Entered the wrong SIM Pin Code several times? Locked your SIM? You might need your Ufone PUK code to unlock your SIM. Here’s how you can obtain your PUK code.
A personal unblocking key (PUK) is a security feature that is available on various mobile phones. It helps to protect data saved in your SIM card. For every SIM card, this PUK code is unique. You are required to enter this number when you’ve incorrectly entered your SIM card Pin code for three times consecutively.
Every telecommunication company operating in the Pakistani industry has different solutions for their customers looking to unlock their SIM by using the PUK code. Ufone, being a leader in the telecommunications industry, offers easy and hassle-free ways to help their customers retrieve their PUK code and unlock their sim. Here are two ways that will help in how to unblock your Ufone number:
Run the USSD Code
From your Ufone mobile number, dial *336#. Then go to ‘My Profile’ and select ‘PUK code’. You will now be able to view your Ufone PUK code number. Enter the same code when prompted, and you will be able to unlock your SIM card.
However, there is one thing that you should keep in mind. This method will only work for SIM cards that are unlocked and active. In case your SIM has already been locked by the company, this method will not help. You will then have to try the second method to unlock your SIM.
Use the Helpline
Ufone call centres are extremely responsive and the agents offer instant support and solutions to your problems. Dial 333 and speak to one of the call centre representatives. They will require a few verifications from you before they proceed and unlock your SIM card. Cooperate with them and provide them with all the required information. After the verification process is completed successfully, the agent will provide you with either your Ufone SIM Pin or your Ufone SIM PUK code.
Apart from these two methods, there is no other way of obtaining a Ufone PUK code. A lot of people suggest using online softwares for obtaining a PUK code. However, this is not true. There is neither a Ufone PUK code trick nor an online software that can generate PUK codes. There are a lot of softwares in the market that claim to generate Ufone Sim PUK code for unlocking. Too many failed attempts for PUK code will result in permanent blocking of your SIM card. Thus, stay away from all such softwares, and do not fall for them as they provide no solution to your problem.
Moreover, if you’re using a smartphone, it is recommended that you use an app locking application instead of a PUK code for protecting data on your SIM. These applications are extremely effective, and are easily available on the App Store, as well as Google play store. Moreover, these apps are free of cost. This means you can protect your data and get security without any added cost.
