I have bought a phone on eBay to find out that the phone doesn't work with using the internet and data from a ATT&T phone to another carrier, I sent a email over to the seller to ask the questions i have been spending hours to figure out what the proper way to unlock the phone.
you first want to turn off the phone, have the Sim card in place, power off and turn on phone.
At the home screen type #7465625*638*
another screen will open NCK code for ATT&T (8 digits) is: 93924195 then press okay. this will unlock the phone. You only have 5 tries before the phone is locked up that you have to send phone back to Samsung to get them to do the unlock at no charge. Just have to get a repair ticket number from 1-888-987-4357.
Remember if your looking to have a 3G phone off eBay the phone needs to have the carrier of the service provider so you can have internet access on the phone. t What i am wanting this for is using it on the net which i am unable to acheive.
If anyone is looking to buy a phone I have the AT&T Black Jack 2 phone for sale with carrying case, phone charger car charger, data cable with CD, 2 cables to hook up your wired headphones. If anyone is interested in purchasing this please email me at Randy_edm@shaw.ca
I'm sorry if I'm not supposed to post this. I apologize, I'm just trying to help.
I got my BJ II yesterday from AT&T and I already had the unlock code after I called their International Customer Care. The code I was given (after I gave them the IMEI #) was correct, but the instructions from the tech support were wrong. Here are the instructions:
Once you call the International Customer Support and got you unlock code, follow this:
#7465625*638* (from the main screen as if you dial a #),
Second, enter the given unlock code,
then just press ok.
PS: The instructions given from AT&T say to remove the SIM card first. Here is the message I got when I tried that without the SIM card "SIM Failure Error Happened". You have to do that with the SIM card installed.
This is the message I got with the SIM card installed "Successfully Disable Locking Status"
Have a good one.
