What is PUK CODE ?


A PIN Unlock Code (PUC) or PIN Unlock Key (PUK) is used in GSM mobile phones and some smartcards to unblock a blocked card.
A PUK code is required if a GSM SIM card was locked after entering the wrong PIN code three times in a row. Entering a wrong PUK code ten times in a row disables the SIM card permanently. Both the PIN and the PUK codes are supplied by the operator, but only the PIN code can be changed by the user.

On the screen asking for pku code


Hello,

This is what you need to know about PUK;

When a PIN code is entered wrongly three times, the phone line will be blocked. Irrespective of the owner, it is assumed that you are not the owner of the phone line when you enter your pin wrongly.

The blocked line at this point can still be unblocked and this is where the PUK code comes in. Once you enter the PUK code, your PIN code will be reset. You can then create a ne PIN code.

To get your PUK code, if your phone is using a SIM Card, Check the SIM card Pack and you will see your PUK code there. But if you don't have a SIM card pack, you can get the PUK code from your service provider.

Call the customer care line of your service provider using another phone, request for your PUK code and it will be given to you. Note that your service provider will ask you some few questions about your line in order to be sure you are the real owner.

Note that your service provider alone is the only one that can give you your PUK code because it's only your service provider that has it.

Good luck....

My daughters phone says "pin blocked , enter PUK


The PUK code can be found in the packaging of the sim card when you first bought it.
Several wrong tries for a pin code can get the sim card blocked and only the PUK code can enable it for access. If you can't find the PUK code, you have to buy another sim card or if this is postpaid, you have to report it to your Telecom Operator.

Tip & How-To about Cell Phones
PUK
A PIN Unlock Key (PUK), also known as a Personal Unblocking Code (PUC) is used to reset a Personal Identification Number (PIN) that has been forgotten or lost.

Most mobile telephones offer the feature of PIN protection. After switching on the phone, if the PIN security function is active, the user is requested to enter a 4-8 digit PIN enabling the phone's non-emergency calling functions. If the wrong PIN is typed in more than three times, either the SIM card, the device, or both become locked. They can be returned to their original unlocked state by entering a PUK, provided by the service operator after verification. If the wrong PUK is entered ten times in a row, the device will become permanently blocked and unrecoverable, requiring a new SIM card. Cellular phone users are therefore advised by most providers to keep their PUK written down in a safe place separate from the device.

The PUK (PUC) is a SIM-specific code assigned by the service provider. It is near-impossible to guess and enter it; thus, if a user does not know his or her PUK and is prompted for it, it should be obtained from the service provider.

Once you enter the PUK code, you must set a PIN. The PUK and PUK2 are used to unlock the PIN and PIN2 codes respectively if your SIM card is blocked.


GOOD LUCK

It means that the usual PIN code used to unlock the phone has been entered incorrectly too many times. To get around this you must ask the network provider for a PUK code which unblocks the SIM and allows the user to set a new PIN code.

On most phones, the PIN only applies to the SIM, not the phone, so if you fit another SIM card you can continue to use the phone but will have a new phone number.

Nokia n95 puk code required


Pin code is a security code of your sim card, not the phone. Please look your subscription form or contact your service provider for the puk code.

When someone enters wrong pin code for a defined time, the pin and the sim is locked. you then have to use a longer puk code to unlock it. both pin and puk is provided by network operator.
