I have entered three wrong PUK and PIN NUMBERS PLEASE WHAT DO DO TO RESET IT?


These directions arre for AT and T phones but other than that would be the same for your carrier.

A PUK (PIN Unlock Key) code is required to unlock SIM cards that have become locked following three successive incorrect PIN entries. If your SIM card becomes locked, you will need to get a PUK code from AT&T to unlock your SIM card.

You can obtain your phone's PUK code from AT&T in one of these ways:

Log in to myAT&T online

Use our Technical Support Chat

Contact Customer Care at 1-800-331-0500

Get Your Phone's PUK Code Online

Go to the Phone/Device page in myAT&T.

From the My Phone/Device screen, select the Unblock SIM Card link under the My Make & Model heading.

The Unblock SIM screen will display your PUK code and will give you instructions for unblocking your SIM Card.

Once you receive your PUK code, you will need to enter it into your phone to set a new PIN code.

Note: If you enter the wrong PUK code 10 times in a row, your SIM card will be invalidated, and you will need to purchase a new SIM Card. The phone will display the following error: "PUK blocked call operator."

Jow to unlock sim card


  • 'SIM Card Locked'
  • 'Your SIM card has been security locked. Please contact Customer Care for a PUK number.'
  • 'Code: SIM6'
  • 'Enter PUK code'
  • 'PIN code blocked. Enter PUK code:'
To enter a PUK code and unblock the PIN, follow these steps:
Important: You must call T-Mobile Customer Care for the PUK code. Entering the wrong code can permanently damage your SIM card.

  • Access the Phone application.
  • Enter the following string: **05*[PUK]*[new pin]*[new pin]#.
    • The brackets [ ] in the steps should not be entered. They denote placeholder information. For example, when you see [PUK], only enter the PUK code itself.
    • The command is executed when the pound # key is entered. You do not need to press the Send key.
    • The device pauses for 5 to 10 seconds while updating the new PIN.

    My sim is blocked only says puk blocked contact operator so wt should i do. so plz suggest me any idea


    if your phone is asking for the PUK code then this is the code for the sim card if it lets you enter a code then all you need to do is contact your service provider and give ask them for the PUK code, they will give you this for free over the phone.

    if how ever you have entered the PUK code wrong a certain amount of times then this will block the sim card and it will mean that this sim card can no longer be used, so if your phone is asking for the PUK code then call your service provider and ask them for the code, this will then allow you to use that sim card.

    if the PUK code is blocked and can no longer be used then your only other option would be to get another sim card for the phone that is for the network your phone can use if the sim card thats asking for the PUK code is say from vodafone then you need to get another vodafone sim card that is unless you phone has been duel banded and can use any network.

    when you get a new sim card you should get the PUK code for that sim card so if you do go for a new sim card then keep this number handy in case you ever need the PUK code again.

    The PUK code is assigned to every single sim cad made and every single sim card has its own unique code that can only be found through your service provider so if they give you the PUK code for the sim card thats asking then remember this code will only work with that sim card and no other.

    from what i can remember you get 10 chances of getting the PUK right before the sim card gets locked and once the seim card is locked it can never be unlocked so its not wort trying to guess the code as its a random 8 or 11 digit number so guessing the correct code would be harder than winning the lottery.

    I want puk code for my number 9036764202


    Few people use PIN locking system to lock their phone to avoid un-authorised access. Though this is a good option, it pisses you off sometime. Three wrong entry of PIN code will result in SIM blocking. Once SIM gets blocked, phone starts asking PUK code to enter. If you again enter wrong code for three times, SIM gets completely blocked. You have to walk into your service provider outlet to get a replacement SIM card.
    PUK code is a SIM specific code assigned by your service provider. No way you can guess & enter it. So, when it asks for the PUK code, don’t do anything, get the PUK code from your service provider. You may call to customer care using any other mobile phone which uses the same service provider. They will ask some details about you to make sure you are the owner of the SIM card. Questions might include your billing address, email ID, numbers you recently called or messaged etc. They might even ask you number printed on the SIM card, so be prepared with all details before calling them. Once you get the PUK code, enter it into the phone & your phone will return to normal.
