What is the use of PIN?

The PIN (Personal Identification Number) is a security feature of your SIM card. It is given when you connect to a network. Activating your PIN can prevent your mobile phone number from being used if it is lost or stolen. If you wish to activate your PIN or change it you can do so by using the security feature on your mobile phone.

Once you have placed an order and entered into a Pay monthly Contract, you can return the goods and cancel the order anytime within 14 days (7 days in case of T-mobile) from the activation date.
