SOURCE: Phone Lock - Samsung SGH-X670

The Phone-Lock is a manually set code, this means that you or the previous owner set this code on the phone to prevent it from being stolen.

Consult the previous owner to get this code.

Second option is to have Samsung remove this code for you, but this option usually costs money.

 

SIM-lock can be removed by contacting the provider the phone is locked to.

SOURCE: subsidy code

Phones are locked to their carrier so you cannot switch carriers with that phone. The subsidy code is a code that will unlock the phone so it can be used on different carriers. You can get that code from the previous carrier if they are nice enough. But most won't because you are not a customer anymore. Here is a way i recommended a T-mobile customer to get their phone unlocked for cingular.:

There are a couple of ways to do this, one is completely safe and the other is fairly safe, but may require you to mail the phone in to someone to have this done.

The best way is if you are still a T-Mobile customer, to call them and have some good reason to use it on a different carrier. The best excuse is that you will be traveling overseas and want to use carriers there so the calls will be cheaper. Do not let on that you will be switching carriers. They did my Razr for me and it took about 3 days for the code. When you call customer service, just tell them that you want to submit a sim unlock request. They will transfer you to a different department. They will gather info (like the phones serial number) and will email you the unlock code. Their website says that they will only unlock one phone per account every 90 days. But they unlocked 2 phones for me in the same phone call (both were razr's). Once you unlock it it can be used on any carrier except Verizon and Sprint (different technologies). Then just switch carriers. For more info on this you can go to T-Mobile.com and type in "sim unlock request" in the search box.

The other way, which may include mailing your phone to a stranger is having someone unlock it for you. There are services on-line that will do this. Some can do it without mailing the phone to them. But some require you to mail it to them so they can unlock it with a cable instead of the code. The usual cost is about $20.00

But the best way if you are not with T-Mobile anymore is to call around to authorized retailers and ask if the unlock phones. Some do it for about $20 (but no mailing it in risk) and some do it for free is you sign up to a new carrier through them. They want your business any way they can get it.

Zip code for south africa


South Africa - Country code = +27
ZIP
codes are a system of postal codes used by the United States Postal Service (USPS) since 1963. The term ZIP, an acronym for Zone Improvement Plan, was chosen to suggest that the mail travels more efficiently, and therefore more quickly (zipping along), when senders use the code in the postal address.
To call South Africa from the U.S., just follow these dialing instructions: First dial 011, the U.S. exit code. Next dial 27, the country code for South Africa. Then dial the 2-digit area code (see sample calling code list below) followed by the 7-digit phone number.
South Africa Telephone Code 27. South Africa telephone code 27 is used to make international calls from South Africa. You may also see 27 referred to as the South Africa country phone code, or South Africa international calling code.
