The PUK code will be either written in the contract if you are on a contrat/Plan phone, or you will have to contact your service provider and they should give you the PUK code. You will need your account details if you are ringing your service provider.
Puk code, personal unlocking key. It is sim card related / spesific, if
you take the sim card out from the phone, the phone will work with
another sim card.
The puk comes up when the pin code has been
entered wrong 3 times. To get the puk code for your sim card, you have
to call the service provider of that sim card. They are the only ones
who can provide you with the right puk code for that sim card.
You can ring Orange customer services, on 07973 100 150 (Contract) or 07973 100 450 (Pay as You Go) give them your details and they will provide the PUK, once you have that enter the wrong pin a few times and it will ask for the PUK
