Powering phone without inserting PIN

Is it possible to turn my phone on without inserting the SIM Pin? In my Honor 9, I could just hit "cancel" and then insert my screen lock and the phone would turn on, with the SIM disabled until I inserted the PIN. This way I could have a note saved with my PIN, in case I forgot it.

I am unable to do that with the S21. Is there a way to go straight to the screen lock pin?

Not if you have the sim lock on thats kind of the point why would you want to bypass a security measure you've enabled that makes it useless

Not really, because the SIM would remain locked until I unlocked it via settings. I.e. I want to unlock the phone not the SIM.

More than once I have failed to remember my PIN and have a message with it saved in my phone files. But with the S21 I cannot "skip" inserting the SIM pin when powering the phone to use the phone.
