A PUK or 'Personal Unblocking Key' is a security feature on most mobile devices that protects your SIM card data. A PUK code is required when a SIM card PIN code has been entered incorrectly. Please note: Unblocking a SIM card with a PUK differs from 'Network Unlocking' which allows a handset to be used on other mobile networks. You can get your PUK code in two ways: On the Phone On the Internet Get your PUK code on the phone Dial 133 937 from an alternate phone Select option 2 - Technical Support / Service Difficulties Select option 1 - Mobile Enter your mobile number Select option 3 - Retrieve your PUK code Select option 1 - Retrieve your PUK code Enter your date of birth as directed Your PUK code will be read out to you Get your PUK code on the internet Login to My Account - Need to Register? In the left hand menu under 'Services'. Click either ‘Pre-Paid Mobile ', 'Post-Paid Mobile’ or 'Wireless'. (example 1 - below) Click ‘Unlock PUK’ (example 2 - below, is how the option appears under the Post-Paid Mobile menu, the same option is available in the 'Pre-Paid' and 'Wireless' menus)

PUK , "Personal Unblocking Key" If you enter your PIN code incorrectly 3 times it will block your phone, then you require your PUK to unblock it. .... then we need to talk with "Customer Care" ..........

. Once you’ve been told that you need a PUK code, it’s advised that you leavethe phone and seek the expertise of a customer service representative from the mobile phone network you’re with. This is because you only get 10 opportunities to guess the PUK code before the SIM card will become unusable on a permanent basis.Finding a PUK (Personal Unblocking Key) number is not tough job. To find a PUKcode all you have to do is call up on thecustomer carenumber and ask them to help you with the issue. Before they provide you the PUK code, they will ask you several questions. Youneed to give them the appropriate information. Customer care of your service provider are the only source from which can give you the PUK code.

In your mobile security setting there is a option pin code request to avoid misuses of your sim card.if u press 3 time wrong pin code your sim card will be blocked.than your sim card will ask for puk code. and you can get your puk code from service provider you must give him your address id proof and some required information.one more thing if you enter wrong puk code three or more time your sim card will be rejected permanently.so please be careful for it

Few people use PIN locking system to lock their phone to avoid un-authorised access. Though this is a good option, it pisses you off sometime. Three wrong entry of PIN code will result in SIM blocking. Once SIM gets blocked, phone starts asking PUK code to enter. If you again enter wrong code for three times, SIM gets completely blocked. You have to walk into your service provider outlet to get a replacement SIM card. PUK code is a SIM specific code assigned by your service provider. No way you can guess & enter it. So, when it asks for the PUK code, don’t do anything, get the PUK code from your service provider. Airtel has a easier way of getting PUK code. For getting PUK code of a Airtel number, send PUKPhoneNumber to toll free number 121. You can make use of any other Airtel number to send this message since your SIM might have been blocked already. If the above method doesn’t works or your service provider is not Airtel, call to customer care using any other mobile phone which uses the same service provider. They will ask some details about you to make sure you are the owner of the SIM card. Questions might include your billing address, email ID, numbers you recently called or messaged etc. They might even ask you the number printed on the SIM card, so be prepared with all details before calling them. Once you get the PUK code, enter it into the phone & your phone will return to normal.

As per my own information PUK code is a '8 digit unique code' which is required 2 enter when you have entered 3 times incorrect PIN no. nd ur sim is blocked temperary! To unblock the sim PUK code is must required. To get it simply u have to call ur respective cust.care officer and after sim enquiry they will provide u PUK no. Some of network has default puk code is 12345678. If u entered 10 times incorrect PUK no. then ur sim will be blocked permanently!

Personal unblocking code(PUK) or PIN is a sim related code .when you unlock sim using PIN and attempts to get it unlocked and keyin the wrong pin for3 times it asks for PUK code...normally it is mentioned on the package if the SIM you have purchased. Else you can visit or contact customer care to get the code..but it is a long procedure

The PUK code is a function of the sim card, not the phone. If you mean a network lock code, that's a different matter and the phone is network locked as it was subsidised by the network and they are protecting their interests.

Personal unblocking code(PUK). It is also known as PIN. It is a SIM-specific code assigned by the service provider. It is used in GSM mobile phones to unblock a blocked card. If the wrong PIN is typed in more than three times, either the SIM card, the device or both become locked.
