Samsung puk code and pin number

Lisa, PUK codes and PIN codes are not associated with phones. Rather, they are a function of your network. That is to say, they are related to your sim card.
Pin codes are a range of 4 to 6 digit numbers initially assigned to your sim to enable you lock and unlock it. You could change this to digits of your choice.
PUK codes are some 10 digit code, also assigned to your sim card by your network providers, (but which unlike pin codes can't be changed).
If in the event of trying to enter your PIN, you enter the wrong number 3 times in a row, your sim would be blocked, and would prompt you for your PUK code.
The correct PUK code must be entered, because after the 10th wrong attempt, you line would be blocked permanently.
Now, if you check your original sim certificate, you would find both your PIN and PUK. But in case you cant find it, contact your network providers, they should provide you with the codes, and when they do, write it down and keep somewhere safe.

I hope that helped?
Have a lovely day.

PIN stands for Personal Identification Number. When you switch off your mobile and switch on again it will ask your PIN No. If you enter the PIN No three times wrong then your mobile will ask for the PUK
The PIN and PUK are provided on your SIM package, and can be changed many times. The basic purpose of these codes is to provide a security.These codes are normally used to prevent your SIM card from unauthorized use.

code from the package that has come with your SIM card Get these codes from SIM package and unlock your mobile phoe.But if you have changed your PIN and now have forgotten it then there is also a way to resolve it. When you give an incorrect PIN three times to your mobile phone it will block your SIM card, then in this case you have to provide a PUK given to you by network provider. And you can get your PUK any time by calling at the help line number of your network service centre

Puk blocked!


Here's what it means:

PIN Unblocking Key (PUK) - If a GSM or GAIT subscriber enters the wrong PIN three times in a row, then the wireless mobile phone is locked until the correct PUK is entered.

What to do:

Call ATT and ask for the PUK code. You will need to verify the account when you call, so if you do have the info (last 4 of the SSN on the acct or the password)

Other option is to bring that to a cellphone repair shop and have it hack on its PUK .

Hope this helps... Don't forget your rating.

Puk number

puk number is given by the network provider ....

i think you blocked the pin code by entering the wrong pin code for 3 times so it is asking for the puk code ..

to get puk code you must follow these steps :

1. call to your network provider customer care

2. tell them that your pin code got blocked you want puk code

3. if they ask any details about the sim card owner you answer that one ...

4. then make a note of the puk code and enter in to your cell

note :
if you enter the wrong puk code for more than 3 or 10 times your sim will get fully blocked you must purchase the duplicate sim card or you must contact the network provider shoppe ...
