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.

A PUK (PIN Unlock Key) code is required to unlock SIM cards that have become locked following three successive incorrect PIN entries. If your SIM card becomes locked, you will need to get a PUK code from AT&T to unlock your SIM card.

I turned off fone and forgot pin after 3 tries fone locked i have lost puk to unblock vodafone pin9231 fone number 918520365


puk code, personal unlocking key. It is sim card related / specific, if you take the sim card out from the phone, the phone will work with another sim card.

The puk comes up when the pin code has been entered wrong 3 times. To get the puk code for your sim card, you have to call the service provider of that sim card. They are the only ones who can provide you with the right puk code for that sim card.

The puk code may also have came with the documentation of the sim card, if its a prepaid card the puk code comes on the documents or on the box of the product.

if your unable to obtain the puk code, get a new sim card.


also entering the puk code wrong too many times will eventually ruin the sim card forcing you to buy or contact your service provider for a new sim card.

My fone just got fixed and i lost my mxit. I can't remember my pin. I can't sms pin to 34006 because my mxit number is different to my fone number. my mxit number is 0761300441 plz help


If you have lost your pin then you can enter the pin 3 times, util the PUK lock appears. Then you unlock the PUK calling the phone company that provided the SIM card inside your phone (eg Vodafone, Telecom, Tmobile, Orange, AT&T etc.).

Calling the phone company is the standard procedure to unlock a SIM card, however, if you do not want to call the company you can just replace the SIM card with one compatible with the phone, as PIN and PUK codes are related to SIM, and not to the phone.
