Re: PUK Code

To my knowledge you have to get the puk code from your carrier. DO NOT TRY TO GUESS IT. Some time ago when I had a motorola flip phone I incorrectly entered the wrong password too many times. I was then prompted to enter the puk code, thinking it was something I was supposed to know, I kept entering passwords that I commonly use. Finally the phone said "SIM Locked". I called at&t and asked them how to fix it. They said there was no way to fix it once I locked it and that I had to buy a new SIM from them. They told me I was supposed to call them to get the puk code when it appeared. Well how was I supposed to know that?

Re: PUK Code

lorriem1222 is right! PUK is the property of your SIM card. If you enter wrong SIM PIN no. 3 times then you'll be asked to enter PUK code and if you enter wrong PUK code 10 times then your SIM will be dead forever!!!


Usually PUK is written in the intial SIM card package by your carrier. They also have a log for PUK codes but often carrier don't let people know about PUK code. Rather they induce subscribers to get a new SIM card with same mobile number.

No one here can provide that...please scroll up and read the other posts. You must contact the provider (to you) of the SIM card to obtain the PUK code.


Good luck!
