How it works

How To Unlock My Phone?

If that’s the questions your asking yourself, well then you’ve come to the right place, all you need to do is buy the unlock you need on the form above, we will take care of all the technical stuff in the background, and if you have a device that can not be unlocked for any reason, we will give you 100% of your money back, so you don’t have to worry.

Even though we have over 90% success rate with all phone unlocks and iPhone unlocks, this is important, as unlocking phones is a very technical process and there are lots of reasons why a device may not be able to be unlocked (unpaid bills for some models, some have to be over 6 months old, some have to ask for an unlock code at a certain point) the list goes on. This is all too much technical mumbo jumbo that a regular person doesn’t need to and shouldn’t know.

However lots of cell phone unlock services, will take your money, find out the device can not be unlocked for some miniscule technical reason and then either not give you your money back, or give you a partial refund, claiming it’s not their fault but yours. They state the reason as you didn’t read their terms and conditions, which are usually like a zillion pages long and very technical. Which I think this is utterly scandalous!

Well not us, it doesn’t matter, if we can not unlock your phone for any reason whatsoever we will provide a full and immediate refund. So you have ZERO RISK and you don’t need to learn the complex and boring process of phone unlocking. We are the ONLY PHONE UNLOCK SERVICE THAT DOES THIS, no matter what, you are covered by our money back guarantee.

However, for those of us who like to know a little bit more before we buy anything, and because we like to be as open, honest and transparent as possible. I’ll explain a little bit more about the whole phone unlocking process below, but if you’re bored at any point, just head back up to the top of the page and get your phone unlocked today.


Reasons You Have Googled “Phone Unlock / iPhone Unlock”

It’s likely you have a new phone, are leaving the country or just simply want to change provider as you’ve fallen out of love with your current one, not that we ever love the network that takes money out of our account each month ;)


- New Phone Needs Unlocked

So you’ve got a sweet new phone and need a phone unlock service to use your regular network. There can be multiple pitfalls with other companies, some makes and models of phone need the device to be at least 6 months old before it can be unlocked, Cricket USA and EE UK are examples of this but only with some iPhone unlocks and not others. See how it gets pernickety? I mean come on guys how the heck is regular person supposed to know that! Or supposed to read through a stack of terms and conditions pages to see that.

Or maybe you bought a second hand phone, and you don’t know the history of it, but you realise your cool new iPhone X is locked to AT&T and you want to use T-Mobile. So you you buy an iPhone unlock service online for $70, only to find a few days later they say it can’t be unlocked because the device is reported as lost or stolen. The process involved here is the company you used, will usually submit your IMEI to Apple servers for unlocking. A day or two after processing the unlock, it will likely be rejected by Apples unlock servers as the device has been listed as “stolen, lost, insurance claim or blacklisted”.

The average iPhone unlock service (not us) will say sorry we don’t unlock stolen devices, it says in our terms no refund for this reason. It’s like they are blaming the customer, they were hardly to know the iPhone was blacklisted, and couldn’t be unlocked! Well not with us, if it turns out to be be blacklisted or stolen, you don’t need to worry we will give you a full refund and advise the best way to deal with it if we can.


- Leaving The Country

So you're either going on holiday or leaving permanently and you just found out your device will not work abroad unless you use a phone unlocking service. Well not to worry our unlocking method is permanent, it will never relock, and means you can use the device in any country, forever. Some cellular unlock services will use unreliable methods that unlock your phone temporarily or in a limited capacity. Not with us, our unlocks come with a lifetime guarantee that they will never relock. We have never had a case of a phone relocking, but we say if it ever does, just send us a video showing it has and we will provide a full refund. With us you can relax and trust you are getting the best service and there is no risk whatsoever to your wallet or your phone.


- Changing network provider

Now this sounds as if it should be simple, but often it’s not. There are CDMA networks and there are GSM networks, and often you can’t swap between them, and some networks won’t even let certain phone models unlock at all! For example if you have a phone locked to Sprint and you want to use another network, depending on the phone you often can’t, again other companies will take your money, not be able to unlock your phone, and a few days later say something to the effect of “soz not today buddy, you didn’t read our 14 page T & C’s so y’all ain’t getting a refund”. I know I’m repeating myself a little here, but not us, if we can not unlock your phone you will get a full refund, and while we think that should be the norm and not our unique selling point, it is our USP, because it is actually unique.


- Different Unlock Methods For Different Phones

Some Samsung, LG, ZTE unlocks don’t actually require a code to unlock them, but they use a “Device Unlock App” method, lots of other companies don’t even offer this, and only sell the unlock code method. So when they take the customers money they don’t tell them this and in their terms and conditions it states, it is the customer responsibility to make sure their device need the unlock code method to use other networks. Which I think is nuts, if they knew the very technical phone unlock process, they wouldn’t need your phone unlock service in the first place!

Well not us, when a customer orders a phone unlock, we will submit their IMEI to usually the network / manufacturer servers for unlocking, and if it turns out a code is not the correct unlocking method, it will often get rejected. So we email the customer to ask to make sure does their device actually ask for an unlock code when they put a new sim in. If they say it does not, then this means it needs the device unlock app method to unlock. So we will either resubmit with this method, or if the new method is much more expensive for us to process we may ask the customer to pay the difference.

However, as mentioned a squillion times already, the customer is entitled to the money back guarantee, even in this case, if they are unhappy to pay the extra. However more often than not, we just perform the device unlock app at no extra cost. To put it simply, you have nothing to worry, you don’t need to be a phone unlock guru just to buy a phone unlock with us, you buy and it’s done, in rare cases it can’t be done you will get a full refund.

So with all that mentioned we are the clear choice for phone unlocking, but one last reason is that the price you see is the final price. We have tried using other companies to see what the competition does, so we can provide the best service to our customers. We have actually found a good few phone and iphone unlock services, will show one price, you buy and then a few days later they say ok, now it’s $70 to activate your unlock. “Wait, what!? But I paid for the unlock!”, which was my exact words. Turns out a lot ask for a pre order price for the phone unlocking, and then once the unlock is complete, they charge extra to email you the code. I thought this was outrageous and demanded a refund for the iPhone the never unlocked However they said pre order price is not covered by the money back guarantee. Utterly scandalous!


Conclusion

So in conclusion, I know I’ve slated other phone unlocking services online, however I think it’s necessary as the customer needs to be aware of all pitfalls so they can make the best decision. There has been too many people stung out there by other sites making the whole process confusing. So while phone unlocking is very technical and confusing, that’s what you pay us for, we will take care of all that, and in the rare case your phone or iPhone can not be unlocked, we will provide a full refund.

So if you’ve gotten all the way to the bottom of the, what are you waiting for? Scoot back up and get your phone unlocked today!

We take care of all the technical stuff for you, but if your interested, read on

Frequently Asked Questions



What is a cell phone unlock?


An unlock code for your phone is simply a string of numbers that you will receive by email. This code is uniquely generated for your device. When you enter it into your locked phone, it will deactivated the SIM lock restriction, and allows the phone to be used on any other compatible networks worldwide. Hallelujah!!!
The type of phone unlock we provide, is simply a network /carrier unlock for your phone. What this means is that, say your device is locked to Vodafone in the UK and you want to use a different network like O2, or maybe a different network when abroad. Well you just buy the Vodafone unlock for your phone by filling out the short form above. Once your phone has been unlocked from Vodafone you will always be able to use any network you like that is compatible with your phone globally.


Why should I unlock my cell phone?


There are multiple reasons you should unlock your cell phone. For one it increases the value of it, if you ever want to sell it when you upgrade. However, the main reason people buy a phone unlock is they simply want to use another network either at home or abroad, and their evil overlord network won’t them use a different network. This also helps avoid roaming charges in any other country worldwide, as you can use a local sim when you arrive.


Is it illegal to unlock a phone?


The short answer is no, it is perfectly legal to unlock your phone.
The long answer is the Digital Millennium Copyright Act, introduced an exemption on November 27th, 2006, which permits the network / carrier unlocking of cellular devices to be used on any network / carrier available to the customer. The exemption was set to expire on the October 27th, 2009, but was extended on an interim basis due to the register Copyrights had not yet completed its triennial review of the DMCA exemptions. In July 2010, the Librarian of Congress extended the DMCA exemption for another 3 years and it is still perfectly legal now.


How can I tell if my phone is locked?


This is an easy one, insert a SIM card that is different from your original provider. When you then power your device on, depending on your phone, if it SIM locked, it will display a message like the ones listed below:
– Enter Subsidy Code
– Enter Unlock Code
– Incorrect Sim Card
– Insert Correct Sim Card
– Invalid Smart Chip
– Phone Restricted
– Sim Network Unlock Code
– Sim Network Unlock Pin
– Special Code Required
– Wrong Sim Card
– Network Lock Control Key
– Sim Password
– Incompatible Sim
– Enter Subsidy Pin


What is an IMEI number?


Every cell phone has it’s own unique IMEI (International Mobile Equipment Identity) number, it’s like the fingerprint for your device that allows us to unlock specifically your phone. The IMEI is used by GSM networks to identify devices trying to connect to them and therefore can be used for a stopping a stolen or lost phone from accessing that particular network.

The IMEI is only used to identify the specific device and has no relation to the user. The IMEI includes information on the origin, model and serial number of the device.

IMEI = 14 digits + 1 Check Digit
IMEISV = 14 digits + 2 Digit Software Version Number
IMEI + SV = 14 digits + 1 Check Digit + 2 Digit Software Version Number

The format of the IMEI is AA-BBBBBB-CCCCCC-D, (15 Digits) although it may not always be displayed this way. The IMEISV drops the Luhn CD (i.e. Check Digit) in favour of an additional two digits for the SVN (i.e. Software Version Number), making the format AA-BBBBBB-CCCCCC-EE. The IMEI+SV incorporates both the check digit and the additional two digits for the Software Verison Number, making the format AA-BBBBBB-CCCCCC-D-EE.


What is a SIM card?


A SIM (Subscriber Identity Module) card is the tiny little card you put in to your phone that allows it to connect to your network and gives you your specific phone number. The sim card contains the users subscriptions info and often phone book of contacts. This allows the user to keep this information when switching between phones.


What happens when I unlock my phone?


Depending on if you need an iPhone unlock or a regular phone unlock, the initial result will differ but the final result will be the same. By which I mean, when you unlock a phone that is not an iPhone you will simply get an unlock code to put in. However when your iPhone is unlocked, it’s even simpler, you will not receive an unlock code, you just connect to iTunes usually by WiFi once the unlock is complete to activate it.
Once both types of device are unlocked however the results are the same, they can both use other GSM networks globally and permanently. Neither device will ever re-lock and your phone will be unlocked regardless of network or country switches


What DOES NOT happen when I unlock my phone?


Unlocking your phone does NOT:
Remove user passwords
Remove pattern passwords
Remove icloud activation lock
Remove lost / stolen / blacklist ban
Add frequency bands for usage on CDMA / IDEN networks
Give free services
Jailbreak your device
Root your device
Break your device
It will not void your warranty


Why does my phone say 'unregistered SIM'?


There are a few reasons why this may be and we can figure it out by process of elimination, it is either a faulty sim, a defective phone, or locked to a specific network.
If your phone shows this error message, first try resetting your phone, turn it off, remove the battery if you can, and make sure the SIM is securely in place. Turn your phone on again, if it still reads this message, try your sim in another working phone, if it works fine in another working phone it may be a defective sim, you should order a new one from your network. If it works in the other phone your sim is fine, but device is either faulty or network locked.
You will know the phone is faulty, if you know your sim works in other devices and your device shows this message, then when you put another sim in (from the same network, to eliminate the chance of a network locked phone), it works but yours doesn’t. We already know your sim works fine in other phones, but not in yours while others others do, your phone is defective and needs repaired or changed.
If you put a different sim in that happens to be from the original provider and it seems to work, and other sims don’t work, then it is locked by this network and in order to unlock it from this carrier you simply need to buy a network unlock from us.


What are NOT results of unlocking a phone?


Unlocking will NOT add frequency bands for usage on CDMA / IDEN networks, give customer free services (e.g. Internet, Talk, Text, Roaming, Ringtones), remove Lost / Stolen Ban, remove user passwords from SIM card or handset (See What is a PUK Code ?), void your Warranty.


What is a phone SIM lock?


A SIM lock is when a network adds software to your device that will stop you from using other networks at home or abroad, so mean right!? Not to worry, most of the time it can be easily and cheaply unlocked.


Is my phone GSM or CDMA?


You can find this out by checking if your phone needs a sim card or not. A sim card is a tiny removable card or chip that connects your device to your network. All GSM phones use sim cards, so if you need a sim card for your phone it’s a GSM phone and to unlock it you need a regular GSM unlock.
However if your phone does need a SIM card, or doesn’t even have a place to put a SIM card, then your phone is a CDMA device, as they don’t use a SIM card.


Why are phones locked to a network?


When you buy a phone, often the upfront cost is subsidised with the money you’ll pay down the line as being part of a contract, so they obviously don’t want you to be able to leave right away or they would lose out. In order to make sure they don’t lose out on their investment, GSM networks / carriers add software to your phone called a SIM lock to stop you from using other networks. These kinds of subsidies are worth more than several hundred US dollars per person, which is also the reason networks / carriers often charge an early termination fee, they have to recoup their investment. However, sometimes they are just down right unfair and even when you’ve long finished your contract and they’ve easily recouped their investment, they still wont let you unlock your phone. That’s were we come in 😉


What does a phone hard lock mean?


A hard lock is a permanent carrier lock that you cannot unlock. Your phone will be hard locked if you attempt to enter an incorrect SIM unlock code too many times. So make sure when you buy an unlock code, you purchase from an official unlock code provider like ourselves. Otherwise your device will be permanently locked to your network and there is no escape! Ahhhh!


Each phone make and model, has different limits for how many attempts you have before your phone is permanently hard locked.
The most common amount for the likes of Samsung, Nokia, Motorola and HTC is 5 attempts, which doesn’t leave much room for error.
The messages listed below, are examples of what your phone may say if it has been hard locked.

What is a factory unlock for a phone?


This is when we are able to unlock your device at the factory or manufacturer level, for example with an LG we are able to unlock it, no matter the country or network, as this is done at the factory level. However iPhone’s are always unlocked at the network level, and not all networks will allow you to unlock your phone from them. A network unlock is usually a more expensive unlock but delivers 95% of orders successfully.


What is a network unlock for a phone? Or carrier unlock?


When you buy an network / carrier unlock, you won’t really know the difference on your end, but the code is uniquely generated at the network / carrier level directly (for example an AT&T unlock). When you buy an unlock code from us, we have the unique ability to waive a lot of the eligibility requirements.


Why are some unlock codes more expensive than others?


The cost of unlocking your phone can vary greatly depending on how easy it is to unlock and the availability of the the SIM unlock codes. For example to unlock an iPhone 5 which is long out of contract on AT&T is much easier and cheaper to unlock than a phone that is brand new, still under contract and on a much less popular network. Some carriers will also release unlock codes based on the age of the phone or the needs of the customer. We will always show you the cheapest method to unlock your phone.
In some cases, the carrier will not release the unlock code for your phone due to very strict eligibility requirements or exclusive sales arrangements with manufacturer, or for a bunch of other reasons. You have to remember it’s not in the networks best interest to let you leave and be a customer of other networks, so sometimes they will make it more difficult and more expensive, depending on the network, putting the cost of unlocking up.


Do phone unlock codes expire or run out?


No, phone unlock codes are permanent and do not expire. Other suppliers will sell phone unlocks that can be lost when you update your phone, we do not. All of our unlocks are permanent and guaranteed.


Will a software update lock my phone again?


No, OEM software / OS updates should not re-lock your phone. However, if the rare event your phone does lock again, you can simply reuse the original code to unlock your phone from your carrier again. We can not say the same for unofficial software, rooting or jail breaking software you may have installed on your device, as there is no way of telling what unlicensed software will or will not do.


Are phone unlocks permanent?


Yes, unlike other unlock companies, all of our unlocks are done via the recommend and official method, they will remain unlocked for ever.


Can I use the original phone network again after unlocking?


Yes you can, the point of unlocking your phone is to be able to use all compatible networks, this included your original network.
For example, maybe your phone is locked to AT&T in the USA but your going to Mexico on holiday and you want to use a local SIM card to avoid roaming charges. An AT&T phone unlock, will allow you to use any compatible network in Mexico, and then AT&T again when you return. Or maybe you want to try a different network, but find you actually prefer your old network and want to switch back, this is fine.


What is a PUK code?


PUK stands for Pin Unlock Key and is needed to unlock SIM cards that have become locked after 3 consecutive incorrect PIN entries. So make sure you get an official unlock code from seller like ourselves when you need one.

NOTE: If you put in a wrong PUK code 1o times in a row, your SIM card will become invalidated, and you will have to buy a new one. Otherwise you will be stuck with the following error message: – “PUK blocked call operator”.


How can I tell if my phone is already unlocked?


All you need to do to find this out is :-
Turn your phone off and take out the sim card.
Insert an active SIM card from a different network and turn your phone back on.
If you are able to make or receive phone calls then, you are not locked to any specific carrier. If you get an error message similar to “invalid sim” then your device is not unlocked and you need to purchase an unlock code for it.


Will a warranty repair lock my phone again?


This depends entirely on the level of repair carried out on your phone. If they have to replace the main board / motherboard, which is the core and computer within the phone. If this is replaced, the new one will have a new IMEI number to identify it and in the event this IMEI is not unlocked, you will need to buy a new unlock code for it.


What does phone hard lock mean?


A hard lock is a permanent carrier lock that you cannot unlock. Your phone will be hard locked if you attempt to enter an incorrect SIM unlock code too many times. So make sure when you buy an unlock code, you purchase from an official unlock code provider like ourselves. Otherwise your device will be permanently locked to your network and there is no escape!
