Iv put my wrong pin code in my 3sim an need the puk to unblock it can u help me


the following codes are provided by the network operator:

-pin code
-puk code

both of these codes are provided when you purchase a sim card and are usually written on the sim holder or on the provided booklet.
if u have the puk code, then u can enter a wrong pin multiple time and then the sim card will ask you for the puk code which then u can use to unlock the sim.
if u lost both the sim and puk, then the only way is to contact the network operator to give you a new sim card.

Don't try to enter a PUK code without knowing the right one.
hope this helps

It says type puk code whenever i put my sim card in and it always turns out wrong


Hi,

If you need the PUK ( Personal Unblocking Key ) for your phone, you will have to contact your mobile phone service provider.

PUK code is related to the SIM card you are using. So, kindly call the Customer support of your mobile service provider and they will provide you with the PUK code.

Also, entering a wrong PUK code ten times in a row disables the SIM card permanently. So, please be careful while entering the PUK code.

Hope this solves your problem. Thanks for using FixYa.

Pin locked


PUK code, (personal unlocking key).

This is SIM card related / specific. If you take the SIM card out of the phone, the phone will work with another sim card.


The puk comes up when the pin code has been entered wrong 3 times. To get the puk code for your sim card, you have to call the service provider of that sim card. They are the only ones who can provide you with the right puk code for that sim card.


The puk code may also have came with the documentation of the sim card, if its a prepaid card the Puk code comes on the documents or on the box of the product.


if your unable to obtain the puk code, get a new SIM card.


Also entering the PUK code wrong too many times will eventually ruin the sim card forcing you to buy or contact your service provider for a new sim card.


There are no puk code calculators or anything that we can do about it, you can buy premium assistance and you will get this same response. There is no other solution.


You have to contact the phone service provider of that sim card or replace the SIM card.

I need a puk code for an orange phone? without having to go to the problem of phoning up orange that takes ages!! the phone is an LG ISO 800.


The PUK code comes with the SIM card, the code is printed on the plastic card that the SIM card was attached to. If you don't have it only your network service provider can give it to you.
SIM pin code:
This is a pin code that locks the sim card until you enter the correct code. This protects your account, even
if your sim is put into another handset. To reset it, you need the PUK code:
Pin Unlock Code (PUK)
If you miss key (or forget) your SIM pin code, and enter the wrong one 3-5 times in a row, the SIM will lock up, and you’ll need to enter the PUK unlock code to release it. You should ask your Network Service Provider for this code when you need it. Don’t try to guess it, because after a few wrong guesses, the SIM card will be permanently disabled.
