Hi,

How many of Us have Actually Seen this Code on the Cellphone?

This is not an ERROR. PUK stands for ' Personal Unblocking Key'. It is also known as PUC ( Personal Unblocking Code ). This Code could ONLY be offered by the Service Providers. You need to Call up the Service Provider ( More often from another Phone ) and ask for PUK. You need to Verify all the Personal Details before they would Provide PUK Code.

There is NO Charge for the same. For Most of the Service Provider's, if you Enter Wrong PUK Code more than 3 Times, either the Device, Sim or Both could be Damaged.

Why this usually Happen?

I could Provide you with the Most Common Reason. Whenever you tried to Use a Sim that belongs to a Different Carrier, more often you would Face this Problem.

Note - There is no way to get PUK code from any other Vendor, Site or anyone.

Make sure Once you Call them, you also need to Provide them with your Cellphone IMEI ( International Mobile Equipment Identity ). This could be retrieved by Pressing *#06# on your Handset.

Hope i helped you.

What is puk code?


A PUK (PIN Unlock Key) code is required to unlock SIM cards that have become locked following three successive incorrect PIN entries. If your SIM card becomes locked, you will need to get a PUK code from your service provider to unlock your SIM card.

You can obtain your phone's PUK code from your local operator by calling customer care.

Once you receive your PUK code, you will need to enter it into your phone to set a new PIN code.

Note: If you enter the wrong PUK code 10 times in a row, your SIM card will be invalidated, and you will need to purchase a new SIM Card. The phone will display the following error: "PUK blocked call operator."

Hope that's help you...

My daughter has put a code in her phone and locked her self out


Hi Christine,

Do not worry about anything. You can easily obtain the PUK code without any charge, from your service provider by calling on Customer care number.
PUK is PIN Unlocking Code. When you enter a wrong PIN for 3 times the SIM gets locked and asks for a PUK code. Once you get the PUK code from your service provider you can create a new PIN for the SIM card.

Please note that if you Enter a Wrong PUK 10 times your SIM card will be corrupt and you will not be able to use it. So please do not try to guess the PUK.
PUK code cannot be generated by any software. Only your service provide can give you the PUK code for your SIM.

We appreciate your comments and ratings. If you find this solution helpful, please do not forget to rate it.

Thank you for choosing Fixya.

I went to lock my phone when not in use and it asked for pin number and i put it in and it said wrong pin number now its asking for a puk code and i dont have any idea what a puk code is


1. PIN and PUK are the domain of the service provider. 2. The default PIN and PUK are 00000000 (eight zeros). 3. My suggestion is not to lock your phone when not in use as one is likely to forget the code. And when forgotten, the only way out is to get the firmware reinstalled loosing all data that you are trying to protect now. Its upto ypu now to take the risk of forgetting or not.

PUK locked


Contact your network provider and ask if they can give you the PUK unlock. For now don't use your sim coz it can be permanently be locked if you try to unlocked it without the correct PUK code.

But if you still have the paper slip of your sim it have the puk code. Or the plastic card its originally attached just look into PUK if it have.

My kids have locked my phone and i can not unlock it . i called the 1800 number and they said to talk to you at lg


SIM pin code:
This is a pin code that locks the sim card until you enter the correct code. This protects your account, even
if your sim is put into another handset. To reset it, you need the PUK code:
Pin Unlock Code (PUK)
If you miss key (or forget) your SIM pin code, and enter the wrong one 3-5 times in a row, the SIM will lock up, and you’ll need to enter the PUK unlock code to release it. You should ask your Network Service Provider for this code when you need it. Don’t try to guess it, because after a few wrong guesses, the SIM card will be permanently disabled.
