Samsung :: Gravity 2 / Phone Lock Code For Unlocking
Dec 16, 2009
so one of my friends was playing with the Samsung Gravity 2 and put on a phone lock and now every time I turn the phone on it asks for a PHONE LOCK code.No one seems to remember it.is there a way to over-ride it?
It seems that I have been all over the internet looking for ways to get the java enabled so that I can use games and apps that I've downloaded on my samsung t401g for Net10(which is basically a prepaid version of the gravity for T-mobile). I've tried numerous codes with no success; whenever I enter one, it comes up with "Please wait, Network Action" and then "Unable to process request".
I recently got a T456 from Rogers and am not exactly pleased how much they locked it down. I didn't realize that wanting to use a custom MP3 would be such a big deal. Anyway, I tried the Sony DRM Packager which didn't work because when I copy the .dm file from the SD card it puts it in the "Other" folder instead of the "Ringtones" folder. In addition the phone cannot play the file at all. It would seem that Rogers or Samsung use some encoding that the packager doesn't use. I also discovered that unlocking the phone will not remove the software restrictions on the phone and to achieve that I would need to "unbrand" my phone. Is there an unbrand code similar to an unlock code or do I need to flash the firmware? I looked around for firmware information but couldn't find any.
I have a Samsung SGH-U900 that I havenít used for over a year. My main phone, an iPhone, has gone back into repair, again! So I decided to use the Samsung, but I had forgotten the sim lock code and the phone lock code.Now I have managed to guess the sim lock code so thatís ok, but I canít remember the phone lock, I donít want to unlock my phone to all networks, I just wanna get back into it. Does anyone please know how to bypass the phone lock so I can get back into it and start using it.My local phone shop said they can do it for a fee but there might be a risk that I loose all my stored photos, texts, contacts etc, but I wanna know if there is a way to bypass the phone lock without the risk of wiping the phone clean.
I just bought a phone on ebay and it is already unlocked therefore accepting any simcard, however when you turn ON the phone, the first thing it asks is for the "phone lock" code.
I have found many forums that say use 00000000 or some other code that resets it back to zeroes, but none of them work. Some other forums say insert an invalid simcard, but it already accepts ALL simcards. You can't enter * and # signs either.
I'm guessing that password was what the previous owner had on it. He told me that it was zeroes and if that doesn't work then send it back... Is there a way to hard reset the phone or firmware?
My brother has this phone and he is not able to get pass the Phone lock code because a friend of his mess around the phone and change the phone lock code and cannot remember it. Is there anyway to find the code?
bought a used samsung sgh-a777 slider phone from ebay. the seller neglected to do a master reset and does not know the phone lock code when it was sold to me. i basically got a full refund but told to keep the phone. so now i have a free phone that i cant use.does anybody know any methods to accessing the hidden menus or doing a master reset? i dont have a usb cable so i cant sync it up to a PC and play with it. any ideas??? my only other option is to call samsung support tomorrow.
I was playing around with settings on my phone and switched it from NAM 1 to NAM 2. It restarted the phone and now it says initial programing needed and I need a lock code.Can someone please help me switch it back!
Just sorting out some boxes and I found my old Clearnet/Telus SCH 8580. Thought I maybe able to give it away, who knows? If not it will go to a recycle box. Anyhow I wanted to clear the phone and reset to factory settings but the phone asks for a lock code! I dont remember ever using a code, if I did I obviously have erased from my own memory.Maybe there was a default code I used? Does any one have any idea or option to remove lock code.

As with a few people I have been having a couple of issues with my N85. Rebooting, Connection Errors, etc.Rang Nokia today to check to see if they had any solutions to the problem of the rebooting while charging and while on-hold thought I would check my firmware and got an update.
One very small problem I have found though is that my phone keeps asking for my lock code, and when I enter the code 12345 (I have not changed it) I get a message that COde has been entered 5 times and will unblock in 5 mins. THe phone still works fine however so not sure what is going on there.
How do I enter a phone unlocking code into my Xperia X8 I got the unlocking code from my service provider they told me to press the left arrow key then ** then left arrow key I have no idea where to find a left arrow key, the 2 arrow keys that I can see on my phone either deletes one of the stars or returnes to the home page from the keypad
How do I download and use my own ringtunes, or SMS alerts. I have a bunch that I have that cannot be downloaded from rogers that I want to use. Why wont it let me transfer over mp3's to the ringtones and how do I fix that?
I have E66 mobile i wants to format my phone but at the time of code i am entering default code 12345 but its not working even i not changed my code. Can some one help me how can i again reset my code so that i can access my mobile
I have a Samsung gravity T459, and when I take a pic with it and try and send it in a msg, it says the file is too big, I don't know why it does that. It does the same thing with videos, and it also asks me if I would like to resize it, and still wont send. whats going on?
I have a Cingular D807 and i used the unlocking reset here and works fine with my T-Mobile SIM card but ANY other SIM card i put it it asks for a SIM LOCK CODE. I never put any and all of the SIMs are new SIMs that have no code. So i go into security and i see that SIM LOCK in ENABLED but i never set one as well and to DISABLE it, it asks for a code, which i dont know it. What reset, resets everything even the user codes?. I already tried the SIM Unlock #0111Blahblah and says wrong password.
Has anyone successfully unlocked the Tmobile Samsung Vibrant using a 3rd party unlock code source? I have purchased a code with ebay seller "unlockadic" and unlockallcellular.com. Hopefully one of these sources come through with the code.
1) How do i stop the lock button from UNLOCKING my phone. It overrides the slide to open window on the touchscreen and leads to pocket dialing... VERY annoying and bad design choice. I want it to lock, not unlock the phone in my pocket.
2) When i connect my phone to my pc all i see is the SD card. How do i get at the pictures ON the phone, not on the card?
Hopefully someone can help me with this problem. I have a Samsung SCH a950 with Verizon serviced. I was discussing the NAM1 and NAM2 function with someone, and looked it up in my settings. I switched to NAM2 to see if there was any pre-programmed info. The phone turned off, then turned back on (reset), went into roaming mode, and displayed a screen that says initial programming needed. When I push OK it prompts to enter unlock code asking for 4 digits, just as it would normally if the phone was locked. Here is the problem, my code doesn't work, I tried the last for digits of the phone number thinking that it had reverted to default, didn't work. I tried 1234, 0000, 5555, etc. and so on. I couldn't find the code. I tried the last four of the ESN, and everything I could think of that the phone might revert to; still locked.
I called Verizon and they were unable to help and referred me to Samsung. Samsung told me it would have to be re-flashed w/ software, and told me that if I didn't want to do that, to contact Verizon tech services because they know the codes but regular customer support doesn't want to bother. I got ahold of tech support finaly after fighting with one Verizon rep who didn't want to transfer me. Tech support didn't have an answer and suggested I take it to a Verizon dealer to be re-flashed. I don't really want to do that because there is only one store in my area that has the software capability and from my experience the employees area incompetent with the exception of siging up people for new contracts. Also, the phone is working fine, my calender alarm went off at the right time, its receiving a signal, keeping time, etc. I'm just wondering if anyone has an idea for a lock code that I've over looked, or a work around to set it back to NAM1, or if there is a program such as BITPIM or something that I can do a work around or reset through my PC
I've lost the 4 digit user selected security lock code which is required to reset the phone.Virgin says Samsung should help recover the code and Samsung says Virgin should help recover the code.A while back, I found a code on the web that allowed me to go into a service menu which listed among other things the lock code. I can't find any information on how to get back into that menu.
By the way, yes, I tried the last 4 digits of the phone number, 0000, 9999, 1234.If anyone knows how to get into the service menu on this phone
The only codes I've found so far are:##786# which gets into an info menu but doesn't have the lock code.##33284# which requires a 6-digit security code which I don't know.
My friend played a joke on me where he set my lock code to something else then forgot it and i need to find out a way to learn what it is. Where i live there are no verizon stores. I have a samsung sch-u740. Does anyone know how i can get the lock code with software or is their a code to override it or something i can do to figure the lock code out.
