Tip & How-To about Cell Phones

Why is my Nokia phone asking for a PUK code?

The PUK code is an 8-digit code from your service provider used to change a disabled Personal Identification Number (PIN) code. The PUK code will be requested when an incorrect PIN is entered multiple times. Please contact your service provider for this PUK code.
If you have already contacted your service provider and the PUK code provided did not work, it will be necessary to obtain a new Subscriber Identity Module (SIM) Card from your service provider. The PUK code is used to protect your phone from unauthorized access and if multiple attempts at entering the PUK code occur, the SIM card will become inactive for your protection.

The PUK, Personal Unblocking Key and PIN, Personal Identification Number are supplied by the Service Provider. They both are eight digit numbers with defaut being 00000000 (eight zeros). Try them. If they dont work means that you have changed them and forgotten. Ask your service provider. Also go to Security and unselect the asking for PIN and PUK for future ease of operation.

i need puk code for nokia 6110navigator IMEI354847/01/445453/8


the PUK code is for your simcard. If you have a GSM mobiile nokia, you can contact your mobile carrier and they'll provide you with the PUK code.
as per Nokia.com*

The PUKcode is an 8-digit code from your Service Provider used to change a disabled Personal Identification Number (PIN) code.

*Nokia did not give me this info personally.

Again, as stated, the PUK code is SIM card related. Not phone related.
