1. Getting started

How PINs protect your mobile phone and how to make phone calls. 1.1 Entering your PIN PIN stands for Personal Identification Number. PIN 1 protects your mobile phone against unauthorised use. PIN 2 is used to switch individual functions on or off. Both numbers were supplied together with your SIM card. Whenever you switch on your mobile phone, you must first enter PIN 1 correctly. Only then can you use it to make phone calls. Important If you enter the PIN code incorrectly three times consecutively, the SIM card is blocked automatically. 1.2 Unblocking your SIM card You can use the PUK (Personal Unblocking Key) to unblock the SIM card and reset your PIN code. The PUK code was also supplied with your SIM card and PIN code. Unblocking/resetting PIN 1

**05* PUK 1 * new PIN 1 * new PIN 1 # Call key

Unblocking/resetting PIN 2

**052* PUK 2 * new PIN 2 * new PIN 2 # Call key

(You can also enter your old PIN code as "new PIN".) English 5 Important Please consult the user guide for your mobile phone for information about special PIN functions. 1.3 Changing PIN codes Change your PIN 1 and PIN 2 when you use your mobile phone for the first time. Choose numbers that are easy for you to remember but not for others to guess. Change your PIN codes regularly. To change PIN 1

**04* old PIN 1 * new PIN 1 * new PIN 1 # Call key

To change PIN 2

**042* old PIN 2 * new PIN 2 * new PIN 2 # Call key

Tip Keep your PIN and PUK codes in a safe place separate from your SIM card and do not disclose them to third parties.
