SOURCE: pin blocked

Hello,

You entered your pincode wrong 3 times or more. You need your PUK code to undo. Your provider can provide you with this. There is NO otherway to unblock this (so called 'unlocking' is something else).

Best regards,

Blocked sim or phone need help


Only the sim is blocked, not the phone. The unblocking code is located on the sim casing when you bought it. It will ask you to enter the code and new PIN code 2 times but will completely block it if the limited number of attempts is reached. You can just simply replace the sim and the phone will work again normally.

My Pin is Blocked my phone Can you help me?


Hi,

PUK code in PIN UNLOCKING CODE, which is required when you give PIN number wrongly for 3 times,
This code is OPERATOR specific and not phone specific and you have to call you operator and get PUk if PIN is blocked...

if you provide PUK code wrongly for 7 time, you sim may become useless, then you have to buy new SIM

NOTE: You should ask your service provider, get the PUK enter PIN 3 time wrongly aply PUka and set your new PIN..
