OID_WWAN_PIN_EX sets or returns expanded information related to Personal Identification Numbers (PINs).

Miniport drivers must process set and query requests asynchronously, initially returning NDIS_STATUS_INDICATION_REQUIRED to the original request, and later sending an NDIS_STATUS_WWAN_PIN_INFO status notification when they have completed the set or query request.

Miniport drivers should send NDIS_STATUS_WWAN_PIN_INFO status notifications containing an NDIS_WWAN_PIN_INFO structure to return PIN-type and PIN-entry state information, primarily to indicate whether a PIN is required to unlock the MB device or Subscriber Identity Module (SIM card) when completing query requests.

Callers requesting to set information related to PINs provide an NDIS_WWAN_SET_PIN_EX structure to the miniport driver to send a PIN to the MB device, enable or disable PIN settings, or to change a PIN on the SIM.



Versions: Supported in Windows 8 and later versions of Windows.
