Samsung Galaxy S3: How to Change PIN2

As we have learnt before, in Samsung Galaxy SIII you can restrict outgoing call by turning on fixed dialing on your phone. Once you enable this option, your phone will only be able to make a call to emergency numbers and to the selected number that you have been added into FDN list.

When you add fixed number into FDN list, you will be prompted to enter PIN2. As with PIN, you can also change your PIN2 to the new ones you like.

How to change PIN2 code?
To do so kindly following the steps below:
  1. Go to Apps through Home screen.
  2. Tap Phone.
  3. Tap the Menu key.
  4. On pop up menu select Call settings.
  5. Scroll to Additional settings, then tap on it.
  6. Tap Fixed Dialing Numbers.
  7. To change your PIN2 tap Change PIN2.
  8. Enter your 4 digit current PIN2. When you never change your PIN2, the default is 0000, then tap OK button.
  9. Enter your new 4 digit PIN2 then tap OK button.
  10. Enter your new 4 digit PIN2 again to confirm your new PIN2 then tap OK button.
  11. Finish. Now you have managed to change your current PIN2 with the new one you like.

Well, by knowing on how to change PIN2, now you can change its number to the number you like or the number you more easier to remember. But, for the record, if you entering wrong PIN2 three times in a row then your SIM will be blocked and you need to enter your PUK2 to unblock it. You can obtained PUK2 by contacting your service provider. So, hope it helps :)
