You just need to reflash your phone in nearest local mobile repair shop to unlock samsung star GT-S5233A from old password. Don't put any code from untrusted source, it will not helped you to unlock samsung password and can make your sim card blocked.

I have a Samsung GT-S5223A I forgot the PHONE LOCK. According to my service provider the phone is actually not manufactured in the US. No one has the Default Unlock code. It only accepts 8 characters...


Try use this code *2767*3855# to unlock samsung star gt-s5233, don't forget to take the SIM card out before you entering that code to avoid ascii blocking character. This method should unlock samsung phone, if not working try this code *2767*2878# all remain step entering this code still same like before. But if both code can't unlock your phone use this last option to reflash your phone in mobile repair shop. Good luck!

My parents just bought a samsung t.v. and to get a QWERTY remote, we need the TV serial number, i was wondering, where i get that?


Hi,

It will be on a label on the back of the TV. Samsung serial numbers should be 15 characters long and a combination of letters and numbers. The serial number should be preceded by "S/N".

Hope this helps. Please let me know if you need further assistance.

Regards,
BElectric

LOOKING FOR THE CD KEY OF THE SIMS 2 DELUXE? THE KEY THAT I HAVE IS : 6144-Z79C-53F7-JNHC-5V7 I THINK THEIR IS A NUMBER OR A LETTER SORT, CAN YOU PLEASE HELP ME?


Friend,
No one would be able to provide the missing character. And it seems that it is the last group (5V7) that has a missing character. What I suggest is that you start trying all characters starting from 0 to 9 and A to Z. Makes it a total of 36 characters in all. That many tries at the most you would have to make.

Isamsung glyde phone locked in nav 2 mode


I'm not sure if this is really necessary for anything other than Samsung phones, but I've only ever seen this issue come up when dealing with Samsung phones. Here's a scenario: You're messing around with the various settings in your phone's menu, and you switch your phone to NAM2 in the process. Your phone resets, and you find that your phone is now locked. Unfortunately, your normal lock code doesn't work. What do you do?

First off, you should probably understand what NAM1 and NAM2 are. Basically, think of them as containers. Each of these "containers" holds a phone number. Yes, you can have two phone numbers on a single cell phone. I generally don't recommend it, though, as you can only have one of the two numbers active on the phone at any given time, meaning that you'll miss all of your calls on the number whose NAM you're not on at the moment. Also, NAM2 generally can't accept over-the-air programming, so you'll need to manually program your account information into it, and you'll need to have updated roaming information loaded into your phone in one of your carrier's retail stores (assuming that they even support NAM2).

So, why am I telling you about NAM1 and NAM2? Well, your default lock code (assuming that you never specified your own) is generally going to be the last four digits of your phone number. Problem is, NAM2 doesn't have a phone number in it by default, so you'll need to somehow figure out what the default lock code is set to on NAM2.

Secondly, you'll need to locate a hexadecimal code, usually found inside of your phone's battery compartment. There are two different types of hexadecimal codes that you'll need to be on the lookout for: ESN and MEID. Now, Samsung phones generally don't have these numbers labeled, but it's easy enough to find them. An ESN in HEX format will be eight characters long, whereas an MEID in HEX format will be fourteen characters long. MEID's tend to begin with the letter A from my experience.

Now, depending on which type of hexadecimal code you found in the previous step, you'll need to take one of two different paths in determining your unlock code...

Let's start with the easier path, the ESN...

Thankfully, all you need for this one is a scientific calculator. If you're using Windows, then simply launch Calculator. Once you've launched Calculator, you'll want to choose View > Scientific from the menu bar.



Once you're in scientific mode, click on the Hex radio button, then enter the eight-character ESN.



Now, click on the Dec radio button to convert your ESN into DEC format. Now, do bear in mind that this won't be the same as the ESN number in DEC format on your phone's battery compartment label. That's why only the ESN in HEX format is important. Anyway, the last four digits of the resulting number are what you'll want to enter in order to unlock your phone.



Now, let's move on to the slightly more involved path, the MEID...

Really, the only reason that I consider this to be harder than the previous path is because it requires a tool that isn't available on most computers by default. Basically, you'll need to find a hash calculator, specifically one that's capable of working with the SHA-1 algorithm. You don't really need to understand what the SHA-1 algorithm is in order to unlock your phone, but - in case you wanted to know, anyway - I suppose that it'd best be described as a method of making pieces of code more secure. SHA-1 and other similar algorithms simply make changes to code in order to make said code more secure.

Anyway, I'd recommend HashCalc, as it's free and easy-to-use. Once you've downloaded and installed HashCalc, launch it. Change the Data Format option to Hex String, then enter your fourteen-character MEID. Be sure to check the SHA1 checkbox, then click on Calculate. See that long code that appeared to the right of the SHA1 checkbox? Write down the last six characters of it, as they'll be vital in determining your lock code.



Now, this next part will look more than a little familiar. Basically, you'll want to have a scientific calculator for this, just as we did for the first path. Again, in Windows, you can simply launch Calculator and choose View > Scientific from the menu bar.



Once you're in scientific mode, click on the Hex radio button. There's a problem, though: We don't have an eight-character code to put in as we did before, and we need an eight-character code in order to figure out our lock code. Well, thankfully, the first two characters in the eight-character code are always going to be 80. As such, your eight-character code will be the number 80, followed by the six characters that you wrote down after using HashCalc. Now that you have an eight-character code, input that code into your calculator.



Now, click on the Dec radio button. As before, the last four digits of the resulting number is your lock code.

If i have been blocked on someone else phone, will changeing my number allow me to contact the person?


Yes, because the phone recognize the character, not the person, but if the person that block you finds out that that is your new phone number, he or she will block the new number, so as you can see, not much logic to change the number. Good luck.
