My phone is nokia 1100 puk code plz send me the puk


Hello,

let me start first by telling your the meaning of PUK code. It means "Personal Unblocking Code".

Just has the names personal implies, it means it is a personal code that now one else should know except you. So if I know the code then it means it is no more personal.

What I am trying to say is that the code can only be give to you by your service provider. Your service provider who are the manufacturers of the line you are using are the only ones that has the PUK code to your line.

You can get to your service provider through phone by calling them. Calling your service provider should be toll free.

Your service provider will ask you some questions concerning your line in order to confirm that you are the owner of the line before they give out the PUK code. The questions would be something like; "When did you make the last call on your phone?", "what was the last number you dialed?" etc. These questions varies from one service provider to the other.

Buy now, I believe it is clear how to get your PUK code. If you are not satisfied or you still don't understand, please let me know so that I may help you further....

Regards.

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...

What does puk blocked mean?


Hi.

PUK means "personal unlocking key" .

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

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.)


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 linked 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.

I need the puk code for samsung gravity please


Hi,

To get your PUK code, if your phone is using a SIM Card, Check the SIM card Pack and you will see your PUK code there. But if you don't have a SIM card pack, you can get the PUK code from your service provider.

Call the customer care line of your service provider using another phone, request for your PUK code and it will be given to you. Note that your service provider will ask you some few questions about your line in order to be sure you are the real owner.

Note that your service provider alone is the only one that can give you your PUK code because it's only your service provider that has it.

I need a puk code for my nokia 2610 phone


Hi, PUK code is a unique code for each SIM card and will be provided by your service provider.
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.
Enter the PUK number in your cell phone and you’ll be able to access your cell phone as before.
