    Hi,

    About a year ago a friend gave me her old Samsung SGH-X426 when my
    phone died. This week I tried to make a change in the phone and
    discovered that the phone password is not set to the default 00000000.
    Someone must have changed it. When I asked my friend, she couldn't
    remember what the password was changed to.

    Is there some way to totally reset the phone, including its password,
    back to all the defaults? Otherwise I guess I'm stuck.

    Thanks!

    A quick call to the carrier, with a legal phone in hand,
    should get you what you want.

    Re: How to Reset Samsung SGH-X426

    Excuse me for butting into the thread, but I have a similar question.
    I am selling
    my Samsung SGH X495 T-Mobile To Go phone on eBay, including the SIM
    card.
    I called T-Mobile and they said they "took my name off the account." I
    also
    deleted all my contacts from the phone and the SIM. What else do I
    have to
    do to "clean" this phone? I just want to be sure the buyer cannot make
    calls
    of some evil nature and have them traced back to me.

    Finally, when the buyer calls T-Mobile to re-activate the phone will
    he/she get the
    remaining airtime? It's not very much, just curious.

    TIA

    Unfortunately Cingular was not able to help. I want to drop ATTWS,
    unlock the phone, and use it for a Cingular account. Cingular said
    it's fine with them but they cannot help me.
