That is because you or someone else has tried to enter the PIN-code on the phone more than three times. This means that you will have to enter something called a PUK-code, which you probably got together with the SIM when you got it. But if you cannot find it, your best (and only) option is to contact your provider (like ATT or Verizon) for help.
Good luck! And please, if you find this comment useful rate it/give it thumbs up.

My Nokia Nuron 5230 phone is saying "PIN code blocked. Enter PUK code." What do I do?


Hi,PUK code can be given only by your service provider which is specific for each and every mobile number.

The puk code for telephone is the special code that allows you to do a master reset on the telephone. You will also need that number to unlock the telephone after it has been locked.

Contact your sim customer care department over phone. Its free of cost to get the pin or puk no.
If you cant contact through your phone get some other phone and contact them.

Go to the nearest service outlet of your service provider they can also help you.

There is no other go than the above procedure only your service provider can give
it nobody else in this world nor any software.


Take care.

My daughters phone says "pin blocked , enter PUK


The PUK code can be found in the packaging of the sim card when you first bought it.
Several wrong tries for a pin code can get the sim card blocked and only the PUK code can enable it for access. If you can't find the PUK code, you have to buy another sim card or if this is postpaid, you have to report it to your Telecom Operator.

I Need puk code for my sony ericsson k220i model


PUK means "personal unlocking key" .

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

You need to call your phone service company, they can retrieve the puk code from a database for free.

In your case you need to contact your SIM card phone provider technical support to unlock the SIM.


The PIN and PUK are related to the SIM card, not to the phone.

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