If you still have the card where you removed the simcard just check on it they write it there, or if you dropped the card then Visit You nearest customer service center they will unlock the simcard for you.

My mobile phone is locked! What are PIN and PUK codes?


When you purchase a SIM card you get a receipt on witch, depending on what company it is bought from, you will get a set of either one or two, 4 digit PIN and 13 digit PUK codes. If you put in wrong PIN code three times in a row then the SIM card will be locked "temporarily" and you will need to put in a PUK code to change the PIN code and unlock the SIM. If you enter the PUK code wrongly 10 times in a row your SIM card will be locked "Permanently" and has to be exchanged, In other words "Be more careful with PUK code!". Some companies do keep track of these codes some don't, If you have lost that piece of paper with codes on, you should contact your service/phone provider, if it is monthly paid contract you will most likely be able to get the PUK code from them if they don't have the code or your SIM card is " Prepaid" then they may charge you about 10-20 bucks to send you a new SIM card and a new set of codes.

I accidently locked my lg esteem phone it wont read the sim card how can i fix it?


PUK stands for Personal Unblocking Key. This is a unique eight-digit code specific to your SIM card. This is required when the PIN number to unlock your mobile phone is entered incorrectly 3 times. You are then given 10 attempts to enter your PUK code. If an incorrect PUK code is entered after the 10th attempt, you will block your SIM card permanently and will require a new SIM card from your mobile phone provider.
PUK codes can be obtained through the following ways - The PUK code is in your SIM card documentation Starter Pack. If you do not have this then - Please contact your phone service provider.
Your cell phone service provider can give you the PUK code once you give them your account details and they have confirmed your identity. For details to obtain the PUK code for the SIM card, please click on this link and follow my instructions.

These directions are for an AT and T phone, but other than that would be the same for any carrier.

A PUK (PIN Unlock Key) code is required to unlock SIM cards that have become locked following three successive incorrect PIN entries. If your SIM card becomes locked, you will need to get a PUK code from your phone carrier to unlock your SIM card.

You can obtain your phone's PUK code from your carrier in one of these ways:

Log in to Your account.online

Use a Technical Support Chat

Contact your carriers Customer Care

Get Your Phone's PUK Code Online

Go to the Phone/Device page.

From the My Phone/Device screen, select the Unblock SIM Card link under the My Make & Model heading.

The Unblock SIM screen will display your PUK code and will give you instructions for unblocking your SIM Card.

Once you receive your PUK code, you will need to enter it into your phone to set a new PIN code.

Note: If you enter the wrong PUK code 10 times in a row, your SIM card will be invalidated, and you will need to purchase a new SIM Card. The phone will display the following error: "PUK blocked call operator

Puk code locked


you have entered the pin code wrong 3 times now you are required to enter a puk code to reset the pin code. 

The puk code is sim card spesific it comes with the sim card when you get it or you can get it by calling your phone service provider of the sim card to get the puk code. 


if you have entered the puk code wrong too many times you will make the sim card useless and you will have to contact your phone service provider for a new sim card, it will probably cost.

Puk code


A PUK code is required if the wrong PIN number is entered too many times incorrectly. If the wrong PUK is entered too many times the SIM will be permanently blocked.
PUK codes are unique to SIM card. Contact your carrier for the correct code to reset your pin.
