Unlock Code Entry Instructions

Home| Terms | Contact
Attention: Read before proceeding if you do not wish to damage your handset.

What your Unlock Code does.

We have provided an unlock code to unlock your handset from your current network provider. This will allow you to use sim cards from other network providers in your handset.

The code we have provided is not the security pin code for either your sim card or handset. This is a 4 digit security pin that is set by yourself and only known to you. After 3 incorrect entries your handset will lock and require your PUK code. If you can't remember your security pin you will need to phone your network provider and they will provide you with your PUK code for free. This will remove the pin you have set. Likewise the code we have provided is not your PUK code.

You must use a valid sim

In most cases you will need a sim from a network other than the one you handset is locked to for the unlocking process. Do not attempt to unlock your phone with a brand new or untested sim.

If your sim is brand new it will need to be activated either by calling your network, or with a Pay As You Go sim you may need to top it up. It will not work straight out of the box. Verify your sim is working and can make/recieve calls in a handset that can accept it before attempting to unlock with it.

Using the correct instructions

Each handset only has a certain number of attempts to enter the unlock code correctly, after 10 incorrect attempts your handset will be hardlocked. As this is the case it is important to make sure you have the correct unlock instructions for your handset and that you enter the code correctly. If you recieve an error upon entering a code, do not use all your attempts entering the same code over and over. You should contact us and we will be able to guide you.

Instructions vary from model to model, we have provided a number of instructions below. As there are thousands of handsets on the market and new models released all the time we may not have your particular handsets instructions listed. There are a number of instructions videos on youtube and it is recommended that you search there for your instructions as you can get a visual step by step guide for your handset

Youtube: (replace Blackberry 8900 with your handset)

Google: (replace Blackberry 8900 with your handset)


If you have used the correct instructions for your handset and have recieved an error message please Contact Us. We will be able to recheck with the manufacturer to ensure the correct code was issued. Sometimes identical handsets locked to different networks may have varying instructions on how to enter the unlock code and this may be the case.

Unlock Codes are unique to every handset and dependent on the Make, Model, IMEI and Network Provider the handset is currently locked to. We cannot be held responsible for incorrect information being supplied, your code was purchased from a supplier on your behalf and in cases like this a new order will be required to obtain the correct code. Likewise an order based on incorrect information cannot be returned or cancelled as it is unique and personalised goods.

How do I know if my handset is unlocked or not?

If your handset is locked and you place a sim from a different service provider inside you will not be able to use any of your phones normal functions and a message like 'emergency calls only' will appear. If you can use the phones normal functions but can't make a call, this means your phone has been unlocked, but may not be working with your new network due to one of the issues mentioned below.

Possible Issues After Unlocking

Please note that most handsets use GSM technology. A few other networks like Verizon network use a technology called CDMA and only allow handsets which they have sold to join thier network. An unlocked GSM handset will not work on these networks.

GSM signals can be broadcast different frequency bands and you can check here the frequency of the network you are trying to use. Most modern phones support multiple frequencies and you can check this on your manufacturers website. This is especially relevant if you are travelling abroad.

GSM handsets also operate based on second (2G) and third (3G) generation standards. Older handsets supporting 2G with newer handsets supporting both. Again you can check this on your manufacturers website. Nearly every GSM network provider supports both standards. Hutchison 3G (Three) in the UK however, is an exception and only supports 3G handsets. We are not aware of any other networks that operate his policy but this should also be noted.

Trouble Shooting

"Code Error" or "Sim Network Unlock Unsuccessful" What do I do?

* Please check your IMEI number by pressing *#06#, this is the most common reason the code doesn't work. If the first 15 digits which appear is different from the 15 digit IMEI number provided above, please reply directly to this E-mail.

I can make Calls and Text but I'm not getting Internet Service.

In this case you will need to adjust what's called the APN settings. The APN settings vary depending on the service provider you are trying to use. Please contact your service provider and they can assist you setting this up. There is no separate unlock for data or internet. If you can call or text, your phone's network is fully unlocked.

My Phone is asking for the "PUK" or "Security Pin" or "Password"

If your phone is asking for one of the above, it is the Simcard personal password or phone security password NOT the Network Lock which we provide for you. You can contact your service provider for this. Once you bypass this, you can use the Network Unlock Code provided by us.

My Phone seems to be unlocked but I'm not getting any signal

First of all, we do request you contact the service provider to make sure after unlocking your device, your unlocked phone will be compatible on their network. Not all GSM phones are compatible with any Network after unlocking it. The unlocked phone must be able to support the Network's Frequency. If you are unsure of this, please contact them regading this.

After unlocking your phone, please pull the battery for a couple minutes and then restart the device. It may take a few minutes for your phone to pick up the new signal. Also go to your Network settings on your phone, and make sure the device can detect the signal from the simcard you are trying use.



Lost or Stolen Handsets

Any handset that has been reported lost of stolen will not function with any network. The IMEI is placed on a database of blacklisted handsets that all networks check. If you have a second hand handset and you cannot get your handset to function you may want to check this with your network provider.

After you have unlocked. MMS and Internet.

Once you have unlocked and placed a sim from your new network provider in the handset you will need additional network settings in order to send MMS and access the internet. If you phone your network provider and request these settings they will send you a text message which will install these settings for you.


Unlock Instructions

We have extensive unlock instructions below, please navigate to find your model. If you cant find instructions for your model please contact us and we will send them to you direct.
