Question about Samsung SGH-C300 Cellular Phone
If you have entered the puk code wrong around 10 times you have disabled the sim card, you can cut the sim card into peaces and throw it out from the window since you will have to contact your phone service provider for another sim card or if you have prepaid buy another set.
before throwing the sim card away I suggest you contact the service provider to see if they can help you. if the card isnt blocked yet.. or if you can still enter a puk code you might be able to fix it by calling the provider and getting the correct code if not, its useless card.

SOURCE: Need to unblock card
Pin Unlock Code (PUK)
If you miss keyed (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 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.
This is not a security code, but it works like one! To help combat mobile phone thefts, the networks share a database of the IMEI (International Mobile Equipment Identity) of mobile phones that have been reported stolen. Once a phone is on this list, it will not be allowed to use any of the networks.
This can be a risk if you buy a second-hand phone, because if it has been stolen, or if an unscrupulous seller makes an insurance claim after selling, the phone you bought in good faith may be permanently disabled.
Be very careful to check the source of a second-hand phone!

Hi your only option is to call your phone service provider, no it doesn't come with the phone and the phone never has its own puk code becouse the puk code is about the sim card.
if you put in another sim card the phone will work just fine, its the simcard 3 times pin code wrong puk code enabled pin blocked, call service provider to get it and entery instructions.
Let me know if you need anything else.

The PUK enters when a wrong PIN code is entered three times.
The only ways to unlock PUK are:
Finding PUK code printed on original phone or SIM card documentation.
Calling the SIM card company and getting PUK free of charge.
Replacing the SIM card.
The PUK is linked to SIM card not to phone. To unlock you can look for SIM card phone company website, then contact them by phone.
Replacing the SIM card, you won't be asked for PUK anymore.
