    I tried the code to unlock a samsung x426, and it works. But i'm always asked to enter the sim lock "00000000" each time a put a sim card, even with the one of the original network locked to.

    Why?? can i remove that??

    I don't think you can remove that but you can change those numbers. It's a security feature.

    Gi,

    Can you tell me how you unlocked your X426 step by step. Also was it Firmware version 1.5 or 1.6

    Thank you

    Harry

    start your adventure with *#9998*3323# and any invaliud sim if you are version 1.5 and earlier, then select mallov fail and after reboot *0141# and hit call. It will then ask for your password which must be 00000000 (change it back and try again if you have changed it). If this doesn't work try #0111*password# where I don't know the password value yet as 00000000 tends to be wrong for ver 1.6 and if all else fails Cerebros is available on my site.

    Cerebros is an all in one IMEI-related tool. It can unlock and reset your IMEI and is available on a lot of unlock-related sites.

    I don't know about great, but the site is http://www.personal.psu.edu/users/s/j/sjs342 and if you want to skip the page info go right to Cellular.htm The program has simple selection menus for phone type, an entry area for IMEI (illegal to edit, know before using) and Unlock. You do need a cable, and I would suggest cable, but usb should work (don't know, never used one)
