Default Pin & Security Codes for SIM cards

A number of networks still use a default pin on their SIM cards at the point of dispatch as a security precaution. If you lose or forget the PIN code it can be irritating.

Please note these PIN's will only work if you have NOT changed the default PIN. If you enter the PIN code incorrectly three times, a lock will be put onto the SIM card, and you need a PUK code to unlock it.

You can obtain your PUK by contacting your network service provider.

Default Network PIN Codes:

O2 = 0000/4321

Orange = 1111

Vodafone = 0000

Fresh = 1210

Virgin Mobile = 7890 / 1210

Vodafone = 0000

Talkmobile = 0000

3 = 0000

When i insert a virgin sim card in a virgin network phone it does not work!

Thanks for visiting FixYa!

Virgin Mobile uses proprietary software in it's phones. As such, (depending on the phone) a SIM card already activated for one Virgin Mobile phone may not work in another (different) Virgin Mobile phone - even if it is the exact make and model.

You may need to contact Virgin Mobile Customer service to request a new phone added to your account - and they may need to provide you with a new SIM card. They'll be able to let you know what you'll need to do depending on which phone you want to use on your account.

Need samsung g600 unlocking code

I have just tried it with my new locked to orange g600 and it works fine on all networks.

1-Turn on the phone without sim card .
2-Pull off the battery cover and insert any non-accepted sim card (without turning off the handset)
3-Do full reset *2767*3855# , phone will reboot and goes to Menu .
4-Customize Sp-lock code *7465625*638*00000000*00000000#
5-Unlock your phone with new SP code #7465625*638*00000000#
6-Enjoy G600 unlocked

if it doesn't work after step 3.. try changing the 'non-accepted' sim card that ur putting in..
eg if you are locked to vodafone and you try this method and use an orange sim card and it doesn't work, try using a o2 sim or even virgin :)
its easy good luck

O2 SIM card won't work in a Virgin mobile

This is because you can't put an other network sim card in a different network phone.
Example: Vodafone SIM + T-Mobile Phone = Wont work.                Vodafone SIM + Vodafone Phone = Work.
