If you enter a wrong PIN multiple times, your SIM card will be locked and you need to enter the PUK code to unlock it.
The PUK code is a personal eight-digit code that unlocks your SIM card. However, you cannot change this code, as is the case with the PIN.
To enter the PUK code you have up to ten attempts. If you have not entered the correct PUK code correctly, your SIM card will be permanently blocked.
If you entered the PUK code correctly, you will be prompted to set a new PIN.
Attention: If you do not have your PUK code to hand, for example because you cannot find the additional letter of the SIM card, contact the customer service of your mobile operator.
