    Samsung A777 - unknown phone lock code

    bought a used samsung sgh-a777 slider phone from ebay. the seller neglected to do a master reset and does not know the phone lock code when it was sold to me. i basically got a full refund but told to keep the phone. so now i have a free phone that i cant use.

    does anybody know any methods to accessing the hidden menus or doing a master reset? i dont have a usb cable so i cant sync it up to a PC and play with it. any ideas??? my only other option is to call samsung support tomorrow.

    thanks.

    To reset the handset, to the factory default settings, follow the steps below:

    While in standby mode, press the right soft key for Menu
    Select Settings (9)
    Select Reset Settings (8)
    Highlight, using the navigation keys, any of the following:
    All: Sound Profile, Display, Phone, Alarm and Bluetooth settings will be returned to default values
    Sound Profile Settings: Only sound profile settings will be returned to default values
    Display Settings: Only display settings will be returned to default values
    Phone Settings: Only phone settings will be returned to default values
    Alarms: Only alarm settings will be returned to default values
    Bluetooth: Only Bluetooth settings will be returned to default values
    Press the ATT Symbol key to check the box(es) of the desired Reset Settings
    Press the left soft key for OK to set the Reset
    Enter the password, using the keypad, default password is “0000”
    Press the left soft key for OK
    If prompted, Enter the password again to confirm, using the keypad
    Press the left soft key for OK
    Press the left soft key for Yes to reset the handset's settings to the factory defaults

    i cant access the menu system. the phone lock option is enabled and the code is not any default codes.

    what other option is available? i can only turn the phone on and reach the screen asking for the password.

    I'm not familiar with this phone, but this is what I would do:

    1. Get a USB Cable (eBay has good generic cables)
    2. Find the USB drivers (probably from the samsung website)
    3. Install drivers
    4. Connect phone
    5. Determine the COM port (Device Manager)
    6. Link to the phone using a CDMA software (CDMA Workshop)
    7. Toss the 16-digit password at it (might be samsung default)
    8. Set the phone's user lock to OFF
    9. Change the user lock passcode
    10. send a reset command
    11. enjoy your phone


    Sorry for being vague in the instructions, I'd attempt the first couple steps then PM me if you need more clarification.


    EDIT: After googling that phone, I found out it's a GSM (SIM card) phone... doubt I can be of much help here....

    thanks anyway for the advice.

    i went ahead and bought a usb cable for it. i've done mods to previous motorola phones and hope its a similar type of thing. if i can reflash the firmware, i can essentially do a hard reset and hope it works.

    besides PC studio for drivers, what kind of software can i use to hack the samsung a777?
