Question about LG Vu CU920 Cellular Phone
My phone needs a puk code when i turn the phone one.
Hi and welcome to FixYa,
A PUK (Personal Unblocking Key) is the code required for enabling/unlocking a sim card. This disabling/lock is a result of erroneously entering the PIN (Personal Identification Number) multiple times. Depending on the SIM card issuer, erroneously entering the PUK code multiple times would result to a permanently blocked/disabled SIM card. The PUK code is an OTW (one time write) only and therefore the only way to open the card is with the PUK code.
In all instances, it has nothing to do with the phone itself but with the SIM card, hence, the LG Vu CU920 would still work with another SIM card.
Hope that this be of initial help/idea. Good luck and thank you for using FixYa.

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.

Click that and on the top of the page that loads is ur PUK code!

g when i first got my phone. I took it to my provider and they had to give me a new SIM card and it fixed the problem. But you lose whatever is saved on the original SIM card.
