Finding a PUK (PersonalUnblocking Key) number is not a tough job. To find a PUKcode all you have to do is call up on the customer care number of your serviceprovider and ask them to help you with the issue. Before they provide you the PUKcode, they will ask you several questions. You need to give them theappropriate information. Customer care of your service provider are the onlysource from which can give you the PUK code.

At the time when you enter a wrong pin number three times. The phone asks youfor a PUK number. The PUKcode is generally eight digit number This PUKnumber is an unlocking code which helps you to unlock the phone and use it. Ifyou enter a wrong PUK number 10 times thanyou simcard gets rejected. Then you will have to but a new simcard. It mighthappen that your phone might ask you for PUK2after you enter your PUK number

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 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.

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


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

Thank You.

It is asking for a PUK code after i put in the phone unlock code. Wat is the PUK code


PUK stands for Pin Unblocking Key,this PUK code is used if wrong PIN (Personal Identification Number)code is entered for several try's.It means if you enter PIN for more than 3x,the simcard will be blocked and ask you to enter the PUK code as what is explain above.

Usually this PUK code is on the package together with your simpack when you bought it. in your phone case,you need to enter the PUK code to unblock the PIN so you can access the simcard data's and features,otherwise,if you lost your PUK code, just contact your service provider and ask for your PUK code.



hope it helps...

My phone has sim blocked how do i get it unblocked


You would need to enter the PUK Code for your SIM card. You will either need to call the service provider of your cell phone for the PUK code or refer to the SIM certificates that is included on the cell phone package when you got your cell phone for the PUK code.

Once you've entered your PUK code, it should automatically deactivate the SIM block on your phone.
If you enter the wrong PUK code 7 to 10 times in succession, it will lead to PUK blocked. After entering the wrong PUK code 10 times in a row, the SIM card becomes permanently invalid or locked. So be careful.


Hope this helps!

My phone puk code got locked. i can unlock the puk code but it says enter new pin code. and when i verify it it says code error


PUK code is a unique code for each SIM card and will be provided by your service provider.
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.
Enter the PUK number in your cell phone and you’ll be able to access your cell phone as before
