How To Unlock Your Mobile Phone

Most if not all of our mobile phones are built with a locking mechanism that enables it to only work with a particular network provider. Basically, our cellphone only recognizes the SIM card of our network provider.

If you are one of the people who has a locked cellphone, you must get it unlocked to avoid problems in the future. Let me give you an example, if you are planning to travel abroad, your locked cellphone will be unable to read local SIM cards. Instead of just buying a local SIM card, you will be forced to pay for the additional roaming charges. This is not only inconvenient, it is also very costly for the user.

Most if not all reputable network service providers lock their cellphones for the benefit of their business. Some countries that have network providers that lock their cellphones includes the US, Canada, Australia, and many others.

If you have a locked cellphone, do not worry because there are ways on how to unlock it. The most common way to unlock one’s cellphone is to obtain it’s “unlock code”. It is a known fact that every cellphone has it’s very own unlock code, you may ask this from your network service provider. You may do this when your contract with your current network provider is about to end. If you still have a couple of years left in your contract, you can still ask for your phone’s unlock code from your network service provider. All that is required of you to do is to give their management a phone call and come up with a good excuse. The most common alibi people come up with is they need to unlock their phone because they will be travelling and spending a couple of days abroad. Once you have received your phone’s unlock code, unlocking your phone is a piece of cake.

You don’t have to worry if your network service provider denies your request to get your phone’s unlock code, always remember that you can still take your phone to a 3rd party to unlock it. Your last option to get your phone unlocked is by taking it to your local cellphone repair shop, they are the best people to help us out.

When searching for good cellphone repair shops to unlock your phone, it is best to utilize the internet. A lot of them already have their own website. It is by visiting their websites that we become more aware of their capabilities and services. If possible, you may also ask for recommendations from your friends and family. When they give you a recommendation, you know the cellphone repair shop is good.

For as long as you successfully unlocked your phone, you are no longer hindered to use only one SIM card.
