They wouldn't help me because I live in the USA , and thats where I bought my phone. Is there a way around this?
The link provided in the first post is to Samsung Canada webpage.
Just go to Samsung USA website and do the same thing... it should work.
Just unlocked my Freedom Mobile variant. From the time that I started the live chat to when I was sent the unlock code, the entire process only took about 15 minutes. What a gem I stumbled upon here, thanks OP.
You're welcome. Happy to hear that this worked well for you. Thanks for reporting back... it will encourage others to try as well.
Read the very first post on page 1 of this thread. Instructions are there to contact Samsung customer service online and ask for the unlock code.
The instructions are for Canadian users. The link takes you to Samsung Canada.
In yoru case, you gotta go to Samsung USA's customer service via call or online chat. Just navigate to chat with Samsung.com customer service rep and give it a go. Good luck!
