When you enter a wrong Pin code three times, the phone goes in lock mode, and ask you for the puk code.

The puk code was enclosed with the original sim card documentation.

If you lost it the only ways to recover the PUk code are either paying a phone shop (they will phone virgin), or calling virgin mobile customer service by yourself. They will ask your personal details, and retrieve the PUK code from database.

Sim lock


PUK means "personal unlocking key" .

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

The PUK code is a code associated with the SIM card and not with the phonelb_icon1.png.

You have only two ways to get rid of the PUK code. Either you replace the SIM card , or you call phone providerlb_icon1.png that issued the sim cadr (eg. At&T, Virgin, Tmobile , Vodafone, Telecom etc.)

You need to call the phone company that released the SIM card, they can retrieve the PUK code from a databaseicon1.png for free.

In your case you need to contact your SIMicon1.png 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

Virgin mobile code


HI If you are asking for pin contact your service provider , he will give you a default pin .

If you try pin more than few predefined no of times your phone will ask PUK code which can also be given only by your service provider which is specific for each and every mobile number . Donot try PUK code many times or else your sim will be blocked and you will need a new sim.
Contact your sim customer care department over phone. Its free of cost to get the pin or puk no.

Go to the nearest service outlet of your service provider they can also help you.

There is no other go than the above procedure only your service provider can give it nobody else in this world nor any software.

I bought the phone and it is in virgin but i want the phone to be unlocked so i can put my vodafone sim in


Ring virgin from your handset and ask them for the code to unlock your phone,

The other way is
If you enter wrong password for more then 5 times,it ll ask you to enter the puk number....now call your customer care and
get the puk number...enter the puk number in the space given for password....thats it...problem is fixed
If you had locked your mobile then update the formware all saved passwords will be deleted.
Hope its helped

How do I get a puk code for virgin network Australia


Puleld from Virgin Mobile UK:A PERSONAL UNLOCKING CODE (PUK) WILL GET YOU BACK INTO YOUR PHONE ONCE IT'S LOCKED YOU OUT Locked out? If you've entered your PIN incorrectly 3 times, then unfortunately your phone will be locked.
But hey, it's no problem at all - what you need to get back up and running is a PUK code. That's your phone's Personal Unlocking Code.
How to get your PUK code
Simply visit Your Account and you can pick up your PUK code there.
Need some help with your PUK code?
If you accidentally enter your PUK code 10 times, then you'll need to get a replacement SIM. We can send one out to you - just send us an email or give us a call on 0845 6000 789.

Pulled from Virgin Moble AU:
http://www.virginmobile.com.au/glossary.html


A number code that unlocks your SIM card in case the PIN is incorrectly entered three times. If the PUK is incorrectly entered ten times it permanently disables the SIM card, which will then have to be replaced. Contact us if you need to get your PUK.




I hope this helps!! :)
