Question about Samsung SCH-a950 Cellular Phone

Cell Phone is locked

I was going through the settings on my Samsung SCH-A950 cell phone. I selected NAM 2. The phone turned off turned back on, and now it says "initial programmig needed" and there is a lock code that i can't get past. When ever I press some numbers and hit send it says, "USE RESTRICTED_ EMERGENCY CALL ONLY"

I did the same thing last night. was playing around and switched to nam 2. it took me 3 hours to get the right code but i did get it. my code was 5188. what I did was with excel print out every number from 0000 to 9999. I started with 5550 and worked up to 6000. when that did not work I then went from 5549 backwards and got it. the reason I started with the 5000 is because two other forums I looked in to the people who unlocked them where in the 5000s it could have just been a coincidences but it worked for me.

I clicked the namp2 thing and now i cant get it unlocked


If your phone is set to lock, and you have changed the Nam, you will have to take your phone to your provider so that they can read the lock code for Nam 2 and change it back to Nam 1. You may want to call them first, they might have a standard code that they use.

I have a sch U740 samsung phone nam 1 code


The lock code should be the last 4 digits of your phone number or 0000.

If that doesn't work, perform an activation by dialing *228 send. Then select option 1. After this is complete your phone's lock code should be reset to the last 4 digits of your phone number.
