How to Unlock Samsung Omnia and i780

Though thankfully, I don't have to use this because I have an unlocked Omnia, those of you who got their devices from your wireless carrier and want to free your Omnia so you can use another carrier's SIM card may want to head on over to Modaco and visit a tutorial about Unlocking your Omnia using just codes or "remote unlocking" your Omnia. According to the original poster, this "trick" was originally for the Samsung i780 but it should work on the Omnia. There are varying reports of success but most of the replies say that the trick worked on their Omnia. Try browsing through the thread to see if some problems have been answered.

Anyways, here's the gist of the solution for unlocking the Samsung Omnia or i780:


  1. First is to type *7465625*638*# to set
  2. You should type your MCC/MNC code which you can find here: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Mobile_Network_Code
  3. Type your new NCK (12345678), then select OK
  4. Type *#7465625 to check your lock
  5. And finally, type #7465625*638*# and type your NCK (12345678)
  6. Your phone now be unlocked
If you have any questions, feel free to register at Modaco, registration is free, and post your questions on the thread. Someone should be able to help you. I honestly wouldn't be able to help you since like I said, I haven't tried this method.

    You can get the details from the manual guide you received. I used this procedures for my friends mobile which was unlocked by mobile-code
    You can get the manual from service provider or from google.

    This guide is slightly wrong.
    The number on step 4 should have a # on the end!

    Thanks. Worked great on my Omnia i900. Had to figure out NOT to leave a gap between the MCC and the MNC codes.

    Brilliant! Unocked my UK i780 on the Orange network. However, there is an error on the instructions and figured out myself.

    after Type *#7465625 to check your lock - add a # after the number 5
