    No code network lock....
    So, I received a new phone from my brother cwhile I was in hospital when my old phone was destroyed in a car wreck which left me with 3 proplems.

    1st is, I can have a SIM card from the network it's locked to and any other SIM card.

    2nd problem is, I have to pay $28 USD to that network carrier. Thats approximately R300 ZAR, which I can't afford with medical bills.

    3rd problem I have is, it's a NO CODE lock, which means any code generator I want to try, won't even be of use.

    I absolutely hate the network it's locked to (MTN RSA), and that means that I can't have 2 of my preferred networks on the phone, and if I dare remove the MTN SIM card, it locks the phone completely, and tells me that the phone has been locked for reasons of safety, such as theft protection. Not even a factory reset works on this thing. Can anyone help me out, please?

    Time to get a new phone.
    If you do not have the credentials for the phone, yes, you will be locked out completely, with no work arounds

    Well, you might be right. New phone as soon as I can and this A01 will have to do as a contact phone at work since I work in construction and it can take a beating.

    I have worked around the apps that can't be moved to SD card, forced allowed it in Dev Options and storage issues are sorted out. it's just this damn network lock.

    If your Samsung phone is unlocked then you will be able to switch network, and normally retain your current phone number

    Honestly, I am not sure what you mean by "retain my current phone number", but what I do know is that, if I can unlock the phone, I won't have any pop-up broadcast from the carrier it's locked to, I won't have a issue with Network coverage in certain areas my company travel's for work, I won't have the occasional "Your device has been locked for purposes of Anti-theft protection" when it fails to read the SIM card from the locked carrier.

    I mean this is a pretty durable phone and I kinda like it, it also has nice graphics and a ultra wide screen when watching and streaming content. It's speaker is loud enough for me. The RAM it a bit of a let down, yeah, but hey, it does it's job rather well.
