PUK- Personal Unblocking Key
Means the SIM card is blocked, usually due to the SIM lock code being entered incorrectly three times.
You need to contact the network operator to get a PUK to unblock the card, or replace with a new SIM.
You need to obtain your PUK code and enter it to unlock your phone.
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.

PUK refers to Personal Unblocking Key. This is a Code which
is offered only by Service Provider. There is NO charge. Call up the
service provider and ask for the same and they would be glad to offer
Note - If you enter 3 incorrect PUK codes, SIM would be permanently damaged.
Please contact your wireless carrier, tell them that your sim card is blocked or the phone says PUK blocked. They will give you some numbers to unblock it. This normally happens if PIN code has been entered 3 times incorrectly or another wireless carrier sim card was inserted into the phone when the phone is not an unlock phone.
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
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.
