Default SIM Pin setting

Please Login to Remove!

I'm a new BB user (8830) and I love it; I have owned smartphones
since day 1 and this device is the best SmartPhone I've ever owned
hands down..

A question please..I keep sensitive info on my BB; I would like to set a PIN on
the SIM card in this phone but do not know how to do so;
The dilemma: 1) manual with the phone tells me that the SIM is used for
GSM calls abroad IMPLYING no contact or other sensitive info gets written there 2)SPRINT support has told me a) 8830 does NOT have a SIM card
and on another occasion b)that sensitive info IS written to the SIM...but
could not provide me with a PIN

Soooooo..the enclosed docs with the phone instruct me to get the SIM
from customer service but they do not know where this number is or in one case that the BB has NO SIM...

Has anyone out there LOCKED their SIM card on their 8830? And if so,
how? Does the 8830 SIM hold sensitive info or not? If not, then contact info & the like is held in flash memory? What keeps info around if power
to BB goes out for an extended time in this scenario?

Thanks in advance..
