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
Thank You.

It is asking for a PUK code after i put in the phone unlock code. Wat is the PUK code


PUK stands for Pin Unblocking Key,this PUK code is used if wrong PIN (Personal Identification Number)code is entered for several try's.It means if you enter PIN for more than 3x,the simcard will be blocked and ask you to enter the PUK code as what is explain above.

Usually this PUK code is on the package together with your simpack when you bought it. in your phone case,you need to enter the PUK code to unblock the PIN so you can access the simcard data's and features,otherwise,if you lost your PUK code, just contact your service provider and ask for your PUK code.



hope it helps...

If you enter a wrong PUK number 10 times than you simcard gets rejected. Then you will have to buy a new simcard.

Hi i was dial a wrong pin number and it is pin code blocked now it needs puk number can you help me plsss my number is +971559249338


Hello,

The puk is very easy to get. just look at the back of the starter given to you when you bought you simcard. The starter pack is the pack the your simcard was put into.

Enter the puk on the phone and the phone will unlock.

And if you can't get the starter pack, call your service provider and they will give you the puk instantly. Enter the puk on your phone and the phone will unlock.

Thanks for contacting Fixya.

PUK Code


Hi,a PUK code is for your simcard and not your phone,

Another sim will work ok in the phone,

Your simcard has been blocked due to entering the wrong pin code 3 times,you need to contact your simcard/network provider who will be able to supply you with the PUK code to ublock your simcard,there should be no charge

- Some network providers have an online automatic service for retrieving the PUK if you check on their website,

You enter your mobile number and the PUK code is generated

PUK code (0 left) - Need Code


Hi,it is your sim card which is blocked as you have entered the pin code wrongly 3 times,

It is easily solved by contacting the network provider of your sim and requesting the PUK code for which there should be no charge,

Some networks will have this service available online if your check on their website,you put in your mobile phone number and it will generate the PUK code,

If you are unable to find it on their site you can ring them and they wll be able to assist you with it,

Do not try guessing random codes as after failed attempts at inputting the wrong PUK your simcard will be permanently blocked and need replaced,

Just noticing you say in your question (0 left),is this referring to no attempts left? Have you already tried 10 times to guess the PUK?

If this is the case your simcard is now useless,but your phone is fine,it will work with another simcard,

If it is important that you have the same mobile number you will have to request a new simcard from your provider and they may charge for this
