In today’s article we going to educate you on how to get the PUK code to unblock your MTN sim card, you might have misplaced your sim pack and have no idea how to get the PUK code to unblock it but today your problem is solved.
If you have a SIM card PIN that allows the phone to access SIM card data, but you enter it incorrectly this time, the SIM card may block you from further attempts.
You can reset the SIM card using the so-called personal unblocking code or PUK code, which you normally receive from your operator.
If you enter the wrong SIM card PIN several times, the SIM card will be blocked as an additional precaution. This prevents anyone from simply guessing every possible PIN to gain access to your data when setting up your phone or SIM card.
Get the PUK code from the SIM card packaging
When you receive the SIM card from the market, it comes in a small package and the PUK code should be included. If you still have the package, find the plastic card where the SIM was removed.
The 8-digit PUK code must be printed on the back together with the SIM card PIN code, this is another way of getting your PUK code to unblock your sim card.
How to retrieve your PUK to unblock MTN Sim card:
In case you have misplaced the sim package that comes with the sim card all you have to do is to then dial the various MTN Customer Care lines depending on your preference:
- Dial 180, if you are calling directly from an MTN number.
- Dial 08031000180, if you are calling from another network within Nigeria.
- Dial +2348031000180, if you are calling from outside Nigeria. The addition of +234 (Nigeria’s dialing code) is important if you are calling from outside Nigeria.
Then simply answer the customer care representative’s answers to the questions that were asked to make sure you are the rightful owner of the locked MTN SIM card.
