Unlocking Samsung Galaxy S7 SM-G930A


Unlocking Samsung Galaxy S7 SM-G930A

So I received instructions from AT&T to unlock my Samsung Galaxy S7 SM-G930A:


Unlock instructions:

1. Power off the device and remove the SIM card.

2. Power on the device.

3. Enter #0111*, the unlock code, and #. The device cycles off and back on.

Note: You are allowed five attempts to unlock before your device permanently locks to the AT&T network.


So, when I complete step 2 (power on device), there is nowhere to enter the stuff in step 3.  Am I supposed to open the phone dialer?  Because I did, entered the stuff, pressed dial, and nothing happened.  I'm wondering if I need to put in the new non-AT&T sim card before powering it back on?  Please advise.....

Hello @pladletuce.

That's a great question.

Power down your device > Remove ATT SIM > Insert New SIM > Power Device > Continue steps..

We are sorry for the confusion. Please let us know when you have successfully unlocked your SM-G930A!
