How to Unlock a Samsung Omnia II Phone


The Omnia II is a high-end smartphone developed by Samsung that is marketed as a competitor to other feature-rich phones, such as the Apple iPhone and the Motorola Droid. The Omnia II offers a wide array of features, such as an integrated MP3 player, microphone, quality camera, large touchscreen, and Bluetooth connectivity, and is available on several different carrier networks. Most carriers only offer an Omnia that has been flashed and locked to its own network, making it impossible to use it on a different network until the phone is unlocked. Fortunately, it is relatively simple to unlock the Samsung Omnia, and, once unlocked, you’ll be able to use it on any network that supports its GSM radio type.

Step 1: Open your Web browser via either your smartphone or your laptop and type “cellunlockcodes.com” into the URL field, then press “Enter.” This website contains hundreds of cell phone unlock codes that can be purchased, including the code for your Samsung Omnia II.

Step 2: Scroll down the page. Locate and click the “Unlock Your Samsung” link. Fill out the phone details for the unlocker. Choose your carrier from the first drop-down menu on the page, such as “AT&T;,” then wait for the page to automatically forward to the next item. Enter your personal information, including your payment info, into the field. Make sure your phone number and email address are correct, since you’ll need that information to receive the unlock code. Submit the form.

Step 3: Take the battery cover off the back of your phone, then remove the battery. You should see the SIM card, which is a little plastic card located within a slot. Take the SIM card out carefully, then replace the battery and battery cover. Turn your phone on. Open the dial pad as if you were making a phone call, and enter the code you received during Step 2. On most Omnia II phones, the code is: #7465625*638*#. Press “Call” as if you were placing a call. The Omnia will process the unlock code and unlock itself.
