    I purchased a Samsung R225 (T-Mobile) on ebay for use on T-Mobile. But when I turn it on, the first screen says "Phone is locked. Enter Password". Tried 0000, 1234, and 00000000 -- didn't work. Called T-Mobile, they suggested I call Samsung. Samsung said either send the phone to them or take it to a T-Mobile Authorized Store to have it "flashed". Took it to a T-Mobile store, they said the seller has to give us the password -- they can't do anything. Seller says they never set a password. This isn't a SIM lock, it is the phone.

    Any ideas?

    Thanks!

    Sometimes the lock password is the last 4 digits of the telephone number. Maybe asking the seller what the last 4 digits of his tele phone number was. Unless if its a brand new phone I have no idea.

    To unlock the sim for the Samsung R225,try the last four digits of yours (or the previous owners)social security number and press (ok). That should work.

    two words. Manual Bruteforce. What you need to do is do 0001 0002 0003 0004 etc etc, GL and have fun, maybe next time u should be more careful and buy local
