What is unlocking?

If your mobile phone is locked to one network, you will need to get it unlocked in order to use it with other networks.

This is not to be confused with unblocking (modifying a handset that has been reported lost or stolen). Unblocking is very much illegal, and is a service we do not offer.

Why can't some unlocks be done same-day?

Modern smartphones have extra security to prevent quick unlocks, meaning we must wait for the network to provide the unlocking code.

I have a question about unlocking.

Please contact us for advice.
