Hi,
Let me give you a little background and then some solutions. This is generic because I don't know your carrier. I've used ATT as an example.
Phones are naturally unlocked, but a service provider might lock them
When originally manufactured, all GSM cell phones are unlocked. That is, they can be used with any SIM from any cellphone service provider - always assuming, of course, that the cellphone service provider has compatible GSM service on the same frequency bands that the phone can operate on.
Most cell phone service providers electronically 'lock' the phone so that it can only be used with their service. There are obvious reasons why they choose to do this - in particular, to force you to pay what are usually very high roaming charges when you take your phone out of their network and use it elsewhere in the world.
Fortunately, this locking is reversible. With some phones, it is possible to simply enter an unlocking password code into the phone and it is immediately then unlocked. Other phones need to be connected up to a special unlocking data terminal.
Your phone has to be unlocked by the carrier. LG, Motorala, Sony Ericsson, Nokia and most of their ilk, will not give consumers the unlock codes but don't despair.
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 carrier. For example, if you have AT&T to unlock your SIM card, you can obtain your phone's PUK code from AT&T by:

  • logging in to your myWireless Account online
  • using their Technical Support Chat
  • calling Customer Care at 1-800-331-0500
To get your phone's PUK code online from ATT:
  • Log in to your myWireless Account.
  • Select My Services under My Account.
  • From the My Services screen, select My Phone/Device.
  • Select Unblock SIM Card.
  • The Unblock SIM screen will display your PUK code.


Once you receive your PUK code, you will need to enter it into your phone to set a new PIN code. Note: If you enter the wrong ATT 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." There are three other ways to unlock a phone:
  • The carrier will unlock the phone for you at one of its retail outlets;
  • You can do it yourself by clicking on this link Free Unlock Codes ,
  • Pay $3.89 at the following website: www.theunlockshack.com/.

I trust that this is helpful and solves your problem. All the best

Puk blocked


For PUK codes, you can attempt 10x to enter the PUK codes in your phone. Once you enter incorrect PUK codes 10x,you'll recieve PUK blocked then what you need is to enter the PUK2. Make sure that you will enter the PUK2 correctly because if you enter incorrect PUK codes 10x,you'll recieve PUK BLOCKED error again. This time,you need to ask your service provider for SIM replacement.

I do not know puk code


hi,
If you attempt to enter wrong PIN code more than 3 times, then your pin code will be blocked and you need to enter PUK code to unlock it.

You can get your PUK code by calling to your mobile operator's customer care.

In you attempt to enter wrong PUK code for many times, then your whole SIM card will be blocked and you cannot unlock it. Getting a duplicate SIM card is the only solution if your SIM card is blocked.

I hope this is helpful to you.
Thanks

My vodafone sim is blocked.asking for puk no.and the pin


The PUK code can be onbtained only from the network service provider (e.g. if the SIM card was issued by Orange you would need to contact Orange for the PUK code). Once you have your PUK code you enter it and the phone will prompt you to set a new PIN.

I neeed a PUK numer for an ORANGE sim card


Hi,


PIN CODE is SIM dependenet and not phone dependent

PUK code in PIN UNLOCKING CODE, which is required when you give PIN number wrongly for 3 times,
This code is OPERATOR specific and not phone specific and you have to call you operator and get PUK if PIN is blocked...

if you provide PUK code wrongly for 10 times, you sim may become useless, then you have to buy new SIM

NOTE: You should ask your service provider,get the PUK,


ENJOY! RATE THIS SOLUTION
