View Full Version : [ubuntu] M600i Sony Ericsson requires PIN TO CONNECT

October 17th, 2010, 10:32 PM
Hi guys,

I recently installed the new Ubuntu 10.10. My Sony Ericsson M600i produces a window to enter a PIN to connect to the internet. The window reads 'The mobile broadband device Sony ericsson M600i requires a SIM Unlock PIN before connecting to the internet.'

I entered my SIM PIN and the network disconnected, I'm not sure what to do now. The phone works with no PIN request on Ubuntu 8.10.

Can anyone help?

Hi Alexfish,

Thanks for the reply. It wants the PIN when I connect the USB cable with the phone and also when I try to connect to the internet. If I click cancel, then the attempt to connect is discontinued and then the PC says connection unavailable.

This is a new setting in Linux Ubuntu 10.10 I figure, coz I'm connected with the same phone but on Ubuntu 8.10.

if the device requires a pin code , then enter the pin code, when requested

the device should then be available, It does not connect automatically after entering the pin code
unless you have ,connection detail set to connect automatically

or enter the pin code in the connection details.

see what happens.
