ICC-related (SIM/RUIM card)
own phone number and other ICC I/O related features
entering PIN, PIN2, PUK, PUK2 to unlock various states of the  SIM card. Entering the PIN isn't *that* exotic, actually. Some carriers  deliver their SIM cards with the PIN lock enabled, for instance.
changing the PIN (also serves as enabling/disabling the PIN lock.)
device-related
get IMEI, IMEISV
depersonalize (remove network lock)
baseband-related information and features
