I locked my samsung freeform and i cant unlock it
To unlock a Metro Samsung Freeform cell phone the following steps can be taken.
• Code keying
The code to unlock most Metro Samsung phones is normally one of two codes. This can be entered by following these steps: Turn the phone on, enter this text exactly: #UNLOCKED#, Enter the code; this will either be 587846 or 000000. The phone should now be unlocked. If the phone is still locked there are a number of other options available to people.
• Take the phone to a cell phone shop
Many cell phone repairers will unlock most phones for a small fee, this is normally done when people decide that they want to change their network provider, and the phone will not work with different providers' SIM cards.
• Contact customer services
The final way to unlock the cell phone is to contact Samsung customer services. They can be contacted by dialing 1-888-987-4357, from Monday to Friday between 7am and 9pm, and on Saturdays between 9am and 6pm.
Before contacting the customer services, the customer should make a note of the IMEI number of the phone. This can be found under the battery of the phone, or by dialing *#06#. The IMEI number will be displayed on the screen of the phone. When calling the IMEI number will be asked for, and the customer service representative will ask a number of security questions to ensure that the person calling is the owner of the phone.
They will be able to unlock the phone once they have all this information.
The final step can be taken when trying to unlock a Metro PCS Freeform, as well as any other Samsung cell phones.
Unlock your phone and press "MENU". Then press the number "9" on your keyboard.
The press the "#" symbol on your keyboard. You should come to a screen saying "User Lock".
This is where you are going to enter the numbers "587846".
After you unlock that screen you will need to hit the "#" symbol one more time.
This will bring up another screen saying "User Lock", at this screen type the numbers "8886573982".
Once that screen is unlocked you have finally come to the menu where you choose the option to get into the phone parameters.
At this menu choose the option that says "USERPREFS Editor". (NOTE: After you choose that option PLEASE BE CAREFUL not to accidentally change a parameter, beacause you might mess your phone up royally.)
Ok, so after you've chosen that option you will see a screen saying "HIDDEN_MENUS:I" with a "1" underneath the writing.
If you see this then you are in the correct place!
Now this next instruction is rediculous but it has to be done.
Hit your up button until you come to the words "DUN_CABLE_ENABLE:I". (It is a far ways up so don't think that it's not there, just keep pressing the up button until you come to it!)
Under these words you will see a "1".
Delete the "1" and in place of it put a "0". (What this does is sets the phone operating system to enable DUN which is what we need to do in order to tether our phone.)
Now after you change the number you need to make sure you hit "Ok" which is the middle button.
Without hitting "Ok" then it will not save what you have just changed.
Now hit the end button and you are done with this part.
