Hi,

If the PUK is locked, nothing can make the SIM usable, You have to approach AT & T directly, write a letter about this consent and get an new alternate SIM card for the same number by paying some small amount..

The SIM CHIP destroys itself, when you give PUK wrongly 9 times

I turned my phone on, and I usually have a pin code. But by mistake I **** typed a bunch of numbers and pressed okay getting my code wrong. After doing this a ton of times, I used up all of my tries and...


Hi,

A PUK (PIN Unlock Key) code is required to unlock SIM card 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 only get ten chances to enter a PUK before the SIM card becomes permanently disabled.

You can also look the back of the SIM pack, the PUK code is written on it. Or call your service provider. When you enter this PUK code it will request for a new code enter code and your phone will come up.

Hi,

If you need the PUK ( Personal Unblocking Key ) for your phone, you will have to contact your mobile phone service provider.

PUK code is related to the SIM card you are using. So, kindly call the IDEA Customer care number from another IDEA mobile and they will provide you with the PUK code.

Also, entering a wrong PUK code ten times in a row disables the SIM card permanently. So, please be careful while entering the PUK code.

Hope this solves your problem. Thanks for using FixYa.

Forgot my code...


Your SIM Card is most likely blocked. When u type an incorrect pin 3 times, your pin is blocked. You then have 3 chances to type your SIM card's Pin unblocking code (PUK). If you type an incorrect PUK, your SIM card will be blocked and you will need to call your service provider.

I have a samsung u600 showing puk disabled card blocked


Hi your only option is to call your phone service provider, no it doesn't come with the phone and the phone never has its own puk code becouse the puk code is about the sim card.

if you put in another sim card the phone will work just fine, its the simcard 3 times pin code wrong puk code enabled pin blocked, call service provider to get it and entery instructions.

Let me know if you need anything else.
Thanks,
Ekse

My phone says the puk is disabled and the card is blocked


you have entered the pin code wrong 3 times now you are required to enter a puk code to reset the pin code. 

The puk code is sim card spesific it comes with the sim card when you get it or you can get it by calling your phone service provider of the sim card to get the puk code. 


if you have entered the puk code wrong too many times you will make the sim card useless and you will have to contact your phone service provider for a new sim card, it will probably cost.
