    I have tried a few of the unlocking sites online and they said they could not find a code.

    The Saga Phone has settings selections for a CDMA network, or a GSM Network. We have the GSM selection made. Will that make a difference?

Hello,

You can get the unlock code by contacting your current service provider customer care department. If your phone is locked you can use any of your friends phone to make this call. The service provider will then provide you the unlocking codes.
Remember that the reason why the codes are provided only through customer service provider is that, they will make a check on your name and identity proof at the time of your call. If the information is found to be correct and matching with their data then you will be provided with the codes. Everything is done for free of cost and you are not going to be charged for this process.
This is the universal solution and is useful for many customers who are facing these kind of problems. Don't believe in any websites which provides unlock codes. All are fake. Only your service provider can provide these codes.

Another alternative is, you can take the phone to any authorize phone service center to help unlock the phone, because to unlock your phone, you will need some kind of software, USB cable etc to unlock the phone, so you can also go a nearby phone service center to unlock the phone, but calling your network service provider is the best because they have the records of your phone and can easily help to unlock it. This are the two reliable means you can unlock your phone.


Take care.

    Thanks for your response!!

    That would not make a Difference. The Phone Manufacturer Controls the Hardware and Service Provider rules the Software.

    As of now, there is NO Technique to Unlock CDMA as those are completely Different technology.

    But, Yes, if there are GPS settings by the Phone Manufacturer, you do have an Option to Re-Flash the Software and then Use the SIM.

    However, it is not Easy to Find Someone, who Could Re-Flash the Software ( Reflash means Re-installation, there is a need to Modify the Hardware as well,if required ). The cost of all this could be really High in Countries like US, UK, Canada ( or rather European or American Countries ).

    Let me know,if needed further assistance.

    Hope i helped you.

    Thanks
    for using ' Fixya ' and have a nice day!!

    Samsung Saga Unlocking Instructions



    Warning : Do not enter any wrong unlock codes on your Samsung Saga

    1 - Switch ON your Samsung Saga with a NOT ACCEPTED SIM Card.

    2 - Don't bother about what's being displayed on your Samsung Saga.

    3 - Compose : #0111*CODE#.



    NOT ACCEPTED: We mean, to use a sim card from a network other than
    the network your Samsung Saga is locked to.

    CODE: Its the unique Unlock Code for your Samsung Saga.



    If method 2 does not work, you can try method 2 again but this time
    without any SIM card on your Samsung Saga.

Can u find me a code to unlock Samsung galaxy exhibit IMEI 359874041306247. THANKS


Hello. You can definitely unlock your T-mobile network locked Samsung Galaxy Exhibit using unique unlock code. You can get the unique unlock code for your Samsung Galaxy Exhibit from Mobile-Unlocker.com at affordable cost with an easy unlocking guide. But you can unlock a GSM network locked phone to use any other GSM network SIM card only. Verizon is CDMA network provider. You cannot use it with the unlocked phone.

I just bought a verizon note3 and didn't know its a bad emei. Can you hel?


Yes. Tmobile SIM cards (or AT&T) will not work in Verizon or Sprint devices. They use different technologies at this time. If you have a tmobile SIM card, the only type of device that your SIM card would work in is a tmobile device, or a unlocked AT&T device, or any other international GSM device (e.g. Vodaphone, Orange, etc).

I have a Smasung SGH-T749 Locked to T-Mobile. I would like to cahnge carriers to Verizon. I need to unlock this phone I have tried various codes but no luck. Please Help.


you can not. T-Mobile uses GSM technology and SIM cards (the type of cell tower it connects to), and Verizon uses CDMA technology (no SIM, different type of tower). To get the unlock code i will suggest the website Unlock-Zone.com which is doing good service .....you can approach this website.

I have a lg chocolate touch that says verizon on it. My carrier is tmobile. Is the phone compatible? How do I unlock?


No it is not compatible at all.

Tmobile and Verizon use 2 totally different cell serrvices. Verizon is a CDMA signal and Tmobile uses a sim card based GSM service. Those 2 are not cross compatible.

Unlocked verizon blackberry world phone wont work with t-mobile


i believe i had had the same issue.

i unlocked an at&t phone and put in the sim card and it wouldnt work. i called tmobile and the representative told me that they have to register the sim card to their network or something.

so just call tmobile and tell them you got a new phone and want to register it so the sim will work in the unlocked phone.
