You have a new Samsung smartphone with a new SIM—and you just can't remember the PIN? No problem, just change it to a code that you can remember. You only need to follow a few steps, which NextPit will tell you in this article.

There are many reasons why we buy new SIM cards: We had to change our contract, we want to separate business and private contacts or we lost a SIM card, just to name a few reasons. With a new SIM, you always have to enter a new PIN (Personal Identification Number).

If you don't want to or can't get used to the new number, you can easily replace it with a PIN of your choice. We will now explain how to do this on your Samsung phone:

I started blogging in 2008 and have written for Mobilegeeks, Stadt Bremerhaven, Basic Thinking and Dr. Windows. I've been at NextPit since 2021, where I also discovered my passion for podcasts. I have been particularly interested in Android phones for many years now, and would like to get involved with the highly exciting smart home market. LEt's see, did I miss anything else? Oh yes, I love Depeche Mode and suffer with Schalke 04.
