Question about Cell Phones

1 Answer

I have a Samsung A551 which my daughter set a Sim Lock on and has now forgotten the password! I have rung Samsung and they say I must send it to a Service Centre to be unlocked for a fee of $40. Is this the only way?

No that is not the only way. If you still have the SIM pack that came with the SIM card, there's a card that contains PUK1 and PUK2. These PUK codes are the unlocking codes for your SIM.

Now if you do not have that SIM pack anymore, there are lots of cell phone repair shops that offers unlocking of SIM for a reasonable price. I think $40 is too much for unlocking the SIM.

Have a great day!

Try a hard reset: Enter *2767*3855#

You'll probably lose everything on your phone, if nothing was backed up to your SIM card.
