Hi if you've locked your phone through entering an incorrect pin number 3 times then you need a Puk code, Ring your service provider and they will give you the FREE Puk code.....
If you lock your phone again some time in the future and you're still with the same service provider you can use that same Puk code.. CHEERS..

I got a old phone from my friend because my phone got broken. and when i went into the security code set up, i thought the security code was 0000. but it was wrong and it asked me about the puk codes and i...


You have entered the wrong SIM password so it is locked. You can unlock it easily. You have to call your network service provider and ask for PUK code. They can ask you SIM no. which is printed at the back of SIM card.
Then you can enter the PUK code and use the phone again.
Revert in case of any problem.

Puk code for boost i450


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.

If you keep entering random codes/unknown numbers several times, your sim card will be rejected and will not be usable anymore.

Your only solution is to call the service provider (Network operator's customer care), ask them to give you your puk code, they'll promptly give it to you after few inquiries to make sure you are the true owner of the sim card. (there's no charge as well, and if you call from the same network' sim card to the customer care, you'll not spend/pay a penny).

There's no other alternatives, or no other options that you can get the code, so don't play around, rather make a call to the customer care of the sim card network operator and get the code.

I wish you good luck.

I have a Nokia phone. I was goofing around with the security setting and now it's asking for a PUK code. What is it and how do i get my phone to work again???


This problem is very common and most users think that it's related to phone, which is not true, this is only with your sim card and is for security reason. We can't use software or hardware or other tricks or methods to unlock it, the only solution is from the Service Operator/Network Operator.

I have a samsung tocco its asking me for a puk number because i blocked it up, can anyone help me with this problem,


Hi the PUK code is not a security code for the phone the PUK code is the security code for the sim card, to solve your problem all you need to do is contact your service provider and tell them you need your PUK code, they will ask you for the phone number of the sim card or the number printed on the sim card, they will then give you your PUK code they dont charge for doing this and they will give you the code over the phone and once entered this will give you access to your sim card again and get your phone working again.

the other option you have is if you dont need that sim card then you could just get a new sim card this then wont ask for the PUK code

doing either of the above will solve your problem, they wont charge for giving you the PUK code so that is your best option

Nokia N 70 - Error - 'Sim Card Rejected'


Hi,

IF you put PUK code many times depending on the model it wil lock the sim card. This is because to prevent unathorised person using your SIM card.

Default PIN code for nokia mobile is 0000
PUK code will be given by the service provider only.

Please call your service provider or go to service provider office,they will assist you in this issue.And they will have a security check like name,Phone number and other information to check weather the SIM card belongs to you only.Then they will assit you.

Thanx

Hello i have china phone i9++i model in security set up sim2 it was asking puk2 pl send the puk2


Hi,

The easiest way to get the PUK code is to call your service provider, such as T-Mobile or Verizon. They need to verify your cell phone number and your IMEI number and they will provide you with the PUK code.

Hope this helps,
Joe

I just got a Nokia 2600 with at&t the other day. I was playing around with it to see what everything was and how it works. I went to the security center of my phone and it had an option i forget what it...


Hey


you have entered the pin code wrong 3 times now you are required to enter a puk code to reset the pin code. 

The puk code is sim card spesific it comes with the sim card when you get it or you can get it by calling your phone service provider of the sim card to get the puk code. 



if you have entered the puk code wrong too many times you will make the sim card useless and you will have to contact your phone service provider for a new sim card, it will probably cost.
