Access codes

Your phone and SIM card use different codes for security.

  • PIN or PIN2 codes: These codes protect your SIM card against unauthorized use. If you forget the codes or they aren't supplied with your card, contact your network service provider. If you type in the code incorrectly 3 times in a row, you need to unblock the code with the PUK or PUK2 code.
  • PUK or PUK2 codes: These codes are required to unblock a PIN or PIN2 code. If the codes are not supplied with your SIM card, contact your network service provider.
  • Screen lock: The screen lock helps you protect your phone against unauthorized use. You can set your phone to ask for the screen lock code that you define. Keep the code secret and in a safe place, separate from your phone. If you forget the code and your phone is locked, your phone will require service. Additional charges may apply, and all the personal data on your phone may be deleted. For more info, contact the nearest care point for your phone, or your phone dealer.
  • IMEI code: The IMEI code is used to identify phones in the network. You may also need to give the number to your care point services or phone dealer. To view your IMEI number, dial *#06#. Your phone’s IMEI code is also printed on your phone label, which is located under the battery. The IMEI is also visible on the original sales box.
