Samsung: Entering your unlock code

There are three types of method for entering unlock codes on a Samsung phone.

The first thing to do is to turn the phone on with a non accepted SIM card. If the phone requests a network unlock code or Network SIM Unlock PIN, then use Method 1. If it doesn't, then try both Method 2 and Method 3.

Method 1 (most newer Samsung handsets)

  1. Turn on the device with a non accepted SIM card
  2. Enter the unfreeze code we sent you and press OK/Confirm (don't worry if the phone says it's incorrect, as it is still required)
  3. Enter the network unlock code we sent you and press OK/Confirm

Method 2 (some older Samsung handsets)

  1. Turn on the phone with a non accepted SIM card inserted
  2. Type #7465625*638*CODE# replacing CODE with your network unlock code

If you were emailed a service provider unlock code (if you are locked to a virtual network) then you may also need to enter #7465625*77*Code# replacing CODE with your service provider unlock code

Method 3 (some older Samsung handsets)

  1. Turn on the phone with a non accepted SIM card inserted
  2. Type #0111*CODE# replacing CODE with your network unlock code

If you were emailed a service provider unlock code (if you are locked to a virtual network) then you may also need to enter #0133*CODE# replacing CODE with your service provider unlock code.

Known Shortcuts:

  1. NCK = Network Control Key/ Network Unlock Code
  2. MCK = Unfreeze Code
  3. SPCK = Service provider code key
  4. The MCK which you should enter first is the defreeze code. The NCK which you should enter second is the Network code.
