Code to unblock puk codes


to my knowledge, this cannot happen without someone actually locking the sim, so you may want to contact your employer, but just in case your employer doesn't know whats happening,
here are instructions to find your puk code for att, if you have a different carrier, contact their customer support for further instruction

Obtain a PUK Code

Instructions: When the error message "ENTER PUK CODE" is shown on the screen of the device:
  1. Log into myAT&T.
  2. Select Wireless from the myAT&T tab at the top of the page.
  3. Select Phone/Device.
  4. Click Unblock SIM Card.
  5. A new page will open, containing the PUK code for your phone. Enter the code on your phone's screen to unblock the SIM and create a new PIN.
Unblock SIM Card
  1. Enter the eight-digit PUK code on the phone, then press OK/Yes.
    Note: Some Motorola phone users need to enter **05* if "enter PUK" is not already displayed. After entering **05*, enter the eight-digit PUK code and press OK.
  2. Select a new PIN code, then press OK/Yes.
  3. Re-enter the PIN code, then press OK/Yes.
  4. If the codes were entered successfully, the phone is ready for use.
If the incorrect PUK code is entered 10 times in a row, the SIM card becomes permanently locked and a new SIM card must be purchased. If the device is requesting PUK2, call Customer Care at 800-331-0500.

... good luck

I dont the puk number to my tracfone


When your LG TracFone prompts you for the PUK code, do not enter any more codes. Even if you enter the correct SIM PIN, the phone will not accept it. You also cannot use an old PUK code to unlock the SIM. The PUK code is randomly generated by the carrier's network when the SIM PIN locks. You will need to get the PUK code from Tracfone. Contact TracFone customer care at 800-867-7183 for the correct code. You can contact customer care from the phone with the locked SIM card, but it's best to call from another line so the representative can walk you through the process of entering the code.

sincerely. God bless you

Phone has come up with PUK Lock on it. It needs a PUK code but to my knowledge it has never had one of these before. Turning the phone off & then on again doesn't do anything.


Its not the phone, but the sim that requires a PUK code. If you check your original sim starter pack, you would see your PUK code printed on it. I want you to know that its quite different fron the four digit pin code. Enter this puk code to unlock your sim. But if you cant find your starter pack, then I want to believe you know the number of you customer care, you could ask one or two people if you dont. Then, when you know the number, use some one else's line, but of your same network, perhaps a friend's, and call the customer care agents. Tell them your sim is requesting a PUK code which you dont have access to. Give them your phone number, and they should sort out the rest for you.
I hope this helps you.
Have a nice day.

Dear reader, i need puk number as my sim blocked and need puk number to enter but unfortunately i lost pin and puk numbers..here is my sim number will you please send me puk number 899660186001043227


hi,

You can locate your PUK usually it is included in your sim card kit when you purchase it. if you lost it already, this is the last thing we can do. Contact your operator customer care or visit them and ask for your PUK code and they are very glad to help you. they will ask you several questions pertaining to your account to verify if you are the real owner. You can also get it on-line on most operator if they have this service at their website.

Once you receive your PUK code, you will need to enter it into your phone to set a new PIN code.

Don't forget to rate me OK! thanks...

Note: If you enter the wrong PUK code 10 times in a row, your SIM card will be invalidated, and you will need to purchase a new SIM card. The phone will display the following error: "PUK blocked call operator."

A PUK (PIN Unlock Key) code is required to unlock SIM cards that have become locked following three successive incorrect PIN entries. If your SIM card becomes locked, you will need to get a PUK code from your SIM card Customer Care.

regards,

John

I forgot the puk code of a retailer sim smart


Hi,
To get PUK code please contact your service provider.they will provide you the default PUK so that you can open your phone.
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
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.
If you need further help, let me know.
Good Luck.
Thanks for using FixYa.
