SOURCE: UNBLOCK MY PUK CODE

Hi everyone

Every PUK code is unique so nobody can tell you your PUK number, but i will tell you what you can do!
1) If you still have your packet that your Sim Card came in, you should find your PUK number in there, if you don't have the packet, please read bellow.

2) You must get a phone that is on the same network as your phone and call the networks Customer Care and ask them for your PUK number, they will ask you for your phone number, then they will tell you your PUK number. Once you have done this, you will be able to reset your Pin number so you will be able to go into your phone again.

Please also remember to give this solution a FixYa! rating if it helps you.

Kind regards

SOURCE: HOW CAN I UNLOCK GLOBE SIM CARD PUK CODE?

The puk code is sim card spesific it comes with the sim card when you get it or you can get it by calling your phone service provider of the sim card to get the puk code.
if you have entered the puk code wrong too many times you will make the sim card useless and you will have to contact your phone service provider for a new sim card, it will probably cost.

SOURCE: PUK disabled and Sim Card Blocked on Samsung SGH-M300?

PUK means "personal unlocking key" .

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

You need to call the phone company that released the SIM card, they can retrieve the PUK code from a database for free.

In your case you need to contact your SIM card 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.

What does. Puk. Mean?


  1. PUK is the code required to unlock a GSM SIM card that has disabled itself after an incorrect PIN code was entered 3-5 times in a row. See: PIN. If an incorrect PUK code is entered 5-10 times, the SIM card will permanently block (disable) itself.

When i put my sim card in my phone it keeps on saying ( PUK disabled.sim blocked)


It sounds like your sim card needs to be replaced. Usually it will ask you to enter a PUK code to unlock it. After a few attempts at incorrectly entering the PUK code the SIM will become disabled due to the inherent security of the SIM. Contact your service provider to replace the SIM for you. They can usually replace if free of charge. Hope this helps!

My phone says puk disabled card blocked. what should i do?


The PUK enters when a wrong PIN code is entered three times.

The only ways to unlock PUK are:

Finding PUK code printed on original phone or SIM card documentation.
Calling the SIM card company and getting PUK free of charge.
Replacing the SIM card.

The PUK is linked to SIM card not to phone. To unlock you can look for SIM card phone company website, then contact them by phone.
Replacing the SIM card, you won't be asked for PUK anymore.

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.

If an incorrect PUK code is entered 5-10 times, the SIM card will permanently block (disable) itself.

You must contact the carrier (service provider) that issued the SIM card to obtain the PUK code.
