Re: puk code on nokia rm162x phone
The puk code is provided by the service provider.Please call the toll free customer service and any agent might help you out with this problem.Its nothing to worry about.Also they might ask you some details regarding the phone call log such as last outgoing call or etc.Pin code is related only to the service provider and not the phone.If you are using AT&T sim, contact AT&T customer care now.Repeating again, its nothing to worry about.I say this because I have seen people disposing their sim just because of this problem,Please do post your comments.All the best.

If you've forgotten your PIN code, you will need a PUK code to reset it and unlock your phone.
According to the following site... "
How do I find the PUK number?
The PUC code or PUK key is found on the SIM certificate, which you get when you first connect to a wireless network. Entering the PUK number will bring back the original unlocked status of your cellular phone. The PUK can also be obtained from the network service operator (ie. AT&T, Vodafone, Rogers, Movistar, T-Mobile, etc.) after following the appropriate security measures. This number is unique to the SIM card issued by your provider and has a reasonable level of security against random fraud." http://unlockworldwide.com/2011/10/what-is-puk/

What you have to do is just call the customer care from another mobile and explain them the problem. Ask them for the PUK code also. Some service providers will give it easily and some will ask you to visit the nearest store. After verifying your identity they will easily help you.
your PUK-code and PIN-code were delivered together with your sim-card. when the sim-card asks for a PUK, it is blocked until the PUK-code is entered. if you cannot find the PUK-code anymore, it is advisable to go to your service provider (cell phone dealer) and ask for a new sim-card with the same number. hopefully you had your contacts saved to your phone and not to the sim-card, because it's very unlikely that any data on a blocked SIM can be retrieved.
