    Hi, I'm in Portugal and after I put in a local sim card it asked for the sim's pin number and after I entered it all was well.

    But after I exchanged batteries it asked me again.

    Try one of three ..

    Is there a way to stop this? It never happened before.

    Thanks,

    Michael

    If it's what I'm thinking of, there should be an option in the settings menu.
    Settings > Security > sim card lock.

    Thanks.

    I just checked and the lock sim card box was checked.

    I unchecked the box and was asked to enter the sim number which I did and it accepted it. Then I took the battery out and reinserted it after which I was asked to enter the code again.
