Hi everyone

Every PUK code is unique so nobody can tell you your PUK number, but i will tell you what you can do!
1) If you still have your packet that your Sim Card came in, you should find your PUK number in there, if you don't have the packet, please read bellow.

2) You must get a phone that is on the same network as your phone and call the networks Customer Care and ask them for your PUK number, they will ask you for your phone number, then they will tell you your PUK number. Once you have done this, you will be able to reset your Pin number so you will be able to go into your phone again.

Please also remember to give this solution a FixYa! rating if it helps you.

Kind regards

SOURCE: My pin code is blocked. Need Puk code. Pls help

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.

Tip & How-To about Cell Phones
Your phone is asking for a PUK code?

Is your phone asking for a PUK code. PUK = Personal Unlocking Key. Personal Unblocking Key, or PIN Unblocking Key.

This can only come from your cellphone carrier and usually the company that still owns the phone under the agreement. Sometimes it is because you have put another SIM card in it, and they own the phone and need you to use them as carrier to get the price of the phone back, or you are in default of payment, or on a Pay as You Go plan, it is over expired. I can also happen if you have entered the unlock code wrongly three times. This often happens when a phone is stolen or lost and has been found by or sold to someone else who then try and use the phone. Wikipedia A personal unblocking code (PUC), also known as a PIN unlock key (PUK), is used in 3GPP mobile phones to reset a personal identification number (PIN) that has been lost or forgotten.
Most mobile telephones offer the feature of PIN protection. After switching on the phone, if the PIN security function is active, the user is requested to enter a 4-8 digit PIN enabling the phone's non-emergency calling functions. If the wrong PIN is typed in more than three times, either the SIM card, the device, or both become locked. They can be returned to their original unlocked state by entering a PUC, provided by the service operator after verification. If the wrong PUC is entered ten times in a row, the device will become permanently blocked and unrecoverable, requiring a new SIM card. Cellular phone users are therefore advised by most providers to keep their PUC written down in a safe place separate from the device.
The PUC (PUK) is a SIM-specific code assigned and provided by the service provider.
Once you enter the PUK code, you must set a PIN. The PUK and PUK2 are used to unlock the PIN and PIN2 codes respectively if your SIM card is blocked
From Bell
The PIN unblocking key (PUK; sometimes called personal unlocking key) is a master security code for unblocking and resetting the personal identification number (PIN) for your SIM card. For added security, the PUK is unique to your SIM card. If your PIN code is active and you enter it incorrectly three times, your SIM card will be blocked. You won't be able to use your phone, except for emergency calls. You must enter your PUK into your phone to unblock the SIM card. If your SIM card becomes blocked, Contact us to get your PUK.
You may be able to do it from the website or your cellular provider. This is from Orange - T-Mobile in the UK.
Your phone can become blocked in a number of ways - one of them is if you enter your SIM card PIN number incorrectly three times in a row. To unblock your SIM card, you will need to use something called a PUK (Personal Unblocking Key).
Remember that unblocking is different to unlocking. Read more information on unlocking your device.

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.

PUK blocked


I guess is from a phone right?If your telephone asks PIN-code and you have forgotten it, you will need PUK code. PUK code is indicated on the card-certificate attached to your SIM-card. If you have lost your card-certificate, please call the network 5+ Service Center. After switching your telephone on, "Enter PIN-code" will be displayed. Enter any PIN-code. After you have entered incorrect PIN-code three times, telephone will ask your PUK-code

Dear reader, i need puk number as my sim blocked and need puk number to enter but unfortunately i lost pin and puk numbers..here is my sim number will you please send me puk number 899660186001043227


hi,

You can locate your PUK usually it is included in your sim card kit when you purchase it. if you lost it already, this is the last thing we can do. Contact your operator customer care or visit them and ask for your PUK code and they are very glad to help you. they will ask you several questions pertaining to your account to verify if you are the real owner. You can also get it on-line on most operator if they have this service at their website.

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

Don't forget to rate me OK! thanks...

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."

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 SIM card Customer Care.

regards,

John

Puk unlock


Try turn your phone on, it will ask for PIN, or PUK if the PIN is blocked.
If it doesn't ask for PIN, then your sim card is not blocked.
