Default enabling security for sim card?

Please Login to Remove!

Since I have this new BlackBerry this seems a trivial question but it is important to me because I would like to lock my sim with my own pin. I found in options/advanced options/sim card - enable security (3 attempts). Nobody seems to know with certainty if there is a default number to set your own pin for sim lock. It might be 0000 for my O2 Pay&Go but can I chance it?

From help app on the device:

About SIM security--

Quote:
You can protect your SIM card with a PIN code to add another level of security to your BlackBerry® device. If you lock your SIM card with a PIN code, other people cannot use their SIM card in your device. Before you can use your SIM card in another device, you must type the PIN code.

Protect your SIM card with a PIN code--

Quote:
To obtain your SIM card PIN code, contact your wireless service provider.

Note: If you type the SIM card PIN code incorrectly three times, your SIM card does not function.

On the Home screen or in a folder, click the Options icon.

Click Advanced Options.

Click SIM Card.

Press the Menu key.

Click Enable Security.

Type your SIM card PIN code.

Press the Enter key

Sorted!:o) Bravely (but with shaking hand) I punched 0000 as my last attempt and it worked
