So how can you go about Unlocking your phone without breaking the bank? From unlocking a Sony Xperia Z to the Nokia Luma 920, unlocking a cell is easy and affordable. There are a variety of reasons why someone may choose to unlock their phone and if you’re considering it yourself, the chances are at least one of them has occurred to you.
Ever travelled abroad on vacation or for work only to return home to a bill that it considerably higher than any you have ever received before? Well, if you have, you are in good company, as its something that many of us have experienced at one time or another.
As soon as your phone is unlocked, you will be able to pop into a local shop when abroad and purchase a pre-paid SIM. No longer will you have to worry about massive bills, through sending the odd text or background data charges that you didn’t even know you were incurring.
Unlocking your cell phone
• Enter the following digits on the keyboard *#06#
• Assuming you have done this correctly, your unique IMEI number will then appear on the screen. You will need to make a note of this number accurately and double check it, as you will need it to get your unlocking code.
• You should then forward it to us, along with your name, make and model of your phone and a current e-mail address and wait for us to send you the unlocking code and how to proceed.
• Simply follow our instructions and you phone will be unlocked in no time.
As well as cheaper calls, there are other financial advantages to an unlocked phone you may also want to consider, such as the ability to switch between providers whenever you choose. Personally, I can get cheap calls to my partner on a different network to the one I had, so it was an easy way to change without the hassle of getting a new phone.
Should you come to sell your mobile phone, that should also be easier. An unlocked cell phone is a more appealing product on eBay than a locked handset and you’re likely to get a few extra pounds for it as well. The same applies with Amazon and even if you decide to sell in your local paper.
The great thing is the financial benefits will far outweigh the minimal cost you will be paying to have your phone unlocked, so there is no reason not to go ahead and do now, as it makes plenty of sense.
As long as your phone wasn’t purchased in the US after 26th January 2013, it’s perfectly legal as well, so you don’t have to worry that you are breaking any laws.
