Introduction:

The SIM PIN LOCK function is used to prevent fraud use by locking the modem via SIM lock, modem/SIM will be locked if this function is enabled, and IAP will unlock the modem during power-on by executing the related unlock command. Before we can not modify this PIN but in 4.2 it will be modifiable.
 



Solution:

  • PIN and PUK CODE are provide by ISP, please ensure them before we try to setup this function.
  • PIN lock/unlock only support from CLI to setup, and only can setup with modem is manual configuration status.
