A) There is NO unlock code (dunno why you guys keep calling it a code...)
B) The unlock is done OTA
C) So far, no one has figured it out
D) You can activate the phone abroad using some clever tricks in DFS cdma tool, but this does nothing for GSM/unlock.

Also where did you hear it was stored in nv ram? Not discrediting you, but I've done FULL backups of nv items up to 65535 and restored them to another phone without any success. Unless it's in one of the handful of locked nv items...

Perhaps you can take a look at this [GUIDE] SUCCESS!!! SIM-Unlock Sprint XT1056 (Sim-CRACK) and see what can be done, if at all possible. Just a thought...

Talking SMG900P sim unlock work around
Hello,

I have managed to unlock my SM900P (Sprint Galaxy S5) to use my Verizon sim. I only have 3G capabilities at the moment, unless someone knows how to activate the 4G or LTE. I will post what I did to get my Verizon sim to work. The phone is rooted and has the MOAR rom installed.

Here are the tools that I used (AND BIG THANKS to all the developers that helped)

BusyBox Free
SuperSu
Shortcut Master

Please be patient with me. I am about to go through my phone and post the settings I made step by step.

Thumbs up
I just created a bounty thread for SIM unlock Sprint Galaxy S5(SM-G900P). Support it, if you are interested. That might help things to get little speed up.

Hi, is your unlock mode only for verizon or other carriers?

Please can you show me how you did it?


Thanks,

I´d like to know:
1) what is this activation process? is it really necesary? I ovbiously cant do it from Argentina.
2) i need to use the phone with an argentinian carrier, gsm. is there any process to allow it? Currently the phone says "Invalid SIM Card".

Thanks in advance!

@aalyatim found a solution for international unlock of the Sprint galaxy S5 (g900p).
He says that this method will work for other Sprint models also. (Mega, Note 3, L720T)
Depend on the bounty amount, he will release the solution...
Here is the SM-G900P bounty thread.

Baja la aplicacion SSU.APK e instalalo en tu celular, lo abris, le das a Unlock y listo ya esta desbloqueado.

Aca esta la info en ingles http://forum.xda-developers.com/spri...print-t2928250
