A request for a PUK code ("Personal Unlocking Key") will appear on your phone if your SIM card PIN code is entered 3 consecutive times incorrectly.

Your SIM card will then become "PUKed" or Blocked. This is a security measure to protect your service.

You need to call the Customer Service department of your cell phone provider and they will give you the PUK code which will unblock your SIM card.

Master reset for 02 sony xperia E1


if it is locked via PIN wrong use then you will need the PUK

The PUK is asked when you (or someone else) tried to introduce the PIN number 3 times incorrectly.
To get the PUK look for the card that came with your sim card that has the PIN number. In it you will find also the PUK number. If you don't have this card anymore, contact your operator and be ready to have some form of ID with you

Actually my sim is lock andasking for puk number


To unlock your cellular phone you will need to enter the code. This code is just a calculation of IMEI number of your phone. To find your phones IMEI number -type *#06# into your phone or look under the phone battery.

There are different online services that will calculate the unlock code for your IMEI number.
I can recommend this one (cheap and reliable).

I would not suggest to share your IMEI number on free forums like this.

Puk lock are from Sim cards not phone...

To unlock your Puk lock, first get your Sim park where you cut out the Sim card from.

Check on the Sim park you will see where they number on it..

It will ask for a your Pin number. type in your Pin and it will request that you re-type your pin.

After typing it again, you can make use of your Sim card again.take care.

My cell phone is lock but i cant unlock it its look like its puk


HI, 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!!!

PUK locked


Contact your network provider and ask if they can give you the PUK unlock. For now don't use your sim coz it can be permanently be locked if you try to unlocked it without the correct PUK code.

But if you still have the paper slip of your sim it have the puk code. Or the plastic card its originally attached just look into PUK if it have.

Phone lock


You should have a PUK number, on the plastic card where your sim card was. Enter 2-3 more pin numbers and your phone will lock itself and request the PUK number... tap it in and hey! presto.
PUK number is available from your service provider.
