I turned my samsung freeform off, then turned it back on and completely forgot my code to unlock the phone. how do i reset the password without getting into the actual phone?


You can use puk code to unlock samsung C3050 password, just type any password then your phone will be asking about puk code after you put wrong password in certain of time. Puk code can you found in your sim card paper or you can ask in your network provider. If puk code still can't unlock samsung old password, reflash your phone to default factory reset. Good Luck!

When I turn my phone on it says Enter PUK code. It won't go way!


The PUK Code is not of your mobile it is of your Sim Card. You will get the PUK CODE by contacting your service provider customer care and ask them for the code they will give you the code. Then enter the code in the place where your mobile is asking for it and press OK. then your mobile will say to enter or set PIN CODE set it to whatever you want and Press OK. Now your mobile and sim will be unlocked. Thank you for using fixya and i hope it will help you.

I've nokia express music phone. & idea. wat's my puk code.


There is no universal PUK code available which you key in and get the phone unlocked. So do not try to key in PUK codes which you are not sure of, in an effort to unlock the phone, because keying in the wrong PUK code, 3 or 4 times in a row will permanently deactivate your SIM card.

So to unlock your Nokia's PUK code, you will have to call the Customer Service Helpline of your Network Service Provider, who will ask you for the Registration Number of your SIM card. On giving them the same, your PUK code will be given to you. PUK code also known as the PUC (Personal Unlocking Code) is a feature present in all GSM cell phone.

I've also come across several blogs that mention placing the cell phone's battery in water for about 5 to 10 minutes and then drying it and then on placing it back in the phone, it never asks for a PUK. I feel that is weird. So even if you have heard anything of that sort, please don't do it. It will only do more harm than ANY good.

My LG xenon phone needing my PUK code it wont work


PUK codes are a lock placed on the sim card. You can usually call the customer service line for your provider and they can give you the PUK code or you can have the sim card replaced on a store.

To turn off your security code you must login in your phone menu then disable security feature. But if your phone already locked you can unlock lg neon security code with your puk code from your sim card package. Type any password until your phone asking you to enter puk code then type your puk code and your phone will be unlocked. If you didn;t have that puk code you still can unlock lg phone by asking that puk code from your network provider and they will not take any charges from you.

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.

PUK CODE


HI,

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

your positive rating is Higly appreciated.

thank you,
