I would suggest you call your service provider, or go to the nearest service provider store...they usually can fix the issue and unblock your sim.

HAI SIR I AM NAGESWARA RAO 9848952263 my phone is blocked and idea subscriber...Hi PUK code is called as PERSONNAL UNBLOCKING KEY. Your phone will ask for PUK code when you entered the PIN code wrongly...


Hi rams1989ind ,

All you need to do , is contact your Idea helpline , go through a security check of your personal identity and ask them for the PUK number and they should give it to you.

In case they are unable to give it to you on the phone then you can visit the nearest idea gallery and get the PUK number.

Remember Entering PUK number incorrectly for multiple times, will eventually get your sim blocked and then you will need to buy a new sim card.

Hope this helps...:) Your feedback would be appreciated.

Why is my Nokia phone asking for a PUK code?


The PUK code is an 8-digit code from your service provider used to change a disabled Personal Identification Number (PIN) code. The PUK code will be requested when an incorrect PIN is entered multiple times. Please contact your service provider for this PUK code.
If you have already contacted your service provider and the PUK code provided did not work, it will be necessary to obtain a new Subscriber Identity Module (SIM) Card from your service provider. The PUK code is used to protect your phone from unauthorized access and if multiple attempts at entering the PUK code occur, the SIM card will become inactive for your protection.

Puk code problem


Hi aliejalloh ,

A quick solution for you :-

  1. Call up the SIM card's service provider using your friends cell phone and ask them for the PUK code.
  2. You will be asked about your information for an ID check and then you will be given the PUK code which you can use and unlock your phone, remember when you input wrong codes multiple times, your SIM card will eventually get blocked and then you would have to buy a new SIM card.

Hope this helps , thanks for the question.

Hi,

When you enter the SIM card PIN incorrectly 3 times then the SIM will become blocked.

You can unblock the SIM card by entering the PUK code.

Please contact your phone network provider and they will give you the PUK code.

My phone says PUK blocked and i dont know wat to do so could you please help me and wat does PUK means.


Hi
PUK is when you have incorrectly entered your SIM's pin number. After 3 failed attempts it will start asking for the PUK code before the phone can start up. If you keep on entering PIN incorrectly a further 10 times it will permanently block the SIM, which is irreversible! If you have on screen PUK BLOCKED, I expect you have gone too far. You will need to speak to your network operator and see if they can replace your SIM for you, but I am afraid you would have lost any numbers in your address book that was stored on the sim!

Puk blocked


Hi and welcome to FixYa,

A PUK (Personal Unblocking Key) is the code required for enabling/unlocking a sim card. This disabling/lock is a result of erroneously entering the PIN (Personal Identification Number) multiple times. Depending on the SIM card issuer, erroneously entering the PUK code multiple times would result to a permanently blocked/disabled SIM card. The PUK code is an OTW (one time write) only and therefore the only way to open the card is with the PUK code.

In all instances, it has nothing to do with the phone itself but with the SIM card, hence, the LG Vu CU920 would still work with another SIM card.

Hope that this be of initial help/idea. Good luck and thank you for using FixYa.
