You cant change PIN. You will just have to block them.

the phone was bought from the carrier, brand new.
it is a friends phone... he said he did not post his pin anywhere.
I now solved it using the firewall settings, but is too weird.

The problem with the firewall setting is that you may unknowingly block others who you would like to "accept."
