You should have a PUK number, on the plastic card where your sim card was. If you've lost it:
Pin Unlock Code (PUK)
If you miss key (or forget) your SIM pin code, and enter the wrong one 3-5 times in a row, the SIM will lock up, and you’ll need to enter the PUK unlock code to release it. You should ask your Network Service Provider for this code when you need it. Don’t try to guess it, because after a few wrong guesses, the SIM card will be permanently disabled.

I need samsung sim lock


Hi. Is your Samsung phone's SIM card PUK locked? If so, you can get the PUK code from your network provider and unlock it. PUK codes cannot be obtained from private sources.
If your Samsung phone has SIM locked or network locked, you can unlock it using unique unlock code. You can get the unique unlock code either from your network provider or from any trusted vendor online like ProUnlocking.com at affordable cost with an easy unlocking guide. Good luck.

NEED PUK UNLOCK CODE


PUK

What is a PUK? PUK stands for Personal Unblocking Key, and it's a code that's associated with a mobile phone SIM card.

Why am I being asked for a PUK? Your mobile phone's SIM Card has a four-digit PIN code enabled by default. If you enter the PIN code incorrectly three times, a lock will be put onto the SIM card, and you need a PUK code to unlock it.

Where do I get a PUK? If you're being asked to enter a PUK, you will need to contact your network operator to get your SIM Card unlocked. This is for security reasons. Note that only your mobile phone network operator can legally provide you with a PUK code to unlock your SIM card.

What is puk code?


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 service provider to unlock your SIM card.

You can obtain your phone's PUK code from your local operator by calling customer care.

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."

Hope that's help you...

Tocco lite phone freeze deactivate fail


here is some info on PUK codes:

try taking battery and SIM out waiting 15 seconds and powering cell back on.

In your case I believe your SIM is now FROZEN or locked. You mostlikely will need to purchase a new SIM card.

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 service provider to unlock it.

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".

Puk locked need code to unlock sch-U900T samsung


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.

An alternative is going to a local phone shop and having the unlock done for a small fee.

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 should not ask for the PUK anymore.
