How to get a PUK code

The quickest way to get a PUK code is to log in to My EE:

  1. 1

    Go to Menu >Manage device

  2. 2

    scroll down to Unblock SIM (PUK code)

  3. 3

    select Show PUK code

Once you have your PUK code, enter this into your phone to unblock your SIM.

Please take care when you enter your PUK code into your phone – you'll block your SIM card again if you enter the wrong PUK code ten times in a row.
