I have a Samsung Galaxy A14 5G. I personally didnt buy it from the store but it's paid for. When I try to network unlock either permanently or temporarily it says unable to because of code 6. What is code 6 and how can I get around this. I need it unlocked for one reason only and that is because I have a government SIM card from Qlink and I would like to be able to use it in my phone every now and then. Otherwise I will have to resort to other methods and flash my phone with Odin.

It's a leased phone that needs to be returned to Tmobile.

which also means if you paid a final price to own it then yes its yours..if you paid off all the lease payments for it but didnt do a final sale price then technically youre still leasing it..
