This is the real deal here folks! @stifilz unlocked my note 5 for me, it was fast & painless. Take you time & read his thread over & over so you don't miss any steps like I did. Lol He was super cool about it tho and with me being a developer, I felt kind of dumb for not being 100% ready. But I also had my other device hooked up for tethering which got in the way a bit. My donation will be sent. Thank you for taking the time to do this for free for others here that may not be able to afford it otherwise.

T-Mobile s7 edge I assume. Firstly I don't do this model. Secondly imei is internally blacklisted due to not paying off phone. You can get an unlock and use on non T-Mobile carrier or clean imei see eBay for these services

Stock, root, and Follow thread.
Don't mess with it next time.
Hopefully your imei is intact too

Greetings,

My phone once worked with the sim and now it says invalid sim. Do you think this have anything to so with network lock or sim lock or do you think the provider might have blocked the imei??

    Hi all.
    IMPORTANT S7 T-Mobile and S8 T-Mobile are Qualcomm based and MY METHOD DOES NOT WORK. I WILL UPDATE WHEN/IF IT DOES :)

    UPDATE 27.01.2018
    MAGISK........
    I am having trouble unlocking on phones with Magisk installed for ROOT
    Nothing against Magisk, I personally use and love it. Feel free to install this AFTER UNLOCK
    I'm just having trouble with the unlock using Magisk.

    I am offering a free unlock via

    I will still gladly accept any donations that come my way via PayPal ([email protected])
    But DONATION is 100% OPTIONAL

    All i ask is RESPECT and PATIENCE. (if these are not given then I may CHOOSE not to help you)
    Remember this is taking time away from my wife and family to help YOU!

    This is a FREE remote unlock service. AT YOUR OWN RISK.
    No, I will not share my method..... as it could get patched by Samsung.

    Here we go........

    F.A.Q

    Q. What if my IMEI is bad or blacklisted?
    A. There are a few times of blacklist... T-Mobile seems to block INTERNAL only if non payment. Others will block if non payment or lost/stolen.
    This does not effect SIM unlock, I can do it regardless.... However, you WILL NOT GET NETWORK SIGNAL IF BLOCKED
    Check here for T-mobile https://www.t-mobile.com/verifyIMEI.aspx and also here for all models http://imei24.com/blacklist_check/
    If you are not sure ask first!

    Q. Can you change/repair my IMEI?
    A. HELL NO. This is not only against XDA Rules but it is illegal in most countries, including mine.

    Q. Is this really free?
    A. Yes, although I do hope for a donation for my time and effort

    Q. When are you available?
    A. See below.

    Q. Can we get on with it all ready?
    A. Yes!

    Phone Settings ALL Models

    Disable FRP by enabling OEM UNLOCK
    http://techbeasts.com/how-enable-oem-unlock-android-lollipop-marshmallow/

    Enable USB debugging
    https://forum.xda-developers.com/fire-phone/general/guide-enable-usb-debugging-setup-t2859697

    Revoke USB authorization (if applicable)
    Developer Settings > Revoke USB authorization

    GSM Only
    Phone dialer > *#0808# > USB = AP
    Phone dialer > *#0808# > USB SETTINGS = DM + ACM/MODMEM + ADB (note, will say ACM or MODEM)
    If and only IF the above doesn’t work then try:
    Developer Settings > USB Configuration > RNDIS (USB Ethernet)

    SPRINT Only
    Phone dialer > ##3424# >Qualcomm USB settings > DM + ADB + Modem
    If the above asks for MSL or doesn’t work then try:
    Developer Settings > USB Configuration > RNDIS (USB Ethernet) then we can get MSL to enable the above if you need MSL

    For those that don't know... the 5th to last digit in the firmware is the BOOTLOADER (BL) version. YOU CAN'T GO BACK!!
    i.e G920TUVU5EQC2 the BL version is 5 so you can't flash anything less than BL version 5


    PC

    You will need a Windows PC for the software. Please ensure you have Windows 7 or newer
    Windows Vista and XP are NOT RECOMMENDED (for anything lol).

    Please download FlexiHub http://www.eltima.com/wiki/user-guides/flexihub-windows/installation.html and install on your PC.
    Please reboot after install.
    Please create a FREE flexihub account here https://flexihub.eltima.com/user/registration/ AFTER ENTER DETAILS, YOU WILL SEE A PAYMENT PAGE... CLOSE WINDOW NOW. FREE ACCOUNT ALREADY CREATED
    Or I have a few accounts if you wish to use one just let me know.
    Please have FlexiHub open and logged in.

    Unlocking Process

    When you have contacted me and I have replied that we are ready you may proceed to:

    Open flexihub and log in to your account
    DO NOT SEND COM PORT. THIS IS USELESS TO ME ALONE
    If needed click 'UNLOCK' on the phone's driver so it can be accessed (i.e Samsung_Android OR Gadget_Serial OR MSMxxxx)
    Right click on your phone's driver in flexihub(i.e Samsung_Android OR Gadget_Serial OR MSMxxxx) and click send invite.
    Type in [email protected] and click OK.

    I will connect to the device and proceed from there.

    Please watch phone for USB Authorization prompt.
    Check the box then press OK.
    I will disconnect and reconnect as required (using FlexiHub).
    Watch phone Screen for SU (ROOT) prompt and press GRANT.

    All you need to do is watch the phone for USB Authorization and ROOT grant.
    Please follow the instructions I send via Google Hangouts
    After we are finished you can return your device settings to as they were and you can remove FlexiHub from PC.

    Please kindly donate via PayPal to [email protected] (once again 100% optional)
