Here's my problem:

I recently brought a SAMSUNG Galaxy S5 Sport SM-G860P by Sprint from eBay. The problem is when I asked the previous owner to help me with the unlocking,
the previous owner told me that he/she is unable to contact Sprint due to poor network reception in his/her area.

And so I thought I can simply unlock the phone by calling Sprint (the way I use to call Verizon when I purchased phones from eBay), but no.
Sprint required more information compared to Verizon when comes to unlocking the phone for you.

I told Sprint that I was unable to provide the account number, security PIN, etc. of the phone due to I brought the phone from eBay
& moreover is that I'm residing in Singapore (outside of the USA), but Sprint apologies that they're unable to further proceed with the unlocking service
due to lack of information.

Here's my request:

Would truly appreciate anyone could help me with my problem & willing to donate a small sum of funds via PayPal to whoever managed to unlock my phone.

My phone's information:

Brand & Model: SAMSUNG Galaxy S5 Sport SM-G860P
Carrier: Sprint, U.S.A
Phone Number: 321-987-2207 (previous owner Sprint's mobile number)
Phone's IMEI : 990004697012726
Phone's MEID : 99000469701272 (HEX), 256691517707344754 (DEC)
Phone's OS : Android 5.0 (lollipop)

Hey!

That is pretty lame that you can't unlock your phone.....I've been talking to my bro as he moved to Australia and had to get his phone unlocked. he said he just took it to town and got someone froma phone shop to do it, it did cost him about $200 for this though! But he did say that he was recommended a website that might be able to help. I've not used it before, but I've noticed a few other people have

Thanks for the reply. Unfortunately the website shared by you doesn't my phone (G860P)
and also turns out that the previous owner didn't finish clearing the outstanding payment
for this phone's account, therefore I'm unable to get the unlock code from Sprint's technical specialist.

No problem, sorry I couldn't help further.

I would suggest that you take it to a local shop to get it unlocked? They won't need to worry about the previous customer. It looks like the person that sold it to you probably didn't want to pay the rest of their bill. (or not, just my personal opinion) Anyway I really hope you'll be able to sort this out soon, it's not nice to hear people getting messed around.

Actually I can understand how the previous owner feel about Sprint's services. Firstly some sites where people mentioning that Sprint
doesn't have a good coverage in U.S and secondly their have poor customer service. So I wouldn't really wanna put the blame on the
previous owner.

But I'm really glad that at least someone respond to my call for help in technical assistance.

Well as long as you are happy! That's all that matters, I tend to not by second hand phones..........I used to work in a second hand company and the horror stories you'd hear on a daily basis!!

You can easily unlock oyur S5 Sport by using this app: http://forum.xda-developers.com/spri...print-t2928250
It also worked for me in Germany. Once you hit the Unlock button, reboot your phone. Dont forget to put the phone in GSM Mode in Mobile Network Settings !
enjoy
