Lindipsy, it seems that the phone is asking you for your SIM's pin number. it should be written on it somewhere.
Usually 0000 or 1234 work, if there is no real SIM PIN number lock.

Orange Sim Card, PUK code needed...


Hi,
As ginko correctly said above, The PUK is exclusive to your sim card, not your actual phone.
Easiest option is to obtain the PUK from Orange customer services. Call 450 from anothe Orange handset, or 07973 100450 from a landline.
Make a note of your PUK when you get it, because it will always remain the same (for that sim card)

Orang puk code


You need to contact Orange, is the only way to get the PUK.
Here is general Orange website.
At the top there is a box that says group sites, select your country in the box and then Sign up to manage your account online, so that you can visualize page with customer service number.

Once you get the number phone them, they will ask phone number and model number and give out your puk code.
If you post here a new request with your country we can find the number straight away.
Alternatively put the following sentence in google, you should find the number the same

orange customer service numbers

Good luck

Unlock code


SIM pin code:
This is a pin code that locks the sim card until you enter the correct code. This protects your account, even
if your sim is put into another handset. To reset it, you need the PUK code:
Pin Unlock Code (PUK)
If you miss key (or forget) your SIM pin code, and enter the wrong one 3-5 times in a row, the SIM will lock up, and you’ll need to enter the PUK unlock code to release it. You should ask your Network Service Provider for this code when you need it. Don’t try to guess it, because after a few wrong guesses, the SIM card will be permanently disabled.
Phone Security Code:
This locks the handset, as opposed to the sim card. You can also set some handsets to only accept a “new” sim if the phone security code is entered. To reset it, you need the Master code code:
Master Reset Code
Sometimes known as the Master Code, this allows you to unlock a handset if you have entered the Security Code wrongly too many times.
Which is the one that you want?
Special Code/Service Provider Lock Code:
This code is required to allow a phone locked to a particular network's SIM cards to be used with a SIM card from another network. Orange and T-mobile lock handsets in this way, though O2 and Vodafone are beginning to lock PAYG and WAP handsets. The unlock code varies from individual handset to handset.
Blacklisting:
This is not a security code, but it works like one! To help combat mobile phone thefts, the networks share a database of the IMEI (International Mobile Equipment Identity) of mobile phones that have been reported stolen. Once a phone is on this list, it will not be allowed to use any of the networks.
This can be a risk if you buy a second-hand phone, because if it has been stolen, or if an unscrupulous seller makes an insurance claim after selling, the phone you bought in good faith may be permanently disabled.
Be very careful to check the source of a second-hand phone!

I need a puk code for an orange phone? without having to go to the problem of phoning up orange that takes ages!! the phone is an LG ISO 800.


The PUK code comes with the SIM card, the code is printed on the plastic card that the SIM card was attached to. If you don't have it only your network service provider can give it to you.

Security code


The Master code is for resetting the Security code, nothing else.
The SIM pin code is the one you use to switch your phone on.
The PUK (Personal Unblocking Key) is the code you use to reset the SIM pin code.
Your memory card doesn't make any difference. Whether it's in or out of the phone.
