Question about Cell Phones

1 Answer

Cell Phone I found a Samsun A-707 cell phone in a rental car. I went to return it and they did not know who the owner was. I took it to the phone store and they could not trace it. I want to keep the phone and use it to travel overseas. I have the code to unlock the phone. But when I turn on the phone, it is asking for a password which I do not have. Is there anyway to clear everything from phone's memmory including the start up passoword ?

If it hasn't been changed, the default passcode is 00000000. It also may be SIM locked, in which case you'll have to contact one of the companies that unlocks these. I recently had a phone unlocked by It's not a free service, but they have very good support. And most the time you don't have to mail your phone out. There is no universal code to unlock a SIM locked phone - as it's tied to the original service provider. If you don't know who provided service to the phone, you probably will have to ship your phone to them to get it unlocked.

Found a Nokia phone while I was out walking dog earlier. I thought I could look on it to find ICE information or other contacts who might know who the phone belongs to......but the keypad is locked. The...

I suggest you take the cell phone to a cell phone shop. They can remove the SIM card and use a SIM card reader to look at the stored names/phone numbers and might be able to identify a home phone number. The number may also match the area where near where the cell phone was found. If so then ring this number and hopefully return the phone to its owner.
Good luck with your search, this is a neighbourly thing you are doing.

I found this phone and it had a code on it , so I tried putting a random code and it completely locked and it says to put in a google account but since I'm not the owner I don't know it.

Turn the telephone in. It belongs to someone. Preferably - turn it in to the service provider who is at least in a position to return it to the person who lost it. If this WERE your phone, would you expect any less?

Then, you should file a police report outlining what you did so if the person calls the police in your area, the police have some idea where the phone is. Would you expect anything less.

Why keep it anyway, you cant work it.

Thanks in advance for being honest.

Found a phone

Best thing for you to do is return it to the carrier with which it is currently used. Some poor owner is sweating bullets that a honest person will find it and return it instead of getting ripped off by some low life.

If you turn it in to the cops, some one will buy it and come back here and try again to rip off some poor owner.

Turn it into the carrier where it had the best chance of being returned to the person who paid for it and whose important information is stored on it.

Be the 'good guy' now.

Thank you

I found this fone it says IPhone is disabled

If this is a lost phone, it's possible that the owner disabled it and is the only one who can change it's status. If it is not yours, I would try returning it to an AT&T store to see if they can reunite it with it's rightful owner.

SGH A 707 SIM card problem

At this stage, call AT&T is probably the best bet. Call back until you get a more knowledgable technical support rep.

Samsung SGH a-707 has password that I don't know. I do I get past this?

Having a similar problem...i went into the store and they tried replacing my sim card but since my kid put the password and then forgot it, the sim card solution did not help. You might try going into a cingular store and let them try to unlock it. Seems there are a few tricks to be tried, but i am calling samsung for help.
