with your pin you unlock the sim card. After you miss typed the pin wrong 3 times in a row, you need the PUK. Both were delivered with the sim or the phone were the sim is in. Look i the box where your phone came in. Most of the time the paper with both numbers are kept there.
You didn't save them to your SIM card on your old phone. If you take your old phone & your new phone into a store you can ask them to switch the contacts over & they should be able to do it right then in there in just a few minutes.

First, make sure you have the SIM inserted in the phone correctly. If
you do - and the phone still doesn't recognize the SIM card - you may
need to replace the SIM card.
This is a common problem with some
phones especially when the SIM has been transferred from one phone to
Just about the only way to correct it is to replace the
SIM card with a new one.
You can purchase one on eBay for a few
dollars instead of paying $25 at a retail outlet. Once you receive it,
carefully pop it out of the card it is attached to and correctly insert
it into your phone.
Put in your battery and turn your phone ON.
You should see a 'No Service' message on the screen. If you do, then
your phone can now recognize the new SIM card.
Look on the larger
card you removed the SIM from and get the SIM number from the card.
Then call your service provider and inform them you have replaced a
defective SIM card with a new one in your phone. Give them the new SIM
card number and in less than 1-minute your phone will be working again.
When it does, the message on the screen will change from 'No
Service' to the name of your cellular provider.
The same thing was happening to my phone. I removed the battery, sim card, and memory card. I then replaced the battery an turned the phone on and it loaded to the main screen. I turned the phone back off and put back in the memory card and sim card and then it worked. Hope this helps.
