Re: unlock codes

Here are set of code that you can apply and play with. You should have included the model of your cellphone but i'm hoping that this would help.

Code to lock keys. Press together *7
Note: [] (pause) means the * key held in until box appears.
Select phone line - (use this to write things below the provider name):
[] [] [] 0 0 8 [] 1 []
Add phonebook to main menu:
[] [] [] 1 0 5 [] 1 []
Add messages to main menu:
[] [] [] 1 0 7 [] 1 []
Copy SIM memory (phonebook menu):
[] [] [] 1 0 8 [] 1 []
Eng Field options (main menu):
[] [] [] 1 1 3 [] 1 []
Slow (Frequency of search menu):
[] [] [] 1 0 1 [] 1 []
Medium (Frequency of search menu):
[] [] [] 1 0 2 [] 1 []
Fast (Frequency of search menu):
[] [] [] 1 0 3 [] 1 []
Enable EFR:
[] [] [] 1 1 9 [] 1 []
Function :
[] [] [] # # # [] 1 []
Change pin:
[] [] [] 0 0 4 [] 1 []
Unblocking using the "puk" number:
[] [] [] 0 0 5 [] 1 []
There are lots of similar codes exist. If you change the last number to 0 you can deactive that code. The 3 digit number at the middle are from 0 to 999. I put the most interesting codes. (EFR):Enhanced Full Rate Codec.
You can change GSM frequencies to 900/1800 by entering the enginnering model. Following the below steps:
enter menu and press 048263* quickly, then you will enter the secret engineering menu
under "Opcode"
input 10*0*3 for GSM 900
10*0*4 for GSM 1800
10*0*5 for GSM 1900
10*0*6 for dual band GSM 900/1800
10*0*7 for dual band GSM 850/1900
To add extra message space 4 your Motorola C350 C450 C550 or C650, press menu button, press 048263* quickly, then on the popup menu enter 47 press 50 and 1 64 1 186 and ok.You will receive an extra 50 msgs memory space.Switch phone off and back on.(not tested)

I own an i730 Motorola. Bought it a few years ago when I was with Southern Linc. I have never used it for anything other than the walkie-talkie. My Nextel i710 Motorola transmit button stopped working...

Hi, Welcome to FixYa

This document is also available in PDF format (this PDF has higher qualify images and a password and is not free. It requires purchase, with your purchase, you will receive the HEX file for Raptor Pro that's mentioned in this web page) for easier viewing and printing.

RSS Carrier + iDENPro
Phone Power: On
i-DEN phones are made by Motorola. They use SIM cards and look like GSM phones, but they are not GSM. The most popular iDEN network in the US is Nextel (now with Sprint) and Boost (owned by Nextel)
For most i-Den phones, use the RSS Carrier to put the phone RSS-SIM mode. Then use iDEN Pro.
It is recommended that you use the USB cable for Motorola iDEN phone when using RSS carrier and iDEN pro. Pay attention, the iDEN cable is very similar to the Motorola V600 cable, but a bit wider. So be careful not to confuse them.

RSS Carrier is useful for reading either the six-digit or four-digit phone or user security code. However, the actual unlocking of the Service Provider lock is done with iDEN Pro software.
Once you connected the phone, some times it will prompt you to install the driver, just follow the instruction and install it automatically. If it does not work, try to manually install the driver from the directory, which the Motorola RSS is located.
Assuming the driver has been successfully installed already. You should open the RSS Carrier software, click on File and Read Phone. This should put the phone into RSS-SIM mode.
Now you can exit RSS. Open the iDEN Pro software, and wait for it to detect the phone. Then click on Script | Open Script. Open a file under the iDEN Pro directory called “command3.txt” and then go to Script | Run Script. The phone should restart after the script is finished. Now test with a different SIM card.
Raptor Pro For a long time, Raptor Pro was not updated and stopped supporting any phones newer than the i405. However, recently the Raptor Pro’s hex file has been updated to support almost all i-DEN phones on the market. To unlock, i-DEN i880, i885, Raptor Pro (keep in mind the Hex File can be found under C:\Program Files\Raptor Pro\Hex File) has to be updated to support this type of phone. Make sure a SIM card is insider the phone and the phone should be on and ask for a special subsidy code. Then you should connect the phone using serial cable on COM1 and run Raptor Pro. It will take few minutes and give you the unlock code. It should be the first one. After getting your unlock code, try to put it into your phone with a different SIM.

Tip Some times when a person insert a different SIM and has entered the incorrect unlock code more than few times, the phone will show “Enter Special Code, Please Wait” or “Contact Service Provider”. In this case, you need to wait up to one hour for the phone to allow you to enter the unlock code again.

I set my puk number on because i though that was just a code to enter my phone.Later when i turn my phone on it say to enter the puk pin and i everything but nothing works.Please help me!Please!Before my...

A request for a PUK code ("Personal Unlocking Key") will appear on your phone if your SIM card PIN code is entered 3 consecutive times incorrectly.

Your SIM card will then become "PUKed" or Blocked. This is a security measure to protect your service.

You need to call the Customer Service department of your cell phone provider and they will give you the PUK code which will unblock your SIM card.

Should i contact t-mobile in nyc or the service provider here in bejiing to figure out subsidary password to enable bejiing sim to work in usa phone

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.

I have a motorola that is asking me for a subsidy password? how can i fix this problem?

To get rid of that message you need to take the following steps.

  1. Obtain a Subsidy Password, also know as an IMEI unlock code. The Motorola subsidy password is an 8 digit code that unlocks your phone for use with other cellular providers. Search Google for Motorola Unlock Codes for a list of retailers. Codes are usually provided within 48 hours, and cost around $30.
  2. *Most providers will not issue the unlock code after your account has been inactive for more that 90 days. They says it is because your account info goes into a "read only" status, and they cannot retrieve the number any longer.*
  3. Enter the IMEI code into the phone. To enter the IMEI code into the phone, all you need to do is insert a SIM card from a different network to the one that your phone is locked to. This will prompt the phone to display "enter subsidy password". Just enter the 8 digit code, and your Motorola phone is unlocked.

I need a subsidy code

To unlock this phone yourself you can download GOT (, purchase a day or month's worth of access to the GOT server, hook up the phone to the computer through the USB cable and unlock it using the software. This is relatively inexpensive and has the added advantage of being fun to do + the "I unlocked my cell phone myself" vibe that goes with it.

Alternatively, with the information above, if you are a T-Mobile subscriber for more than 45 days you can request the subsidy code and they will provide it for free. If you have a good friend who is a T-Mobile subscriber have them use the phone for a day or so and then request the code.

Finally, there is the go on eBay and purchase a subsidy code for your phone solution. I've not had to purchase unlock codes for T-Mobile so I can not make any suggestions for a relaible source as I could for unlock codes for AT&T.

A hardware solution to the subsidy problem is the x-sim type device which slips between the SIM contacts and the SIM and convinces the phone you have the correct SIM in place.

Some phones, not yours, are unlockable by entering a series of set codes that are the same for all units of that model. The Samsung Katalyst for example. Your model has a unique and random code assigned to each unit.

I hope some of this helps you to remove the code. If you require aditional information please ask.
