PUK stands for Personal Unblocking Key. This is a uniqueeight-digit code specific to your SIM card. This is required when the PINnumber to unlock your mobile phone is entered incorrectly 3 times. You are thengiven 10 attempts to enter your PUK code. If an incorrect PUK code is enteredafter the 10th attempt, you will block your SIM card permanently and willrequire a new SIM card from your mobile phone provider.
PUK codes can be obtained through the following ways -The PUK code is in your SIM card documentation Starter Pack.If you do not have this then -Please contact your phone service provider.
Your cell phone service provider can give you the PUK code once you give themyour account details and they have confirmed your identity.For details to obtain the PUK code for the SIM card, pleaseclick on this link and follow my instructions.

SOURCE: dont have puk number
PUK is a pin unblock code - your provider can get it for you.
*#06# is NOT your PUK it is your IMEI number
Since the PUK is sim card specific it will not be on the box or anywhere with the phone you MUST call your provider for it.
If you enter the PUK incorrectly 5 times you will burn out your sim and need to purchase a new sim.

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.
plz rate this solution as i have a whole page of unrated posts, thanks

Contact the orginal carrier fro an unlock code. That is the safest. If you are unable to get the code through them there are tons of websites out there that provide unlock codes. most cost $$. Be careful though,. If the wrong code is entered too many times the phone will be permanently locked to the original carrier

If you log onto your companys website under your account and go to the option that says devices you can get the puk code- If you enter in too many numbers it will permanently block your sim card and you will have to buy a new sim card from your cell phone company- they are about $20
