Needed PUK SIM CODE TO UNLOCK MY SIM CARD MODEL # U615 2NA QUATM WHT /SIM CARD #8901 4102 2783 1839 8793


this tells you everything you need to know about PUK Codes

Your phone is asking for a PUK code?
Is your phone asking for a PUK code. PUK = Personal Unlocking Key. Personal Unblocking Key, or PIN Unblocking Key.

This can only come from your cellphone carrier and usually the company that still owns the phone under the agreement. Sometimes it is because you have put another SIM card in it, and they own the phone and need you to use them as carrier to get the price of the phone back, or you are in default of payment, or on a Pay as You Go plan, it is over expired. I can also happen if you have entered the unlock code wrongly three times. This often happens when a phone is stolen or lost and has been found by or sold to someone else who then try and use the phone.
Wikipedia
A personal unblocking code (PUC), also known as a PIN unlock key (PUK), is used in 3GPP mobile phones to reset a personal identification number (PIN) that has been lost or forgotten.
Most mobile telephones offer the feature of PIN protection. After switching on the phone, if the PIN security function is active, the user is requested to enter a 4-8 digit PIN enabling the phone's non-emergency calling functions. If the wrong PIN is typed in more than three times, either the SIM card, the device, or both become locked. They can be returned to their original unlocked state by entering a PUC, provided by the service operator after verification. If the wrong PUC is entered ten times in a row, the device will become permanently blocked and unrecoverable, requiring a new SIM card. Cellular phone users are therefore advised by most providers to keep their PUC written down in a safe place separate from the device.
The PUC (PUK) is a SIM-specific code assigned and provided by the service provider.
Once you enter the PUK code, you must set a PIN. The PUK and PUK2 are used to unlock the PIN and PIN2 codes respectively if your SIM card is blocked
From Bell
The PIN unblocking key (PUK; sometimes called personal unlocking key) is a master security code for unblocking and resetting the personal identification number (PIN) for your SIM card. For added security, the PUK is unique to your SIM card.
If your PIN code is active and you enter it incorrectly three times, your SIM card will be blocked. You won't be able to use your phone, except for emergency calls. You must enter your PUK into your phone to unblock the SIM card.
If your SIM card becomes blocked, Contact us to get your PUK. You may be able to do it from the website or your cellular provider. This is from Orange - T-Mobile in the UK.

Your phone can become blocked in a number of ways - one of them is if you enter your SIM card PIN number incorrectly three times in a row.
To unblock your SIM card, you will need to use something called a PUK (Personal Unblocking Key).
Remember that unblocking is different to unlocking. Read more information on unlocking your device.

Tip

PIN and PUK


Hello,

I have seen a lot of posts here about unblocking a PIN and PUK code.
Hopefully this tip will help Fixya users who experience this problem, at one point in time.

First of all, the PIN and PUK codes are not phone codes, they are SIM card codes.
The PIN (Personal Identification Number) is a code that restricts access to your phone, through the SIM card.
If you insert a SIM card that has no PIN restriction, you will not be asked for the PIN code.
When you enter the wrong PIN more than five times, it will get blocked, and ask you for the PUK code.

The PUK (Personal Unblocking Code) is used to unblock a blocked PIN.
If your PIN is blocked, use your PUK to unblock it.

Tip:

The PIN and PUK being SIM card codes, no one else can provide them to you, not even your phone manufacturer, except your network service provider.
If you dont have your PIN and PUK, call your network service provider customer care and they will provide you with both the PIN and PUK codes, for free.

I hope this tip will help you in case your PIN gets blocked.

Thank you for using Fixya,
Kenneth.

Puknumber wrong on back of my phone


You are confused Mona. The number on the back of your phone is an IMEI number, it is the identification number of your phone. A PUK Code is something completely different and is a lock put on the phone by the carrier for a number of reasons, number 1 is the phone has been reported stolen, number 2 is default of payment, number 3 is someone trying the consumer access code put on by the owner more that 3 times. Only the cellular carrier of that phone can give you the PUK Code.

This explains in full.

My phone is blocked its asking puk code.plz can u help me...........


Hi
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 for mobile phone.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.
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 sum to get the PUK code
Thank You.

Hello,

A PUK code is used to unblock your PIN incase a wrong PIN was wrongly entered five times, leading to your SIM card getting blocked.

Only your network service provider can provide you with a PIN and PUK for your SIM card.

Contact your network customer care service center and they will provide you with a PUK and PIN for free.

Thank you for using Fixya,

I've tired to set the PIN code for my Nokia 6085 phone but I cannot. I've entered the PUK code but now it says, "Enter new PIN code:" What do I do? I've entered a code I wanted and other ones on my...


HOLD ON!
You may enter wrong PIN three (3) times only. After that your PIN will be blocked! To unblock, you need PUK. You can only enter wrong PUK ten (10) times. (This is as documented) After entering correct PUK, you will be asked for NEW PIN.

So, when it says "PIN blocked. Enter PUK code", you must enter the PUK. If you correctly enter the PUK, it will asked for new PIN, by asking "Enter new PIN code:". Enter anything you want as your PIN. You will be asked to enter it twice (two times).
From what I read from your post, you have done correctly, but you don't want to enter new PIN. There is no way SIM card/phone will use old PIN. The device doesn't know your PIN. So, you have to enter new PIN.
