    call your service network provider and tell them your sim needs for a PUK code, the operator will need some info about the sim and ask for the numbers printed at the back of the sim card.

How to I change my PIN number with telstra prepaid


If you mean passcode for the phone, it's under settings for Touch ID and Passcode. If you mean SIM PIN, that's under Phone settings. I have not set a sim pin for a while now so I'm not sure it's the same but I think needed the PUK or PUC an 8 digit code that came with my SIM. I know if you use the wrong sim pin a certain number of times, 3 maybe, then the SIM is locked and you need to use the PUK to unlock it.

Samsumg propel locked the puk code; how do i fix?


If you have entered the puk code wrong too many times you may have to get a new sim card.

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.

Need a PUK code for a telstra prepaid sim .a hand me down we dont know the password needed for telstra to supply puk. any ideas??


Pin codes and PUK codes are meant to protect the sims.

If you wrongly put PIN Codes a number of times, to really protect your sim it will ask you a puck code. (Please note every sim has its unique PUCK Code.)

Pincode/Puck codes for any sim are provided by the service provider. (In your case, Telstra an Australian SP).

You may require to contact your Service Provider Network and speak to Customer Service Representative for getting this information (PUK code).

Kindly dont apply any more codes any further or otherwise the sim may get permanently blocked and you may have to replace it.

Please rate this support if you find it useful.

Regards,
Techno-Geek.

How do I get a puk code for virgin network Australia


Puleld from Virgin Mobile UK:A PERSONAL UNLOCKING CODE (PUK) WILL GET YOU BACK INTO YOUR PHONE ONCE IT'S LOCKED YOU OUT Locked out? If you've entered your PIN incorrectly 3 times, then unfortunately your phone will be locked.
But hey, it's no problem at all - what you need to get back up and running is a PUK code. That's your phone's Personal Unlocking Code.
How to get your PUK code
Simply visit Your Account and you can pick up your PUK code there.
Need some help with your PUK code?
If you accidentally enter your PUK code 10 times, then you'll need to get a replacement SIM. We can send one out to you - just send us an email or give us a call on 0845 6000 789.

Pulled from Virgin Moble AU:
http://www.virginmobile.com.au/glossary.html


A number code that unlocks your SIM card in case the PIN is incorrectly entered three times. If the PUK is incorrectly entered ten times it permanently disables the SIM card, which will then have to be replaced. Contact us if you need to get your PUK.




I hope this helps!! :)

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.
