Typically when a phone is asking for a PUK code it means you have tried to edit or set the secuirty pin code. Unfortunately these codes are already predefined by the sim card and the service provider. It gives you the sensation that you can set or change the code but you cannot. You get 3 attempts to enter the correct code after which the phone asks for a PUK code. When it asks for the PUK you also get three tries to undo it. Again PUK codes are predefined by the sim card and the service provider. If you call your service providers technical support number or customer service number they can provide you with the PUK or the PIN code.

>>>> Once the PUK has been entered in wrong 3 times the sim card is shot and deactivated. At this point you will need to get a new sim card to get your phone up and running again. If you have numbers stored to your sim card and not to your phone you will have lost them.

your phone will prompt you to enter the PUK if you entered the wrong pin more than thrice, what you need to do is to call or contact your service provider and ask for your PUK, after you get it from your service provider, turn your phone on again and enter the PUK, your phone should be working properly after that

I turned on my phone and it said put in PUK. Well i entered it and it said it was wrong so i kept trying and now my simcard is blocked. what do i do?


Hi
PUK code is called as PERSONNAL UNBLOCKING KEY.
Your phone will ask for PUK code when you entered the PIN code wrongly several times depending upon the mobile make. The mobile asks for PUK code so that unauthorized persons do not use your mobile for wrong cause.
To get PUK code please contact your service provider through phone or go directly to their office. They will provide you the PUK code for your mobile. The PUK code for mobile phone.so that you can open your phone. When you planning to call your service provider you cannot use your mobile as it is fully locked. Please use some other mobile with same network to call your service provider.
While you get the PUK code ,the service provider customer care officer will ask for your personal details to check whether the mobile belongs to you only. If they are satisfied with your answers they will provide with the PUK code
DONOT enter the PUK code several times wrongly,It will block your sim card permanently.
This PUK code is FREE. You no need to pay any sum to get the PUK code
Thank You.

IVE FAILED 10 TIMES TO PUT THE PUK CODE AND NOW IT SAYS TO SIM UNAVAILABLE PLEASE CONTACT SERVICE ROVIDER NO CLUE WHAT TO DO AND IM ATT


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.

Your rating is highly appreciated on this matter.

thank you,

Kids played with phone and now says phone lock


if it displays a phone lock, it will either say enter PIN code, enter PUK code, or it will say SIM unavailable please contact service provider. if it says that, you're outta luck. you gotta go to the nearest at&t store and ask for a new SIM card in your name. you might lose some numbers but hang in there! =)
