    As a first step, you should tap the menu button and then tap the ‘Settings’. The next step required is to locate the ‘Location & Security’ option. Once you find this option, you should make a single tap over it. Then, you should locate and tap the ‘Set up SIM card lock’ option. You can find ‘Change SIM PIN’ item under this option. You should tap that item and enter the ‘Old PIN’ into the corresponding text box after tapping it. You should then tap the ‘OK’ option. Then, you should tap the next text box and enter ‘New PIN’. After tapping the ‘OK’ option, you should re-enter the ‘New PIN’ in another text box and tap the ‘OK’ button near to it.

    Hi,
    You can change the PIN in your android phone by opening the "Settings" menu from the application drawer and then select the option as "Location&Security". In Location&Security option you will have to select the option as "Setup SIM Lock" once you enter the menu you have to check the option as to "Lock SIM card" by enabling it you will be asked to enter the SIM pin enter the SIM pin and then you will find an option as to "Change the SIM pin" select the option so that you can change the current SIM pin, once you select that option it will prompt you to enter the old and then enter the New Pin enter them so that your phone is now secure. When ever you turn ON the phone you will have to enter the SIM pin only then the phone will be started and also entering the SIM pin wrong more than 3 times Locks the SIM card. So be careful while you are using this option.
    Hope this Helps.
