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.

SOURCE: PUK Blocked? What does that mean?

It's mean you entering wrong pin code for many times when you try to unlock lg xenon password and your phone asking your puk code to prevent your sim card blocking. This code can you found at your sim card package or call from your network provider. Don't try to use any code from here to unlock lg phone password since only your network provider have that information.

Pls my visafone haier c5000 was mistakenly blocked n i've lost my sim card how do oget my PUK code?


I don't quite understand when you said "I've lost my sim card, how to get my PUK Code?", PUK code is specific for every sim cards, so if you have lost that sim card which was blocked, I don't think you will ever need the PUK code for that sim card. But if you mean that your sim card is blocked and you are being asked for PUK Code, please follow the instructions given HERE. This is one of my "how to's" about PUK Code issue.

Let me know if ou need further help.

Good Luck.

Thanks for using FixYa.

PUK Blocked? What does that mean?


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

Puk code is blocked and i can't dail out or recieve calls or do any thing else.


PUK and PIN are the property of the service provider. hence you should call their helpline and ask for the PUK. The default is 00000000 (eight zeros) but as you say the SIM is locked means that you have given wrong PUK more than five times. Ask the helpline of your service provider.

My samsung mobile phone has beenpuk blocked.


if you see PUK blocked it only means that you unsuccessfully entered the wrong pass code many times it permanently locked your sim. you can still check it with your Service Provider but i think you need to have a new sim card.

Pin blocked and do not have the puk code


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.)

PUK means "personal unlocking key" .

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