Here is your few unlocking code for your Samsung phone. Try it.

*2767*3855#
or
*2767*637#
Customer: replied 6 years ago.
Those do not work. When prompted to enter the lock code, the * and # XXXXX are greyed out and unavailable to be used.
Expert:  birtz replied 6 years ago.
Please try one more time. use 4 times 0.

" 0000 "

Let me know.
Customer: replied 6 years ago.
That code didnt work either. It said incorrect code.
Expert:  birtz replied 6 years ago.
I have no more default code for you handset. I suggest you visit Samsung shop then will reset the code by using there company mother code. 90% chance free of cost. Because if you try more code then its may corrupt the operating system.
Customer: replied 6 years ago.
How do I find the mother code? Also, I am willing to continue trying to use suggestions froom you. I already have a new phone but want to erase some info off of the old one before I give it away. If you have more codes that may or may not corrupt the OS, I am fine with trying them.

Are you able to go in menu option? I think your are not. Let me know.
Customer: replied 6 years ago.
No I am not able to acess the Menu. And I believe you are referring to the screen lock, I need the actual phone unlocked as in a security lock code.
Expert:  birtz replied 6 years ago.
Hmm its mean you made the door lock. After break that you may able to use MENU right.
Try last chance. If you success then fine other wise i have no more codes. Only the way to go for resetting the phone from the samsung service center. Press Call Key & The top side lock key at time for 4 sec and see any chances or not.
