Samsung Unlocking Guide and  FAQ's



What Is Unlocking?


Unlocking your Samsung enables you to use your Samsung with the network of your choice


When you purchase an Samsung either on pay-as-you-go or on a contract, the network carrier includes a SIM card.


Network carriers "lock" your Samsung so it works only with their specific SIM card.  The only reason they lock your 

Samsung to work with there SIM card is to ensure you use their service for an extended period of time.  If you attempt

to use an alternative SIM card in a locked Samsung, you will receive error messages, such as SIM Card Not Accepted or please activate, etc


Unlocking your Samsung enables you to use it with any SIM card from any GSM network in the world. 


Aside from being able to use your Samsung with the GSM network of your choice there are many other great benefits

Additional Phone Features.

An unlocked Samsung can use a dual SIM adapter. This enables your Samsung to accommodate two SIM cards so you don't have to physically switch from one to another. A mobile phone with dual SIM cards is great for those who frequently travel abroad or who want to separate work and leisure calls. The majority of these SIM adapters no longer require you to modify your mobile phone, and the process 

is as easy as switching your phone off and on again.  You can find many of these adapters in cellphone stores and on ebay.


Increased Resale Value.

If you decide to sell your Samsung, you will find that an unlocked one is up to 300% more valuable than a locked one.
