June 11th, 2008 by Eric

On the AT&T Network, to unlock the LG Vu or CU920, it’s pretty simple:
Put a AT&T or Cingular SIM in the phone; it does not have to be an active SIM
Enter *#865625# then the 16 digit unlock code*
Device should say: Network Lock Deactivated
Phone may automatically reboot

*The 16 digit code can be obtained by calling AT&T Technical Support and given the representative the IMEI number. In exchange they will give you the Subsidy Unlock Code.

PERMANENT UNLOCK CODE SAMSUNG SGH A117, T429, T729

Insert ANY unaccepted SIM card in the phone and then turn the phone on, follow the steps in 1 to 4 below to enter all the codes. The phone will states "Wrong card" at the end of step 2 and "network lock deactivated" at the end of step 4 if you do everything right so pls take your time to enter the code or follow the instruction correctly at each step. When entering some of the zeros at steps 3 and 4 your phone may display the zero as hyphen or minus (-), dont worry, just count when entering the zero to ensure you enter just the right numbers of zeros. Now let's begin... 1/ Put any unaccepted SIM card in your SAMSUNG SGH Phone, turn the phone on, it will display "WRONG CARD"

2/ At the wrong card screen, type *7465625*638*00000000*00000000#

3/ Now remove the battery with the SIM card, Put the battery back and turn the phone on again without the SIM card, it will display "Insert SIM card" 4/ At the insert SIM card screen/end of step 3 above type #7465625*638*00000000#

At the end of step 4 phone will show "network lock deactivated" 5/ Now Reinsert your unaccepted card or any other unaccepted SIM card in the phone and enjoy your unlocked phone!

CHECK SIM-LOCK
Note - If you bought your Nokia on UK Vodafone or UK Cellnet you do not need to check this because they both transmit on GSM900, and they don't lock the phones. However if you bought your phone on UK Orange or UK One2one your phone may be blocked. The reason is that they both transmitt on GSM1800. To make a call on GSM1800 you need what is known as a "Dual band" phone. A dual band phone is able to transmit on both GSM900 and GSM1800, so they lock the phones so you can't use it with any other network simcard. If you find that your phone is locked you can try different software to unlock it. (we havn't found one that works yet), or you can ask your service provider who will gladly exchange the 10 digit code for about £35.
This is how to check the status of the 4 different locks. Aslo don't try entering the wrong number, because after 3 times it will block the phone for good.

There are 4 different locks on your Nokia phone.
  • COUNTRY-LOCK
  • NETWORK-LOCK
  • PROVIDER-LOCK
  • SIMCARD-LOCK
The code to read out the sim-lock status of your phone is

#PW+(MASTERCODE)+(Y)#
  • # = DOUBLE-CROSS
  • W = PRESS "*" THREE TIMES
  • P = PRESS "*" FOUR TIMES
  • + = PRESS "*" TWO TIMES
  • MASTERCODE = 1234567890
  • Y = NUMBER 1 TO 4
The master code is a secret code. The code has 10 digits, To read out the sim-lock status you can enter every combination you want!
"Y" Shows the status of the network-lock. Here you can enter a number from "1" to "4". The "4" is for the sim-card lock.

SIM-LOCK CHECKS
  • #PW+1234567890+1# = GIVES PROVIDER-LOCK STATUS
  • #PW+1234567890+2# = GIVES NETWORK-LOCK STATUS
  • #PW+1234567890+3# = GIVES COUNTRY-LOCK STATUS
  • #PW+1234567890+4# = GIVES SIM-CARD-LOCK STATUS.

I need the IMEI (International Mobile Equipment Identity) number. Type this code in your phone to get it: *#06# you can also find it beneath the battery.
I also need to know the make and model of phone, the network that the phone is locked on, and the country the network is from. Then I will give you the codes. If this is what you want.


SIM pin code:
This is a pin code that locks the sim card until you enter the correct code. This protects your account, even
if your sim is put into another handset. To reset it, you need the PUK code:
Pin Unlock Code (PUK)
If you miss key (or forget) your SIM pin code, and enter the wrong one 3-5 times in a row, the SIM will lock up, and you’ll need to enter the PUK unlock code to release it. You should ask your Network Service Provider for this code when you need it. Don’t try to guess it, because after a few wrong guesses, the SIM card will be permanently disabled.
Phone Security Code:
This locks the handset, as opposed to the sim card. You can also set some handsets to only accept a “new” sim if the phone security code is entered. To reset it, you need the Master code code:
Master Reset Code
Sometimes known as the Master Code, this allows you to unlock a handset if you have entered the Security Code wrongly too many times.

Special Code/Service Provider Lock Code:
This code is required to allow a phone locked to a particular network's SIM cards to be used with a SIM card from another network. The unlock code varies from individual Handset to Handset, and Network to Network.
Which is the one that you want?

hi
Try with all the code to see whether you can get one to unlock your phone. If all still cannot help then you can only contact Samsung Support for help. I hope these information below at least can give you some hints:

Note try codes which help direct unlock for either SIM Lock or Security Lock first before try other codes

*7465625*746*Code# = Enables SIM lock
#7465625*746*Code# = Disables SIM lock
*2767*2878# (Temporary Unlock)
*7465625*638*00000000*00000000# (Set Code)
#7465625*638*00000000# (Clear Network Lock)
*#7465625# (Verify the network lock is “inactive”)

*2767*3855#
*2767*3855# - FULL E2P RESET
*2767*2878# - CUSTOM E2P RESET
#*7337# - UNLOCK
*2767*688# - UNLOCK
*#0523# - CONTRAST
*#9998*523# - CONTRAST
*#8999*8378# - Service Menu (X100)

First with different carrier SIM in phone at WRONG CARD screen ENTER on the keypad
*2767*3855# (wait 10-15 seconds) phone will reboot(restart)
When phone completes reboot ENTER
*7465625*638*00000000*00000000#
NEXT ENTER
#7465625*638*00000000#
AND THEN *#7465625# to check the locks....all locks are inactive...these are all the locks...
network lock - inactive
subset lock - inactive
sp lock - inactive
cp lock - inactive
sim lock - inactive
activa lock - inactive
phone lock - inactive
auto network - inactive
auto subset lock - inactive
auto sp lock - inactive
auto cp lock - inactive

Good Luck
