It is the perfect smartphone for a first time user or someone looking for a mid range smartphone on a budget. This article will teach what to do when you get an Unlock code for a Samsung Admire
Because each version is made exclusively for one network service provider, this means that each model has a SIM lock placed on it to prevent it being used with a SIM card from any other mobile network. But nowadays SIM locks don’t have to stop you from having freedom of choice in regards what network you choose, as its easier and faster than ever to unlock a mobile phone, and in most cases is free. Unlocking your mobile phone is completely legal, and can increase the resale value of the handset, so what reason do you have not to unlock it?!
To unlock your handset, you will need to obtain an unlock code, specifically made by the manufacturer to enable the SIM lock to be removed. If you are a long term customer of your current network (in this case Metro PCS or Cricket Wireless), you can simply ask them for the unlock code, and they should provide it for free. You could even go in store and ask them to perform the unlock process for you.
If your network service provider will not give you the code, you can get the code from a independent mobile unlocking service. These are mainly found on the internet, although some have small independent shops on many high streets. You will need to pay for the unlock code from these services, but it is usually a very small fee. You will also need to purchase a SIM card that is not on the network the phone is currently locked to. These cost next to nothing and will often be available from the unlocking services website or store.
When you get your Unlock code for your Samsung Admire, here’s what to do
Once you have your unlock code and new SIM card, simply follow these steps to unlock your handset.
1. Insert the new SIM card into your handset and turn the handset on.
2. The handset will show you one of two messages; either ‘Enter Password’ or something similar asking for a pass code of some form, or ‘Incorrect SIM inserted’ or something similar alerting you that the SIM inserted is not accepted.
3. If you are shown the password message, then simply input the unlock code you have. If not asked for a password, enter the following code followed by the unlock code you have, and follow the unlock code with the # key: #7465625*638*(unlock code)#
Once you have performed these three simple steps, your Samsung handset is unlocked for use on any network!
