Hi
PUK code is called as PERSONNAL UNBLOCKING KEY.
Your phone will ask for PUK code when you entered the PIN code wrongly several times depending upon the mobile make. The mobile asks for PUK code so that unauthorized persons do not use your mobile for wrong cause.
To get PUK code please contact your service provider through phone or go directly to their office. They will provide you the PUK code for your mobile. The PUK code for mobile phone.so that you can open your phone. When you planning to call your service provider you cannot use your mobile as it is fully locked. Please use some other mobile with same network to call your service provider.
While you get the PUK code ,the service provider customer care officer will ask for your personal details to check whether the mobile belongs to you only. If they are satisfied with your answers they will provide with the PUK code
DONOT enter the PUK code several times wrongly,It will block your sim card permanently.
This PUK code is FREE. You no need to pay any sum to get the PUK code
Thank You.

SOURCE: phone says PUK disabled,card blocked

Hi and welcome to FixYa,

Always, your described problem is not a phone problem but a SIM card issue. The PUK block indicates that the PIN was entered wrong several times. The phone then locked the SIM card to prevent unauthorized use. This is a security feature and could not be overridden. The only way to make use of the Samsung SHG-C170 is to replace the SIM card.

Good luck and thank you for using FixYa.

SOURCE: i have 3 sim card and pt i inthe telstra lg tu550

I assume that your Telstra LG TU550 IS UNLOCKED AND NOT NETWORK RESTRICTED. Your SIM card could be locked due to wrongly enteriing your pass key wrong at least 3 times: DO NOT ATTEMPT TO enter the wrong pass key again as after 10 total attempts, the SIM WILL SELF DESTRUCT and will need to be physically replaced at a cost. Solution: Contact your sevice provider for the SIM and get them to give you the Phone Unlock Key (PUK) associated with your SIM (you will need to prove you are the registred owner of that SIM card and Mobile number). Alternatively, if you have registred the SIM online, the PUK code is either already available online or can be requested online. Hope it helps and let me know how you go.

Puk code for htc


Hi,

PUK code is a SIM specific code assigned by your service provider so call Customer care and state the problem then they will ask for some codes written on you SIM card. Few people use PIN locking system to lock their phone to avoid un-authorised access. Though this is a good option, it gives off sometime. Three wrong entry of PIN code will result in SIM blocking. Once SIM gets blocked, phone starts asking PUK code to enter. If you again enter wrong code for three times, SIM gets completely blocked. You have to walk into your service provider outlet to get a replacement SIM card.
I think it may help you.

Hi my phone says sim blocked how can i un block it????


PUK stands for Personal Unblocking Key. This is a uniqueeight-digit code specific to your SIM card. This is required when the PINnumber to unlock your mobile phone is entered incorrectly 3 times. You are thengiven 10 attempts to enter your PUK code. If an incorrect PUK code is enteredafter the 10th attempt, you will block your SIM card permanently and willrequire 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 themyour account details and they have confirmed your identity.

Sim blocked


Hello,

A sim block usually indicates that your wireless provider has put a block on your account. There are also certain applications associated with wireless phones in which a user can set up their phone and lock it remotely, or block many of the features accessible on it.

I would start with your wireless network carrier. Ask them why the SIM card is blocked.

My sim has blocked and i dont have the code to un block it lol


Once your sim card is blocked, u cannot unlock it. Now U have to go to your service provider and ask for a new sim card..( u will be given a new card with your existing number).

As Omkar rightly mentioned that once you enter PUK code wrongly for more than 3 times, the sim card automatically gets blocked.
Now the sim card in your cell phone is nothing but a useless one. You will get a new one from the network provider.
Actually the same thing had happened to one of my friends and he got it done in Rs.100/- only.
So don't worry...just go to the service provider now and get a replacement.

I hope I could help you!

Sim card and unlock feature


SIM cards can only be unblocked by the Service Provider (cingular, t-mobile, etc). They have a specific code based on the SIM card number. If you have entered the incorrect code more that 5 times, you will invariably incapacitate the SIM card. Contact your providers support department, or go to the store and they should be able to take care of it for you. Best of Luck.
