PUK code stands for pin unlock code. It comes when you enter wrong code for your pin code three times. It is a security feature of your sim card to avoid unauthorised access.
When you enable pin code on your sim card, your phone automatically asks for pin no. when switched on. If the pin is entered wrongly 3 times. It locks the sim, and asks for PUK code. The PUK code needs to be obtained from your provider. If you enter PUK wrongly 10 times, your sim card will be permanently blocked and you will need to obtain a new sim card. Hence kindly contact your network for the right puk code.
dont try more than 3 times.If you try more than 3 times the Sim will get
locked.And it will ask for PIN code.Both these PUK and PIN code can be given
only by the network service provider. Please call the network service provider
of your mobile.And ask him to provide the PUK code or PIN code.He will ask you
some basic details like name,date of birth for his verification.And he
willprovide you the PUK and PIN
code.This is done for free of cost.

ask your service provider for the PUK numbe. after getting the PUK
number, go to security settings and choose change PIN, it will ask for
old PIN number, try a random number and then it will show, sim blocked,
please insert PUK number. insert the PUK you got from your operator and then you will be able to change your PIN and hence remove it.
sorry but sim is permantly blocked now. If sim pin is entered incorrectly 3 times the phone will request a PUK code. If you continue to enter pin incorrectly 10 more times the sim will block permantly. Hence PUK blocked. The best thing to do now will be too contact your service provider to see if they can replace your sim? Hope that helps?
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.

your subscription and not the phone from unauthorised users. If you
change SIM cards you can still use your phone with a new SIM card. Most
SIM cards are blocked at the time of purchase. If your SIM card lock is
on you have to enter your PIN (Personal Identity Card) every time you turn on the phone.

card (Personal Unblocking Key). Your PIN and PUK
is supplied by your service provider. You can edit your PIN and select
a new four to eight digit number
