    You didn't say which model but the 3595 / 6010 needs it before it lets you pick
    whether you're going to store phone numbers in sim or phone or both. Older gsm
    phones such as the 6190 and 5190 you could read the code with logomanager.
    Newer phones couldn't be read but a complete factory reset could be forced, and
    you'd be back to the 12345. Jay in minnesota.

    The security code can be used to lock the entire phone's contents, dependant
    on the brand/model.

    It can also be used to sim-lock the phone, so without the code it'll only
    work with the one registered sim
