    • to receive an e-mail containing a new number of your telephone, enter an e-mail address in the E-Mail Address field
    • to block the device if the SIM card is replaced, or if the device is turned on with the SIM card removed, select the Block box for the If SIM card replaced setting. You can unblock the device only by entering the secret code
