What is a puk lock on a cell phone?

The PUK - is the Phone Unlock Key. It's not normally supplied with the phone itself. When you switch on your phone, If you enter the security PIN (usually 4 to 6 digits) wrongly too many times, the handset locks itself to prevent unauthorized use. You need to contact your service provider to get them to provide you with the PUK. Once you have it - keep it in a SAFE place SEPARATE from your mobile (NEVER store it in the memory !) - If you ever lock your phone by entering the wrong PIN, you can use the PUK to release the handset - and set a new PIN.

You will have to contact AT&T and explain to the operator that you need the PUK code for your phone. S/he will ask you what type of phone you own and the IMEI number for your phone. (The IMEI number can be found under the battery in your phone.) The operator will then give you the PUK code. Make sure you record the PUK code somewhere because you will have to enter it into your phone any time your phone is powered off from now on.

Your phone says contact service provider after trying to unlock a password?

In my experience (Unlocking a T-mobile Razr to use with a Cingular Sim). All you have to do is simply wait or 15 minutes to 2 hours for the phone to switch back to the screen that says "Insert Subsidy password" and then you can use your password and unlock the phone. Apparently though if you keep entering wrong codes into your phone you end up needing a PUK password and you are then forever locked out of your phone.
