How do I unlock my phone when its on puk code and I don't have the password?


Mobile PUK codes - how do I find my PUK code?
If you have a PIN number on your SIM card as an extra security measure, you'll need to type the PIN number in each time you turn on your phone. If you do this wrong 3 times, the SIM card will be locked and you will be unable to use the phone. In this situation, you will need your PUK code to unlock the SIM.
WHAT IS A PUK CODE?
These codes have been around quite a long time actually and PUK stands for 'PIN Unlock Key'. It's a unique code that is linked to your specific SIM card and is usually 8 digits long. Some phones may ask for a PUC code instead. This stands for 'PIN Unlock Code' and is exactly the same thing as a PUK Code.

WHERE DO I FIND MY PUK CODE?
The PUK code is unique to your SIM card, so you can only get this from your mobile network. Sometimes they will give you this when you first get the SIM card, but not all networks do this. If you cannot find it, give your mobile network a call and they will be able to give you the PUK code after you have answered some security questions.
To make things a bit easier for you, here are the contact details for the major networks:

WHAT DO I DO WITH THE PUK CODE?
Once you have got the PUK code from your network, you will need to enter it into your phone. A notification will usually pop up, prompting you to enter the PUK code as soon as you turn your mobile on, so just follow the instructions onscreen to proceed.
As soon as your phone is unlocked, you may be asked to enter a new SIM PIN number, but this can be turned off in the settings menu of the phone once it's fully unlocked.
WARNING!
Do not try and guess your PUK code. If you enter it wrong 10 times, the SIM card will be permanently locked and you will need to get a new one from your network provider. There may be a charge for a new SIM card and you might be stuck without your phone for a couple of days while they send it out.

Need unlock code for huawei


PUK stands for Personal Unblocking Key. This is a unique eight-digit code specific to your SIM card. This is required when the PIN number to unlock your mobile phone is entered incorrectly 3 times. You are then given 10 attempts to enter your PUK code. If an incorrect PUK code is entered after the 10th attempt, you will block your SIM card permanently and will require a new SIM card from your mobile phone provider.
PUK codes can be obtained through the following ways - The PUK code is in your SIM card documentation Starter Pack. If you do not have this then - Please contact your phone service provider.
Your cell phone service provider can give you the PUK code once you give them your account details and they have confirmed your identity. For details to obtain the PUK code for the SIM card, please click on this link and follow my instructions.

Wat is a puk code and how do i get mine? i was trying to put a lock on my phone and now it wont do anyhing when i turn it on apart from ask for a puk code?


These directions are for an AT and T phone, but other than that, are 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

I want to know my pin & puk code easily


If you have forgotten your PIN number;
  • Telephone your cell phone service provider and ask for your PUK code. (They are the only ones who can give it to you as it's the SIM card that locks rather than the phone.)
  • Enter a wrong PIN number 3 times and your SIM card will lock (if it's not already locked)
  • Turn off your phone and then turn it on again.
  • When you turn it on enter the PUK code. It will ask you for a new PIN. Enter a new PIN number and that will be the PIN you use from then on.
Keep the PUK code safe somewhere as you could need it again if you forget the PIN again.

Need code & steps to unblock puc code on cell phone


You need to phone your cell phone service provider for the PUK code. This is because it's the SIM card that locks rather than the phone and the service provider is the only one who can give you the PUK.

Once you've received the PUK you simply try to turn on the cell phone. When it says sim locked you enter the PUK code. This will clear the previous PIN number and you'll be asked to enter the new PIN.

Keep the PUK code safe as it can be used again anytime your phone gets locked.

Lephone a1 password forgot please help


If it's your pin number you forgot, phone your service provider and get your PUK code. Write it down and check with them that you have it right. There are 2 PUK codes, one for PIN 1 and one for PIN 2.

When you have the PUK code, enter any wrong pin 3 times and the phone will lock.
When the phone is locked turn it off and then on again. It will tell you that the sim card is locked and ask for the PUK code. Enter the PUK and it will then ask for your new PIN. Enter a new code and it is now changed.

What is the PUK unlock code for the LG Neon?


the puk code is part of a sim lock. most phones have two locks a phone lock and a sim lock. the puk code comes from incorrectlly entering the sim unlock code too many times. this can be fixed in about 2 minutes but you need to get the sim puk code from your carrier i.e. att, or tmobile. the when you get the pin you want to enter **05*(enter the puk code you were given)*(your new pin of your choice)*(the pin you choose again)# after that your phone will say unlocked besure to test this by turning your phone of and on when it asks you for the pin it will no be the pin you chose, i hope this helps!!!

you have to get the puk code from your service provider, just call customer care and tell them that you need it and they will give it to you, if you enter in the wrong code 10 times then it will permanently lock your phone, if the puks they give you dont work then you will have to get a new sim
