Unlock Network Latest News & Infos

With a 5.3 inch screen, 554 ppm pixel density, Qualcomm Snapdragon 820 chipset processor and Android Marshmallow running at full power, the LG G5 is a truly impressive phone. If you want to use the G5 on a different networks, you likely need to unlock the phone. This cuts off the service provider’s connection and allows you to take it with you to a different network. The LG G5 is one of the latest smartphones to hit the market. While available on most wireless carriers such as Verizon, AT&T, T-Mobile and others, it may not be available on other carriers. To open the phone up and allow it to function with a new carrier, the best way to unlock the device is with the aid of an unlock code.

How to unlock LG G5

When to look beyond your unlock code

You may need to take advantage of a remote unlocking service instead of just an unlock code. T-Mobile in the United States uses a specific locking application on the phone that prevents a code from working. This means it requires a manual hard reset and the code will not work. When this is the case, it is necessary to use a third party service provider to unlock the phone. If you use any other carrier though, you won’t have a problem.

Unlocking the LG G5

First, you need to obtain the unlock code. You receive this from Unlock Network, where you pay a few dollars for the code. The override code is specific to just your phone. First, you need to determine the IMEI. To find this out, dial *#06# on your phone or remove the battery and look on the sticker found under it. Provide this information when requesting the unlock code to receive the appropriate code for your device.

Turn off your phone and remove the current SIM card. Now, insert the different SIM card from your chosen new wireless provider. Power the phone on and wait for a screen to appear saying “Enter unlock/subsidiary code”. It may also say “SIM Network Unlock PIN”. Whatever it says, input your received unlock code. Once the code is scanned, the LG G5 will state “Unlock Successful.”

Using the new SIM card from any carrier

With the phone unlocked, your mobile phone will now obtain all necessary service information from the SIM card. This basically informs the phone of your wireless carrier and your phone number. So, if you are traveling internationally and what to use the same phone but have a different number (as it is typically cheaper), you can simply power down the phone and insert a new SIM. With the unlocked LG G5, you have no boundaries and can take it anywhere you want to go.

 Unlocking the Sony Xperia Z5, Z5 Compact and Z5 Premium may be easier than you think. Phone unlocking has become a big deal in recent years as it adds much more accessibility and many more options for the phone in the future. Not only that, but it will also allow you to connect your phone with any carrier you want! The most famous worldwide carriers for these handsets are T-Mobile, Sprint and AT&T in the US, while in the UK it will be O2, Vodafone and EE.

Sony Z5 / Premium / Compact Network Unlocking Code

Starting with the Xperia Z5 Compact, the easiest way you can get an unlock code is by removing the battery from your handset and locating the IMEI number. Once you have located the number you need to replace your battery and turn your phone back on. You can use an unlocking service like our own to get your unlock code with your IMEI number. Another way to obtain the IMEI code is to dial *#06# on your phone’s keypad.

Now that you have your unlock code you need to replace your SIM card with one from a non-accepted network. When you turn your phone back on, you will be prompted to enter your unlock code. At that point you should enter the NCK code for most of the networks, such as T-Mobile. If your phone requires another lock level activation, you might need to enter the sub network code, also called ‘SPCK code’ which you will be provided. Congratulations, your phone is now unlocked!

Unlocking the latest Galaxy S7

With the Samsung S7 high in demand, it comes as no surprise that many people have purchased the smartphone on a contract in order to get their hands on it first. On the upside, you’ve got this year’s must-have piece of technology in your hands on release day – the downside of course is that your handset may be locked to its original network, which is bad news if you want to use your Galaxy S7 on a different network, or perhaps even sell it on or exchange it a year or two down the line. Being locked to a network has its limitations, which is why so many people need to utilise a phone unlocking service in order to get the most out of their new device. (more…)

Have you bought a new iPhone that happens to be locked? Be aware to distinguish iCloud activation locking from the locking of your iPhone by the carrier. When you buy a used iPhone, it may be locked by a carrier, in which case, you will be unable to use it with a SIM card from a different network, unless you are with the same carrier. Similarly, your used iPhone could be iCloud locked, for various reasons, but the steps for unlocking it are not the same.


Unlocking your iPhone: what is it and how to do it?

If you bought an iPhone from an individual or a reseller and it shows an error message when you put your SIM card in, it means, quite simply, that your iPhone is locked to a different carrier than yours. Thus, since you are not the real owner of the iPhone, the only solution is to ask the previous owner to make the request through their carrier, or, if you cannot contact the old owner, to simply use a paid service to unlock your iPhone, for under $20.

Many of you confuse your carrier-locked iPhone with your iCloud-locked iPhone. To make it simple, when buying a used iPhone, the owner must absolutely deactivate the “Find my iPhone” function in the settings before selling it. In the case that it’s not deactivated, it will be unusable as long as the real owner doesn’t delete the iPhone from his/her iCloud account. It is the same if you found an iPhone and the person declared the phone lost via their iCloud account. You will not be able to unlock it yourself. (more…)

After receiving many questions from all over the world, we decided to highlight key facts about our unlocking procedure in a dedicated blog post. By doing so, our aim is to demonstrate both the extent of our expertise and the value of our proposition.
Today’s wireless market is highly diversified. In the past few years, low-cost carriers have entered the market and triggered a higher need for greater freedom amongst consumers.

A Result Of Carriers’ Policy

Most handsets are sold through deals combining a device and a plan subsidising the device. As a way of securing their investment and enforcing retention, carriers lock devices so they can only be used on their networks of origin.
Locking is implemented through lucrative trade agreements passed with manufacturers. This allow carriers to attractively price state-of-the-art devices. As a result, both your choices of carrier and manufacturer impact the unlock procedure.

How did they lock my phone ?

Warning : your phone may be locked in different ways.
The SIM card lock is when your phone prompt for a 4-digits PIN. If you didn’t setup your own personal PIN, by default it should be 0000 or 1234. A PUK is required to unlock SIM cards that have become locked after three successive incorrect PIN entries. PUK codes are delivered by your carrier only.

SIM Unlocking, on the other hand, consists SOLELY of unlocking your device from its original network. Unlocking has been misrepresented as phone hacking by people confusing SIM lock and network lock. But hacking has nothing to do with SIM unlocking or network unlocking. (more…)
