How to get PUK code

Hi the PUK code is the security code for the sim card and not any code to do with the phone, all you need to do to get the PUK code is call your service provider.
your service provider wont charge for giving you the code as the code belongs to you, all you need to tell them is your phone number or if you dont know that then the number printed on the sim card, they will then provide you with the 10digit PUK code for free over the phone.
this will then allow you to access the sim card.

The only place you can get the PUK code from is your service provider as their is no where else that keeps these codes, if you still have the card the sim card was attatched to then it will be written on their but if you no longer have this then the only way your going to get the code is by calling your service provider, they wont charge you for this as the code belongs to you,

you do have another option open to you though, if you dont need that sim card then you can go out and get another sim card and when you get given a new sim card you will get given the unique PUK code it will be written on the card the sim card is attatched to.

let me know if you need further assistance ok.

i have a tracfone lg it needs a puk code to unlock what do i do


Hi the PUK code is not any code for the phone the PUK code is the security code for the sim card, so the good news is your phone is not locked its just the sim card.

now the only way you can get the PUK code for that sim card is by calling your service provider as they hold all the PUK codes all you need to do is give them a call and give them the phone number of the sim card or the number printed on the sim card they will then give you the PUK code over the phone for free.

if you dont need to use that sim card then you can just go and get a new sim card then your phone wont ask for the PUK code, and if it does you will be given the PUK code when you get the new sim card it will be written on the card the sim card is attatched to

let me know if you need further assistance ok

what is PUK CODE (9402150042 ) this number


Please make a call to the Customer Care of Network Operator, they will tell your the code. There's no other way to get the code except from the Service Operator. They might ask your few questions related to the Sim Card, like your name or your address, tell them promptly and they will give you the puk code for your sim card. You will also be assisted on how to disable the security settings.
Note: if you keep entering random/unknown numbers/codes, the sim card will be locked and will be rejected. It'll not be usable anymore. Good luck.

Thanks for using FixYa.

i have a samsung tocco its asking me for a puk number because i blocked it up, can anyone help me with this problem,


Hi the PUK code is not a security code for the phone the PUK code is the security code for the sim card, to solve your problem all you need to do is contact your service provider and tell them you need your PUK code, they will ask you for the phone number of the sim card or the number printed on the sim card, they will then give you your PUK code they dont charge for doing this and they will give you the code over the phone and once entered this will give you access to your sim card again and get your phone working again.

the other option you have is if you dont need that sim card then you could just get a new sim card this then wont ask for the PUK code

doing either of the above will solve your problem, they wont charge for giving you the PUK code so that is your best option

unlock my phone , ouk code needed


Hi if your phone is asking for the PUK code then what this means is that the sim card is asking for its security code its not the phones security code but the sim cards.

now the only way you can get the PUK code is by calling your service provider and give them the sim cards number they will then give you the PUK code for free over the phone.

how ever the other way around this problem is by getting another sim card that your phone will accept.

if you have guessed the PUK code and got it wrong more than 5 times then this means that the sim card can no longer be used and you will need to get a new sim card.

let me know how you get on or if you need further assistance ok

I Need puk code for my sony ericsson k220i model


PUK means "personal unlocking key" .

The PUK code is asked if you enter a wrong pin 3 times.

You need to call your phone service company, they can retrieve the puk code from a database for free.

In your case you need to contact your SIM card phone provider technical support to unlock the SIM.


The PIN and PUK are related to the SIM card, not to the phone.

If you replace the SIM card with a different one, then the phone will not ask for the PUK anymore.
