Hi
PUK code is called as PERSONNAL UNBLOCKING KEY.
Your phone will ask for PUK code when you entered the PIN code wrongly several times depending upon the mobile make. The mobile asks for PUK code so that unauthorized persons do not use your mobile for wrong cause.
To get PUK code please contact your service provider through phone or go directly to their office. They will provide you the PUK code for your mobile. The PUK code for mobile phone.so that you can open your phone. When you planning to call your service provider you cannot use your mobile as it is fully locked. Please use some other mobile with same network to call your service provider.
While you get the PUK code ,the service provider customer care officer will ask for your personal details to check whether the mobile belongs to you only. If they are satisfied with your answers they will provide with the PUK code
DONOT enter the PUK code several times wrongly,It will block your sim card permanently.
This PUK code is FREE. You no need to pay any sum to get the PUK code

But Don't try to enter a PUK code without knowing the right one. You need to call your service provider to get this code. It can be as many as 8 digits, and it is random. If you enter too many wrong codes, you can permanently damage the device. So Please You Go to Service office and Get the Duplicate Sim From Office Oprater Same Your No Problem will Solved

How to unlock my Indian kp500 puk code?


PUK is PIN unlocking Code which can only be provided by the service provider of you SIM card. You don't have any other option to get a PUK.
When you enter 3 wrong PIN to your SIM card it will ask for PUK code which will then help you to reset the PIN with a new code. In case you accidentally enter Wrong PUK for more than 10 times it will damage your SIM and you will have to replace it.

Hence you are suggested to contact your Mobile Service Provider and Get the PUK. No other way to get a PUK.

Feel free to revert for any further clarification or assistance

Hi my sons phone is showing enter PUK code! can you help or do I have to contact his network/supplier? thankyou


PUK code stands for pin unlock code. It comes when you enter wrong code for your pin code three times. It is a security feature of your sim card to avoid unauthorised access.

When you enable pin code on your sim card, your phone automatically asks for pin no. when switched on. If the pin is entered wrongly 3 times. It locks the sim, and asks for PUK code. The PUK code needs to be obtained from your provider. If you enter PUK wrongly 10 times, your sim card will be permanently blocked and you will need to obtain a new sim card. Hence kindly contact your network for the right puk code.

Hi
sorry but sim is permantly blocked now. If sim pin is entered incorrectly 3 times the phone will request a PUK code. If you continue to enter pin incorrectly 10 more times the sim will block permantly. Hence PUK blocked. The best thing to do now will be too contact your service provider to see if they can replace your sim? Hope that helps?
