I have the above model of a Samsung Cell and until yesterday it was working fine. Now I cannot unlock it. i have tried to remove the battery and no luck.
Also, it says to press * but when I do, it simply goes back to the unlock page. -IE nothing happens.
Thank you for your help!
For this model you need to hold the FN button down while you press the * button. It has to be done at the same time. Fn button is second from bottom row on keyboard, first key, right above the caps key.

It sounds like the phone is locked to AT&T and you're trying to use another SIM. You'll need to unlock the device to use it with another carrier. You can buy an unlock code here: http://gsmunlocklabs.com/samsung-unlock-code/
are you doing it yourself? if so, google "wonder how to" and type in phone info on search.EBAY has the screen you need for around $8, if you also need a LCD, EBAY has them and the tool you will need for $18. good luck, hope this helps.
PERMANENT UNLOCK CODE SAMSUNG SGH T219-T329
Insert ANY unaccepted SIM card in the phone and then turn the phone on,
follow the steps in 1 to 4 below to enter all the codes. The phone will
switch itself off and then on at step 2 but do not switch off the phone
by yourself until all steps are completed. Take your time to enter the
code correctly at each step. When entering some of the zeros at steps 3
and 4 your phone may display the zero as hyphen or minus (-), dont
worry, just count when entering the zero to ensure you enter just the
right numbers of zeros. Now let's begin.
1/ Put any unaccepted SIM card in your SAMSUNG SGH T219 or T329, turn the phone on, it will display WRONG CARD
2/ Type *2767*3855# and wait for about 25 seconds for the phone to reboot all the way to the welcome screen
3/ While at the welcome screen, type *7465625*638*00000000*00000000#
4/ After completion of step 3 above then type #7465625*638*00000000#
At the end of step 4 phone will show "network lock deactivated"
Its not as easy as it used to be. You pretty much only have two options..download a special software or i suggest that you use a site such as www.unlockcentral.co.uk where you enter the iemei number and they provide you with the unlock code based on that for about $6 bucks..
alternatively, call the current provider and tell them you are going overseas to work and need them to unlock the phone, if the phone has been used for at least 6 months then most provider will do it for you for free.
