    I've done the same thing, phone is locked on power up and no obvious code is working. Call verizon they say to call samsung tech support but they are not open right now.

    I did the same thing. I was told to take it to a Verizon store and they will hook it up to a computer to try and get the code. I found out NAM is for if you ahve a second number you are using on the same phone. I didn't know this before I played around with the options. I tried every code I can come up with. Even the tech from verizon was trying all sorts of codes with me over the phone. Now I have to drive 20 miles to a Verizon store that has the capabilities to fix what I have done.

    Lesson learned...Don't select something if you have no clue what it does. Now I can't do a thing with my phone.

You will need to take the phone in for reprograming, if you set your phone security to prompt for password at startup and forgot the code you'll end up needing to get the phone reset, which will clear everything, your numbers,images etc. if you know your original code i can help you switch it back without losing any info.

How to bypass phone 4 digits lock code or how to get the lock code if it wasn't the last 4 gigits of the phone number and I don't know what it is?

If you put your phone on nam2, like i did, you need to call samsung's hotline. customer service can provide you with the nam2 access code. Verizon would make you pay 59.99 to get a reflash to basically do the same thing. samsung's number is on the back of your phone

Lock code for nam2 settings

Ok i sent an email to sumsung and i got this response

Thank you for your email. If you switched the NAM to NAM2 you will need to calculate the code. Listed below are the steps on how to do so:
1.Obtain the Hexadecimal ESN of the phone. The ESN should be printed on the sticker on the back of the phone, under the battery. The Hexadecimal ESN is the one with letters and numbers.
2.Open Windows calculator by going to Start -> Run -> type in "calc", then click OK
In the Calculator, click "View" then "Scientific".
3.Click on Hex and type in the Hex ESN
4.Click on Dec for the decimal conversion and use the last four digits for the code on the handset
5.Once the code is entered and the menu can be accessed, switch the NAM to NAM1

My samsung a870 is locked in nam2 & none of the default codes seem to work. is there a code to unlock & erase my phone?

i believed that it changed the last four digits of you phone number and the default number would probably be the same last four digits. Try 0000 and if that doesn't work, then you might have to take it in to your service provider and they should be able to reset your phone for you. Also, below the batter, there is a 1-800 number you can for information.
