I didn't have issues. Try turning the lock over. Maybe someone reversed it by accident.

I used the WhereYouGo app on my Android, and didn't encounter a code to unlock.

Sorry, I couldn't help you more.

Hmmm, odd then , I also used an android phone , and it was my first time to attempt a whereigo on my own. I have always been along with someone else when doing them and they gave me the code or entered it for me afterwards .. ...
..but again thanks for replying ( trying ) to help :)

I didn't have problems with the CAM Wherigo, but have had this issue with a few cartridges in the past. If the code doesn't work, and you still have the cartridge on your phone, you can upload your saved game to unlock the cartridge (in lieu of entering the code). Here's a link to a blog article that explains how to do this on the iPhone:

Can't say how this would work on Android, but maybe someone who's done this with the Android player could chime in.

The code that I received on my Android for Sykesville worked like a charm on the Whereigo website, but I understand that there are times that the code is too long and you need to leave off the final character for it to work. Also, in the code that I received for Sykesville, there was an o but no zeroes, and upper/lower case matters. Good luck!

We had the same problem initially entering the Unlock Code from Sykesville. I first tried to copy and paste it, then tried to type it in. Both failed. Finally, in frustration/inspiration, I copied it into Notepad, then copied and pasted from Notepad and it worked. Don't know why that worked unless Wherigo requires pure ASCII with no HTML. It's worth trying
