How remote Unlock by Code Works
- Enter *#06# into your Samsung A197 to get the phone's IMEI number. Do not use the IMEI number from the sticker underneath the battery or from the retail packaging as it might be incorrect. Enter that number in the "IMEI" field on the order form.
- Determine the wireless network your Samsung A197 is locked to and enter it in the "Network" field. If you are the first owner of the phone it is the wireleless provider you bought the phone from. Otherwise look for a start up logo, APN, WAP or GPRS address that can give you a clue about the origin of your Samsung A197 cell phone
- Enter *#7465625# to determine if you have any extra locks enabled. In most cases there will be only NCK lock enabled. If your phone has other locks enabled (SPCK, SCK, Master lock, etc) you have to remove them in order to completely unblock the phone. For example phones locked to Fido Canada usually have SP (Service Provider) lock.
