To unlock the screen of your ITEL phone, wake the screen (by swiping or pressing the Power button) and then enter your password, code, or PIN. If you're unable to unlock your phone, try signing in with your Google account (for Android 4.4 and below) or using Android Device Manager (5.1 and up). If neither of those methods work, performing a factory reset will help you regain access to your phone.

Simple and easy way to remove a network blockade from your phone Itel A14. The service works for all networks from all over the world. The process is easy, fast, and 100% secured. If the device asks for an unlock code it can be unlocked.
If you have a SIM card PIN enabled on your phone to access data on the SIM card, but you repeatedly enter it incorrectly, the SIM card may lock you out from further attempts. You can reset the SIM card, using what's called a personal unlock code, or PUK code, which you can usually obtain from your phone carrier.
You can set a SIM PIN code to prevent people from accessing data such as contacts stored on the SIM card without your permission, even if they physically have your phone and then steal the card. This is separate from a passcode or a biometric lock you might set on the phone itself, since it's designed to protect the data on the SIM, not the phone.
Once the SIM card is locked, you will need to use a separate code called a PUK code to unlock it. Your carrier can provide you with the PUK code for your SIM card. You can sometimes find this on your carrier's website after you log in, and you can usually also obtain it by calling customer service or taking the phone to a carrier store. Once you have the PUK code, you can enter it and reset your SIM PIN to one you know.
We would LOVE to provide you with a comprehensive list of the dozens of codes out there, but that would be an exercise in futility. These codes seldom work across different carriers, OSes, or phone models (or even on generations of the same model).
If you really want to try them out, your best bet may be to Google your phone's make and carrier + \"USSD\" for a tailored, comprehensive list. I attempted a number of codes using an iPhone SE (while trading out numerous carrier SIM cards) in addition to a Galaxy S5 and Galaxy S7 Edge running on AT&T. Some of them worked! Check out the list below for 13 codes that I can confirm worked on at least one device. Good luck and have fun!
You are getting network locked SIM card because your phone's network is still locked to the original network carrier. For the moment, your device can't be used alongside different SIM cards until it gets network unlocked by inserting 8 or 16 digits unlock code.
Before 2009, the code for unlocking Samsung mobiles was an 8 digit number. But after 2019 that changed. Now, Samsung uses 16 digit network codes. Some of the models require a defreeze code alongside the unlock code.
If you are getting the Invalid SIM card network locked SIM card inserted error message after changing your network provider, then it can be fixed pretty easily via a call to your previous service provider. They will provide you with an 8-16 digit code that will unlock the SIM card. But there are a few contract requirements that need to be met. Otherwise, they won't be providing you with the specific code. Here is the list of requirements:
There are also online services available with the capability of unlocking your SIM card. These sorts of services mostly use the IMEI number for unlocking smartphones worldwide. The service we are recommending here is known as Canada Unlocking. Canada Unlocking will provide the unlocking code via email. This is a very legal procedure, and the steps are also pretty simple. Here's how to unlock network locked SIM card inserted.
A SIM lock, simlock, network lock, carrier lock or (master) subsidy lock is a technical restriction built into GSM and CDMA mobile phones by mobile phone manufacturers for use by service providers to restrict the use of these phones to specific countries and/or networks. This is in contrast to a phone (retrospectively called SIM-free or unlocked) that does not impose any SIM restrictions.
Most mobile phones can be unlocked to work with any GSM network provider, but the phone may still display the original branding and may not support features of the new carrier. Besides the locking, phones may also have firmware installed on them which is specific to the network provider. For example, a Vodafone or Telstra branded phone in Australia will display the relevant logo and may only support features provided by that network (e.g. Vodafone Live!). This firmware is installed by the service provider and is separate from the locking mechanism. Most phones can be unbranded by reflashing a different firmware version, a procedure recommended for advanced users only. The reason many network providers SIM lock their phones is that they offer phones at a discount to customers in exchange for a contract to pay for the use of the network for a specified time period, usually between one and three years. This business model allows the company to recoup the cost of the phone over the life of the contract. Such discounts are worth up to several hundred US dollars. If the phones were not locked, users might sign a contract with one company, get the discounted phone, then stop paying the monthly bill (thus breaking the contract) and start using the phone on another network or even sell the phone for a profit. SIM locking curbs this by prohibiting change of network (using a new SIM).
A handset can be unlocked by entering a code provided by the network operator. Alternative mechanisms include software running on the handset or a computer attached to the handset, hardware devices that connect to the handset or over-the-air by the carrier. Usually the unlock process is permanent. The code required to remove all locks from a phone is referred to as the master code, network code key, or multilock code. If the phone is network locked it will typically display one of the following messages: SIM network PIN blocked, Enter lock PIN.
The unlock code is verified by the handset and is generated by the manufacturer, typically by an algorithm such as a one way hash or trapdoor function. Sometimes big telecom providers change the original factory unlock codes as an extra layer of security against unlocking services. For various big brands such as Samsung and Motorola there is no algorithm but just a random code generator where the unlock codes are programmed in the phone itself and then saved in a big database managed by the manufacturer. For the other brands where the unlock codes are still based on algorithms those are based on the IMEI number and the MCC code and have been reverse-engineered, stolen or leaked. Some handsets can be unlocked using software that generates an unlock code from an IMEI number and country and operator details using the algorithm specific to the handset. Other manufacturers have taken a more cautious approach, and embed a random number in the handset's firmware that is retained by the manufacturer and the network on whose behalf the lock was applied. These handsets can still be unlocked by online services that have access to either inside people with the manufacturer or with the telecom networks, or they need to be connected to the computer with a cable where specific software will bypass the security and SIM-unlock the phone. Sometimes this is done by advanced calculations to bypass the security the official way and other times using exploits or overwriting parts of the firmware where the lock status is kept, and often even recover a phone that is bricked or completely damaged in the software sense.
Most handsets have security measures built into their firmware that protects them from repeated attempts to guess the unlock code. After entering more than a certain number of incorrect codes the phone becomes frozen. This is a state where the phone will display a security message that the phone needs a service. Older phones could no longer be used at all at this point, however modern smartphones often keep working with the original SIM but require extra work to then unlock them correctly. In extreme situations physical access to internal hardware via in-circuit debugging may be utilised (for example, via JTAG headers on a circuit board). Such access may be required to modify initialization software used for booting.
A hardlocked phone is one in which a telecom provider has modified the firmware on the phone to make it impossible to manually enter the unlock codes in any way. The only solution to SIM-unlock such a phone is to change the firmware to a firmware which has not been modified by any telecom provider, a so-called \"unbranded firmware\".
Handset manufacturers have economic incentives both to strengthen SIM lock security (which placates network providers and enables exclusivity deals) and to weaken it (broadening a handset's appeal to customers who are not interested in the service provider that offers it). Also, making it too difficult to unlock a handset might make it less appealing to network service providers who have a legal obligation to provide unlock codes for certain handsets or in certain countries.
In some cases, a SIM-locked handset is sold at a substantially lower price than an unlocked one, because the service provider expects income through its service. SIM locks are employed on cheaper (pay-as-you-go) handsets, while discounts on more expensive handsets require a subscription that provides guaranteed income. Unlocked handsets have a higher market value, even more so if they are debranded. Debranding involves reflashing or replacing the firmware to remove the operator logo or any limitations or customizations that have been imposed on the handset by the operator, and is usually accomplished with software designed for a particular handset model, however most smart-phones can be debranded and unlocked solely with use of special software. 153554b96e
