Unlock your Cell Phone

Use Your GSM phone on any compatible network

GSM cell phones are designed to work with any service provider.

In theory, all you need to do is swap the SIM account card in the
phone. But some service providers 'lock' the phone they sell you.
Don't worry - we can help you unlock your phone.

If you own a GSM type cellphone that you purchased at a discounted
price when you signed up for service, the chances are that the cell
phone company has 'locked' your phone so it will only work with their

Here's how to simply and quickly unlock your phone so you can use it
with any GSM service provider and SIM, anywhere in the world.

Phones are naturally unlocked, but a service provider might lock them

When originally manufactured, all GSM cell phones are unlocked. That
is, they can be used with any SIM from any cellphone service provider
- always assuming, of course, that the cellphone service provider has
compatible GSM service on the same frequency bands that the phone can
operate on.

Most cell phone service providers electronically 'lock' the phone so
that it can only be used with their service. There are obvious reasons
why they choose to do this - in particular, to force you to pay what
are usually very high roaming charges when you take your phone out of
their network and use it elsewhere in the world.

Fortunately, this locking is reversible. With some phones, it is
possible to simply enter an unlocking password code into the phone and
it is immediately then unlocked. Other phones need to be connected up
to a special unlocking data terminal.
