I need puk cod of nokia 5800


Hello,

If your phone is requesting a PUK code, it is the sim card that is locked and requires the PUK code to unlock it. If you insert another sim in the phone, it will work perfectly fine.

The PUK code means personal unblocking key. It is mostly found on the sim pack, on the sim pack you will see a couple of numbers on the card, there you will see a 8 digit code, that is the puk code.

You can also contact the help center of the sim card you are using for the puk code, they will give it to you.

Take note: puk code request is not for the phone but the sim inserted into the phone.

Hope this helped.

Cant unlock phone asking for puk code not sure where to find it


You can only get a PUK code from the SIM provider, so you'll have to contact them directly.

Alternatively just insert a new compatible SIM card; you'll have a new phone number and won't be able to access prepaid credit or other data stored on the locked SIM, but at least you will be able to use your phone.

How do you unlcok the P.U.K number?


The PUK CODE is not a code for mobile it is a code for your sim. you need to contact your sim's customer care and ask them for your PUK CODE then after getting the code insert it where the mobile is wanted to. then after inserting the code press ok then the mobile says to set a new PIN CODE set it to whatever you wanted to. then your mobile will works fine. don't forget to rate my solution.

Puk number is missing. this my number.08066967389


You need to call MTN to unlock the code, that is the only way.

The only alternative way to get rid of the PUK code is using a different SIM card, but you will lose contacts and you will have to use a different phone number.
