How to find PUK code on micro sim

Answered

Hi,

 

My wife and I purchased 2 iPhone 5's and were given new micro sims as we are on a BYO plan. I want to be able to enable a sim lock code but there doesnt seem to be a default.

 

I have seen a post on this forum saying that it is the last 4 digits of the PUK code. How do i find that information on a micro sim as there doesnt seem to be anything obvious on the receipt from where we bought the phones.

 

Sorry forgot to mention they are telstra sims

 

Many thanks.'

So you want a SIM PIN. You can access this online via My Account, Over the phone (13 22 00 and say PUK) or via LiveChat

You can find your PUK code in My Account, or you can setup a PIN Code on the iPhone by going to Settings > General > Passcode Lock

  1. Do you want to prevent others from being able to use your SIM (i.e. Telstra Mobile service) to make calls, etc. even if it takes their removing the SIM physically from your handset and use it in theirs,
       or
  2. Do you want to prevent others from being able to use your iPhone handset?

 

A SIM PIN addresses the former, and a device passcode (which is a security feature provided in iOS) addresses the latter.

Thanks for the replies guys.

What i want to do is get the SIM to ask for an unlock code when the iPhone powers up preventing any use of the cell without entering the 4 digit code.

Set it & forget it

With direct debit there’s no need to give paying your bill another thought.

Avoid queuing up and never worry about late fees again.
