hi guys,
havent been here much for a while but this question might jog someones response

My 13yr old son bought a samsung e250 from a classmate recently and its locked
to optus, we were under the impression it was already used on optus for some
time so any unlock fee would be nonexistent or small... But, it turns out the
seller only used a previous optus simcard and my son cant use his vodafone sim
in it without it requesting an unlock password and (you guessed it) optus,
having looked up the (old) number, want $80 to provide that <grrrr>

My son has recently done some exhaustive searching and found this information
for the e250 phone which I have posted at the bottom of this article:-

It seems some of this doesnt apply to the e250 in Australia, esp the unlock
options, so I am wondering if anyone has any updated info re this phone so
my son can use his vodafone card in it before christmass ?

In the info below there is reference to code or pw, would this be the thing
that optus would supply or some other item, such as maybe the pin that was on
the vodafone sim (if that sim was in the phone when we tried it) but it doesnt
work, so I am wondering about the context for that ?

Any replies wouold be greately appreciated,
email if you like to snipped-for-privacy@niche.iinet.net.au

Hope the information below is of help to others,

Thanks

Type *#9998*627837793# Go to the 'my parameters' and there you will find new
menu where you can unlock phone.(not tested-for

samsung C100)
To unlock a Samsung turn the phone off take the sim card and type the following
code *#pw+15853649247w# .
Java status code: #*53696# (Samsung X600)

If you want to unlock your phone put a sim from another company then type
*#9998*3323# it will reset your phone. Push exit and then

push 7, it will reset again. Put your other sim in and it will say sim lock,
type in 00000000 then it should be unlocked. Type in *0141#

then the green call botton and it's unlocked to all networks. This code may not
work on the older phones and some of the newer phones.

If it doesn't work you will have to reset your phone without a sim in it by
typing *#2767*2878# or *#9998*3855# (not tested)



cheers!

ps. I dont have a samsung at the moment, so I cant say for sure if this'll work,
just proceed with caution when doing them on your phone. (backup everything
first).

Unfortunately doesnt work for the Australian release of the e250, seems that
the unlock passcode is based on a formula from the IMEI number, there is a
suggestion of putting a sim in once its turned on, also unfortunately the
battery gets in the way of that - though only just, guess it might be possible
to tease it past but I dont think the SIM cards are flexible, the options seem
to be to pay the fee to optus or to an unlock place of some $5 or so but they
advertise $5 then you go to through the steps and it asks for more, I have
doubts it would work though and then faced with the time and hassle of getting
a paypal refund, arrrgh - I hate it when companies lock things up and cant just
use their merit and offer you a competitive rate, slimey lot these mobile firms.
