request modem wireless sim-unlock



Unlock the Subscriber Identity Module (SIM) on the LTE Mini-PIM. Some service providers lock the SIM to prevent unauthorized access to the service provider's network. If this is the case, you will need to unlock the SIM by using an personal identification number (PIN), which is provided by the service provider. You can verify the unlocked mode using the show modem wireless firmware command.


If there are two SIM cards installed on the Mini-PIM, then only the active SIM card is unlocked.

The SIM must be unlocked before it can be used to connect to the service provider’s network.


  • interface-name—The LTE interface is denoted as cl-x/0/0, where x is the slot number in which the LTE Mini-PIM is installed.

  • pin unlock-code—Four-digit personal identification number (PIN). Obtain the PIN from the service provider.


    If the PIN is entered incorrectly three consecutive times, the SIM card is blocked. Obtain a PIN unblocking key (PUK) from the service provider.
