Hi,

Let me give you a little background and then some solutions. This is generic because I don't know your carrier. I'm useing ATT as an example.

Phones are naturally unlocked, but a service provider might lock them

When originally manufactured, all GSM cell phones are unlocked. That is, they can be used with any SIM from any cellphone service provider - always assuming, of course, that the cellphone service provider has compatible GSM service on the same frequency bands that the phone can operate on.

Most cell phone service providers electronically 'lock' the phone so that it can only be used with their service. There are obvious reasons why they choose to do this - in particular, to force you to pay what are usually very high roaming charges when you take your phone out of their network and use it elsewhere in the world.

Fortunately, this locking is reversible. With some phones, it is possible to simply enter an unlocking password code into the phone and it is immediately then unlocked. Other phones need to be connected up to a special unlocking data terminal.

Your phone has to be unlocked by the carrier. LG, Motorala, Sony Ericsson, Nokia and most of their ilk, will not give consumers the unlock codes but don't despair.

A PUK (PIN Unlock Key) code is required to unlock SIM cards that have become locked following three successive incorrect PIN entries. If your SIM card becomes locked, you will need to get a PUK code from your carrier. For example, if you have AT&T to unlock your SIM card, you can obtain your phone's PUK code from AT&T by:

? logging in to your myWireless Account online
? using their Technical Support Chat
? calling Customer Care at 1-800-331-0500

To get your phone's PUK code online from ATT:

? Log in to your myWireless Account.
? Select My Services under My Account.
? From the My Services screen, select My Phone/Device.
? Select Unblock SIM Card.
? The Unblock SIM screen will display your PUK code.


Once you receive your PUK code, you will need to enter it into your phone to set a new PIN code.

Note: If you enter the wrong ATT PUK code 10 times in a row, your SIM card will be invalidated, and you will need to purchase a new SIM Card. The phone will display the following error: "PUK blocked call operator."

There are three other ways to unlock a phone:

? The carrier will unlock the phone for you at one of its retail outlets;
? You can do it yourself by clicking on this link Free Unlock Codes ,
? Pay $3.89 at the following website: www.theunlockshack.com/.

I trust that this is helpful and solves your problem. All the best

Ben

What can be done about my touch sensor no longer working. my phone turns on but i cant unlock it with my password but i still get phone calls and all my notifications.


What you will need to do is do a hard reset, what you want to do is hold these listed buttons, power,volume up,hold those two buttons and a sign will pop up and say hard reset click the button it tells you to do.

How do i unlock my phone if i frogot my google email.


The only way to unlock a locked phone is to perform a factory reset on the phone, however *THIS WILL DELETE ALL CONTACTS AND DATA ON THE PHONE* it's different for every phone but usually to initiate the reset you need to turn your phone off, then back on again whilst holding the volume up, power and home buttons simultaneously.

Boost may not be able to help with that, you may have to send it back to ZTE and pray that they know what they're doing.

You can try Pressing the emergency call at the bottom of the screen.
2. Input (star key)983(star keyl)987spawn key .the phone will go to the factory reset interface, and then press "Erase everything" (Don't check Erase SD ard). Finally, the phone will reboot by itself and there is no unlock and password any more after the phone is on.
Note:All your personal information would get deleted.
