The only thing you can do for a PUK code is to contact your carrier (AT&T, T-Mobile, etc.)

Hi,

My name is Ben and I'm your guru, i.e., mentor, an influential teacher or popular expert: a management guru. - origin from Sanskrit, 'weighty, grave' for today.

PUK Codes

A PUK (PIN Unlock Key) code is required to unlock SIM cards that have become locked following three successive incorrect PIN entries. If your SIM card becomes locked, you will need to get a PUK code from AT&T to unlock your SIM card.

Since I don't know the name of you carrier, I'm using AT&T as an example. Most carriers use the same methodology though the wording may be different.

You can obtain your phone's PUK code from AT&T in one of these ways:

• Log in to myAT&T online
• Use our Technical Support Chat.
• Contact Customer Care


To get your phone's PUK code online:

? Log in to myAT&T.
? From the myAT&T tab at the top of the page, hover over the Wireless link and select Phone/Device under the My Wireless Service heading.
? From the My Phone/Device screen, select the Unblock SIM Card link under the My Make & Model heading.
? The Unblock SIM screen will display your PUK code and will give you instructions for unblocking your SIM Card.

Once you receive your PUK code, you will need to enter it into your phone to set a new PIN code.

Note: If you enter the wrong PUK code 10 times in a row, your SIM card will be invalidated, and you will need to purchase a new SIM Card. The phone will display the following error: "PUK blocked call operator."

You can also do it without any assistance from anyone, However, be sure to read the following carefully because there are pitfalls.

Although most people remember their primary SIM PIN code, those other codes - used for various verification purposes - are never to be found when needed. Below we've included a set of short codes which, when entered on a handset's standby screen, will let you easily change PIN and PUK (short for Pin Unlock Code) codes - but keep in mind, they may not work with all handsets and mobile operators. If you are interested in a software fix, click on the following link: Universal SIM Lock Remover

More importantly, when changing ones PUK codes there'll be no help to get from the mobile operator if the new codes are forgotten, so make sure to write any changes down alongside the old PUK codes. Also, please note that the codes should be entered without the spaces shown below.

Change SIM Card PIN
** 04 * old PIN * new PIN * new PIN #

Change SIM Card PIN 2 (Write down the new code)
** 042 * old PIN * new PIN * new PIN #

Change SIM Card PUK (Write down the new code)
** 05 * old PUK * new PUK * new PUK #

Change SIM Card PUK 2 (Write down the new code)
** 052 * old PUK * new PUK * new PUK #

Display Handset IMEI
*# 06 #

This was wordy but hopefully it helped you.

My xperia 10 is puk locked and now i cant dial out except for emergency calls IM STUCK HELP


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,.,.,.,.

I have this prepaid simcard from Turkey, It is locked now and I do not have the PUK number to open it. Is there anyway, I can unlock it. I don't live in Turkey anymore. Thank you


Usually the PUK code for prepaid sim card is located on the credit card like card where the sim card was attached to. You can also go to the sim card issuer website to request the PUK code.

My idea sim ask for puk code but i dont know..what do i do? please tell me


hi, what the PUK code is is a network lock code related to your sim card all you need to do is contact your service provider and ask them for your PUK code they will give you this code for free over the phone.
Your service provider is the only place you can get this code from as every single sim card made has its own unique PUK code so your service provider is the only person who holds these codes, they wont charger for giving you this and this code will only work with the sim card that is asking for the code.

Dont try guessing the code as its over 10 digits long and completely random, you only get 5 tries then the sim card is blocked and can no longer be used.

Let me know how you get on or if you need further assistance ok

My LG xenon phone needing my PUK code it wont work


PUK codes are a lock placed on the sim card. You can usually call the customer service line for your provider and they can give you the PUK code or you can have the sim card replaced on a store.

Puk code for a sony ericcson phone


the puk code is required when the pin code is written wrong 3 times, to get the puk call your phone service provider the puk is not related to the phone so if you put in another sim card it will work, or if you put the locked sim card to another phone then the other phone will ask for puk.

its simcard protection incase its stolen, 3 times wrong and its locked, eventually if you enter the puk code wrong too many times it should make the sim card useless so call your phone service provider its your only option.

I need help getting the phone lock code for a sony ericsson k320i its an old phone i got the puk code but thats not it. apparently its a software problem and sony want £30 to sort it out and the phone isnt...


The puk code is a code associated to SIM card , not to the phone.

You have to choices, call the phone company or replace the SIM card inside.

The PUK code is asked if you enter a wrong pin 3 times.

You need to call the phone company that released the SIM card, they can retrieve the PUK code from a database for free.

In your case you need to contact your SIM card provider technical support to unlock the SIM.


The PIN and PUK are related to the SIM card, not to the phone.

If you replace the SIM card with a different one, then the phone will not ask for the PUK anymore. 

 
Let me know if you need anything else.
Thanks,

My sony ericson T610 PUK was blocked what will i do


you have entered the pin code wrong 3 times now you are required to enter a puk code to reset the pin code. 

The puk code is sim card spesific it comes with the sim card when you get it or you can get it by calling your phone service provider of the sim card to get the puk code. 


if you have entered the puk code wrong too many times you will make the sim card useless and you will have to contact your phone service provider for a new sim card, it will probably cost.
