PUK Blocked? What does that mean?


The PUK & PIN codes are Security Codes that are on the SIM card. PIN( Personal Identification Number ) PUK ( Pin Unlock Key). when the PIN code in entred wrong the SIM automatically Blocks the PIN. to unlock the PIN you need to Enter the PUK. but if you enter the PUK wrong the Entire SIM is Locked.

The PIN Code & the PUK codes are Only Known by your Network Provider. you have to get in touch with them to get the codes. how ever if you have PUK blocked you will have to get a replacement SIM

My daughter has a contract lg cookie phone and it says puk blocked


I believe that puk blocked means that the sim or smartchip card is locked and the service provider needs to give you the code to unblock it. This is a seperate problem than a phone that is locked to a particular network provider. That is something which you can search online for places to purchase the unlock code.

My samsung mobile phone has beenpuk blocked.


if you see PUK blocked it only means that you unsuccessfully entered the wrong pass code many times it permanently locked your sim. you can still check it with your Service Provider but i think you need to have a new sim card.

Puk blocked


Hi and welcome to FixYa,

A PUK (Personal Unblocking Key) is the code required for enabling/unlocking a sim card. This disabling/lock is a result of erroneously entering the PIN (Personal Identification Number) multiple times. Depending on the SIM card issuer, erroneously entering the PUK code multiple times would result to a permanently blocked/disabled SIM card. The PUK code is an OTW (one time write) only and therefore the only way to open the card is with the PUK code.

In all instances, it has nothing to do with the phone itself but with the SIM card, hence, the LG Vu CU920 would still work with another SIM card.

Hope that this be of initial help/idea. Good luck and thank you for using FixYa.

Puk locked need code to unlock sch-U900T samsung


PUK means "personal unlocking key" .

The PUK code is asked if you enter a wrong pin 3 times.

You need to call your phone service company, they can retrieve the puk code from a database for free.

An alternative is going to a local phone shop and having the unlock done for a small fee.

The PIN and PUK are related to the SIM card, not to the phone.

If you replace the SIM card with a different one, then the phone should not ask for the PUK anymore.

Puk unlock


Try turn your phone on, it will ask for PIN, or PUK if the PIN is blocked.
If it doesn't ask for PIN, then your sim card is not blocked.
