The invention relates to a method for a first start-up operation of a secure element (30), which is not fully customized and which allows the use of services of a mobile radio network, in a mobile terminal (10). In the method, the secure element (30) is started and prompted to transmit a status message. The secure element (30) transmits a status message which states whether the secure element: S1) contains only a bootloader (32) but as yet no firmware image for the secure element; S2) contains a firmware image for the secure element (30) but is not yet fully customized; or S3) is fully customized. The secure element (30) is accepted in cases S1), S2) and S3) and rejected in other cases.
