If you haven't used your SIM to share airtime before, your default pin is 0000 but you can't use it, you would have to change it a new one.

"[Default PIN] [New PIN] [New PIN]"

Something like this;

0000 1234 1234

Send the message to 777.

Or you can dial *600*default PIN*New PIN*New PIN#. For example, dial *600*0000*1234*1234# and click send/ok.

After sending that message, in a few minutes you will receive an SMS saying;
