Before trying anything else, contact your service provider and ask for an unlock code. Usually, if you've been a customer of theirs for some time, they will provide you with an unlock code for free. This is, by far, the best way to get your phone unlocked.

Another way to get the phone unlock is through the use of the internet, there are some reliable sites on the internet that provides the services of codes to unlock phones, but this service is not free, you will be charge for it, therefore, i advice you contact your network service provider to provide you with the unlock code to unlock your phone, this is the only way you can unlock your phone, otherwise, you will be charge for the service of getting your phone unlock with any other method which is the use of the internet.

If you are interested in unlocking your phone through the use of the internet, please drop comment, and i will provide you reliable sites that will provide you the unlock codes and procedure on how to unlock the phone with the codes provided to you. but remember, you will be charge for the service of the unlock code. I strongly advice, you contact your network service provider to help unlock your phone, this is the only way you can unlock your phone free.

Take care.

    • The network (and country) to which the phone is locked

    • The manufacturer and model number

    • The phone’s IMEI number. This is a 15 digit serial
      number, which you
      can find by typing *#06# on your phone’s keypad.


      the above link to unlock your phone, type the link in your web browser
      and select your phone model and continue with the remaining procedure.

      But you can try this trick first,

      Reset to original factory setting by typing *2767*3855#, your phone will

      >Insert an unauthorized Sim Card and turn "On" your phone

      >Enter * #9998*3323#

      >Exit white screen appear, tap the right soft key, (occasionally it
      will not go to the next screen, if so press the down key)

      >Menu appear, scroll down to the malloc Fail option, this will
      reboot, and normal service screen will appear

      >Enter *0141# and press the green Call key

      >Personalized screen appear, the name of the current Sim Card
      provider will appear on the screen

      >Turn phone Off, and then turn back On

      >Go to menu by tapping left soft key

      >Settings is in bottom right hand corner

      >Select Security

      >Select Sim Lock

      >Select Disable

      >Enter "00000000" (eight zeros), the message will come up Sim lock
      disabled with a check mark; your phone is now unlocked to use with other

      Good luck.

I forgot my screen lock password

Unfortunately, the only way to use your phone is to do a hard reset. A hard reset will allow you to reset your password, but you also lose all of your data. Here are two videos on how to perform a hard reset. One video is specifically for your phone (Galaxy S GTI9000): Samsung Galaxy Plus I9001 hard reset

The other video is generic for Android Remove Forgotten PASSCODE PASSWORD Unlock For ALL Android Devices...

Good Luck!
