Both your questions relate to your service provider.
Contact them and tell them your phone was stolen and your account needs to be closed.
Your boyfriend needs to contact his service provider and get his puk number so he can unlock his simcard. That is what I do when my simcard locks.

SOURCE: Need PUK code, T-Mobile SIM is deactivated (cancel line)

  1. Contact your cellular service provider and have it provide you with a new SIM card. Let it know your account and phone number so that it can transfer your phone service to the new SIM card.
  2. Check the manual that came with your phone to see if the SIM card is found in the standard location beneath the battery or if it's located somewhere else.
  3. Turn your phone over and remove the back plate by pushing down on the slide panel and sliding it away from you. Remove the plate and then put your finger in between the battery and the side wall. Push the battery away and pull it out of the phone.
  4. See if the SIM card has a metal covering. Remove the covering if there is one present and then pull the SIM card out.
  5. Place the new SIM card in the card holder and then snap back down the metal covering. Make sure to place the card in the same direction as the old card or your phone will not be able to read it. Put the battery back in and then place the back panel back on. Power on your phone to ensure that the SIM is working properly.

WARNING
Do not enter in any codes if the phone asks for a "PUK" or "SIM lock" code. Contact your cellular provider immediately and request the code because if you enter in an incorrect code, your SIM card will permanently deactivate itself.

SOURCE: need puk code for locked LG KE850prada phone

Hi,

If you need the PUK ( Personal Unblocking Key ) for your phone, you will have to contact your mobile phone service provider.

PUK code is related to the SIM card you are using. So, kindly call the Customer support of your mobile service provider and they will provide you with the PUK code.

Also, entering a wrong PUK code ten times in a row disables the SIM card permanently. So, please be careful while entering the PUK code.

Hope this solves your problem. Thanks for using FixYa.

My boyfriend locked my Sim card when we broke up, is there anyway to unlock it without his code?? Please help!! Its a Verizon prepaid account


If its a SIM card block and the account is in your name, you can just phone up your mobile phone network and ask them to unlock it/ provide you with a PUK code for it.

I dont know my puk code


PUK stands for Personal Unblocking Key. This is a uniqueeight-digit code specific to your SIM card. This is required when the PINnumber to unlock your mobile phone is entered incorrectly 3 times. You are thengiven 10 attempts to enter your PUK code. If an incorrect PUK code is enteredafter the 10th attempt, you will block your SIM card permanently and willrequire 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 themyour account details and they have confirmed your identity.For details to obtain the PUK code for the SIM card, pleaseclick on this link and follow my instructions.

Unfortunately, you have not provided the name of your carrier. However, the procedure is almost the same for all service providers with some minor variations. All carriers have a master passwords that will allow you to change a forgotten password. However, they are first going to make certain that the phone is not stolen before dealing with you.

Use the following steps:

• Go online with your carrier, e.g., AT&T, Verizon, etc.
• Click on My Account
• Click on Support
• If it is available, click on 'Forgot My Password'. If not available, Insert the following wording: 'I forgot my password' and click on 'Enter'.
• You will then be asked for your telephone number, your name, Social Security Number, billing address, etc.
• You will then be provided with a temporary password.

You can also handle the above by telephone. Just call Customer Service or use the company's live or virtual chat service and they'll take you through the same procedure.

You didn't specify the following consideration but I'll send it along just in case that I've misunderstood your question:
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 carrier. For example, if you have AT&T to unlock your SIM card, you can obtain your phone's PUK code from AT&T by:

? logging in to your my wireless Account online
? using their Technical Support Chat
? calling Customer Care at 1-800-331-0500

To get your phone's PUK code online from ATT:

? Log in to your my wireless Account.
? Select My Services under My Account.
? From the My Services screen, select My Phone/Device.
? Select Unblock SIM Card.
? The Unblock SIM screen will display your PUK code.

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 ATT 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."

Sorry that I cannot be carrier specific but I trust that this is helpful and solves your problem. All the best

My w fone sim blocked its needs puk code my cell number is 03365


PUKs, or personal unblocking keys, are used to unblock a mobile phone which becomes blocked. Mobile phones may become blocked when a PIN (personal identification number) is entered incorrectly on three consecutive occasions. In some instances, the phone may become blocked, which requires a PUK to unblock it, and in other instances, the SIM (Subscriber Identity Module) card itself becomes blocked and again will require a PUK to unblock it. Mobile phones are also blocked when they are reported stolen and if there is an outstanding payment on the account. It is important to differentiate between unblocking phones (using a PUK) and unlocking mobile phones (using another type of code). NOTE: It is a criminal offence for anyone to attempt to unblock a mobile phone, other than the network provider who put the block on the phone. If your phone has become blocked by mistake, for example you have entered the PIN incorrectly on three consecutive occasions, then you need to contact the mobile phone network operator with your details. To explain a little more, specific to your mobile phone network, You need to go to your Service providers, web site & navigate your way to the specific PUK details for your mobile phone network operator. Usually you have to Register your phone to get a PUK code.

Sim is blocked for tmobile motorola razor have ime number


Has your IMEI been blacklisted because it was reported stolen by you?
If not ~
There are a number of other different ways your phone can become blocked as well. Here's what to do.
Have you entered the wrong PIN code several times?Your SIM card will block itself and ask for your PUK code. You can find your PUK code in your SIM card wallet.
Don't have your SIM card wallet? If you've already signed up for MyT-Mobile, you can easily access your PUK code online. Here's how.
Step 1) Sign up or log in to My T-Mobile
Step 2) Select Phone
Step 3) (If there's more than one mobile on youraccount, click on the mobile number you wish to find out the PUK for -if there's only one mobile on your account, go straight to step 4)
Step 4) Select Unblock SIM
Step 5) Click beside If your PIN code is locked
Step 6) Your PUK code will display. Enter this into your phone to unblock your SIM
Tip: If you enter the wrong PIN 10 or more times,this will LOCK your SIM card and you will need to replace it. To ordera replacement SIM card call T mobile at cb_transparent_l.gifgb.gifspace.gifspace.gifarrow.gifspace.gifspace.gifspace.gifspace.gifspace.gifspace.gifspace.gif0845 412 5000cb_transparent_r.gif (Charged at local toll rates) or if you have access to another T-Mobile phone, simply dial 150.

Need PUK Code for T-Mobile Motorola V600


hi
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.
