If you have a blackberry and are referring to the PIN this is used for Blackberry Messenger. Your individual pin code is used so people can add you on Blackberry Messenger.

Unlock idea sim


Hi,

When you activated PIN (PersonalIdentification Number) code, then the code definitely requested once the deviceis turned on. Most of wireless service providers allow this PIN code todeactivated while some of them this case irrelevant and you will always ask forPIN code when switched on the device. PUK (Phone Unlock Key)is further protection of SIM card. This code will requested by SIM card whenthree times consecutive PIN2 code, logged incorrectly. Usually, you can change and manage the PIN, PIN2, PUK1, and PUK2 andlock code (others prefer to call it security code). Note that all PIN & PUKcodes dedicated to your SIM card while lock code is for phone itself. All thecode is using integer positive (0 - 9) and will never use the alphabet. Somewireless service provider set 1234 as initial PIN code. Most of wirelessservice provider use 4-8 digits for PIN code and 8 digits for PUK code.

You can get the code ( if your sim locked ) at your service provider CS.

Tip

Getting PUK code


Normally for NOKIA mobiles, the default PIN code is 0000.

When you initially starting to use your mobile,your PIN code wil be '0000' and after you can go to 'access codes' to change the PIN code as you want.

Security code is 12345

For MOTOROLA mobiles, the default PIN code is 1234.
security code is 000000

For SONY ERICSON mobiles, the default PIN code is 0000


As you set up a new PIN code and if you forget your pin code and you already entered your wrong PIN code 3 times ,then this may lock your phone and it wil ask for a 'PUK code'.

If it asks for the PUK code please call your service provider and they wil give you the PUK code.

NOTE:You cannot call from your mobile as your mobile is fully locked. please use any other mobile to call the service providers.

Before giving the PUK code they wil ask for your informations to cross check with the Data base that they have. please give the correct information to them,if they are not satisfied with the information given by you, they may refuse to give you the PUK code.

thanx

Tip

PIN and PUK


Hello,

I have seen a lot of posts here about unblocking a PIN and PUK code.
Hopefully this tip will help Fixya users who experience this problem, at one point in time.

First of all, the PIN and PUK codes are not phone codes, they are SIM card codes.
The PIN (Personal Identification Number) is a code that restricts access to your phone, through the SIM card.
If you insert a SIM card that has no PIN restriction, you will not be asked for the PIN code.
When you enter the wrong PIN more than five times, it will get blocked, and ask you for the PUK code.

The PUK (Personal Unblocking Code) is used to unblock a blocked PIN.
If your PIN is blocked, use your PUK to unblock it.

Tip:

The PIN and PUK being SIM card codes, no one else can provide them to you, not even your phone manufacturer, except your network service provider.
If you dont have your PIN and PUK, call your network service provider customer care and they will provide you with both the PIN and PUK codes, for free.

I hope this tip will help you in case your PIN gets blocked.

Thank you for using Fixya,
Kenneth.

How to turn off the pin code of your sim card


you can disable the pin code in your phone on tools folder, or settings , select security and look for the pin code options there, enable or disable, select disable and enter your 4 digits pin code which was provided by your network, if you have changed the default pin code(which was provided by your network), enter your current pin code (code which you use to replace the default pin code) and pin security will be disabled.

good luck and take care.

I have an lg vu and i wanted to see what happens after the pin is gone 5 times now my screen just sayz puk blocked please need help!!!!!


If all else fails, you can use cellunlockstore.com for $1.99. Try the instructions below.

To change your SIM card's various PIN and PUK codes:


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 we'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 ones 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. 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 #
