Hello and Welcome to FixYa!
Sir, PIN/PIN2 and PUK codes are all service provider dependent you can NEVER get it from any 3rd service. So never trust any source that claim that they can give you your PIN or PUK.

You can get it free and it is your right, all you have to do is to call your service provider (Orange,T-Mobile..) from some other phone or land-line and ask them for the code, they will first authenticate the ownership of that specific SIM Card connection and will give you your PIN/PUK code in return. Note it somewhere for future reference.


I Hope you will have a clearer picture now.



If you have any questions/problems do ask me, I'm here to help.

This problem is caused by typing incorrect PIN number for 3 or more times.
Call customer care service from another sim(Same company) and ask them to tell PUK code for your mobilenumber and also ask PIN number,Then insert blocked sim and type given numbers now problem solved.

Hi, if you enter wrong PIN for three times, you are then given 10 attempts to enter the PUK. (it is printed on the voucher of sim card when you have purchased the sim) Your sim card will be blocked permanently if you still entered incorrect PUK code after the 10th attempt.
And if ever you lost the voucher you have only 2 ways to get rid of the PUK code:
1. Replace the sim card or 2. Call the phone company that released the sim card. They will give you the PUK code once you give them your account details and they have confirmed your identity. Hope this can help you,GoodLuck=)

PUK code can be given only by your service provider which is specific for each and every mobile number.

The puk code for telephone is the special code that allows you to do a master reset on the telephone. You will also need that number to unlock the telephone after it has been locked.

Contact your sim customer care department over phone. Its free of cost to get the pin or puk no.
If you cant contact through your phone get some other phone and contact them.

Go to the nearest service outlet of your service provider they can also help you.

There is no other go than the above procedure only your service provider cangive
it nobody else in this world nor any software.

My phone says" PIN blocked,


Hello and Welcome to FixYa!

Just relax, PINs and PUK codes are your right to know. They are unique for every connection. You can never get it from anywhere in the world except the Operators.

All you have to do is to call the service providers like T-mobile, Orange from landline or other cellphone and ask for the PIN and PUK agaisn that connection (SIM card). They will first authenticate your ownership and will give you your code in return.


I hope you will have a clear picture now.

Forgot my security code


We don't know it either, that's why it's called a security code.

You didn't give any useful details either, so at a best guess you've set a pin code on your phone and cannot recall it. If so, then after a few attempts your phone will display a message to say that it's PUK locked. To unlock it and set a new pin code you'll need a PUK code (Personal Unblocking Key) from your network supplier, nobody else can provide it.

If you have a BlackBerry then matters get more complicated, but if so you can add a comment to get more guidance.

My phone is locked i don,t know the pin sonnyericson w705


Hi,

PIN CODE is SIM dependenet and not phone dependent

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, give the PIN 3 times wrongly and it asks for PUk,provide the PUK and set the new PIN..
