Unlocking a X497 Samsung cell phone

I am attempting to unlock my x497. I was sent a code by ATT but it is not working. I do not want to lock it forever, so I stopped trying.
The phone's IMEI is 357272 00 718766 3 03. I was also given a procedure, being entering #7465625*638*code# Is this correct? Can you find the correct code? I also noticed that the IMEI number under the battery did not have the last two digits that display on the screen when I use #*6# to get the number. I do not know if that would have affected the code number ATT ended up sending. Hope you can help.

Need an unlocking code for Samsung SGH-X497

Type *#9998*627837793# Go to the 'my parameters' and there you will find new menu where you can unlock phone.(not tested-for samsung C100)
To unlock a Samsung turn the phone off take the sim card and type the following code *#pw+15853649247w# .
Java status code: #*53696# (Samsung X600)
If you want to unlock your phone put a sim from another company then type *#9998*3323# it will reset your phone. Push exit and then push 7, it will reset again. Put your other sim in and it will say sim lock, type in 00000000 then it should be unlocked. Type in *0141# then the green call batton and it's unlocked to all networks. This code may not work on the older phones and some of the newer phones. If it doesn't work you will have to reset your phone without a sim in it by typing *#2767*2878# or *#9998*3855# (not tested)

How to unlock my samsung SGH-T209

I managed to make the following work for my Samsung SGH-T209 locked to the T-Mobile network. Credit goes to toolnut43 (

Posted as follows:
Try this

1. Insert other providers sim
2. *2767*3855# wait for your phone to reboot(restart)
3. *7465625*638*00000000*00000000# (this changes network lock w/password 00000000)
4. #7465625*638*00000000# (this deactivates network lock w/00000000)
5. *#7465625# to check all locks
If all are inactive, then you are good to go.
u can unlock x495.x497.x660.t509.t809 and latest, plus of course T-209.
