    1. Hi Nice Nani,
      Thanks for coming.
      Use the PIN2 to turn on or off FDN and make sure you've entered the PIN2 correctly. Other way, you may have to call your provider to ask them to help you turn off FDN in your phone. Some provider may need to turn on or off certain feature manually.
      Hope this helps :)
