COMMENTS

Pomerance proved that the sequence is finite and conjectured that 30 is the largest element. Hajdu and Saradha proved Recamán's conjecture that 2 is the only prime Pinteger. Both proofs use Jacobsthal's function A048669.
Hajdu, Saradha, and Tijdeman have a conditional proof of Pomerance's conjecture, assuming the Riemann Hypothesis.
Shichun Yanga and Alain Togbéb have proved Pomerance's conjecture.  Jonathan Sondow, Jun 14 2014

EXAMPLE

12 is a Pinteger because phi(12) = 4 and the first four primes coprime to 12 are 5, 7, 11, 13, which are pairwise incongruent modulo 12.
8 is not a Pinteger because phi(8) = 4 and the first four primes coprime to 8 are 3, 5, 7, 11, but 3 == 11 (mod 8).
