  • What's The PUK?
PUKs, or personal unblocking keys, are used to unblock a mobile phone which becomes blocked. Mobile phones may become blocked when a PIN (personal identification number) is entered incorrectly on three consecutive occasions.

In some instances, the phone may become blocked, which requires a PUK to unblock it, and in other instances, the SIM (Subscriber Identity Module) card itself becomes blocked and again will require a PUK to unblock it.

Mobile phones are also blocked when they are reported stolen or if there is an outstanding payment on the account.

  • Stop pressing buttons
The PUK number is not the same as any other number you might have - such as your PAC code, serial number or NUC (Network unlocking code). The PUK code is usually held by the cell phone operator, and standard advice is to contact them - and only them - to get the phone unblocked. Tracfone's Customer Service department is available on 1-800-867-7183.

  • The route less obvious

However, given some of the circumstances in which phones can become blocked, an online market has grown up for organizations or groups that claim to be able to help users with PUK problems.

While none of these should be your first port of call in the event of a legitimate PUK problem, if you are unable or unwilling to try Tracfone Customer Service for some reason, you could try a website like www.fixya.com/tags/tracfone_puk_code for assistance.

Go to www.tracfone.com on the bottom of the home page is a weblink for tech support.  Click on it and enter your phone's serial number.  When you select "problem with puk number" the web page gives you the puk code for your phone as well as a guide to enter a new pin.  The only time you would need to crack the phone's puk would be if you stole it, and who would steal a tracfone?  Its like stealing a half eaten sandwich.

Lg300 codes are 3294416 but there is no OK button on that LG brand so it won't work on that one but all others might work

You can call the local communication corporation and get the PUK code to open your phone.and I did that before.

I worked at tracfone and most of the time the only solution is sending a new simcard

This is a terrible answer. I just found my puk on tracfone.com and fixed my phone in 2 minutes. You probably no longer work for tracfone because your answer was always "most of the time the only solution is sending a new sim card" A new sim card in the mail? Wow, your solution is the best answer???? Mine take 2 minutes. Stop giving advice, you're bad at it.
