It is no longer common for companies to offer a free handset when you contract their services. Currently most of them offer free cell phones for a fee, but there are exceptions. If you have a device that “belongs” to a specific company and want to use it with another SIM card from another company… Don’t panic! Because YES: you can unlock your phone easy and cheap and use it with the network carrier of your choice.
How to unlock your phone easy and cheap?
The first thing you need to do is check if the phone is actually unlocked. If you are asked for a network unlock code or we get a message saying the SIM card is not valid (which happens with iPhones or Android phones that are locked by specific applications), it means your device has restricted access to the network.
If your phone is not unlocked, you will have to unlock it to be able to use it with the carrier of your choice.
At doctorSIM we have a 100% online phone unlocking service. Simply click here and complete the form to unlock your phone. You’ll need to enter your email address and the phone’s IMEI code.
Obtaining the IMEI code of your cell phone is very simple. If you do not know what it is, don’t worry, it’s only a 15-digit number that identifies your cell phone, like its ID. In order to get it you just have to dial *#06# on the call screen of your phone and it will appear on the screen.
Once you have completed your order, our technical team will get to work with your unlocking and you will receive instructions with the steps to follow in order to make the unlocking effective in your device.
You should know that this process can take from a few minutes to 6 to 15 working days, so please be patient.
Finally after all this process, you will be able to use any SIM card from any company on your phone.
Anyway, keep in mind that unlocking a phone is a legal process and does not affect the phone’s warranty, so you don’t have to worry about it.
Once you have a completely unlocked phone, you’re free to choose!
Now it’s time for you to think about what services you need and what you want to pay for.
There are plenty of options available depending on your country, whether prepaid or postpaid, and trust us, you don’t need to spend a fortune to have everything you need on your phone!
And remember that, if you choose to get a prepaid SIM card, you can always top it up with airtime, bundles or data plans at doctorSIM. You will always get the best rate and the best benefits from our exclusive promotions. It’s 100% online, with no hidden fees and your top-up will go through in the blink of an eye.
