Last time I heard anything like that was for a cell phone, and it meant you tried the unlock code unsuccessfully too many times, and now you have to call the cell phone provider to get it unlocked (You will have to prove ownership of the phone).

Hello,

This is what you need to know about PUK;

When a PIN code is entered wrongly three times, the phone line will be blocked. Irrespective of the owner, it is assumed that you are not the owner of the phone line when you enter your pin wrongly.

The blocked line at this point can still be unblocked and this is where the PUK code comes in. Once you enter the PUK code, your PIN code will be reset. You can then create a ne PIN code.

To get your PUK code, if your phone is using a SIM Card, Check the SIM card Pack and you will see your PUK code there. But if you don't have a SIM card pack, you can get the PUK code from your service provider.

Call the customer care line of your service provider using another phone, request for your PUK code and it will be given to you. Note that your service provider will ask you some few questions about your line in order to be sure you are the real owner.

Note that your service provider alone is the only one that can give you your PUK code because it's only your service provider that has it.

Good luck....

Too many pattern attempts


That will put the phone in protect mode, try taking the battery out, but don't turn it off. The company where the phone was purchased should be able to reset the unit so you can put a new lock pattern on it or you might try a different way of locking it. If its asking for a PKU code the company is the only one that can tell you the code or the phones manual that came with it. Each one is different.

I need the puk code for nokia 5230-1c


You will get the PUK code from your cellular operator itself. So please contact the customer care of the cellular operator and they will provide you PUK code. They will ask for mobile no and the last paid bill or last recharge on your phone.

Hi, what is a PKU-1.


There is no such thing as a PKU-1 on a blackberry, or any, smartphone.
What I think you mean is PUK. A PUK code is the code that locks/unlocks your sim card. Your phone may lock up your sim card if the wrong security code is entered a number of times, and this results in you needing to phone your carrier and ask for your PUK code, which is provided for free.

Itsasking for my pku number and i type in alot ok


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 . Donot try PUK 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.

PUK blocked


PUK means "personal unlocking key" .

The PUK code is asked if you enter a wrong pin 3 times.

You need to call the phone company that released the SIM card, they can retrieve the puk code from a database for free.

In your case you need to contact your SIM card provider technical support to unlock the SIM.


The PIN and PUK are related to the SIM card, not to the phone.

If you replace the SIM card with a different one, then the phone will not ask for the PUK anymore.
