I have a problem with my galaxy gio. It has a network lock (I think) and I've tried to unlock it. The problem is that I have the unlock code but the phone doesn't ask for it. It is there a menu or a key code to open that menu to enter the unlock code or any other solution ?

Thanks

I've solved the problem. The device has a custom rom and you cannot unblock them so. I had to flash the device with a stock one and Odin and then it asked me for network key.

At least on older phones the unlock codes work directly from the dialing interface. Try to enter the code as if you were calling it (from the dialer).

I've already tried that ... –  Badea Sorin May 21 '12 at 22:25
    
Another method is to boot the phone with a non-supported SIM card, and it should ask for the Network Lock Control Key, or you can try entering #7465625*638*unlockcode# into the dialer, or #0111*unlockcode#, or just #7465625*638*# and then the unlock code when it asks for it. –  onik May 21 '12 at 22:40
