I also have a samsung phone. A stop sign usually means one of two things. Either you have a bad sim card, (or it's been shut off by your carrier), or your radio is turned off. For the first, you will need to replace your sim card. To test this, just find a friend with the same carrier as you and change the sim cards out briefly. If nothing changes, then your radio may be off. To fix this, go to menu, settings, Phone settings, Airplace mode. Make sure this is off, not on. If it is off, and you still have the problem, goto Menu, Settings, Reset Settings. That should clear it up.

I need subsidy password for my motorola,E1070.please help me.IMEI:356853002896431.my email: smither1987@live.co.uk


Hi there. When your phone would ask for a subsidy code, you would need an IMEI unlock code to fix the problem. To get the codes, you may access a MOTOROLA UNLOCK CODE website for your Motorola e1070 unlock code.thanks

SGH-A167 SAMSUNG - subsidy unlock code needed


call your carrier. (at&t, verizon etc.) give them your imei number. you can find it under your phone battery on a sticker. it is 15 numbers long. call your carrier and give this code to a mobile customer care representative and they should give you a 8 digit subsidy unlock code. Then once you get your subsidy code power your phone off take the battery out along with the sim card, replace the battery but leave the sim card out and power the phone back on, then when it gets to the menu screen punch in #7465625*638* and after that last star put in the 8 digit subsidy code your carrier gave you and your phone should say network lock deactivated. hope this helps.

Motorolla sliver asking for subsidy password


Justification for use of Subsidy PasswordThe term "subsidy" refers to the subsidization of cell phones sold to customers that purchase mobile phones as part of a contract with the mobile service operator. Many network operators provide these subsidies as an incentive for users to sign extended contracts, and use the subsidy lock as a means of protecting their investment. The installation of such locks means that users often are forced to purchase a different phone if they decide to switch their network (of advantage to both the OEM manufacturer and cellular service provider).
CDMA cellular providers that use SUBSIDY locks on their handsets:
Ntelos, Cricket, Sprint, Quest, US Cellular & SureWest. (Not a complete list)
GSM: (SIM LOCK) T-Mobile Cingular AT&T
Alltel or Verizon Wireless do not use any type of subsidy locks on their CDMA phones. Default Code:000000 or 123456 or 654321
Prepaid cellphones from Alltel & Verizon Wireless come locked from the store, but Verizon Wireless prepaid cellphones can be unlocked with a call to Verizon.
Link for more information about the "subsidy lock" [1]

[edit]Unlocking services and softwareAs a result of the lack of open access to the Subsidy Password database, a number of online services have grown around providing alternative unlocking software. The methods used to unlock cell phones varies although most involve reading the code from the phone and resetting it.
Network carriers some times unlock their customer's phones. The practice is not different from that when a user unlocks his own phone. While one could consider that the DMCA brings the legality of such applications under question, recent legal cases such as Lexmark Int'l v. Static Control Components have confirmed that the use of software to reprogram such phones is not illegal. This is particularly true since unlocking applications increase compatibility with alternative networks, promote positive competition and allow customers greater freedom to use the phones that they own.
There are no prohibitions to unlocking in the United Kingdom.

Free unlocking or subsidy code for mobile phones


When you place a new or a existing SIM card from another phone provider into your mobile phone and it asks for a Security code then :-
This phone is locked to the original mobile phone provider. You need to contact this mobile provider to ask for the unlock code (security code) for this phone. You need to provide proof of ownership etc and the phone's unique IMEI number which is located inside the phone under the battery. They use this number to generate the unlock code for your phone.
They should provide you with instructions on how to enter this code into the phone.
Once you unlock the phone, then you can insert a new SIM card in this phone or sign up with another phone provider using this phone.

You could ring the phone provider and ask for the unlock security code because you are going overseas and wish to use your phone with a prepaid SIM card from another country. This maybe a free service.
The other way to get your phone unlock is to use a phone unlocking company on the Internet, they usually charge a couple of Dollars for their services. Use Google and search for "Security unlocking code” companies in your area.
