Code to unblock puk codes


to my knowledge, this cannot happen without someone actually locking the sim, so you may want to contact your employer, but just in case your employer doesn't know whats happening,
here are instructions to find your puk code for att, if you have a different carrier, contact their customer support for further instruction

Obtain a PUK Code

Instructions: When the error message "ENTER PUK CODE" is shown on the screen of the device:
  1. Log into myAT&T.
  2. Select Wireless from the myAT&T tab at the top of the page.
  3. Select Phone/Device.
  4. Click Unblock SIM Card.
  5. A new page will open, containing the PUK code for your phone. Enter the code on your phone's screen to unblock the SIM and create a new PIN.
Unblock SIM Card
  1. Enter the eight-digit PUK code on the phone, then press OK/Yes.
    Note: Some Motorola phone users need to enter **05* if "enter PUK" is not already displayed. After entering **05*, enter the eight-digit PUK code and press OK.
  2. Select a new PIN code, then press OK/Yes.
  3. Re-enter the PIN code, then press OK/Yes.
  4. If the codes were entered successfully, the phone is ready for use.
If the incorrect PUK code is entered 10 times in a row, the SIM card becomes permanently locked and a new SIM card must be purchased. If the device is requesting PUK2, call Customer Care at 800-331-0500.

My phone is saying enter puk now it doesnt work it



These directions are for an AT and T phone, but other than that would be the same for any carrier.

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 phone carrier to unlock your SIM card.

You can obtain your phone's PUK code from your carrier in one of these ways:

Log in to Your account.online

Use a Technical Support Chat

Contact your carriers Customer Care

Get Your Phone's PUK Code Online

Go to the Phone/Device page.

From the My Phone/Device screen, select the Unblock SIM Card link under the My Make & Model heading.

The Unblock SIM screen will display your PUK code and will give you instructions for unblocking your SIM Card.

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

My sons LG mobile has puk blocked on it how do a free it?


Hello there,

First PUK means, personal unblocking key. It is simple to get it off the phone. The PUK can be found mostly in the pack where you took out the sim card of the phone from. You will see some codes on the pack of the sim, there you will also see the PUK code, enter it and it will ask you to enter a new security code. Then you enter it and the sim will be unlocked.

PUK mainly blocks the sim card from working on the phone. you can use a new sim card on the phone and it will work perfectly fine.

If you do not have the sim pack, you can contact the customer care or help center of the sim card and they will give you the PUK code. try that with another phone.

Thank you for choosing fixya

My phone says pin blocked & enter the puk code .so what can i do??


Hello,

since you have entered the sims pin code wrong 3 times, you need to enter the puk code which resets the pin code. you get the puk code from the phone service provider or carrier that you are with, call their customer service number and they will give you the puk code as long as you are the registered owner of that phone / sim card account.

your phone will work with any other sim card -- if you can't get the puk code.

The puk code is not related to the phone at all, its a feature of the sim card, and if the sim card is changed to another you will not get puk code requests anymore (the original sim card will still need the puk code).

My sister changed the lock code on my phone and forgot it. i need to unlock my phone.


Hey!
This worked for me last night so here we go. Step 1: Just enter a random code until your phone says enter PUK code. Step 2: Ring your phone company and retrieve your PUK code. Step 3: Enter the PUK code and you will be asked to make a new PIN code.
P.S Don't forget your PUK code, you might need it in the future!
Hope this helped!

My phone is asking for a puk...then it asks me to set up a new pin.....i have no idea what a puk is and I have never set up a pin....help


  • if its the PUK code you need contact your customer service...they are the only ones that have it. as far a setting up a pin you shouldnt have to but if its asking for one most all phones default phone lock code is 1111 but the phones sercurity default lock code is 0000 once you have the PUK code and have entered it....try the 1111 first then it will have you enter it again if that dont work try the 0000 If the incorrect lock code is entered more than 3 times the phone will display "ENTER PUK". just enter the PUK code again

    Have chosen to use a PUK code. have entered one. and now are trying to enter the same code and it isnt working.


    hi, the puk code is a code locked into the sim card the only way you can get this code is by calling your service provider their is no way you can change the puk code as its locked into the sim.

    The main reason the phone asks for puk code is if the user has entered the wrong lock code more than 5 times then the phone will ask for the puk code.

    All you need to do is call your service provider and they will give you this code over the phone for free write it down for future reference but remember this code will only work with that one sim card.

    Dont try entering the wrong puk code more than five times if you do your phone is hard locked and can no longer be used.

    So call your service provider and ask them for the puk code they dont charge for this and it will get your phone working again.

    Let me know how you get on or if you need further assistance ok

    My sim won't work without d puk code


    hey

    the puk code prompt comes up when you have entered the pin code wrong 3 times.

    to get the puk code you need to call your phone service provider, the will give it to you, if you try to gess the puk code wrong too many times it will make your ssim card useless, so get the right code from your provider, they are the only ones that have it.

    after the puk code it will ask you to enter a new pin code and then confirm the pin code. then the sim will work normally and ask for pin again next time instead of puk, puk will come again if you enter pin wrong 3 times.

    PUK code


    The Puk number depends on the pin lock on the sim, the phone will still work with a different Sim card.

    To unlock the Puk code you need to call the contact number for the service provider for your Sim. Alternatively you can unlock the PUK code at a local shop for a small fee, £10 or £20 in UK.

    To unlock PUK, call the company that branded your Sim card.

    For example , f you are in UK, and have lost vodafone or Orange pin, and puk code kicked in, then contact is below.


    Vodafone Contact us

    Vodafone UK - Contact us

    use google to find contact number for your sim card fone company in your area. That is the only way to unlock PUK for free, and it always work.
