Unlocked Cell Phones are really expensive when you buy them from the local stores. Also, if you already paid for your phone by jut unlocking it, you are abe to ue it with many other GOOD prepaid cell phone companies.
Most cell phones sold in United States, the so called “on contract” locked to a particular cellular carrier. They can only be used on that carrier’s network, so you can’t switch to another carrier without “unlocking” it first.
Phone locking applies to nearly any type of cell phone, from the lowest, cheapest dumb phone to the highest end Smartphone. Unlocking is different from jailbreaking and rooting, which bypass other software restrictions on mobile devices.
How it Works
IMEI unlocking is the simplest way to unlock your phone. The IMEI number is a unique 15-digit identification number for your phone, which is displayed when you press *#06# on your phone's keypad. The IMEI is also printed on the back of your phone, usually underneath the battery.
Once you submit your IMEI to us, we will retrieve the 8-digit unlock code for your phone via a remote database .To enter the code in your phone, simply insert a different SIM card (from any network but the one that your phone is locked to) and enter the unlock code at the prompt.
Once your phone has been unlocked, you will never need to enter the code again, even if you upgrade the software (flash) or hard reset your phone.
