How To Unlock Your Mobile Phone
It is no secret that every cellphone has a built in locking mechanism that is used by our network provider to benefit them. 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. Aside from the fact that this is very inconvenient, it is very costly for the user.
There are multiple network service providers around the globe that opt to lock their cellphones. Countries like the US, Canada, Australia, and many other countries have network providers who do this.
If you have a locked cellphone, do not worry because there are ways on how to unlock it. The first way you can unlock your phone is by asking for it’s “unlock code” from your network service provider. Every mobile phone has an unlock code depending on its model and brand. You may do this when your contract with your current network provider is about to end. Despite having a few more years on your contract, you can still get your cellphone’s unlock code from your network service provider. You may claim your phone’s unlock code by calling your network service provider and come up with a good excuse. If you tell them you would be spending a couple of weeks abroad for a vacation, they are likely to approve your request. Once you receive the unlock code for your phone, unlocking it is a breeze.
Just in case your network service provider refuses and denies your request to get your phone’s unlock code, don’t worry, you still have the option to take it to your nearest cellphone repair shop. For as long as we take our cellphone to a good and reputable cellphone repair shop, we can be guaranteed that they will unlock our phone.
When looking for reputable cellphone repair shops, it is advisable that you search for them online. 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 you have friends and family members that have experienced going to a cellphone repair shop in the past, why not ask them for recommendations? You can never go wrong with a recommendation from someone you trust.
For as long as you successfully unlocked your phone, you are no longer hindered to use only one SIM card.
