Probably have to call your SP (*611) to get the code.

    Service Provider, basically who you pay. My neighbor had the same prob and had to call in. After much verification they gave her the PUK (Personal Unblocking Key) code, just a lock to prevent unauthorized usage.

Hi,

The phone asks for PUK code ( Personal Unblocking Key )c85fe00.pngif a wrong PIN code is entered repeatedly

PUK code is related to the SIM card you are using in your phone and not the phone itselfc85fe00.png

Soc85fe00.png kindly call the Customer support of your cellular service provider and they will provide you with the PUK code free of charge

Please note: Entering a wrong PUK code ten times in a row permanently disables the SIM card. Soc85fe00.png please be careful while entering the PUK code

My sim card was blocked. asking to enter the puk code. i dont know the puk code. what will i do?


Welcome to Fixya!

PUK codes are sim card dependent. If your under a subscription plan, you can ask you provider of the PUK code. If you are using a prepaid sim, the PUK code is on the sim pack. It is on the card where you took your sim out. If you don't have the sim pack anymore, unfortunately there is no way that your SIM can be unblocked. You would need to buy a new sim.

Thank you for using Fixya and let me know if there is anything we can help you with.

All the best!

PUK number pops up...


here some additional info about it on top of wiqi's message.

Puk code, personal unlocking key. It is sim card related / spesific, if you take the sim card out from the phone, the phone will work with another sim card.

The puk comes up when the pin code has been entered wrong 3 times. To get the puk code for your sim card, you have to call the service provider of that sim card. They are the only ones who can provide you with the right puk code for that sim card.

I need a puc code for my razr vr pink phone


PUK code, (personal unlocking key).

This is SIM card related / specific. If you take the SIM card out of the phone, the phone will work with another sim card.


The puk comes up when the pin code has been entered wrong 3 times. To get the puk code for your sim card, you have to call the service provider of that sim card. They are the only ones who can provide you with the right puk code for that sim card.


The puk code may also have came with the documentation of the sim card, if its a prepaid card the Puk code comes on the documents or on the box of the product.


if your unable to obtain the puk code, get a new SIM card.


Also entering the puk code wrong too many times will eventually ruin the sim card forcing you to buy or contact your service provider for a new sim card.


There are no PUK code calculators or anything that we can do about it, you can buy premium assistance and you will get this same response. There is no other solution.


You have to contact the phone service provider of that SIM card or replace the sim card.

Sim blocked


So have you contacted your service provider? The sim card is blocked, either you have entered the pin code wrong 3 times - then it asked for puk code and you have entered puk code wrong 10 times so its become locked.

your only option is to call the phone service provider, or buy a new sim card / prepaid sim card.

just call your service provider

I can't open the phone lock and my sim card is also turn in PUK mode


Hi

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.
