How to unlock Bell Prepaid Samsung C414 ??

Hi,
BB and FS are selling these for $29.99... but there is no cheap unlocking solution to unlock bell version of C414!!
Tried ebay and couple of websites like Mobile Express Canada and FastGSM, they all starts from $20-$30 range.. LOL... More expensive than the phone itself!!

Please let me know if anyone knows how to unlock it!!

Thanks,

Those "instructions" unlock your phone but end up destroying your imei number. Be careful.

Factory reset (Google the code) unlocks both C414y and C414m. At least it has for me. Imei is 0000000, but who cares?

So do these Bell C414s work on Wind if you do the factory reset?

No, this phone only supports the 850 and 1900 bands. It won't even work on 3G in Europe or Asia. It's a very basic phone.

If you buy the mobilicity version at walmart, do the factory reset, it will work with Wind, and Rogers. The Bell version at Best Buy works with Bell, Telus, and Rogers. I have tested.

Yeah, but Walmart wants $50 for this phone, and based on what I have read $30 is pushing it.

Yes, but you get 50% off monthly rates for 6 months. Still $50.00 for a phone, unlockable in 10 seconds, evaluate what it is worth to you!
