You have to call network service provider to get the PUK code.
Also, if you enter wrong PUK several times, the sim card will be blocked permanently and you have to get a new sim card.

Sims locked

Hi,

Subject: How to unlock a SIM card

Customer's exact description: sims locked

Discussion: Problems of this type can be easily solved. Customer did not provide the name of the service provider.

Solution: Provide instructions on the entire battery of solutions.


PUK Codes

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.

Since I don't know the name of you carrier, I'm using AT&T as an example. Most carriers use the same methodology though the wording may be different.

You can obtain your phone's PUK code from AT&T in one of these ways:

Take the phone into your carrier's retail outlet.

OR

• Log in to myAT&T online
• Use our Technical Support Chat.
• Contact Customer Care


To get your phone's PUK code online:

? Log in to myAT&T.
? From the myAT&T tab at the top of the page, hover over the Wireless link and select Phone/Device under the My Wireless Service heading.
? From the My Phone/Device screen, select the Unblock SIM Card link under the My Make & Model heading.
? The Unblock SIM screen will display your PUK code and will give you instructions for unblocking your SIM Card.

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 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."

Second Solution:
You can also do it without any assistance from anyone. However, be sure to read the following carefully because there are pitfalls. If you want to try to do it yourself, just click on the following link: Universal Software Solution for Unlocking a SIM Card

Although most people remember their primary SIM PIN code, those other codes - used for various verification purposes - are never to be found when needed. Below I've included a set of short codes which, when entered on a handset's standby screen, will let you easily change PIN and PUK (short for Pin Unlock Code) codes - but keep in mind, they may not work with all handsets and mobile operators.

More importantly, when changing one's PUK codes there'll be no help to get from the mobile operator if the new codes are forgotten, so make sure to write any changes down alongside the old PUK codes.

The Final Solution:
The following methodology does not work for every phone. Perhaps you'll be lucky. Also, please note that the codes should be entered without the spaces shown below.

Change SIM Card PIN
** 04 * old PIN * new PIN * new PIN #

Change SIM Card PIN 2 (Write down the new code)
** 042 * old PIN * new PIN * new PIN #

Change SIM Card PUK (Write down the new code)
** 05 * old PUK * new PUK * new PUK #

Change SIM Card PUK 2 (Write down the new code)
** 052 * old PUK * new PUK * new PUK #

Display Handset IMEI
*# 06 #

This was wordy but hopefully it helped you.

Hi,

My name is Ben and I'm your guru, i.e., mentor, an influential teacher or popular expert: a management guru. - origin from Sanskrit, 'weighty, grave', for today.

Problem areas: The question most honest people ask me is, "Is it legal to unlock a cell phone?" In Europe, the answer is generally yes. Though laws differ from country to country, they tend to favor consumers over companies. In the United States, the answer is also yes. The U.S. Copyright Office issues rulings every three years, and in 2006, they declared that unlocking a cell phone does not infringe on the copyright of the phone manufacturer or service provider, and therefore isn't prohibited.

In order to provide the customer with precise information, one must have the following information.

• Phone description including the make and model.
• The name of the subscriber's carrier (a.k.a. service provider).
• Information as to whether it is the phone or the SIM that is locked.

Possible solution: You can unlock your phone on your own. For some phones, you just have to enter a numeric code into the phone. I don't hand out these numbers because they vary from company-to-company and usually don't work, But if you have the patience, there are several instructional videos on www.youtube.com that provide some useful data. However, I don't recommend them because most of these videos are only free to look at. Yes they are trying to sell you something, like their service.

It is asking for a PUK code after i put in the phone unlock code. Wat is the PUK code


PUK stands for Pin Unblocking Key,this PUK code is used if wrong PIN (Personal Identification Number)code is entered for several try's.It means if you enter PIN for more than 3x,the simcard will be blocked and ask you to enter the PUK code as what is explain above.

Usually this PUK code is on the package together with your simpack when you bought it. in your phone case,you need to enter the PUK code to unblock the PIN so you can access the simcard data's and features,otherwise,if you lost your PUK code, just contact your service provider and ask for your PUK code.



hope it helps...

FORGOT PIN FOR IPHONE HELP RESET CODE


The pin code has nothing to do with your phone, it's about your sim-card. You need the puk-code for this problem. It's a 6 digits number, comes along with the pin-code. Try to find the card, on which your pin-code was written. It has the puk-code too. Enter the puk-code.
If you can't find it, you need another sim-card, a substitute card. This can be purchased from your carrier.
If the password you're talking about is the password of the iPhone itself, you can unlock your phone by connecting it to the iTunes, which has synced your phone.

I put a wrong pin for 3 times,so he ask me about puk codes and i forgot my puk codes i tries about 3 times again with wrong and he told me to put new pin codes and when i do it he say code error and now i...


If you try pin more than few predefined no of times your phone will ask PUK code which can also be given only by your service provider which is specific for each and every mobile number . Donot try PUK code many times or else your sim will be blocked and you will need a new sim.
Contact your sim customer care department over phone. Its free of cost to get the pin or puk no.

Go to the nearest service outlet of your service provider they can also help you.

There is no other go than the above procedure only your service provider can give it nobody else in this world nor any software.
