Hi,

The phone asks for PUK code ( Personal Unblocking Key )what does enter puk mean? - c85fe00.pngif a wrong PIN code is entered repeatedly

PUK code is related to the SIM card you are using in your phone and not the phone itself.
You will have to contact the Customer support of your cellular service provider and they will provide you with the PUK code free of charge.

Please note: Entering a wrong PUK code ten times in a row permanently disables the SIM card. Soc85fe00.png please be careful while entering the PUK code

Hope you will find this information helpful. Thanks for using FixYa

It is asking for a PUK code after i put in the phone unlock code. Wat is the PUK code


PUK stands for Pin Unblocking Key,this PUK code is used if wrong PIN (Personal Identification Number)code is entered for several try's.It means if you enter PIN for more than 3x,the simcard will be blocked and ask you to enter the PUK code as what is explain above.

Usually this PUK code is on the package together with your simpack when you bought it. in your phone case,you need to enter the PUK code to unblock the PIN so you can access the simcard data's and features,otherwise,if you lost your PUK code, just contact your service provider and ask for your PUK code.



hope it helps...

How to unblock puk


Hello,

If your phone comes up with a display requesting for the PUK code, then it means your sim card is already locked and you need to type your unblocking code to get it opened.

The PUK means personal unblocking key. It is found inside the sim pack on the sim carrier where you broke out your sim card from. There are some numbers on it, Your mobile number, your pin code your PUK code which mostly used to be 8 digits and your bar code at the bottom of the sim carrier.

Enter the 8 digit code that is on the sim card carrier, that is your PUK code, then you enter a new password, then it will prompt you to re-enter it, then your sim will be unblocked. Be sure to enter a code that you will find easy to remember, if not the sim will be blocked again and you will be requiring the PUK code to unblock it.

If you do not have the Sim carrier, then you have to contact the service providers customer care so they will give it to you.

Take care and good luck

I am getting a message PIN Code Blocked. Enter PU...


It means that the usual PIN code used to unlock the phone has been entered incorrectly too many times. To get around this you must ask the network provider for a PUK code which unblocks the SIM and allows the user to set a new PIN code.

On most phones, the PIN only applies to the SIM, not the phone, so if you fit another SIM card you can continue to use the phone but will have a new phone number.

What does PUK Blocked mean


It means the puk has been entered in wrong more than 3 times and you must now get a new sim card


Typically when a phone is asking for a PUK code it means you have tried to edit or set the secuirty pin code. Unfortunately these codes are already predefined by the sim card and the service provider. It gives you the sensation that you can set or change the code but you cannot. You get 3 attempts to enter the correct code after which the phone asks for a PUK code. When it asks for the PUK you also get three tries to undo it. Again PUK codes are predefined by the sim card and the service provider. If you call your service providers technical support number or customer service number they can provide you with the PUK or the PIN code.

>>>> Once the PUK has been entered in wrong 3 times the sim card is shot and deactivated. At this point you will need to get a new sim card to get your phone up and running again. If you have numbers stored to your sim card and not to your phone you will have lost them.
