    Thanks Mr Mo, I always wanted to know how to do it.

  3. The default PIN of 0000 only applies to fresh lines. For most recycled lines…lines abandoned and reissued you’ll most likely have to call customer care on 180 for them to reset your pin from their end as the pin of the previous owner still stays.

  4. tried this and it didnt work for me so i called the customer care and what they told me to use ‘*601*0000*code*code#’ to change my pin. thanks…
