SOURCE: phone freeze unlock code

If you have entered the wrong unlock code too many times, your phone will lock up.  Call AT&T for further directions.

If you open it up, check the SIM card. Just below the word SIM CARD, are some letters like:
If the last two are not C4 - you probably have a T-Mobile SIM CARD.
I'm not an expert, but the blog stated if you (dread) call Customer support, have patience, ask them to send you an AT&T SIM card.
Look up Pbushx2's WebLog. He is a Tracfone tech and explains why some phones have this problem. Since I have this same phone, just got it today, and it does have the wrong SIM CARD in it. I'm going to do what he suggests. I found this info reading the responses to his blog, under TUCKER.
Hope this helps.

I bought a virgin mobile top up card for $15.00. How do I activate my existing virgin phone?

If you allowed the phone to "expire", then contact customer service and they will reactivate your number and even add in the $15 worth of minutes to your account for you.

I already have a phone number. I also have an active account that should be about ready to expire. I simply want to renew it so that I can keep my phone active to make and receive calls Help!

Hi Ronald,

All cell carriers that I've ever heard of are happy to keep you under contract - you just have to contact them to let them know at the end of the contract - if yours is not the type that automatically converts you to a "month to month" customer (no contract). This is not necessarily a bad thing! In most cases, you can keep using the device & service under the terms of your old contract. Things (cost, amount of talk / text / data) generally change only when you sign up as per the terms of a *new* agreement. This also when you are offered a subsidized price for a new device. If you're happy with your current device and would rather not have to go out of pocket at all to buy another - or if the amount of talk / text / data is is better under your existing plan - why sign up again? Continue as a month to month customer and you're free to sign a contract with them (or anyone else for that matter) at a time that YOU want whether due to lost or stolen device, better terms in a new contract being offered, etc..

Many carriers answer calls made from the cell phone that are placed to *611 (Star 6 1 1) and they should be able to help you navigate your current contract and new one - if needed. Otherwise, check your carrier's invoice, refill minutes card or website for contact telephone numbers or locations to learn about your contract.

Good luck!

Samsung gte1080i i try and put in my virgin sim and it comes up with network lock please help

Thanks for visiting FixYa!

Virgin Mobile phones contain Propriatory software. This means that Virgin mobile SIM cards will only work in Virgin Mobile phones. If your Samsung GTE 1080i was not sold by Virgin Mobile your Virgin mobile SIM card will not work in it.

If your phone was sold by Virgin Mobile, contact Virgin Mobile (in the USA)
at 1-888-322-1122 and request assistance.

How to reach a live person: Press 0 as soon as you hear "Alex", and keep pressing 0 for each request made for more information.

Here is another number you can also try:

Phone: 877-602-4907
How to reach a live person: Believe it or not, this number rings through to a live customer service rep. It sometimes rings quite a few times, but be patient and someone will pick up.

Hi' what is carrier and how can i ring them??

hello lilianritchi,
a carrier is your service provider for mobile phones (examples are virgin mobile, at&t, t mobile, verizon, sprint, cricket, etisalat and etc...) if you don't know your provider/carrier, you can find out by looking at the screen of your phone, the name of the provider is either at the center of the screen, at the top left or right near the notifications tool bar, at the bottom (depending on your settings)
once you already know your carrier, here are your options on how to contact them:
1. if you have a sim card, the customer service number of your service provider is usually saved there and you call/dial that number using your handyphone or landline.
2. or here are some customer service numbers for you: at&t: 1-800-331-0500 or 611 from your wireless phone sprint: Call *2 (from your sprint mobile phone) or 888-211-4727 (Sprint phones) or 800-639-6111 (Nextel phones) t-mobile: Get in touch, free of charge: Just dial 611 from your T-Mobile phone or call 1-877-453-1304. Customer Care representatives are available from 3 a.m. to 10p.m. PT, daily. Automated account help is available 24 hours a day, 7 days a week virgin mobile: 1-888-322-1122 or 789 using your virgin wireless phone
if your carrier's number is not indicated on the list i provided above, inform me your carrier and i will look for their customer service number
thank you

When i insert a virgin sim card in a virgin network phone it does not work!

Thanks for visiting FixYa!

Virgin Mobile uses proprietary software in it's phones. As such, (depending on the phone) a SIM card already activated for one Virgin Mobile phone may not work in another (different) Virgin Mobile phone - even if it is the exact make and model.

You may need to contact Virgin Mobile Customer service to request a new phone added to your account - and they may need to provide you with a new SIM card. They'll be able to let you know what you'll need to do depending on which phone you want to use on your account.
