- What's The PUK?
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.

- 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.
