Question about Cell Phones
The PUK code is a code associated with the SIM card and not with the phone.
You have only two ways to get rid of the PUK code. Either you replace the SIM card , or you call phone provider that issued the sim cadr (eg. At&T, Virgin, Tmobile , Vodafone, Telecom etc.)
PUK means "personal unlocking key" .
The PUK code is asked if you enter a wrong pin 3 times.
You need to call the phone company that released the SIM card, they can retrieve the PUK code from a database for free.
In your case you need to contact Airtel technical support to unlock the SIM. If you have lost the sticker with PUK code, then there is no other way (apart replacing SIM) of getting rid of PUK code.
Note: If you replace the SIM card with a different one, then the phone will not ask for the PUK anymore. The other way is contacting phone company.

Call the Airtel Customer care (Dehli) on one of these numbers:
Direct Customer Care : 198
For Postpaid 9810012345 and
9810198101 for Prepaid.
The best bet is use another working airtel sim card or borrow your friend's phone who is using airtel network.
Tell them your problem and provide them the sim card information like registration information (name, address etc..). They'll tell you the Puk code with the instructions on how to disable it and how to set it.
Thanks for using FixYa.

The default lock code is 12345.
If you changed it and forgot the security code please contacts your device dealer. They will reinstall the software fully and they will bring your mobile to default security code so that you can open your phone.
NOTE: While reinstalling the software all your contacts will be deleted.
This security lock prevents thieves from being able to make use of stolen handsets, that is why it can only be unlocked by authorised service centres.
While reinstall the software, device dealer will ask for your personal details to check whether the mobile belongs to you only. If they are satisfied with your answers they will start the process.
