Hello,

Here is what you need to know about PUK code;

When a PIN code is entered wrongly three times, the phone line will be blocked. Irrespective of the owner, it is assumed that you are not the owner of the phone line when you enter your pin wrongly.

The blocked line at this point can still be unblocked and this is where the PUK code comes in. Once you enter the PUK code, your PIN code will be reset. You can then create a ne PIN code.

To get your PUK code, if your phone is using a SIM Card, Check the SIM card Pack and you will see your PUK code there. But if you don't have a SIM card pack, you can get the PUK code from your service provider.

Call the customer care line of your service provider using another phone, request for your PUK code and it will be given to you. Note that your service provider will ask you some few questions about your line in order to be sure you are the real owner.

Note that your service provider alone is the only one that can give you your PUK code because it's only your service provider that has it.

Good luck.

My phone: Nokia 8800. always ask "input PUK code", but i have no code.


It's not the phone per se, it's actually the SIM card. Your SIM card is asking for the PUK code because it has reached the maximum allowable amount of SIM code tries. If you bought a pre-paid kit the PUK code usually is provided in the package, better yet if you're on a post-paid line the PUK code will be provided by your carrier.
Hope this helps!

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.
Your cell phone service provider can give you the PUK code once you give themyour account details and they have confirmed your identity.

My phone says" PIN blocked,


Hello and Welcome to FixYa!

Just relax, PINs and PUK codes are your right to know. They are unique for every connection. You can never get it from anywhere in the world except the Operators.

All you have to do is to call the service providers like T-mobile, Orange from landline or other cellphone and ask for the PIN and PUK agaisn that connection (SIM card). They will first authenticate your ownership and will give you your code in return.


I hope you will have a clear picture now.

When i startup my phone (Samsung SGH-i450) it asks for my PUK code, to which i enter my default PUK code. Then it asks for a new code and to verify the code. Even after entering the new code and verifying...


A request for a PUK code ("Personal Unlocking Key") will appear on your phone if your SIM card PIN code is entered 3 consecutive times incorrectly.

Your SIM card will then become "PUKed" or Blocked. This is a security measure to protect your service.

You need to call the Customer Service department of your cell phone provider and they will give you the PUK code which will unblock your SIM card.
