What is Mobile Phone Unlocking?
Networks put "locks" on your mobile phone so that you cannot use just any simcard from any network, for example Vodafone will lock their mobiles to Vodafone so that you can only use the phone with Vodafone. Its obvious why.. they want your custom and want you to be restricted to them, however we have a free market, and they should make it so that you can get choice if you need it. This created a whole new market selling "unlock codes"

How do I check to see if my phone is locked?
The simplest way to check if your phone is locked is to insert a SIM card from another network and see if the phone will accept it. If your phone is locked you will often see an error message of some kind. These messages vary depending on your handset manufacturer. Here are some examples:
Nokia: "Enter restriction code"  or  "SIM card rejected"
Motorola: "Enter special code" or "Enter Subsidy code"
Ericsson: "Enter Correct SIM"
Sony Ericsson: "Incorrect SIM"
Samsung: "Invalid Network SIM...Enter Code"
Panasonic: "Invalid SIM"
Siemens: "Phone disabled! NETWORK LOCK"
Sharp:  "Invalid Network SIM"

If you do not have access to a SIM card from another network then there is a less scientific method you can use to check if your handset is locked. Simply look to see if your network has placed their logo on your phone somewhere. For example in the UK orange always lock their handsets and they always "badge" their phones with their own Orange logo either on the front or the back of the handset

Mobile Unlocking Options

In the early days of unlocking when I first began to run this website, very few unlock code options where available, most unlocking tended to be using software and files that you uploaded to your phone. Sometimes this was a straightforward and easy process, however for some mobile phones this could only really be done by proffessionals as it was too complicated and in some cases there was a risk of damaging your mobile phone while trying to unlock it. Nowadays though this is a totally different situation, not only are there very many unlock codes available for very many more models the software is so advanced a child could use it. With most companies supplying cables with their mobiles this also allowed many more to unlock their mobile phone than ever before.

Safest Mobile Unlocking Option

The safest way to unlock your mobile phone is without doubt the use of unlock codes. These are usually one code that you enter into your keypad and it unlocks the phone restriction so that you can use ANY simcard. No experience is needed and its a simple procedure, purchase from us and we will give you full support.

Where unlock codes are sourced

Most companies on the internet source their codes indirectly from the manufacturers or networks that have locked the phones. Some are higher up the "chain" than others, however its impossible to tell which are higher up the chain. Price isnt an indication, however its pretty certain that if you purchase a "cheap" code from a less established website theres a good chance you either will not get what you asked for or you will not get the support that you need if anything goes wrong, due to the fact that many cheaper sites are automated, with noone actually doing much communication with their customers, they are basically "code factories" churning out codes with little care on customer experience.
