Hi, if you have had the phone and sim card from new then the PUK code is usually written on the card that the sim card was attatched to so if you still have this then look on their for the PUK code if you dont have this then dont worry just read on.

The PUK code is the security code for the sim card and if you get it wrong more than 5 times then this would block the sim card and it cant be unlocked.
To get your PUK code for that sim card all you need to do is contact your service provider and ask them for your PUK code they will give you this for free over the phone all you need to do is give them the sim cards phone number and also your details they will then give you the correct PUK code for that sim card.

Every single sim card maid has its own unique PUK code so the code they give you will only work with that sim card you gave the phone number for.

You could also try going to your service provides web site as you can usually get the PUK code off their web site.

Let me know how you get on or if you need further assistance ok

I need to enter an orange puk code for an orange phone i had 3 years ago. as my current phone is being repaired, I cannot remeber my Orange mobile number, how do i get a puk code?


Hi,

PUK code and PIN Code:

Please dont try more than 3 times.If you try more than 3 times the Sim will get locked.And it will ask for PIN code.Both these PUK and PIN code can be given only by the network service provider. Please call the network service provider of your mobile.And ask him to provide the PUK code or PIN code.He will ask you some basic details like name,date of birth for his verification.And he will provide you the PUK and PIN code.This is done for free of cost.

Please do rate the solution if the issue is resolved or post a comment for further assistance.


Thank you for using fixya have a nice day:-)

I have locked my phone while putting a pin number in and it is coming up with enter puk code.


You need to contact your network provider who should be able to give you the PUK code. So say its Orange or whoever-phone them on your landline and give them your details and mobile no and they will give you instructions and PUK code to unlock it.
