    Bought phone on ebay for my daughter and I can't figure out what the
    lock code is. The old number is erased. I tried the defaults and none
    work. Can someone help?

    Thanks

    When I get a customer on the phone in that situation, I refer them to=20
    the store for a software reflash. One of the store techs who frequent=20
    here mention a refurb tool. Whatever they do, that's probably your best=20
    option.

    By "the defaults", I'm assuming that includes:
    0000
    last 4 digits of the phone number
    last 4 digits of your SSN

    If that is the case, you'll have to take it into a store. Of course, you
    could always try emailing the former owner and asking for the lock code as
    well.

    I'm 90% sure there is a refurb tool for the 5250, but not 100%. If they
    can't erase (refurb) the phone, the will be able to read the lock code
    (they can do that for all phones that they support).

    If there is no wait, it should only take 10-15 minutes.

    All of that software stuff you can do to phones in a store, that's no=20
    charge, correct?

    That's what I've been told since I've been hired, but I'm interested in=20
    hearing it from the horse's mouth.

    No charge in the stores for updates and troubleshooting (and
    refurbishing).

    Some stores may have a long wait if it is available.
