PUK stands for Personal Unblocking Key, and it's a code that's associated with a mobile phone SIM card.

If you do not know the PUK you will need to contact the Network Operator that the SIM card is provided by and they will give you the code when you provide proof of identity.

Hi.my step daughter has locked herself out of her phone and we dont know wot the puk code is. for a pink flip samsung phone gte1150i please can you help


Hi there.

As much as we want to provide you a PUK code, PUK codes are sim card dependent. It is not like locked phone that we can unlock using codes or apps. The PUK code can be found in the sim package. It is on the card where you took out the sim card. If you no longer have it, you can call your service provider and ask for it.


Hope this helps.

Thank you!

My phone is saying puk lock wot can i do


Call your service provider and politely ask them for a PUK unlock code so you can use the phone on their network. If it is a phone they offer, or a variant of it, they most often can generate the code.

My samsung sgh z-400 mobile ask for puk code when i try to switch on


Hi
PUK code is called as PERSONNAL UNBLOCKING KEY.
Your phone will ask for PUK code when you entered the PIN code wrongly several times depending upon the mobile make. The mobile asks for PUK code so that unauthorized persons do not use your mobile for wrong cause.
To get PUK code please contact your service provider through phone or go directly to their office. They will provide you the PUK code for your mobile. The PUK code for mobile phone.so that you can open your phone. When you planning to call your service provider you cannot use your mobile as it is fully locked. Please use some other mobile with same network to call your service provider.
While you get the PUK code ,the service provider customer care officer will ask for your personal details to check whether the mobile belongs to you only. If they are satisfied with your answers they will provide with the PUK code
DONOT enter the PUK code several times wrongly,It will block your sim card permanently.
This PUK code is FREE. You no need to pay any sum to get the PUK code
Thank You.

I went on the pin lock option of my phone and put a PUK code of 88888888 and when i switched off and tried switching on again it said enter PUK code when i do then it asks for pin number! when i enter that...


hi you can not change your puk code your network provider knows that code they can give you this
what has happened because you tried to chane it its asking for the real code.You may still be able to use another sim because the puk codes are on the sim cards and a new card would not have been tempered with .
hope this helps

Wots my puk code for my samsung c3050


Hi the PUK code is the security code for the sim card its not a code for the phone so the good news is your phone is working and is not locked.

The only way of getting the PUK code is to call your service provider and give them either your phone number or the number off the sim card they will then give you the PUK code for free over the phone, its just a security feature to stop people using your sim card should your phone get stolen

your service provider wont charge you a penny for giving you this code as it belongs to your sim card so they have to tell you. some service providers have a feature on their web site that lets you get your own PUK code via their site but you would have to check this.

the other option you have is if you dont need to use the sim card thats asking for the PUK code then you can just get a new sim card, the new sim card will come with its own PUK code and it will be written on a piece of card that the sim card was stuck to

so you have 2 options call your service provider or get another sim card.
the best solution would be to give your service provider a call as they wont charge for giving you the code.

let me know if you need further assistance ok

plz rate this solution as i have a whole page of unrated posts, thanks

Puk codes


When you enter a wrong Pin code three times, the phone goes in lock mode, and ask you for the puk code.

The puk code was enclosed with the original sim card documentation.

If you lost it the only ways to recover the PUk code are either paying a phone shop (they will phone virgin), or calling virgin mobile customer service by yourself. They will ask your personal details, and retrieve the PUK code from database.
