Puk number for at&t

I went to use my at*t card with my sidekick 3 and went to unlock it and it ended up locking up and asked for a puk number.

Does anyone know what the puk number is? I contacted at&t whom told me they do not like to give it out

The PUK code is (in my case) a an 8 digit number that I must enter to make the phone operable after someone (me) trys to enter my password and fails too many times.
I ran into this a while back before Singular became AT&T. I was locked out and I called Cingular and told the tech my phone was asking for a PUK code. I had to prove to him who I was somehow, I don't remember now how I did that. Maybe with my latest bill or something. Anyway he finally told me the numbers to enter. I wrote the numbers down first and then entered them. I've had to use them a couple of times since to get back in after I've locked myself out. It stays constant once you get the code. I have checked my phone under the battery and under the memory chip and these numbers are nowhere to be found on the phone. I SUGGEST YOU PUT A RECORDER ON YOUR PHONE OR HAVE SOMEONE LISTEN IN AND WRITE DOWN THE CODE WHEN YOU CALL AT&T. IT MAKE ME MAD THAT I OWNED A PHONE BUT AT&T KNEW A SECRET CODE TO MAKE IT OPERABLE. This is however a good feature though. I have my phone password protected so if I lose it and someone finds it they can only use it until they turn off the power one time and then they will get locked out and it will ask for the PUK code. Good luck, call AT&T and remember being nice will get you somewhere more then likely.

I was try to put code for my phone but sim card stop work massage on screen pin blocked inter puk no i donot know what is puk code


Pincode stands for PERSONEL IDENTIFICATION NUMBER. It is the fourdigit number which is used to lock the phone. The phone will ask for the code when you switch on it.With out entering the correct pin code you can't access your phone.If you enter the pin code wrongly for a specified(normally 3)number of ties your sim will get locked.You can't use that sim in other phones also without unlocking it.PUK code (PERSONAL UNLOCK KEY)is used tounlock the sim card if it is blocked.PUK code is provided by the network operators.If the PUK code is entered 10 times wrongly the sim card gets permenantly blocked.

just call ur network provider customer care and ask for the puk code.

My phone is lock and is asking for the puk number


Hello,

PUK stands for PIN UNLOCK KEY. You get this error when you wrongly entered SIM card pin for 3 attempts.

The PUK is not available anywhere online as this is unique to your sim card. The only one who can provide this to you is the network provider. Just call up their customer service line and then ask how you can obtain the PUK.

Puk # needed to unlock phone.


PUK means "personal unlocking key" .

The PUK code is asked if you enter a wrong pin 3 times.

You need to call the phone company that released the SIM card, they can retrieve the PUK code from a database for free.

In your case you need to contact your SIM card provider technical support to unlock the SIM.

The SIM card provider is the brand on the SIM card. For example if you have a Vodafone card, you will need to call Vodafone to get the PUK.

The PIN and PUK are related to the SIM card, not to the phone.

If you replace the SIM card with a different one, then the phone will not ask for the PUK anymore.
