- Turn on the ASUS Zenfone 3 ZE552KL and connect to WiFi.
- To turn Talkback on, go back one page to the Welcome screen. Select Readability > Enable Talkback function. Confirm by pressing OK button
I want to use this ASUS zenfone but I don’t have SIM card, so I think that the phone is locked. And when I try to call through (tap on) *#*#4636#*#*, it says “phone code” and then “phone code error”. So how can i bypass Google validation? Can someone help me for that?
Thanks. Here’s a temporary workaround: tell your friend with simnet account to download Hangout and install it on his device first. Then install Hangouts on your device as well and sign in using his account or your google account linked with cell number. Delete all contacts from the phone except yours and remove him as friend in hangouts. Add back you as friend again and you should be able to call out.
The problem with Hangouts is that the first person who signed up won’t receive any calls even though your number registered in his contacts. I still can’t figure out this problem as hangouts appear online when I send a message but he doesn’t see me on the contact list nor does he get my messages. The only way to reach him is via sms or email.
I’m using T-Mobile prepaid SIM and if I switch it from WCDMA/GSM mode to LTE/CDMA mode, could I use it for internet connection? Thanks! For Tmobile google voice trick , you will need two android phones & at least one sim card per phone. I’m using this trick with my wife’s old android phone (with blown screen) and it works well for voice calls.
If you don’t have any Android devices, just order one from Amazon for ~$25 like Zopo ZP998 – http://www.amazon.com/ZOPO-Quad-Core-Black… It is unlocked and comes with LTE band support.
After you set up your GV number on the second device with a new SIM card, switch to WCDMA/GSM mode with that sim card in it & disable cell data network option on the first device. When anyone call your GV number associated with the second device, google voice will ring both devices at the same time, you just answer from the device with working screen.
I’m using this method for long distance calls between my home phone & mobile phones and it works great.
Note: If you’re using a third party app like GV Dialer to call your GV number, make sure it’s updated with latest version, the older version is kinda buggy and doesn’t work well. I used advance calling 1.1.9 by aventura technologies LLC without any issues or bugs. Note: The third party dialing apps have market access disabled by google so don’t bother look for them in google play store unless you know how to side load an apk file on android device (it’s not hard).

You need to obtain a google voice number from Google. A free one is better because then you don’t get charged for credits. You can use this method with any phone that’s unlocked and capable of running the Hangouts app which supports US English language. This method works on tmobile prepaid sim card I’ve used in my Nexus 4 but not sure about other cell carriers like sprint, verizon etc…
1) Initial Setup (your mac PC/laptop or android device): Since installing up Google Voice is simple; there are just three steps involved to creating an account, obtain a 10 digit google voice number, and installing the google voice app on your android device. The first step is to go visit this link:
Next enter your information in the form and click ‘sign up’… nothing complicated there. (already registered? skip ahead to step 2)
Now you should’ve logged in. Once that’s done, tap the three horizontal dots on the top right of your screen and click settings. You’ll see an option called ‘Get a Google Voice number’; tap it! (this is important to continue)
The next page will say this “You don’t have aGoogle Voice number yet. Get one here.”… at this point close out the app by going home button back to menu button then clicking google voice to exit all apps. This is necessary so that you can sign up for a new 10 digit google voice account using Hangouts which doesn’t require a cell phone signal like regular old Google voice calls do. If there was no cell signal, you wouldn’t be able to complete this tutorial!
And now Google Voice is ready for use on your new android device! You can get a free app called GV Mobile+ from the Play Store if you want. It’s basically the same thing as the website but easier to navigate. If you want more information about it click here:
2) Obtain google voice number and forward calls from tmobile sim card to google voice using Hangouts: Now that Google Voice is all set up (and hopefully working correctly), we’ll need to obtain a US 10 digit phone number for this method which will be forwarded to your Google Voice account . This step requires getting another app so make sure there’s room left on your SD card . Open your Play store and search for: “CID Call Forwarder”, install this app. Upon opening it, you’ll need to create a new profile by tapping on the menu button in the top right corner of your screen -> tap ‘+’ -> tap ‘New Profile’. Once in the next page, make sure that everything is filled out correctly including.
There is no current workaround to bypass Google account verification, which is an essential security feature.
Open the Google Account Settings > Security and scroll down to find 2-Step Verification at the bottom of the list. Click on Turn off button, type in your password, click Enter. This will deactivate two-step verification to allow you to log in without a code from any device
