Can anyone fix the network in my SAMSUNG cellphone to work in the Philippines?

Question by Nina: Can anyone fix the network in my SAMSUNG cellphone to work in the Philippines?
I have a Talk n Text SIM card, but the network isn’t working when I use it on my AT&T Samsung cellphone. Does anyone know how to arrange the settings on my phone so that I can text here in the Philippines?

Best answer:

Answer by Chris J
if you unlock your phone to all networks you will find that you can text, freeing your phone up

Unlock Codes
Code 1: *7465625*28782#
Code 2: *7465625*28638#

Entering Code instructions
1. Remove SIM Card from handset
2. Enter Code 1 into the handset
(Your handset will display “auto subset lock activated”)
3. Enter Code 2 into the handset
4. Your handset should now be unlocked.

a) Enter an alternative network SIM card into your Samsung and reboot.
b) The new network should be displayed in handset window.
c) If the process is repeated with yet another alternative network SIM card, you may be requested to input a security or pin code to enable the use of the new SIM card.
d) Enter 00000000 (8 zeros) which should enable the SIM to be accepted.
e) Finally once again enter 00000000 (8 zeros) and this should permanently unlock the Samsung.

Final alternative Solution if the above fails

Unlock Code

Entering Code instructions
1. Take out the SIM card from the phone and switch the phone on.
2. Enter the unlock code into your handset.

Then enter…
#7465625*638*00000000# (to permanently unlock the phone)
