SIM ( Subscriber Identity Module ) Cards


My Android Phone "BQ Aquaris U"

  • The BQ support wrote me about the purpose of the small metallic pin supplied with the smartphone: “Der metallische Pin, der dem Aquaris beigefügt wird, wenn es rechteckig ist und mit einem Stengel daran, dann dient das dazu, die Fächer für die Mikro-SD-Karte sowie für das SIM-Karten-Slot zu öffnen. Stecken Sie den Stengel kurz in das kleine Loch über dem SIM-Karten-Slot oder über dem SD-Karten-Slot und drücken Sie es kurz rein, dann springt das entsprechende Slot auf, damit Sie die entsprechende Karte hineinlegen oder entfernen können. Diese befinden sichan der seitlichen Kante des Gerätes. Aber Achtung: diesen Stengel nicht am oberen oder unteren Rand in ein Loch hineinstecken, sonst können Sie etwas kaputtpieksen!”.

Legacy traditional ( non-Smartphone, non-Android ) Telephones

  • “Samsung Ce0168” - My first classical legacy mobile phone, legacy WAP enabled :-), not the legacy tablet.
    • The “PIN” is the login password. Please remember it, you have just 3 tries to enter.
    • If you want to reset the phone to factory settings or delete the phonebook, you are asked for a “Password”, which is not the “PIN”. You were never forced to setup, so probably it is still the default 8-digit password “00000000” ( = 8 times zero ).
