Pay as you go phones are prepaid cell phones. you use a calling card to add minutes to your account when you want to, if your don't add any minutes within a certain amount of days your phone may be deactivated......Cell Phone carrier's are Cellphones in which you have a plan you pay monthly example. 29.99 a month with 600 minutes of talk time ..these plans are provided by services like t-mobile sprint at&t etc....and last but not least a unlocked phone is a cell phone that can be used by any carrier.. cellphones are modified to only be used by the carrier at which they are sold from. using a unlocked phone you can use your phone with any carrier you choose...if you are leaving the USA you should get a carrier phone but do something that is called (holding your account) while you are gone

samsung d900, u600,t619,x507,t629, t729

I want to know all the secret codes of samsung d900i please!


Hi,

There are three types of codes and I'll briefly describe all of them, In addition, I'll tell you how to deal with each of them.

I'm sometimes accused of not giving short answers. However, my philosophy is that too much is better than too little.

Still with me?

Let me give you a little background and then some solutions. This is generic because I don't know your carrier. I'm using AT&T as an example. Most carriers use the same procedure but the wording may differ.

First type of code. Phones are naturally unlocked, but a service provider might lock them when originally manufactured, all GSM cell phones are unlocked. That is, they can be used with any SIM from any cellphone service provider - always assuming, of course, that the cellphone service provider has compatible GSM service on the same frequency bands that the phone can operate on.

Most cell phone service providers electronically 'lock' the phone so that it can only be used with their service. There are obvious reasons why they choose to do this - in particular, to force you to pay what are usually very high roaming charges when you take your phone out of their network and use it elsewhere in the world.

Fortunately, this locking is reversible. With some phones, it is possible to simply enter an unlocking password code into the phone and it is immediately then unlocked. Other phones need to be connected up to a special unlocking data terminal.

Your phone has to be unlocked by the carrier. LG, Motorola, Sony Ericsson, Nokia and most of their ilk, will not give consumers the unlock codes but don't despair.

Second type of code. A PUK (PIN Unlock Key) code is required to unlock SIM cards that have become locked following three successive incorrect PIN entries. If your SIM card becomes locked, you will need to get a PUK code from your carrier. For example, if you have AT&T to unlock your SIM card, you can obtain your phone's PUK code from AT&T by:

? logging in to your my wireless Account online
? using their Technical Support Chat
? calling Customer Care at 1-800-331-0500

To get your phone's PUK code online from ATT:

? Log in to your my wireless Account.
? Select My Services under My Account.
? From the My Services screen, select My Phone/Device.
? Select Unblock SIM Card.
? The Unblock SIM screen will display your PUK code.


Once you receive your PUK code, you will need to enter it into your phone to set a new PIN code.

Note: If you enter the wrong ATT PUK code 10 times in a row, your SIM card will be invalidated, and you will need to purchase a new SIM Card. The phone will display the following error: "PUK blocked call operator."

Third type of code. All carriers have a master passwords that will allow you to change a forgotten password. However, they are first going to make certain that the phone is not stolen before dealing with you.

Use the following steps:

• Go online with your carrier, e.g., AT&T, Verizon, etc.
• Click on My Account
• Click on Support
• If it is available, click on 'Forgot My Password'. If not available, Insert the following wording: 'I forgot my password' and click on 'Enter'.
• You will then be asked for your telephone number, your name, Social Security Number, billing address, etc.
• You will then be provided with a temporary password.

You can also handle the above by telephone. Just call Customer Service or use the company's live or virtual chat service and they'll take you through the same procedure.

Sorry that I can't be carrier specific.


There are three other ways to unlock a phone:

? The carrier will unlock the phone for you at one of its retail outlets;
? You can do it yourself by trying some of the YouTube entries. I used to recommend one or two but found them all to be scams. The same with the $1.99 sites. They seem to all have codes for phones no one has ever heard of (In the trade it's known as bait-and-switch). If you see language such as: "FREE Cell Phone Mobile Unlock Code with TrialPay", remember that most things in life are not free.
? Pay $5.99+ at the following website: www.theunlockshack.com/. I have absolutely no affiliation or relationship with The Unlock Shack or its principals. However, they seem to be reliable.

I trust that this is helpful and solves your problem. All the best

Hello and sorry to read about your problem.

First, their is no secret code to unlock your phone. The carrier has the ability to unlock your phone. But it must be that carriers phone. you need to contact the carrier, that owns your phone. I far as your private security code PUK,
Example: Phone was on AT&T and you want on T-Mobile..
AT&T has to give you the unlock code.
In addition to that, their is another code which allows you to change carriers, again you must contact the carrier...
NO SECRET CODES FOLKS. Their are online service's that you can pay for a PUK code.

Can I unlock a motorola cell to use fron verizon to cricket?


Well the answer would be yes but that would cost you some money, what happens is that the carrier rovides you the cell phone on a discounted price and lock it to the carrier so that you cannot use another carrier but you can pay the difference amount of discount like
if the set is worth 200$ and the carrier gave it for 50$ you got to pay 150$ to unlock the phone.

I ordered an lg neon online and i got it and put in my centennial simcard and the phone is locked. i need the unlock code please. imei is 012148-00-063698-8


Honestly no one can give you lg neon unlock code, since they need to pay some charge from network provider to get that code. By the way you didn't give complete information in your question to generated lg unlock code, you must know to generated an unlock code origina network carrier and imei number information is needed and you didn't explain your phone original carrier network.

Just need the subsidy code for my samsung t429(on t-mobile) trying to unlock and use for boost...thanks


HI

A restriction code is numeric code (password) that prevents a user from accessing certain technical settings of a phone. It is specifically designed to prevent a phone from being reprogrammed to work with a different carrier (service provider).

This is what is usually meant when a phone is referred to as "locked". There are also "unlocked" phones that can be reprogrammed to work with a different carrier.

The reason for this system is the way phones are often sold. Many phones are sold below cost, (at a loss to the carrier,) with the expectation that the money will be recouped in the cost of the monthly service plan. The up-front loss that is later recouped is called a Subsidy.

For this to work financially for the carrier, the user must not buy the phone and then use it with a different carrier. The MSL makes that nearly impossible.

Unlocked phones are ususally much more expensive than locked phones, because there is no subsidy to offset the cost.

You should ask the operator for the restriction code
