Alright, good job!
I'd really appreciate it if you will follow my instructions

  1. Open the Settings app
  2. Tap Biometrics and security. Or it should be called just
  3. Tap Other security settings
  4. Tap Set up SIM card lock
    There should be a button to remove a block from a SIM Card
    Should look like that.
  5. Enter your SIM card PIN, then tap OK. The default PIN number will depend on your network provider. You can also find your SIM card’s PIN number on the original packaging it came in.

I’m really sorry that you have to deal with it and I would be so happy to help you but, to my regret, there is no way to resolve your issues without contacting ID Mobile directly to get your PUK code. You will need just click on this link: www.idmobile.co.uk
They will tell you your PUK code to get this SIM Card worked on the Samsung Galaxy S6
If you have any other questions, I'll be happy to help you out!
