How to unlock the Samsung Galaxy S5 Neo
The Galaxy S5 Neo is a powerful device, with a 5.1” high resolution display, 16 megapixel rear camera and 5 megapixel front camera, and an Octa-core 1.6GHz Exynos 7580 processor running the Android Lollipop operating system.
The Galaxy S5 Neo also has an excellent battery life, one of the best on the market. Unfortunately, you won’t have the freedom to take this phone to any network you choose unless you unlock it, essentially cutting ties with the service provider linked to the phone.
The easiest and safest way to unlock a Samsung phone is through an unlock code. You don’t need any technical skills, you only have to do it once and it won’t void your phone’s warranty.
How do unlock codes work?
GSM phones, like the Samsung Galaxy S5 Neo, are designed to work on any network as long as you insert a matching network SIM card. If a phone is locked, it means that it can only accept SIM cards from certain networks, like T-Mobile, for example (this is also known as a simlock).
To unlock it, you enter a code that matches the phone’s IMEI (a unique ID number on each phone). The unlock code tells the phone to stop restricting SIM cards from other carriers.
Get your unlock code
You can pay Unlock Network for the code to your Samsung Galaxy S5 Neo and have your phone unlocked in no time. It’s easy, affordable and completely safe. We use unlock codes provided directly by Samsung and it typically takes less than a day to get the code to you.
We also have a 100% money back guarantee and a dedicated 24 hour support team. We’ve unlocked over four million phones and yours can be next.
All you need to do to get your code is your phone’s IMEI. To do that, you have a few options:
- Open up your call screen and dial *#06#. When you’re done, your phone will automatically pop up a box with your IMEI in it
- Go to your settings icon and tap 'About device' followed by 'Status'. On the Status screen, the IMEI is toward the bottom of the page
- Remove your phone’s battery, and the IMEI is located underneath it
Unlocking your Samsung Galaxy S5 Neo
Once you have the code, insert a SIM card from your preferred network. Immediately, a screen will prompt you to ‘Enter Unlock Code’ or ‘SIM Network Unlock Pin'; these are are the same thing.
Enter your unlock code from Unlock Network and tap the unlock button.
Your phone will display the message ‘Network Unlock Successful’ and that’s it! Your Galaxy S5 Neo is unlocked and you have the freedom to take your phone to any network or country you want.
