I lost Lock Code - Can you do a master reset?

I just got out of the hospital and forgot my password for unlocking my Samsung Instinct (M810). It's not the last four digits of my phone number. Is there any way of bypassing the unlock menu and resetting the phone?

Join my Instinct Yahoo group,

Go into the files section and download the unlocker.

Next you need to take the microSD card out...JUST IN CASE.
(while tryin to hack and unlock my phone i made a goof and erased everything on
my card). Now, plug your phone into your computer using the data cable. open the
unlocker program, when the unlocker opens go to and click the setup tab. Next
go to the device manager on your computer, and find the port that your phone is
using to connect to, ex: Samsung mobile modem diagnostic serial port (COM9).
change the com on the unlocker to match the one in the device manager, and then
click the read all tab on the unlocker. the 4 digit user lock code is on the
right hand side under sec. code (SPC).

This page shows how to get to your MSL(Sec code), But right underneath that is your lock code.

the download above had a backdoor trojan in it.  Beware.

I just called sprint, and let them help me with re-activation.

Well then my Symantec Endpoint Anti-virus knows less about trojan horse viruses than you do....Not.

It's been reported that it is a "False Positive" as the ulocker site admits to putting ebay shortcuts in the program. Upon installation, they are OPTIONAL. It is totally safe to use. Do a quick Google search and you will see what I'm talking about. I would never post/support a program that has viruses' in it. I have been using it since 2008 and never had an issue.

I just used this and it worked. Saved me going to the Sprint Store.

Thank you!!
