    Where can I get an unlock code to unlock my Sprint Galaxy S4? I just want to use my phone internationally while I travel, and Sprint won't unlock it.

    Can't unlock it with code. When you enter an unaccepted Sim it doesn't ask for code. It just prompts that the sim is invalid. If you are on 4.3 as far as I know, there is nothing.

    Sprint used to unlock phones... what changed? I remember when I had the BlackBerry 9630 and then the 9930 that all I had to do was call in and have them provide me the unlock code and they did so with no convincing!

    Straight Talk is telling me that if I install their Sim card it will work. Was thinking of spending 50 bucks and giving it a try. Its still CDMA.

    Apparently if the phone has been on the account for 90 days, you should be able to get it unlocked by calling 888-226-7212 option 2.

    After calling them, this is the email confirmation they sent me...



    Hello dimm0k

    This email is intended to confirm that Sprint has successfully processed the unlock request for your Samsung Galaxy s4 Device on phone number: xxxabcdefg

    In order for the device unlock to be finalized; the device has to be connected to the CDMA Network or a stable Wi-Fi data connection. Once the device unlock is complete, you should be able to insert the International SIM card and use the GSM Network.

    If the international SIM card is not working, insert the original SIM card and follow these steps once you are connected to the CDMA Network OR a stable Wi-Fi data connection: go to Settings > More (tab) > System Update > UICC unlock. This will initiate the necessary update, then you can insert the international SIM card again and the network should change to GSM.

    If you have any additional questions or concerns please contact Sprint World Wide care at 888-226-7212.

    Thank you,

    Eric T.

    Here's the bottom line:

    Sprint will unlock devices, if capable, for qualified customers, but the phones will only work in other countries. There are software blocks in place to prevent domestic usage.

    There are always ways around that though. I'm available to help anyone who wants to get their S4 unlocked.

    My phone is a samsung galaxy s4 mini on sprint. SPH-L520 on 4.2.2 firmware. I have rooted my phone and i have developer options. my app root checker said it is successful. Now i downloaded RegionLockAway and i go through all the motions and RegionLockAway tells me the patch seems to be fixed and reboots. but when it comes on instead of being unlocked it just says Invalid Sim Card. I have an ATT sim that I am trying to use. please help. thank you.
