You will need to look at the back of your simcard holder or contact your mobile service provider for assistance

Hi 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.....

Hi my 9 yr old son has been mesing about with his phone and now its sayin 10 attempts to enter puk but we dont know it please help


PUK is the property of your SIM card. If you enter wrong SIM PIN no. 3 times then you'll be asked to enter PUK code and if you enter wrong PUK code 10 times then your SIM could be deactivated.
Usually PUK is written in the intial SIM card package by your carrier.

You will need to speak to someone from your carrier to get/reset your PUK code.

Hope this helps! If it did, feel free to rate :)

I went to menu and my nokia phone popped up a message saying pin number and I dont know what that means


Hi there,
Someone must have activated the PIN lock or the SIM lock. If you have entered the PIN incorrectly for 3 times, you will need the PUK to unlock it. The PUK code can be obtained from your phone provider.
Good luck!

I dont know what a puk code is and my phone wont unlock please help me!!!!!!! :(


Hi,

PUK code and PIN Code:

Please dont try more than 3 times.If you try more than 3 times the Sim will get locked.And it will ask for PIN code.Both these PUK and PIN code can be given only by the network service provider. Please call the network service provider of your mobile.And ask him to provide the PUK code or PIN code.He will ask you some basic details like name,date of birth for his verification.And he will provide you the PUK and PIN code.This is done for free of cost.

Please do rate the solution if the issue is resolved or post a comment for further assistance.


Thank you for using fixya have a nice day:-)

I dont know the pin code to my nokia music


Hi,
PIN CODE is SIM dependenet and not phone dependent

PUK code in PIN UNLOCKING CODE, which is required when you give PIN number wrongly for 3 times,
This code is OPERATOR specific and not phone specific and you have to call you operator and get PUK if PIN is blocked...

if you provide PUK code wrongly for 7 time, you sim may become useless, then you have to buy new SIM

NOTE: You should ask your service provider,get the PUK, give the PIN 3 times wrongly and it asks for PUk,provide the PUK and set the new PIN..

My lg shine keeps telling me to put in a puk code but i dont know the puk is on my phone


HI,

PUK means "personal unlocking key" .

The PUK code is asked if you enter a wrong pin 3 times.

You need to call your phone service company, they can retrieve the puk code from a database
for free.

In your case you need to contact your SIM card phone provider technical support to unlock the SIM.


The PIN and PUK are related to the SIM card, not to the phone.

If you replace the SIM card with a different one, then the phone should not ask for the PUK anymore.


thank you,
