Swisscom mobilid SIM experiences

Swisscom has sent me a new sim for the mobilid feature.

Has anyone done this? Is it as straightforward as the Swisscom instructions indicate?

I don't want to trash my phone.

It's nothing to be afraid of. I work for Swisscom and we use it for authetification for some intranet stuff.
It will just show small popup when time comes, and you write you password. Done.

Yes, got it, put it in my phone and it worked. Just mind that the settings on your SIM card are gone, so anything there, youŽd need to add again

Re: Swisscom mobilid SIM experiences

Just for the sake of anyone bumping into this.

The new SIM comes with a new new PIN (and PUK).

If you want to set the PIN back to what you have used since forever, then all you need to do is:

1) Enter the WRONG PIN 3 times.
2) It will ask you for your PUK (on back of card the new SIM came with) - enter this correctly.
3) Phone will ask you to enter a new PIN.

done.

Or if you have an iPhone, go to Settings - Phone - SIM PIN - Change PIN
