What is the p.u.k. # for a samsung sgh-t105g IMEI# 356622/04/180178/9


PUK - code kotroy must be granted by the operator when buying a phone connection.Without this code, or ten times you enter an incorrect PUK, your phone will becompletely blocked!

Every time the telephone, you must obtain your PIN-code (4 to 8 digits), except forsituations when you unplug the PIN-code request the appropriate setting your phone.Be careful when typing PIN-code! If the code is typed incorrectly three times in succession, SIM-card is automatically blocked.

To unlock your phone you will need:
- Enter PUK1 and click "OK"
- Enter the new PIN-code and press "OK"
- Press to confirm

To set the code provided 10 attempts. If the 10 times you've dialed is incorrect PUK-code - card is blocked completely, and you have to buy a new SIM-card. Recover PINcodes and PUK-if you have forgotten them - can be turned into a subscription service.You can disable the PIN-code request, but then the protection against unauthorized use of SIM-card will not be provided.

My phone asked for a puk code i kept on guessing and eventually it said sim blocked and i cant do anything why?


A PIN Unlock Code (PUC) or PIN Unlock Key (PUK) is used in GSM mobile phones and some smartcards to unblock a blocked card.
Because you tried too many times without a correct code, your SIM card is blocked and needs to be replaced. I would go to your Cell provider's store and purchase/replace yours. :)

PUK disabled card blocked


Well it doesn't block your card, it just blocks your sim card, If you will try a diffrent SIM in your phone that will work and if you want your sim to unlock than contact your Connection service provider means the company from you have you phone connection and you need to give them your sim no, which wouldb located at the back of your SIM and they will provide you with your PUK no for the SIM card.

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.

Unblocking My Sim Card


THE SIM CARD CANNOT BE UNLOCKED. YOU WANT TO BUY A DUPLICATE SIM CARD OF RS 125 IN LOCAL OFFICE OF SIM CARD COMPANY. THE NEW SIM CAN BE ISSUED AFTER SUBMIT THE I.D OF ORIGNAL SIM.

Puk disabled card blocked


if you have entered the puk code wrong around 10 times you have disabled the sim card, you can cut the sim card into peaces and throw it out from the window since you will have to contact your phone service provider for another sim card or if you have prepaid buy another set.


before throwing the sim card away I suggest you contact the service provider to see if they can help you. if the card isnt blocked yet.. or if you can still enter a puk code you might be able to fix it by calling the provider and getting the correct code if not, its useless card.
