Question about Samsung SGH-E900 Cellular Phone

1 Answer

Touch buttons won't work after having tried to unlock

I basically ordered a new sim card from Blyk which I tried to put in to my Samsung E900 (which is registered with the p*ss-poor network, Vodafone). Upon realising the Sim card wouldn't be accepted I did some research on the internet to find a guide to unlocking this specific phone.

I was very happy when I found a rather well-written guide which apparently worked for other users, but to my horror discovered that in the process my touch buttons completely deactivated. I can't turn them back on, because I need them to get to the settings menu to see if I can turn them back on.

Basically I'm rather f***ed- So although I managed to get the sim card working in the phone, it was to absolutely no use because the touch buttons plain simply don't work- they don't even light up.

For the love of god please help me out here because, being a student, I lack money enough as it is- the last thing I need is to have to buy a new phone.

I have put a vodaphone sim in my old virgin e-900 and it says invalid sim card, limited service. How do I unblock it?

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 can get Samsung SGH-E900 Unlock Code from the network provider, they will verify the account holder information. They can open up all networks for you where you want to use your phone. You can check Samsung Unlock Code site, they will provide you an accurate code fast for the lowest price with easy to follow instructions on how to unlock your phone. Once your phone is unlock, it will work with any networks worldwide without sticking to one network only.
Hope it helps.

Samsung SGHJ700 sin locked

the code you're given is meant to be a one time open network, where you basically reset your phone's network settings. If you buy a cheap PAYG phone from the carphone warehouse, you can use any sim card you want as they're all open phones :)
