Having a locked phone can cause a lot of problems and frustrations. Most phones that are on a post-paid plan from a carrier/operator are locked to that network only. Also, many phones from promos by a carrier/operator are locked to that network. Fortunately, unlocking a phone today is legal and there’s different ways of doing it. Here are the top 3 safest ways to unlock your phone’s SIM card:
Using an online service
You can unlock your phone without even leaving your home. You can use a website like SafeUnlockCode and unlock fast and safe your phone. All you need to do is send them some information about your phone (IMEI number, Country) and they will give you a unique unlock code that you can use to unlock your phone. These websites use a secure HTTPs connection and verified by different payment companies, so there’s no risk involved.
Unlocking your phone by your carrier/operator
Some carriers/operators will unlock your phone if you meet their criteria. Most of the time carriers/operators wont unlock your phone if your payment plan isn’t finished. In such cases, if you do want to unlock your phone, you will need to pay a termination fee and then have your phone unlocked. But this can take up a long time since there’s always other customers ahead of you and in some cases they send the phones to other places just to do the unlocking.
Going to the local store
There are some local phone stores and repair shops where you can get your phone unlocked by using their special hardware. But usually there’s no such store nearby and you may need to wait a long time if there’s other people waiting to get their phone unlocked or fixed. Some local phone stores even buy unlock codes from online services and then resell “their” unlocking service to you for a bigger price.
After you unlock your phone, you will get a lot of benefits – like having the freedom to use your phone on any network or in any country. Unlocked phones get sold faster and easier, since most people want an unlocked phone and don’t want to have limited capabilities with a locked phone.
