Puk code is being asked for


Hello, If you're being asked to enter a PUK, you will need to contact your network operator to get your sim card unlocked. This is for security reasons. Note that only your mobile phone network operator can legally provide you with a PUK code to unlock your SIM card. Thank you for using Fixya

Tip

What is PUK code. How to get this?


A Pin Unlock Code (PUC) or Pin Unlock Key (PUK) is used in GSM mobile phones and some smartcards to unblock a blocked SIM card.
The basic of PUK code is,
  • SIM cards have their own security
  • on startup SIM cards ask for PIN code (4 digit)
  • If user enters it correctly then its accessible
  • If user enters it incorrectly 3 times (in some 7 times) PIN code is blocked. To stop brute force attempt.
  • Blocked PIN code is unlocked through PUC (Pin Unlock Code) or alternatively called PUK Pin Unlock Key which is 8 digit.
  • If PUK is entered correctly user sets new PIN code and SIM is accessible.
  • If PUK is entered incorrectly 3 times, then SIM is no longer usable or accessible and any data in it is lost.
  • Sim card security is managed by their providers which are usually network companies like vodafone, 3G, Orange and Virgin or T mobile etc... (Whatever is yours like U-Fone, Warid etc....)
  • NO ONE else can give PUK code. YOU HAVE TO ASK YOUR SERVICE PROVIDER/NETWORK for PUK.

I am a user of Reliance CDMA , the SIM has been locked and its asking for the PUK Code.. What is the PUK Code?


A PUK code is a "Pin unlock code" it is used in mobile phones. This code unlocks the SIM card to allow access to your mobile phone. If you enter this code incorrectly several times, then the SIM card will be locked permanently and you will need to purchase another SIM card from your mobile phone provider.
The PUK code is with the documentation that came with your SIM card, if you no longer have the documentation, then you need to contact your phone service provider and ask them for the PUK code.

I need a puk code for my LG Neon


One way is by going to your AT&T and tell them to unlock your LG Neon and when they do ask them if they can reset it so you wont have any more problems with the PUK code.

I need the puk code for the orange network lg shine ke970


The PUK code is a code associated with the SIM card and not with the phone.

You have only two ways to get rid of the PUK code. Either you replace the SIM card , or you call phone provider that issued the sim cadr (eg. At&T, Virgin, Tmobile , Vodafone, Telecom etc.)

PUK means "personal unlocking key" .

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

You need to call the phone company that released the SIM card, they can retrieve the PUK code from a database for free.

In your case you need to contact your SIM card 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 will not ask for the PUK anymore.
