I bought one SAMSUNg SGH-J700i. When I am trying to poweron the phone it asks for Phone lock password which is 1234 and opened but immediatly it asks for SIM loack password. But I am not awrae of any SIM...


If u enter PIN code incorrectly 3 times, PIN will be blocked n phone will ask you for PUK(Personal Unblocking Key). This is a 8 digit code. If u enter Incorrect PUK for 10 times Your SIM will be lock permanently.

Your cell phone service provider can(Call from other no. n ask tell them for puk of ur no.) give you the PUK code aft3r answering simple security question.
Later enter PUK than enter new PIN, confirm new pin. Go to -Setting
-Security
-SIM lock
-off
Disable SIM n Later Phone Lock
PS:(You have to block your PIN to get access to PUK,
Default PIN- 0000, 12345)

My phone will only allow me to use the emergency call number, It say PUK blocked? Please assist.


A PUK blocked message pops up after one enters the wrong PUK code 7 or 10 times in a row, depending on the service provider. A PUK code is required only after one blocks the SIM PIN code.

Many times, it may so happen that you block your PIN code. You will need to call the customer care of the service provider of your cell phone for the PUK code or refer the SIM certificates for the PUK code. If you enter the wrong PUK code 7 to 10 times in succession, it will lead to PUK blocked. After entering the wrong PUK code 10 times in a row, the SIM card becomes permanently invalid or locked. The only solution is to purchase a new SIM card.

PUK blocked requires you to get a new SIM card. It does not matter whether you use a Nokia Cell Phone, LG Cellphone, Motorola Cell Phone, Samsung or Sony Ericsson handset. The handset is not the one that's deactivated, but its the SIM card that gets blocked. So, contact your network store for further help and getting yourself a new SIM card (new phone number). I hope this article on PUK blocked on cell phone has helped you find the solution to your phone problems.

I locked myself out of my phone when a phone lock and now I cannot get into it. is there any code or anything I can do to like bypass or just reset the phone? it's a samsung comback.


PUKs, or personal unblocking keys, are used to unblock a mobile phone which becomes blocked. Mobile phones may become blocked when a PIN (personal identification number) is entered incorrectly on three consecutive occasions. In some instances, the phone may become blocked, which requires a PUK to unblock it, and in other instances, the SIM (Subscriber Identity Module) card itself becomes blocked and again will require a PUK to unblock it. Mobile phones are also blocked when they are reported stolen and if there is an outstanding payment on the account. It is important to differentiate between unblocking phones (using a PUK) and unlocking mobile phones (using another type of code). NOTE: It is a criminal offence for anyone to attempt to unblock a mobile phone, other than the network provider who put the block on the phone. If your phone has become blocked by mistake, for example you have entered the PIN incorrectly on three consecutive occasions, then you need to contact the mobile phone network operator with your details. To explain a little more, specific to your mobile phone network, You need to go to your Service providers, web site & navigate your way to the specific PUK details for your mobile phone network operator. Usually you have to Register your phone to get a PUK code

I was try to put code for my phone but sim card stop work massage on screen pin blocked inter puk no i donot know what is puk code


Pincode stands for PERSONEL IDENTIFICATION NUMBER. It is the fourdigit number which is used to lock the phone. The phone will ask for the code when you switch on it.With out entering the correct pin code you can't access your phone.If you enter the pin code wrongly for a specified(normally 3)number of ties your sim will get locked.You can't use that sim in other phones also without unlocking it.PUK code (PERSONAL UNLOCK KEY)is used tounlock the sim card if it is blocked.PUK code is provided by the network operators.If the PUK code is entered 10 times wrongly the sim card gets permenantly blocked.

just call ur network provider customer care and ask for the puk code.

My phone is blocked. It says "PUK innactivated.Card Blocked" Can you help me ?


hi, the PUK code is the security code for the sim card and not the phone, so the message your being told is that this sim card is now blocked this happens if the wrong PUK code has been entered more than 10 times.

All you need to do is get a new sim card for the network your phone is locked to or the same network as the sim card that is in the phone now, once you put this new sim card in you should be able to use your phone, if how ever it still asks for a PUK code then all you need to do is call the service provider for that sim card and ask them for the PUK code they will give you this code for free over the phone

so your phone is not locked its just the sim card, it could be locked if the sim card has been not used for 180 days as they get switched of after this long with no use, so putting a new sim card in your phone will solve your problem

Puk blocked


Hi and welcome to FixYa,

A PUK (Personal Unblocking Key) is the code required for enabling/unlocking a sim card. This disabling/lock is a result of erroneously entering the PIN (Personal Identification Number) multiple times. Depending on the SIM card issuer, erroneously entering the PUK code multiple times would result to a permanently blocked/disabled SIM card. The PUK code is an OTW (one time write) only and therefore the only way to open the card is with the PUK code.

In all instances, it has nothing to do with the phone itself but with the SIM card, hence, the LG Vu CU920 would still work with another SIM card.

Hope that this be of initial help/idea. Good luck and thank you for using FixYa.
