Trying to re-program Samsung M520 CDMA

I want to get into the manual programing screens to change information from Sprint to Alltel. The MEID HEX is A100000005448D8. I tried to use ##000000# but I don't know how to get into the programming menu. When I input the ##000000# I don't know what button to push to get to menu. Any step by step info or a website to go to would be a good start. TIA

hard to say much about that, cause most phones do that after hours of use but you should take the phone into a mobile shop and have then check the phone for you or test the battery to see if th battery is the faulty.

Is an MIED number and IMEI number the same thing?


They are different technologies, but for the same thing.
Short answer:



MEI (International Mobile Equipment Identity) are numbers unique to every GSM and UMTS mobile phone used to identiry valid devices. IMEI are 15 digits long. (AT&T, T-Mobile)


MEID (Mobile Equipment Identifiers) are unique numbers found on CDMA mobile phones. MEID are 15 alpha-numeric digits long followed by six zeros and a serial number. (Verizon, Sprint, MetroPCS)


Hope that help,

I am with Sprint and I was given a Blackberry Curve from AT&T. Can I unlock it from AT&T so I can use it on Sprint?


no.....AT&T uses GSM and Sprint uses CDMA service.......although sprint doesnt require a sim card, that device does in order to work on a network. Now i don't like to say that anything is impossible, but you would need professional equipment and/or software to program a sim card to trick the device into thinking it is CDMA. Even if you where able to set this device up as CDMA you would have to contact Sprint to have them enter the HEX/DEC into there system to be recognized......so all this was to say NO ATT and Sprint cannot interchange devices due to their fundamental hardware differences. That device can be unlocked though to be used on other GSM services however like T-Mobile / Cellular One and other local providers in your area. GOOD LUCK AND PLEASE RATE THIS POST!!!!
P.S. i would recommend finding someone who has switched from sprint to ATT that had a nice Sprint phone to trade with......be cautious and call sprint customer service to verify that the ESN is clear. If there is a hold on the ESN it is rendered useless on the Sprint Network until the acct attached to that device is paid in full......

I don't see a IMEI # under battery and # 06 # doesn't work


This phone is a CDMA phone if you don't see an IMEI #. IMEI numbers are only for GSM services (phones that take a SIM Card).

GSM cellular companies include T-Mobile & AT&T. CDMA companies include Alltel (now Verizon Wireless), Sprint (includes iDEN network features as well) and Boost Mobile (another company that uses CDMA technologies).

And as far as the other number, it's more than likely an MEID number (basically a hex that probably begins with an "A" followed by a series of alpha numerics.)

Hope this helps!

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!
