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.


If you think I was of help, your token of appreciation in the form of rating will be esteemed.

Concerned, Nooh

Hope it helps.

How do i reset my sim lock, i forgot my password


PUK Code
PUK stands for Personal Unblocking Key. This is a unique eight-digit code specific to your SIM card. This is required when the PIN number to unlock your mobile phone is entered incorrectly 3 times. You are then given 10 attempts to enter your PUK code. If an incorrect PUK code is entered after the 10th attempt, you will block your SIM card permanently and will require a new SIM card from your mobile phone provider.
PUK codes can be obtained through the following ways - The PUK code is in your SIM card documentation Starter Pack. If you do not have this then - Please contact your phone service provider.
Your cell phone service provider can give you the PUK code once you give them your account details and they have confirmed your identity. For details to obtain the PUK code for the SIM card, please click on this link and follow my instructions.

I forgot the sim pin of my motorola v188 phone


Hello my Friend,
If it's the SIM card PIN that you forgot, there is no way to unlock it except if you have the PUK.
Usually when you get an new SIM card, you get with it 2 codes, the PIN and the PUK. So when you forgot and you enter a wrong PIN 3 times. at that time the SIM card will ask you for a PUK code. be careful, because if you enter the a wrong PUK 3 times. there will be noway to unlock it even if you contact the service provider.
Now, if you don't have your PUK code or if your GSM service provide didn't provide you the PUK. you can simply give a call to their customer service and they send you the PUK via SMS.
Let me know if you have any additional question.
Best Regards,

I turned off fone and forgot pin after 3 tries fone locked i have lost puk to unblock vodafone pin9231 fone number 918520365


puk code, personal unlocking key. It is sim card related / specific, if you take the sim card out from 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.

Forgot pin and now need PUK


The PUK code is a code associated with the SIM card and not with the phone.

You have only two ways to get rid of the PUK code. Either you replace the SIM card , or you call phone provider that issued the sim cadr (eg. At&T, Virgin, Tmobile , Vodafone, Telecom etc.)

PUK means "personal unlocking key" .

The PUK code is asked if you enter a wrong pin 3 times.

You need to call the phone company that released the SIM card, they can retrieve the PUK code from a database for free.

In your case you need to contact your SIM card 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 will not ask for the PUK anymore.
