Well ...bad news. PUK locked that means your friend typed 10times wrong code and now sim card is locked for good-can not be used anymore.If you are on contract then call your provider and ask for new sim. If you wanna keep your number you can ask your network provider and see if its available(in 95% NOT). Even you'll get the new sim with your number all numbers stored in old sim will be gone.

Rate me if helped. Thanks.

Whem I Turn On My Phone It says '' SIM Blocked " , But My Phone Need A SIM


Hi there,

It would appear that you have entered the sim pin code incorrectly 3 times so it has locked.


To unblock your sim card there are 2 ways, Enter the PUK code. The PUK code would be located on the plastic card in which you took your sim card off, If you no longer have this however, Best option is to call your service provider and they are able to provide you with your PUK code.


Thanks.

Turned my phone back on and it was puk locked. i dont remember puting a lock


You need to contact the network provider, the PUK is specific to your phone number and is related to the sim only. After a PIN has been enetered incorrectly 3 times it will request a PUK code which you will have 10 attempts. When contacting your network provider (o2, orange, t-mobile, etc.) they may ask security questions relating to your account.

Hello,
I am sorry that you are experiencing this problem. I will do anything i can to help. The way to solve this problem is to call your Cellular Provider and ask them for the PUK code because a PUK code is not set from a store or by a person. It is set by the network. They will tell you how to disable it and then there you go!
Thank You

PUK stands for Personal Unblocking Key. This is a uniqueeight-digit code specific to your SIM card. This is required when the PINnumber to unlock your mobile phone is entered incorrectly 3 times. You are thengiven 10 attempts to enter your PUK code. If an incorrect PUK code is enteredafter the 10th attempt, you will block your SIM card permanently and willrequire 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 themyour account details and they have confirmed your identity.

you have to get the puk code from your service provider, just call customer care and tell them that you need it and they will give it to you, if you enter in the wrong code 10 times then it will permanently lock your phone, if the puks they give you dont work then you will have to get a new sim
