Default What to do if I forget my SIM pin code

Please Login to Remove!

I have no clue what my SIM Pin code is and want to change it. Right now when I go to options/advanced/sim card and try to enable security it says "enter PIN Code (3 left)" When I go to ATT site, there is a PUK Code available to me but I don't see anywhere that it prompts me for a PUK code. Do I have to do 3 more invalid attempts to lock my sim and then enter the PUK code to unlock? Does this wipe anything on the SIM or the device? My understanding is that if I mess up on the PUK code (Not the Sim PIN) after 10 attempts the SIM is toast. So do I just lock up the SIM and then reset with PUK code? Thanks!

Answered: Enter in PIN 3 times, then says Enter PUK. Entered PUK and all set

Contact Singular and they will (should) be happy to give you clear instructions. If it can't be done on the BB, all you need to do is find a friend that uses a Cingular phone, put your SIM in their handset, and follow Cingular's instructions. I had a similar issue with my T-Mobile card a couple of years ago and they were very clear and helpful --

Cingular's default PIN should be 1234.
