SOURCE: can't remember phone lock code

Puk code is needed when you have entered the pin code wrong 3 times.

If you have a phone lock code on it and you can't remember to code try the defaults 0000 1234 12345 00000 etc. if you can't unlock it contact your dealer with proof or pruchase or contact a samsung service center, you can get those details from www.samsung.com you will most likely have to send the phone to be unlocked.

you can try entering these two codes without a sim card in the phone. write them where you would write 911 phone should restart. then insert the sim card and try turning the phone on.

*2767*3855# = Full Reset
*2767*2878# = Custom Reset

If these don't help then contact samsung for unlock service you will most likely have to send the phone to a service center.

SOURCE: tocco lite phone freeze deactivate fail

here is some info on PUK codes:

try taking battery and SIM out waiting 15 seconds and powering cell back on.

In your case I believe your SIM is now FROZEN or locked. You mostlikely will need to purchase a new SIM card.

A PUK code (Pin Unlock Key) is required when you enter an incorrect PIN 3 times. After entering the wrong PIN 3 times, the card will be locked and you will need to get a PUK code from your service provider to unlock it.

If the wrong PUK code is entered ten times in a row, the SIM card becomes invalid and you will need to purchase a new SIM Card. The phone will display "PUK blocked call operator".

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.

Samsung galaxy s 3 lock sim. asking for puk and new sim code


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.

PUK code is called as PERSONNAL UNBLOCKING KEY.
Your phone will ask for PUK code when you entered the PIN code wrongly several times depending upon the mobile make. The mobile asks for PUK code so that unauthorized persons do not use your mobile for wrong cause.

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 want to know my pin & puk code easily


If you have forgotten your PIN number;
  • Telephone your cell phone service provider and ask for your PUK code. (They are the only ones who can give it to you as it's the SIM card that locks rather than the phone.)
  • Enter a wrong PIN number 3 times and your SIM card will lock (if it's not already locked)
  • Turn off your phone and then turn it on again.
  • When you turn it on enter the PUK code. It will ask you for a new PIN. Enter a new PIN number and that will be the PIN you use from then on.
Keep the PUK code safe somewhere as you could need it again if you forget the PIN again.

    My sim card is blocked on my Blackberry 8830. It keeps asking for to enter a PUK code. I finally found one technician at Sprint yesterday who knew the PUK code but after entering that, then the phone asked...


    PUK code can be used 10 times,then SIM card is gone forever. PUK is needed if 3 times wrong PIN was typed. So type PUK and when ask New PIN choose any number (4 digits) then re-enter again and that's it.
