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.

I need unlocked PUK code on my O2 sim card.

The PUK and PIN are two security features provided by the service provider. The default PUk is 00000000 (eight zeros) and PIN 12345. But used wrong more than three times renders the SIM locked and useless. So, now you know where you stand. Ask the helpline of the service provider, even if from a friend's phone to give you a new SIM, for a charge to retain the old number.

To find a PUK code all you have to do is call up on the customer care number and ask them to help you with the issue. Before they provide you the PUK code, they will ask you several questions. You need to give them the appropriate information. Customer care of your service provider are the only source from which can give you the PUK code. At the time when you enter a wrong pin number three times. The phone asks you for a PUK number. The PUK code is generally eight digit number This PUK number is an unlocking code which helps you to unlock the phone and use it. If you enter a wrong PUK number 10 times than you simcard gets rejected. Then you will have to but a new simcard. It might happen that your phone might ask you for PUK2 after you enter your PUK number

I cant use the phone on the screen have something pin code blocked enter puk code

This problem occurs when wrong PIN or PUK have been given more that twice. These are issued by the service provider. Hence you must contact the helpline of the service provider and ask them for a new PIN or PUK. However the default is 00000000 (eight zeros).

Puk code

The default PUK is 00000000 (eight zeros). PUK and PIN are the service provider's security codes. And if you give wrong PUK five times then the SIM gets locked. And only the service provider can supply you new PUK. If eight zeros do not work then contact the helpline of your service provider and get a new one from there.
