Hi
To unblock your phone you’ll need a PUK (Phone Unlocking Key) number. You can get a PUK number online by signing in or registering for Your Account at the source link
Source(s):
http://help.orange.co.uk/orangeuk/support/selfservice/index.jsp

You can get your Orange PUK number only from the Orange service provider or customer care as PUK numbers for each SIM is different just like your SIM pin code, and it is only the Orange service provider who can give you this number. You will get a PUK after calling the Orange customer care service and once you enter the PUK number in your cell phone, your SIM will be unlocked. There are some identity issues regarding the PUK number and when you are on the phone with the Orange customer service representative, you will only get your PUK number if the SIM is registered under your name.
If the SIM is not registered under your name, you will have to get the original owner of the SIM online in order to get the SIM unlocked through the PUK code. If the owner is not present or cannot come on the phone, that means the SIM cannot be unlocked and the number is lost. You can reach the Orange customer service through calling 150 on your cell phone or dial 07973 100 150 on your landline. For pre paid users, dial 450 on your cell phone or 07973 100 450 on your landline.

Thanks for contacting fixya.com

I need the puk for a orange samsug f480


Hi the PUK code is not a security code for the phone it is the security code for the sim card, now the only place you can get this from is your service provider so if your sim card is with orange then all you need to do is call orange and give them the phone number of the sim card or the number written on the sim card itself, your service provider dont charge for this service and will give you the code over the phone for free.

you do have another option if you dont need to use that sim card then you can go out and get a new sim card and put this in your phone it wont then ask for the PUK code but if it does you will get given the code as it comes written on the card the sim card was attached to.

let me know if you need further assistance ok

plz rate this solution as i have a whole page of unrated posts, thanks

Hi I have an iphone on the orange network and I have managed to lock the sim card - i can't make any calls and i now need to orange puk code to unlock it - any ideas???? I feel lost without my phone


Hi the good news is your phone isnt locked the PUK code is the security code for the sim card you have in the phone, now if you want to continue using that sim card then all you need to do is call your service provider or you can sometimes get the PUK code from their web site.
they wont charge for giving you this code all they will ask you is whats the phone number for the sim card or they will ask you for the code written on the sim card, then they will give you the code over the phone so you can use that sim card.

The other option you have is if you dont need to use that sim card then you can just get another sim card and put this in your phone then this wont ask for the code plus when you get a new sim card you get given the PUK code just in case you ever need it.

chances are you want to use the sim card you have in the phone so the first thing to do is have a look on their web site and go to the help or support section and look for the PUK code section you will need to enter the sims phone number then you should get the code.
if you cant find this on their site then just give your service provider a call and they will give you the code over the phone for free, or go in to your nearest orange shop and ask them for your PUK code and they will also give you the code for free as the code is for your sim card so it belongs to you.

once you enter this code you wont be asked for it again unless you have problems with security codes in the future, the PUK code is just a safety feature to stop anybody getting your data such as phone numbers off the sim if your phone is ever stolen, so give them a call and they will sort you out in a matter of minutes.

let me know if you need further assistance ok

My phone as a puk code block how can i get my puk code onnlie


There is no way of getting the PUK code from the Internet The PUK code is supplied with the documentation that came with the Phone Service Provider's SIM card. If you enter the wrong PUK code more than 3 times the SIM card will be locked out and you will need to purchase a new SIM card.
If you have lost the PUK code only your Phone Service Provider can give you the correct PUK code. Sorry there is no way around this problem, I'm afraid you have no choice but to contact your Phone Service Provider who supplied the SIM card.

Orange Sim Card, PUK code needed...


Hi,
As ginko correctly said above, The PUK is exclusive to your sim card, not your actual phone.
Easiest option is to obtain the PUK from Orange customer services. Call 450 from anothe Orange handset, or 07973 100450 from a landline.
Make a note of your PUK when you get it, because it will always remain the same (for that sim card)

My phone is asking for a PUK code. i'm on orange pay monthly


No need to worry at all, this code is Service dependent (SIM card).
As you described your service provider is Orange, so all you have to so is to call on 07973 100 450 (or 450 from some other Orange phone)
Ask them for your code, they will first authenticate few things and will give you the PUK Code in return.
I Hope you have a clear picture now,
Regards, Waqar.

How can i find the puk code for my orange mobile


By contacting orange. or the company who you pay your bills to.

puk code, personal unlocking key. It is sim card related / specific, if you take the sim card out from the phone, the phone will work with another sim card.

The puk comes up when the pin code has been entered wrong 3 times. To get the puk code for your sim card, you have to call the service provider of that sim card. They are the only ones who can provide you with the right puk code for that sim card.

The puk code may also have came with the documentation of the sim card, if its a prepaid card the puk code comes on the documents or on the box of the product.

if your unable to obtain the puk code, get a new sim card.

also entering the puk code wrong too many times will eventually ruin the sim card forcing you to buy or contact your service provider for a new sim card.

There are no puk code calculators or anything that we can do about it, you can buy premium assistance and you will get this same response. Theres no other solution.

You have to contact the phone service provider of that sim card or replace the sim card.

Can't help you even if you paid.

Puk codes


When you enter a wrong Pin code three times, the phone goes in lock mode, and ask you for the puk code.

The puk code was enclosed with the original sim card documentation.

If you lost it the only ways to recover the PUk code are either paying a phone shop (they will phone virgin), or calling virgin mobile customer service by yourself. They will ask your personal details, and retrieve the PUK code from database.

Lost puk code


PUK stands for Personal Unblocking Key, and it is a unique identificative code to prevent theft, or unauthorized users from using your SIM.
Even if it comes with the phone, PUK code is associated to SIM card, not to the phone.
When you input wrong SIM card pin three times , the phone will ask the PUK code.
Usually PUK is printed on a sticker inside phone box.
If you have lost your PUK code you will need to call the company that provides you the phone service when you bought the phone (eg. Vodaphone, Orange, 3, Telecom etc.).
The only alternative is going to a phone shop, they will call the phone company , get PUK and unlock your SIM.

Some phones have also an unlock code, but this is not called PUK, if phone asks for PUK you need to call phone company.
There is no way to get PUK straight from the phone.
If phone is locked with Phone Lock Code go to a local phone shop, they will connect it to a computer and get the code.
