SIM card have their own security system. First you're asked PIN code, if you enter correctly then its ok but if you enter it incorrectly 3 times then it ask you for PUK code and if you enter 3 times or some times 7 times wrong then your sim card becomes disabled and unusable.
Now you have to get a duplicate SIM from your service provider.

I worked at ATT for 3yrs. Once you've entered the wrong PUK code 10X, your sim card is permanently disabled. You have to purchase another one

PUK is Personal Unblocking Code. You can't get it here. Every sim has a different PUK code for it. Your mobile operator may help you in this problem. Contact them.

SOURCE: UNBLOCK MY PUK CODE

Hi everyone

Every PUK code is unique so nobody can tell you your PUK number, but i will tell you what you can do!
1) If you still have your packet that your Sim Card came in, you should find your PUK number in there, if you don't have the packet, please read bellow.

2) You must get a phone that is on the same network as your phone and call the networks Customer Care and ask them for your PUK number, they will ask you for your phone number, then they will tell you your PUK number. Once you have done this, you will be able to reset your Pin number so you will be able to go into your phone again.

Please also remember to give this solution a FixYa! rating if it helps you.

Kind regards

My phone is blocked its asking puk code.plz can u help me...........


Hi
PUK code is called as PERSONNAL UNBLOCKING KEY.
Your phone will ask for PUK code when you entered the PIN code wrongly several times depending upon the mobile make. The mobile asks for PUK code so that unauthorized persons do not use your mobile for wrong cause.
To get PUK code please contact your service provider through phone or go directly to their office. They will provide you the PUK code for your mobile. The PUK code for mobile phone.so that you can open your phone. When you planning to call your service provider you cannot use your mobile as it is fully locked. Please use some other mobile with same network to call your service provider.
While you get the PUK code ,the service provider customer care officer will ask for your personal details to check whether the mobile belongs to you only. If they are satisfied with your answers they will provide with the PUK code
DONOT enter the PUK code several times wrongly,It will block your sim card permanently.
This PUK code is FREE. You no need to pay any sum to get the PUK code
Thank You.

Puk blocked


For PUK codes, you can attempt 10x to enter the PUK codes in your phone. Once you enter incorrect PUK codes 10x,you'll recieve PUK blocked then what you need is to enter the PUK2. Make sure that you will enter the PUK2 correctly because if you enter incorrect PUK codes 10x,you'll recieve PUK BLOCKED error again. This time,you need to ask your service provider for SIM replacement.

PUK - code kotroy must be granted by the operator when buying a phone connection.Without this code, or ten times you enter an incorrect PUK, your phone will becompletely blocked!

Every time the telephone, you must obtain your PIN-code (4 to 8 digits), except forsituations when you unplug the PIN-code request the appropriate setting your phone.Be careful when typing PIN-code! If the code is typed incorrectly three times in succession, SIM-card is automatically blocked.

To unlock your phone you will need:
- Enter PUK1 and click "OK"
- Enter the new PIN-code and press "OK"
- Press to confirm

To set the code provided 10 attempts. If the 10 times you've dialed is incorrect PUK-code - card is blocked completely, and you have to buy a new SIM-card. Recover PINcodes and PUK-if you have forgotten them - can be turned into a subscription service.You can disable the PIN-code request, but then the protection against unauthorized use of SIM-card will not be provided.

My phone has sim blocked how do i get it unblocked


You would need to enter the PUK Code for your SIM card. You will either need to call the service provider of your cell phone for the PUK code or refer to the SIM certificates that is included on the cell phone package when you got your cell phone for the PUK code.

Once you've entered your PUK code, it should automatically deactivate the SIM block on your phone.
If you enter the wrong PUK code 7 to 10 times in succession, it will lead to PUK blocked. After entering the wrong PUK code 10 times in a row, the SIM card becomes permanently invalid or locked. So be careful.


Hope this helps!

My phone will only allow me to use the emergency call number, It say PUK blocked? Please assist.


A PUK blocked message pops up after one enters the wrong PUK code 7 or 10 times in a row, depending on the service provider. A PUK code is required only after one blocks the SIM PIN code.

Many times, it may so happen that you block your PIN code. You will need to call the customer care of the service provider of your cell phone for the PUK code or refer the SIM certificates for the PUK code. If you enter the wrong PUK code 7 to 10 times in succession, it will lead to PUK blocked. After entering the wrong PUK code 10 times in a row, the SIM card becomes permanently invalid or locked. The only solution is to purchase a new SIM card.

PUK blocked requires you to get a new SIM card. It does not matter whether you use a Nokia Cell Phone, LG Cellphone, Motorola Cell Phone, Samsung or Sony Ericsson handset. The handset is not the one that's deactivated, but its the SIM card that gets blocked. So, contact your network store for further help and getting yourself a new SIM card (new phone number). I hope this article on PUK blocked on cell phone has helped you find the solution to your phone problems.

I've tired to set the PIN code for my Nokia 6085 phone but I cannot. I've entered the PUK code but now it says, "Enter new PIN code:" What do I do? I've entered a code I wanted and other ones on my...


HOLD ON!
You may enter wrong PIN three (3) times only. After that your PIN will be blocked! To unblock, you need PUK. You can only enter wrong PUK ten (10) times. (This is as documented) After entering correct PUK, you will be asked for NEW PIN.

So, when it says "PIN blocked. Enter PUK code", you must enter the PUK. If you correctly enter the PUK, it will asked for new PIN, by asking "Enter new PIN code:". Enter anything you want as your PIN. You will be asked to enter it twice (two times).
From what I read from your post, you have done correctly, but you don't want to enter new PIN. There is no way SIM card/phone will use old PIN. The device doesn't know your PIN. So, you have to enter new PIN.

WRONG PIN CODE PUK BLOCKED


A PUK code is a code entered to unlock the PIN block when you enter the wrong PIN 3 times.

You call up your service provider and they will give you the PUK. Don't try and guess the PUK as if you mess up a few times the SIM will be permanently blocked. Usually paperwork with the SIM will have a list of a couple of PUKs.
