Question about Samsung SCH-u740 Cellular Phone

Phone locked will not unlock

My daughter thought her brother had done something to her phone SO she pushed a bunch of buttons and ended up choosing NAM2. Then the phone shut off, when it came up it said "initial programming needed" when she pushed "ok" it asked for her lock password. She doesn't have a second phone line, or provider and it will not accept her last 4 digits of her phone number as her code.

Unlock Samsung galaxy s5

Depends on what you mean by unlock...
Carrier unlock must be done by a carrier

Factory unlock requires a hard reset by turning off the phone. Then by holding the volume down button, the home button, and the power button until you see small blue lettering in the upper left corner of the screen. Then use the volume down button to navigate to wipe/reset, them push the power button. Wait for it to reset and reboot, them press the power button to finish. This will not unlock from carrier, but it will reset the phone to factory state removing all user data including any passwords / passcodes.

Food for thought... even if you unlock by carrier, you will be limited to what carrier you can use...if the phone is CDMA, you can only use it with other CDMA carriers. Same for GSM phones.

Forgot pin unlock puk

Hi. The phone can be used again but must be wiped. Therefore, if your contacts were not synced or saved to your sd card, you will loose them. To wipe:
1. Turn off phone.
2. Press and hold the volume DOWN button
3. Press and hold the POWER button. Release both buttons when a white screen appears.
4. Scroll down to Factory Reset
5. Sit Back, relax and wait for your phone to be new again.
You can now use your phone again.

Thank you for choosing Fixya

My daughter was playing with my phone and has locked it. Because I did not see what buttons she pushed - it has locked me out. It is asking for 4 digits, but she is only one and obviously can not tell me...

Depending were you got your phone from, or simply go to a phone shop, they can unlock it for you, but you have to pay. Its really the only option.. unless you sit for hours and hours going through different methods of 9 different buttons!! So i suggest not to do it online because they scam you o_O goodluck!! ~Brii

Can't unlock Samsung Hue?

samsung hue r500 and having problem when accidentally or curiously selected nam2.. after it powers off then on again by itself, it brings u to a little window (initial programming needed) and the enter code (password). as you will notice none of your 4 digit passwords will work, default wont work, u have to push the back or end call button to get away from the enter code window. enter ##626# and hit send button. it will bring u to option to select nam1 or nam2, select nam1.. go to next screen, enter in the sdc code which is 000000, (6 zeros), enter or next screen, make sure that mid is same as ur cell number, go to next screen, it will show ur number again, next screen, will be sid and nid numbers... they are what they should be, go next screen, then i think there is option to be done, view, edit choose done, next screen then it will program by itself. powering on then off, bringing u back to same screen with the same window of initial programming needed, just go to enter code, and enter the last 4 of your cell number, and it will let u through,.. just remember to go back in to your phone options menu and change the nam setting in there back to nam1 also. then it will power off and on again. program should be complete... you can always also dial *228 and option 2 to reprogram your phone again to make sure.

Envy 2 dials phone numbers accidentally- need to set key guard

On the front keypad, press the ok button until you have the option to select contact list. Scroll down that list until you see keyguard settings. Press ok to enter keyguard settings and then go to option 2 - unlock options. Select two step unlock. This will force the user to press "ok" and then "clr" in order to dial out. This has resolved the problem for me...Good luck.
