Enter PUK code, asked for new PIN code, but then get "code error"

I did go through the process suggested after being asked to provide the PUK code (ie got the proper code from AT&T). When I enter it, I am then asked to "enter new PIN code". I enter a code. Then I'm asked to "verify new PIN code". I enter the same number. Then I'm locked out again, and asked for the PUK code all over again!

SOURCE: From a previous questioner: "After being asked to


Test using a different compatible SIM card, since the PUK code lock belongs to the SIM and not to the phone, the new SIM will be initially unlocked, or will ask its own PIN code.

If the new SIM gets locked by itself, then the problem is the phone. If the problem does not occur with the new SIM, the original SIM card was defective.

If the problem happens again with a brand new SIM, then you will need first to reset the phone to factory settings. If still no luck, reinstall the phone firmware. See link below on firmware update. If you go for the upgrade, ensure that you download right firmware. Read instructions and perform procedure as explained. If done in the wrong way the firmware update may damage the phone.

Secret codes to reset and get info:

  • *#06#IMEI number (International Mobile Equipment Identity).
  • *#0000#Firmware version.
  • #7780#Factory Reset.
  • *#7370#Format phone.
Note format and factory reset will delete the files stored in the phone.

Test a different SIM card first.

Sony ericsson w91oi blocked pin, need PUK code last night i forgot my pin, and entered the wrong one three times, i now know my pin but i have no more attempts and i need the PUK code to unlock my phone,...

Hi, If you forget the security code, you get this error.. The default security code for nokia is 12345 If you forgot you can generate master code using your IMEI, which can be viewed by pressing *#06# .
If your handset asks for PUK code, you need to contact the service provider and provide them 20 digit sim number for the PUK code .
Service provider numbers will be toll free.
Once you get the PUK code, enter it . And then it will ask for new PIN number, you need to enter 0000 twice. I hope this information will be helpfull to you

Wrong pin i entered on ma new phone

if its troubling u abt pin code and if u dont remember it, then u've a very simple procedure.
Read this section & u'll surely be able to enter a new pin code.

Enter Pin code of ur wish, u just need to block the sim so that ur phone asks u PUK code.
i guess pin code tries are abt 5-7 times.
So it will say Sim card Blocked Enter PUK code.
Now call to customer care from other number of same newtork provider & ask then ur PUK code.
they will ask u a 16 digit code, which is printed on ur sim card. after u provide 16 digit code to customer code, they will provide u ur PUK code,
Enter the PUK code given & now enter ur New pin code.
This is quite lenghty process but 110% working.
If u like my post, please rate me up, i really need some good ratings..

Puk code for a nokia6300

Hi everyone

Every PUK code is unique so nobody can tell you your PUK number, but i will tell you what you can do!
1) If you still have your packet that your Sim Card came in, you should find your PUK number in there, if you don't have the packet, please read bellow.

2) You must get a phone that is on the same network as your phone and call the networks Customer Care and ask them for your PUK number, they will ask you for your phone number, then they will tell you your PUK number. Once you have done this, you will be able to reset your Pin number so you will be able to go into your phone again.

Please also remember to give this solution a FixYa! rating if it helps you.

Kind regards
