Handset Freezes while unlocking

Reasons for “Phone Freeze”

  • Inputting the unfreeze code rather than the unlock code into your handset
  • Following the incorrect input procedure for your handset
  • Handset automatically displays “Phone Freeze” when an unaccepted SIM card is inserted into the handset, however when the accepted SIM card is inserted, the handset works fine

If your handset freezes for whatever reason and displays the Phone Freeze or Return for Service message then you will need to use the Unfreeze/Defreeze code that was sent along with unlock code.
