    UPDATED!!!

    Hello everyone, I have found the solution to unlocking you Samsung Moment in event of a lock out (not referencing unlocking to switch carriers)... This refers to a lock out...

    Incorrectly enter the wrong pass code enough times, your phone now ask for an email address and password? Says your info is invalid... Called Sprint but they're no help (I know, I've been there)...

    I messed around with it and figured out a solution to regain 100% total access and unlock your phone completely so you can access it and take full control again... Put things back to completely the way you had them entirely before your lockout... It'll be exactly the same as it was before you locked yourself out. No flashing, no restoring factory settings, no lost data or apps, no hassle, same phone... Just the way you had it!!!

    Sprint still doesn't even know how to fix this... but I do!

    www.momentunlocked.com

    I ask for $5 to use my development to unlock your phone. Small fee to avoid a major headache. I have personally done this and know it works. I am a legit person, this is not spam! I even leave contact info on my site to reach me at. Payment made through paypal to ensure satisfaction or money back, though I guarantee that anyways!

    I WILL NOT TURN MY BACK ON ANYONE!!! If you really can not afford $5, maybe we can work out something smaller, even if I have to help for free... I guess this really means consider the $5 a donation...

    After you consider my costs (phone calls, around the clock customer service with 24 hour guaranteed response time, web costs, etc...) $5 is not that much...

    The Moment lets you log in via your gmail account if you get locked out.

    I am well aware the process...

    If I am not mistaken this is the order it goes down

    5 incorrect attempts
    30 second lock out
    1 more attempt--- incorrect/ or opt to "forget pattern"
    enter email account and password to regain access...

    correct?

    Except some moments are buggy and dont register your information, and though you type in the gmail account info you set up with it when you initially registered your phone, it says invalid... It happened to me... This doesn't apply to everyone, but do a search in google "locked out of my samsung moment". it is a common problem many are having... I have found the solution.

    Call sprint ant ask them, this is a major issue many moment users are experiencing, and their answer.... restore factory settings by flashing the phone, or exchange for a different moment... possibly a refurbed one... No good... hassle...

    I figured out something Sprint doesn't know about yet.... I can help those of us who have these buggy phone...

    I locked myself out and could not get back in for the life of me... I entered my gmail info and it said invalid... I called sprint... they said flash it....

    I did it on my own... Now I am offering my idea to those out there who don't wanna deal with the hassle and would rather give up $5...

    Ask around, its a common problem and I have yet to see anyone else post a true legit solution besides myself.... Not to say I am the only one who knows how...

    You know, I do understand the need for FEDERAL RESERVE DEBT NOTES, but money has never been the answer to the equasion, its just an illusion! What ever happened to doing something for the love of the community? Just imagine how much advanced in EVERYTHING would the world be everyone did something for the love of something? We'd be really a highly advance civilization!

    Or,,, I couldve simply sent you the PROMISE/DEBT note through PAYPAL, and then posted the result here! I dont even lock my phone, and have no need for this information. SHARING IS CARING!!!

    Would Sprint hadve charged you for relaying the information over to u? Could you have paid it? NO, you cant, its against FEDERAL LAW TO PAY ANYTHING, all you can do is PROMISE TO PAY,

    PS. Before the series that you have in your pocket, it used to say "THIS PROMISSORY NOTE IS LEGAL TENDER" hmmmmm.

    The process is something I designed, lke an App... It is called free enterprise. Some Apps are paid for.

    You could pay me, and then turn around and try to post your experience as to how it works on here for the love of your community, however, you will need more information from behind the scenes as to how it works. And even if you figure it out, good for you. While sharing is caring, that does not put food on my plate. Why am I not entitled credit for my discovery? Is 5$ really that much to avoid the hassle I am saving people?

    I don't mean to sound like I don't care, but consider my end of the deal here too. Why am I investing my time and even money to extend my help to everyone for nothing but the mere credit. Why does Sprint ask for money for your plan in the first place? things just have a cost. Money pays the bills. I have bills to0.

    If you absolutely can not afford $5, please contact me and we will work out a deal. I am not going to allow money to stand in the way of helping another... But do you disagree that if I have a product or service, I should be allowed to at least attempt to make something for it? That is how our, or at least my government operates... Capitalism. It's not like I am attempting to get rich quick... I have to monitor email, phone lines, etc almost constantly, make phone calls that cost me money. that's alot of care to help someone out for free. It takes time out of my day, and is not so simple as to just be posted up on the internet for all to read.

    There is nothing wrong with what I am doing, I am quite sure and infact am considering trying to take my idea to Sprint and asking them to either point business my way, or to sel my operation off to them. Surely Sprint would appreciate not having to exchange out new or refurbished moments for those who chose that option... Which by the way, if you were approached with getting a new phone or reflashing and startin from scratch with your currnt one, which would you choose? Probably the new phone provided its not a refurb... That has to be costing Sprint something... I would be wiling to bet they'd love to know that there is a solution out there, and would prefer someone makes a buck to fix people's problems of which they'd point them to me, then to hand out new phones in exchange.

    I am also willing to be bet people would rather pay $5 to save their current phone that has all settings and customizations, apps, etc., then to have to start over from scratch.

    In the end, I benefit you, I benefit Sprint, and I benefit me. We are not talking $50 or even $100 like some of those deductibles out there to cover the phone under warranty plan Sprint offers for replacing a phone. It is just a meisly $5, and I am offering up my complete customer satisfaction and service.

    i read somewhere when the screen turns on, there is a slight lag before the lock out screen pops up and sometimes its possible to hit the home key really quickly and get past the lock out screen.
    i never lock my phone with a pattern, only the menu key to prevent pocket dialing, etc. idk if this really works or not...

    on the philosophy here, i agree, entrepreneurs are great and so are charitable people!

    you are correct. By pressing home repeatedly while hanging up on a phone call, you can gain access to get inside your phone.

    While you do manage to get into your phone, it is not 100% (I question the true security of the phone (I use paid for version of lock 2.0 on top of the connect the dots lock))... You can enter your phone with this method, but as soon as it sleeps again or is rebooted, it re locks you out and you must call yourself, press home repeatedly while hanging up the call every time to get into you phone...

    A bit of a hassle no?

    While you can disable the pass code in settings after you gain entrance this way, you are not out of the woods. First off, now you disabled your phones security system, but making that irrelevant and more importantly, you are still locked out, even with the pass code disabled??? You still have to enter the email address... Even if you reset the pass code with in settings... for some reason this is not enough to demonstrate to the phone you are the hold of the password... the phone continues to request your email info to unlock the phone after it falls asleep or is rebooted... The only difference here is, with the passcode entirely disable while locked out, it will prompt you for the email info, but if you slide the keyboard out, it allows you to bypass that.... Now opening the keyboard becomes your way of unlocking your phone... You can gain entrance now a bit more conveniently, but now so can a thief... That is not a great solution... Your phone is now no longer protected by a password... and if you hit the end button to wake the phone it still asks for the email info...

    You can get by with this, but that would eat at me in time... And the security of your phone remains a risk... Plus I think your phone at this point isn't still 100% operationable...

    MY method now fixes the problem ENTIRELY...
    Bringing you back to how things were before the lock out even ever happened... Your security can be renabled again, and your phone will be fully functional.

    I have done extensive research on this, I have been in these shoes before, I have experienced the problem first hand... I have turned to Sprint and samsung for an answer... they had nothing to offer but restoring the phone back to factory settings or exchanging it for a new/ refurbed one...

    I have tried everything... I even figured out how to overcome this, with out losing anything on my phone, with out restoring factory settings, keeping my original phone. There is away to beat the system...

    P.S.: to quote: on the philosophy here, i agree, entrepreneurs are great and so are charitable people!

    I am both... I have stated, I am willing to work something out if you REALLY can't afford $5... I would rather you get in your phone and lose out on a portion of or the entire $5, then to turn my back to help someone... More or less really, you can truly consider the $5 a donation, is that a better way of putting it? Fair enough?

    All I ask is you turn people my way for help... I will honor my same system to them... $5, but if they can't afford it, no worries... We'll work through the problems... Just realize what I am putting into this... Phone call costs, web costs, my time, around the clock (except when I sleep) 24 hour max response customer service... All of that in mind, $5 is not alot...

    In the end, the National Debt still rises (at 15 trillion now), and we still are circulating DEBT, the CORPORATION acting as your GOV still tax you DEBT on your DEBT, and alot of our voluntary action will become MANDATORY, kinda like here, you couldve Volunteered the info for FREE, but because you have other obligations, volunteering isnt really in your best interest, because you need food too

WTF?? I use paypal to both send and receive payments.. you DO NOT need the last 4 digits to confirm payment.. I truly hope no one falls for this scammer

    I'm sorry, but I just can't let this go...
    You really do not understand economics do you? People are self interested, and they only act in order to pursue their self interests. Not everyone sets the resulting feeling of accomplishment associated with pure charity as a self interest. Many people see 'hard work + free distribution = no payoff' and you shouldn't blame them for it.

    And as far as your above statement "What ever happened to doing something for the love of the community?" goes, that was tried. It's called pure Communism, and it doesn't work. Everyone involved devolves into a freerider, because there is never any payoff to do otherwise. Not only does it not create an advanced civilization, it can actually hinder economic development to a growth rate of zero... THAT is what happened.

    Oh ok, now it makes sense... you are another z-freak that has been misinformed about the concept of money. Money is a representation of value and a medium of exchange. US dollars no longer contain a debt that is refundable for gold. They are in fact an exchangeable legal tender, a fiat money that is a method of communicating value of govt debt.

    Anyways, here's the part where you are really confused. I'm not sure I understand why you claim that you cannot pay for items using debt? Just so this won't drag out into a drawn out discussion, here's an accurate representation of how it works from your debt perspective approach:
    1) The govt prints the money ($20) and declares it legal tender, a debt that they will owe with a value of $20.
    2) You work for the govt and they give you the $20, because you both have reached an agreement that your services held a value of 20. You now hold a debt instrument, which is an asset to you.
    3) I mow your lawn, you then pay me the $20 in debt that you owned because you feel my services had a value of 20. Meaning, I now own that debt that previously belonged to you. You could have paid it back to the govt for one of their services, and they would have reclaimed that debt on the spot as they promised. But rather, you transferred it to me. *Keep in mind that you did not issue new debt, you merely transferred debt that you previously possessed. And you did IN FACT pay me using the govt's debt, you yourself are not indebted to me.
    4) I take that $20 and pay the govt for highway construction (of course this is just a simplified view of a tax). In doing so they recalled that debt that the govt previously issued, and they are no longer required to honor it (b/c they now own it).

    The moral of the story is that owning debt is in fact an asset (the same as gold, the same as a microwave, the same as anything that contains value) and also functions as a medium of exchange... and medium of exchange can be used to pay for things on all govt and intermediate levels. Why you believe that debt is not an asset is beyond me. And if you do so in fact believe that, then give me all of your money, because you have nothing to lose according to your view that it is only an 'illusion'.

    P.S. an accurate portrayal of your story would be "Ex: When you go to the store and buy a $5 sandwich, you are paying for the sandwich with a promise from the govt that they will grant the holder $5 in value. Therefore, the store accepts the govt's PROMISE to exchange products/services valued at $5. You no longer owe the store because they have discharged the sandwich in exchange for the govt's promised value!"

    And 1 more thing. The govt is not a corporation. You can always choose not to consume the services and pay a corporation.:eek:


    I completely agree.;) It appears that he's looking to gather a bunch of vital info from Moment users and then suddenly clean house and vanish.

    yeah.. you're missing the part about how he needs to gain access to your email account, also giving him access to all your contacts plus access to all email that may be in your inbox in an attempt to steal identities..

    I think this thread's gone about as far as it can. I'm closing it but leaving it up so that users can decide for themselves if they want/need to pay for the 'service'.

    To the OP: Android Forums is not in the business of providing a free advertising platform. Please bear this in mind in future
