Puk code is locked (Please contact customer service)

So, being the fool that I am, I was messing around with my security settings (Set up SIM card lock).

 

This happened:

For the PUK code, I used up all my tries to get it right. 

 

Does this mean that I have to get my SIM replaced or is there a way I can fix it by myself?

 

Help me out, guys, I'm totally lost.

Unfortunately, you do need a new SIM. The old one is toast, even CS can't do anything with it. They'll give you a new one most likely for free at any corporate store.

You can go to myATT. The puk can be found under unlock my device section. The puk can be sent to an active number in the account.

A PIN is a security code you choose yourself.

 

If you lock up your phone by entering incorrect PINs, your carrier can give you a Pin Unlock Key; a PUK is a number that only the carrier knows.

 

If you try to guess the PUK too many times, then your SIM self destructs and you need a new one.

 

So those of you suggesting the OP should get the PUK from AT&T - that is what he/she should have done, but it sounds like it is too late now.
