SOURCE: PUK disabled and Sim Card Blocked on Samsung SGH-M300?

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.

Your PUK (Pin Unblocking Key) can only be found by calling your service provider. Once they give you this information, they'll give you where to input it to unblock your SIM. Remember to reset the default SIM PIN back to 0000, so that you'll not have to go through that again.

Puknumber wrong on back of my phone


You are confused Mona. The number on the back of your phone is an IMEI number, it is the identification number of your phone. A PUK Code is something completely different and is a lock put on the phone by the carrier for a number of reasons, number 1 is the phone has been reported stolen, number 2 is default of payment, number 3 is someone trying the consumer access code put on by the owner more that 3 times. Only the cellular carrier of that phone can give you the PUK Code.

This explains in full.

Tip & How-To about Cell Phones
Your phone is asking for a PUK code? Is your phone asking for a PUK code. PUK = Personal Unlocking Key. Personal Unblocking Key, or PIN Unblocking Key.

This can only come from your cellphone carrier and usually the company that still owns the phone under the agreement. Sometimes it is because you have put another SIM card in it, and they own the phone and need you to use them as carrier to get the price of the phone back, or you are in default of payment, or on a Pay as You Go plan, it is over expired. I can also happen if you have entered the unlock code wrongly three times. This often happens when a phone is stolen or lost and has been found by or sold to someone else who then try and use the phone.
Wikipedia
A personal unblocking code (PUC), also known as a PIN unlock key (PUK), is used in 3GPP mobile phones to reset a personal identification number (PIN) that has been lost or forgotten.
Most mobile telephones offer the feature of PIN protection. After switching on the phone, if the PIN security function is active, the user is requested to enter a 4-8 digit PIN enabling the phone's non-emergency calling functions. If the wrong PIN is typed in more than three times, either the SIM card, the device, or both become locked. They can be returned to their original unlocked state by entering a PUC, provided by the service operator after verification. If the wrong PUC is entered ten times in a row, the device will become permanently blocked and unrecoverable, requiring a new SIM card. Cellular phone users are therefore advised by most providers to keep their PUC written down in a safe place separate from the device.
The PUC (PUK) is a SIM-specific code assigned and provided by the service provider.
Once you enter the PUK code, you must set a PIN. The PUK and PUK2 are used to unlock the PIN and PIN2 codes respectively if your SIM card is blocked
From Bell
The PIN unblocking key (PUK; sometimes called personal unlocking key) is a master security code for unblocking and resetting the personal identification number (PIN) for your SIM card. For added security, the PUK is unique to your SIM card.
If your PIN code is active and you enter it incorrectly three times, your SIM card will be blocked. You won't be able to use your phone, except for emergency calls. You must enter your PUK into your phone to unblock the SIM card.
If your SIM card becomes blocked, Contact us to get your PUK. You may be able to do it from the website or your cellular provider. This is from Orange - T-Mobile in the UK.

Your phone can become blocked in a number of ways - one of them is if you enter your SIM card PIN number incorrectly three times in a row.
To unblock your SIM card, you will need to use something called a PUK (Personal Unblocking Key).
Remember that unblocking is different to unlocking. Read more information on unlocking your device.

Hi my sons phone is showing enter PUK code! can you help or do I have to contact his network/supplier? thankyou


PUK code stands for pin unlock code. It comes when you enter wrong code for your pin code three times. It is a security feature of your sim card to avoid unauthorised access.

When you enable pin code on your sim card, your phone automatically asks for pin no. when switched on. If the pin is entered wrongly 3 times. It locks the sim, and asks for PUK code. The PUK code needs to be obtained from your provider. If you enter PUK wrongly 10 times, your sim card will be permanently blocked and you will need to obtain a new sim card. Hence kindly contact your network for the right puk code.

I do not know puk code


hi,
If you attempt to enter wrong PIN code more than 3 times, then your pin code will be blocked and you need to enter PUK code to unlock it.

You can get your PUK code by calling to your mobile operator's customer care.

In you attempt to enter wrong PUK code for many times, then your whole SIM card will be blocked and you cannot unlock it. Getting a duplicate SIM card is the only solution if your SIM card is blocked.

I hope this is helpful to you.
Thanks

Orange Sim Card, PUK code needed...


Hi,
As ginko correctly said above, The PUK is exclusive to your sim card, not your actual phone.
Easiest option is to obtain the PUK from Orange customer services. Call 450 from anothe Orange handset, or 07973 100450 from a landline.
Make a note of your PUK when you get it, because it will always remain the same (for that sim card)

Samsung S5230 forgot Sim Password


After you enter the password wrong 3 times, the phone will ask for a puk code, to get this puk code call your phone service provider, only the owner of the sim card will be able to obtain the code from the service provider. There is no way of getting the puk code since it is a random number generated by your network operator when the sim card made for you. if you enter the puk code wrong too many times you will have to get a new sim card as the sim card will kill itself when the code has been entered wrong 10 times.

I need the puk code for the orange network lg shine ke970


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.

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.
