Most security codes as default are 123456 or 000000

If this is not the code ask your friend. If your friend doesnt know there may be codes that you can type in which will reset the code but to provide you with that I would need to know the make and model of phone.

My sim no:899192090716882924H1 Airtel please help me to get my PUK code


Hi the PUK code is the security code for the sim card and not the phone the only place you can get this code from is your service provider, you have to call them and give them your sim number their is no other way of getting this code, they will ask you your name and adresse and the sim number.

if you dont need to use that sim then you could just get another sim card and then it wont ask for the PUK code, dont try guessing the PUK code as every single sim card made has its own unique pin number, their are no code generators out their to do this as the number is random and cant be generated.

let me know how you get on or if you need further assistance ok

Ive been given a nokia 5200 phone from my brother who has moved away from ireland and i cannot contact him for another month. the phone has a vodaphone sim and i have no codes at all for it i want to...


If your phone is asking you to enter pin or puk code, you need not to contact your brother, rather you better contact the service provider's customer care, they will ask you to give them some info about the sim card registration (on whose name, address etc which i think you know) and will give you the code to reset your phone instantly while you are on the line so be ready to provide them the sim card no. and other info. If the problem is with the sim card lock ("Sim Lock, enter code"), you can manually give a try using this code *#7370# or *#7780# to do this, remove the sim card, memory card, but keep in mind that everything in your phone will be deleted, so copy or not down important files/contacts.
How's it? still the same? So sad but one last chance biut 100% success ratre. Now your last option to get it back so that you can use with another sim card is to get it unlocked using unlock software/flashing software at a mobile repairing shop. good luck

IT IS ASKING FOR A PUK pin


Hi the PUK code is the security code for the sim card and the only place you can get the PUK code from is your service provider you need to give them a call and give them your phone number they will then give you the PUK code for free.

You can sometimes get the code from your service providers web site but not all service providers do this on their site but calling your service provider will get you the code you are needing.

I have an LG U8380 phone which is asking for a PUK code. I have the box and sim card, however there is no PUK code specified. Can you please let me know where the PUK code is?


Ring your recharge number and select option4 and they will give you your puk code but if you used up all your retrys then you have to go and get a new sim.

My lg shine keeps telling me to put in a puk code but i dont know the puk is on my phone


HI,

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.


thank you,

Setup problems


Try going to Options> Advanced options> Register now

Highlight any one other than the one in bold, then select menu> Register now. This will reregister you on the network and hopefully fix your texting issue by having the service books resent to your phone.

Do you have a sim card or Memory card in the phone yet? Make sure you are saving your contacts to one of those and not the phone itself.
