Puk means personal unlock key, and is prompted when you enter the wrong pin three times.
Lost PUK code can be retrieved calling the phone company that released the sim card inside your phone.
If you use a different sim card the phone will not ask the PUK code anymore.

My phone is nokia 1100 puk code plz send me the puk


Hello,

let me start first by telling your the meaning of PUK code. It means "Personal Unblocking Code".

Just has the names personal implies, it means it is a personal code that now one else should know except you. So if I know the code then it means it is no more personal.

What I am trying to say is that the code can only be give to you by your service provider. Your service provider who are the manufacturers of the line you are using are the only ones that has the PUK code to your line.

You can get to your service provider through phone by calling them. Calling your service provider should be toll free.

Your service provider will ask you some questions concerning your line in order to confirm that you are the owner of the line before they give out the PUK code. The questions would be something like; "When did you make the last call on your phone?", "what was the last number you dialed?" etc. These questions varies from one service provider to the other.

Buy now, I believe it is clear how to get your PUK code. If you are not satisfied or you still don't understand, please let me know so that I may help you further....

Regards.

What does puk blocked mean?


Hi.

PUK means "personal unlocking key" .

The PUK code is asked if you enter a wrong pin 3 times.

The PUK code is a code associated with the SIM card and not with the phone.

You have only two ways to get rid of the PUK code. Either you replace the SIM card , or you call phone provider that issued the sim cadr (eg. At&T, Virgin, Tmobile , Vodafone, Telecom etc.)


You need to call the phone company that released the SIM card, they can retrieve the PUK code from a database for free.

In your case you need to contact your SIM card provider technical support to unlock the SIM.

The PIN and PUK are linked to the SIM card, not to the phone.

If you replace the SIM card with a different one, then the phone will not ask for the PUK anymore.

The PUK & PIN codes are Security Codes that are on the SIM card. PIN( Personal Identification Number ) PUK ( Pin Unlock Key). when the PIN code in entred wrong the SIM automatically Blocks the PIN. to unlock the PIN you need to Enter the PUK. but if you enter the PUK wrong the Entire SIM is Locked.

The PIN Code & the PUK codes are Only Known by your Network Provider. you have to get in touch with them to get the codes. how ever if you have PUK blocked you will have to get a replacement SIM

What does PUK Blocked mean


It means the puk has been entered in wrong more than 3 times and you must now get a new sim card


Typically when a phone is asking for a PUK code it means you have tried to edit or set the secuirty pin code. Unfortunately these codes are already predefined by the sim card and the service provider. It gives you the sensation that you can set or change the code but you cannot. You get 3 attempts to enter the correct code after which the phone asks for a PUK code. When it asks for the PUK you also get three tries to undo it. Again PUK codes are predefined by the sim card and the service provider. If you call your service providers technical support number or customer service number they can provide you with the PUK or the PIN code.

>>>> Once the PUK has been entered in wrong 3 times the sim card is shot and deactivated. At this point you will need to get a new sim card to get your phone up and running again. If you have numbers stored to your sim card and not to your phone you will have lost them.

Puk code


Greetings! When the sim card is asking a PUK code, it means that you have type in the wrong pincode 10 times (depends on sim).

The mobile SIM card comes with a PUK (Personal Unblocking Key) code or PIN

PUK is somewhat protection to your sim card. PUK code is found on the original SIM card or you can ask the Telecom provider for your PUK code.

Hope this helps
