    Choose Settings > Phone > SIM PIN and turn the SIM PIN On. You will be prompted to enter the current PIN (iPhone ships with a default SIM PIN, please see the table below to determine what should be entered). You can then tap Change PIN to assign a different PIN number.

    Default Sim Pin for AT&T is 1111

    "You can enter up to 3 incorrect answers for the SIM PIN before iPhone asks you to enter the PUK code. Contact your carrier to get the PUK code. Note: If you enter the incorrect PUK code too many times (10 incorrect guesses), the SIM will become permanently locked and you'll need to replace the SIM."


    If the problem is not resolved, I would see about getting a new Sim, or making an appointment with a Genius.

    Could jailbreak it just for the purpose of getting in there (and restore again if you want a "vanilla" setup), or if you've got a spare GSM phone anywhere, you should be able to remove the PIN using that.
