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.

My pin code has blocked which asks for a puk code my mobile is nokia 5233


PUK code will be always with the service providers. Please contact them for unlocking your mobile.
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.

:)

Good Luck

DEFAULT PUK CODE AND PIN CODE FOR N73 ME


No the Default PUK and PIN codes are not set by you, these codes are Service Provider Dependent (SIM)
All you have to so is to call your Service Providers Customer Support (Like of T-Mobile, AT&T...).
And ask them about the PUK and PIN code, they will first Authenticate few things about the Ownership of the SIM card, and will give you the codes, in return.
I Guess, the picture is clear in front of you, Now.
