Hi, I'm having trouble getting my phone unlocked. I punched in the wrong numbers 3 times, and then it says I have to unlock my PUK lock, which i don't even know what it is. So... how can i unlock...


Hi!
When you purchase a sim card usually gives you 2 codes, first one is PIN CODE and the other one is the PUK CODE. Puk code is the super-long combination of numbers written on your sim package, it should be near the phone number or the pin code. If you don't have the sim package to recover your Puk, then you should contact the customer service of your mobile network.
I hope this will help you! Have a nice day!

Phone has come up with PUK Lock on it. It needs a PUK code but to my knowledge it has never had one of these before. Turning the phone off & then on again doesn't do anything.


Its not the phone, but the sim that requires a PUK code. If you check your original sim starter pack, you would see your PUK code printed on it. I want you to know that its quite different fron the four digit pin code. Enter this puk code to unlock your sim. But if you cant find your starter pack, then I want to believe you know the number of you customer care, you could ask one or two people if you dont. Then, when you know the number, use some one else's line, but of your same network, perhaps a friend's, and call the customer care agents. Tell them your sim is requesting a PUK code which you dont have access to. Give them your phone number, and they should sort out the rest for you.
I hope this helps you.
Have a nice day.

I locked myself out of my phone and i dotn know what puk code means


Personal Unlock Key ... don't try to guess it - you only get 10 tries before you damage your telephone. But, don't take my word for it, review this short article: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Puk_code

The only place you can get help is from your Service Provider who will provide the correct number to you free of charge.

Thank you for allowing me to assist you this evening.

I dnt know my puk code... can u give me it


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 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.
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.

I have entered wrong unlocking code more than thrice in nokia 2700 classic and now my cell phone is locked pls tell me how to unlock it again?


As you have entered three wrong codes your phone is locked and now will ask for your PUK code. Three more false trials will result in blocking of SIM card forever.

My sim card is all locked up, what do I do?


Well ...bad news. PUK locked that means your friend typed 10times wrong code and now sim card is locked for good-can not be used anymore.If you are on contract then call your provider and ask for new sim. If you wanna keep your number you can ask your network provider and see if its available(in 95% NOT). Even you'll get the new sim with your number all numbers stored in old sim will be gone.

Rate me if helped. Thanks.
