Is there another way to unlock my Pantech P9060 phone besides the PUK code


I answered this for you already and the short answer is NO. Let me explain in a non technical way. The lock has been put on by the cellular provider at firmware level and only they have the key to the encryption lock.

They have done this because they own the phone on an undischarged contract. For instance, you or 'they (the person who had it before it was lost or stolen)' took a 2 year plan and there is a still a year to run. perhaps you are trying to use a different cellular provider on their phone, perhaps Pay As You Go.

Why did they put the lock on it?

See above, you are trying to use another company.

The phone you have is reported stolen and the cellular company are not going to use their phone. They want it back!

You have put a consumer lock code into it a stupidly forgot what the code is? Or you nice mates, baby brother have been playing with it and they have been trying to get into it. After 10 wrong tries, software automatically locks it with a PUK Code.

Here is the long explanation again, read it, it took me a while to write it as one of my TIPS. There is no other way. This has cut 'phone theft to order', and 'phone muggings' to virtually zero. If you have purchased a stolen phone, give it back and get your money back.

Tip & How-To about Cell Phones
Your phone is asking for a PUK code?

Is your phone asking for a PUK code. PUK = Personal Unlocking Key. Personal Unblocking Key, or PIN Unblocking Key.

This can only come from your cellphone carrier and usually the company that still owns the phone under the agreement. Sometimes it is because you have put another SIM card in it, and they own the phone and need you to use them as carrier to get the price of the phone back, or you are in default of payment, or on a Pay as You Go plan, it is over expired. I can also happen if you have entered the unlock code wrongly three times. This often happens when a phone is stolen or lost and has been found by or sold to someone else who then try and use the phone. Wikipedia A personal unblocking code (PUC), also known as a PIN unlock key (PUK), is used in 3GPP mobile phones to reset a personal identification number (PIN) that has been lost or forgotten.
Most mobile telephones offer the feature of PIN protection. After switching on the phone, if the PIN security function is active, the user is requested to enter a 4-8 digit PIN enabling the phone's non-emergency calling functions. If the wrong PIN is typed in more than three times, either the SIM card, the device, or both become locked. They can be returned to their original unlocked state by entering a PUC, provided by the service operator after verification. If the wrong PUC is entered ten times in a row, the device will become permanently blocked and unrecoverable, requiring a new SIM card. Cellular phone users are therefore advised by most providers to keep their PUC written down in a safe place separate from the device.
The PUC (PUK) is a SIM-specific code assigned and provided by the service provider.
Once you enter the PUK code, you must set a PIN. The PUK and PUK2 are used to unlock the PIN and PIN2 codes respectively if your SIM card is blocked
From Bell
The PIN unblocking key (PUK; sometimes called personal unlocking key) is a master security code for unblocking and resetting the personal identification number (PIN) for your SIM card. For added security, the PUK is unique to your SIM card. If your PIN code is active and you enter it incorrectly three times, your SIM card will be blocked. You won't be able to use your phone, except for emergency calls. You must enter your PUK into your phone to unblock the SIM card. If your SIM card becomes blocked, Contact us to get your PUK.
You may be able to do it from the website or your cellular provider. This is from Orange - T-Mobile in the UK.
Your phone can become blocked in a number of ways - one of them is if you enter your SIM card PIN number incorrectly three times in a row. To unblock your SIM card, you will need to use something called a PUK (Personal Unblocking Key).
Remember that unblocking is different to unlocking. Read more information on unlocking your device.

Tip

PIN and PUK


Hello,

I have seen a lot of posts here about unblocking a PIN and PUK code.
Hopefully this tip will help Fixya users who experience this problem, at one point in time.

First of all, the PIN and PUK codes are not phone codes, they are SIM card codes.
The PIN (Personal Identification Number) is a code that restricts access to your phone, through the SIM card.
If you insert a SIM card that has no PIN restriction, you will not be asked for the PIN code.
When you enter the wrong PIN more than five times, it will get blocked, and ask you for the PUK code.

The PUK (Personal Unblocking Code) is used to unblock a blocked PIN.
If your PIN is blocked, use your PUK to unblock it.

Tip:

The PIN and PUK being SIM card codes, no one else can provide them to you, not even your phone manufacturer, except your network service provider.
If you dont have your PIN and PUK, call your network service provider customer care and they will provide you with both the PIN and PUK codes, for free.

I hope this tip will help you in case your PIN gets blocked.

Thank you for using Fixya,
Kenneth.

Phone blocked need puk code


Hiii

PUK code is a security code unique to your sim card. It is used for unblocking the SIM card if its being blocked by some reason. Your sim card seems to be blocked and you need to provide the PUK code to use it again.
Usually the PUK code is written on the papers you got from your provider when buying the SIM card. If you can't find it, just call your SIM card provider or Service provider helpline to get it. There is no charge for retrieving PUK code.

All the Best.....

My w fone sim blocked its needs puk code my cell number is 03365


PUKs, or personal unblocking keys, are used to unblock a mobile phone which becomes blocked. Mobile phones may become blocked when a PIN (personal identification number) is entered incorrectly on three consecutive occasions. In some instances, the phone may become blocked, which requires a PUK to unblock it, and in other instances, the SIM (Subscriber Identity Module) card itself becomes blocked and again will require a PUK to unblock it. Mobile phones are also blocked when they are reported stolen and if there is an outstanding payment on the account. It is important to differentiate between unblocking phones (using a PUK) and unlocking mobile phones (using another type of code). NOTE: It is a criminal offence for anyone to attempt to unblock a mobile phone, other than the network provider who put the block on the phone. If your phone has become blocked by mistake, for example you have entered the PIN incorrectly on three consecutive occasions, then you need to contact the mobile phone network operator with your details. To explain a little more, specific to your mobile phone network, You need to go to your Service providers, web site & navigate your way to the specific PUK details for your mobile phone network operator. Usually you have to Register your phone to get a PUK code.

Unlock the puk code for aircel perpaid


PUK or pin unblocking key, usually comes up together with your sim card, be it on a paper, receipt or at the back of your sim card card. it is usually the unblocking key for your pin. normally, puk is for your sim card not to your phone, but, if the phone depends more on the sim, either if you remove the sim and open your phone, it will not open. usually, this is possible for phone who don't have an offline mode. if you lost your PUK, then, the possible way to acquire this, is to contact your network provider and ask for your puk code. if your phone has an offline mode, try inserting a sim that the pin is not activated and check.
