Leaked Samsung Galaxy S4 and S3 Unlock Code Online

By  | 

Samsung offer some very powerful handsets and among them is the Samsung Galaxy S4 and the S3. When purchasing a new device people often take them with a contract as they are cheaper, the downside is that the device is locked to that carrier. If you want to move it to a different carrier when the contract ends you have to unlock the handset and in the past this meant paying to do so. Now there is a leaked unlock code doing the rounds on the internet.

The leaked unlock code for the Samsung Galaxy S4 and S3 is also said to work on other Samsung devices, including the Note 4 and 3.

To start the unlock process all you need to do is turn off the handset and insert a new SIM card that is different to the carrier you were with. You then turn the device back on and go into the dial pad and type in *#197328640#. When you have done this you can then go on to check out the steps below to unlock your device.

Choose [1] UMTS > [1] Debug Screen > [8] Phone Control > [6] Network Lock > Options [3] Perso SHA256 OFF. At this point you should wait for around 30 seconds before heading back to the main menu.

When you reach the main menu you should see Network Lock and then you will have to choose [4] NW Lock NV Data INITIALLIZ. Once you have done this you will have a device that is unlocked and you should be free to take it to whatever carrier you want.

The unlock code is said to work with many of the Samsung handsets including the Samsung Galaxy S4, S3, Note 4 and Note 3, so give it a try.
