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.

Puk code for htc


Hi,

PUK code is a SIM specific code assigned by your service provider so call Customer care and state the problem then they will ask for some codes written on you SIM card. Few people use PIN locking system to lock their phone to avoid un-authorised access. Though this is a good option, it gives off sometime. Three wrong entry of PIN code will result in SIM blocking. Once SIM gets blocked, phone starts asking PUK code to enter. If you again enter wrong code for three times, SIM gets completely blocked. You have to walk into your service provider outlet to get a replacement SIM card.
I think it may help you.

Sim blocked


Hello,

A sim block usually indicates that your wireless provider has put a block on your account. There are also certain applications associated with wireless phones in which a user can set up their phone and lock it remotely, or block many of the features accessible on it.

I would start with your wireless network carrier. Ask them why the SIM card is blocked.

I've blocked my uninor sim card pin code.. So i want to know wats d puk to un block my sim.. Plz assist me.. My uninor number is 9060459739


Hi The PUK code is being requested by the SIM card - all you need to do is call your service provider and ask them for the PUK and to reset your sim, there is no charge for this - and many people do it by mistake, it was because you entered the incorrect sim code more than 3 times.

My sim has blocked and i dont have the code to un block it lol


Once your sim card is blocked, u cannot unlock it. Now U have to go to your service provider and ask for a new sim card..( u will be given a new card with your existing number).

As Omkar rightly mentioned that once you enter PUK code wrongly for more than 3 times, the sim card automatically gets blocked.
Now the sim card in your cell phone is nothing but a useless one. You will get a new one from the network provider.
Actually the same thing had happened to one of my friends and he got it done in Rs.100/- only.
So don't worry...just go to the service provider now and get a replacement.

I hope I could help you!

Sim card and unlock feature


SIM cards can only be unblocked by the Service Provider (cingular, t-mobile, etc). They have a specific code based on the SIM card number. If you have entered the incorrect code more that 5 times, you will invariably incapacitate the SIM card. Contact your providers support department, or go to the store and they should be able to take care of it for you. Best of Luck.
