Unlock Samsung Galaxy J3 from network

Products & Services FAQs


Hi, My technophobic wife has been given an old Samsung and signed up to another network but when we try and start the phone it asks for a network unlock code. 


I have filled in the online form and also spoken to someone on Live Chat supplying all the information about IMEI code, serial numbers etc...but still have had no response. I tried filling in the online form again but now it won't recognise my email address as a real email. 


Can anyone help me?


Thanks in advance,
