What can I do to get my PUK code?
Your PUK code is your Personal Unblocking Key and will allow you to reset the amount of times you can enter an unlock code or SIM network unlock PIN. There are a number of ways you can get your PUK code.
You will get a request from the handset for a PUK code if you have been entering the wrong unlock code too many times.
3 ways to get your PUK code.
1. Go to the network.
If you are on a contract you can apply to the network and request your PUK code from them. You will need to sign into your account and complete a form either online or via the app. Below are some links to get you started.
2. Third party supplier.
For Samsung handsets you can purchase a DEFREEZE or UNFREEZE code that will bypass the PUK screen on your handset. For all other handsets you will need to go to your network.
3. Check the SIM card packaging
Sometimes the PUK code is supplied along with the SIM card. You can check all the packaging and it may appear on a label of some kind.
