Most people using smartphones have no idea of PUK code. If your phone’s PIN Security function is enabled, you need to enter a PIN to unlock the SIM card each time you start your phone. In case you entered the wrong PIN code more than 3 times, your phone will be locked. It can only be unlocked using the PUK code.

PUK code or PIN UnlocK Code is a security code that is required if a GSM SIM card was locked after entering the wrong PIN code multiple times.
