I dont no my puk code .. what do i ? my phone wont let me get out of it my mum is gonna kill me how do i sort it out ?


PUK code and PIN Code:

Please dont try more than 3 times.If you try more than 3 times the Sim will get locked.And it will ask for PIN code.Both these PUK and PIN code can be given only by the network service provider. Please call the network service provider of your mobile.And ask him to provide the PUK code or PIN code.He will ask you some basic details like name,date of birth for his verification.And he will provide you the PUK and PIN code.This is done for free of cost.

Please do rate the solution if the issue is resolved or post a comment for further assistance.

Thank you for using fixya have a nice day:-)

My son keep putting in numbers and the puk is locked sos only how do i unlock this

You have to contact the customer care of your service provider and ask for PUK code. They might ask you for identification which may include your personal details and also the long number present on the side opposite to your sim. Give these details and they will give you your PUK code

My phone keeps asking for a puk code? And sos

it is possible that your sim card provider has locked your account because of several missed attempt to unlock the sim on a new phone. all you need to do is call your telco provider and ask help to reset your PUK code. Goodluck!

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.)

PUK means "personal unlocking key" .

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

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 related 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.ssaa

Blocked PUK

above solution is absolutely wrong

if pin (3 attempts) blocked it asks for PUK- this is u can get from network operator just by a call or through IVRS.

if PUK (10 attempts) blocked (call SOS appears). the sim cant be used any more. contact the nework operators shop, handover ur sim so that you get a new sim with same mobile no. this costs Re. 112 to 150

Puk code

puk code is an eight digit code
you will get this code whrn you buy the simcard.
if you have the packet of your simcard you will get it in there.
Or change your simcard.
