Keeps sayin insert sim card ad its blocked my sim card so i cnt use it


Dear brother:

Hi
PUK code is called as PERSONNAL UNBLOCKING KEY.
Your phone will ask for PUK code when you entered the PIN code wrongly several times depending upon the mobile make. The mobile asks for PUK code so that unauthorized persons do not use your mobile for wrong cause.
To get PUK code please contact your service provider through phone or go directly to their office. They will provide you the PUK code for your mobile. The PUK code for mobile phone.so that you can open your phone. When you planning to call your service provider you cannot use your mobile as it is fully locked. Please use some other mobile with same network to call your service provider.
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
DONOT enter the PUK code several times wrongly,It will block your sim card permanently.
This PUK code is FREE. You no need to pay any sum to get the PUK code
Thank You.

Hey..!,do you know samsung sgh x700 fdn mode puk code....?



These directions are for an AT and T phone, but other than that would be the same for any carrier.

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 phone carrier to unlock your SIM card.

You can obtain your phone's PUK code from your carrier in one of these ways:

Log in to Your account.online

Use a Technical Support Chat

Contact your carriers Customer Care

Get Your Phone's PUK Code Online

Go to the Phone/Device page.

From the My Phone/Device screen, select the Unblock SIM Card link under the My Make & Model heading.

The Unblock SIM screen will display your PUK code and will give you instructions for unblocking your SIM Card.

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

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

Forgot puk code cant get in is there possibly a way to get in


Hi, the PUK code is the security code for the sim card and not for the phone, now you would have been given this code on the pack the sim card was attatched to, but chances are you no longer have this anymore, so the only other way you can get this is by calling your service provider, all you need to do is give them either the phone number of the sim card or give them the number written on the back of the sim card, their is no other way of getting this code and it cant be guessed as its between 8 and 11 digits long and its totally random, they will give you this code for free over the phone so give them a call and your phone will be working again.

if you guess the code and get it wrong more than 5 times then it will lock the phone and make the sim card scrap so dont keep guessing as you just wont get the right code as it is totally random.

if how ever you dont need to use the sim card thats asking for the code then what you can do is go out and buy a new sim card and put this in your phone, this new sim shouldnt ask for the PUK code but if it does then you will have the code with the new sim card.

now if the phone is asking for the PUK code because you have entered the wrong security code on the phone more than 5 times then this means even if you get the PUK code this will only then get the phone asking for its security code again, but if the phone never asked for this first and its just asking for the PUK code then once you enter the code you will have access to the phone and the details on the sim card ok

the reason the phone asks for the PUK code is usually down to the wrong pin number been entered for the phones security code, so if this is the case then the phone locks the sim card to prevent any1 from getting the data on it so if your phone was stolen and you had the phone protected by a security code then if someone found it and entered the wrong code more than 5 times then this will then block the sim card until the PUK code has been entered correctly, its all just a safety feature to prevent the sim card been used and stop your data been stolen.

let me know how you get on or if you need further assistance ok

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

My daughter put a pin code in her phone,we have tried the puk code supplied by o2 but was unsuccessful,we niw need the phone lock code


Phone lock code is totally different from a PIN or a PUK.

The default Phone lock code for most of the sony Ericsson is "0000" (Four Zeroes)

If you are looking for a phone lock you can try putting the above code. If you have mistyped the PIN and then the PUK then the SIM card itself is corrupted and in that case you will have to replace the card.

I am a user of Reliance CDMA , the SIM has been locked and its asking for the PUK Code.. What is the PUK Code?


A PUK code is a "Pin unlock code" it is used in mobile phones. This code unlocks the SIM card to allow access to your mobile phone. If you enter this code incorrectly several times, then the SIM card will be locked permanently and you will need to purchase another SIM card from your mobile phone provider.
The PUK code is with the documentation that came with your SIM card, if you no longer have the documentation, then you need to contact your phone service provider and ask them for the PUK code.

My nokia phone model N95-1 need a PUK code to acces on my phone. I really dont know how to find that PUK code.


Please call the costumer care of your sim card network operator (service provider). They will give you the number, note that if you enter random numbers several times, it'll damage the sim card and will not be usable anymore, So i suggest you not to do anything with it till you get the number from the Service Provider. No one can unlock it, it's saved on the database of the Network Operator. They will give you the number and will instruct you how to do it. Good luck. Thanks for using FixYa

Tocco lite phone freeze deactivate fail


here is some info on PUK codes:

try taking battery and SIM out waiting 15 seconds and powering cell back on.

In your case I believe your SIM is now FROZEN or locked. You mostlikely will need to purchase a new SIM card.

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 service provider to unlock it.

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".

Pin locked


PUK code, (personal unlocking key).

This is SIM card related / specific. If you take the SIM card out of the phone, the phone will work with another sim card.


The puk comes up when the pin code has been entered wrong 3 times. To get the puk code for your sim card, you have to call the service provider of that sim card. They are the only ones who can provide you with the right puk code for that sim card.


The puk code may also have came with the documentation of the sim card, if its a prepaid card the Puk code comes on the documents or on the box of the product.


if your unable to obtain the puk code, get a new SIM card.


Also entering the PUK code wrong too many times will eventually ruin the sim card forcing you to buy or contact your service provider for a new sim card.


There are no puk code calculators or anything that we can do about it, you can buy premium assistance and you will get this same response. There is no other solution.


You have to contact the phone service provider of that sim card or replace the SIM card.
