the following codes are provided by the network operator: -pin code-puk code
both of these codes are provided when you purchase a sim card and are usually written on the sim holder or on the provided booklet. if u have the puk code, then u can enter a wrong pin multiple time and then the sim card will ask you for the puk code which then u can use to unlock the sim. if u lost both the sim and puk, then the only way is to contact the network operator to give you a new sim card. hope this helps
If you forgot your PIN [which means if you entered your PIN code
incorrectly 3 times], you will have to enter your PUK code (PIN
unblocking key). The PUK code is found at your SIM card pack if you
brought yours. After you entered your PUK code correctly, you will be
able to reset your PIN code.
Just be aware: If you entered your PIN code incorrectly 3 times, the
message says 'SIM card blocked' and you will have to enter your PUK
code. If you entered your PUK code incorrectly 10 times, then the
message says 'SIM card rejected'.
If your SIM card is rejected, you will have to buy a replacement SIM on your phone store.
If the problem is your phone all you need to do is visit the network provided by your phone. You need to get the unlock code for your phone. What is the model of your phone if you don't mind. So that I can help you get the site on how to unlock code.
If you enter the PIN code three times incorrectly one message will be shown "ENTER PUK" Then if you again enter the puk 10 times incorrectly"SIM REJECTED" After these your sim-card will be completely damage. Therefore, just throw away the old Sim and get new one. Thanks..
SIM pin code: This is a pin code that locks the sim card until you enter the correct code. This protects your account, even if your sim is put into another handset. To reset it, you need the PUK code: Pin Unlock Code (PUK) If you miss key (or forget) your SIM pin code, and enter the wrong one 3-5 times in a row, the SIM will lock up, and you’ll need to enter the PUK unlock code to release it. You should ask your Network Service Provider for this code when you need it. Don’t try to guess it, because after a few wrong guesses, the SIM card will be permanently disabled. Phone Security Code: This locks the handset, as opposed to the sim card. You can also set some handsets to only accept a “new” sim if the phone security code is entered. To reset it, you need the Master code code: Master Reset Code
Sometimes known as the Master Code, this allows you to unlock a handset if you have entered the Security Code wrongly too many times. Which is the one that you want? The default security code for Nokia is 12345
