How do I Know if my Cell Phone is Locked or not?
GSM phones work with a SIM card, and a phone that is locked to a carrier cannot operate or get connected to the network of another carrier, so basically, the fastest and easiest way to confirm if your phone is unlocked or not is insert a SIM card from a different carrier than the one that sold you the phone and see if it works.
If the mobile phone needs to be unlocked, you will see an error message on your screen saying “SIM Not Supported” or “Invalid SIM”, and a little box for you to insert an unlock code. However, there is another way to confirm if you need to unlock your phone or not:
For iPhones and other Apple Devices
For iPhones or Apple devices in general, you just need to go to your settings; if you click on “general,” the first option you will see is “about.” Go there. Scroll down, and if there is a message saying “No SIM Restrictions” right after the “Carrier Lock” tab, you don’t need to unlock the phone and are able to use it with a different network if you wish.
For Samsung Galaxy and other Android Phones
For Samsung Galaxy or Android devices in general, go to your settings and scroll down until you find the “Security and Privacy” tab, click on it, and open the “Other Security Settings” option; the very first tab you will see is “Set Up SIM Card Lock.” click on it.
If that feature is deactivated, you don’t need to unlock the device, as it is already free to use with any carrier. If it’s activated (and when you click on it, it asks you to enter an unlock code), you need to have your carrier unlock your phone.
How do I Unlock a Phone from a Carrier?
To unlock your phone from a carrier in Canada you will need to get the code to unlock it, this can be done by either contacting the mobile carrier to make the request and see if they can help you unlock your device or you can use SafeUnlocks’ third-party unlocking services.
With the carrier, your phone can be unlocked for free; however, the process usually takes a while and can get very complicated depending on the carrier (remember that companies are always seeking what is best for them, and keeping their customers on their cell phone network is part of that).
Also, keep in mind that only the legitimate owner of the device (who must be in good standing with the carrier) can make this request, so if you purchased a secondhand device and its original owner cannot be contacted, the only option you have is to use our online service to unlock the phone.
SafeUnlocks’ Phone Unlock Service
Unlocking sites have been around for a long time, and nowadays you can get a free network to unlock code advertised to be able to unlock any phone, or you can pay high amounts of money to access premium unlocking services.
However, in terms of security, the most recommendable thing is to avoid entering your device information and personal data on websites with no SSL certifies or such, and in economic terms, it seems unnecessary and kind of a scam to be asked to pay approximately $50 (which is what they usually charge) only to network unlock a phone or check your device.
SafeUnlocks turn out to be the best option when unlocking your devices, these are the reasons why:
- After the unlock your phone will be able to connect to any cellular data network.
- The cost to unlock your phone is $1, this is a one-time charge and there are no hidden fees.
- After the device is unlocked it will remain unlocked, our service is complete and permanent.
- All you need is a working email address (make sure you have access to it) and your phone’s IMEI number.
Can I Unlock both an iPhone and an Android Phone with SafeUnlock’s?
Yes! SafeUnlocks’ third-party unlocking services are compatible with any phone’s brand, model, and version, so it doesn’t matter if you want to unlock your iPhone or you want to unlock your Android; with SafeUnlocks, it is possible because we check your phone specifications with its IMEI number, and based on that information, we create a code that is compatible with that exact device for you to enter the unlock code on it and unlock it.
In addition, it doesn’t matter which carrier may have locked the device (actually, it doesn’t even matter if you don’t know which carrier locked it at all), SafeUnlocks can eliminate the lock from any carrier in Canada at any time, all you have to do is go to our website from another cell phone than the one you are going to unlock (or a computer if you rather to), and follow the unlocking instructions.
Is it Safe to use SafeUnlocks’ GSM Unlock Software in Canada?
Unlocking your phone is completely secure with SafeUnlocks; we have enabled SSL certificates that will encrypt all the information entered on the website so that no one can access it, and at the end of the process, the system automatically eliminates everything related to your device. Also, before you can unlock your phone, you must create an account and choose a username and password. With this security measure, we hope to ensure that you are the only person who has access to your data.
Now, talking about your device’s safety, after you finish the unlock process, you will be able to use your phone as if it were brand new. The process does not affect the device’s performance or any particular feature, so you can rest assured that its functionality won’t be impacted.
