Hello Everyone, I need some geniuses here.
I got this phone from the gym that had been in the L&F drawer for like 2-3 months. My sister works for Cingular and ran the ESN number and found that it was no longer registered to anybody, or that nobody had called to report it missing. So I charged it up and was going to have my sister program it for my number. But there is a lock code set by the previous owner. Since I have no way of contacting the previous owner, there is a lock code which pretty much renders this phone useless. I was wanting to ask if there is ANY way I can override the current Lock Codes and Security Codes, because when I turn the phone on, I try the default codes and nothing works meaning somebody has programmed a new code in the phone. HELP PLEASE!!!!
I know there are a bunch of Cell phone geniuses.
The phone is a MOTOROLA 120t model phone for CINGULAR WIRELESS.

While it's cool to find a phone, don't fret over a Mot 120t! Before you try to even deal with this phone, is it even compatible with a service that you already subscribe to or have ready access to? If I'm not mistaken, the 120t is a TDMA model, which is essentially on its way out. Cingular, along with just about every other TDMA provider, is migrating everything from TDMA to GSM. Do you already have TDMA service with Cingular? If not, the phone won't do you a lot of good.

At Cingular, the 120t is a TDMA phone. If you don't already have a TDMA plan, you can't get one, rendering the mobile useless. If you had a TDMA contract from long ago, you can use the 120t, as long as you don't switch your plan. My father is a "grandfathered" customer and Cingular (used to be CellularOne), and has been since nearly the beginning, when they had those damned box/briefcase-sized phones. It's still in our basement. They let him keep his TDMA plan, but come mid-2005, it will be mandatory to switch to a GSM plan.
As for the lock code thing, I believe you can have the phone taken to Cingular to have them wipe it out, or restore the original factory settings. If that fails, and you really want a 120t, I've got an old one around here somewhere, and I'll send it to you if I can find it.
Email me at firstname.lastname@example.org if you'd like the phone, and I'll see what I can do .

Mobile phones are evil.
They might not be the root of all evil on this godforsaken world, but they are close to it.
I suggest we build a gigantic bonfire, and purify by this pyre all those evil devices. Let's add to the purification those evil men and women who blacken their soul (have they any less) by devicing those evil aplliances.

Thanks guys for all the replies. I already have the phone, so I don't need another one. I do still have my TDMA service, (Will have GSM in December, but I need a TDMA phone until then, which I have). I will try to take it to Cingular.

It's amazing, that although massive spread of cell phones is a phenomena of the last "globalization" decade or so, yet there are three(?) different systems completely incompatible with each other. Much of South America has this iDEN standard, US runs 1900MHz GSM...

L410Turbolet - I think its not so much three incompatible systems, it more like one global system (GSM) and two incompatible systems. Still, you can get phones that work with all 3 (Quadri-band phones) but they're very expensive.
P.S. 707CMF - I agree, mobile phones are the sputum of Beelzebub and should be banned from public places, like smoking.

JG, yes GSM has taken the lion share of the markets in the 90'.
The frequency bands used by various systems is not related to the mode of the system but to the spectrum allocated in each country. (CDMA on 450MHz will start soon in Europe, reusing the spectrum initially allocated to the Scandinavian-born NMT system).
Integrating 3 frequency bands (900/1800/1900) in a cellphone is quite common nowadays, but mixing three different modes is not.
The day it exists it will be a tri-mode cellphone, not tri-band.

I still have to do that with my V600 Motorola, I think that there are places all over that do it, but go to the no name guy who will do it for like 30 bucks, rather then have Motorola do it for like 200 bucks

I looked at the V600 last week when I got a new phone at Cingular. I didn't really need the capability of the Bluetooth, so I just got the V400. Excellent phone, except the volume is still very low, even when it's on it's highest volume. The two phones are nearly identical, if you leave out the Bluetooth thing. Also, the V600 is $100 more than the V400, which sells for $199 minus the rebate if you got it before August 1st.
