Hi johnni,
the puk or the pin unlock key is when you entered the wrong pin on the phone more than 3 times. To unlock it, you better call the customer service of your provider, which is vodafone, and ask for your puk. Accessing your puk is free. The vodafone site has an option to access the puk, just visit the vodafone site (example, if your from australia, vodafone.com.au then click on self service, then click on manage mobile settings online (including PUK), then click on learn more to activate your sim card using your PUK.
There are 3 ways to accessing your puk: the first is thru online: Register and/or login at My Vodafone. Once you've logged in, navigate to the My Vodafone menu (top of screen) and select 'My Phone Setup' then 'Settings Summary'. The PUK code is located under Mobile Information
second is thru email, on the contact us section provided on the site of vodafone
third is thru contacting vodafone.
once you have your PUK, enter the code on the phone, then you will be prompted to enter your chosen pin (4-8 characters) then re-enter your chosen pin then your phone should be working.
please take note that some motorolla and sagem phone require you to enter **05* before the PUK code.
many thanks, nina

Vodafone 345 Text. What is reset key?


Hi Kelani, If you've locked your phone through entering an incorrect pin number 3 times then you need a Puk code, Ring your service provider and they will give you the FREE Puk code.....
If you lock your phone again some time in the future and you're still with the same service provider you can use that same Puk code.. CHEERS..

What is PUK code. How to get this?


A Pin Unlock Code (PUC) or Pin Unlock Key (PUK) is used in GSM mobile phones and some smartcards to unblock a blocked SIM card.
The basic of PUK code is,
  • SIM cards have their own security
  • on startup SIM cards ask for PIN code (4 digit)
  • If user enters it correctly then its accessible
  • If user enters it incorrectly 3 times (in some 7 times) PIN code is blocked. To stop brute force attempt.
  • Blocked PIN code is unlocked through PUC (Pin Unlock Code) or alternatively called PUK Pin Unlock Key which is 8 digit.
  • If PUK is entered correctly user sets new PIN code and SIM is accessible.
  • If PUK is entered incorrectly 3 times, then SIM is no longer usable or accessible and any data in it is lost.
  • Sim card security is managed by their providers which are usually network companies like vodafone, 3G, Orange and Virgin or T mobile etc... (Whatever is yours like U-Fone, Warid etc....)
  • NO ONE else can give PUK code. YOU HAVE TO ASK YOUR SERVICE PROVIDER/NETWORK for PUK.

Default Pin & Security Codes for SIM cards


A number of networks still use a default pin on their SIM cards at the point of dispatch as a security precaution. If you lose or forget the PIN code it can be irritating.

Please note these PIN's will only work if you have NOT changed the default PIN. If you enter the PIN code incorrectly three times, a lock will be put onto the SIM card, and you need a PUK code to unlock it.

You can obtain your PUK by contacting your network service provider.

Default Network PIN Codes:

O2 = 0000/4321

Orange = 1111

Vodafone = 0000

Fresh = 1210

Virgin Mobile = 7890 / 1210

Vodafone = 0000

Talkmobile = 0000

3 = 0000

HI DEAR MY NO. IS 8802488291 I WANT PUK CODED


Hi i'm a mobile phone technician.

I Believe what you need is a PUK code for your mobile phone.

A PUK code is usually required when you have entered your pin code or lock code into your phone several times incorrectly, Thus locking your phone and then it asks for a PUK code.
The PUK code for your phone can be obtained from your mobile service provider, EG..... Vodafone.
So if Vodafone is your service provider ring Vodafone...etc.

They will provide you with the PUK code which you can enter into your phone via the keypad.

Hope this is useful for you.

Puk code for nokia 6300


Basically sir, PUK code is not asked by Cellphones, rather, by SIM cards, your SIM required 4 digit PIN code and someone entered it 3 times incorrectly and now its asking for PUK code and your service provider (means your network company like Vodafone, ROGERS etc) will give you 8 digit code (mostly free) and if you'll enter PUK 3 times incorrectly then you'll lose your SIM card and data in it.

Tocco lite phone freeze deactivate fail


here is some info on PUK codes:

try taking battery and SIM out waiting 15 seconds and powering cell back on.

In your case I believe your SIM is now FROZEN or locked. You mostlikely will need to purchase a new SIM card.

A PUK code (Pin Unlock Key) is required when you enter an incorrect PIN 3 times. After entering the wrong PIN 3 times, the card will be locked and you will need to get a PUK code from your service provider to unlock it.

If the wrong PUK code is entered ten times in a row, the SIM card becomes invalid and you will need to purchase a new SIM Card. The phone will display "PUK blocked call operator".

I need apuk code for my vodafone sim


Default is always 12345678 then it asks you for new PIN. Enter 0000 and enter 0000 again to confirm but if it says incorrect PUK, please stop there and call vodafone customer care line using a different (friends maybe) phone and ask them for correct PUK. they will give it to you FREE.
Be carefull because putting in an invalid PUK code many times can make your simcard permanentlly unusable!!!
