How to Get Your PUK Code

A PUK or 'Personal Unlocking Key' is a security feature on most mobile devices that protects your SIM card data. The PUK code is unique to your SIM card and is required when a SIM Card PIN code has been entered incorrectly multiple times.

Unlocking a SIM card with a PUK differs from Network Unlocking which allows a mobile device to be used with other mobile networks. If your IMEI number and device has been blocked due to a lost/stolen scenario please see this article instead for details.
