How to get my PUK code on my Movistar sim?

Postby Lion » Sun Feb 19, 2006 11:35 am

Hi All,

I am borrowing my wifes mobile phone for the journey to Bilbao incase I have any problems along the way, anyway this morning after charging it up I messed up the pin code and now it's asking for a PUK code, where will I find this, any ideas?

BTW - I just phoned my wife up (who is now back in UK) and she hasn't a clue what the PUK code is.

Can Movistar give me this if I can provide NIE numbers, address etc?

The PUK code is provided in the original documentation when the phone is purchased. Mine is on a scratch off panel in the leaflet. If you are not at home to trace this I suggest contacting the service provider.

Thanks for the replies, anyone have a phone number for Wanadoo that I can dial from a landline?

The numbers are for calling from Spain.

Excellent, many thanks Hillbilly, I phoned the number and it only took a minute and I have my phone working again now :)

That's a relief, although it makes a bit of a mockery of it all to be honest as I didn't have to give my name, nie or any details to get a new PUK number given to me so could have stolen the phone as far as they knew.

I think that there really isn't a lot of point in putting in a Pin Lock. If the phone is stolen they just sling your sim card and put another in. Unless you have a massive amount of credit they won't be stealing too much from you in that respect if they call anyone on your phone. the only people who are troubled by the pin number are the owners when they forget it.
