PUK stands for Personal Unblocking Key. This is a unique eight-digit code specific to your SIM card. This is required when the PIN number to unlock your mobile phone is entered incorrectly 3 times. You are then given 10 attempts to enter your PUK code. If an incorrect PUK code is entered after the 10th attempt, you will block your SIM card permanently and will require 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 them your account details and they have confirmed your identity.

Please call Globe costumer hotline at 730-1000 for landline or 211 for mobile (Toll Free) or you can visit your nearest Globe wireless center for a request of PUK code,just give your phone number and they will gonna work for the code you ask.
the following codes are provided by the network operator: -pin code-puk code
both of these codes are provided when you purchase a sim card and are usually written on the sim holder or on the provided booklet. if u have the puk code, then u can enter a wrong pin multiple time and then the sim card will ask you for the puk code which then u can use to unlock the sim. if u lost both the sim and puk, then the only way is to contact the network operator to give you a new sim card. hope this helps
Hi as you have lost the card the sim card was attatched to then the only place you can now get the code from is your service provider, the PUK code is the securit code for the sim card and the code is random so its not like the security code where you can use a number generator to get the code the PUK code is totally random and is between 8 and 11 digits long.
so you have 2 options open to you if you need to use the sim card thats asking for the PUK code then all you need to do is call your service provider and give them your phone number and they may ask your name and address but once this is done they will be able to give you the PUK code over the phone for free.
now the other option you have is if you dont need to use the sim card what you can do is get another sim card and you will either get a new puk code or the sim card wont ask for the PUK code.
let me know how you get on or if you need further assistance.
please could you rate this post as i have a whole page of unrated posts, thanks.
You can locate your PUK usually it is included in your sim card kit when you purchase it. if you lost it already, this is the last thing we can do. Contact your operator customer care or visit them and ask for your PUK code and they are very glad to help you. they will ask you several questions pertaining to your account to verify if you are the real owner. You can also get it on-line on most operator if they have this service at their website.
Once you receive your PUK code, you will need to enter it into your phone to set a new PIN code.
Don't forget to rate me OK! thanks...
Note: If you enter the wrong PUK code 10 times in a row, your SIM card will be invalidated, and you will need to purchase a new SIM card. The phone will display the following error: "PUK blocked call operator."
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 SIM card Customer Care.
Please call the Customer Care of your Network Operator (sim card provider), they will tell your the code. There's no other way or no means to get the code except from the Service Operator. They might ask your few questions related to the Sim Card, like your name or your address, tell them promptly and they will give you the puk code for your sim card. It's also important to note down the Sim Card Number (number written on the sim card) if in case they ask you the sim number. You will also be assisted on how to disable the security settings.
Note: if you keep entering random/unknown numbers/codes, the sim card will be locked and will be rejected. It'll not be usable anymore. Good luck.
