  • Press the volume button and hold more and also press the start button beside the off button
  • When you see an android with some blue in the center release all buttons and wait to enter the menu
  • Within this menu move with the volume buttons until "Wipe data / Factory reset" when you're there you press the power button to confirm your choice

1. Turn on the Samsung Galaxy S5 with a SIM card from a source other than the terminal operator.
2. If the card has a PIN, enter the PIN and press OK.
3. The phone will say SIM LOCK, now enter the code and press OK.
The Samsung Galaxy S5 will be free.
I hope it was helpful information.
