Hi, if the phone is brand new then you know their shouldnt be any problem with the phone the chances are the problem is with the sim card, you need to call the network provider the sim is with and register the sim card once it is registered you will be able to use your phone with no restrictions

contact your service provider and they will register the sim card or provide you with a new sim card that is not blocked

i hope that answers your question
please let me know if you need further assistance ok

Want code to unlock my phone to all net works samsung gt s5230

This phone cannot be unlocked manually by the user, as many more recent cell phones can't, In order to unlock it, you have two options.
  1. Call Samsung customer service at 1-888-987-4357. Request the unlock code for your phone. You will be asked to provide account holder information. If asked to provide a reason, it is best to say that you are putting your phone up for resale. Whether or not the code is actually provided to you depends on your providers policy and the details of your contract, however it can do no harm to ask.
  2. To unlock your phone without help from Samsung, you can visit a phone unlocking website and enter your model number. For a small fee (usually around $20 USD, credit card or Paypal), the website will walk you through the process of unlocking your phone. Here is a link to the specific page for your phone on one such website:
Once your phone has been unlocked, it can be freely used on any network. Enjoy!

Just got samsung gt-s5230 put my sim in but doesn't work just ses limited sevice emergency calls only ?? i'm on pay monthly orange network

Hi there, If you are trying to use a SIM card in your phone and getting a message like "Enter Subsidy Code", "Incorrect SIM Card", "SIM not provisioned" or similar messages, then you need an unlock code for your mobile phone. You may contact to your service provider Samsung GT-s5230 Unlock Code to get your code fast, its hassle free. I suggest to visit Samsung Unlock Code site, they will provide an accurate code with easy to follow instructions on how to unlock your phone. Once your phone is unlock, it will work with any network worldwide without sticking to one network only.
Hope this is helpful

your netwerk is down, the only way to do give the netwerk back is by giving the phone calibration and software. but if your phone is at warranty, this for the best, then go to a local repair center, they will know what to do without doing extra damage to your phone
