Forgot puk code cant get in is there possibly a way to get in
Hi, the PUK code is the security code for the sim card and not for the phone, now you would have been given this code on the pack the sim card was attatched to, but chances are you no longer have this anymore, so the only other way you can get this is by calling your service provider, all you need to do is give them either the phone number of the sim card or give them the number written on the back of the sim card, their is no other way of getting this code and it cant be guessed as its between 8 and 11 digits long and its totally random, they will give you this code for free over the phone so give them a call and your phone will be working again.
if you guess the code and get it wrong more than 5 times then it will lock the phone and make the sim card scrap so dont keep guessing as you just wont get the right code as it is totally random.
if how ever you dont need to use the sim card thats asking for the code then what you can do is go out and buy a new sim card and put this in your phone, this new sim shouldnt ask for the PUK code but if it does then you will have the code with the new sim card.
now if the phone is asking for the PUK code because you have entered the wrong security code on the phone more than 5 times then this means even if you get the PUK code this will only then get the phone asking for its security code again, but if the phone never asked for this first and its just asking for the PUK code then once you enter the code you will have access to the phone and the details on the sim card ok
the reason the phone asks for the PUK code is usually down to the wrong pin number been entered for the phones security code, so if this is the case then the phone locks the sim card to prevent any1 from getting the data on it so if your phone was stolen and you had the phone protected by a security code then if someone found it and entered the wrong code more than 5 times then this will then block the sim card until the PUK code has been entered correctly, its all just a safety feature to prevent the sim card been used and stop your data been stolen.
let me know how you get on or if you need further assistance ok
