If you're referring to the phone unlock code that you have to enter to get into the phone, the only way to get around a forgotten code is to reset the phone to factory settings.

To do this, type ##786, and then select "ok".

My daughter has service with verizon, she has a Samsung Glyde, while messing with buttons, she got into the NAM 2 and locked herself out of the phone. I cannot figure out a lock code. I've tried the last 4...


The best advice is to contact Verizon or bring the phone to a Verizon service center. I think that trying to work with the phone or using a service to unlock the code may lead to loss of info in the phone.

Hope this helps.

My verizon phone is locked i need to know how to unlock it


the truth is that you cannot unlock the phone for free.

There is a free site you can try out first but it is for soft
unlock not hard unlock.You can use this link for the soft unlock,
then trying out that with this site,
you will now try out the hard unlock with the site below
Note:hard unlock is not free,You will be charged to get your unlock code.
The only way by which you can get the unlock code for free is by calling your service provider
and requesting for your unlock code.
If you service provider refuses to give it to you, then there is no other place where you can
get a free unlock code.
Visit the link below if you are interested in buying the unlock code:

Good luck.

Phone is locked,i don,t know the code to unlock it. my thescreen shis verizon wireless,several years old, my screen shows the word locked,what do i do?

you can take the phone into any verizon wireless store...

if the associates were knowledgeable inside that store they would be able to hook it up to the PST machine and find out the lock code for you

however, good luck trying to find a knowledgeable VZW associate

Forgot my lock and unlock password

unfortunately, once the lock code has been changed, there is no record of it on customer services end. you can TRY
-if ur phone will let you dial *228 and choose option 1 to reprogram ur phone, it can reprogram the unlock code, too, but that rarely works since very rarely will it let you press "1" since it is locked.
-OR you can try to flash the software. just take it to any vzw store and they can flash at no charge, but it can erase ur memory, so only try that if u know u have ur contacts and pics backed up, and even then it does not always work

if all else fails, u can contact the manufacturer, send it to them (like prev poster said, keep ur tracking number) but it may take 6 weeks to get the phone back. if you have insurance on the phone, ur best bet would just be to pay the 50 bucks to get a replacement, if all else fails.
