Question about Nokia 5000 Cellular Phone
What should I do if my iPhone says
A PUK code (Pin Unlock Key) is required when you enter an incorrect PIN 3 times. After entering the wrong PIN 3 times, the card will be locked and you will need to get a PUK code from your service provider to unlock it.
If you have AT&T ;
You can receive your phone's PUK code from AT&T, either by logging into your account at myWireless Account, visiting our Technical Support Chat, or by calling Customer Care at 1-800-331-0500.
Once your PUK has been received, it will need to be entered into your phone to set a new PIN code.
If the wrong PUK code is entered ten times in a row, the SIM card becomes invalid and you will need to purchase a new SIM Card. The phone will display "PUK blocked call operator".

Tips for a great answer:
PUK code is called as PERSONNAL UNBLOCKING KEY.
Your phone will ask for PUK code when you entered the PIN
code wrongly several times depending upon the mobile make. The mobile asks for
PUK code so that unauthorized persons do not use your mobile for wrong cause.
To get PUK code please contact your service provider
through phone or go directly to their office. They will provide you the PUK
code for your mobile. The PUK code is unique for each mobile phone model.so
that you can open your phone. When you planning to call your service provider
you cannot use your mobile as it is fully locked. Please use some other mobile
with same network to call your service provider.
code prevents thieves from being able to
make use of stolen handsets, that is why it can only be given by the service
While you get the PUK code ,the service provider
customer care officer will ask for your personal details to check whether the
mobile belongs to you only. If they are satisfied with your answers they will
provide with the PUK code
DONOT enter the PUK code several times wrongly,It will
block your sim card permanently.
This PUK code is FREE. You no need to pay any money to
get the PUK code
