Locked as in Sim lock or unregistered on network? -- If sim lock, just get a code to unlock, if sim unregistered it's possible it's blacklisted due to it being wrote off on insurance.
// Nexus 5 (D821) // Liquid // UBER //
// Note 3 (SM-N9005) // AOSP ROM of variety // Lean or temasek's Kernel // - Dumped. No more Samsung

Asking for unlock pattern or code. Phone is not sim locked or anything like that. i don't have simcard installed.

Ah OK, I'm not gonna ask questions, nor am I gonna go into detail about it as it's against forum rules. - Have a read about how to flash stock ROM via Odin and follow that. If the original owner has a Samsung account tied to the device and reactivation lock is on it won't work as it's a security feature.

I called old owner but he claimed he doesn't remember the code. maybe that was the reason for "dropping" it..
