A simple one, I guess:

I recently bought a new (unlocked) iPhone, and at the same time changed my phone subscription to another operator. How can I set the PIN code on the new SIM card to something other than the default? With a quick look, I couldn't find anything related in iPhone settings.

You can find the option under Settings > Phone > SIM PIN.
