HELP PLEASE: Trying to unlock an old Samsung mobile phone

Found 28th Jun 2013
Does anyone know if there is a way to unlock a GT-S3100 for free?

O2 are asking for £15 and I have already tried these instructions which don't work:

Insert wrong simcard half way in, power on the phone.
With display showing insert sim,
fully insert the sim and enter EP2 full reset code *2767*3855#
Wait for 1 minute after phone reboots!

Phone should now be working with the wrong sim.

Now enter *7465625*638*00000000*00000000# Network locks personelized
Now enter #7465625*638*00000000# Network lock deactivated
Enter *#7465625# and see all locks are deactivated

Thanks everyone.

Steveo.

Thanks, is that three goes until the imei gets messed up?
No, one go and the imei get's set to all zero (if yours is one of the phone that happens on).

There's no way back from that. No UK network will allow a phone with an imei of all zero to connect, it's not valid here.

Thank you very much for the offer but she needs to keep the phone in her possession and won't use another one, even on a temporary basis!
