Step 2Select the option to speak with customer care. The customer care agent will ask you to verify your account with the account password.

Step 3 Advise the customer care agent you need a PUK code. The agent will generate a new PUK code and give it to you over the phone.

Step 4

What is a PUK code?
A personal unblocking code (PUC), also known as a PIN unlock key (PUK), is used in mobile phones to reset a personal identification number (PIN) that has been lost or forgotten.
How to Unlock the PUK Code on a Mobile Phone If Locked?
GSM phones give you the option to set a PIN code on the SIM card as a security measure. If you only set a phone lock and you lose your phone, someone can remove the SIM and insert it into another phone. The person can then make calls on your account. When you insert the SIM card into another phone, the phone prompts you for the code. If you put in the code wrong three times, the phone will lock the PIN and ask for a PIN Unlocking Key.
Step 1
Contact your cellular carrier. Some phones allow you to call the carrier even if the PUK is locked. You can also dial the carrier's toll-free number from another phone.
Step 2
Select the option to speak with customer care. The customer care agent will ask you to verify your account with the account password.

How to Find Out My PUK Code
The PUK code for your cell phone is a SIM card-specific code assigned by the service provider. If you have entered an incorrect pin into your phone three times, the SIM card on your phone will lock and you will be unable to use your phone. An error message will appear asking you to "Enter PUK Code." The PUK code is available through your service provider.
Instructions
Don't try to guess your phone's PUK code. If you enter the wrong code three times, or sometimes five times depending on your phone type, you will end up with a completely locked SIM card that will need to be replaced.
Go to your online cell phone account. Log in with the username and password that are assigned to the account. Some providers include the PUK code along with the rest of your online account information.
Click on the "Phone" or "Device" option on your online account. The name of this section will vary by provider. When you click on this option, you will be taken to a section with information regarding your cell phone.
Look for an option to "Unblock SIM Card" or any other SIM card selection. Once the information regarding your SIM card opens, see if there is an "unblock" link. If your provider does have an "unblock" section, follow the instructions exactly to unblock your SIM card.
Call your provider. If the PUK code could not be found on the online account, you must get it directly from the customer service department of your cell phone provider. Be prepared to answer questions to confirm your identity, such as billing address or email address, and possibly provide them with the number on your SIM card. Once you have given proof of your identity, your provider will give you the PUK number. If possible, enter the PUK code into your cell while you are still on the phone with customer service. This will save you time if the code fails to work.

I HAVE SAME PROBLEM ON REFORMATTING AND I FORGOT MY SECURITY CODE MY SERIAL IS 354187027091245


There are a couple of things you can try
1st, enter *#7328748263373738# this "might" allow you in to reset the security code

If not, you can take a guess, I beleive you will get 3 wrong trys before you are asked for a PUK code. If you are asked for a PUK code - STOP
Call your provider, get the PUK code, once entered, it will allow you back in the the phone,reseting the security back to the default code of 12345. At that point yopu can change it again if you wish

I am a user of Reliance CDMA , the SIM has been locked and its asking for the PUK Code.. What is the PUK Code?


A PUK code is a "Pin unlock code" it is used in mobile phones. This code unlocks the SIM card to allow access to your mobile phone. If you enter this code incorrectly several times, then the SIM card will be locked permanently and you will need to purchase another SIM card from your mobile phone provider.
The PUK code is with the documentation that came with your SIM card, if you no longer have the documentation, then you need to contact your phone service provider and ask them for the PUK code.

PUK Number for 6500 slide


Hello,

A PUK code is a SIM card code which is used to unlock the PIN code.

This code is used on the SIM card, and not the phone.
The PIN allows you access to your SIM through your phone.
Only your network provider can provide you with your PIN and PUK codes.

Contact your network service provider customer care and they will provide you with your PUK code for free.

Thank you for using Fixya,
Kenneth.
