I got it to power up.
Went back to Sim-Unlocker Pro, Logged In, Clicked Repair Boot and pressed Pwr & Vol Down at same time for a few seconds. Phone screen then started showing Android Bolt. Then I charged phone cuz it was showing only 1%. But it still is not unlocked. Not asking for 16 zeros either. Service provider changed from DSH, DSH, DSH to XAA, XAA, DSH and when I put sim cd it says network locked.

Few days ago I went back and double checked drivers, developer options, etc
and tried Sim-Unlocker Pro again and this time it unlocked it. changed Service provider to
XAA, XAA, XAA. only thing is I have to key 16 zeros when I put in a NON-TMB sim card.
Haven't tested fully yet but seems to be working fine.

Samsung Galaxy A32 5G
My first free T-Mobile A32-5G was received in April of 2021 but the USB port loosened up so T-Mobile replaced it in March of 2022 but then that A32-5G locked up in September 2022 so T-Mobile replaced it again (all for free - by crediting back the $20 warranty fee each time the T-Mobile store charged when they handled the replacement).

Since the most recent issue was a bricked device (it would only boot into Odin mode or into the black screen that I call the "Samsung Knox" mode), and since I had USB Debugging turned on the entire time, if only I knew how to re-load the firmware, I might have saved the phone without needing to return it to T-Mobile.

To that end of saving the phone, I wrote this how to guide so that others (and myself in the future) have a step-by-step process for recovering a bricked phone.

Please add value to that thread so everyone benefits, where I hope it helps the OP here too.
