Question about Cell Phones
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

Unfortunately, if your phone is only showing you the screen that displays THAT particular message (PUK code is blocked, please contact your service provider.), then you're in the same situation I'm in. I've contacted Net10 and spoke with someone in Tech Support and the solution they gave was to have my SIM card replaced with a new one they would send to me by mail. I laughed at the woman I was speaking with on the phone and told her that this will be the last time I lose EVERY bit of information on my phone (i.e.:personal reminders, text messages, personal downloads/files, and most of all, every single phone number (that I never bothered to make a backup copy of), because of a "defective SIM card" THEY sold me! Not once...not twice...but three times!!! After that, I hung up on her. So now I'm searching The Internet for another possible solution and if by chance I come across something that does the trick, I'll be sure to put it up in a new post. =]

Hello and Welcome to FixYa!
You don't need to worry at all, the PIN and PUK codes are all Service Provider dependent (SIM), so all you have to so is to call your Service Providers and ask them for the code.
They will first authenticate few things about your, and will happily provider you the code in return.
I guess, you have a clear picture now,

Hi what the PUK code is is its the security for the sim card and all you need to do is contact your service provider and give them the phone number or sim card number off the back of the sim card and tell them you need a PUK code, they will tell you the code over the phone for free and this will then let you use that sim card in your phone.
the other option you have is to go and get another sim card thats accepted by your phone if your phone only works with one network then you need to get a sim card for that network, the phone should then not ask for the PUK code but if it does just call the service provider and ask them for it, they wont charge for this and it will then solve your problem

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