Sim puk

PUK stands for Personal Unblocking Key.
This is a unique eight digit code specific to your SIM card.
This is required when the PIN number is entered incorrectly 3 times on your mobile phone.
You are then given 10 attempts to enter your PUK if required.
If an incorrect PUK code is entered after the 10th attempt, you will block your SIM card permanently and will require a new SIM card.

PUK codes can be obtained through the following ways,
From the sim certificate included in most Starter packs
From your Privoder's customer care

My nokia 1200 is asking me to enter my PUK i just don't know what is that.


When you buy a sim card you are given a PIN and a PUK number. If you enter your PIN number wrong for 3 times your cell phone will block your sim asking you for the PUK code. You should look in the papers you have been given when you bought the SIM and you should find the PUK number. If not you should contact or visit your cell phone company to solve the problem!

I mistakenly entered the wrong Lock code, now the phone is asking me to enter the PUK code which I don't know what is it? please help me ,,


You should call your operator and ask for the PUK, there is no other way. PUK is SIM related, so they will know your PUK code. Don't trying guessing it, you will have to take it to service if you type in a wrong PUK!

Hi

The PUK code is your Sim security password, its coming with the sim packet, if your throw that packet then take you friends mobile and call to your service provider and ask the your PUK number he ask some security question for you, give the answer after he will give you PUK number of you SIM, don;t worry this is best way to solve you problem.


Good Luck

Phone has come up with PUK Lock on it. It needs a PUK code but to my knowledge it has never had one of these before. Turning the phone off & then on again doesn't do anything.


Its not the phone, but the sim that requires a PUK code. If you check your original sim starter pack, you would see your PUK code printed on it. I want you to know that its quite different fron the four digit pin code. Enter this puk code to unlock your sim. But if you cant find your starter pack, then I want to believe you know the number of you customer care, you could ask one or two people if you dont. Then, when you know the number, use some one else's line, but of your same network, perhaps a friend's, and call the customer care agents. Tell them your sim is requesting a PUK code which you dont have access to. Give them your phone number, and they should sort out the rest for you.
I hope this helps you.
Have a nice day.

You have entered the wrong SIM password so it is locked. You can unlock it easily. You have to call your network service provider and ask for PUK code. They can ask you SIM no. which is printed at the back of SIM card.
Then you can enter the PUK code and use the phone again.
Revert in case of any problem.

I locked myself out of my phone and its asking for the PUK code and i dont know the PUK code.


The PUK code is provided by the service provider. Don't try to enter the wrong PUK. It will block the SIM card. So you have to do one thing. Switch off your mobile and remove the SIM card from your mobile.You can see 19 digit number in your SIM card. Please note it down. After that plz refix your SIM card and switch it on. Then you plz call your service provider from other mobile (it should be same network) and ask for PUK. They will provide PUK code when you give that 19 digit number. You can enter that PUK to your phone.

Thanks & Regards

My mobile model is SAMSUNG SGH-L700. Now my phone is asking PUK code. I would like to know PUK code.


Hi, Puk code comes up when a phone requires a pin code and you time in the wrong three times precisely, it will ask for a Puk code.

Puk codes issues are Sim card problems not from the phone. You can unlock the code by checking on your Sim pack .When you bought the sim card it usually comes with a Puk code on the card. So check the card you will see the Puk code, enter the Puk code and after entering it, it will ask you for the pin number,it usually on the pack too.

Also if you don';t have the sim pack any more, you can simply contact the sim card service center for help. Might be through phone call. Get a friends phone the uses the same network with your sim card and use it to contact them. Or you could properly go the nearest outlet around and ask them for help..

Call is free..

Thanks for using fixya....

My phone is locked i don,t know the pin sonnyericson w705


Hi,

PIN CODE is SIM dependenet and not phone dependent

PUK code in PIN UNLOCKING CODE, which is required when you give PIN number wrongly for 3 times,
This code is OPERATOR specific and not phone specific and you have to call you operator and get PUK if PIN is blocked...

if you provide PUK code wrongly for 7 time, you sim may become useless, then you have to buy new SIM

NOTE: You should ask your service provider,get the PUK, give the PIN 3 times wrongly and it asks for PUk,provide the PUK and set the new PIN..
