The PUK code is not related to the handset. It is associated with your SIM card. When you enable the PIN in your SIM card, every time you switch on your phone, you will be asked for your pin. At given number of tries provided by your mobile operator, that you have provided the wrong PIN (usually operators set it at 3 tries), then you came to the stage called PUK-blocked.

To unlock, you would need the PUK code of the SIM card. The PUK code is usually an 8-digit code. This PUK code should have been provided to you when you purchased your SIM card. Some has the PIN-PUK code printed in the card body of the SIM card, while some attach it as a separate print out. Should your operator failed to provide this PIN-PUK code to you, you would have to get it from your operator. Try calling their customer service. Just like the PIN, the operator as well could say how much tries do you have to successfully unblock the PUK of your SIM .

I have stupidly managed to totally lock my samsung GT-S5600 phone so it won't let me access anything at all. Is there anyway I can unlock this code. Orange are unable to help me


Hi,
I understand that you have locked your phone and it seems like it is asking for a PUK coke?
A PUK code is needed if you have entered a pin number incorrectly several times.

So to obtain a PUK code you will need to ring your service provider and they will give you the PUK code for your phone which then you can enter it on the keypad which will unlock your phone.

I hope this helps you.
If so please leave a vote or comment.

Have a Great Day

You are then given10 attempts to enter your PUK code. If an incorrect PUK code is entered afterthe 10th attempt, you will block your SIM card permanently and will require anew 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.

Sony ericsson w580i turn on it asks for lock code 4-8 characters. i have tried all the combinations 0000-00000000, 1111-11111111,1234-12345678, 0123-01234567,reverse

  3. Select Protection > On.

To change the phone lock code:
  1. Select Menu > Settings > General (tab).
  2. Select Security > Locks > Phone protection.
  3. Select Change code and follow the instructions.

However IF it is to do with your PUK code see below..
PUKs, or personal unblocking keys, are used to unblock a mobile phone which becomes blocked. Mobile phones may become blocked when a PIN (personal identification number) is entered incorrectly on three consecutive occasions. In some instances, the phone may become blocked, which requires a PUK to unblock it, and in other instances, the SIM (Subscriber Identity Module) card itself becomes blocked and again will require a PUK to unblock it. Mobile phones are also blocked when they are reported stolen and if there is an outstanding payment on the account. It is important to differentiate between unblocking phones (using a PUK) and unlocking mobile phones (using another type of code). NOTE: It is a criminal offence for anyone to attempt to unblock a mobile phone, other than the network provider who put the block on the phone. If your phone has become blocked by mistake, for example you have entered the PIN incorrectly on three consecutive occasions, then you need to contact the mobile phone network operator with your details. To explain a little more, specific to your mobile phone network, You need to go to your Service providers, web site & navigate your way to the specific PUK details for your mobile phone network operator. Usually you have to Register your phone to get a PUK code.

Most SIM cards are blocked at the time of purchase. If your SIM card lock is on you have to enter your PIN (Personal Identity Card) every time you turn on the phone.

If you enter the wrong password three times in a row the SIM card gets blocked. This is indicated by the message PIN Blocked To unblock this you need to enter your PUK

Note:
