Oct 3, 2008
own a samsung SGH-E250 which i tried unlocking. i used code *2767*3855# reset was done and now my IMEI # is erased it's now all zeros(000000/00/000000/0) can phone be used without having an imei#? how can i have it replaced? when sim is placed into phone and pin is entered, then request for sim lock appears, whats the sim lock code and how is it acqiured?
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.
I hope you didn't click on this thread looking for the formula because I don't have it. Instead this is more of a rhetorical question venting my frustration. Why don't we know this formula? I've unlocked phones from other manufacturers with information I've found on the net. This should be no different. So what if it's per IMEI, that means there has to be a formula for it. I have counted at least 8 different companies that offer to unlock Blackjacks for $20 or more, and I have to wonder how did they get the formula to do this?
I know that flashing the D900 without the "do not auto format" checked results in files leftover on the phone and I've read it can cause problems when upgrading. But if you leave it unchecked your IMEI number is reset to zero and there's no easy way to fix it.What I am wondering is what implications, if any, would I have if I lost my IMEI number? I use TMobile and Cingular in the US, when I swapped my sim cards out of my old phones to my D900 I didnt have to call them with my IMEI numbers so I'm thinking they dont check them. Would I run into problems now or possibly in the future if the IMEI gets reset to zeros? Any other implications losing your IMEI number could have?.
I own an A737 phone from AT&T. I called up and got an unlock code from them. They gave it to me, and told me all I have to do is put in the other SIM and enter the code. I put in a T-mobile prepaid SIM and did that. It gets me past the initial padlock screen to my main screen, but when I try to call it still says invalid SIM. What else do I have to do to unlock the phone? I want to use it with prepaid SIMs on an upcoming trip abroad.
I had a customer that was locked out of his U340 I tried the normal codes last 4 of phone #, 9999, 1234, etc. But couldn't get it I know some phones (at least audiovox) there is a code you can enter to get the unlock code for the phone, is there one for the U340 that anyone knows of. (I will also post this in the Alltel forum)
is there a way around setting what I want as a ringtone? my phone says "non-DRM file, cannot set as ringtone" everytime. I looked some info up but I found that I need the 8 digit unlock code which supposedly with the Gravity needs a specific unlock code for each phone. is there a way to get the unlock code for it other than calling Rogers, they can't give it to me because they don't have it.
I found a samsung sch-r410 and nobody ever called to claim the phone. i figured i would use it but the phone is locked. is there a way i can get the phones unlock code or am i SOL and should just toss the phone?
I was referred to this site by a rogers customer care after iI have called them for an unlock code for my Samsung t456. He said I could get some help here, I am moving to Jamaica and I want to used this phone.
I had a Samsung A740 at one time and I was not really using it much so I got it canceled after my contract was up.Lately I feel the need to re-activate it, but I forget my unlock code to get into stuff like the security settings, pictures, changing my background etc.Is there some sort or default code that would wipe out whatever unlock code I have in there? Or a reset code to factory defaults or something. Can I take it to a dealer and could they reset it for me?I'd rather not have to take it in and probably get charged something for it. Also, I'd rather not have to wipe out the data because I have photos in there of my son when he was just born... but if I must I must I guess.Any help would be appreciated.
I got a Bell Samsung Wave and want to unlock it. Ive searched around and bought an unlock code from two unlockers online but unfortunately they cannot unlock my phone. Anyone know where or who can unlock my phone?
I got the unlock code, entered it into my Samsung and it said personalization canceled but when I put in my Fido Sim Card it says sim lock. I tried all types of 0 codes, 0000 00000 000000 00000000 and none of them worked. What should I do?
Just got a samsung galaxy s2 earlier today. Unfortunately, it is locked to the O2 network and I need it on the orange network.Learning via google, I have rooted the phone, and tried the 'Galaxy S2 sim unlock' application to find the unlock code but it came back with the following message 'cannot find unlock code' Just wondering is there something I have done wrong? Also have an annoying yellow triangle with an exclamation mark that comes up every time the phone is rebooted.
i have recently changed from O2 to three and taken my number with me. I have requested, and received an unlock code for my S2, which I plan to sell, however, the instructions say: "Insert another network active sim in the handset. This should ask for a code. Input 8 digit unlock code when requested." But when I try another active sim, (I have tried both Three and Orange), it does not ask for a code
Had this samsung sch-n370 for about 3-4 years. never failed keept as backup phone, until now it's needed but the problem I can't remember the lock code to unlock that darn phone! (i don't even know if a data cable exist for it) what can I do? can my provider reset it? I need this to to replace my existing phone number/service I lost my phone & this one will be my main one.
I just bought a T509 on Ebay, it was supposed to be unlocked and it looks like it was because it worked with my AT&Twireless SIM card but only for about a week. I called Samsung support and I was told that I need a subcity unlock code from T-Mobile. I live in Los Angeles. Can anybody provide that code for me?
My friend has had this phone without service for over a year now. He gave it to me in the hopes i could unlock it and use it as a backup to my iphone. Ive found how to unlock it but it looks like i need a unlock code from tmobile? they require a current number with them tho? Also he did not have a charge cable, just a usb cable. is there any way to charge it with this cable?
I purchased a used blackjack I607. It's an At&T phone and one of the newer original Blackjacks, i.e. not a Blackjack II and has AT&T in lower case with the globe. I put a 3g AT&T SIM in the phone (SIM is less than a month old) and get the following message: "This phone can only be used with a specific SIM. Enter the unlock code or insert an approved SIM". I called AT&T, they don't think it's their problem. The guy suggested that even though the phone APPEARS to be a newer model, maybe it's older and therefore configured for the old cingular/AT&T network. I tried a PUK code; didn't work. I tried a phone unlock code. Phone locking is disabled but I still get this message. I entered the unlock code in the message block and get INVALID PASSWORD message. I've tried 2 different SIM cards, same message with both (and both are AT&T sim).
I'm thinking it must be the phone?? Someone suggested that the prior owner locked it and I'd need the password from him. I'm sure it's possible but I'm betting that's not the case. Someone else suggested that the phone has a security feature that will allow use of only one SIM in case of loss or theft of phone. If it is the phone, does anyone know of any way to crack this thing so I can use my existing SIM? One post on the Cingular forum (same problem apparently) had the user buying a new SIM and that didn't solve anything; same error. Can I redo firmware maybe? Reset didn't do anything. As it is right now, I've got a very expensive retangular hockey puck (or alarm clock).
I have made it further then most people some can't even get their computer to recognize the phone but anyways to my question. I have unicdma and cdma workshop. I cannot get the unlock code its say unknown. Can someone help me with this. I am and trying to flash cricket.
I'm having trouble unlocking my samsung bebold from tmobile to put on the rogers network in canada. I did get an unlock code fro tmobile with instructions but it doesn't work!! I really want to use my phone.
I had activated the screen lock feature for my mobile. I had used fingerprint detection and the password method. I discovered that if the password is entered wrong 5 times, the phone erases all the data on the phone as well as the memory card. I want to disable this feature.When the password is entered wrong 5 times. It should just not allow the user to enter password for another 5 minutes.
I'm on the o2 uk network, and have a BB Curve 9630 (I think lol, can't check as I'm using it to write this) my problem is my phone is letting me acess the net, send receive emails and use bbm, but can't send or receive texts or calls. I contacted o2 who said there's no prob with network and sim works in a different phone ok. I'm a pay as you go customer. I was looking for the same thing, to change imei to another BB curve I have that won't go on, but don't think that's gna happen. Ii checked status of unlocks/locks everything says disabled except network, that's saying inactive
