Most mobile service providers include firmware software to secure the phone exclusive use to their network. The firmware blocks the user from switching mobile providers and/or SIM cards.

The Samsung SGH-G600 can be unlocked by retrieving the subsidy unlock code, provided by the provider's customer service or technical support representative.
