PUC Code:: DO NOT attempt to gusee your PUC. Doing so incorrectly 10 times will damage your SIM card and may damage your phone.

The ONLY way to obtain your PUC code is to contact your cellular service provider and request Tech Support assistance. Once they verify that you are the owner of the phone, they'll provide you with a PUC code which you'll enter on your handset.

Then, you'll have the opportunity to change your PIN.. Make sure you choose one you'll remember and write it down.

Do not attempt to purchase an unlock code off the Internet to use as your PUC code. It will not work.

And, you can ask Tech Support any other questions you need answers to while you have them on the phone. (MMS Settings, etc.)

Tip

What is PUK code. How to get this?


A Pin Unlock Code (PUC) or Pin Unlock Key (PUK) is used in GSM mobile phones and some smartcards to unblock a blocked SIM card.
The basic of PUK code is,
  • SIM cards have their own security
  • on startup SIM cards ask for PIN code (4 digit)
  • If user enters it correctly then its accessible
  • If user enters it incorrectly 3 times (in some 7 times) PIN code is blocked. To stop brute force attempt.
  • Blocked PIN code is unlocked through PUC (Pin Unlock Code) or alternatively called PUK Pin Unlock Key which is 8 digit.
  • If PUK is entered correctly user sets new PIN code and SIM is accessible.
  • If PUK is entered incorrectly 3 times, then SIM is no longer usable or accessible and any data in it is lost.
  • Sim card security is managed by their providers which are usually network companies like vodafone, 3G, Orange and Virgin or T mobile etc... (Whatever is yours like U-Fone, Warid etc....)
  • NO ONE else can give PUK code. YOU HAVE TO ASK YOUR SERVICE PROVIDER/NETWORK for PUK.

Require PUK for LG500 Xenon


Puk means personal unlocking key..
It is found on your sim card documents..
If you dont have that then call for your sim service provider and give the details of sim card owner..
They will verify your details and give you the puk code..
However you have 10 attempts to find the puk code..
On the 10th attempt your card will be blocked if you do not provide the correct code..
Then you need to buy a new one from your sim service provider..
Thank you for using fixya..
Please rate me on fixya to continue my future assistance..

Orange Sim Card, PUK code needed...


Hi,
As ginko correctly said above, The PUK is exclusive to your sim card, not your actual phone.
Easiest option is to obtain the PUK from Orange customer services. Call 450 from anothe Orange handset, or 07973 100450 from a landline.
Make a note of your PUK when you get it, because it will always remain the same (for that sim card)

Need unlock code for sony ericsson z550a for a tmobile SIM


Hi, If you get error message as PIN blocked. Unlock?" You have entered the wrong PIN code too many times. You need to unlock your phone using the PUK (PIN Unlocking Key) code. Your PUK code is provided by your network operator. If you get error message as Insert correct SIM" You have inserted a SIM card that is not supported. Insert correct SIM card, or contact your Service Provider for a SIM unlock code. If you get error message as Phone locked" or "Enter PIN" Your phone is locked and you need to unlock it with your personal PIN. The default PIN is '0000', but you or your network operator may have changed it. I Hope it helped you. Thank you for using ' Fixya ' and have a nice day!!

Pin is blocked want,s me to enter puk


the PUK code is a "personal unlock key" assigned by a service provider to individual sim cards. This code was installed on the card to allow access to a device that has received multiple incorrect unlock queries. since these unlock key are unique to each sim card the only way to obtain the key is by calling the service provider imprinted on the sim card and request the PUK code. THey will ask you for the sim number and give you the code providing you can supply the correct verification info required by that company.

Hi I have a nokia 6110 navigator and i tried to unlock my phone with the correct PUK number from my service provider but failed... it is now totally stuck on a message saying "sim card rejected" - can you...


PUK means "personal unlocking key" .

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

You need to call the phone company that released the SIM card, they can retrieve the puk code from a database for free.

In your case you need to contact your SIM card 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.
