How do I personalize my PIN?
Your 4-digit PIN (Personal Identification Number) protects you from unauthorized access to your SIM card. However, your SIM card PIN code is not activated by default. To activate a PIN code on your SIM card, enter the default code 1234 — it will allow you to edit this code and customize it. This PIN code is written on the card that accompanies your new SIM card.
The default PIN code is 1234
Once your SIM card has been activated with a personalized PIN code, you will need to enter your PIN every time you turn on your phone. Without this your SIM card will not work and you will be unable to access the Fizz network.
IMPORTANT! If you type 3 incorrect PIN codes in a row, your SIM card will be blocked. To avoid this situation, we advise you to personalize your PIN using a number you will remember. How to unblock your SIM with a PUK code
