I bought a code from a reputable unlocker for a Canadian SM-G900W8. However it is not working. I've tried twice. They say their codes are 99% accurate. Ive never had problems from them before.

Any insight?

Which unlocker service did you use? It could be that you gave them the wrong IMEI and the unlock code they provided you with does not apply to your device.

I gave the right IMEI.
I bought from swiftunlocks.com
I made a video and they are refunding me.

That's good to hear that they provide refund. Try this:

Good to hear you got it sorted out!
I have heard good things about cellunlocker.net and I have used them on multiple devices in the past. My friend has unlocked his S5 sucessfully using their service aswell.

I got the code from phoneunlockingshop.ca and the same problem happens. They guide me to do a factory reset and it works for me. You may do the same and try the code which you purchased recently
