About PUK code


A PUK code (Pin Unlock Key) is required when you enter an incorrect PIN (Personal Identification Number) 3 times. After entering the wrong PIN 3 times, the card will be locked and you will need to get a PUK code from your service provider to unlock it.

Once your PUK has been send to you, you should enter it into your phone to set a new PIN code, that will be four zeros "0000"

Note: If the wrong PUK code is entered ten times, the SIM card becomes invalid and you will need to get a new SIM Card. The phone will display "PUK blocked call operator". that will cost you money.

So please be carefull before entering PIN and check twice.

Best regards

Hi my sons phone is showing enter PUK code! can you help or do I have to contact his network/supplier? thankyou


PUK code stands for pin unlock code. It comes when you enter wrong code for your pin code three times. It is a security feature of your sim card to avoid unauthorised access.

When you enable pin code on your sim card, your phone automatically asks for pin no. when switched on. If the pin is entered wrongly 3 times. It locks the sim, and asks for PUK code. The PUK code needs to be obtained from your provider. If you enter PUK wrongly 10 times, your sim card will be permanently blocked and you will need to obtain a new sim card. Hence kindly contact your network for the right puk code.

What is 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.
A PUK code is required if a GSM SIM card was locked after entering the wrong PIN code three times in a row. Entering a wrong PUK code ten times in a row disables the SIM card permanently. Both the PIN and the PUK codes are supplied by the operator, but only the PIN code can be changed by the user.

Yh need me puk number


What is a PUK code? A PUK code (Pin Unlock Key) is required when you enter an incorrect PIN 3 times. After entering the wrong PIN 3 times, the card will be locked and you will need to get a PUK code from your phone company to unlock it.
What should I do if my phone says Enter PUK Code? How can I get a PUK Code? You can receive your phone's PUK code by calling your phone company Customer Care.. Once your PUK has been received, it will need to be entered into your phone to set a new PIN code. If the wrong PUK code is entered ten times in a row, the SIM card becomes invalid and you will need to purchase a new SIM Card. The phone will display "PUK blocked call operator".

I've tired to set the PIN code for my Nokia 6085 phone but I cannot. I've entered the PUK code but now it says, "Enter new PIN code:" What do I do? I've entered a code I wanted and other ones on my...


HOLD ON!
You may enter wrong PIN three (3) times only. After that your PIN will be blocked! To unblock, you need PUK. You can only enter wrong PUK ten (10) times. (This is as documented) After entering correct PUK, you will be asked for NEW PIN.

So, when it says "PIN blocked. Enter PUK code", you must enter the PUK. If you correctly enter the PUK, it will asked for new PIN, by asking "Enter new PIN code:". Enter anything you want as your PIN. You will be asked to enter it twice (two times).
From what I read from your post, you have done correctly, but you don't want to enter new PIN. There is no way SIM card/phone will use old PIN. The device doesn't know your PIN. So, you have to enter new PIN.
