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:
