Hi,
Let me give you a little background and then some solutions. This 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

I dont know whats my PUK code for nokia asha 300. HELP?


Call up your network provider for the puk code! PUK code is required when you fail to enter the correct security key asked after the phone is turned on. There is no need to worry on this, simple call up your network provider and they will give you the PUK code for your device.

My phone is asking for a PUK code and i dont know why


Typically, the phone will require a PUK code when you have entered your normal pin code incorrectly three times in a row. You can only get a PUK code from your service provider (not the camera maker).

Sim rejected!


the pack that your sim card came in, go through it and there should be atleats 3 different codes not necessarily together but one of them is your puk code so you would need to phone your sim card company and tell them the problem and tell them the code.

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.
