Many network providers will SIM lock a mobile phone in order to enforce loyalty to them as a network carrier and provider. This is not great for customers, when they reach the end of a contract and now want to use a different provider for a better deal.
It can also be difficult for those who buy a mobile phone second hand, and the phone is locked to a different carrier to the one they use. But with android phones there is a way to get around this quickly and easily, and importantly, safely. You just need to find a specialist who can unlock android devices. You can even do this from the comfort of your own home online in no time at all for any device and make of phone. It will give you a lot more freedom to be able to choose the provider that works best for you.
Unlock your device online with a few simple steps
It is usually a simple three step process. Just go to the unlocking site and find your make and model. When you submit it the code will be provided by a secure saver and sent to you within a few hours. This method of unlocking high-end, mid-range or lower end mobile phones or smartphones by IMEI is totally secure and doesn’t affect the warranty.
All types of carrier can be unlocked this way, such as C Spire, AT&T, US Cellular, Cingular, Cricket, Nextel, Sprint, T-Mobile, Verizon, MetroPCS, Tracfone, Boost Mobile, Aio, StraightTalk, H20 Wireless, Simple Mobile, Virgin Mobile, Family Mobile, Xfinity Mobile and Viaero en USA.
It can also be done for a wide range of android devices, from manufacturers like Samsung, iPhone, Sony, Nokia, Motorola, HTC, Huawei, LG, ZTE, Alcatel, Blackberry, among many others.
It is easy to unlock any device with a code
All types of mobile device, like the Samsung Galaxy Note 9 for example, can be unlocked using a simple code. With the Samsung, when you insert a SIM from a different network carrier than the one the mobile phone is locked to, it will request a SIM network unlock PIN, or if you have entered the PIN incorrectly too many times you can use the PUK code instead.
You can get the network code from Movical, which even has solutions for those networks that block the firmware of the device to prevent easy unlocking. This will involve connecting a USB cable and allowing a technical to remotely connect to the device and unlock the device firmware. Once this is done you can insert a SIM from any provider from any country.
You can also root your device to get more control over features
Getting root access to your android device can have a lot of benefits, but you do need to be careful and understand what you are doing. It is similar to running a PC as an administrator and can give you a lot of power to change things in the system software. For example, say you have a Samsung mobile running on android and there is an app that came with the device, sometimes referred to as bloatware because they use up system memory and you can’t disable it. By rooting the device you can disable or remove the app.
You will have full access and control over almost all subsystems, and it allows customisation. You will be able to run unofficial apps, flash custom ROMs and update android versions no longer supported. Typically phone manufacturers will only support maybe one or two Android version updates after launch, and so when official support has ended, rooting the mobile device might be the only way to update to the latest version.
