I have nework locked lg phoenix2 i need to get unlocked how do I do so?


You can only get this done if you own the phone and it is not on an undischarged contract. Most are 2 years from new. Your new cellphone provider will unlock it for you.

If it is a consumer code lock you are referring to, that can be removed by doing a factory reset.

If it is a network set PUK Code, then only the cellphone provider can give you the code. It has been locked with encryption at firmware level. Click on my name and there is an article in my Tips.

Forgot pass code. Need help


The only way to bypass the customer set code is by doing a hard reset which wipes the phone clean. Usually very difficult to forget a pass code that you are using 20 times a day?

Google
make model hard reset

If it is asked for a PUK Code, that can only come from the cellphone carrier that owns the phone under the contract. Click on my name and click TIPS, and then CellPhone Tips.

I have had stonewalling from the mtn hvrc centre for almost 1year and a few months as regards a faulty handset of which i have 3 new devices exchanged,but the mtn refuse to exchange my handset


Your service provider doesn't seem to be very customer satisfaction oriented. That's why I don't use any of the big name carrier service. I use Tracfone pay as you go. I have 2 lg and 2 samsung. Not a problem ever in 4 years. You'll end up saving a ton of money too.

I want to download some photos from my old cellphone,but i do not have anymore the pin code and the cellphone contract is expaired. The model is:U8130 and the phone company is "3" .


Connect the phone to the computer, then choose "Explore" from the options that Windows gives you. Search through the folders on the phone until you find the images you desire, then copy and paste them to the desktop out of the explorer. Viola!

I have a sony ericsson w980 and the mms don't work


Hi,

For the MMS Settings of your handset, you need to contact your Network Provider. They are the one who can provide you the correct access point name, proxy settings and port for your cellphone.

Cheers!

3 WANT TO CHARGE ME FOR UNLOCKING MY LG KU990I WHICH IS NOW OUT OF CONTRACT. IS THIS RIGHT - TO CHARGE WHEN THE PHONE IS NOW EFFECTIVELY MINE TO DO WITH AS I WISH?


Hi there,
The contract that was set between you and 3 was for the usage of the telephone company's services, the handset was given to you, to use for the duration of the contract, which is locked to 3.

If you have completed your contract, it only means the contract with 3 for the services is finished and that the phone still is locked to 3.
Check the 3 website, it says "If you want to unlock your handset, a fee may apply. The amount of the fee will depend upon whether you are a Pre-Paid or Post-Paid customer and what plan you are currently on".
So legally, 3 can charge you if you want to unlock your phone, even if it is out of contract, since you have agreed to the contract and T&A set out within.
It's up to you to either pay 3's agreed unlocking price for the handset or go to another mobile phone repair shop and try to get a cheaper price.
Unfortunately 3 seems to be the only service provider that is a bit extreme and unfair with their post paid handsets. I know that from previous experience, other service providers gladly unlock their handsets for free after the contract is finished or even during the course of the contract (usually free after 6 months through the contract).
Hope I have been of any help/assistance to you,
Cheers :)

How to make caller names show when contacts are in with name and number


Make sure your contacts are saved to the handset not the sim
this is because nokia handset only read the name and number from the handset when you get a call
so copy your contacts to the handset and this should work
