PUk means the phone is locked to a network, take this to a phone shop, alternatively you can obtain a sim from the same phone company generally they don't charge you. Last and not least phone your mobile phone provider they will provide you with a PUk number

Your PUK code is found on the card that held your sim card. This helps to identify your SIM card to your Personal Unlock Key. It is hoped you kept all of this information. If you didn't keep it, you MAY be bale to contact your carrier and give them the SIM card number and they should be able to pull it up from there.

Hope this helps.

I've got a ZTE straight talk phone and my PUK code has showed up and should have 8 numbers or more please help


Hi Leslie, If you've locked your phone through entering an incorrect pin number 3 times then you need a Puk code, Ring your service provider and they will give you the FREE Puk code.....
If you lock your phone again some time in the future and you're still with the same service provider you can use that same Puk code.. CHEERS..

How to unlock straight talk lg optimus logic cell phone puk lock


PUK Code
PUK stands for Personal Unblocking Key. This is a unique eight-digit code specific to your SIM card. This is required when the PIN number to unlock your mobile phone is entered incorrectly 3 times. You are then given 10 attempts to enter your PUK code. If an incorrect PUK code is entered after the 10th attempt, you will block your SIM card permanently and will require a new SIM card from your mobile phone provider.
PUK codes can be obtained through the following ways - The PUK code is in your SIM card documentation Starter Pack. If you do not have this then - Please contact your phone service provider.
Your cell phone service provider can give you the PUK code once you give them your account details and they have confirmed your identity. For details to obtain the PUK code for the SIM card, please click on this link and follow my instructions.

I have a straight talk nokia e71 and i was messing with the pin because ive never figured out the code that the phone came with i tried 9999 0000 and the last four digits of my number and then it said pin...


You will have to call straight talk. The PUK means your sim card has been locked. You can try 000000 or 111111 for PUK it will sometimes work. If not like I said call Straight Talk which is owned by Tracphone. They will help you as I have had to do it several times for customers over the years. You may have to call back more than once to get a different tech because not all of the techs for Straight Talk are well trained. Overall they have always been descent with me.
