I have a Straight talk Samsung T401G phone and its asking about a PUK number what the **** is that?


It means that you (or somebody) has tried to guess the PIN code for your SIM and got it wrong 3 times.
You now need to enter the PUK (or Personal Unblocking Key) to access the SIM card and use the phone.
If you dont know your PUK, you can get it from your network/service provide/carrier (for free)
Do not try and guess the PUK.
If you enter PUK incorrectly 10 times, the your SIM card will become permanently blocked, and you will need to buy a new one.

Ive accedentily blocked my phone and its asking me for a puk code by the o2 website isnt working ?


Hi the PUK code is the security code for the sim card and not the phone you can only get the PUK code for the sim card by ringing your service provider you need to give them the sim cards number and they will then give you the code for free over the phone.

if you have entered the code wrong more than 5 times then the chances are the sim card is now blocked and can no longer be used.

you can put a new sim card in and this wont ask for the PUK code, how ever if the sim card is blocked you will lose all the info stored on the sim card such as numbers,texts etc so make sure you dont try guessing the PUK code as its totally random code and the only way of getting this is by calling your service provider

I forgot my puk code and my phone is locked because i tried the wrong sim code


To get a PUK for your SIM you have to call the Service provider of your SIM. Please do not try to Guess the PUK. If you Enter Wrong PUK for 10 times your SIM will get corrupt and you cannot use it further. Simply call your SIM card customer care and request the PUK for you number. They will provide it without any charge.

Note: There is no other way to get a PUK.

My cell phone is asking me for a PUK codwe


Do not worry about anything. You can easily obtain the PUK code without any charge, from your service provider by calling on Customer care number.
PUK is PIN Unlocking Code. When you enter a wrong PIN for 3 times the SIM gets locked and asks for a PUK code. Once you get the PUK code from your service provider you can create a new PIN for the SIM card.

Please note that if you Enter a Wrong PUK 10 times your SIM card will be corrupt and you will not be able to use it. So please do not try to guess the PUK.
PUK code cannot be generated by any software. Only your service provide can give you the PUK code for your SIM.

Forgot my pin


if you write the pin wrong atleast 3 times the puk code prompt will come up instead, don't guess the puk code, its going to make the sim card useless if you guess two many times.

to get the puk code call your service provier. with the puk code you can set a new pin code and the sim card will work normally.

Need puk


SIM pin code:
This is a pin code that locks the sim card until you enter the correct code. This protects your account, even
if your sim is put into another handset. To reset it, you need the PUK code:
Pin Unlock Code (PUK)
If you miss key (or forget) your SIM pin code, and enter the wrong one 3-5 times in a row, the SIM will lock up, and you’ll need to enter the PUK unlock code to release it. You should ask your Network Service Provider for this code when you need it. Don’t try to guess it, because after a few wrong guesses, the SIM card will be permanently disabled.

PUK code


You should have a PUK number, on the plastic card where your sim card was. If you've lost it:
Pin Unlock Code (PUK)
If you miss key (or forget) your SIM pin code, and enter the wrong one 3-5 times in a row, the SIM will lock up, and you’ll need to enter the PUK unlock code to release it. You should ask your Network Service Provider for this code when you need it. Don’t try to guess it, because after a few wrong guesses, the SIM card will be permanently disabled.
