Try to search the net for downloadable cellphone unlocking softwares. if you dont find any, try bringing it to a cellphone technician who might have softwares like that, thus will be able to unlock your phone. worst case scenario, you would have to change your sim card and get a new one.

I cannot remember my AT&T LG3 PUK


No one can remember a PUK Code, it can only come from your cellphone carrier as they have blocked it. If you have forgotten the PUK Code they just gave you, then you will need to contact them again.

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.

My phone is locked as i cannot remember the pin code is there a way to unlock it


first ask your service provider for the PUK numbe. after getting the PUK number, go to security settings and choose change PIN, it will ask for old PIN number, try a random number and then it will show, sim blocked, please insert PUK number.
insert the PUK you got from your operator and then you will be able to change your PIN and hence remove it.

Phone comes up with - PIN blocked.Enter PUK code.I think this happened because I tried to enter PIN code but could not remember it .


PUK stands for Personal Unblocking Key. This is a unique eight digit code specific to your SIM card. This is required when the PIN number to unlock your mobile phone is entered incorrectly 3 times. You are then given 10 attempts to enter your PUK code. If an incorrect PUK code is entered after the 10th attempt, you will block your SIM card permanently and will require a new SIM card from your mobile phone provider.
PUK codes can be obtained through the following ways -
The PUK code is in your SIM card documentation Starter Pack.
Contact your mobile phone provider.

How do u enter a puk code in a w550i?


If a PUK is required, your W550i will display the message "pin blocked"
This is when you enter your PUK and then press ok.
Then choose a new pin (4 to 8 digits) and repeat it when prompted.
Remember your new pin this time ;-) lol
