Anyway, you should be able to sought it out once you go to you bank and tell them about it. As long as you have proof of who you are, like a passport or something you were told to remember when you first got the card.
With Smile I just ring them up (no branches to visit of course) and they'll usually have the PIN reset within a few hours or by the next day. If you don't need the PIN changed there shouldn't be any reason it can't be done on the phone, but it depends on your bank of course.
I once blocked my PIN trying to activiate a card reader for online banking, I thought I was entering the right pin and I couldn't understand why it kept saying 'Wrong PIN', when in actual fact I was entering a PIN for another card I have, lol. I just took it to an ATM and entered the PIN when it asked me, selected PIN management or something similar and selected unblock PIN.
Our answer is:
Whilst shopping, if you enter your PIN incorrectly three times in a row (even at different stores), your PIN will become 'locked'. You will need to go to a Lloyds TSB Cashpoint® in order to 'unlock' your PIN. You will not be able to use your card with your PIN in shops until it is unlocked. If you have forgotten your PIN completely you will need to contact us so we can order a new one.
