Hello,

in order to unlock your PIN you need the PUK (Pin Unlock Key).
This information can only be provide by your carrier.

If this is a card you bought with the phone then the PUK code should be in the document where you initially got your PIN from.

If it was a bundle Phone Sim Card then there is also a chance to be on a sticker outside the telephones original box.

However the simplest way is to call your carrier, they will give you the code right away.

Hope it helped.

You should have a pin number, if you don't then I suggest calling your phone company, maybe they can send you the pin number.

PUKs, or personal unblocking keys, are used to unblock a mobile phone which becomes blocked. Mobile phones may become blocked when a PIN (personal identification number) is entered incorrectly on three consecutive occasions. In some instances, the phone may become blocked, which requires a PUK to unblock it, and in other instances, the SIM (Subscriber Identity Module) card itself becomes blocked and again will require a PUK to unblock it. Mobile phones are also blocked when they are reported stolen and if there is an outstanding payment on the account. It is important to differentiate between unblocking phones (using a PUK) and unlocking mobile phones (using another type of code). NOTE: It is a criminal offence for anyone to attempt to unblock a mobile phone, other than the network provider who put the block on the phone. If your phone has become blocked by mistake, for example you have entered the PIN incorrectly on three consecutive occasions, then you need to contact the mobile phone network operator with your details. To explain a little more, specific to your mobile phone network, You need to go to your Service providers, web site & navigate your way to the specific PUK details for your mobile phone network operator. Usually you have to Register your phone to get a PUK code.

Tip

PIN and PUK


Hello,

I have seen a lot of posts here about unblocking a PIN and PUK code.
Hopefully this tip will help Fixya users who experience this problem, at one point in time.

First of all, the PIN and PUK codes are not phone codes, they are SIM card codes.
The PIN (Personal Identification Number) is a code that restricts access to your phone, through the SIM card.
If you insert a SIM card that has no PIN restriction, you will not be asked for the PIN code.
When you enter the wrong PIN more than five times, it will get blocked, and ask you for the PUK code.

The PUK (Personal Unblocking Code) is used to unblock a blocked PIN.
If your PIN is blocked, use your PUK to unblock it.

Tip:

The PIN and PUK being SIM card codes, no one else can provide them to you, not even your phone manufacturer, except your network service provider.
If you dont have your PIN and PUK, call your network service provider customer care and they will provide you with both the PIN and PUK codes, for free.

I hope this tip will help you in case your PIN gets blocked.

Thank you for using Fixya,
Kenneth.

My probem on my phone is that it has a puk block and i dont know how to fix it please help. :$


PUK, stands for Personal Unblocking Key. It is usually assigned to your mobile number by your operators. If you entered your PIN code in error more than 3 times, the line would be blocked, and reqiures a PUK code to unblock it. This code must not be entered in error more than 10 times, or else your sim would be permanently blocked and damaged, requiring absolute replacement.
Normally the PUK is written on your original sim certificate. But if you cant find it, use another line, of your same network, call your operators, and ask for your PUK. Alternatively, you could let them know your line is blocked, and let them guide you through the steps of unblocking it.

Hope that was helpful?
Have a nice day.

I blocked my phone and dont know how to unblock the PUK code


Hello,

A PUK code is used to unblock your PIN incase a wrong PIN was wrongly entered five times, leading to your SIM card getting blocked.

Only your network service provider can provide you with a PIN and PUK for your SIM card.

Contact your network customer care service center and they will provide you with a PUK and PIN for free.

Thank you for using Fixya,

This PUK thing seems to happen a lot.. have a look at this. PUKs, or personal unblocking keys, are used to unblock a mobile phone which becomes blocked.

Mobile phones are also blocked when they are reported stolen and if there is an outstanding payment on the account. It is important to differentiate between unblocking phones (using a PUK) and unlocking mobile phones (using another type of code). More information on unlocking phones will be available here in the very near future. NOTE: It is a criminal offence for anyone to attempt to unblock a mobile phone, other than the network provider who put the block on the phone.
