[Q] Help- Sam Cap sudden lock
New to forum and not quite a noob at phones but close.
Samsung Galaxy Captivate Glide SGH-I927R GSM bought unlocked of Ebay from everydayhotdeals. Phone worked flawlessly on Straight Talk (ST), switched to ATT in Jan thru March and back to ST with no issues. Couple days ago I phone wanted me to "Enter Network Control Key Code"
. I don't have one and can't seem to get one. Ebay seller seems to be out of business on Ebay although a search I can still send him email which I did twice and no reply.
Andriod 2.3.5. Boots up with Rogers flash screen before the Galaxy screen.
unlockthatphone,com failed to get a code after 24 hours of trying. ATT said it's not a phone they ever had control over (no ATT logo on phone) so they cannot get me a code.
I have tried two ST SIMMs and an ATT SIMM with same message.
I am hesitant to go rooted and hacking but will do so if that's my only option
other than having a new paperweight.
I am sure I forgot some detail so please ask away. I tried to be concise but thorough.
