What is Mobile Phone Unlocking?

What you need to know about your Mobile phone and network provider.

These days, most mobile phones come “locked” to a particular network (i.e. Vodafone, Virgin, Orange, T-Mobile, O2, etc). This means that you will only be able to use your mobile phone on the network from which it was originally purchased. For example if you purchased a phone from Vodafone and later wanted to change your service provider to Virgin, your new Virgin SIM card would not work in the mobile phone you bought from Vodafone.

This can be frustrating for several reasons. It can get very expensive if you have to purchase a new mobile phone every time you change network service providers. And for the frequent travelers your roaming charges would cost you a fortune. For the bargain shoppers or if you are the person who is looking for the next best deal on your mobile phone service plan, a locked phone can make this very difficult and costly.

The only solution to solve the problems listed above is to unlock your mobile phone. It is completely legal and is a more cost effective way to get the greatest use out of your mobile phone. The only reason that your network provider lock their mobile phones is to discourage you from changing your mobile phone service to a different network provider, thereby keeping your business until you buy a new phone from a different network.

What does it mean to unlock your phone?

When a wireless network provider ‘lock’ their phones, it means that their phones have been programmed to only work with SIMs issued by their company. Unlocking reverses the programming put on your phone by the network so it can work with any SIM on any compatible GSM network around the world.

What are the Benefits of unlocking your phone?

The benefits of unlocking your mobile phone are:
If you have purchased a mobile phone that you like and have learned how to use, and want to change from one GSM wireless company to another one, you do not have to buy a new phone.
