PUK - Personal Unblocking Key. it is unique eight digit code specific to your SIM card. If an incorrect PUK code is entered after the 10th attempt, you will block your SIM card permanently you can get PUK code from following ways 1)The PUK code is in your SIM card documentation Starter Pack.
OR 2}Contact your mobile phone provider and after providing identification, they can give you the PUK code.
Hi the PUK code is the security code for the sim card its on their to stop people stealing your numbers, the only place you can get the PUK code from is your service provider. All you need to do is give them a call and give them the phone number of the sim card thats asking for the PUK code or give them the number written on the sim card, they will then give you the 10digit PUK code. your service provider dont charge for this service and will give you the code over the phone for free.
now the other option you have is if you dont need to use that sim card then you could go and get a new sim card and put this in your phone, also when you buy a new or get a new sim card you will be given the PUK code it will be written on the card the sim card is stuck to.
their is no other way of getting the PUK code as its only help by the person who owns the sim card and the service provider so you will need to give them a call to get the code but it is free and they will give it you over the phone.
some service providers will give you the PUK code via their web site but not all service providers offer this service so you will need to check this.
let me know if you need further assistance ok
plz rate this solution as i have a whole page of unrated posts, thanks
if your phone is asking for the PUK code then this is the code for the sim card if it lets you enter a code then all you need to do is contact your service provider and give ask them for the PUK code, they will give you this for free over the phone.
if how ever you have entered the PUK code wrong a certain amount of times then this will block the sim card and it will mean that this sim card can no longer be used, so if your phone is asking for the PUK code then call your service provider and ask them for the code, this will then allow you to use that sim card.
if the PUK code is blocked and can no longer be used then your only other option would be to get another sim card for the phone that is for the network your phone can use if the sim card thats asking for the PUK code is say from vodafone then you need to get another vodafone sim card that is unless you phone has been duel banded and can use any network.
when you get a new sim card you should get the PUK code for that sim card so if you do go for a new sim card then keep this number handy in case you ever need the PUK code again.
The PUK code is assigned to every single sim cad made and every single sim card has its own unique code that can only be found through your service provider so if they give you the PUK code for the sim card thats asking then remember this code will only work with that sim card and no other.
from what i can remember you get 10 chances of getting the PUK right before the sim card gets locked and once the seim card is locked it can never be unlocked so its not wort trying to guess the code as its a random 8 or 11 digit number so guessing the correct code would be harder than winning the lottery.
hi, the PUK code is the security code for the sim card and not the phone, so the message your being told is that this sim card is now blocked this happens if the wrong PUK code has been entered more than 10 times.
All you need to do is get a new sim card for the network your phone is locked to or the same network as the sim card that is in the phone now, once you put this new sim card in you should be able to use your phone, if how ever it still asks for a PUK code then all you need to do is call the service provider for that sim card and ask them for the PUK code they will give you this code for free over the phone
so your phone is not locked its just the sim card, it could be locked if the sim card has been not used for 180 days as they get switched of after this long with no use, so putting a new sim card in your phone will solve your problem
