The International Mobile Equipment Identity or IMEI is an address for your device so that it can be uniquely identified. The PUK or Pin Unlock Key is used to unlock a locked SIM card.

No a puk( pin unlock code)code is a lock that cell providers use on sim cards. an imei ( International Mobile Equipment Identity) number is more of a social security number that associates your phone to the network your on.

PUK number is the one you need to enter when you have entered the PIN number incorrectly too many times. IMEI number is the unique phone number used by service providers to identify your phone on the network.

Puk problem


Hi,

The easiest way to get the PUK code is to call your service provider, such as T-Mobile or Verizon. They need to verify your cell phone number and your IMEI number and they will provide you with the PUK code.

Hope this helps,
