    Thanks for the information, by doing this, it is deactivated only in this terminal or if I put the card in another if it asks for the code, because if you lose the mobile, it would be nice to ask for the code if they put the card in another.

    The card is blocked. It means that if that card is placed in another mobile, they cannot use it, so they have no signal until they enter the four-digit sim pin. It is very useful. I use it and when I turn on the iPhone it automatically asks you for the sim pin.
