Pin defaults are usually 0000, 1234, 9999 or the last four numbers of your phone #.

You can also access a settings menu via ##3282# on this model to retrieve the pin if I remember right but don't quote me on that.

Unless you are looking for a network unlock code, in that case ask Telecom nicely or pay for one online.

Head into a Telecom store and it can be sent away to be unlocked, $30 from last memory.

Before you do, try the last 4 digits of your mobile number which is the default.

It doesn't matter if you have the programming codes... Samsungs don't let you enter the last required digit to get into the programming if it's locked, even the hard reset code can't be entered.

As mentioned before it looks like $30 and a trip to a Telecom store
