PUK Code

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.
For details to obtain the PUK code for the SIM card, please click on this link and follow my instructions.

you have entered the pin code wrong 3 times now you are required to enter a puk code to reset the pin code. 

The puk code is sim card spesific it comes with the sim card when you get it or you can get it by calling your phone service provider of the sim card to get the puk code. 

if you have entered the puk code wrong too many times you will make the sim card useless and you will have to contact your phone service provider for a new sim card, it will probably cost.

SOURCE: My child locked his track phone by accident and it

You'll need to get the SIM car replaced. To do so could cost up to $25, but if you contact your service provider (like AT&T or whatever) - they can usually get you one free.

The only thing that you need to do is call your service provider. A puk code is unique to your sim card. Your service provider is the only one that can give it to you. They will give it to you free of charge. I had to call my service provider today and get my puk code for my sim card. Call them and this will solve your problem.

My son seems to have locked his phone but doesn't

Try the default lock codes. The typical lock codes for a phone are 0000, 1234, and most commonly, the last 4 digits of your phone number. If all 3 don't work, try to take the phone to your service provider's store and they might be able to reset it for you.

I turned my phone on, and I usually have a pin code. But by mistake I **** typed a bunch of numbers and pressed okay getting my code wrong. After doing this a ton of times, I used up all of my tries and...


A PUK (PIN Unlock Key) code is required to unlock SIM card 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 service provider to unlock your SIM card. You only get ten chances to enter a PUK before the SIM card becomes permanently disabled.

You can also look the back of the SIM pack, the PUK code is written on it. Or call your service provider. When you enter this PUK code it will request for a new code enter code and your phone will come up.

Hold on a second, what unlock code you need? lg gt365 neon network unlock code or just puk code? If your phone accidentially locked by password you will need puk code and this code can be obtained from your network provider for free. But if you want to change your sim card then you will need lg unlock code, this code also can be obtained from your network provider but not free or you can purchase from third party sites for small prices.
