Unlocking the Blackjack SIM Card

So you want to unlock your Samsung Blackjack? Unlocking your Blackjack cell phone will give the ability to put the SIM card from any carrier in it so you can use on their network. This will let you use the incredible Blackjack on Sprint if you want too. Now you can go overseas and use a pay as you go SIM from a local carrier. Cool right?

I know my earlier post on “How to Perform an Application Unlock on the Blackjack” caused some confusion because some of you thought I was talking about a SIM unlock. I’m hoping this information helps.

How to Unlock Your Blackjack:

  1. First you’ll need to get your Network Control Key. The Network Control Key is a 8 digits unlock code. There are two paths to get your NCK. You can either call AT&T or ask for it. You may have to ask them to put you through to their tech department.  If you’ve never signed up for AT&T’s Service they may not give the code because your not a customer. The other way to get the code is to contact a cell phone unlocking service. They usually charge around $20 to get this code for you.
  2. Once you get the Network Control Key power off the phone.
  3. Remove the SIM card.
  4. Power on the phone back on.
  5. Enter #7465625*638*
  6. Enter Network Control Key.
  7. Press “OK” Soft key, not the Send or OK hard key.
  8. Power off the phone.
  9. Reinsert the new SIM card.

Based on the response from people that have tried this I assume it works. I have no need to unlock my phone because I live in the States and I enjoy using AT&T as my services provider. So please let me know if this does not work on either the original Samsung Blackjack or the Blackjack II. Good luck!

    With some blackjacks you must have a SIM card from the original carrier and LEAVE it IN the phone during the unlocking. Also, once the phone reports a successful unlock their are sometimes other USER SIM unlocking codes that may be required. These may be the last four digits of the original user’s social or some other 4 digit pin. After unlocking my Blackjack2, I had to download a manual and then figure this out for myself.

      here’s how you do it. turn off your phone 1st, then insert a sim card not associated with at&t, then it should ask you to place in the 8 digit code that at&t gave you, then afterwards let it synchronized by itself give atleast a minute or two, then try to call using the new simcard not associated with the at&t network… it should work, because it worked for me…

    Does anyone have an unlock code for this Samsung Blackjack i607 phone, `I have AT&T as my carrier and they will not give me a sim unlock code, they only gave me a software unlock code

  • Tom January 15, 2012, 7:11 pm

    Hello,
    Can someone PLEASE help me. I want to unlock my Samsund Blackjack i607 so my D-I-L can use it. I asked AT&T for it and all they would give me is a software unlock code. I NEED a sim card unlock code so my D-I-L can use it for T-Mobile
    So what I am asking is “Could someone PLEASE give me the 8 digit sim card unlock code” I am on a fixed income and can afford to buy the code and my carrier, AT&T will not give me a sim card unlock code.
    Thank-You so Much
    PS; You can email me at mulescout@comcast.net
