By tapping the [Lock SIM Card] checkbox to set a checkmark, you can set your PS Vita system to prompt you to enter your PIN every time the PS Vita system is turned on.
- To get the pre-set PIN, contact your mobile network operator or refer to the documentation provided with the SIM card.
- If you make a mistake three times in succession entering the PIN, the PIN will be locked and you will not be able to use it. To unlock it you must enter your PIN Unlock Key (PUK). For details, contact your mobile network operator or refer to the documentation provided with the SIM card.
This option can only be selected when [Lock SIM Card] is on. Follow the on-screen instructions to change the PIN.
