With your sim came a pin code (you could change that) and a PUK. After you entered a wrong pin in 3 times, the phone is locked. You than use the PUK to reset the PIN.
The puk cam on the came card or paper you initial pin came. (often the card you broke out the SIM)
When you can't find the PUK, ask your provider. And if he can't give a PIK, ask for a new sim they should put your phone on the new sim. Then you have a new pin and a new PUK. Keep the PUK on a safe place, so you don't need the help from your provider next time the pin is entered wrong.

SOURCE: puk code

you have entered the pin code wrong 3 times now you are required to enter a puk code to reset the pin code.

The puk code is sim card spesific it comes with the sim card when you get it or you can get it by calling your phone service provider of the sim card to get the puk code.


if you have entered the puk code wrong too many times you will make the sim card useless and you will have to contact your phone service provider for a new sim card, it will probably cost.

My sim is blocked only says puk blocked contact operator so wt should i do. so plz suggest me any idea


if your phone is asking for the PUK code then this is the code for the sim card if it lets you enter a code then all you need to do is contact your service provider and give ask them for the PUK code, they will give you this for free over the phone.

if how ever you have entered the PUK code wrong a certain amount of times then this will block the sim card and it will mean that this sim card can no longer be used, so if your phone is asking for the PUK code then call your service provider and ask them for the code, this will then allow you to use that sim card.

if the PUK code is blocked and can no longer be used then your only other option would be to get another sim card for the phone that is for the network your phone can use if the sim card thats asking for the PUK code is say from vodafone then you need to get another vodafone sim card that is unless you phone has been duel banded and can use any network.

when you get a new sim card you should get the PUK code for that sim card so if you do go for a new sim card then keep this number handy in case you ever need the PUK code again.

The PUK code is assigned to every single sim cad made and every single sim card has its own unique code that can only be found through your service provider so if they give you the PUK code for the sim card thats asking then remember this code will only work with that sim card and no other.

from what i can remember you get 10 chances of getting the PUK right before the sim card gets locked and once the seim card is locked it can never be unlocked so its not wort trying to guess the code as its a random 8 or 11 digit number so guessing the correct code would be harder than winning the lottery.
