    Try removing the battery for about an hour. Maybe all the codes will erase

    I also have a juke that is locked...tried everything...last 4 digits,
    took to verizon (no help) basically they want me to buy a new phone. I
    want to try using this method of unlocking were you need the MEID hex code off the back, but there are no numbers on the back of mine. Is there another way to find these numbers...like on the box it came in?

    I have a samsung juke and changed it from nam1 to nam 2 and now I'm locked out. I've converted the hex to esn and then used the calculater and changed it to dec but the las 4 digits did not unluck my phone. I tried it several times. I really need to unlock it. Why is this so complicated?

    Please help

OK... This is a little confusing and I didn't think it up (I wrote the part about HashCalc to adapt this method to the Juke). Here it goes:

Theres a number on the back of the phone: its 14 characters long... This is a MEID Hex code. It's not in the format you need to unlock your phone; you want ESN Hex which is 8 characters long. You need HashCalc (Free Program! Google it!) to convert it to ESN.
Pre.1) Open HashCalc
1) Set the [Data Format] (Drop-down box option at the top)
2) So you enter the 14 character code in the [Data] box.
3) Then make sure the box is checked next to the [SHA-1].
4) Then click [Calculate] at the bottom of the program.
5) Take the last 6 digits of the SHA-1 code.
6) Add 80 to the front of the code.
ie. Say the code was: 9a00297d20c0ef27c7afad981abbbad417045a64
Take the last 6 characters = 045a64
Add 80 to the front = 80045a64
This is the ESN Hex code I was talking about.

Now to convert the ESN Hex to your unlock code. I didn't make this part up...
7) Open your Windows Calculator (Sorry Mac Users!).
It's in Start Menu > All Programs > Accessories > Calculator
8) Set the calculator to Scientific Mode (in the view menu).
9) Then click the circle next to Hex to change to Hex mode.
10) Make sure your Hex mode is Qword (to the right of the Hex option)
11) Enter the 80****** code you created.
12) Change from Hex to Dec without clicking [=] or any other key.
13) The Lock Code is the last 4 digits of the Dec number.

Thats it! Theres your code. It worked with my Juke!

I have a samsung reality. i was fooling around with the settings & set it to NAM2. it's now locked i need a 4 digit code. i've tried all the online suggestions nothing works. i've been up for 4 hours...


Using the default "last four digits" unlock code will not work because switching to NAM2 changes your phone number, and hence changes the default unlock code. You have to find out your new phone number (and new unlock code) under NAM2. Do this:

  • Get to the dialer screen.
  • Dial #43574357* (#helphelp*)
  • Tap "1. system info"
  • The top two entries, MIN and MDN are your new number. Usually they are invalid phone numbers (000-000-????) but the last four digits are your unlock code. Write them down or remember them.
  • Get back to the unlock screen, type in the code.
  • Go directly into the menu and change back to NAM1
  • Don't do that again. :)

Changes NAM Settings?


Here's some ideas for unlock codes, most phones use the last 4 or possibly 7 digits of the phone number, 4 or 5 - 0's or 12345.
Basically your NAM settings contain the phone number info for a carrier, and you can put two different numbers in the same phone using NAM1 and NAM2, what you have done is switch it to an empty NAM so it is asking for the rest of the programming info to set it up.If you can switch it back to NAM1 it should work again. Most phones have an option in the menu for phone settings that allows NAM switching without needing a code.

I DON'T know what is initial programming is?


initial programming occurs when your phone needs a second roaming based and if you accidentally change the NAM settings of your phone to NAM2. the default NAM settings of your phone is NAM1.

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.
hahah

Initial programming needed


Dial *228 and press send. Listen for the prompt and press 1 to program your phone. Remain on the call while your phone is programmed (could take up to 2 minutes). Do not hang up until you hear, 'Your phone has been programmed successfully."
Good luck!

Changed nam1 to nam2 on samsung sch-r410 now it wants initial programing and a key code


Well by now you probably already solved this problem. This is for future references of anyone else who come across this. The steps are easy and simple.
1st, dial #43574357*
2nd, u should be at a device info menu. select system info.
3rd, your password is the last 4 digits of your MDN number.

now u can access your phone and change back to NAM1

Cant unlock my phone


If you know your original lock code, take it in to your service provider, each code is diffrent and can only be programed manually, if you dont know your original lock code you will have to sacrific all info pics,mess,numbers, etc. by a reset... I can guide you through the steps to erase all if you lost your Unlock code, or switch back to nam1 if you know your lock code, ( when you switch back, if security is on automatic lock, password is required) intial programing code is not your Unlock code.

"initial programming needed" problem


I can not guarantee this Punksk8er but, i did the same thing with my phone by switching the battery with my mother's and I ended up with the initial programming needed sign. This is how i fixed it...


Go to...
>Menu
Select the option...
>Settings
Scroll down to...
>Phone Settings
Then Select the option...
>NAM selections
There you will see the options
>NAM1 &NAM2

Mine was on NAM2 and i switched it to NAM1.
The system restarted and the error "initial Programing needed" went away.

I am no phone expert or anything so I don't really understand how it works but i hope this helps you out dude.
