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.

My mobile model is SAMSUNG SGH-L700. Now my phone is asking PUK code. I would like to know PUK code.


Hi, Puk code comes up when a phone requires a pin code and you time in the wrong three times precisely, it will ask for a Puk code.

Puk codes issues are Sim card problems not from the phone. You can unlock the code by checking on your Sim pack .When you bought the sim card it usually comes with a Puk code on the card. So check the card you will see the Puk code, enter the Puk code and after entering it, it will ask you for the pin number,it usually on the pack too.

Also if you don';t have the sim pack any more, you can simply contact the sim card service center for help. Might be through phone call. Get a friends phone the uses the same network with your sim card and use it to contact them. Or you could properly go the nearest outlet around and ask them for help..

Call is free..

Thanks for using fixya....

Dear reader, i need puk number as my sim blocked and need puk number to enter but unfortunately i lost pin and puk numbers..here is my sim number will you please send me puk number 899660186001043227


hi,

You can locate your PUK usually it is included in your sim card kit when you purchase it. if you lost it already, this is the last thing we can do. Contact your operator customer care or visit them and ask for your PUK code and they are very glad to help you. they will ask you several questions pertaining to your account to verify if you are the real owner. You can also get it on-line on most operator if they have this service at their website.

Once you receive your PUK code, you will need to enter it into your phone to set a new PIN code.

Don't forget to rate me OK! thanks...

Note: If you enter the wrong PUK code 10 times in a row, your SIM card will be invalidated, and you will need to purchase a new SIM card. The phone will display the following error: "PUK blocked call operator."

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 your SIM card Customer Care.

regards,

John

I forgot the sim pin of my motorola v188 phone


Hello my Friend,
If it's the SIM card PIN that you forgot, there is no way to unlock it except if you have the PUK.
Usually when you get an new SIM card, you get with it 2 codes, the PIN and the PUK. So when you forgot and you enter a wrong PIN 3 times. at that time the SIM card will ask you for a PUK code. be careful, because if you enter the a wrong PUK 3 times. there will be noway to unlock it even if you contact the service provider.
Now, if you don't have your PUK code or if your GSM service provide didn't provide you the PUK. you can simply give a call to their customer service and they send you the PUK via SMS.
Let me know if you have any additional question.
Best Regards,

My phone is asking for a PUK code, it was locked coz i forgot my pin code..phone is W850i..


Typically when a phone is asking for a PUK code it means you have tried to edit or set the secuirty pin code. Unfortunately these codes are already predefined by the sim card and the service provider. It gives you the sensation that you can set or change the code but you cannot. You get 3 attempts to enter the correct code after which the phone asks for a PUK code. When it asks for the PUK you also get three tries to undo it. Again PUK codes are predefined by the sim card and the service provider. If you call your service providers technical support number or customer service number they can provide you with the PUK or the PIN code.

>>>> Once the PUK has been entered in wrong 3 times the sim card is shot and deactivated. At this point you will need to get a new sim card to get your phone up and running again. If you have numbers stored to your sim card and not to your phone you will have lost them.

I dont know what my PUK codes is


Normal 0 false false false MicrosoftInternetExplorer4 /* Style Definitions */ table.MsoNormalTable {mso-style-name:"Table Normal"; mso-tstyle-rowband-size:0; mso-tstyle-colband-size:0; mso-style-noshow:yes; mso-style-parent:""; mso-padding-alt:0in 5.4pt 0in 5.4pt; mso-para-margin:0in; mso-para-margin-bottom:.0001pt; mso-pagination:widow-orphan; font-size:10.0pt; font-family:"Times New Roman"; mso-ansi-language:#0400; mso-fareast-language:#0400; mso-bidi-language:#0400;}


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.
