PIN is usually be prompted for accessing SIM card and that gives you 3 attempt. AS you mentioned about 10 attempt I guess that you're talking about device password access. After the 10th attempt you're device will be wiped like a factory default position. Then this password attempt will be reset to 10 access. At this point the loss to you will be device data unless you have a back up of your data.

Its pin code. Noted your comments only 3 attempts. How do I then increase it back to 3 attempts. Also what is the difference between pin code and pin code 2 ?

As mentioned in earlier post PIN codes is a property of your SIM card. After 3 attempt you'll be asked to enter Personal Unblocking Code (PUK) code. This PUK will allow you 10 attempt after which you're SIM will be damaged and you'll need to reissue the SIM card again.


PIN and PUK codes are provide by your carrier either printed in a paper that comes with SIM card or printed in SIM card plastic holder. If you don't have it you may ask for help from your carrier's customer help desk. Operators maintain a log of PIN and PUK for each SIM.
