My nephew entered a code on my phone, so now it's locked, he dont remember the number. how do I unlock my samsung phone


If you enter a wrong PIN code too many times, usually three, your SIM will lock itself. This protects you from someone using your personal information or making calls if your cell phone is lost or stolen. You may see "PIN blocked" or Enter PUK code" on your cell phone display. The PUK code stands for PIN Unblocking Key. In the U.S., the PUK code is rarely provided when you get your subscription.

If you do not have your PUK code, contact the Customer Care customer again. Give them your phone number and once they are sure it is really you, they will give you the PUK code.
You will then be asked to set a new PIN code. Once you have your PUK be sure to keep it in a safe place

I dont know the PUK code and i only have 3 trys left out of the 10


Hi, PUK means "Personal Unlocking Key" and it is asked if you enter wrong pin for three times. You are then given 10 attempts to enter the PUK. (it is printed on the voucher of sim card when you have purchased the sim) Your sim card will be blocked permanently if you still entered incorrect PUK code after the 10th attempt.
And if ever you lost the voucher you have only 2 ways to get rid of the PUK code:
1. Replace the sim card or 2. Call the phone company that released the sim card. They will give you the PUK code once you give them your account details and they have confirmed your identity.
Hope this can help you, GoodLuck=)

I need my puk number


Hello i hope u 'll be fine.... thanks for using fixya.

As soon as you type three times wrong security codes, the phone gets blocked and ask u for the PUK.
  • Simple solution is go to your service provider to unlock that code, They 'll unblock the PUK free, Then u 'll be able to access your phone without the security code
Best of luck

Lost sim pin


If you have lost the PIN code, the only choice is entering the PIN three times so to trigger the PUK code request.

Once you get the PUK code request, the PUK code can be obtained contacting the company that released the SIM.

The only other alternative to find back a lost PIN is going to a Phone shop. They will do same things as above.

MEMORY CARD IS BLOCKED


Hi,

I think, you have accidentally locked your phone with PIN code lock and have tried more than three times of wrong entry of the PIN code. Then, you surely need the PUK. Otherwise, your problem may be different. In that case, do clarify more. :)

PUK code is to be supplied to you only by the Mobile Service Provider. Please contact service centre people and register a complaint through some other phone. Usually most of the service providers get back within a very short time.

:)

Have a nice time.
