PUK means "personal unlocking key" .

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

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 related 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.

Cant unlock phone asking for puk code not sure where to find it


You can only get a PUK code from the SIM provider, so you'll have to contact them directly.

Alternatively just insert a new compatible SIM card; you'll have a new phone number and won't be able to access prepaid credit or other data stored on the locked SIM, but at least you will be able to use your phone.

I dont know what my PUK code is and i cant find it


Hi,

Let me give you a little background and then some solutions. This is generic because I don't know your carrier. I'm using ATT as an example.

Phones are naturally unlocked, but a service provider might lock them

When originally manufactured, all GSM cell phones are unlocked. That is, they can be used with any SIM from any cellphone service provider - always assuming, of course, that the cellphone service provider has compatible GSM service on the same frequency bands that the phone can operate on.

Most cell phone service providers electronically 'lock' the phone so that it can only be used with their service. There are obvious reasons why they choose to do this - in particular, to force you to pay what are usually very high roaming charges when you take your phone out of their network and use it elsewhere in the world.

Fortunately, this locking is reversible. With some phones, it is possible to simply enter an unlocking password code into the phone and it is immediately then unlocked. Other phones need to be connected up to a special unlocking data terminal.

Your phone has to be unlocked by the carrier. LG, Motorola, Sony Ericsson, Nokia and most of their ilk, will not give consumers the unlock codes but don't despair.

A PUK (PIN Unlock Key) code is required to unlock SIM cards that have become locked following three successive incorrect PIN entries. If your SIM card becomes locked, you will need to get a PUK code from your carrier. For example, if you have AT&T to unlock your SIM card, you can obtain your phone's PUK code from AT&T by:

● logging in to your my wireless Account online
● using their Technical Support Chat
● calling Customer Care at 1-800-331-0500

To get your phone's PUK code online from ATT:

● Log in to your my wireless Account.
● Select My Services under My Account.
● From the My Services screen, select My Phone/Device.
● Select Unblock SIM Card.
● The Unblock SIM screen will display your PUK code.


Once you receive your PUK code, you will need to enter it into your phone to set a new PIN code.

Note: If you enter the wrong ATT PUK code 10 times in a row, your SIM card will be invalidated, and you will need to purchase a new SIM Card. The phone will display the following error: "PUK blocked call operator."

There are three other ways to unlock a phone:

● The carrier will unlock the phone for you at one of its retail outlets;
● You can do it yourself by clicking on this link Free Unlock Codes ,
● Pay $3.89 at the following website: www.theunlockshack.com/. I have absolutely no affiliation or relationship with The Unlock Shack or its principals.

I trust that this is helpful and solves your problem. All the best

I locked myself out of my own phone . I need the PUK code & PIN code. It won't let me make any calls & I need help!


Hi,

The phone asks for PUK code ( Personal Unblocking Key )c85fe00.pngif a wrong PIN code is entered repeatedly

PUK code is related to the SIM card you are using in your phone and not the phone itself. The code can be supplied only by the cellular service provider.

So, kindly call the customer support of your cellular service provider using another phone and they will provide you with the code free of charge after verifying the details.

Please note: Entering a wrong PUK code ten times in a row permanently disables the SIM card. Soc85fe00.png please be careful while entering the PUK code

Hope you will find this information helpful. Thanks for using FixYa.

I have this prepaid simcard from Turkey, It is locked now and I do not have the PUK number to open it. Is there anyway, I can unlock it. I don't live in Turkey anymore. Thank you


Usually the PUK code for prepaid sim card is located on the credit card like card where the sim card was attached to. You can also go to the sim card issuer website to request the PUK code.

My cell phone is lock but i cant unlock it its look like its puk


HI, PUK code is a SIM specific code assigned by your service provider. No way you can guess & enter it. So, when it asks for the PUK code, don’t do anything, get the PUK code from your service provider.

Call to customer care using any other mobile phone which uses the same service provider. They will ask some details about you to make sure you are the owner of the SIM card. Questions might include your billing address, email ID, numbers you recently called or messaged etc. They might even ask you number printed on the SIM card, so be prepared with all details before calling them. Once you get the PUK code, enter it into the phone & your phone will return to normal.

Good luck!!!

Samsumg propel locked the puk code; how do i fix?


If you have entered the puk code wrong too many times you may have to get a new sim card.

puk code, personal unlocking key. It is sim card related / specific, if you take the sim card out from the phone, the phone will work with another sim card.

The puk comes up when the pin code has been entered wrong 3 times. To get the puk code for your sim card, you have to call the service provider of that sim card. They are the only ones who can provide you with the right puk code for that sim card.

The puk code may also have came with the documentation of the sim card, if its a prepaid card the puk code comes on the documents or on the box of the product.

if your unable to obtain the puk code, get a new sim card.

also entering the puk code wrong too many times will eventually ruin the sim card forcing you to buy or contact your service provider for a new sim card.

There are no puk code calculators or anything that we can do about it, you can buy premium assistance and you will get this same response. Theres no other solution.

You have to contact the phone service provider of that sim card or replace the sim card.

Can't help you even if you paid.

UNBLOCK MY PUK CODE



PUK stands for 'Pin Unlock Code', and has to be entered if you've locked your SIM by repeatedly entering the wrong PIN code. If you're asked for a PUK code, you've had more goes at guessing your SIM card PIN code than you're allowed. You'll need to phone your network provider Customer Services for your PUK code to unlock the SIM. For security reasons, it's only the network operator that can legally provide you with a PUK code to unlock your SIM.With some phones you will get a cert card with your sim card and it might have the 8 digit PUK on it. if this has been entered 10 times or more incorrectly then you will need a new sim card
