    That's what the PUK code is for. If you've got the PUK you can reset
    the PIN on the SIM.

    Hi Homer,

    Yes, have a look in your phones manual.

    Generally after the simcard pin has been incorrectly entered 3 times the sim
    is locked, then you have 10 attempts to enter the PUK code.

    Thanks,

    .... Just enter some random number when it asks for the PIN code three times,
    then enter the PUK when asked.
    You should then be asked to enter a new PIN code.
