Entering PUK code on RIM Blackberry Pearl 8100

I have the PUK code from my service provider in the US (AT&T). Where am I supposed to enter the PUK code? And am I supposed to have the AT&T SIM card in the phone when I enter the code or the new SIM card (Indian SIM card)?

    I need to unlock my phone so that I can use an Indian SIM card with this phone. I was informed that I need to unlock my phone so that I can use SIM cards other than that provided by AT&T. I got the PUK code from the my account on the AT&T site.... I think that maybe I have confused the PUK code with the phone unlock code. Thanks for the response! I may need to contact AT&T to get my phone unlocked....

The PUK code, (Personal unblocking Code) is used when you enter in a PIN wrong too many times. Not sure why you would need a PUK for inserting a indian SIM card. regardless the PUK code should be entered in when the AT&T SIM is inserted in the phone and asking you for the PUK. Also PUK's can change, you may need to call and get a more current one

    Oh, OK that is different. When I worked for AT&T a few years back they would NOT unlock phones UNLESS you had paid full price for your phone or you were out of your 2 year contract, But, that may have changed, good luck!

If you have forgotten the PUK then the only way to get another is via your airtime provider. If you have forgotten your BlackBerry password, then nobody, not even RIM (the manufacturer) can help you.

Puk code

The puk code is sim card spesific it comes with the sim card when you get it or you can get it by calling your phone service provider of the sim card to get the puk code.
if you have entered the puk code wrong too many times you will make the sim card useless and you will have to contact your phone service provider for a new sim card, it will probably cost.
