Your question is misleading because you literally unlock a SIM-enabled phone, like those manufactured and distributed by Nokia, by entering the PUK code on the screen. PUK stands for PIN Unlock Key.
Now, if you are prompted to enter the PUK it is probably because your mobile device has a special security feature that protects the SIM card; or rather protects the personal information that is stored on the SIM card. When the security feature is active, you are required to enter the SIM PIN in order to use the device.
Much like the way entering the wrong password at your online banking interface might lock you out of the system, entering the wrong PIN on your SIM card will also lock you out. If this occurs you will need to obtain the PUK in order to use the phone. Sometimes, when you transfer the SIM card to another phone, you may also be prompted to enter the code.
You probably don’t have this code just lying around so you will have to contact your wireless service provider in order to get the phone. Most companies has a toll-free number and 24-hour customer care services so you should be able to do this at your convenience, which you can find either on their website or even on your bill. Call the number and verify your identity and they will give you the code. Then enter the code on the keypad or touch screen on your phone and you will unlock the SIM card.
Well there is no universal PUK code available which you punch in and get the phone unlocked. So do not try to punch in PUK codes which your are not sure of in an effort to unlock the phone, because putting the wrong PUK code, ten times in a row will permanently deactivate your SIM card.
So to unlock the Nokia PUK code, you will have to call the customer service helpline of the network provider, who will ask you for the registration number of your SIM card. Once you provide them with the SIM card registration number, the PUK code will be given to you. PUK code better known as the PUC or the personal unlocking code is a feature which is present in all GSM cell phones.

Contact your network provider
What ii did was put "password" as the puk code and than it says enter new pin code... Ii entered one and it said verify it.... When ii did that it said code error... So the best for you to do it contact the service provider...
I did this to my Nokia Nuron, but when I bought the phone it had a new sim in it, all I did was took the one that wasn't working out and popped the one that came in the box into the phone. Everything worked and I didn't need a code or anything. Oh, and all my numbers/music/pictures and so on were still on there :)
Call your service provider and ask the puk code
If its not activated and you still want to use it take out the sim card
You get the puk at the phone company.

Its the sim card that needs the PUK code. When I took out the sim card off my N95, it opened normally. So you really have to call the server provider or get a new sim card

I want to unlock my mobile 6275 nokia puk code plz help me
The PUK code does not unlock a mobile phone. The PUK code is requested when the SIM PIN has been entered incorrectly more than 3 times. You need to contact the SIM card issuer for the PUK (e.g. If it's an Orange SIM card you would contact Orange for the PUK) however, as stated previously, this will not unlock the phone.
Dip the end of your phone lightly < very lightly in a small cup of malt vinegar. However be careful to dip the side in with the three squares of metal. Otherwise all you would have done is put your phone in vinegar :) it works 9/10 times. Don't worry it can't damage your phone or battery in any way possible.
Ok, I got locked out of my boyfriends phone, I needed the PUK when I didn't even know the service provider. I was scared he was going to be angry with me so I searched and searched the internet for ways to unlock this phone! All I could find were blogs telling me to call the service provider, But again, this was not my phone so that was not an option. I decided that If I soaked the battery in water, then it would ruin the battery and he would never know that I was trying to get into his phone. We could just buy a new battery and fix it then. I filled a cup with water and let the battery sit completely under water for about 1 to 2 minutes. The end with the three small openings was at the bottom of the cup. I put the battery back in and it did not completely turn on, it only flashed. I put it down thinking that I had successfully destroyed the battery. I came back maybe 5 minutes later and it turned on!! Not only was it working, it was not asking me for the PUK, or for any pin!! So, I don't know why this worked and I am not sure if I recommend it, but it worked for me!! Good luck!!
Throw the battery in water for like a min then let it dry
