Hi There,

  • This is a usual problem which occurs when an incorrect code is entered multiple times , when the phone is requesting for a PUK code,and eventtually the SIM card getls blocked after multiple incorrect codes or gets rejected.
  • May people are not aware from where can they get this PUK code,
  • The PUK code is provided by the SIM card's service provider , for instance , if your SIM card belongs to vodafone , then you need to call up vodafone customer service or helpline number and they will give you the PUk code after a usual ID check.
  • I would also like to inform you that people usually ask for a PUK code when their SIM card is locked and it's requesting a PUK code so they use their friend's cell phone to call up the customer care asking for help , however you can get the PUK code on the very day when you bring a new SIM card by asking the relevant executive in the service provider's gallery or calling up customer care.
  • Now all you need to do is get a new sim card , and ask for the PUK code to the service provider so that you can keep it stored to avoid future mishaps.
Hope this helps ...:) Your feed back would be appreciated.

What is the p.u.k. # for a samsung sgh-t105g IMEI# 356622/04/180178/9


PUK - code kotroy must be granted by the operator when buying a phone connection.Without this code, or ten times you enter an incorrect PUK, your phone will becompletely blocked!

Every time the telephone, you must obtain your PIN-code (4 to 8 digits), except forsituations when you unplug the PIN-code request the appropriate setting your phone.Be careful when typing PIN-code! If the code is typed incorrectly three times in succession, SIM-card is automatically blocked.

To unlock your phone you will need:
- Enter PUK1 and click "OK"
- Enter the new PIN-code and press "OK"
- Press to confirm

To set the code provided 10 attempts. If the 10 times you've dialed is incorrect PUK-code - card is blocked completely, and you have to buy a new SIM-card. Recover PINcodes and PUK-if you have forgotten them - can be turned into a subscription service.You can disable the PIN-code request, but then the protection against unauthorized use of SIM-card will not be provided.

I locked my self outta my phone how do i reset pin


If you forgot your PIN [which means if you entered your PIN code incorrectly 3 times], you will have to enter your PUK code (PIN unblocking key). The PUK code is found at your SIM card pack if you brought yours. After you entered your PUK code correctly, you will be able to reset your PIN code.

Just be aware: If you entered your PIN code incorrectly 3 times, the message says 'SIM card blocked' and you will have to enter your PUK code. If you entered your PUK code incorrectly 10 times, then the message says 'SIM card rejected'.

If your SIM card is rejected, you will have to buy a replacement SIM on your phone store.

BUT:

If the problem is your phone all you need to do is visit the network provided by your phone. You need to get the unlock code for your phone. What is the model of your phone if you don't mind. So that I can help you get the site on how to unlock code.

Hope this will help.

Thanks.

Pin code blocked and then sim card rejected


Hi

You can obtain the puk code by contacting your phone service provider.

If you have entered the puk code wrong too many times (tried to guess it) the sim card has disabled itself, and its useless, you will have to contact your phone service provider to obtain another sim card.

I've explained more about it here
