SOURCE: PUK Code after entering pin incorrect x 3

The PUK code MUST COME FROM THE SERVICE PROVIDER as it is SIM specific! I would ask to speak to a supervisor if after identifying yourself as the legal owner of the SIM they refuse to give it to you!
Most service provider will also give you the PUK code in your Pre-Paid Online management site when you register the SIM online.
Hope it helps!

Tip & How-To about Cell Phones
Your phone is asking for a PUK code?

Is your phone asking for a PUK code. PUK = Personal Unlocking Key. Personal Unblocking Key, or PIN Unblocking Key.

This can only come from your cellphone carrier and usually the company that still owns the phone under the agreement. Sometimes it is because you have put another SIM card in it, and they own the phone and need you to use them as carrier to get the price of the phone back, or you are in default of payment, or on a Pay as You Go plan, it is over expired. I can also happen if you have entered the unlock code wrongly three times. This often happens when a phone is stolen or lost and has been found by or sold to someone else who then try and use the phone. Wikipedia A personal unblocking code (PUC), also known as a PIN unlock key (PUK), is used in 3GPP mobile phones to reset a personal identification number (PIN) that has been lost or forgotten.
Most mobile telephones offer the feature of PIN protection. After switching on the phone, if the PIN security function is active, the user is requested to enter a 4-8 digit PIN enabling the phone's non-emergency calling functions. If the wrong PIN is typed in more than three times, either the SIM card, the device, or both become locked. They can be returned to their original unlocked state by entering a PUC, provided by the service operator after verification. If the wrong PUC is entered ten times in a row, the device will become permanently blocked and unrecoverable, requiring a new SIM card. Cellular phone users are therefore advised by most providers to keep their PUC written down in a safe place separate from the device.
The PUC (PUK) is a SIM-specific code assigned and provided by the service provider.
Once you enter the PUK code, you must set a PIN. The PUK and PUK2 are used to unlock the PIN and PIN2 codes respectively if your SIM card is blocked
From Bell
The PIN unblocking key (PUK; sometimes called personal unlocking key) is a master security code for unblocking and resetting the personal identification number (PIN) for your SIM card. For added security, the PUK is unique to your SIM card. If your PIN code is active and you enter it incorrectly three times, your SIM card will be blocked. You won't be able to use your phone, except for emergency calls. You must enter your PUK into your phone to unblock the SIM card. If your SIM card becomes blocked, Contact us to get your PUK.
You may be able to do it from the website or your cellular provider. This is from Orange - T-Mobile in the UK.
Your phone can become blocked in a number of ways - one of them is if you enter your SIM card PIN number incorrectly three times in a row. To unblock your SIM card, you will need to use something called a PUK (Personal Unblocking Key).
Remember that unblocking is different to unlocking. Read more information on unlocking your device.

Doesn't show contact of sim card of samsung galaxy GT-s5570 can u give me format code of samsung GT-s5570


Hi,

I'm Ben and -- hopefully -- I can provide some meaningful

assistance.

It seems that your SIM card is locked.

SIM CARD:

If you enter a wrong PIN code too many times, usually three,

your SIM will lock itself. This protects you from someone using

your personal information or making calls if your cell phone is

lost or stolen. You may see "PIN blocked" or Enter PUK code" on

your cell phone display. The PUK code stands for PIN Unblocking

Key. In the U.S., the PUK code is rarely provided when you get

your subscription.

If you do not have your PUK code, contact the Customer Care

customer again. Give them your phone number and once they

are sure it is really you, they will give you the PUK code.
You will then be asked to set a new PIN code. Once you have

your PUK be sure to keep it in a safe place.

Note that if you enter a wrong PUK 10 times in a row, the SIM

will be permanently blocked, and you'll need to purchase a new

SIM card.

I have forgot the password of privacy lock of my samsung sgh m200 plz tell the correct way


Your Samsung device requests PIN (Personal Identification Number) and PUK (Personal Unblocking Key) codes to protect your SIM card and device against unauthorized use. Note that all PIN and PUK codes are provided by your network operator. Samsung is not able to provide you PIN or PUK codes.

Please take note of the following:

When your insert your SIM card and boot up your device for the first time, you need to enter the PIN code. For security reasons it is recommended to change it to your own code, instructions on how to change the PIN code in your device is provided in the user guide or Nokia web site. If the PIN code is entered incorrectly multiple times, your device may request a PUK code to further validate the user's identity and to unlock and change the blocked PIN code.

The PIN2 code is a PIN code which acts as a second layer of protection for certain features of your phone. If the PIN2 code is entered incorrectly multiple times, your phone may request a PUK2 code.

If you have forgot or simply do not know the codes, you must contact your Network Operator for assistance. However, if you have already contacted but the code does not work, you should consider getting a new SIM card.

Whay is the puk code for samsuntg GT-E2120L


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

The SIM card protects your subscription and not the phone from unauthorised users. If you change SIM cards you can still use your phone with a new SIM card. Most SIM cards are blocked at the time of purchase. If your SIM card lock is on you have to enter your PIN (Personal Identity Card) every time you turn on the phone.

If you enter the wrong password three times in a row the SIM card gets blocked. This is indicated by the message PIN Blocked To unblock this you need to enter your PUK

Note:

card (Personal Unblocking Key). Your PIN and PUK is supplied by your service provider. You can edit your PIN and select a new four to eight digit number
  • If the Message Codes do not match appears when you edit your PIN you entered the new PIN incorrectly.
  • If the message Wrong PIN followed by Old PIN appears then it means that you have entered the old PIN incorrectly.

To unblock your SIM card:
  1. When PIN Blocked appears enter your PUK > OK
  2. Enter a new four to eight PIN > OK
  3. Re-enter the new PIN to confirm > OK

To edit your PIN:
  1. > Settings > the General tab > Security > Locks > SIM Protection > Change PIN
  2. Enter your PIN > OK
  3. Enter a new four to eight digit PIN to confirm > OK

To turn the SIM card On /Off
  1. > Settings > the General tab > Security > Locks > SIM Protection > Protection and select On or Off
  2. Enter your PIN > OK
