    This should work for most Samsungs.

    1. Turn off your phone, put in a SIM of a provider that it is not locked to, and turn it back on.
    2. At the wrong card message, type *#9998*3323#. A message will pop up telling you to press exit, so hit the right softkey. Choose number 7or 8 work, I think). Your phone will reboot and your SIM will work.
    3. Type *0141# and then hit call. This will give you a message saying your phone is personalized.
    4. Power down your phone and insert a SIM card other than the one that is in it. Power back up your phone.
    5. At the SIM code prompt type 00000000, that is 8 zeroes.

    Your phone should now be unlocked. Let me know how it goes.
    If those not work try this one,
    Take the SIM-card out. It's important that the SIM card IS NOT in the phone, during the following steps!!
    Turn on your phone without the SIM-card
    Insert the new SIM-card, and see if it is unlocked
