SOURCE: Puk code

PUK code can only provided from your service provider/carrier. Call them and ask them for your PUK code and enter that into your phone. then it will accept your NEW 4 digit PIN number. Do not enter any more random codes as it will permanently deactivate your SIM card and then you need to buy a new one.

SOURCE: I need PUK code and new pin code

The PUK code is related to the SIM card, not to the phone. If the SIM card is different from the one originally provided with the phone the PUK code won't work.

When you lose the PUK code, the only way to retrieve the code is by calling the phone company that released the card inside the phone.

An alternative way to get rid of the PUK code is by using a different SIM card.

Regards.

SOURCE: My phone is PUK blocked

Hi,


PIN CODE is SIM dependenet and not phone dependent

PUK code in PIN UNLOCKING CODE, which is required when you give PIN number wrongly for 3 times,
This code is OPERATOR specific and not phone specific and you have to call you operator and get PUK if PIN is blocked...

if you provide PUK code wrongly for 7 time, you sim may become useless, then you have to buy new SIM

NOTE: You should ask your service provider,get the PUK,


ENJOY! RATE THIS SOLUTION

SOURCE: PUK Code after entering pin incorrect x 3

The PUK code MUST COME FROM THE SERVICE PROVIDER as it is SIM specific! I would ask to speak to a supervisor if after identifying yourself as the legal owner of the SIM they refuse to give it to you!
Most service provider will also give you the PUK code in your Pre-Paid Online management site when you register the SIM online.
Hope it helps!

SOURCE: HOW TO UNLOCK A CELLPHONE THAT WAS PUK

To find a PUK code all you have to do is call up on the customer care number and ask them to help you with the issue. Before they provide you the PUK code, they will ask you several questions. You need to give them the appropriate information. Customer care of your service provider are the only source from which can give you the PUK code. At the time when you enter a wrong pin number three times. The phone asks you for a PUK number. The PUK code is generally eight digit number This PUK number is an unlocking code which helps you to unlock the phone and use it. If you enter a wrong PUK number 10 times than you simcard gets rejected. Then you will have to but a new simcard. It might happen that your phone might ask you for PUK2 after you enter your PUK number

I put the PUK code. Then I put new PIN. Then I put to verify the new PIN. Then it says: "Code Error"


PUK and PIN = two separate things

PUK = Personal Unlocking Key. Supplied by your cell phone provider as the people who own the phone under an unexpired contract.

PIN = Person Identification Number. The number you use to keep your phone locked and private.

If the phone is stolen the cellphone carrier locks it with a PUK so it can't be used unless the person who has it contacts them. Also the phone is locked if a user tries 4 times unsuccessfully to open a phone using the wrong PIN Number. You can only open it with a PUK code.

I accidently put a pin on my Samsung genio touch, how do I unlock it?


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.

I want to know what is my PUK code for my cellphone?


The PUK is related to your mobile sim card and not the cellphone, cellphones are identified using the IMEI no (15 digit).
PUK code is required by the service provider, which can be located on your sim card to unlock your sim card incase it is accidently locked by entering wrong pin number (4 digits).

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.
