Hi there just bought a 3310 for my hubby its not high tech but it does what he needs and thats fine. on his old Nokia he didnt have a keyguard pin but he did have a sim pin so when you turn the phone off and on again it asks for the pin number. try as i might i cannot find where this option is in order to add it on to his new phone. i would have thought under security (logical i thought) but all i get there is keyguard or call barring options. any help gratefully received.

Hi @facthuntuk

The PIN code (Personal Identification Number) can be enabled to prevent unauthorised access to your giffgaff SIM. The default PIN at point of manufacture for your giffgaff mobile SIM is 5555.

When enabled, your PIN code is requested when you switch your mobile on or when you insert your SIM into a compatible mobile. You have three attempts to enter the PIN code into your mobile correctly before the mobile requests a PUK code to reset it.

New Nokia 3310 Security Settings

New Nokia 3310 Settings
New Nokia 3310 Security Settings -It is said the New Nokia 3310 phone’s update security, key features, like its long battery life, will remain at the heart of the design. HMD is trying to make Nokia great again by going full vintage and re-releasing its best model.The return of a modern classic – the iconic Nokia 3310, reborn with a modern twist on design. All Nokia phones launched will be available in single SIM and dual SIM variants.

New Nokia 3310 Security Settings

The 3310 is mostly known for its durability and long battery life. But regarding security, its only edge over a contemporary device is that it is just a phone, no Play Store, no malware and so on. HMD Global, the home of Nokia phones, today unveiled a new generation of Nokia smartphones, setting a new standard in design, quality and user experience throughout the range.

Nokia 3310 Guide

The highly anticipated global portfolio features three new smartphones – the new Nokia 6, delivering performance and immersive entertainment in a premium and extremely robust design; Nokia 5, an elegant smartphone that fits perfectly in your hand; and Nokia 3, which delivers an unprecedented quality at an affordable price point. The new range of Nokia smartphones all run Android Nougat and offer a pure, secure and up to date experience and will all feature Google Assistant. The new 3310’s actual security features, however, are quite a basic security:
    1. Keypad lock
      • This is the equivalent of the lock screen on your contemporary smartphone. However, the phone is locked and unlocked by just pressing the menu button, which makes locking much less of a security feature and more of a way to prevent you from pocket-dialing contacts.
    2. Security code
    3. Advertisement


    • This Nokia 3310 security code is a code that the phone asks for when you insert a new Nokia 3310 SIM card. The idea is to have some method of authentication, so other people wouldn’t be able just to plug a SIM into your stolen phone and access your messages and call logs. The phones come with the code preset as 12345, but users are allowed – and advised – to change it to another one.
  1. PIN code
    • The PIN’s security function on this phone was limited to securing the SIM card. The device requests it each time it is switched on – which, given its notoriously long battery life, is not supposed to be that often. Entering a wrong PIN three times locks the SIM. Undoing this is done via the PUK code which is supplied by the user’s network carrier.
  2. Changing codes
    • Another cutting edge feature – you can choose your own security code, PIN, PIN2 and barring password. This way you are not stuck with the default ones like 0000 or 1111. However, as you can guess, being able to use just the numbers from 0 to 9 and having just four digits, limits your possibilities to 10,000 combinations.

New Nokia 3310 Security Settings

You can edit the available Nokia 3310 new security settings. You can edit the security settings depending on a setting. You can set them to be either on or off, and check the status of the setting.
You can add phone numbers to a list to be blocked and create a closer user group.
  1. Select Menu > > Security settings > Change codes.
  2. Select the code you want to change, either Change security code or Change barr. password.

Nokia 3310 Tutorials

The relaunch of the 3310 at such an affordable price positions it in a niche of super-cheap phones. Releasing such a device in emerging markets probably makes sense, but not in Europe, where HMD is planning to sell it. The only privacy-related purpose such a phone could have today is to be used by criminals for one-time calls, Breaking Bad style, after which they would throw it away. Nokia 3310 manual open the security settings:
  • Select Menu > Settings and Phone > Phone mgmt. > Security > Phone and SIM card.
Select from the following new Nokia 3310 Security Settings:
  1. PIN code request — When active, the code is requested each time the device is switched on. Deactivating the PIN code request may not be allowed by some SIM cards.
  2. PIN code and PIN2 code — Change the PIN and PIN2 code. These codes can only include numbers. Avoid using access codes similar to the emergency numbers to prevent accidental dialling of the emergency number. If you forget the PIN or PIN2 code, contact your service provider. If you forget the lock code, contact a Nokia Care point or your service provider.
  3. Lock code — The Nokia3310 lock code is used to unlock the device. To avoid unauthorised use of your device, change the lock code. The preset code is 12345. The new code can be 4-255 characters long. Alphanumeric characters and both uppercase and lowercase characters can be used. The device notifies you if the lock code is not properly formatted. Keep the new code secret and separate from your device.
  4. Phone autolock period — To avoid unauthorised use, you can set a time-out after which the Nokia 3310 automatically locks. A locked device cannot be used until the correct lock code is entered. To turn off autolock, select None.
  5. Lock if SIM card changed — Set the Nokia 3310 lock SIM and ask for the lock code when an unknown SIM card is inserted into your device. The device maintains a list of SIM cards that are recognised as the owner’s cards.
  6. Remote phone locking — Enable or disable remote lock.
  7. Closed user group — Specify a group of people to whom you can call and who can call you (network service).
  8. Confirm SIM services — Set the device to display confirmation messages when you are using a SIM card service (network service).

Hello @facthuntuk

 

Reading the Nokia 3310 manual it suggests you should be able to find the pin settings under the security menu. I have copied a link with instructions how to change/apply the various security codes to the phone. See this extract below.

 


New Nokia 3310 Security Settings

You can edit the available Nokia 3310 new security settings. You can edit the security settings depending on a setting. You can set them to be either on or off, and check the status of the setting.
You can add phone numbers to a list to be blocked and create a closer user group.
Select Menu > > Security settings > Change codes.

I hope this helps you find the pin code you want to add to the SIM card.

Just to be clear @facthuntuk the SIM needs to be in the phone to be able to set the SIM PIN. The option will not appear otherwise.

 

Apologies if I am stating the obvious.

 

And if you are sticking the old phone's SIM in, the PIN will already be set.
