you need to contact your cellphone operator and ask for the puk code (or you can find it on the envelope of the sim card). Beware, after 10 wrong puk inputs, your sim card will be unusable !

Call your service provider for the PUK code.
Your service provider know the PUK, Personal Unlocking Key, for that sim card.
Do not attempt to put in any more codes, after ten attempts, the sim card is permanent lock and will become unusable.

How can i get PUK code for my w595??

Puk code means Personal unlocking key and depends on the sim card. When you insert 3 times a wrong ping, the sim card will lock with PUK code. If puk code is entered 10 times wrong your sim card will be unusable until your service provider will replace it with a new one. Only your service provider can provide you the PUK code to unlock your sim.

My puk lock is on wat is the code

PUK means Personal Unblocking Key and is provided by the network operator. If you insert PIN 3 times wrong, the PIN will be blocked and PUK kicks in. If PUK is inserted 10 times wrong, the SIM card will be unuseable.

My mobile show message of enter pukcode:

PUKCODE = Phone Unlock Key Code.

You have likely inserted a SIM that is foreign or unknown to the phone (maybe from different provider?).

If you enter this code 3 (maybe 5) times in error, the sim will be burned (unuseable).

I need to unlock the PUK code on my samsung phone.

It's not the problem with your phone, contact the customer care of your service provider (network operator), and tell them your problem, they will give you the number instantly. If you enter wrong/random numbers several times, your sim card will be unusable. Good luck

I need apuk code for my vodafone sim

Default is always 12345678 then it asks you for new PIN. Enter 0000 and enter 0000 again to confirm but if it says incorrect PUK, please stop there and call vodafone customer care line using a different (friends maybe) phone and ask them for correct PUK. they will give it to you FREE.
Be carefull because putting in an invalid PUK code many times can make your simcard permanentlly unusable!!!

Puk code unlock

you must call AT&T for this code. there is no other way to get it. also if you fail all the trails for the code it will void your SIM card making it completely unusable thus losing everything on it as well. and you will have to buy a new one.
