What is the exact message? The phone might still be locked to your previous provider. If it's a Samsung then they could provide you with a code.

@Krystalpearle 

 

When a PUK code is prompted it is usually because your phone is locked to your previous provider. Contact your previous provider and ask them to unlock your phone. Any phone built before 2017 is most likely locked to the provider it was used for.

 

You will need to provide them with your IME# do this by dialing *#06#

@z10user4 advice is if it Is a Samsung can be followed as well. 

 

Welcome to public mobile thanks for reaching out!
