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.

The PIN is most likely on the SIM card. The PUK error indicates that the SIM card is now disabled. This prevents thieves from obtaining your phone information without the correct code. If you enter it wrong too many times, this will fry the card and the memory on it. You will need to have the SIM card replaced by the provider. This should also resolve your code error. Best of Luck.

PUK is Personal Unblocking Code. You can't get it here. Every sim has a different PUK code for it. Your mobile operator may help you in this problem. Contact them.

Hi everyone

Every PUK code is unique so nobody can tell you your PUK number, but i will tell you what you can do!
1) If you still have your packet that your Sim Card came in, you should find your PUK number in there, if you don't have the packet, please read bellow.

2) You must get a phone that is on the same network as your phone and call the networks Customer Care and ask them for your PUK number, they will ask you for your phone number, then they will tell you your PUK number. Once you have done this, you will be able to reset your Pin number so you will be able to go into your phone again.

Please also remember to give this solution a FixYa! rating if it helps you.

My phone will only allow me to use the emergency call number, It say PUK blocked? Please assist.


A PUK blocked message pops up after one enters the wrong PUK code 7 or 10 times in a row, depending on the service provider. A PUK code is required only after one blocks the SIM PIN code.

Many times, it may so happen that you block your PIN code. You will need to call the customer care of the service provider of your cell phone for the PUK code or refer the SIM certificates for the PUK code. If you enter the wrong PUK code 7 to 10 times in succession, it will lead to PUK blocked. After entering the wrong PUK code 10 times in a row, the SIM card becomes permanently invalid or locked. The only solution is to purchase a new SIM card.

PUK blocked requires you to get a new SIM card. It does not matter whether you use a Nokia Cell Phone, LG Cellphone, Motorola Cell Phone, Samsung or Sony Ericsson handset. The handset is not the one that's deactivated, but its the SIM card that gets blocked. So, contact your network store for further help and getting yourself a new SIM card (new phone number). I hope this article on PUK blocked on cell phone has helped you find the solution to your phone problems.

Tip

About PUK code


A PUK code (Pin Unlock Key) is required when you enter an incorrect PIN (Personal Identification Number) 3 times. After entering the wrong PIN 3 times, the card will be locked and you will need to get a PUK code from your service provider to unlock it.

Once your PUK has been send to you, you should enter it into your phone to set a new PIN code, that will be four zeros "0000"

Note: If the wrong PUK code is entered ten times, the SIM card becomes invalid and you will need to get a new SIM Card. The phone will display "PUK blocked call operator". that will cost you money.

So please be carefull before entering PIN and check twice.

Best regards

I tried making a pin code for my lg GU29of model and it asked me what the default one is i typed what it said and it kept saying invalid pin after saying invalid a few times it switched me to puk code and...


Your PUK is listed on your account. You can call your customer service and they should be glad to provide that for you.

AT&T allows you to check that yourself if you log into your account online.

It's a rather long number so make sure you can see it clearly, or write it down before you sit down to type it in. NOTE: You only have 10 attempts to enter the PUK before it will lock your SIM permanently and you'll need to purchase another SIM to replace it.

Before trying the PUK (which is a PIN Unblocking Key), power your phone off and then back on. Then enter the PUK. Once you enter the correct code it'll ask you to enter a NEW PIN. Remember that one as that will be your new PIN.

If you get it wrong enough times it'll go to the PUK again.

The only way to get the PUK code is to call the service provider(not the phone maker) and give them the number that is on the sim card,They will give you the code needed to unlock it.So just have the sim card in hand to read off the number when they ask.

You need to input the PUK code first before it will allow yuo to do anything. usually PUK is printed on the SIM's packaging.. Kindly check the plastic card where the SIM was attached when hyou purchase it. It says PUK 1 and PUK 2.. Scratch the gray part and that would be your PUK code
