IT IS SAYING MY PIN IS BLOCKED AND NOW IT'S ASKING FOR A PUK CODE.


Hi

PIN stands for Personal Identification Number. When you switch off your mobile and switch on again it will ask your PIN No. If you enter the PIN No three times wrong then your mobile will ask for the PUK
The PIN and PUK are provided on your SIM package, and can be changed many times. The basic purpose of these codes is to provide a security.These codes are normally used to prevent your SIM card from unauthorized use.

code from the package that has come with your SIM card Get these codes from SIM package and unlock your mobile phoe.But if you have changed your PIN and now have forgotten it then there is also a way to resolve it. When you give an incorrect PIN three times to your mobile phone it will block your SIM card, then in this case you have to provide a PUK given to you by network provider. And you can get your PUK any time by calling at the help line number of your network service centre

Puk code


How to find PUK code number of SIM Card (mobile phone). Many people use PIN number for their phone to lock some of the stuff or features.But if you enter PIN number 3 times wrong then your SIM card is blocked and will ask PUK If you enter PUK code number 10 times wrongly then your SIM card will be rejected and you have to buy a new duplicate SIM for your mobile phone. Here are the steps to get PUK number for different networks -

Airtel:

create a new message from any Airtel number (of your friends or relatives), type PUK PhoneNumber and then send it to 121 (toll free number)

For all other networks:

Call to your customer care number from other SIM card of same network and tell your details to them. They will first verify that you are the owner of that SIM, so they may ask name as registered on form, last call number, billing address, email ID, numbers you recently called, numbers you recently messaged or any other personal details. So keep all these ready when you call, then they will provide a PUK number, enter it and your mobile will be unblocked

Good luck.

I need to enter an orange puk code for an orange phone i had 3 years ago. as my current phone is being repaired, I cannot remeber my Orange mobile number, how do i get a puk code?


Hi,

PUK code and PIN Code:

Please dont try more than 3 times.If you try more than 3 times the Sim will get locked.And it will ask for PIN code.Both these PUK and PIN code can be given only by the network service provider. Please call the network service provider of your mobile.And ask him to provide the PUK code or PIN code.He will ask you some basic details like name,date of birth for his verification.And he will provide you the PUK and PIN code.This is done for free of cost.

Please do rate the solution if the issue is resolved or post a comment for further assistance.


Thank you for using fixya have a nice day:-)

Samsung SGH-E250. when switching phone on the following message appears " PIN BLOCKED ENTER PUK number". it is my 12 year old granddaughters mobile and we have no idea what a PUK number is! Can You help...


Ring your network provider, they will ask for mobile num, imei number and they will give you your puk code. Then just type it in and all is well. If you cant be bothered with that just stick a new sim card in ( same network if phone is net locked)

I forget my security code,what i can do?


if it's a Sim pin that you have forgotton, you will need to bglock ur pin comoletely.
It might sound stupid but if you get a message saying PUK code needed. Your saved.
You will need to have your mobile phone number with you.
Then you need to go to the network's website and search "Unlock PUk"
it will then ask you for your phone number and if you tap it in, it should come up with a PUK code.
Use this and type it into your phone.
and it should work. :)

PS if your PIN lock has been forgotten, then it will work. However, if your Phone lock has been forgotten, then it won't work.

Nokia mobile phone PUK code


Hi everyone

Every PUK code is unique so nobody can tell you your PUK number, but i will tell you what you can do!
1) If you still have your packet that your Sim Card came in, you should find your PUK number in there, if you don't have the packet, please read bellow.

2) You must get a phone that is on the same network as your phone and call the networks Customer Care and ask them for your PUK number, they will ask you for your phone number, then they will tell you your PUK number. Once you have done this, you will be able to reset your Pin number so you will be able to go into your phone again.

Please also remember to give me a good rating on my profile.

Kind regards
