When a carrier sells a phone to you or anyone else they place a software lock on it, making it impossible to use your phone on a different carrier. In turn people are forced to purchase a brand new expensive phone every time they switch carrier's and pay horribly expensive roaming charges every time they travel. It's your phone, you should be able to do with it what you please. Cell phone unlocking is unlocking your phone to use on another carrier, plain and simple. It disables that network lock and allows you to enter any sim card from any carrier you choose. All it requires is typing a short unlock code into the cell phone's dial pad and pressing enter. No cables, confusing directions, or technical smarts needed. It's as easy as making a phone call! Cell Phones have so many amazing capabilities, this is one of them! Unlocking your cell phone opens up the full potential of your cell phone and helps enhance the user experience to the max! Because cell phone unlocking has become so popular the last few years we get people from all over the globe and from all walks of life. Family's trying a network with a better plan, people saving money by switching to a cheaper pre-paid carrier, service men and women serving overseas, student's studying abroad for the semester, entrepreneurs who buy and sell phones, the list goes on and on. What are you waiting for? Let's unlock your phone!
Unlocking your phone online is the easiest, fastest, and most convenient way of unlocking your cell phone guaranteed! The whole process is incredibly easy, only takes a few steps, and requires absolutely zero technical knowledge. So, let's get started! First, you'll want to get your phones 15 digit "IMEI" number by typing *#06# into the dial-pad, this is the phones serial number and is specific to only your phone.
Second, using the drop-down buttons above, enter your phones: Country purchased from, Original Carrier, Manufacturer, Model, & finally your phones IMEI number that you got earlier. Click "Get Unlocking Code" and check out securely via Paypal. We will retrieve the Unlock Code from their manufacturer database, and lastly send it back to us. We will email you the unlock code & unlocking instructions to the email that you provide us in the time stated on the website. Once received, simply power on your cell phone with a sim card that belongs to a different carrier than that of your phone, soon as the phone boots up it will immediately recognize the non accepted sim card and a box will pop up prompting you to enter the unlock code. After you do so, double check it's correct, press enter, and it will alert you it's been accepted. Your phone may or may not re-boot, and now your phone is 100% factory unlocked for any carrier in the world! You now have the freedom to use your phone on whatever carrier you choose! Unlocking your phone has truly never been easier!
The most common one would be unlocking your phone in order to switch networks. Millions of people do this on a weekly basis across the globe, it is actually a very common and beneficial thing that most phone owner's will do over the life span of their favorite phone. A few of the main reasons people find themselves switching carrier's every couple years is lower prices, larger coverage, better plans, faster 4g speed, special offers, and much more. Not to mention, the list of carrier's to choose from is growing by the year! What's important to us and a huge benefit of unlocking is when they move from carrier to carrier people are able to keep using the same phone without having to purchase a brand new one every time they switch. The beauty of an unlocked phone is you just simply enter the new carrier's sim card and it picks up signal within seconds. The second of the two main benefits to unlocking your phone is being able to travel and not worry about roaming charges. Bring your unlocked phone with you and once you arrive at your destination simply purchase a local pre-paid sim card, enter it and walla it works! Save hundreds during your trip and when you get home just swap that out for your old sim card and you're back in business. This works great for people going on vacation, traveling for work, study abroad or our military stationed overseas. Hope this was able to help you understand the world of unlocking a little more and all the great things that come with it.
Once unlocked you will be able to use any Gsm Carrier in the world! As long as the carrier uses sim cards, more than 99% currently do, then you are good to go my friend! This includes all post paid networks, prepaid networks, little networks, big networks, domestic networks, international networks, on and on. Wireless freedom at the tip of your fingers! There's over 750 different carrier's in the world and you are free to indulge. Travel to any country on the globe and never have to worry about falling out of touch or getting slammed with ridiculous roaming charges. Swap sim cards back and forth as many times as you please until you find the right network for you. There's a lot of companies out there fighting for your business and we see no reason why you should be tied down to just one for years at a time. Having an unlocked phone puts you in the power position and gives you the options to choose! You cannot use your phone on any CDMA network once unlocked, which includes Sprint, Verizon, Boost and US Cellular to name a few.
Unlocking a cell phone will allow the phone to call/text on any GSM network in the world. To get data/internet going it it as simple as getting the APN settings from the new carrier (that you plan on using). Just get ahold of the new carrier and ask them for this. Once you move it over, everything (in most scenarios) will work as it did before.
Data and the service we provide (Phone unlocking) are separate and not the same thing. Unlocking the phone will allow calls/text. Enabling the data deals with the new carrier and not phone unlocking.

Yes and that's actually a very smart move. Pre-paid carrier's don't lock you down to a lengthy and expensive contract for years at a time and also are usually over half the cost.

As people smarten up and competition grows we have definitely seem a big swing towards pre-paid networks the last couple years.
Yes by almost 50%. When you sell the phone make sure you unlock it first because more buyers will be interested in purchasing and that drives the price up.
