You can't do it any other way. The code is 128 bit encrypted at firmware level, so good luck with that.

I wrote two sets of tips, this is the second one for disbelievers such as yourself :>)

Tip & How-To about Cell Phones
So your phone asks for a PUK Code and you ask if there is another way? So you read my TIP on PUK Codes and you still wonder if there is another way to defeat a PUK Code. Let me explain in a non technical way with no links. The lock has been put on by the cellular provider at firmware level and only they have the key to the encryption lock that locked it.

They have done this because they own the phone on an undischarged contract. For instance, you or 'they' (the person who had it before it was lost or stolen) took a 2 year plan and there is a still a year to run. Perhaps you are trying to use a different cellular provider on their phone, perhaps Pay As You Go. They know this in various ways, one is that you aren't paying them any money on a monthly basis. So they send a signal (you have to switch it on) to the IMEI number of that phone and lock it

Why did they put the PUK lock on it?

See above, you are trying to use another company, they aren't getting income.

Perhaps you haven't paid your bill for a couple of months and when they try to contact you, you ignore them.

The phone you have is reported stolen and the cellular company are not going to let you use their phone. They want it back or no one is going to use it!

There is another scenario. You have put a consumer lock code into it and stupidly forgot what the code is? How can you forget a code you are using 20 times a day to unlock the phone to use it though? Or perhaps of your nice mates, or baby brother have been playing with it and they have been trying to get into it? After 10 wrong tries, software automatically locks it with a PUK Code. This is to protect you and your data, so a good thing right, just a little inconvenient?

When you phone the cellular company, they will ask you some security questions to make sure you are the owner of their phone as reflected in their records. Expect to answer Name and Address, Date of Birth, e-mail Address, and a question related to a recent call. When they are satisfied they will give you the PUK Code which is between 6 and 8 digits.

Here is the long explanation again, read it, it took me a while to write it as one of my TIPS. There is no other way apart from asking the cellular carrier that the contract of THAT phone is registered with. This has cut 'phone theft to order', and 'phone muggings' to virtually zero. If you have purchased a stolen phone, give it back and get your money back, otherwise you are the proud owner of a paperweight.

Please call the network service provider of your mobile.And ask him to provide the PUK code or PIN code.He will ask you some basic details like name,date of birth for his verification.And he will provide you the PUK and PIN code.This is done for free of cost.

I dont know what my puk code is and my phones not redgisterd


No Sir, the PUK code is only under the authority of your service providers.
The only way is to contact the Service providers.
They will first authenticate some info regarding the owner, which should be you, then they will tell you the PUK.

My lg shine keeps telling me to put in a puk code but i dont know the puk is on my phone


HI,

PUK means "personal unlocking key" .

The PUK code is asked if you enter a wrong pin 3 times.

You need to call your phone service company, they can retrieve the puk code from a database
for free.

In your case you need to contact your SIM card phone provider technical support to unlock the SIM.


The PIN and PUK are related to the SIM card, not to the phone.

If you replace the SIM card with a different one, then the phone should not ask for the PUK anymore.


thank you,

PUK code


The puk code is provided along with your pin code from your network provider, and depends on your sim card. The reason you are asked for this is probably that you have entered wrong pin more than 3 times. The puk can be entered 4to 8 times before it completly blocks your SIM.

Contanct customers service at your provider.



please rate my solution.
