Unlock codes for a Samsung Galaxy Ace

26

The Samsung Galaxy Ace, part number GT-S5830L, is one of the lowest priced Android-based smartphones offered by Samsung. It was released in 2011, and replaced in 2012 by the newer Galaxy Ace Plus. The Galaxy Ace is designed for heavy multimedia use, and contains the hardware and apps necessary for taking, editing, and sharing photos and videos. It is also well integrated with various social networks.

Like other Samsung smartphones, the Galaxy Ace is shipped with a SIM lock. That means that your phone will only work with the carrier that sold it to you, and is the way the carriers ensure they get the cost of the phone back even though they sold it to you for much less than retail price. To allow the phone to be used with any GSM carrier, however, all you have to do is reverse the SIM lock by entering the Samsung unlocking codes that match the locking codes used by Samsung in the first place.

You can find out what the Samsung unlocking codes are for your specific phone, identified by your IMEI number, by having someone consult the database of unlock codes provided by Samsung. You may be able to unlock a Samsung phone for free. Your carrier has access to this database, and may be willing to give you the codes to unlock your Samsung phone as a courtesy, depending on how long you’ve owned the phone and been using their service.

If you can’t unlock the Samsung phone for free, not to worry. There are many online vendors who also have access to all of the cell phone manufacturer databases of unlock codes. For a small fee, these vendors will look up your unique IMEI number, and send you an email containing the code you need in order to be able to unlock your Samsung phone.

It’s very important to get the code that matches your specific phone. Don’t try to save money by using a code that worked for someone else’s phone or you might permanently lock your phone!

You’re also going to need a new SIM card. These don’t cost much, and are available from any cell phone store. The important thing is that you need to buy one that isn’t already associated with your current carrier.

The code and SIM card are all you need to unlock your Galaxy Ace. Simply follow these steps.

1. Power off your phone.

2. Remove your existing SIM card, and insert the SIM card that you just purchased.

3. Power on your phone.

4. The phone will ask you for either your SIM network unlock PIN or SIM Network Control Key.

5. Simply enter the unlock code you were given.

Once you have successfully unlocked your phone, you will be able to use your Galaxy Ace with any GSM carrier.
