Need a free unlocking code for samsung galaxy note 5 United States


No such thing Jacqueline! Someone owns that phone and unless you paid full price, or have been a tab agreement for two years, the carrier still owns it.

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.

Tip

PIN and PUK


Hello,

I have seen a lot of posts here about unblocking a PIN and PUK code.
Hopefully this tip will help Fixya users who experience this problem, at one point in time.

First of all, the PIN and PUK codes are not phone codes, they are SIM card codes.
The PIN (Personal Identification Number) is a code that restricts access to your phone, through the SIM card.
If you insert a SIM card that has no PIN restriction, you will not be asked for the PIN code.
When you enter the wrong PIN more than five times, it will get blocked, and ask you for the PUK code.

The PUK (Personal Unblocking Code) is used to unblock a blocked PIN.
If your PIN is blocked, use your PUK to unblock it.

Tip:

The PIN and PUK being SIM card codes, no one else can provide them to you, not even your phone manufacturer, except your network service provider.
If you dont have your PIN and PUK, call your network service provider customer care and they will provide you with both the PIN and PUK codes, for free.

I hope this tip will help you in case your PIN gets blocked.

Thank you for using Fixya,
Kenneth.

My sim card is blocked wondered how i can unblock them


You need a PUK ( Pin Unblocking Key) code to be able to unblock the counter of you PIN ( Personal Identification Number ) . The code can be found enclose on your sim package .If its not in their,then you have to call your service provider operator and request for that code,or you can go directly in their wireless center for fast approval.

When you already receive the code, just enter it on your mobile that ask for a PUK code,after unlocking it,enter a new PIN code and it will ask to re-enter it again for confirmation.be sure you encode the exact numbers to avoid errors.

Now enjoy using your mobile....

My sim card is rejected as i have entered wrong pin code please help me it was also asking for puck code but i have entered imaginary no.


Hi,

If u have entered a wrong PUK no. less than 10 times, then u can contact customer care and get the PUK unblocking code (its free). Remember each sim card has a different unblocking no.

If you have entered wrong PUK no. 10 times or more, then this SIM card is blocked and will have to be replaced by a new one. You need to visit any airtel franchisee, purchase a new sim, and they will delete your old sim card details and add the details of new sim card into their system. A new sim probably costs around 245/- (i think, though don't remember when i purchased it last). You need to carry old sim card + ID proof + any airtel bill (if postpaid, may get required).

If your connection had been a Postpaid with regular payment history, I would have applied a different approach

Thanks,
