Complete information :
The SIM card protects your subscription and not the phone from unauthorised users. If you change SIM cards you can still use your phone with a new SIM card. Most SIM cards are blocked at the time of purchase. If your SIM card lock is on you have to enter your PIN (Personal Identity Card) every time you turn on the phone.
If you enter the wrong password three times in a row the SIM card gets blocked. This is indicated by the message PIN Blocked To unblock this you need to enter your PUK
card (Personal Unblocking Key). Your PIN and PUK is supplied by your service provider. You can edit your PIN and select a new four to eight digit number
To unblock your SIM card:

there is no default puk code.
puk code is unique.
all sim has separate separate puk code.
you got the puk code from your customer care.
just call your customer care and tell him to give the puk no. of your sim and give them the information they want.

You may enter wrong PIN three (3) times only. After that your PIN will be blocked! To unblock, you need PUK. You can only enter wrong PUK ten (10) times. (This is as documented) After entering correct PUK, you will be asked for NEW PIN.
So, when it says "PIN blocked. Enter PUK code", you must enter the PUK. If you correctly enter the PUK, it will asked for new PIN, by asking "Enter new PIN code:". Enter anything you want as your PIN. You will be asked to enter it twice (two times).
From what I read from your post, you have done correctly, but you don't want to enter new PIN. There is no way SIM card/phone will use old PIN. The device doesn't know your PIN. So, you have to enter new PIN.

SOURCE: PUK code
The Puk number depends on the pin lock on the sim, the phone will still work with a different Sim card.
To unlock the Puk code you need to call the contact number for the service provider for your Sim. Alternatively you can unlock the PUK code at a local shop for a small fee, £10 or £20 in UK.
To unlock PUK, call the company that branded your Sim card.
For example , f you are in UK, and have lost vodafone or Orange pin, and puk code kicked in, then contact is below.
Vodafone Contact us
Vodafone UK - Contact us
use google to find contact number for your sim card fone company in your area. That is the only way to unlock PUK for free, and it always work.
