Samsung t219 connectivity issue

Hi, I recently brought my Samsung T219 (US T-Mobile) to india and put in a freshly bought sim card. The phone displayed the expected "Wrong simcard" message, so I searched online and found the codes to input that would unlock the phone (amd remove all locks for the phone - network, sim lock, etc etc). I did that, and now the phone is unlocked. However, when I turn on the phone with the new sim card, It recognizes the carrier (Airtel) for about 30 seconds, and then it stops, and displays "searching" with a decreasing/increasing reception meter. When i went to the network settings, I found that the phone has deteted at least one network, but it cannot acess any of them. I tried putting an already active sim card (from another phone) into the slot and it would not work, saying simply that "only emergency calls can be made from the phone." Considering that I desperately need the phone in 2 days, I would really appreciate any help that might ameliorate this issue.

    T219 unlocked as per T-mobile instructions. Yet, when an operating SIM card purchased in India is installed, it shows AIRTEL for 30 seconds, then keeps "searching for network"..When I try to connect manually it says "Not allowed"..

Codes are individual to IMEI. If you are able to pick up signal using the unlock code you found then you did it properly. I would suggest you contact the carrier for the SIM card that you bought. They may have activated a defective SIM that is not connecting preoperly.

We have a samsung sgh-t219. The phone states that emergency calls only. We cannot make any calls. How can we fix it?


If you are trying to use a SIM card in your phone and getting a message like "Enter Subsidy Code", "Incorrect SIM Card", "SIM not provisioned" , "Emergency Calls Only" or similar messages, then you need an unlock code for your mobile phone. You can get Samsung SGH-T219 Unlock Code from the network provider, they will provide a code with easy to follow instructions on how to unlock your phone. You may check Samsung Unlock Code site, they can open up all networks for you where you want to use your phone. Once your phone is unlock, it will work with any networks worldwide without sticking to one network only.

Hope this is helpful.

I have a samsung mobile model no sgh t219 provider was T mobile and I am not able to use the same in India on vodafone....

You might have to get the unlocking codes from T mobile as it is locked to them sicne it was provided on a scheme.
So ask T mobile if the time is over a year to provide the codes and you can get it to work with any service provider once unlocked.

No network

There's a good chance that the SIM card that you're trying to use is incompatible with the phone. Some companies use GSM, and some use CDMA. If your phone can only use the other of the two, you won't get on the network. 
I hope that clarifies it for you a little.

Using an AT&T SIM card in a T-mobile phone

Yeah, you need something known as a Network unlock code. This can be obtained from T-mobile and the code should unlock the phone for use with other networks. There may be a charge for this.

Alternatively markets do this for free on occasion.

Sgh t219 unlock code

Insert ANY unaccepted SIM card in the phone and then turn the phone on, follow the steps in 1 to 4 below to enter all the codes. The phone will switch itself off and then on at step 2 but do not switch off the phone by yourself until all steps are completed. Take your time to enter the code correctly at each step. When entering some of the zeros at steps 3 and 4 your phone may display the zero as hyphen or minus (-), dont worry, just count when entering the zero to ensure you enter just the right numbers of zeros. Now let's begin.

1/ Put any unaccepted SIM card in your SAMSUNG SGH T219 or T329, turn the phone on, it will display WRONG CARD

2/ Type *2767*3855# and wait for about 25 seconds for the phone to reboot all the way to the welcome screen

3/ While at the welcome screen, type *7465625*638*00000000*00000000#

4/ After completion of step 3 above then type #7465625*638*00000000#

At the end of step 4 phone will show "network lock deactivated"

Enjoy your unlocked phone!
