a. Kindly ensure a SIM with regular load. b. Remove/ reinsert the SIM on to your O+ device. c. If the SIM gets removed, a notification goes to your Emergency Contacts ( e.g . friends or relatives, other personal numbers). The message reads " Your SIM card has been changed or phone might be stolen". d. Once notification SMS has been received, reply with #opluspin# . Make sure to get a regular load to continue. e. A new SMS will be sent back including the latest PIN to unlock your phone. f. Use this PIN to your O+ handset. Take note of this code as you can use it each time you change your SIM.
