Even I enter 0000 or 1234 or 000000 , the phone always accept, and ask for "
Enter New SIM PIN ", I put in my 6 password number , then it askek "
Re-enter New SIM PIN " . I enter same my 6 number password again . .. It

If it is "SIM blocked" there is nothing you can do... The files taht make
SIM work, have been electronically destroyed... It is part of the security
setup...

The SIM is unusable... period... The only option is to get a new SIM...

Doesnt matter how many times you did it, or whetehr someone had tried
previously... It is cumulative, and you are SOL...

It can not be reset, reloaded, or restored...

Hello,

I worked for Fido customer service for many years, so here how this works :

First you have 2 different security settings: one for the SIM, and one for the PHONE.

The PIN # and PÜK # are associated with the SIM.
- When security for the SIM is abled, you use a PIN code to unlock your phone.
- If you enter the wrong PIN code more than 3 times, it will ask you for a PUK number.
- The ONLY way to get the PUK # is call customer service (NOT a Fido store), who will give you the PUK# associated with the SIM you are using (if they know their job ...).

The security code is associated with the PHONE/ HANDSET.
- If security for the PHONE/ HANDSET is not abled, DON'T ENABLE IT. It's not worth the hassle.
- To unlock the security code for a phone, you need to have the phone model security code. I THINK Nokias work with 0000, other models like Sony Ericsson with 1234, if my memory serves me right, but make sure you get the right model code by checking with customer service, or a Fido store.
- If you changed the phone security code in your settings PRIOR to your problem, then it means that the phone model security code won't work. At this point, the ONLY thing you can do to unlock your PHONE/ HANDSET is to go to a Fido Flagship and see a technician who should be able to unlock your phone.

Note: The only thing that enabling the phone security will do, is prevent someone (thief, buyer) to use the phone with another SIM. If your SIM is locked and your PHONE unlocked, the new user, buyer or thief with be able to use the phone, ONLY by using their own SIM, or activate a new SIM.
So if your SIM is locked, that's what is important to you, because it's the SIM that is associated with your phone#, your account, your line and personal infos = your BILL!

So as far as the PHONE/ HANDSET security goes, I'd suggest to just ... "Don't touch that dial!!"

Hope it helps,
Chan

Hello,
if my SIM is blocked after my phone was lost, does this mean that no-one can access contacts, SMS etc I had saved on it?

Hi friends, :pt1cable: 
I would like to suggest something regarding lost SIM blocked. If your SIM is blocked after your phone is lost then no one can access your contacts or SMS.

Thanks
