The last time i answered one of these questions i gave 100% correct info and i was scored a 2 out of 4 for some reason. i will explain what a puk is, how it happened and how to fix it all that i ask is a score that actually reflects the info im providing. fair? okay almost every phone has two seperate lock funcitons. the first is a phone lock the next is a sim lock. the phone lock locks just the phone the pin lock or sim lock locks the sim. by locking the sim it prevents it from working in alternate phones. to test this you can try your sim in a different phone and you will get the same exact error. puk is a lock given by the provider and its specific to your sim. you'll have to call your provider and they will give you the code and then walk you through entering it into the phone. it should be **05*(the code they give your)*1234 (or the code you want) *1234 (or the code you want)# the sim will unlock and your phone will be perfect. do not attempt to unlock with out the code from your provider. if you enter it incorrectlly 10 times it will freeze the sim and you'll need a new one. i hope this helps!!! once again please provide me with a score that reflects the info and help i provded. i have worked for a cell company for 5 years in tech support and i can 100% guarentee you this info is flawless. thank you again!

Im locked out of my phone and after i type in my password to turn it on it asks for a PUK but i do not have a PUK pin and it wont let me in


Yo! you need to see the pack of your sim card for your PUK code. it is being provided by your network provider. if you still have difficulties getting it, you will havet o call the customer care of your service provider to get the PUK code.thanks

Good day im ashric.I lost my sim card holder with


Hi as you have lost the card the sim card was attatched to then the only place you can now get the code from is your service provider, the PUK code is the securit code for the sim card and the code is random so its not like the security code where you can use a number generator to get the code the PUK code is totally random and is between 8 and 11 digits long.

so you have 2 options open to you if you need to use the sim card thats asking for the PUK code then all you need to do is call your service provider and give them your phone number and they may ask your name and address but once this is done they will be able to give you the PUK code over the phone for free.

now the other option you have is if you dont need to use the sim card what you can do is get another sim card and you will either get a new puk code or the sim card wont ask for the PUK code.

let me know how you get on or if you need further assistance.

please could you rate this post as i have a whole page of unrated posts, thanks.

Forgot my sim pin: i don't want to try more than 2x scared to


Hey,

after you enter it wrong 3 times the simcard will lock the pin code and ask for a puk code.

If you have forgotten the pin code, then don't worry. Just enter it wrong untill its locked (3times)

then call your phone service provider for the puk code, with the puk code you can set a new pin code, instructions at your phone service provider.

I've explained more about the puk code on this page

Let me know if you need anything else.


Thanks,

PUK BLOCKED


I've explained the puk code at http://www.bukisa.com/articles/19406_puk-code

Note that if you have entered the puk code wrong too many times you have made the sim card useless and you will need to get a new simcard from your service provider.

UNBLOCK MY PUK CODE


Hi everyone

Every PUK code is unique so nobody can tell you your PUK number, but i will tell you what you can do!
1) If you still have your packet that your Sim Card came in, you should find your PUK number in there, if you don't have the packet, please read bellow.

2) You must get a phone that is on the same network as your phone and call the networks Customer Care and ask them for your PUK number, they will ask you for your phone number, then they will tell you your PUK number. Once you have done this, you will be able to reset your Pin number so you will be able to go into your phone again.

Please also remember to give this solution a FixYa! rating if it helps you.

Kind regards
