For Samsung devices 2010 and older (Galaxy S and older):

Go to the dial screen on your phone, and press *#7465625#
 
A menu will be displayed that will resemble the following...

1. [ ] Network lock

* If your phone is rooted and/or using a custom ROM, please return your phone to stock original ROM. You are responsible for modifications to your phone, and rooted/custom ROM devices are known not to accept the codes initially. Once returned to stock original ROM, you may try the codes again.

There is an error with the Galaxy Note 3 where sometimes when you enter the code it will display "Sim Network Unlock Unsuccessful", when in fact the device was unlocked. Try pulling the battery and restart the phone, if the prompt for "Sim Network Unlock Pin" no longer appears, the device has been successfully unlocked.

Follow these steps carefully.

on phone keypad.   (CAUTION! This will reformat all your data!)

It will say "unsuccessful" again, don't worry!

6. Type the Unlock code (Network or NCK code) and hit Unlock button.

Now your phone is successfully unlocked!

*If this is not working, go to Solution #3

 

Solution #3

1. Turn off the Wi-Fi on your phone and then turn device ON without SIM card.

Once it's on go to phone dial screen and DIAL: *7465625*638*#
it will bring you to the NETWORK LOCK screen.

- in MCC/MNC field enter code for the service provider your phone is originally from (eg 31026 for T-Mobile USA)

check here for list of codes: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Mobile_Network_Code

*If your network has more than one mcc/mnc please try all of them this is very important

- in CONTROL KEY field enter the UNLOCK code
- hit OK
- you should get a message: LOCK SUCCESSFUL

Power phone down, insert SIM card you want your phone to work with and power on.

 

"Phone Freeze" message. - What do I do?
 
Phone freeze is a result of the incorrect code being inputted incorrectly too many times, which means your Samsung device is Hardlocked.  You will require a Defreeze code and a Network Code to Unlock your phone.

* If you received multiple codes from us in the format below, use the Phone freeze instructions above.

Example:

NETWORK=xxxxxxxx; PROVIDER=xxxxxxxx; SUBPROVIDER=xxxxxxxxDEFREEZE=xxxxxxxx


* If you received a Single code from us, you only have the network code.  If you are receiving the "phone freeze" message, you will require a Defreeze code from one of the manufacturer methods.  You can contact us directly regarding this.
 

How to enter defreeze code for "Phone Freeze" Samsung devices (only if your Samsung is hardlocked)

  1. Input a non-accepted simcard into the phone.
  2. Proceed to the dial screen.
  3. Enter the defreeze code (Freeze code) and press enter, or okay.
  4. The screen should now ask for the unlock code (Network Code).  Enter the 8 digit unlock code and hit enter.

OR

  1. Turn phone on with an unaccepted simcard
  2. Screen will display “Phone is freeze / SOS”
  3. Type the unfreeze code (Nothing will show on screen) 
  4. Hit the “Enter Button” 
  5. Phone will ask for the Network lock code
  6. Enter it as you have received it
  7. Phone will be unfreeze and unlocked

 I can make calls and text but I'm not getting internet/data service.

In this case you will need to adjust what's called the APN settings.  The APN settings vary depending on the service provider you are trying to use.  Please contact your service provider and they can assist you setting this up.  There is no separate unlock for data or internet.  If you can call or text, your phone's network is fully unlocked.


My phone is asking for the "PUK" or "Security Pin" or "Password".

If your phone is asking for one of the above, it is the Simcard personal password or phone security password NOT the Network Lock which we provide for you.  You can contact your service provider for this.  Once you bypass this, you can use the Network Unlock Code provided by us.
 

My phone seems to be unlocked but I'm not getting any signal.

First of all, we do request you contact the service provider to make sure after unlocking your device, your unlocked phone will be compatible on their network.  Not all GSM phones are compatible with any Network after unlocking it.  The unlocked phone must be able to support the Network's Frequency.  If you are unsure of this, please contact them regading this.

After unlocking your phone, please pull the battery for a couple minutes and then restart the device.  It may take a few minutes for your phone to pick up the new signal. Also go to your Network settings on your phone, and make sure the device can detect the signal from the simcard you are trying use.
