What’s the difference between a PUK and PAC?

Is a PUK and PAC the same thing?

PUK - Personal Unblocking Key - if you type your security code into your phone wrongly a few times you will lock yourself out of it. You will need to get a PUK code from your provider or online service you previously registered. This will enable you to unlock your phone.

PAC - Porting Authorisation Code - If you want to go with another carrier and take your number with you , you request a PAC code from the existing provider and supply it to the new provider. The number transfer can then take place and your old account will likely be terminated shortly after.

Hope this helps

PUK (Phone Unlock Code) is needed when SIM/Phone is blocked by provider.
PAC (Authorization Code) is needed when you want to move your number from one provider to another.
