Question about Motorola Cell Phones

2 Answers

I have just bought a Motorola V635. When I put my SIM card in it asks me for the Unlock Code which was obviously reset from the Factory Setting by the previous owner. According to the Manual I can bypass this by using the Security Code but the default has been changed on this as well. I wonder if there is any easy solution other than keep trying Unlock codes until I hit the right one.

    Hi
    Thanks for reply Unfortunately this code does not work and I bought the phone from a market so do not know who the previous owner was.

    Hi
    Thanks for reply.
    I have tried 0000 and my own SIM code. As I bought the phone from a market I do not know who was the previous owner so cannot contact them!

    Dear Marrie
    I am not sure how to get the test page on to the screen. Do I need the SIM card in the phone or not? When it is in the screen goes straight to the Unlock Code option. Without the SIM in it seems to be set for Emergency Calls only.

    Sorry - I am something of a beginner on this, I'm afraid.

    Hi Marrie

    It goes straight to 'Unlock Code' and there are 4 digits. I have so far tried about 30% of the possible 10k or so combinations but have not found the magic number so far.

    Thanks again

    Dear Marrie
    That was very useful for enabling me to get into the phone. However when I switched it off and back onagain it still asked for the lock code. I have managed to get in again but am still not sure how to get to the test sccreen that you mentioned earlier.

    Thanks for your continuing help.

    Hi Marrie
    I have done as you say but I cannot turn off the settings without inputting the Unlock code, I'm afraid. Any further suggestions welcomed. If I could get into the test routine that you mentioned earlier perhaps this would work......

    Thanks

    Bob

    Hi Marrie.

    That's just great.

    Thanks once more.

    Dear Marrie

    After a lot of phone keyboard practice I have now found the right code to unlock the phone. However I have not been able to track the 6 digit security code so any help with this would be much appreciated still.

    Thanks for all your help - I will happily give you a rating if you confirm how I should do it.

Hi brambob

Have you tried 0000 or your own pin number yet ?

Alternatively call the person you bought this from and ask them the codes.

    Hi brambob



    The info you are looking for is as follows :



    Put phone in Test mode - 048263* (Push the key quickly!)
    you should see this message: "Opcode", 'Cancel' "Okay'
    After Putting t phone in test mode then use following commands
    to see or reset security code.
    User code -> 32*116*1*0*0
    Security code -> 32*118*1*0*0 Master Reset -> 18*0
    Master Clear -> 18*1 ----
    * is Asterisk key on the phone keyboard



    This is apparently the only way reset the password placed on the phone by the previous user.



    Let me know if you require any further assistance and don't forget to rate this solution.



    Kind Regards

    Hi Bob



    Ok , once you've entered the phone , then I suppose you have access to your SIM ?



    If so go to Settings in the Menu and then to Security Settings.



    You'll see subfolders under the Security that reads :



    Phone Lock , SIM Lock , PIN Lock and Privacy Lock.



    Simply turn them all off.



    Then switch off the phone and back on again.



    This should do the trick.



    Please notify me.

I bought a unlock code for my lg gt365 neon and i put a tracfone sim card in it and it says emergency calls only how do i fix it so i can use a tracfone sim card.


First you need to unlock your phone before you put tracfone sim card on that phone. Make sure you have appropriate LG neon GT365 unlock code example : if your old sim card using t-mobile you must use t-mobile unlock code for your phone not tracfone. You can get lg unlock code from online seller with lower price and quick turnaround.

Hi there how are you , my phone blackberry pearl 9105 is looked by password i forget that password can you help my surf that and i need to unlocked sim free thanks


What exactly you need, blackberry bold 9700 unlock code to unlock your sim card or just blackberry security code? Blackberry unlock code is a code to unlock your phone from original network provider, so you can change your sim card with any sim card from other network. If your phone just need security code to access phone features, you just need to reset your blackberry using default factory setting. See your blackberry manual book for details instruction how to do it.

I bought from amazon.com a new unlocked Motorola Cliq XT MB501 with a T-mobile logo on it. I received also a unlock code for my sim card. . At beginning I could access my main menu on the phone but after a...


It seems your Motorola Cliq XT MB501 Unlock Code is not correct and I think your phone right now in deep unlocked state. To solve this you can contact to T-Mobile to get that Motorola Unlock Code, since you bought that phone from thrid party (Amazon) it will be difficult to get unlock code from T-Mobile, but you can try that. And if you want quick solution, you can get that unlock code by buying from third party sites. I hope my solution can solve your problem.

I bought a new AT&T Go Phone and put my old at&t sim card in it and it worked for three days. Now I get a sim card not provisioned mm#2 message.


Maybe you need to unlock your phone network with lg neon gt365 unlock code for at&t network. This code can reset your phone network to default factory setting so you can easily change your sim card with other sim card even form other network provider. To get lg unlock code you can purchase at third party sites on internet.

I bought a cell phone from a friend


sounds like the phone was set up to ask for a sim password from the old user. Now that you put your card in it wants the password but the phone does not know the card has been switched. Ask your buddy the code to unlock the bios and disable the password. If al lelse fails put his old sim card back in and then disable the password for the sim card. This feature is a security so people cannot access your contact stored on your sim card.

How can i restore factory setting in motorola v3i without sim card


Master Reset
Reset all options except unlock code, security code, and lifetime timer:

Go into Settings > Initial Setup > Master Reset

---------------------------------------------------------------------

Master Clear
Caution:
Master clear erases all information you have entered (including phonebook and datebook entries) and content you have downloaded (including photos and sounds) stored in your phone’s memory. After you erase the information, you can’t recover it. Clear all settings and entries you made except SIM card information, erase downloaded pictures and sound files, and
reset all options except unlock code, security code, and lifetime timer:

Go into Settings > Initial Setup > Master Clear
