"No Service" on Samsung G600

Good Morning,

Last week I bought a Samsung G600 on ebay (Bad idea I know!) I am based in Ireland and the phone came from the UK. When I charged the phone and inserted my sim, it came up with my network showed a strong signal and a minute or two later dropped out of service. It will go in and out of service but mainly say "No Service" on the screen. I brought it to a phone shop over here and they said there might be an issue with the software, or the antenna but they do not have the software here to check. Is there anything I can do to fix this issue??!

Re: "No Service" on Samsung G600

Sounds like it could be blacklisted [registered lost/stolen]. This was done to my phone by t-mobile when i am not even their customer and was VVV difficult to undo. You can find out if its blacklisted by getting a phone shop to check it against the national blacklist. Vodaphone [my provider] entered the imei number [barcode below battery] into their system and can tell you if it is or not.

If it is blacklisted then only the provider that blacklisted it can "unblacklist" which they will be unlikely to do if you can't prove you bought the phone from them. Unfortunately there is a scam going round on ebay where a seller sells their mobile phone then rings the provider they bought it from originally and reports it lost/stolen and has it blacklisted. Hope this isn't the case here!

Note: Blacklisting is only applicable to uk network providers so if it is blacklisted you could sell it on ebay advertised as blacklisted in uk to an international bidder.

Good Morning.

You either can ask Verizon Customer Service to request it from Samsung for free but it may take a couple days, or you can buy the unlock code. Usually people will sell the service of unlocking phones on Ebay. I've never bought it, but I would guess it would take some a day or two just like asking Verizon to get it.

Need samsung g600 unlocking code

I have just tried it with my new locked to orange g600 and it works fine on all networks.

1-Turn on the phone without sim card .
2-Pull off the battery cover and insert any non-accepted sim card (without turning off the handset)
3-Do full reset *2767*3855# , phone will reboot and goes to Menu .
4-Customize Sp-lock code *7465625*638*00000000*00000000#
5-Unlock your phone with new SP code #7465625*638*00000000#
6-Enjoy G600 unlocked

if it doesn't work after step 3.. try changing the 'non-accepted' sim card that ur putting in..
eg if you are locked to vodafone and you try this method and use an orange sim card and it doesn't work, try using a o2 sim or even virgin :)
its easy good luck
