SOURCE: unlocking puk code

probably the PUK code is on the SIM card, or not the phone...but if you have the PUK code on the phone, the best thing is to look for a shortcut code for master reset...this shortcut code is a code that looks like (for example) ###85939# (do not try this one, it is just an example) so if you'll find that code...start the phone without the SIM inserted and try writing the code (not the one I gave you, but one you'll find on the internet, or the one I'll give to you in the future, if you'll give me some details about the phone) ...and then you can see if it works...however another solution might be to contact a phone service to resoft it...I think that's going to work...but I'm not pretty sure...

I am a user of Reliance CDMA , the SIM has been locked and its asking for the PUK Code.. What is the PUK Code?


A PUK code is a "Pin unlock code" it is used in mobile phones. This code unlocks the SIM card to allow access to your mobile phone. If you enter this code incorrectly several times, then the SIM card will be locked permanently and you will need to purchase another SIM card from your mobile phone provider.
The PUK code is with the documentation that came with your SIM card, if you no longer have the documentation, then you need to contact your phone service provider and ask them for the PUK code.

Hi. i was wondering if someone would be able to help me out with PUK code. i have cingular phone. i don't know how but somehow i've locked myself out of it.


Call 1-800-331-0500. Tell them you have locked yourself out, and it's asking for the PUK code. They will give you the proper code. DO NOT TRY ENTERING DIFFERENT CODES! It will lock your SIM card and you will have to get a replacement.

Puk number for at&t


The PUK code is (in my case) a an 8 digit number that I must enter to make the phone operable after someone (me) trys to enter my password and fails too many times.
I ran into this a while back before Singular became AT&T. I was locked out and I called Cingular and told the tech my phone was asking for a PUK code. I had to prove to him who I was somehow, I don't remember now how I did that. Maybe with my latest bill or something. Anyway he finally told me the numbers to enter. I wrote the numbers down first and then entered them. I've had to use them a couple of times since to get back in after I've locked myself out. It stays constant once you get the code. I have checked my phone under the battery and under the memory chip and these numbers are nowhere to be found on the phone. I SUGGEST YOU PUT A RECORDER ON YOUR PHONE OR HAVE SOMEONE LISTEN IN AND WRITE DOWN THE CODE WHEN YOU CALL AT&T. IT MAKE ME MAD THAT I OWNED A PHONE BUT AT&T KNEW A SECRET CODE TO MAKE IT OPERABLE. This is however a good feature though. I have my phone password protected so if I lose it and someone finds it they can only use it until they turn off the power one time and then they will get locked out and it will ask for the PUK code. Good luck, call AT&T and remember being nice will get you somewhere more then likely.

Need to unblock phone


PUK means "personal unlocking key" .

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

You need to call the phone company that released the SIM card, they can retrieve the puk code from a database for free.

In your case you need to contact your SIM card 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.
