Re: unlocking puk code
Probably the PUK code is on the SIM card, or not the phone...but if you have the PUK code on the phone, the best thing is to look for a shortcut code for master reset...this shortcut code is a code that looks like (for example) ###85939# (do not try this one, it is just an example) so if you'll find that code...start the phone without the SIM inserted and try writing the code (not the one I gave you, but one you'll find on the internet, or the one I'll give to you in the future, if you'll give me some details about the phone) ...and then you can see if it works...however another solution might be to contact a phone service to resoft it...I think that's going to work...but I'm not pretty sure...

What is a PUK?
PUK stands for Personal Unblocking Key, and it's a code that's associated with a mobile phone SIM card.
Why am I being asked for a PUK?
Your mobile phone's SIM Card
has a four-digit PIN code enabled by default. If you enter the PIN code
incorrectly three times, a lock will be put onto the SIM card, and you
need a PUK code to unlock it.
Where do I get a PUK?
If you're being asked to enter a PUK, you will need to contact your network operator to get your SIM Card
unlocked. This is for security reasons. Note that only your mobile
phone network operator can legally provide you with a PUK code to unlock
your SIM card.
A PUK code is a 8-10 digit code given to you by your cell phone service provider to unlock the phones SIM card, the SIM card gets locked after 3 failed attempts to put in a PIN in most cases. So to get this PUK code to unlock the SIM you need to call your cell phones service provider technical assistance center, just cal them and them and they will direct you to the proper people to get this unlocked.
well, my old phone was the Samsung Soul U900, and axidentally put a Puk lock on that, and my dad rung up Orange, and asked for the Puk Code, and they gave us it and you just type into your phone the number you were given and it should unlock, obviously, you wouldn't ring orange unless orange is your network, so just ring the network that you have. Hope I helped :) xx
the puk code is part of a sim lock. most phones have two locks a phone lock and a sim lock. the puk code comes from incorrectlly entering the sim unlock code too many times. this can be fixed in about 2 minutes but you need to get the sim puk code from your carrier i.e. att, or tmobile. the when you get the pin you want to enter **05*(enter the puk code you were given)*(your new pin of your choice)*(the pin you choose again)# after that your phone will say unlocked besure to test this by turning your phone of and on when it asks you for the pin it will no be the pin you chose, i hope this helps!!!
Well there is no universal PUK code available which you punch in and get the phone unlocked. So do not try to punch in PUK codes which your are not sure of in an effort to unlock the phone, because putting the wrong PUK code, ten times in a row will permanently deactivate your SIM card.
So to unlock the Nokia PUK code, you will have to call the customer service helpline of the network provider, who will ask you for the registration number of your SIM card. Once you provide them with the SIM card registration number, the PUK code will be given to you. PUK code better known as the PUC or the personal unlocking code is a feature which is present in all GSM cell phones.
here is some info on PUK codes:
try taking battery and SIM out waiting 15 seconds and powering cell back on.
In your case I believe your SIM is now FROZEN or locked. You mostlikely will need to purchase a new SIM card.
PUK code (Pin Unlock Key) is required when you enter an incorrect PIN 3
times. After entering the wrong PIN 3 times, the card will be locked and
you will need to get a PUK code from your service provider to unlock it.
If the wrong PUK code is entered ten
times in a row, the SIM card becomes invalid and you will need to purchase a new SIM Card. The phone will display
"PUK blocked call operator".
PUK code can be given only by your service provider which is specific for each and every mobile number. Contact your sim customer care department over phone.
