Hi,

Let me give you a little background and then some solutions. This is generic because I don't know your carrier. I'm using 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, Motorola, 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 my wireless 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 my wireless 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

There was no manual for my new Sanyo Incognito SCP-6760 cell phone


First of all, thank you very much Kandice for choosing FIXYA today for your online technical support needs.


Here is a direct link to the ONLINE USER'S MANUAL for that model:


http://www.kyocera-wireless.com/sanyo/usa/incognito-scp6760-phone/pdf/Boost_Mobile_Incognito_SCP6760_User_Guide_en.pdf


To view the Owner's Manual with Operating Instructions just use your mouse to click on the link, which is the underlined and blue highlighted section of text just above.


This will open a new web browser page automatically for you and allow you to view the information at the website indicated and the contents of the Owner's Manual.


You may need ADOBE READER installed on your computer to read PDF documents, although many computers already have this type of utility pre-installed.


You can download this free at WWW.ADOBE.COM if necessary. Click on the DOWNLOAD ADOBE READER button on right side of the ADOBE home page when you get there, then follow the onscreen instructions to install the software on your computer.


I truly hope that was helpful to you.


Good luck and take care.

I need the code to unlock my sanyo incognito from boost mobile to T-mobile or 3


Impossible. Can not happen.

Boost is only iden or cdma.
Tmobile is still on the gsm platform.

You cant use a sim based network on a non-sim based network.

How do i unlock my sanyo incognito 6760 so it will work anywhere that a sim carded boost phone works?


The Boost sim card network is the iden network. The incagnito is the CDMA network.

They'll only work where they have service for them. Other then that their two totally separate networks.

How I Can UNLOCK my Cell-PHONE SCP6760 Sanyo Incognito. Jesse Thank you


Hi,

Welcome to Fixya. If you want to unlock the phone to be able to use to a different network you need to sign up to a third party unlocker so that they will unlock the phone for you. Even if you call Sanyo they won't be able to help you to unlock the phone. The third party unlocker uses a special program to be able to unlock the phones and that is not available for public

I got my sanyo incognito a little ago with my gf. it is my phone but she set it up and changed my lock code so that i didnt reset my phone but i need to reset it. please help me


I have three options for you:
  1. Get the lock code from your girlfriend (hopefully she will comply if she remembers it)
  2. Try the last four numbers of your mobile number (this is the default lock code)
  3. Last resort: Call customer service with your service provider.
