NEED PUK UNLOCK CODE


PUK

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.

What does it mean by P.UK blocked


Hi.

PUK means "personal unlocking key" . This is an unique ID associated with the phone.

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

The PUK is usually enclosed with SIM card or phone documentation (if SIM is the one originally provided with the phone.

If you do not have the PUK, then you need to call the phone company that released the SIM card. The code will be retrieved from a database.Service is usually free. The same can be done for a small fee at any local phone shop (they will call the company).

The PIN and PUK are codes linked to the SIM card
and not to the phone.

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


Here an old tip on the topic. It basically says the same things explained in this comment: The PUK code is asked if you enter a wrong pin 3 times....

My sim card has been rejected because puk code entered no of times


Only thing that can be done now is to ask for a duplicate sim. You should have asked the service provider for your puk code. They would have provided you with it. Good Luck

UNBLOCK MY PUK CODE


Hi everyone

Every PUK code is unique so nobody can tell you your PUK number, but i will tell you what you can do!
1) If you still have your packet that your Sim Card came in, you should find your PUK number in there, if you don't have the packet, please read bellow.

2) You must get a phone that is on the same network as your phone and call the networks Customer Care and ask them for your PUK number, they will ask you for your phone number, then they will tell you your PUK number. Once you have done this, you will be able to reset your Pin number so you will be able to go into your phone again.

Please also remember to give this solution a FixYa! rating if it helps you.

Kind regards
