If your phone is blocked. Take it to your nearest network provider outlet, to get it unblocked.

If your sim card is blocked. Go to your network providers website, where you can obtain the puk code that will unblock the sim card.

I turn on my cell and it asks me for my puk. I dont know what it is or how to find out how to get this information.


A PUK (PIN Unlock Key) code is required to unlock SIM cards that have become locked following three successive incorrect PIN entries. If your SIM card becomes locked, you will need to get a PUK code from your Cellular provider to unlock your SIM card
All you have to do is call your Cellular Provide and ask them for the PUK code, and they will.

My phone is locked and is asking for PUK code which i don't know. How do i fix this problem?


You need to contact the mobile provider and tell them your SIM is locked, and it is asking for the PUK CODE.

(I work for a mobile provider and it is a very common call.)

Sim Unlock Codes


The puk code is a code associated to SIM card , not to the phone.

You have to choices, call the phone company or replace the SIM card inside.

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

You need to call the phone company that released the SIM card, they can retrieve the PUK code from a database for free.

In your case you need to contact your SIM card provider technical support to unlock the SIM.


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 will not ask for the PUK anymore. 

 
Let me know if you need anything else.
Thanks,

Security code Nokia 3110 classic


SIM pin code:
This is a pin code that locks the sim card until you enter the correct code. This protects your account, even
if your sim is put into another handset. To reset it, you need the PUK code:
Pin Unlock Code (PUK)
If you miss key (or forget) your SIM pin code, and enter the wrong one 3-5 times in a row, the SIM will lock up, and you’ll need to enter the PUK unlock code to release it. You should ask your Network Service Provider for this code when you need it. Don’t try to guess it, because after a few wrong guesses, the SIM card will be permanently disabled.
Phone Security Code:
This locks the handset, as opposed to the sim card. You can also set some handsets to only accept a “new” sim if the phone security code is entered. To reset it, you need the Master code code:
Master Reset Code
Sometimes known as the Master Code, this allows you to unlock a handset if you have entered the Security Code wrongly too many times.
Which is the one that you want?
The default security code for Nokia is 12345

I need the IMEI (International Mobile Equipment Identity) number. Type this code in your phone to get it: *#06# you can also find it beneath the battery.
I also need to know the make and model of phone, the network that the phone is locked on, and the country the network is from. Then I will give you the codes. If this is what you want.

Phone lock code for w880i


Is your phone SIM locked or just power on locked? Be more descriptive.
If it says wrong sim / sim error etc then you need provider unlock code - if it is just regular code - it may be on your sim card
