If you enter a PIN code incorrectly several times in a row, the device blocks you from attempting again. To enter a PUK code and unblock the PIN, follow these steps:

 

Important: You must call Customer Care for the PUK code. Entering the wrong code can permanently damage your SIM card.

 

  1. Contact Customer Care to request your PUK code.
  2. Enter the following character string, slowly, pausing between each entry: **05*[PUK]*[NewPIN]*[New PIN again]#
    Note: If you do not pause between the symbols you enter, it will change the entry. This makes the PUK fail.
