How to unlock puk code on tracfone

Forget PUK - you can do that

If you enter your PIN incorrectly three times, you will need your PUK. We'll show you what to do if you forget this unlock code too.

Forget PUK - what you can do now

If you have entered your PIN incorrectly too often and do not have your PUK to hand immediately, this is not a major problem. In any case, the PUK can be determined so that you do not need a new SIM card.

  • You received the PUK with the SIM card and the PIN in the mail. In contrast to the PIN, the PUK cannot be changed. After 10 unsuccessful attempts, the card will be permanently blocked.
  • In the best case scenario, you can still find the letter from your mobile operator in your documents. If the letter can no longer be found, that's only half as bad.
  • With many providers, such as Lidl, you can view the PUK online. Alternatively, a call to customer service is sufficient. The hotlines are always free of charge and choose the PUK for you after you identify yourself.
