key) code. The PUK code is an 8-digit code provided by your operator or service provider.
  • If the PIN2 code is entered incorrectly multiple times, your phone may request a PUK2 code.
Please contact your operator or service provider for assistance with your PIN and/or PUK codes. If you have already contacted your service provider and the code provided did not work, you will have to obtain a new SIM card from your operator or service provider.

How can i bypass my security code?


The security code cannot be bypassed but possibly the information below will help

? Access codes

• The security code, supplied with the phone, helps to protect your phone against unauthorized use. The

preset code is 12345.

• The PIN code, supplied with the SIM card, helps to protect the card against unauthorized use.

• The PIN2 code, supplied with some SIM cards, is required to access certain services.

• PUK and PUK2 codes may be supplied with the SIM card. If you enter the PIN or PIN2 code incorrectly three

times in succession, you will be asked for the PUK or PUK2 code. If you do not have them, contact your local

service provider.
Select Menu > Settings > Security settings to set how your phone uses the access codes and security settings.

they ask me for pin code PUK CODE


Your phone is equipped with one or more codes to protect it against unauthorized use. The PIN and PUK codes actually protect the SIM card, a small card inside your phone that establishes the network connection.

If the PIN code is entered incorrectly multiple times, your phone may request a PUK (Personal Unblocking Key) code. The PUK code is an 8-digit code provided by your operator or service provider.

The PUK (Personal Unblocking Key) code is entered incorrectly multiple times. This can inactivate the SIM card. If inactivation appears to be permanent, contact your operator or service provider for a new SIM card.

call your cell phone provider to get this number. hope this helps :)
