If PIN code was set on a mobile phone and the PIN code was entered incorrectly 3 times in succession, the SIM card will be blocked. In this situation, customer will need the PUK code to unblock the SIM card. The phone will be disabled at this point hence the error message you see. You need to get in touch with the customer services of your network provider.. You will have to use a different phone to reach Customer Care. The puk code is unique to each sim card they will give you the code over the phone and you enter it in the mobile then select a new pin (which you may want to remember). Note: Check your phone's user manual. Sometimes, default PUK are given. Also when contacting customer care, be ready to answer questions related to your account. This is basic security check and is a breeze to answer if you are the account holder.

My phone says" PIN blocked,


Hello and Welcome to FixYa!

Just relax, PINs and PUK codes are your right to know. They are unique for every connection. You can never get it from anywhere in the world except the Operators.

All you have to do is to call the service providers like T-mobile, Orange from landline or other cellphone and ask for the PIN and PUK agaisn that connection (SIM card). They will first authenticate your ownership and will give you your code in return.


I hope you will have a clear picture now.

Concerned, Nooh

You MUST call your cellular service provider's Customer Service Dept. to have them unlock the phone. You'll need to be able to verify that you are the person in whose name the account is in and the passcode for the account.

I hv a nokia e63 phone with a vodafone sim card. at first it asked for the pin code, which i typed wrong twice. it next told me that my pin code was blocked and to enter the PUK code. after several...


Hi,
Please contact vodafone customer care to get your PUK code. If you have tried with wrong PUK code for more than 10 times, then your SIM card may get blocked completely and getting a duplicate SIM card is the solution in such case.

I hope this is useful for you
Thanks

Pin blocked


You need to get a PUK, PUKs, or personal unblocking keys, are used to unblock a mobile phone which becomes blocked. Mobile phones may become blocked when a PIN (personal identification number) is entered incorrectly on three consecutive occasions. In some instances, the phone may become blocked, which requires a PUK to unblock it, and in other instances, the SIM (Subscriber Identity Module) card itself becomes blocked and again will require a PUK to unblock it. Mobile phones are also blocked when they are reported stolen and if there is an outstanding payment on the account. It is important to differentiate between unblocking phones (using a PUK) and unlocking mobile phones (using another type of code). More information on unlocking phones will be available here in the very near future. NOTE: It is a criminal offence for anyone to attempt to unblock a mobile phone, other than the network provider who put the block on the phone. If your phone has become blocked by mistake, for example you have entered the PIN incorrectly on three consecutive occasions, then you need to contact the mobile phone network operator with your details. To explain a little more, specific to your mobile phone network, use the links above to navigate your way to the specific PUK details for your mobile phone network operator.

Kindly call the customer care if you can remember your pin or simply press any number until your phone ask for the puk number, if you have the puk number,you can put that to reset or remove your pin but if you don't have or know your puk number, it is better that you call the customer care with another phone to give the details of phone number so that they can help you, calling customer care is free.
