If you have entered the wrong PIN code multiple times on your SIM card, it will eventually become locked and require a Personal Unblocking Key (PUK) code to unlock it. If you are experiencing an incorrect PUK code issue on your SIM card, here are the steps to follow:
- Obtain your PUK code: The PUK code is usually provided in the SIM card package or can be obtained by contacting your previous carrier for assistance or a Tech Support Specialist.
- Enter the PUK code: When the SIM card is locked, your phone will prompt you to enter the PUK code. Enter the code carefully and accurately.
- Set a new PIN code: After entering the PUK code, you will be prompted to set a new PIN code. Choose a unique, easy-to-remember code and enter it.
- Confirm the new PIN code: You will then be asked to confirm your new PIN code. Enter it again to confirm.
- Test the new PIN code: Once the new PIN code has been confirmed, test it to ensure it works and your SIM card is no longer locked.
If you do not have your PUK code, do not try to guess it, as entering the wrong code multiple times can permanently damage your SIM card. Contact your previous carrier or a tech support specialist for assistance in obtaining your PUK code.
