    I spoke with tmobile and have a unlock code for my samsung s3. I followed the given directions, but the screen to enter the code does notcome up as stated. Any help? I just opened an account and need to use my phone.
    Robert

    1. Broheem, I think you did that incorrectly. Call T-Mo and let them know you have fulfilled the contract on the device and you wish to unlock it. They will be able to send a remote code to the device (via IMEI number) wait a couple of hours and voila! Unlocky Pocky!

  2. RJ RJ

    Android MMS not working. Contacted CS. APN settings are correct.
