Here some additional info about it on top of wiqi's message.

Puk code, personal unlocking key. It is sim card related / spesific, 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.

Yes, the PUK code stands for Personal Unlocking Key. You can also get this code by calling your service provider, first they will confirm some details about the owner (I mean You), and then will provide you the Code. or yes if you got a new SIM your problem will also be solved.
if i was helpful, kindly do Rate! Regards.

I forgot my PUK and i dont know were to find it and i want to unlock it


Your PUK is on the card that came with the SIM. On the card or paper, was the origional PIN and PUK. When you can't find it, visit a store from your provider. Ask them for the PUK and when they don't have it, ask for a new SIM, with your phone number. They can put your number on any SIM. With the new sim comes a new PIN (you can change that later) and a new PUK.
Thhat is all.

I recently bought my son a Samsung s3350. He's managed to block it and it's asking for PUK code. The problem is we dont even have his telephone number as (being the teenager that he is)...


The PUK is the unlock code for the SIM card, not the handset, it is requested when the user enters the incorrect SIM pin 3 times. Please contact the service or network provider for the PUK. Alternatively check the card that the SIM card was attached to at point of purchase. It usually has the phone number, PIN and PUK written on it. After you enter the PUK, you will be required to enter a new PIN this can be any nummber that your son can easily remember.


Let me know how it goes.

My sim was blocked. and all my contacts are there.. please help me. i dont have my PUK code number to fix it. please..


quickest way since you dont have the PUK code is to bring it to your service provider and they will copy all your contacts over to a new sim that isnt blocked. and they may even give you the PUK code as well

A PUK code is a Pin Unlock Key code. A PUK code is required to unlock a SIM. Please contact your service provider for PUK code because only they can provide you a PUK code.

Dont know puk code,how to unlock?


Hi, the PUK code is the security code for the sim card and not the phone, now when the sim card was new you would have been given the unique PUK code written on the card the sim card was attatched to.
if you no longer have this card then the only other place you can get this code from is your service provider, all you need to do is call them and give them either the phone number of the sim card or give them the number written on the back of the sim card, they will give you this code over the phone for free.
the other option you have open to you is if you dont need to use the sim card thats asking for the PUK code then you can go out and get another sim card and this will come with its own unique PUK code.
please dont try guessing the PUK code as it can be up to 11 digits long and they are totally random so guessing is beyond the question
let me know how you get on or if you need further assistance ok
please can you rate this solution, thanks

Dont know my puk number or unlock code


Hi the PUK code is the security code for the sim card and not any code to do with the phone, all you need to do to get the PUK code is call your service provider.
your service provider wont charge for giving you the code as the code belongs to you, all you need to tell them is your phone number or if you dont know that then the number printed on the sim card, they will then provide you with the 10digit PUK code for free over the phone.
this will then allow you to access the sim card.

you do have another option open to you though, if you dont need that sim card then you can go out and get another sim card and when you get given a new sim card you will get given the unique PUK code it will be written on the card the sim card is attatched to.

let me know if you need further assistance ok.

plz rate this solution as i have a whole page of unrated posts, thanks

PUK code


The Puk number depends on the pin lock on the sim, the phone will still work with a different Sim card.

To unlock the Puk code you need to call the contact number for the service provider for your Sim. Alternatively you can unlock the PUK code at a local shop for a small fee, £10 or £20 in UK.

To unlock PUK, call the company that branded your Sim card.

For example , f you are in UK, and have lost vodafone or Orange pin, and puk code kicked in, then contact is below.


Vodafone Contact us

Vodafone UK - Contact us

use google to find contact number for your sim card fone company in your area. That is the only way to unlock PUK for free, and it always work.

if it is saying enter puk code and you do not know it,DO NOT enter any numbers or you will block your sim.Ring customer services on a pals phone,give your info and ask them for your puk code,they will give you a number which you then enter and then you can reset your password and your phone will work fine.Switch off your sim password if you dont want problem again
