How do i unlock the samsung sch-a850? I put in the code and it said the lock is disabled but that didn't solve the problem. I still have the message icon with the little handcuffs in front of it

I can help you out with this phone, but do you mean unlock the phone to be able to use it with a different provider or just unlock the phone so you can dial out on it? After it says code is disabled is there anything you can do on the phone like browse through menus?

Thanks

Tim

    Ok that is definitely not related to anything on your phone, it is definitely unlocked as far as the hardware is concerned. Try powering off the phone all the way when it's off take out the battery. Let it sit like that for a good 45 seconds, plug it back in. Try powering up and sending / receiving a text message. If it still doesnt work and you can make and receive calls then it is your service provider causing the issue. From time to time it will lose track of package information, just give the service provider (AT&T, Verizon, whoever) and have them resend the programming info to your phone, tell them the problem you are having. Definitely call from a separate phone so you can reprogram anything they need you to.

    It's definitely not a phone lock issue.

    Give that a try, hope this helps!

Thanks for visiting FixYa!

You'll need to contact your cellular service provider to obtain a master unlock code for the phone. No other unlock code will work.

My lock code keeps changing by its self


the default is always one of these code try them all the last four digits of the phonenumber last programmed in the phone aka your number or 9999,1234,4321,0000,1111 if none of those work you can go the retail store for a flash they hook it to the computer and push software to the phone to correct the issue it takes five mins and its free its a common issue for them to correct if you change your lock code from the default in the future always set up a dummy contact with it in there so that you can easily look it up also please vote for me I'm trying to work my way up to expert level and I cant without your vote please
