Hi.

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.

Regards.

Ginko.

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.

Hi

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.

Thank You

How can i get my puk number


Dear User,

PUK code is a SIM specific code assigned by your service provider. No way you can guess & enter it. So, when it asks for the PUK code, don't do anything, get the PUK code from your service provider. Airtel has a easier way of getting PUK code. For getting PUK code of a Airtel number, send PUKPhoneNumber to toll free number 121. You can make use of any other Airtel number to send this message since your SIM might have been blocked already.
If the above method doesn't works or your service provider is not Airtel, call to customer care using any other mobile phone which uses the same service provider. They will ask some details about you to make sure you are the owner of the SIM card. Questions might include your billing address, email ID, numbers you recently called or messaged etc. They might even ask you number printed on the SIM card, so be prepared with all details before calling them. Once you get the PUK code, enter it into the phone & your phone will return to normal.

Regards,

What is the puk code of nokia 3110c sim no 03222371504 fast fast plz plz


Few people use PIN locking system to lock their phone to avoid un-authorised access. Though this is a good option, it pisses you off sometime. Three wrong entry of PIN code will result in SIM blocking. Once SIM gets blocked, phone starts asking PUK code to enter. If you again enter wrong code for three times, SIM gets completely blocked. You have to walk into your service provider outlet to get a replacement SIM card.

Airtel has a easier way of getting PUK code. For getting PUK code of a Airtel number, send PUK<space>PhoneNumber to toll free number 121.

My sim card is rejected as i have entered wrong pin code please help me it was also asking for puck code but i have entered imaginary no.


Hi,

If u have entered a wrong PUK no. less than 10 times, then u can contact customer care and get the PUK unblocking code (its free). Remember each sim card has a different unblocking no.

If you have entered wrong PUK no. 10 times or more, then this SIM card is blocked and will have to be replaced by a new one. You need to visit any airtel franchisee, purchase a new sim, and they will delete your old sim card details and add the details of new sim card into their system. A new sim probably costs around 245/- (i think, though don't remember when i purchased it last). You need to carry old sim card + ID proof + any airtel bill (if postpaid, may get required).

If your connection had been a Postpaid with regular payment history, I would have applied a different approach

Cell phone asking puk code no


dear fren,
only the network service provider can give u the puk code.
if u r having the airtel connection, u need to call the customer care from any mobile number of airtel, talk to customer care executive, he will ask u to give the sim card number, a 16 digit number written on the inner side of the sim, then the customer care executive will tell u the puk number.
