The PUK code or Personal Unblocking Keys are a security device that deters people from using your handset. For as you see 3 failed attempts at your pin means you need a PUK.

The only place you can get a PUK is from your service provider.

This means that you are going to have to phone them up from another phone.

You will be asked a series of questions to verify you are in fact the true owner of the handset and you will also be asked for the handsets IMEI number. This is located on a sticker underneath the battery or you can get it by typing *#06# into the blocked handset.

As I say...Only your service provider can issue you with the correct PUK and guessing will ultimately BLOCK your handset permanently.

I hope this helps? :)

Hi my sons phone is showing enter PUK code! can you help or do I have to contact his network/supplier? thankyou


PUK code stands for pin unlock code. It comes when you enter wrong code for your pin code three times. It is a security feature of your sim card to avoid unauthorised access.

When you enable pin code on your sim card, your phone automatically asks for pin no. when switched on. If the pin is entered wrongly 3 times. It locks the sim, and asks for PUK code. The PUK code needs to be obtained from your provider. If you enter PUK wrongly 10 times, your sim card will be permanently blocked and you will need to obtain a new sim card. Hence kindly contact your network for the right puk code.

Hi my 9 yr old son has been mesing about with his phone and now its sayin 10 attempts to enter puk but we dont know it please help


PUK is the property of your SIM card. If you enter wrong SIM PIN no. 3 times then you'll be asked to enter PUK code and if you enter wrong PUK code 10 times then your SIM could be deactivated.
Usually PUK is written in the intial SIM card package by your carrier.

You will need to speak to someone from your carrier to get/reset your PUK code.

Hope this helps! If it did, feel free to rate :)

Gud day! im fred, i just bought my samsung s5560 3months ago and i decided to activate the phone lock code. i change the default password 3 times but last week i change it again but unfortunately i forgot...


Hi

This what to do to solve your problem.

Enter the wrong code three times and it will request for PUK code.

Get the PUK code form the back of your starter pack or call your service provider to give you your PUK CODE.

Enter the PUK code and phone will ask you to put a new password.

Put your new password and the phone will unlock.

Good luck.

Pin locked


PUK code, (personal unlocking key).

This is SIM card related / specific. If you take the SIM card out of the phone, the phone will work with another sim card.


The puk comes up when the pin code has been entered wrong 3 times. To get the puk code for your sim card, you have to call the service provider of that sim card. They are the only ones who can provide you with the right puk code for that sim card.


The puk code may also have came with the documentation of the sim card, if its a prepaid card the Puk code comes on the documents or on the box of the product.


if your unable to obtain the puk code, get a new SIM card.


Also entering the PUK code wrong too many times will eventually ruin the sim card forcing you to buy or contact your service provider for a new sim card.


There are no puk code calculators or anything that we can do about it, you can buy premium assistance and you will get this same response. There is no other solution.


You have to contact the phone service provider of that sim card or replace the SIM card.

Puk password


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..

Need puk code for nokia n82


the puk code is required when the pin code is written wrong 3 times, to get the puk call your phone service provider the puk is not related to the phone so if you put in another sim card it will work, or if you put the locked sim card to another phone then the other phone will ask for puk.

its simcard protection incase its stolen, 3 times wrong and its locked, eventually if you enter the puk code wrong too many times it should make the sim card useless so call your phone service provider its your only option.

PUK Code


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 should not ask for the PUK anymore.
