Being locked to one carrier can be extremely frustrating. Having your phone bound to one company (even when your contract is up) restricts your choice in terms of monthly plans and coverage quality and is even more limiting if you want to take your phone abroad.
Thankfully there are ways to take control of your device and be free. Rather than feeling ensnared by your current carrier or paying expensive roaming charges internationally, you can easily unlock your device and use any SIM you want.
UnlockUnit is an online service for doing just that, regardless of current carrier, country, or what device you have. You can unlock your phone in just a few easy steps, which I’ll explore below.
Here are a few reasons why UnlockUnit could be a great choice for you.
UnlockUnit offers a fast and easy service. You don’t need any technical knowledge and you can rest assured that you’ll get the desired result with 24/7 customer support and a 100% money back guarantee. You could have your phone unlocked within minutes of contacting UnlockUnit.
It’s also cheaper than alternative methods. If your carrier offers unlocking, it likely charges 2 to 3 times as much as UnlockUnit for the same service and heading to a carrier store, and leaving your phone with them, is less convenient than completing the process in your own home. Same goes for local unlocking shops.
UnlockUnit is also ahead of the pack of online unlocking options. With over 200,000 customers, an excellent support team, and ability to track your order at any point, you eliminate the risk associated with many other service providers. UnlockUnit also has several YouTube tutorials talking you through the process for a number of the most popular devices.
￼Step 1: Check price and delivery time for your device
￼The easiest way to unlock your device is by code. UnlockUnit generates an unlock code specific to your device and sends it to you along with detailed instructions on how to implement it on your particular phone.
The price and delivery time varies by model, country, and carrier. In order to get an accurate quote from Unlock Unit, you’ll need to enter some basic information online:
UnlockUnit will then show you an exact price and let you know how long the unlocking process will take. You’ll have a few options for delivery times — if you don’t need your unlock code in a hurry, you can opt for later delivery times and save some cash.
Step 2: Pay Securely
Once you’re happy with the price and delivery timeframe, you can pay securely online. UnlockUnit accepts all the payment methods you’d expect including credit card and PayPal as well as Skrill and Bitcoin. Payment is secure, encrypted and transmitted using SSL.
Step 3: Unlocking your device
Once you receive your unlock code and specific device instructions, you’re ready to begin the unlocking process.
￼You’ll be given a code between 8 and 16 digits long depending on your device and all you have to do is follow a couple of simple steps:
Your phone should then confirm the unlock was successful and, if so, is now permanently unlocked. You are free to take your phone to whichever carrier you wish!
For iPhones, the process differs a little. The unlocking process is not based on an unlock code and is instead completed on Unlock Unit’s end. You’ll receive an unlock confirmation to your email once completed and a simple set of instructions, which mainly consists of connecting and disconnecting your iPhone to iTunes.
Before placing an order, it is important to find out if your phone is network-locked and if it will accept an unlock code.
This is straightforward enough to do — simply enter a SIM from another network provider into your phone. Most phones will then display a message like “SIM Network Unlock PIN” or “Enter network lock control key” at this stage. This means your phone is carrier-locked and will accept an unlock code.
Some devices, however, will display something like “Network Lock” or “Insert correct SIM” with no field to enter an unlock code. This is not a problem — UnlockUnit provides detailed instructions here on how to prompt an entry field for an unlock code. Worth testing out before placing an order.
