alot of guys that sell "unlocked " phones sell a regular network-specific phone but they'll include a universal unlock wafer-thin sim that fits in your phone between your sim card and the phone contacts. Look in the box ..if you still got it look for a plastic sd card sized container and see if there's one with you phone... if not you can get one on ebay for about ten bucks..
let me know what happens... KEN

SOURCE: samsung galaxy android unlock..cannot unlock my

Hi, I have a couple of idea for you to try.
1) Log in to your google account on your pc, the same account you registered for your phone

2) After logging in look at the top right corner of your inbox/email page, it would say your google username. Like say if you name is John, and you have a google id thats registered to your galaxy s as , john123@gmail.com. Now this google id on the top right corner of the page would be displayed as john123@googlemail.com

3) Type in the google id, thats visible on the right hand top corner of your page (like john123@googlemail.com) into your galaxy s handset locked page, and type in the password.

TADA AND YOUR ON TO THE NEW SCREEN TELLING YOU TO PUT IN ANOTHER PATTERN.

or theres this one:
Take out the battery, the sim card, and the SD card leave the phone for 2 to 3 hours like that.. Put everything back in and boot up the phone.. This should work.
You could try this instead of waiting 3 hours, just remove battery and press power on switch for 20 seconds but this may not work.

or if you've tried everything, the only other way would be to take it to a Samsung mobile phone shop.
or do a factory reset:
THIS WILL ERASE ALL YOUR DATA THOUGH
Go into recovery mode - vol up & home & power. Once in the menu, select factory reset.It may take you a couple of attempts to get to the recovery mode but it does work, just keep trying.

Regards
Mike

Jailbreaking in IOS is rooting in Android. You root the Precedent (gain access to the root login) by using rtto at http://codegeekbbs.com/samsung.php Just follow the directions you'll find in the file. Just read the Readme.txt file.

Unlocking is making the phone run on other carriers' towers - and you can't do that with a CDMA phone without pretty much rebuilding the phone. (CDMA phones don't have SIM cards, only GSM phones do - the technology is different.)

Samsung galaxy s6 g-sm920v imei repair


Samsung Galaxy s6 GSM 920v: IMEI Blacklisted Verizon:

Hello. You can't do anything about the IMEI being Blacklisted from Verizon. That phone is deemed stolen. You bought stolen goods

You could report the Seller to your local police to tell them that you were tricked into buying stolen property.

The only thing you can do with this phone is use it with another cellular provider SIM card. Most Verizon Samsung Galaxy Android phones are already Factory unlocked. You won't be able to get perfect reception on other carriers but you can use it with AT&T or T-Mobile's SIM cards. No Verizon or Sprint though.

How do I get my new straight talk imei number for my phone that has already previously been transferred to straight talk


There can be only one IMEI on the phone, and it is "permanently" attached to your phone, typically on an adhesive label underneath the battery, or if it is a smartphone, it is easily located by going to your phone's settings>general>about (for example, on Apple's iOS), and similarly on Android and other types of OS. It is a permanent part of your phone's identity, absolutely unrelated to the phone number assigned to the device.

No imei in my samsung galaxy s


Samsung Galaxy S: How to retrieve IMEI#:

Yes you can retrieve your IMEI #.. Here's several ways of doing it:

(1) The easiest way, on the phone call dial pad enter:
*#06#

(2) If you had cellular service on that device. Call your Service Provider for your IMEI #. They will have this available in their own records.

(3) If the phone was not activated on a cellular service yet, contact the Seller who sold it to you.. Many Sellers write down the IMEI # for their records.

(4) It could be on a label on the original box it came in..

(5) The other way to retrieve the IMEI # of that cell phone is to check your Google Account.. As long as you had set up your Google/Gmail account on your phone.

Here's how to do it:
On a computer internet browser, go to:
http://google.com/settings

Sign-in to your Google account and then select the "Expand All" tab which will list all your devices connected to your Google account and all of their IMEI #'s

Flashing an at&t lg to straight talk service


You can Not do either.

You can't change an imei. and straighttalk will not allow another carriers phone to be used on their services.

Straight talk only uses versions towers. The rest of the company is Tracfone. Tracfone doesn't play well with othere
