There is no simple way to find a lost PIN code. PIN code belongs to SIM card.The only way to find a PIN code is by contacting the provider (phone conpany that issued SIM card), and talking with a rep, or alternatively going to an authorized phone shop from phone provider.
Other way out is replacing the SIM card.
Note: if you enter the wrong PIN three times you will trigger the PUK code. PUK code was provided with phone or SIM original documentation(check SIM package or phone box). PUK still belongs to the card, not to the phone.Having phone locked with PIN or PUK does not change much the situation. If you lock PUK, see:PUK code.
If you have lost your pin number, the only way to rest the PIN is either using a different SIM card, or entering wrong PIN three times, triggering in PUK code, and then calling SIM card phone company to unlock the PUK.
A lost PIN cannot be retrieved, only the PUK can be discoverd, but you will have to call the phone company.
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.
SIM card provider is the brand on the SIM card. For example if you have
a Vodafone card, you will need to call Vodafone to get the PUK.
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.
