SOURCE: forgot puk code

PUK means "personal unlocking key" .

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.

SOURCE: My phone is PUK blocked

Hi,


PIN CODE is SIM dependenet and not phone dependent

PUK code in PIN UNLOCKING CODE, which is required when you give PIN number wrongly for 3 times,
This code is OPERATOR specific and not phone specific and you have to call you operator and get PUK if PIN is blocked...

if you provide PUK code wrongly for 7 time, you sim may become useless, then you have to buy new SIM

NOTE: You should ask your service provider,get the PUK,


ENJOY! RATE THIS SOLUTION

SOURCE: need puk code for locked LG KE850prada phone

Hi,

If you need the PUK ( Personal Unblocking Key ) for your phone, you will have to contact your mobile phone service provider.

PUK code is related to the SIM card you are using. So, kindly call the Customer support of your mobile service provider and they will provide you with the PUK code.

Also, entering a wrong PUK code ten times in a row disables the SIM card permanently. So, please be careful while entering the PUK code.

Hope this solves your problem. Thanks for using FixYa.

I don't no my puk code my phone is locked plz help me


Step 1 Contact your cellular carrier. Some phones allow you to call the carrier even if the PUK is locked. You can also dial the carrier's toll-free number from another phone.

Step 2Select the option to speak with customer care. The customer care agent will ask you to verify your account with the account password.

Step 3 Advise the customer care agent you need a PUK code. The agent will generate a new PUK code and give it to you over the phone.

Step 4
Enter the PUK code into the phone to unlock it.
Tip
  • Some carriers allow you to generate a PUK through your account on their website, or by talking with online support chat.

Warning When the phone switches from asking for a PIN to asking for a PUK, stop entering codes. If you enter the PUK code wrong too many times, the PUK will lock permanently and you will need to buy a new SIM card

Code to unblock puk codes


to my knowledge, this cannot happen without someone actually locking the sim, so you may want to contact your employer, but just in case your employer doesn't know whats happening,
here are instructions to find your puk code for att, if you have a different carrier, contact their customer support for further instruction

Obtain a PUK Code

Instructions: When the error message "ENTER PUK CODE" is shown on the screen of the device:
  1. Log into myAT&T.
  2. Select Wireless from the myAT&T tab at the top of the page.
  3. Select Phone/Device.
  4. Click Unblock SIM Card.
  5. A new page will open, containing the PUK code for your phone. Enter the code on your phone's screen to unblock the SIM and create a new PIN.
Unblock SIM Card
  1. Enter the eight-digit PUK code on the phone, then press OK/Yes.
    Note: Some Motorola phone users need to enter **05* if "enter PUK" is not already displayed. After entering **05*, enter the eight-digit PUK code and press OK.
  2. Select a new PIN code, then press OK/Yes.
  3. Re-enter the PIN code, then press OK/Yes.
  4. If the codes were entered successfully, the phone is ready for use.
If the incorrect PUK code is entered 10 times in a row, the SIM card becomes permanently locked and a new SIM card must be purchased. If the device is requesting PUK2, call Customer Care at 800-331-0500.

... good luck

    Tocco lite phone freeze deactivate fail


    here is some info on PUK codes:

    try taking battery and SIM out waiting 15 seconds and powering cell back on.

    In your case I believe your SIM is now FROZEN or locked. You mostlikely will need to purchase a new SIM card.

    A PUK code (Pin Unlock Key) is required when you enter an incorrect PIN 3 times. After entering the wrong PIN 3 times, the card will be locked and you will need to get a PUK code from your service provider to unlock it.

    If the wrong PUK code is entered ten times in a row, the SIM card becomes invalid and you will need to purchase a new SIM Card. The phone will display "PUK blocked call operator".

    Hi i wwas trying to put a security code to my nokia 2610 but now is block and is asking me for a puk code could you please helpe with that?


    found this answer on the european nokia website
    http://discussions.europe.nokia.com/discussions/board/message?board.id=phones&thread.id=36994

    You enter the PUK code, when the SIM has been locked by too many attempts at entering the PIN code for the SIM.

    When the PUK code is needed, the phone will specifically ask you to enter it. If you want to trigger the PUK code request, enter the PIN code for the SIM card incorrectly a few times. There is no key press codes to trigger the PUK code prompt.

    Each PUK code is specific to each SIM card, and has nothing to do with the phone itself.

    And the PUK code is also not related to the phone security/lock code (the default for the security/lock code on the phone is 12345 on Nokia phones).
