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

My phone has a locked sim it says enter puk code


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 is unique for each mobile phone model.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.

This PUK code prevents thieves from being able to make use of stolen handsets, that is why it can only be given by the service provider only.


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 money to get the PUK code

Thank You.

NOKIA 5130 PUK CODE


  • If the PIN code is entered incorrectly multiple times, your phone may request a PUK (Personal Unblocking Key) code. The PUK code is an 8-digit code provided by your operator or service provider.
  • The service provider will confirm your identification and give you the PUK code.

    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".

    How to unblock a puk code?


    PUK stands for Personal Unblocking Key, and it is a unique identificative code to prevent theft, or unauthorized users from using your SIM.
    Even if it comes with the phone, PUK code is associated to SIM card, not to the phone.
    When you input wrong SIM card pin three times , the phone will ask the PUK code.
    Usually PUK is printed on a sticker inside phone box.
    If you have lost your PUK code you will need to call the company that provides you the phone service when you bought the phone (eg. Vodaphone, Orange, 3, Telecom etc.).
    The only alternative is going to a phone shop, they will call the phone company , get PUK and unlock your SIM.

    Some phones have also an unlock code, but this is not called PUK, if phone asks for PUK you need to call phone company.
    There is no way to get PUK straight from the phone.
    If phone is locked with Phone Lock Code go to a local phone shop, they will connect it to a computer and get the code.
    Common phone default unlock codes are 0000 for Sony Erikkson, and 1234 for Nokia.





    you have to ask your service provider for PUK. Personal Unlocking Code (PUK) is needed when 3 entry of wrong security had been made. You can ask Globe's customer care no (it is call free) from another Globe sim . Operator online will ask you 2-3 question to determine your identity and provide you PUK. There is no another way to get PUK as it is providers fixed code.

    I need PUK code and new pin code


    The PUK code is related to the SIM card, not to the phone. If the SIM card is different from the one originally provided with the phone the PUK code won't work.

    When you lose the PUK code, the only way to retrieve the code is by calling the phone company that released the card inside the phone.

    An alternative way to get rid of the PUK code is by using a different SIM card.

    Regards.

    I Need puk code for my sony ericsson k220i model


    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 will not ask for the PUK anymore.
