Changing SIM - impact on Mobile Rescue app?

It's the end of my minimum term, so it's time for a new SIM to go into the Samsung that has served me so well over the last couple of years.


I've been running the Virgin Mobile Rescue app to make sure I get the benefits (!) of the free insurance. One of the things it's supposed to do is lock up the handset if someone tries to use it with a different SIM.


Do I just need to uninstall the app before replacing the SIM, or is there more of a procedure to getting rid of this protection feature?

Hey Gorf


You could uninstall the app, or on the app itself you can disable the lock for when the SIM is swapped (providing you can remember the four digit PIN you would have created at initial setup)


Either of those should allow you to swap your SIM hassle free Smiley Happy
