PUK stands for Personal Unblocking Key. This is a uniqueeight-digit code specific to your SIM card. This is required when the PINnumber to unlock your mobile phone is entered incorrectly 3 times. You are thengiven 10 attempts to enter your PUK code. If an incorrect PUK code is enteredafter the 10th attempt, you will block your SIM card permanently and willrequire a new SIM card from your mobile phone provider.
PUK codes can be obtained through the following ways - The PUK code is in your SIM card documentation Starter Pack.If you do not have this then -Please contact your phone service provider.
Your cell phone service provider can give you the PUK code once you give themyour account details and they have confirmed your identity.

The following codes are provided by the network operator:

-pin code
-puk code

both of these codes are provided when you purchase a sim card and are usually written on the sim holder or on the provided booklet.
if u have the puk code, then u can enter a wrong pin multiple time and then the sim card will ask you for the puk code which then u can use to unlock the sim.
if u lost both the sim and puk, then the only way is to contact the network operator to give you a new sim card.

Don't try to enter a PUK code without knowing the right one.
hope this helps

I have the original IPad someone put a 4 diget lock on it and i locked myself out.I had to factory reset but now it says I need a puk code.where do I get one


The best choice would go to your friendly apple store.

Don't try to guess your SIM PIN. To many wrong guesses can permanently lock your SIM card, which means that you would need a new SIM card.

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.


As you evaluate my advise.solutions and suggestions, there are a few things you must keep in mind:

• I did not diagnose your problem and am therefore only able to evaluate what you tell me. For example, if you ask me a fuse location, that doesn't mean that I can tell you the reason why the fuse blew. Keep in mind that I'm limited in my analysis to what you tell me.
• A thorough diagnostic approach involves the use of technical equipment, such as voltage meters. scanning equipment and other sophisticated devices.
• Lastly, fixing one problem can very easily reveal a problem with something that you might consider unrelated. If that happens, you might want to view me as being incompetent.

Subject: How to unlock a SIM card

Customer's exact description: I'm having a problem with my Samsung SGH-a927. I just wanted to put in a PIN code but then it also asked me for another code in which I failed 4 times and now it's asking me for a PUK code. Is there any way I can get the code without calling Customer Service.

Discussion: Problems of this type can be easily solved and the short answer is YES. However, since I don't know the name of your carrier, I'll give you the various solutions including contacting customer service.

Solution: Provide instructions on how to deal with all three possibilities.


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:

Take the phone into your carrier's retail outlet.

OR

• 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. If you want to try to do it yourself, just click on the following link:
Universal Software Solution for Unlocking a SIM Card

Lastly . . . .

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 I'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.

More importantly, when changing one's 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.

The following methodology does not work for every phone. Perhaps you'll be lucky. 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.

Just follow the instruction carefully as what the phone is asking.

Here is the steps :

If you got error lately,just turn off you mobile for 1 hour to reset the counter,cause if you continue entering wrong codes,the seem might be rejected or it goes like "simcard rejected

* turn on your mobile (mobile should be off for 1 hour to reset the counter)
* if ask for the PUK code,enter it
* If ask for a "NEW" PIN code,enter your new desired PIN code
* If ask to verify the code,just retype your new desired PIN code.


Hope this will help you... good luck...

I forgot my 4 diget pin number for my rogers pay as you go cell phone. how do i find help to get my pin


PIN CODE:

HI If you are asking for pin contact your service provider , he will give you a default pin .

If you try pin more than few predefined no of times your phone will ask PUK code which can also be given only by your service provider which is specific for each and every mobile number . Do not try PUK(new pin code) code many times or else your sim will be blocked and you will need a new sim.

Contact your sim customer care department over phone. Its free of cost to get the pin or puk no.
Go to the nearest service outlet of your service provider they can also help you.
There is no other go than the above procedure only your service provider can give it nobody else in this world nor any software..

I need a puk code for my nokia n95 phone. I am


PUK is not your phones code. its the sim code. if you enter three times wrong PIN number then the sim asks u for a PUK to unlock the sim card. if u enter 10 times wrong PUK code then your sim will get corrupted and u cant be use that sim anymore. to solve this problem. you have to contact the sim vendor or customer care to retrieve the code from them. u have to give 16 digit sim no: while they ask for conformation. after getting the PUK no. keep that Number in safe place for future use.....
