Question about Cell Phones
The PIN (personal identification number) or PUK (personal unblocking key) are security features provided by your network service.
The PIN and PUK are provided on your SIM package, and can be changed many times. The basic purpose of these codes is to provide a security.These codes are normally used to prevent your SIM card from unauthorized use.
You can get this type of security by enabling the PIN check option in your mobile phone. If this feature is enabled, the phone requires your PIN each time it is switched on.There may be different solutions for your problem.
If you have not changed the original PIN of your SIM then you can get easily this code from the package that has come with your SIM card. Get these codes from SIM package and unlock your mobile phone.But if you have changed your PIN and now have forgotten it then there is also a way to resolve it. When you give an incorrect PIN three times to your mobile phone it will block your SIM card, then in this case you have to provide a PUK given to you by network provider. And you can get your PUK any time by calling at the help line number of your network service center.

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 is unique for each mobile phone model.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.
code prevents thieves from being able to
make use of stolen handsets, that is why it can only be given by the service
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 money to
get the PUK code
