How to Unlock a Samsung Phone From AT&T

by W. Nicole Barclay

Unlocking your Samsung cell phone will enable it to be used outside of the AT&T service. Not only will it function with the AT&T service, but with any other carrier and any other SIM card, anywhere in the world.

Step 1

Power phone off. Remove AT&T SIM card and insert any other SIM card from any other carrier. Power phone on.

Step 2

Wait to be prompted for a "Password." Enter unlock code.

Step 3

Note that if your phone says "Insert correct SIM card" your method is slightly different. Enter #0111* followed by your unlock code and the # sign.

Select "OK" if prompted to confirm. Restart phone to confirm unlocking.

Items you will need

  • Unlock code (purchased from local technician or online)
  • Non-carrier SIM card (any SIM not issued by the locking phone carrier)
