I jus locked my lg vu i dont know what the PUK code is


The PUK code is not related to the handset. It is associated with your SIM card. When you enable the PIN in your SIM card, every time you switch on your phone, you will be asked for your pin. At given number of tries provided by your mobile operator, that you have provided the wrong PIN (usually operators set it at 3 tries), then you came to the stage called PUK-blocked.

To unlock, you would need the PUK code of the SIM card. The PUK code is usually an 8-digit code. This PUK code should have been provided to you when you purchased your SIM card. Some has the PIN-PUK code printed in the card body of the SIM card, while some attach it as a separate print out. Should your operator failed to provide this PIN-PUK code to you, you would have to get it from your operator. Try calling their customer service. Just like the PIN, the operator as well could say how much tries do you have to successfully unblock the PUK of your SIM .

What is PUK code. How to get this?


A Pin Unlock Code (PUC) or Pin Unlock Key (PUK) is used in GSM mobile phones and some smartcards to unblock a blocked SIM card.
The basic of PUK code is,
  • SIM cards have their own security
  • on startup SIM cards ask for PIN code (4 digit)
  • If user enters it correctly then its accessible
  • If user enters it incorrectly 3 times (in some 7 times) PIN code is blocked. To stop brute force attempt.
  • Blocked PIN code is unlocked through PUC (Pin Unlock Code) or alternatively called PUK Pin Unlock Key which is 8 digit.
  • If PUK is entered correctly user sets new PIN code and SIM is accessible.
  • If PUK is entered incorrectly 3 times, then SIM is no longer usable or accessible and any data in it is lost.
  • Sim card security is managed by their providers which are usually network companies like vodafone, 3G, Orange and Virgin or T mobile etc... (Whatever is yours like U-Fone, Warid etc....)
  • NO ONE else can give PUK code. YOU HAVE TO ASK YOUR SERVICE PROVIDER/NETWORK for PUK.

Pin code


LG default PIN code is 1111, but this may not work if phone company has set their own pin.

If you enter PIN code wrong three times You will trigger PUK code , that means that you will have to call phone company or replace SIM card.

If you do not find the PIN code, put 1111. If PUK code starts do the following:

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.

Pin number


If you have lost your pin number, the only way to rest the PIN is either using a different SIM card, or entering wrong PIN three times, triggering in PUK code, and then calling SIM card phone company to unlock the PUK.

A lost PIN cannot be retrieved, only the PUK can be discoverd, but you will have to call the phone company.

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 SIM card provider is the brand on the SIM card. For example if you have a Vodafone card, you will need to call Vodafone to get the PUK.

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.
