Hi,

PIN CODE is SIM dependenet and not phone dependent

PUK code in PIN UNLOCKING CODE, which is required when you give PIN number wrongly for 3 times,
This code is OPERATOR specific and not phone specific and you have to call you operator and get PUK if PIN is blocked...

if you provide PUK code wrongly for 7 time, you sim may become useless, then you have to buy new SIM

NOTE: You should ask your service provider,get the PUK



ENJOY! RATE THIS SOLUTION

Need the puk code


When a PIN code is entered wrongly three times, the phone line will be blocked. Irrespective of the owner, it is assumed that you are not the owner of the phone line when you enter your pin wrongly.

The blocked line at this point can still be unblocked and this is where the PUK code comes in. Once you enter the PUK code, your PIN code will be reset. You can then create a ne PIN code.

To get your PUK code, if your phone is using a SIM Card, Check the SIM card Pack and you will see your PUK code there. But if you don't have a SIM card pack, you can get the PUK code from your service provider.

Call the customer care line of your service provider using another phone, request for your PUK code and it will be given to you. Note that your service provider will ask you some few questions about your line in order to be sure you are the real owner.

Note that your service provider alone is the only one that can give you your PUK code because it's only your service provider that has it.

Good luck.

What is puk code?


A PUK (PIN Unlock Key) code is required to unlock SIM cards that have become locked following three successive incorrect PIN entries. If your SIM card becomes locked, you will need to get a PUK code from your service provider to unlock your SIM card.

You can obtain your phone's PUK code from your local operator by calling customer care.

Once you receive your PUK code, you will need to enter it into your phone to set a new PIN code.

Note: If you enter the wrong PUK code 10 times in a row, your SIM card will be invalidated, and you will need to purchase a new SIM Card. The phone will display the following error: "PUK blocked call operator."

Hope that's help you...

Its asking me for a puk code


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.

I can't figure out the puk code for a Samsung J700SL. Anybody got any ideas??


Hello friend,
The PUK code is the PIN unlocking Code. It is not related to the Handset and is maintained by the Service provider of your SIM card. Kindly call your service provider and give them your mobile number they will give you a code to unlock pin and you can create a new PIN for your SIM. Do not enter wrong PUK more than 10 times or your sim card will be corrupted and you will have to replace the card.

Nokia 1680. When I turn it on I get the message "Final Attempt. Enter PIN code" What do I do? I don't want to try guessing if this is the final attempt allowed. Thanx Peter


It is asking for the pin code of your sim card, which is different for all service provider. If you enter 1 more wrong pin the sim will be blocked and it will ask for a PUK code. you can get the PUK code by calling your service provider which will help you to create a new pin.

I've tired to set the PIN code for my Nokia 6085 phone but I cannot. I've entered the PUK code but now it says, "Enter new PIN code:" What do I do? I've entered a code I wanted and other ones on my...


HOLD ON!
You may enter wrong PIN three (3) times only. After that your PIN will be blocked! To unblock, you need PUK. You can only enter wrong PUK ten (10) times. (This is as documented) After entering correct PUK, you will be asked for NEW PIN.

So, when it says "PIN blocked. Enter PUK code", you must enter the PUK. If you correctly enter the PUK, it will asked for new PIN, by asking "Enter new PIN code:". Enter anything you want as your PIN. You will be asked to enter it twice (two times).
From what I read from your post, you have done correctly, but you don't want to enter new PIN. There is no way SIM card/phone will use old PIN. The device doesn't know your PIN. So, you have to enter new PIN.
