PUK

What is a PUK? PUK stands for Personal Unblocking Key, and it's a code that's associated with a mobile phone SIM card.

Why am I being asked for a PUK? Your mobile phone's SIM Card has a four-digit PIN code enabled by default. If you enter the PIN code incorrectly three times, a lock will be put onto the SIM card, and you need a PUK code to unlock it.

Where do I get a PUK? If you're being asked to enter a PUK, you will need to contact your network operator to get your SIM Card unlocked. This is for security reasons. Note that only your mobile phone network operator can legally provide you with a PUK code to unlock your SIM card.

Hi,

I'm sometimes accused of not giving short answers. However, my philosophy is that too much is better than too little.

Still with me?

This is generic because I don't know the name of your carrier. I'll be using AT&T as an example. Most carriers use the same procedure but the wording may differ.

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."

I trust that this is helpful and solves your problem. All the best

Ben

Hello and Welcome to FixYa!
PIN and PUK codes are all service provider (Your SIM / Your Connection) dependent, you can never get it from anywhere else, never get fooled and pay for it to anyone.
All you have to do is to call your service providers via some other phone or landline and talk to a CSR, ask him for the code. He will first authenticate your ownership and will give you your code in ruturn, for free, Its your right to know your PIN/PUK.
I hope you have a clear picture now.
Concerned, Nooh.

Hi i wwas trying to put a security code to my nokia 2610 but now is block and is asking me for a puk code could you please helpe with that?

You enter the PUK code, when the SIM has been locked by too many attempts at entering the PIN code for the SIM.

When the PUK code is needed, the phone will specifically ask you to enter it. If you want to trigger the PUK code request, enter the PIN code for the SIM card incorrectly a few times. There is no key press codes to trigger the PUK code prompt.

Each PUK code is specific to each SIM card, and has nothing to do with the phone itself.

And the PUK code is also not related to the phone security/lock code (the default for the security/lock code on the phone is 12345 on Nokia phones).

I need puk code for nokia 6110navigator IMEI354847/01/445453/8


the PUK code is for your simcard. If you have a GSM mobiile nokia, you can contact your mobile carrier and they'll provide you with the PUK code.
as per Nokia.com*

The PUKcode is an 8-digit code from your Service Provider used to change a disabled Personal Identification Number (PIN) code.

*Nokia did not give me this info personally.

Again, as stated, the PUK code is SIM card related. Not phone related.
