    There is "Set up SIM 2 card lock" below, as the HTC One M8 has a dual-SIM capability
    .
    We can use two SIM cards at the same time with the HTC One M8. We can use both processes. We can use the process that is shown in the tutorial for both of these card locks and these SIM cards. We have to make sure that we choose the right one that we want to use at the moment.

  10. 10
    We tap one of the two options, "Set up SIM 1 card lock" or "Set up SIM 2 card lock"
    .
    In this example, "Set up SIM 1 card lock" is tapped because it is the only SIM card on the phone. It's important in order to change the PIN code for a particular SIM, we need to set up the lock SIM card first. That means that we have to enter our PIN code. The PIN code that we want is on the plastic card that comes with the SIM card. When we bought the SIM card for the phone, the SIM card will have the PIN number on the piece of plastic that comes with the SIM card attached to it. We have to make sure that we have that PIN code now.

  11. 11
    We need to tap the bottom option, "Change SIM PIN"
    .
    As we all know, we have a lot of PIN codes in our lives and a lot of passwords, and it is very difficult to remember all of those numbers. It will be a lot easier if we change the PIN to the number with which we are familiar. So, we tap "Change SIM PIN".

  12. 12
    The phone will ask us to enter the old PIN
    .
    Unless it has been changed, this is the PIN that appears on the piece of plastic, the plastic card, that we got with our SIM card. We type the PIN now.

    We will be asked to enter a new SIM code
    .
    In this example, we are going to choose a very simple and basic PIN, because we don't need it to be too complicated. We need to choose one that is easy for us to understand and remember, and it also must be unique and personal for us. Don't use 1234 as I.
