Unlocking Galaxy Nexus..nightmare

18 posts in this topic

Posted

Hey all,

I have been trying since Saturday to get my newly purchased Galaxy Nexus unlocked :'(

I bought it from eBay and it is locked to o2.

I did some googling and found samsungimeiunlock.com. I paid them for an unlock code that was promised from between 15 mins - 6hours on Saturday afternoon.

It is now Tues morning and still have no code and they keep telling me that everyone will have the same problem giving me an unlock code as it's Chinese New Year..

Does anyone know anything about that? or can anyone confirm they have used someone else successfully.

As i'm sure you can imagine it's sooo frustrating having this baby lying around all weekend and now for 2 days and not being able to get my sim working.

Thanks for your time and help all :)

Not sure you'll get much help as most people have probably got an unlocked handset already. Mine was from phones 4 u and I'm sure I saw quite a bit about 3's being unlocked as well. Failing that I guess most people have stuck with the carrier they bought it on. O2 should be able to provide an unlock code although costly I'm sure

As said, the devices should not be coming SIM locked as they're not Operator-specific. Nexus devices come free of Operator crap

I'm also waiting for the unlock code for 2 days now. Mine is locked to Vodafone... They told me the same thing... Chinese new year, prices going up, everyone on hold... They offered a refund, but i preferred to wait... They said everything is supposed to be back working on Friday... I really hope so...

Has anyone tried this? http://www.sammobile.com/unlock/

I am facing the very same problem with samungimeiunlock.com. Looks like we did not chose the right time to buy a locked Galaxy Nexus !

@geek78 : when did you make your order ? Was it this week or earlier ?

Thanks !

Then you've made your order before the problem appeared in China... I guess we will have to wait a few more hours.

@Geek 78 : tu as bien de la chance ;)

Just to make sure... I have sent an email yesterday to unlocking SPAM link removed.co.uk asking them if they are actually able to provide codes, but they did not reply.

I've had no problem getting my code from samsung-unlockers dotcom. My galaxy nexus was locked to 02 and they gave me the code in just over an hour, for the reasonable price of £13.19 (£10.99 is their advertised price, but this is before VAT).

Hello,

My GNex has a little problem about the unlocking, it was SFR locked, but as I bought it full price, I got the code immediately from SFR.

But now almost every time I reboot it, it asks me the unlocking code again ! That is very strange... has somebody got a similar issue and got it solved ?

I have the same problem too.

I went back to samsungimeiunlockers.com who told me that this is a problem with the galaxy nexus. It doesn't permanently unlock and you will keep ending up having to put the unlock code in, again and again!

WTF Samsung!

Man that is pretty crappy that some places are locking them :(

I got one in store from 3 and also one online from them and they are both unlocked and were got on contract.

Looking to sell the second one as it hasn't been used, I already have one that I've rooted and playing around with so no use having a spare unrooted device laying around

I unlocked my Samsung Galaxy Nexus which was locked to O2 using unlock code I got from Onlinegsmunlock.com . I received the unlock code along with instructions on how to use it within 24 Hrs . I followed the instructions and unlocked my Galaxy Nexus Successfully.
