You have to contact your operator to change or reset the PUK. if you set a pin code for your sim and failed to enter the correct pin it will going to ask you to enter your PUK code that normally comes with the Sim card. if you failed to enter the PUK code for 10 times then you really have to contact the operator or you need a new sim.

hope this help

Forgot my PUK code after restarting/


You need to contact your carrier again.

Tip & How-To about Cell Phones
Your phone is asking for a PUK code?

Is your phone asking for a PUK code. PUK = Personal Unlocking Key. Personal Unblocking Key, or PIN Unblocking Key.

This can only come from your cellphone carrier and usually the company that still owns the phone under the agreement. Sometimes it is because you have put another SIM card in it, and they own the phone and need you to use them as carrier to get the price of the phone back, or you are in default of payment, or on a Pay as You Go plan, it is over expired. I can also happen if you have entered the unlock code wrongly three times. This often happens when a phone is stolen or lost and has been found by or sold to someone else who then try and use the phone. Wikipedia A personal unblocking code (PUC), also known as a PIN unlock key (PUK), is used in 3GPP mobile phones to reset a personal identification number (PIN) that has been lost or forgotten.
Most mobile telephones offer the feature of PIN protection. After switching on the phone, if the PIN security function is active, the user is requested to enter a 4-8 digit PIN enabling the phone's non-emergency calling functions. If the wrong PIN is typed in more than three times, either the SIM card, the device, or both become locked. They can be returned to their original unlocked state by entering a PUC, provided by the service operator after verification. If the wrong PUC is entered ten times in a row, the device will become permanently blocked and unrecoverable, requiring a new SIM card. Cellular phone users are therefore advised by most providers to keep their PUC written down in a safe place separate from the device.
The PUC (PUK) is a SIM-specific code assigned and provided by the service provider.
Once you enter the PUK code, you must set a PIN. The PUK and PUK2 are used to unlock the PIN and PIN2 codes respectively if your SIM card is blocked
From Bell
The PIN unblocking key (PUK; sometimes called personal unlocking key) is a master security code for unblocking and resetting the personal identification number (PIN) for your SIM card. For added security, the PUK is unique to your SIM card. If your PIN code is active and you enter it incorrectly three times, your SIM card will be blocked. You won't be able to use your phone, except for emergency calls. You must enter your PUK into your phone to unblock the SIM card. If your SIM card becomes blocked, Contact us to get your PUK.
You may be able to do it from the website or your cellular provider. This is from Orange - T-Mobile in the UK.
Your phone can become blocked in a number of ways - one of them is if you enter your SIM card PIN number incorrectly three times in a row. To unblock your SIM card, you will need to use something called a PUK (Personal Unblocking Key).
Remember that unblocking is different to unlocking. Read more information on unlocking your device.

IT IS SAYING MY PIN IS BLOCKED AND NOW IT'S ASKING FOR A PUK CODE.


Hi

PIN stands for Personal Identification Number. When you switch off your mobile and switch on again it will ask your PIN No. If you enter the PIN No three times wrong then your mobile will ask for the PUK
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.

code from the package that has come with your SIM card Get these codes from SIM package and unlock your mobile phoe.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 centre

Whats the puk code


A PIN Unlock Code (PUC) or PIN Unlock Key (PUK) is used in GSM mobile phones and some smartcards to unblock a blocked card.

Most mobile telephones offer the feature of personal identification number (PIN) protection. After switching on the phone, if the PIN security function is active, the user is requested to enter a 4-8 digit PIN enabling the phone's non-emergency calling functions. If the wrong PIN is typed in more than three times, either the SIM card, the device or both become locked. They can be reverted to their original unlocked state by entering a PUC (PUK), provided by the service operator through verification. If the wrong PUC (PUK) is entered ten times in a row, the device will become permanently blocked and unrecoverable, requiring a new SIM card. Cellular phone users are therefore advised by most providers to keep their PUC (PUK) written down in a safe place separate from the device.

The PUC (PUK) is a SIM-specific code assigned by the service provider. It is impossible to guess and enter it; thus, if you do not know your PUC (PUK) and are prompted for it, you should get it from your service provider.

How to unblock puk


PUK stands for PIN UNLOCK CODE. You usually get this prompt when you have entered the SIM card PIN three times. Unfortunately, it is not a universal number. You can get the PUK from your phone provider. Be careful not to exceed more than 7 times in entering this key. Because it can cause permanent block on your SIM card.

Good luck!

I forgot my puk cord


Hi,
To know the PUK code you have to contact your SIM card network provider's customer care. They only can give you the code as it is specific to your mobile SIM card and Network operator. Dont attempt to input wrong PUK code more than 3 times(caries upto 10) as this may block your entire SIM card and you have to get duplicate SIM card only.

I hope this is helpful to you.
please rate the solution
Thanks

My grandaughter has done something to her phone. it keeps showing puk blocked, how can i unblock it. The phone is a LG u880 model.


Hi,
If anybody tries to enter PIN code wrongly more than 3 times, then the PIN code will get blocked and it will prompt you to enter PUK code. To obtain this PUK code, please call to your mobile network operator customer care. Using this you can unlock your SIM card. If you attemp to enter wrong PUK code more than 10 times, then your SIM card will be blocked and you cannot unlock it anymore. You have to get the duplicate SIM card only.

Please provide your rating to the solution
Thanks

Puk code


After a PIN is entered 3 times incorrectly, the phone will then prompt for the PUK (PIN Unlock Key). After 10 incorrect entries of the PUK, the SIM (Subscriber Identity Module) card will be rendered unusable (PUK Blocked). At this point, the SIM card will need to be replaced.

Contact your service provider and explain your situation. Do not attempt to enter the PUK unless you are prompted to do so by the representative. Most local service centers can do this for you, sometimes for a fee for the services and the SIM card if it needs replaced.
