    I recently was fooling around in the security settings with my phone.

    Most of the codes for the passwords were either "0000" or "000000" or "1234". So that was no problem, I was able to look around without much trouble.

    That was untill I came to the password called SIM PIN2.

    Now, when I try to change the SIM PIN2 password, i just get the message "SIM Blocked" and the only option is "BACK".
    Also, when I try to change "Fixed Dial", I get that same "SIM Blocked" error message.

    I was teetering on the edge of doing a "Master Reset".... but thought I'd ask you guys first....

    How the hell do I unblock this?

    Thanks in advance....

    if your sim is blocked then you need to get a new sim card. you must ahve entered the a security or lock code in too many times wrong.

    Did you try calling your service provider? Maybe they can tell you how to fix it without reseting it.
