PUK = Personal Unlocking Key. Supplied by your cell phone provider as the people who own the phone under an unexpired contract.
PIN = Person Identification Number. The number you use to keep your phone locked and private.
If the phone is stolen the cellphone carrier locks it with a PUK so it can't be used unless the person who has it contacts them. Also the phone is locked if a user tries 4 times unsuccessfully to open a phone using the wrong PIN Number. You can only open it with a PUK code.
Click on my name, click on TIPS, click More, click Cellphones, read my article on PUK codes.
Please call the customer care of your network operator, they will tell you the unlock code for free. We can't unlock it anyhow. Please note, that you don't enter any random numbers, it'll damage your sim card permanently. Good luck.
Thank you for using FixYa.
you would have to contact your service provider to get the puk code to unlock the pin. code: **05*PUK*new pin*re-type new pin#.
But you would have to verify puk code from your service provider first b4 you try the process on your phone
if you put pin wrong 3 times the puk comes, if you put puk wrong too many times it makes the sim card useless.
to get the correct puk code call your phone service provider they are the only ones who have it.
