Puk=personal unlock key. it is written on the card the sim card comes with when new.
if you don't have the card, you have to phone your network provider, from another phone if yours is locked

SOURCE: puk blocked!

hi!

Here's what it means:

PIN Unblocking Key (PUK) - If a GSM or GAIT subscriber enters the wrong PIN three times in a row, then the wireless mobile phone is locked until the correct PUK is entered.

What to do:

Call ATT and ask for the PUK code. You will need to verify the account when you call, so if you do have the info (last 4 of the SSN on the acct or the password)

Other option is to bring that to a cellphone repair shop and have it hack on its PUK .

Hope this helps... Don't forget your rating.

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.

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.

I have an LG CU500. My screen says PUK LOCKED. I cannot access my phone or anything on it what do I do?


Hi,

The easiest way to get the PUK code is to call your service provider, such as T-Mobile or Verizon. They need to verify your cell phone number and your IMEI number and they will provide you with the PUK code.

Hope this helps,
Joe

UNBLOCK MY PUK CODE


The only way to get the PUK code is to call the service provider(not the phone maker) and give them the number that is on the sim card,They will give you the code needed to unlock it.So just have the sim card in hand to read off the number when they ask.
