you need to get the puk code from the owner company of the sim card. Globe? prepaid card? get a new sim card if you can't get a puk code, since you might aswell cut it into parts and throw out from the window then.

for your puk code you will need to contact your sim network and ask them for the puk code there the only one to have this .

dont enter any other number till you have your puk code for sim network.

SOURCE: The phone needs a code to unblock the whole phone.

Be aware that some users experienced phone freezes after messing up with these codes (use at your own risk). The best thing is to remember the code.
If you are sure you want to continue, follow this steps:
1. Remove the Sim and switch on
2. when you get "Insert the SIM" message
Enter this code: *2767*3855# and let it restart (your phone will be temporarily unlocked)
3. Enter *7465625*638*00000000*00000000#
4. Enter #7465625*638*00000000# (unlocked permanently)

SOURCE: how to detect the sim card i put?

I guess your phone has not been unlocked yet. Unlocked phones do not have any specific carrier software and work with all GSM carriers. These include T-Mobile, Cingular and AAAA . Multi-band unlocked phones also will work with carriers in other countries.So I guess you need to unlock your phone so that u can enjoy in your country.

My new fone i have put a puk code on it an would like the puk number to un lock it my net work is virgin

Your original SIM card package would have come with the PUK code.

If you cannot find the Provider Unlock Kode, then just ring your mobile provider Help Desk and request the code from them for your SIM card and phone number.

If you manage your mobile online, normally for Virgin Mobile, the PUK code is often available in the User facility pages.

Hope it helps.

I need the puk no for my samsung sgh-f480

Please call the Customer Care of your Network Operator (sim card provider), they will tell your the code. There's no other way or no means to get the code except from the Service Operator. They might ask your few questions related to the Sim Card, like your name or your address, tell them promptly and they will give you the puk code for your sim card. It's also important to note down the Sim Card Number (number written on the sim card) if in case they ask you the sim number. You will also be assisted on how to disable the security settings.

Note: if you keep entering random/unknown numbers/codes, the sim card will be locked and will be rejected. It'll not be usable anymore. Good luck.

Thanks for using FixYa.

I wrongly entered puk code plz tell how can get

Hi there,

Your phone is requesting the PUK code since you have unsuccesfully made 3 attempts to enter your PIN code to your phone.

You need to contact your service provider in regards to your PUK (Personalised Unlocking Key) code. Just ring them up and tell them that you need a PUK code, they should give it to you free of charge.

I suggest you once you have your PUK code, to write it down somewhere where only you will remember it for next time. Don't write it on the phone or on the outside of the phone just in case of the event where you have lost your phone or it has been stolen.

Hope I have been of assistance to you,

Cheers :)
