There is not. once a phone is reported lost or stolen, that gives it a "dirty" ESN. (Electronic Serial Number) These are numbers created by the FCC to uniquely identify mobile devices. The only thing you can do is send it back to the carrier. Once a phone is reported lost/stolen they are added to a strikeout database. That phone is dead to the network/s.

Insert sim card


The Samsung Instinct handset was made for Sprint network.

Sprint is a using CDMA network that don't require a sim card.
This is why you can't find anywhere to put in a Sim card.

Also if you have a Sim card I am guessing you are going to try to use the handset on a GSM network and as I said before.. The handset is for CDMA networks so it won't work.

Sorry! :(

My instinct is stuck on the dial pad and speed dial area


I had the same problem, call sprint and tell them the problem and they should exchange it for you, the problem is that the screen colapsed just enough to be touching that area of the phone. Don't go to a sprint store all they will tell you is its not under warranty and insurance should cover it. 100.00. hell no.
Its free replacement if you call sprint......

Emergency download on sprint instinct


Let the battery die completely, it should stop. If the problem persists, take your phone into the store, it needs to be repaired or replaced... also check for software updates.

ESN that sprint needs is the ESN DEC, it is an 18 digit number above a bar code under your battery directly on your phone. This is not to be confused with the HEX, which starts with an "A"

Unlock a phone


You cannot use a Samsung Instinct phone on a GSM network like AT&T. The Instinct is a CDMA phone. In the U.S. Sprint and Verizon are CDMA networks, and T-Mobile and AT&T are GSM networks. Phones made for one network type are not usable on another network type.
