Tip

What to do if you phone asks for a PUK


What is a PUK?:
PUK stands for Personal/PIN Unblocking Key

Why am I being asked for a PUK:
If you have entered your PIN code incorrectly more than 3 times your SIM card will be locked for security reasons.
If the SIM card is barred by your network service provider it may also ask you for a PUK

Where do I get my PUK:
Your network service provider will be able to provide your with your PUK code. They will usually ask you to confirm the actual SIM card number when you phone so have this ready.
There are programs out there that claim to remove the restriction on your SIM card, these are entirely false and will only infect your computer/phone with Malware if downloaded so avoid at all costs.

How to get your PUK:
Contact your network service provider's customer service department and they will issue your PUK.
Pleas note if you enter the wrong PUK more than 10 times it will lock your SIM card indefinately and you will need to have another one issues from the network.

Forgot the pin


Hello,

I am assuming that you have lost the card that was holding the SIM card when you purchased it. If you can find it, it has your PIN and the PUK. The PUK is the unlock code for the SIM card, it is requested when the user enters the incorrect SIM pin 3 times. Please contact the service or network provider for the PUK, if you are unable to find the previously mentioned card. After you enter the PUK, you will be required to enter a new PIN this can be any number that you can easily remember. The customer service team at your service/network provider can easily give you your PUK after asking for a few details to confirm ownership.


Let me know how it goes.

I am getting a message PIN Code Blocked. Enter PU...


It means that the usual PIN code used to unlock the phone has been entered incorrectly too many times. To get around this you must ask the network provider for a PUK code which unblocks the SIM and allows the user to set a new PIN code.

On most phones, the PIN only applies to the SIM, not the phone, so if you fit another SIM card you can continue to use the phone but will have a new phone number.

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

AT THE MOMENT THE PHONE IS UNLOKED AN ASK FOR PIN # PUK# AN MARSTER # PLEASE HELP ME


The PIN and PUK codes are SIM card codes. These codes are provided by your phone network, they have nothin to do with the phone.
If you enter a wrong PIN and PUK more than four times, your SIM card will be blocked.
Contact your network customer care and they will provide you with the PIN and PUK codes for your SIM card. It is only your network provider who can provide you with those codes

I need the network pin to open the phone


Hi,

If you forget the SIM PIN CODE, or it asks you for PIN CODE:

PIN CODE is SIM dependenet and not phone dependent

PUK code in PIN UNLOCKING CODE, which is required when you give PIN number wrongly for 3 times,
This code is OPERATOR specific and not phone specific and you have to call you operator and get PUK if PIN is blocked...

if you provide PUK code wrongly for 7 time, you sim may become useless, then you have to buy new SIM

NOTE: You should ask your service provider,get the PUK, give the PIN 3 times wrongly and it asks for PUk,provide the PUK and set the new PIN..
