You can have the PUC code in the sim card pack that you bought. It is written at the top of the card.

You can also avail customer care services, call them and they will tell you your PUC code after confirming registration details like your address etc.

Puknumber wrong on back of my phone


You are confused Mona. The number on the back of your phone is an IMEI number, it is the identification number of your phone. A PUK Code is something completely different and is a lock put on the phone by the carrier for a number of reasons, number 1 is the phone has been reported stolen, number 2 is default of payment, number 3 is someone trying the consumer access code put on by the owner more that 3 times. Only the cellular carrier of that phone can give you the PUK Code.

This explains in full.

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.

Is the unblocking code same as the puk code


Thanks for visiting FixYa!

There are several security codes used on cell phones. I'll try to define each:

1) Limited access code: This is a pre-set code that limits the phone's use to dialing or receiving only pre-programmed numbers. For example, an employer gives a company phone to a delivery guy which will only make calls to -and receive calls from - the office.

2) Security codes:

a) Software security unlock code: Most phones are locked to accept only apps (software) from approved venders. This code is used to unlock the phone so it will download and install third-party applications.

b) User Security Codes (or Blocking codes) : This code unlocks the phone so it can be used to make and receive calls. Without this code the phone is 'blocked' from making or receiving calls.

PUC Code: This code is required when a security code (or block code) has been entered incorrectly too many times. (For example: Someone finds a lost phone which has requires a security code to use the phone, and attempts to guess the code several times.) Once this happens, the phone becomes locked to where the security code can no longer be guessed. A PUC code must now be entered. And, the only way to obtain the PUC Code is directly from the cell phone company that provides service to the phone. (A PUC Code is sometimes referred to as a Master Unlock Code.) Without it, the phone can never make calls again. Attempting to guess the PUC code 10 times can/will damage the phone and the SIM card if the phone has one.

SIM Unlock: Sim Unlock, or Network Unlock is a code which when entered on the phone allows the phone to be used with different cell phone companies.
