Sim Locked Message

I have an iPhone 7. I changed to a 4G plan and so I was sent a new sim, and so I changed my sims over and activated it, and now everytime i turn on my phone after it has been turned off it asks me to unlock the sim again. 

 

Any ideas to stop this happening ?

Many thanks

Hi hannahevickers,

 

from Google:

Go to Settings > Phone > SIM PIN > Turn it off or on.

Re: Sim Locked Message

Hey hannahevickers, 

 

The new 4G SIM cards have the pin number automatically active on there for security reasons, however @AlexKid is spot on, so if you follow his instruction you can manage this from your phone. 

 

Take care
