How do you change the PIN code of a Gigaset phone?

For certain actions on your Gigaset, you'll be asked for a PIN code. Think of pairing an extra handset or listening to the answering machine remotely. Here, you'll read how to set and change this PIN code.

Changing the System PIN

Change Gigaset PIN code

When you start using your Gigaset, the device will already have a PIN code. By default, this is set to 0000. You change this pincode as follows:

  1. Open the main menu.
  2. Go to 'Settings', represented with a gear symbol.
  3. Select 'System'.
  4. Now select 'System PIN'.
  5. Now enter the old PIN code. If the PIN code hasn't been changed, it's 0000.
  6. Confirm your choice with 'OK'.
  7. Enter a new PIN code. The PIN code should be between 4 and 9 digits.
  8. Save your choice.

Resetting the System PIN

You might have forgotten the PIN code. If you want to reset the PIN code to the default 0000, do as follows:

  1. Unplug the power cable from the base station.
  2. Press and hold the login/paging button while you plug the power cable back into the base station. The login/paging button has an icon that looks like WiFi logo.
  3. Don't let go of the login/paging button just yet. Hold it for at least another 5 seconds.

Note: when you reset the system PIN, all settings on the base station will be reset and all paired handsets will be unpaired.
