There is no way around this in most cases, but in order to have any chance to unlock need this info, is this a password it asks for? have u called Verizon and given them the ESN/electronic serial number to see if the phone is stolen, if it is you can't use it, get your money back,because it has been locked out by the cell phone provider.
what is make and model of phone, do u mind a hard rest if avail? this erases all data.

How to unlock samsung galaxy s3 r530u with us cellular network


Take it to your local cellphone hacker guru shop. That teenager can make it do it if it can be done. Don't go to verizon or at&t store, go to the place that looks like a pawn shop.

I bought an LG GW300 from the pawn shop and I'm trying to reset the phone but it won't allow me as I need to enter the code which I do not know and also Dollar Dealers didn't give me one. So...


Now, on your LG GW300, Dial 1809#*500# and choose Factory reset. No code required and phone won't ask: "Are you sure?". All settings will be reset to default values, including the user code (0000 is the default code after)

Regards

I had just bought a LG Ally and when I got it had a pattern lock. But since I don't know it and I don't know the Gmail it's under I can't unlock it. Can I take it to a Verizon to unlock it?


Yes, Verizon will help you with this.

You may need to reset the phone to get in without knowing the pattern lock. To do this (you will lose your saved phone numbers and any stored data!!), follow the steps:

1. Remove battery, then reinstall battery.
2. Hold Volume Up, Home and Power buttons for several seconds, until you see the setup screen.
3. Follow the prompts to set the phone up again.

The Samsung Smooth is a CDMA phone since it is offered through Verizon. It is possible to unlock this phone, but very difficult and requires advanced unlock software.

I bought a blackberry storm off of e bay and its locked to verizon and i need to use it with at&t what do i need to do


You'll need to unlock the network status of your unit (openline) and to do that you'll be needing special software and tools in which only the service technician only have, so just bring it to a service cellphone repair shop and ask them to open line the network or SP Unlock
