To ensure a smooth activation, get familiar with these SIM card tips:Every SIM card comes with a PIN code to ensure your information is secure. The Personal Identification Number (PIN) code is set at the time the card is programmed.
You can choose to activate your PIN code at any time, and when it's activated, you'll be prompted to enter it every time you turn on your phone.
If your PIN code is active and you enter it incorrectly three times, your SIM card will be blocked. You won't be able to use your phone, except for emergency calls. You can unblock your SIM card using a master security code called a PIN unblocking key (PUK). Learn how to unblock your SIM card using a PUK.
