PUK = Personal Unlocking Key. Supplied by your cell phone provider as the people who own the phone under an unexpired contract.
PIN = Person Identification Number. The number you use to keep your phone locked and private.
If the phone is stolen the cellphone carrier locks it with a PUK so it can't be used unless the person who has it contacts them. Also the phone is locked if a user tries 4 times unsuccessfully to open a phone using the wrong PIN Number. You can only open it with a PUK code.

How many of Us have Actually Seen this Code on the Cellphone?
This is not an ERROR. PUK stands for ' Personal Unblocking Key'. It is also known as PUC ( Personal Unblocking Code ). This Code could ONLY be offered by the Service Providers. You need to Call up the Service Provider ( More often from another Phone ) and ask for PUK. You need to Verify all the Personal Details before they would Provide PUK Code.
There is NO Charge for the same. For Most of the Service Provider's, if you Enter Wrong PUK Code more than 3 Times, either the Device, Sim or Both could be Damaged.
Why this usually Happen?
I could Provide you with the Most Common Reason. Whenever you tried to Use a Sim that belongs to a Different Carrier, more often you would Face this Problem.
Note - There is no way to get PUK code from any other Vendor, Site or anyone.
Make sure Once you Call them, you also need to Provide them with your Cellphone IMEI ( International Mobile Equipment Identity ). This could be retrieved by Pressing *#06# on your Handset.
if you forget your phone lock password so don't panic. first type wrong password more time (maybe cellphone allow wrong pass 12 time) so your cellphone goes sim card lock and ask about PUK number so call your service provider customer care and ask about your PUK than enter PUK in your cellphone and type new password. thats it
Hi, To get PUK code please contact your service provider.they will provide you the default PUK code. While you get the PUK code ,the service provider customer care officer will ask for your personal details to check whether the mobile belongs to you only.If they are satisfied with your answers they will provide with the PUK code Note: if you keep entering random numbers, the sim card will be locked and will be rejected. If you need further help, let me know.
sir you call to the releated simcard customer care to get the puk code number.you should give the sim card registration number to get the puk code number from customer care and then you enter the puk code number to unblock the cellphone...............
This problem is not with the Mobile....but with the SIM card.If the PUK code is entered 10 times wrongly the SIM card gets permanently blocked. Try to get the PUK from the Customer care of the concerned network company. Try the below link for more information and even you can calculate PUK yourself... http://www.gsmhacks.com/forums/nokia/18429-puk-code-calculator.html
the cellphone is not the sim has got blocked ... it will ask for the PUK code when you try inserting the wrong pin for 3 times ...
so to get the PUK code follow these steps: 1. call to your network provider s customer care from some of your friends number of the same network ... tell your number & ask them for the PUK code.. 2. they may ask you the details of sim like in whose name it is etc.. answer that ... 3. after that they will provide you the PUK code note it down 4. enter the noted PUK number to your cell ... 5. your sim will get unlocked ....
caution: if you try inserting the wrong PUK codes for more than 5 or 10 times it will completely block the sim after that you must contact the network provider s shoppe only to get it unlocked .. remember this ...
this solves your problem ...
