There are certain security reasons why your SIM card could be blocked by your network provider and they include, entering of wrong PIN code multiple times, or you fake/guess a recharge card PIN repeatedly etc. These and other unstated reasons would make network providers block your SIM card and can only be unlocked via a PUK code.
