Phone is asking for a PUK number what is that??? How do i unlock it again and get it working again ... Liz


Usually asked for because the phone has been reported lost or stolen, or too many attempts at cracking the entry code, or because it is on a contract and no money has been passed to the cellphone provider for a while, or you are trying to use a different provider. I wrote this on PUK Codes.

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.

Tip

PIN and PUK


Hello,

I have seen a lot of posts here about unblocking a PIN and PUK code.
Hopefully this tip will help Fixya users who experience this problem, at one point in time.

First of all, the PIN and PUK codes are not phone codes, they are SIM card codes.
The PIN (Personal Identification Number) is a code that restricts access to your phone, through the SIM card.
If you insert a SIM card that has no PIN restriction, you will not be asked for the PIN code.
When you enter the wrong PIN more than five times, it will get blocked, and ask you for the PUK code.

The PUK (Personal Unblocking Code) is used to unblock a blocked PIN.
If your PIN is blocked, use your PUK to unblock it.

Tip:

The PIN and PUK being SIM card codes, no one else can provide them to you, not even your phone manufacturer, except your network service provider.
If you dont have your PIN and PUK, call your network service provider customer care and they will provide you with both the PIN and PUK codes, for free.

I hope this tip will help you in case your PIN gets blocked.

Thank you for using Fixya,
Kenneth.

I carnt find my puk number` to access my mobilesamsung



These directions are for an AT and T phone, but other than that would be the same for any carrier.

A PUK (PIN Unlock Key) code is required to unlock SIM cards that have become locked following three successive incorrect PIN entries. If your SIM card becomes locked, you will need to get a PUK code from your phone carrier to unlock your SIM card.

You can obtain your phone's PUK code from your carrier in one of these ways:

Log in to Your account.online

Use a Technical Support Chat

Contact your carriers Customer Care

Get Your Phone's PUK Code Online

Go to the Phone/Device page.

From the My Phone/Device screen, select the Unblock SIM Card link under the My Make & Model heading.

The Unblock SIM screen will display your PUK code and will give you instructions for unblocking your SIM Card.

Once you receive your PUK code, you will need to enter it into your phone to set a new PIN code.

Note: If you enter the wrong PUK code 10 times in a row, your SIM card will be invalidated, and you will need to purchase a new SIM Card. The phone will display the following error: "PUK blocked call operator

It is asking for a PUK code after i put in the phone unlock code. Wat is the PUK code


PUK stands for Pin Unblocking Key,this PUK code is used if wrong PIN (Personal Identification Number)code is entered for several try's.It means if you enter PIN for more than 3x,the simcard will be blocked and ask you to enter the PUK code as what is explain above.

Usually this PUK code is on the package together with your simpack when you bought it. in your phone case,you need to enter the PUK code to unblock the PIN so you can access the simcard data's and features,otherwise,if you lost your PUK code, just contact your service provider and ask for your PUK code.



hope it helps...

I dont have a PUK code for my mobile and need to unlock it. how can i get the PUK code without using my credit?


you don't have to pay for your PUK, that is your pin unblocking key, we usually need this code to unblock the wring typing of pin for 3 consecutive times. PUK is provided to you free of charge, when? the first time you buy the sim, it is written in the back of your sim card holder, together with your mobile number. or written in the receipt. written there were, PIN 1 = 1234 PUK 1 = example only 12345678 PIN 2 = 1234 PUK 2 = 12345678, if you input the pin 1 code wrong 3x, then you need to type PUK 1 which can unblock your pin so you can use your phone. if lost any of that code, ask your network provider to provide you.

take care.
