Samsung :: Rogue (SCH-U960) - NAM2 Lockout / Convert HEX To Decimal Number And Last 4 Digits Are Unlock Code
So the story begins that I've just switched from Att to Verizon because well I hate Att. Regardless I've never been on a CDMA network and I am never seen anything called a NAM before. Keep in mind I've had nothing but SIM Cards for the past 5 years. So I'm playing around with my settings and low and behold I come across NAM Select on my Samsung Rogue (SCH-U960) and have no idea what it is. Being the inquisitive person I am I switch it to the only other option available "NAM 2", (and of course previously I had changed the phone to lock itself upon rebooting/starting) Immediately the phone resets itself, thinking nothing of it. Here's the fun part.
So I called Verizon. Ok, yeah so they were at least nice to me while I was keeping composure, but that didn't last long, I could detect incompetence. Two and an half hour later: I've been put on hold to tech support where they run me through the book-fed codes such as "0000" "1234" and etc, to include the last four of the phone number (Yet when selecting NAM2, the phone is not programmed to use that code). Long story short I get mad at the dumb tech guy and hang up the phone because he's telling me that I'm going to have to send my phone in Under Warranty. I knew better.
This is how you fix your phone: Your first step is going to be to find a Hash Calculator such as HashCalc. Step 2 is simply to ensure that you calculate the SHA-1 for the MEID HEX number located on the back of your phone under the battery. When doing this ensure that you are inputting the data as HEX data. Take the last _6_ characters from this calculated sha-1 sum. You will use this to find your unlock code by adding 80 in front of those to get something that looks like 80XXXXXX. This number you will enter into the Windows Calculator (OR any scientific calculator that can convert HEX to DEC) As stated from here you enter this 7 digit hex code into the calculator and select the DEC radio button afterward. It will convert the number to decimal format. Use the last 4 of this number to unlock your phone. This is your unlock code. I was so shocked that this information was not on this forum that I had to add it myself. I did not discover this myself but rather paraphrased from another website. (I'd site the website but I've lost the address). Hopefully from here no one else will waste their time with such a busted tech support like Verizon's. Go download a hash calc verizon.

LG :: VX8800 How To Bypass Initial Programming Needed?
VX8800:Is access via USB affected by the "Initial programming needed"? I am not a Verizon subscriber and cannot get the phone programmed.All drivers were installed and up-to-date; however I get "USB Device was not recognized by Windows", and, naturally, BitPim and QMAT cannot access the device (ComPort errors).Is there a way of accessing a filesystem on the phone?

Samsung :: U520 - Codes Needed For Switching The Phone From Nam2 To Nam1
Ok, so, I read most of the rules, and I understood the "no codes" thing, but does that apply to the codes you need to switch your phone from nam2 to nam1? You see, I did that, being the bright genius I am, and now locked my smart self out of my phone. It's Samsung U520. I've tried a bunch of them, like 0000, 1111, 1234, and the last four digits of my phone number, to no avail.

Samsung :: SGH-U900 / Phone Lock Code
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.

Samsung :: SGH-T509 Phone Lock Code
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?

Nokia :: N85 - Firmware 20.175 Phone Constantly Asks For Lock Code - Entering Code Reads Error Message
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.

LG :: AX380 Service Programming Code
So I bought an AX380 (Wave) phone on ebay. New in box and all. The only problem is they changed the Service Code from "000000". So I'm wondering if there is any way to figure out what they may have changed the code too. The seller isn't any help as far as telling me what the code is at this point.

Samsung :: SCH A950 Lock Code / Called Verizon / Unable To Help And Referred To Samsung
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

Samsung :: Lost 4-digit Security Lock Code For Samsung Restore SPH-M570 / SPH-M575?
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.

LG :: Programming Over-ride / Lock Release?
I am a wholesaler/distributor and recently purchased a large quantity of LG VX8500 Chocolate phones which were all supposed to be PTG. Most were fine, but there were a few in the lot that have passwords and therefore are locked. Obviously 100% of these weren't tested by the supplier as promised. Short of going to a Verizon store, is there any override to reset the phone to factory spec? I am not a thief, crackhead, etc, and I didn't steal a phone out of someone's pocket, LOL. Though I'm sure that most crackheads are probably not as articulate in their request, I imagine they would need this information as well. If anyone is knowledgeable enough to address this, and would prefer to PM me, rather than posting, I would greatly appreciate it. Otherwise, I am left with un-sellable inventory.
Please note, these were purchased legitimately from bulk suppliers who deal directly with surplus corporate environments, as well as direct through Verizon overstock. They were obtained through all proper channels and I have documentation to substantiate this if desired.

Samsung :: SGH E747 - Asks For SP Lock Code?
I got a code to unlock the phone remotely. It was unlocked with the following method:
It said it was unlocked, but whenever my brother turns on the phone, he is prompted to enter a code at the "SP LOCK" screen. It's not the same code as the unlock code. He said he got a code from someone, it's another * code, but the problem is: whenever you turn on the phone it asks for the code. Is there a way to get rid of this?
