SOURCE: PUK code

The Puk number depends on the pin lock on the sim, the phone will still work with a different Sim card.

To unlock the Puk code you need to call the contact number for the service provider for your Sim. Alternatively you can unlock the PUK code at a local shop for a small fee, £10 or £20 in UK.

To unlock PUK, call the company that branded your Sim card.

For example , f you are in UK, and have lost vodafone or Orange pin, and puk code kicked in, then contact is below.


Vodafone Contact us

Vodafone UK - Contact us

use google to find contact number for your sim card fone company in your area. That is the only way to unlock PUK for free, and it always work.

to enable access to your phone again, please contact your cell phone carrier, they will provide you with a PUK code for your phone to unblock it. They will ask you information about your account(Name, phone type, password,etc.)

Good Luck

SOURCE: unknown puk code

You can obtain a PUK code from your carrier easily. (AT&T or T-Mobile...) Just called them up and ask them for the PUK code. After you input the correct PUK code, then the phone will ask you to put a 4 digit code. So have that ready

SOURCE: i forgot my puk code for lg kf600

PUK code stands for Personal Unlock key and has nothing to do with the box it is a code  for your SIM in case you enter wrong PIN three times contact your service provider and ask for your unique PUK code which will be given to you after their enquiry. Do Not enter random nos. till you get your PUK code as it will block your SIM card and you`ll have to buy a new one.

I went to the pin code unlock thing and it was off so i turned it on cuz i wanted to have a pin code so i put a pin code and confirmed it and got it right and then now it's telling me that it's blocked so...


Hi the PUK code is the security code for the sim card and not any code to do with the phone, all you need to do to get the PUK code is call your service provider.
your service provider wont charge for giving you the code as the code belongs to you, all you need to tell them is your phone number or if you dont know that then the number printed on the sim card, they will then provide you with the 10digit PUK code for free over the phone.
this will then allow you to access the sim card.

The only place you can get the PUK code from is your service provider as their is no where else that keeps these codes, if you still have the card the sim card was attatched to then it will be written on their but if you no longer have this then the only way your going to get the code is by calling your service provider, they wont charge you for this as the code belongs to you,

you do have another option open to you though, if you dont need that sim card then you can go out and get another sim card and when you get given a new sim card you will get given the unique PUK code it will be written on the card the sim card is attatched to.

let me know if you need further assistance ok.

plz rate this solution as i have a whole page of unrated posts, thanks,.,.,.

I dont know my puk code


Do not enter any code into your phone. The PUK code is a code that your service provider has and not one that you would know or have in your manual. If your an AT&T customer they do provide PUK on their website. If you have entered in a code and the phone is now saying PUK blocked you'll have to go to store to purchase a new SIM card, you may want to call your service provider as well, they may be able to give you a credit for the new card. Hope this helped.

Dont know where to put puk code.


Best thing to do is ring your network supplier.They are the ones that give you the PUK code! normally.

They can open up your phone to take other sims, i.e a total unlock. But they will take you through the process.

Hope it helps!

PUK Code


PUK means "personal unlocking key" .

The PUK code is asked if you enter a wrong pin 3 times.

You need to call your phone service company, they can retrieve the puk code from a database for free.

In your case you need to contact your SIM card phone provider technical support to unlock the SIM.


The PIN and PUK are related to the SIM card, not to the phone.

If you replace the SIM card with a different one, then the phone should not ask for the PUK anymore.
