MY RAZR V3 IS ASKING FOR SUBSIDY PASSWORD


If one of theses messages appear :

- "Contact Service Provider"
- "Tampert Alter"
- "Wait before enter special Code"
- "Contact Service'

It's because you or somebody already entered too many wrong codes, you just have to leave the Motorola RAZR V3 ON with the errors message and after 40 minutes to 2 hours the message "Enter Code Special" will appear again!

You can get the Subsidy code from the site
Wickedunlock.com/motorola-razr-v3/rs11wp9/ and Unlock Motorola Razr V3 phone from network lock.

Subsidy password for motorola w490


The term Subsidy Password is used by Motorola and other handset manufacturers to refer to the 8-digit (or 16-digit code for newer phones such as the Motorola K1) unlock code necessary to remove the operator lock (also known as subsidy lock) from cell phones. This code is randomly assigned to individual cell phones by the OEM on request of the mobile service operator and prevents the use of a particular phone on a cellular network other than that to which the phone was originally sold.

To get the Subsidy code You can reach here
Mobileunlocksolutions.com enter the code correctly following the instructions below:

Warning : Do not enter any wrong unlock codes on your Motorola W490 mobile phones. If you enter over a certain amount of wrong unlock codes on your Motorola W490 mobile phone, your phone may get hard locked and sometimes become unusable.
1 - Switch ON your Motorola W490 with a NOT ACCEPTED SIM Card,
2 - Phone will display "Enter Special Code",
3 - You can now enter the Unlock Code.

NOT ACCEPTED: We mean, to use a sim card from a network other than the network your Motorola W490 is locked to.

WARNING: If one of theses messages appear :

- "Contact Service Provider"
- "Tampert Alter"
- "Wait before enter special Code"
- "Contact Service'

How to contact service provider?


The subsidy lock is only given by your phone company provider therefore if you don't enter it correctly it locks the phone. This code is given by motorola only to the cell phone companies so if for example you have a tmobile sim you would call tmobile and tell them that your phone is asking for the subsidy lock code.
