My access code no longer opens the phone.PUK is requested.What is PUK?


Few people use PIN locking system to lock their phone to avoid un-authorised access. Though this is a good option, it pisses you off sometime. Three wrong entry of PIN code will result in SIM blocking. Once SIM gets blocked, phone starts asking PUK code to enter. If you again enter wrong code for three times, SIM gets completely blocked. You have to walk into your service provider outlet to get a replacement SIM card.
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. Airtel has a easier way of getting PUK code. For getting PUK code of a Airtel number, send PUKPhoneNumber to toll free number 121. You can make use of any other Airtel number to send this message since your SIM might have been blocked already.
If the above method doesn't works or your service provider is not Airtel, 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.

Hi i have a lg gu295 n it says puk lock.


Hello,

If your phone comes up with the message PUK lock, then it means someone must have entered a wrong pin code about 3 time which made the sim self lock itself.

The PUK code is known as your PERSONAL UNBLOCKING KEY, It mostly is found on the starter pack of your sim card. When you purchased your sim card, it came in a pack consisting of your user manual, then a card where the sim was broken out from, then a case where they are all packed in. On the card where the sim card was broken from, there are some numbers on it, like your mobile/sim number, then your pin code, then a 8 digit code which is the PUK code, then your bar code at the bottom of the card.

It is the 8 digit code that is your PUk code, that is what you should enter on the phone, it will prompt you to enter a new pin code, once you enter it, it will ask you to reenter it, after reentering it, then the sim card will be unblocked.

Hope this helps.
Take care

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. Airtel has a easier way of getting PUK code. For getting PUK code of a Airtel number, send PUK<space>PhoneNumber to toll free number 121. You can make use of any other Airtel number to send this message since your SIM might have been blocked already.
