Hello,
Well if you bought it from someone you need to find out the last 4 numbers of their phone number. With verizon that's always the lock code pass! If it was yours, it would be the last four numbers of your phone number when you got it hooked up. If all else fails, take it to verizon and they can unlock it for you...Thank you!!...

Regards!!....

Verizon is a CDMA network, so phones on it aren't "locked" like in the traditional sense of GSM phones. The easiest thing to do would be to take it to a Verizon store and have them put it back on your account. Being that it was reported stolen they might not do it but if you can somehow prove that it was yours and then you lost it and now found it I would think they could do it. If they won't do it, try a different Verizon store, and make buddies with the person working there. This is because in order to flash a CDMA phone, you would need certain proprietary software that you can't just find on the internet. Hope that helps........

Samsung galaxy s6 g-sm920v imei repair


Samsung Galaxy s6 GSM 920v: IMEI Blacklisted Verizon:

Hello. You can't do anything about the IMEI being Blacklisted from Verizon. That phone is deemed stolen. You bought stolen goods

You could report the Seller to your local police to tell them that you were tricked into buying stolen property.

The only thing you can do with this phone is use it with another cellular provider SIM card. Most Verizon Samsung Galaxy Android phones are already Factory unlocked. You won't be able to get perfect reception on other carriers but you can use it with AT&T or T-Mobile's SIM cards. No Verizon or Sprint though.

How do I activate and unlock a Verizon moto g cell phone


To unlock it from a provider, you need a sim from the provider and an unlock code from them. They won't give out any code for a stolen phone. There are sites on the net, that give out codes for a fee. It is not legal, so you won't find it easy, and not every code they sell works.

Help i have a vx8550r verizon phone its not in service but i want to give it to my daughter but i lost the lock number..how do i unlock it?


If you're referring to the phone unlock code that you have to enter to get into the phone, the only way to get around a forgotten code is to reset the phone to factory settings.

To do this, type ##786, and then select "ok".

The Samsung Smooth is a CDMA phone since it is offered through Verizon. It is possible to unlock this phone, but very difficult and requires advanced unlock software.

Unlock codes for verizon to use in other service provider


Not happening ... Verizon phones run on a CDMA network. Cingular and T Mobile run on GSM ... Sprint although runs on CDMA .. last i heard were making most of their phones hybrid (CDMSA and iDEN ) and verizon phones can in no way shape or form be made a hybrid phone... specially not an LG phone.

Also, with verizon phones, there's nothing to unlock .. they are ESN bound phones meaning only the service provider can say YES or NO weather they'll use it on their network or not. There's no CIM cards

Sorry
