Hello there,

I've been working hard to find a Professional to assist you with your question, but sometimes finding the right Professional can take a little longer than expected.

I wonder whether you're ok with continuing to wait for an answer. If you are, please let me know and I will continue my search. If not, feel free to let me know and I will cancel this question for you.

Please note, I am just a moderator for this category, I can only try and find experts to help, I can't answer the question itself.

Thank you!

Hello. My name is ***** ***** I may be able to help you with your problem. However, I will need more information.
I think you are asking for a code to unlock your SCH900 smartphone from another wireless network, so that you can use it on your new network.
You have a Galaxy S5 now on your new network. Who is your new wireless network provider?
You cannot use both phones at the same time on one mobile telephone line, but you may be able to transfer your sim card from one mobile phone to the other. Is this what you are asking about doing?
If you lost your new phone, you would have to get another sim card from your wireless network provider, but your old phone would be ready, because you unlocked it ahead of time. Is this what you want to do?
I can help you with that. I need to know which websites you have already tried to purchase unlock codes from, and why they did not work. I must tell you that your phone has a limit on how many unlock codes can be entered, and you may have already exceeded that limit.
How many unlock codes have you already entered into your SCH900 smartphone?

when i bought my S5 i received an 02 sim worth £10 free i have a contract with orange (ee) on my S5 and wanted to activate my old shu900 as a spare using the pay as you go sim 02in it , i went to an independant shop and paid £20 to have the shu900 unlocked. he gave me the unlock code and said i needed a freeze code before i could use the unlock code and to get it from my provider which has always been orange , they said to get in touch with samsung i have only ever used samsung mobiles,but loyalty to both companies has gotten me nowhere only costly calls with no results any further info you require i will try and provide

The freeze code that you are looking for is the unlock code. You must purchase the unlock code online by using your imei number. When you boot up your phone with the pay-as-you-go sim card inserted, the phone should ask you for the Network Lock Control Key.

Expert:  Joel Kalman replied 3 years ago.
Does your sch900 phone ask for a code? What happens when you type it into your phone?
Please show your unlock code by typing it here.
