This problem is very common and most users think that it's related to phone, which is not true, this is only with your sim card and is for security reason. We can't use software or hardware or other tricks or methods to unlock it, the only solution is from the Service Operator/Network Operator.
If you keep entering random codes/unknown numbers several times, your sim card will be rejected and will not be usable anymore.

Your only solution is to call the service provider (Network operator's customer care), ask them to give you your puk code, they'll promptly give it to you after few inquiries to make sure you are the true owner of the sim card. (there's no charge as well, and if you call from the same network' sim card to the customer care, you'll not spend/pay a penny).

There's no other alternatives, or no other options that you can get the code, so don't play around, rather make a call to the customer care of the sim card network operator and get the code.

I wish you good luck.

Thanks for using FixYa.

Please call the Customer Care of your Network Operator (sim card provider), they will tell your the code. There's no other way or no means to get the code except from the Service Operator. They might ask your few questions related to the Sim Card, like your name or your address, tell them promptly and they will give you the puk code for your sim card. You will also be assisted on how to disable the security settings.
(Note: this is not your phone's problem, it's your sim card problem. After entering wrong codes/numbers several times, your sim card will not be valid anymore and will be rejected.)
Note: if you keep entering random/unknown numbers/codes, the sim card will be locked and will be rejected. It'll not be usable anymore. Good luck.

You will need to call your cell service provider and tell them you need the PUK code, They will need the long number that is located on the sim card to unlock it for you.

I need a PUK code to unlock my phone i still have some trials left to unlock it please help!

PUK Code can be obtained only from the Service Operator, there is nothing you can do except call your service operator (Customer care of your sim card operator). Since it's a unique code for your sim card and is set by the Service Operator, you have to call them and request the code. Please don't try to enter anymore codes, your sim card will be rejected, means it will be automatically damaged. You will no longer be able to use it and you'll loose all your data saved on it. To know more about the PUK code, please follow this LINK and refer to the article I'd published.
Let me know if you need further help.
Good Luck.

Please review this short article:

Please don't call me (us) the fool ... we 'fools' know our PUK or how to get information on it. We are unpaid volunteers working here to try to help you. Be nice.

Please don't try to guess the Personal Unlocking Key on your phone ... it is impossible to guess within the ten times allowed by your telephone before it is damaged. The code is free from your service provider.

Good morning. After turning on my phone today i was asked for my pin code. As i have never changed it from the manufacturers pre-loaded one i was guessing and have consequently runout of guesses and am now...

Hey buddy,

You can get the PUK code from your network service provider. Call their customer care number from another phone having the same service provider to get the PUK. You'll be asked some routine identifying questions.

Also, you can get the code from the below-given web sites -

Hi, In this please do contact your service provider and inform them that the PIN is blocked and the phone is asking for a PUK code for your SIM card and they would provide you with the information once you help them with the SIM card number located on the SIM card itself.
Thank you for your time and best wishes for your effort.

My sim-card is puk-locked how do i unlock it

Hi, 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.

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.

Good luck!!!

My nokia 6030 is loked and asks for a PUK and i dont know it what do i do

PUK stands for Pin Unlock Code, and has to be entered if youve locked your SIM by repeatedly entering the wrong PIN code. If youre asked for a PUK code, youve had more goes at guessing your SIM card PIN code than youre allowed. Youll need to phone your network provider Customer Services for your PUK code to unlock the SIM. For security reasons, its only the network operator that can legally provide.

Unblocking Key PUK. You can find your PUK code on the paper that originally accompanied the SIM card.If you no longer have your PUK code, you can get it also by calling 6030 from a Proximus mobile phone or 078 05 6030 from a fixed line or a different mobile network. Select option 2, then option 4 and follow the instructions. Your PUK code will be communicated to you. In order to guarantee your
