I lost my phone last night and when i was given it today by a friend, i turned it on and it is now asking for a phone lock code, which i don't remember ever using. the generic "0000" and "1234" don't seem to be working. would greatly appreciate your help.
I seem to be unable to locate the IMEI on the back of the phone

Keep inputting codes into the phone until it asks for a PUK code, if it doesnt already.
Now call up your carriers help number and ask for the PUK code (you'll probably need to know the phones number, also have you paper and a writing utensil out)
Then enter the codes you were given and it will reset the security code and you can get into the phone without a pin code.
Good luck invading her privacy!! ;)
The default lock/unlock code for samsung is usually the last four digits of your cell number, if she changed the code and forgot it you might have to call your service provider to see if they can reset it for you.
When it asks you for the code, and it's talking about the phone being locked and you havent yet switched the phone over to your phone number, then enter the last 4 digits of your friends phone number. If you've already switched it, enter in the last 4 digits of your phone number.
If it's asking for another code, I'd just call Verizon...they have help for switching to a new phone/activating a new phone that should help you out.
The subsidy lock is only given by your phone company provider therefore if you don't enter it correctly it locks the phone. This code is given by motorola only to the cell phone companies so if for example you have a tmobile sim you would call tmobile and tell them that your phone is asking for the subsidy lock code.
U jsu do one thing ..just give five times faulse code. Once u did that it will automatically ask for Puk code which you can easily get from ur service provider,give that code ur phone will be unlocked.
