Re: my phone is asking for pin and puk codes?
You have entered the pin code wrong 3 times now you are required to enter a puk code to reset the pin code. imei has noting todo with puk code which is on the sim card which is not related to the phone at all.
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.

PUK codes are different to pin codes or passwords
to get a puk code call your service provider on a different phone, provide proof or ownership of the account and they will give it to you then you may use your PIN code or password ro go through the process of setting a new PIN code
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.
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)
At the time when you enter a wrong pin number three times the phone asks you for a PUK number. The PUK code is generally eight digit number. This PUK number is an unlocking code which helps you to unlock the phone and use it. If you enter a wrong PUK number 10 times than you simcard gets rejected. Then you will have to buy a new simcard. It might happen that your phone might ask you for PUK2 after you enter your PUK number. You can find the PUK code is in your SIM card documentation Starter Pack. If you do not have this then contact your phone service provider. Your cell phone service provider can give you the PUK code once they have confirmed your identity to prevent any stolen SIM access.
PUK codeand PIN Code:
Pleasedont try more than 3 times.If you try more than 3 times the Sim will getlocked.And it will ask for PIN code.Both these PUK and PIN code can be givenonly by the network service provider. Please call the network service providerof your mobile.And ask him to provide the PUK code or PIN code.He will ask yousome basic details like name,date of birth for his verification.And hewill provide you the PUK and PINcode.This is done for free of cost.

For NOKIA mobile the default PIN is 0000 and Security Code is 12345.
It asks PUK code because you must have entered wrong PIN code more than 3 times,To get the PUK code you should call your serivce provider.
They will give you the PUK code if you provide correct informations of yours.They do this to make sure that the mobile belongs to you only.
After entering the PUK code it asks for your PIN code so please type the PIN code which you want and remember it.
You enter the PUK code, when the SIM has been locked by too many attempts at entering the PIN code for the SIM.
When the PUK code is needed, the phone will specifically ask you to enter it. If you want to trigger the PUK code request, enter the PIN code for the SIM card incorrectly a few times. There is no key press codes to trigger the PUK code prompt.
Each PUK code is specific to each SIM card, and has nothing to do with the phone itself.
And the PUK code is also not related to the phone security/lock code (the default for the security/lock code on the phone is 12345 on Nokia phones).
the puk code prompt comes up when you have entered the pin code wrong 3 times.
to get the puk code you need to call your phone service provider, the will give it to you, if you try to gess the puk code wrong too many times it will make your ssim card useless, so get the right code from your provider, they are the only ones that have it.
after the puk code it will ask you to enter a new pin code and then confirm the pin code. then the sim will work normally and ask for pin again next time instead of puk, puk will come again if you enter pin wrong 3 times.
If it ask for a PIN code then it means it's asking for the password/code you have entered on your SIM card. If it asks for Security code then that means it's the password/code for the phone.
Entering three invalid PIN codes on your phone then your PIN may be locked and you can only unlcok it by entering the PUK code on your SIM. PUK code is available on the sim card pack. Once it's ented, you have the option of changing your PIN code. Just be sure to remember your PIN code so the same incident won't happen again. If it ask for security code, enter the code you have for the phone but if you don't remember setting a security code, then you may try the default security code of Sony Ericsson phones which is 00000.
