Puk code is used to remove the forgotten pin code, you have entered the pin code wrong 3 times and you are now required to enter a puk code. 
I've explained it here http://www.bukisa.com/articles/19406_puk-code

My 4 digit lock code was changed on me by my step daughter not my pin number my lock code it was 1989 now cant use phone


PUK Code
PUK stands for Personal Unblocking Key. This is a unique eight-digit code specific to your SIM card. This is required when the PIN number to unlock your mobile phone is entered incorrectly 3 times. You are then given 10 attempts to enter your PUK code. If an incorrect PUK code is entered after the 10th attempt, you will block your SIM card permanently and will require a new SIM card from your mobile phone provider.
PUK codes can be obtained through the following ways - The PUK code is in your SIM card documentation Starter Pack. If you do not have this then - Please contact your phone service provider.
Your cell phone service provider can give you the PUK code once you give them your account details and they have confirmed your identity. For details to obtain the PUK code for the SIM card, please click on this link and follow my instructions.

You could try entering the wrong PIN number until it asks you for a PUK code which you can get from your carrier.

My daughter has put a code in her phone and locked her self out


Hi Christine,

Do not worry about anything. You can easily obtain the PUK code without any charge, from your service provider by calling on Customer care number.
PUK is PIN Unlocking Code. When you enter a wrong PIN for 3 times the SIM gets locked and asks for a PUK code. Once you get the PUK code from your service provider you can create a new PIN for the SIM card.

Please note that if you Enter a Wrong PUK 10 times your SIM card will be corrupt and you will not be able to use it. So please do not try to guess the PUK.
PUK code cannot be generated by any software. Only your service provide can give you the PUK code for your SIM.

We appreciate your comments and ratings. If you find this solution helpful, please do not forget to rate it.

Thank you for choosing Fixya.
