Good day,

If you have problem with you SIM card and it keeps on asking yor PUK code once you insert your SIM to any mobile phone. You can get your PUK code by asking your service provider for your PUK code, all you have to do is contact then give your SIM number (reffering to sim card contact number) and ask for your PUK code.

cheers,
mark

I have a pantech ease and it says i need the puk or pin1 unlock code, any idea what that is or where i could find it?


Hi the PUK code is the security code for the sim card and not any code to do with the phone, all you need to do to get the PUK code is call your service provider.
your service provider wont charge for giving you the code as the code belongs to you, all you need to tell them is your phone number or if you dont know that then the number printed on the sim card, they will then provide you with the 10digit PUK code for free over the phone.
this will then allow you to access the sim card.

The only place you can get the PUK code from is your service provider as their is no where else that keeps these codes, if you still have the card the sim card was attatched to then it will be written on their but if you no longer have this then the only way your going to get the code is by calling your service provider, they wont charge you for this as the code belongs to you,

you do have another option open to you though, if you dont need that sim card then you can go out and get another sim card and when you get given a new sim card you will get given the unique PUK code it will be written on the card the sim card is attatched to.

let me know if you need further assistance ok.

plz rate this solution as i have a whole page of unrated posts, thanks

please dont pay anyone to give you the PUK code as it belongs to you, you can sometimes get the code from your service providers website if they have this feature on their site, you just enter your phone number and it gives you the PUK code, if this is not on their site then all you need to do is give your service provider a call from another phone and ask them for hte PUK code, this code will only work with the sim card thats asking for the code, if you enter the wrong code more than 5 or 10 times then this will destroy the sim card and you wont be able to use it anymore.

let me know if you have any problems ok

I need to know how to figure out what my puk code is.


PUK stands for Personal Unblocking Key. This is a uniqueeight digit code specific to your SIM card. This is required when the PINnumber to unlock your mobile phone is entered incorrectly 3 times. You are thengiven 10 attempts to enter your PUK code. If an incorrect PUK code is enteredafter the 10th attempt, you will block your SIM card permanently and willrequire a new SIM card from your mobile phone provider.
PUK codes can be obtained through the following ways - The PUK code is in your SIM card documentation Starter Pack.If you do not have this then -Please contact your phone service provider.
Your cell phone service provider can give you the PUK code once you give themyour account details and they have confirmed your identity.

Wots my puk code for my samsung c3050


Hi the PUK code is the security code for the sim card its not a code for the phone so the good news is your phone is working and is not locked.

The only way of getting the PUK code is to call your service provider and give them either your phone number or the number off the sim card they will then give you the PUK code for free over the phone, its just a security feature to stop people using your sim card should your phone get stolen

your service provider wont charge you a penny for giving you this code as it belongs to your sim card so they have to tell you. some service providers have a feature on their web site that lets you get your own PUK code via their site but you would have to check this.

the other option you have is if you dont need to use the sim card thats asking for the PUK code then you can just get a new sim card, the new sim card will come with its own PUK code and it will be written on a piece of card that the sim card was stuck to

so you have 2 options call your service provider or get another sim card.
the best solution would be to give your service provider a call as they wont charge for giving you the code.

let me know if you need further assistance ok

My nokia phone model N95-1 need a PUK code to acces on my phone. I really dont know how to find that PUK code.


Please call the costumer care of your sim card network operator (service provider). They will give you the number, note that if you enter random numbers several times, it'll damage the sim card and will not be usable anymore, So i suggest you not to do anything with it till you get the number from the Service Provider. No one can unlock it, it's saved on the database of the Network Operator. They will give you the number and will instruct you how to do it. Good luck. Thanks for using FixYa

My phone wont let me go on it and it says i have to enter a PUK code but i dont know what the PUK code is, what shall i do?


Hi what the puk code is is the security code for your sim car all you need to do is contact your service provider and give them your phone number they will then give you the 15 digit PUK code you then enter this in your phone and you will be up and running.
your service provider wont charge for this but remember thew code they give you will only work with the sim card that is asking for the code as every sim card made has its own unique PUK code so it wont work on any other sim and if tried it can lock the other sim card you are trying the code with.

let me know how you get on or if you need further assistance ok

My idea sim ask for puk code but i dont know..what do i do? please tell me


hi, what the PUK code is is a network lock code related to your sim card all you need to do is contact your service provider and ask them for your PUK code they will give you this code for free over the phone.
Your service provider is the only place you can get this code from as every single sim card made has its own unique PUK code so your service provider is the only person who holds these codes, they wont charger for giving you this and this code will only work with the sim card that is asking for the code.

Dont try guessing the code as its over 10 digits long and completely random, you only get 5 tries then the sim card is blocked and can no longer be used.

Have a Nokia 6030 phone. Need the PUK code, I'm


hi, if your phone is asking for the PUK code then what this means is that the sim card has gone into protection mode and you need to enter the 11 digit code to give you access to your sim card again.

Now if you have had the phone and sim card from new then the PUK code would have been written on the card the sim card was attatched to if how ever you dont have this then all you need to do is contact your service provider and give them your phone number.
This is the only way you can get the PUK code as each sim card made has its very own PUK code and the only people who have access to this code is your service provider.
They wont charge for telling you the code so just give them a call and you will get given the code just write it down for future reference, the code will only work with the sim card thats asking for the code.

If you get the code wrong more than 5 times then the sim card will be no good and you wont be able to get it unlocked.

Let me know how you get on or if you need further assistance ok
