If you enter the wrong pin code for 3 times your sim will get blocked ...
it will ask for the puk code ...
then you must call to the customer care of your network provider and you must tell them that your pin got blocked you want the puk code ...
they may ask for the details of your sim card be sure to tell it ..

then they will provide the puk code note it down and enter into it ..
your sim will get unlocked...

note :
if you enter the wrong puk code for more than 3 or 10 times the sim will get fully blocked if then you must contact to network provider shoppe....

Need puk code for my phone


An overview of PUK codes


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 AT&T to unlock your SIM card.

You can obtain your phone's PUK code from AT&T in one of these ways:

Get Your Phone's PUK Code Online
  1. Go to the Phone/Device page in myAT&T.
  2. From the My Phone/Device screen, select the Unblock SIM Card link under Manage my phone/device.
  3. 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."

Yh need me puk number


What is a PUK code? A PUK code (Pin Unlock Key) is required when you enter an incorrect PIN 3 times. After entering the wrong PIN 3 times, the card will be locked and you will need to get a PUK code from your phone company to unlock it.
What should I do if my phone says Enter PUK Code? How can I get a PUK Code? You can receive your phone's PUK code by calling your phone company Customer Care.. Once your PUK has been received, it will need to be entered into your phone to set a new PIN code. If the wrong PUK code is entered ten times in a row, the SIM card becomes invalid and you will need to purchase a new SIM Card. The phone will display "PUK blocked call operator".

How to unblock a puk code?


PUK stands for Personal Unblocking Key, and it is a unique identificative code to prevent theft, or unauthorized users from using your SIM.
Even if it comes with the phone, PUK code is associated to SIM card, not to the phone.
When you input wrong SIM card pin three times , the phone will ask the PUK code.
Usually PUK is printed on a sticker inside phone box.
If you have lost your PUK code you will need to call the company that provides you the phone service when you bought the phone (eg. Vodaphone, Orange, 3, Telecom etc.).
The only alternative is going to a phone shop, they will call the phone company , get PUK and unlock your SIM.

Some phones have also an unlock code, but this is not called PUK, if phone asks for PUK you need to call phone company.
There is no way to get PUK straight from the phone.
If phone is locked with Phone Lock Code go to a local phone shop, they will connect it to a computer and get the code.
Common phone default unlock codes are 0000 for Sony Erikkson, and 1234 for Nokia.





you have to ask your service provider for PUK. Personal Unlocking Code (PUK) is needed when 3 entry of wrong security had been made. You can ask Globe's customer care no (it is call free) from another Globe sim . Operator online will ask you 2-3 question to determine your identity and provide you PUK. There is no another way to get PUK as it is providers fixed code.

I Need puk code for my sony ericsson k220i model


PUK means "personal unlocking key" .

The PUK code is asked if you enter a wrong pin 3 times.

You need to call your phone service company, they can retrieve the puk code from a database for free.

In your case you need to contact your SIM card phone provider technical support to unlock the SIM.


The PIN and PUK are related to the SIM card, not to the phone.

If you replace the SIM card with a different one, then the phone will not ask for the PUK anymore.
