I forgot my puk code


Does this help? I have copied and pasted it from the www.att.com Support tab under the Wireless heading. I searched for Obtain PUK code.

Obtain a PUK Code

Instructions: When the error message "ENTER PUK CODE" is shown on the screen of the device:
  1. Log into myAT&T.
  2. Select Wireless from the myAT&T tab at the top of the page.
  3. Select Phone/Device.
  4. Click Unblock SIM Card.
  5. A new page will open, containing the PUK code for your phone. Enter the code on your phone's screen to unblock the SIM and create a new PIN.
Unblock SIM Card
  1. Enter the eight-digit PUK code on the phone, then press OK/Yes.
    Note: Some Motorola phone users need to enter **05* if "enter PUK" is not already displayed. After entering **05*, enter the eight-digit PUK code and press OK.
  2. Select a new PIN code, then press OK/Yes.
  3. Re-enter the PIN code, then press OK/Yes.
  4. If the codes were entered successfully, the phone is ready for use.
If the incorrect PUK code is entered 10 times in a row, the SIM card becomes permanently locked and a new SIM card must be purchased. If the device is requesting PUK2, call Customer Care at 800-331-0500.

Information on att unlocking codes and puk codes


Ive noticed a lot of att phones that want unlocked for a different provider sim or phone is asking for unlock code. If you are trying to use a different providers sim card in the phone you will need to call att and answer a few simple questions and theyll give you the code and how to enter it into the phone. Dont keep entering codes in or it will permanently lock it to the network. If you already have att and your phone is asking for a puk or an unlock that you dont remember using youll also need to contact att. The puk they will be able to give if your able to verify your account, CAUTION do not keep entering in numbers for the puk code if you enter it in 5 times wrong youll lock it to the network and need a new sim/phone. If your phone is asking for an unlock code, its most likely one youve made up but if you dont remember making one up you can call att and they may be able to give you a default code, or find a way to get the code you need.

to my knowledge, this cannot happen without someone actually locking the sim, so you may want to contact your employer, but just in case your employer doesn't know whats happening,
here are instructions to find your puk code for att, if you have a different carrier, contact their customer support for further instruction

Took out sims card and now it wants an unlock code for sims that i do not know


Hi,

I'm sometimes accused of not giving short answers. However, my philosophy is that too much is better than too little.

Still with me?

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 your carrier. For example, if you have AT&T to unlock your SIM card, you can obtain your phone's PUK code from AT&T by:

? logging in to your my wireless Account online
? using their Technical Support Chat
? calling Customer Care at 1-800-331-0500

To get your phone's PUK code online from ATT:

? Log in to your my wireless Account.
? Select My Services under My Account.
? From the My Services screen, select My Phone/Device.
? Select Unblock SIM Card.
? The Unblock SIM screen will display your PUK code.


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 ATT 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."

All the best,

Ben

How do i assign my used motorola bluetooth n136 to my motorola clutch i465

You should have no problem as long as you are not changing carriers. It sounds like the phone is locked because it was issued by a different carrier and that means the phone must be unlocked, I'll tell you how,

Let me give you a little background and then some solutions. This is generic because I don't know your carrier. I'm using ATT as an example.

Phones are naturally unlocked, but a service provider might lock them

When originally manufactured, all GSM cell phones are unlocked. That is, they can be used with any SIM from any cellphone service provider - always assuming, of course, that the cellphone service provider has compatible GSM service on the same frequency bands that the phone can operate on.

Most cell phone service providers electronically 'lock' the phone so that it can only be used with their service. There are obvious reasons why they choose to do this - in particular, to force you to pay what are usually very high roaming charges when you take your phone out of their network and use it elsewhere in the world.

Fortunately, this locking is reversible. With some phones, it is possible to simply enter an unlocking password code into the phone and it is immediately then unlocked. Other phones need to be connected up to a special unlocking data terminal.

Your phone has to be unlocked by the carrier. LG, Motorola, Sony Ericsson, Nokia and most of their ilk, will not give consumers the unlock codes but don't despair.

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 your carrier. For example, if you have AT&T to unlock your SIM card, you can obtain your phone's PUK code from AT&T by:

Note: If you enter the wrong ATT 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."

There are three other ways to unlock a phone:

? The carrier will unlock the phone for you at one of its retail outlets;
? You can do it yourself by clicking on this link Free Unlock Codes ,
? Pay $3.89 at the following website: www.theunlockshack.com/. I have absolutely no affiliation or relationship with The Unlock Shack or its principals.

I trust that this is helpful and solves your problem. All the best

How do i find the puk code for my motorola razr v3


1> Call your service provider, it'll be on your account.

2> AT&T lets you see your PUK on your account online. www.att.net/wireless Then log into your account and you can access your PUK yourself.

Remember, make sure you have the right code, and that you enter it correctly. You have 10 attempts to enter it correctly, then you'll be asked to enter a new security code. If you try 10 times wrong you'll lock that SIM and need a new one.

(that's not cumulative in the life of the SIM, just 10 in a row on the same occurrence.)

Puk code locked


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.
