SIM Network Unlock PIN

Most Android phones are quite simple to navigate.  Best of all, they feature access to a variety of apps that you can use to simply your life.  But what happens if you need to unlock your phone from your network carrier?  The best answer is to contact UnlockBase for an unlock code.  Whether you’re traveling overseas and need your phone unlocked or you simply want to switch carriers, UnlockBase simplifies the process of making your phone compatible with other networks.

SIM Network Unlock Pin Means You Need an Unlock Code

When you go to unlock your phone, all you need to do is insert a SIM card from the carrier you want to switch to.  If your phone is locked, it will likely display the message SIM Network Unlock PIN.  This means that you’ll need to buy an unlock code from a reputable service provider.

You’ll Need Your IMEI Number to get an Unlock Code

Keep in mind that you’ll need your phone’s IMEI number to buy the unlock code.  On most phones, you can easily identify your IMEI number by typing *#06# and hitting the send or call button.  You’ll receive a message with the IMEI number.

Unlocking Your Phone is Simple

After giving your IMEI number to an unlock code service provider and receiving the code, you’ll enter it into your phone and hit the unlock button.  It’s as simple as that.  If for some reason the unlock code doesn’t work, this most likely means there have been too many failed attempts.  To overcome this problem, you’ll need to do a full reset on your phone.  You’ll also want to make sure that your new SIM card is valid.  For more information on how to unlock your phone, simply contact us today.

The Takeaway

Basically, if your phone displays SIM Network Unlock PIN, it’s asking for an unlock code, which you can purchase from UnlockBase.  We will provide you with a detailed tutorial on how to unlock your phone, and best of all, we provide discounts on many of our unlocking options.

Unlock Samsung Galaxy S6 from T-Mobile USA

The Samsung Galaxy S6 (SM-G920) & Samsung Galaxy S6 Edge (SM-G925T) cell phone from T-Mobile USA are both using a custom firmware preventing the phone from being unlocked by code as there is no way to enter it (these phone are simply not asking for “SIM Network Unlock PIN”). Before this post, the only way to Unlock the phone was by using the official T-Mobile  “Mobile Device Unlock App” which is an Android app called “Device Unlock” that allows you to request and apply a mobile device unlock directly from the device.

Blackberry Unlocking Tutorial

One of the most popular phones brand on the market today is still BlackBerry. The versatile cell phones from BlackBerry boasts a wide-range of features, including Internet access, appointment scheduling, and still for most of their phones the physical keyboard…  But as with any type of phone, it’s only good if it can work on your local carriers. If your BlackBerry is locked, then you’ll want to take the time to have it unlocked. Fortunately, there’s a six-step process you can follow to unlock your BlackBerry.

Step 1: Identify your Unlock Code

First, you’ll need to identify your unlock code, and to do this you’ll need your phone’s IMEI number.

  • On a BlackBerry 10, click the Advanced tab under the phone’s Settings.
    A dropdown menu should include a Hardware Tab. Click it and you’ll see your IMEI number.
  • On a BlackBerry 6, 7, 8 or 9 you need to click Device under the Options menu.
    Now click Device Status Information, and you can find your IMEI.
  • If you have a BlackBerry 5 or earlier version, simply click Status under the Options menu, and you’ll see your IMEI.

Or simply phone this number *#06# with your keypad.

Step 2: Call, chat online or visit your carrier in person 

Now you will need to contact your carrier; most will unlock it for free if your contract is up.  Tell them you would like to unlock your phone and that you already have the phone’s IMEI number.  If your contract with the carrier is not up, then you may have to take a different route of getting your phone unlocked.

Step 3: Taking an alternative route

If your carrier refuses to give you an unlock code, you can always pay a third-party service provider for one. Before choosing a third-party service provider.  The provider will need your phone’s IMEI number, and although receiving the unlock code may take up to three days, in most cases, it only takes a few hours.

Step 4: Entering you unlock code

Once you have your unlock code, you’ll need to go to your phone’s Settings and select the Security and Privacy tab.  Then click on SIM Card and scroll down until you see Unlock Phone.  Click this tab and enter your code, followed by clicking on OK.  Do keep in mind that you have only 10 attempts to enter the number or otherwise your phone will be disabled.

Step 5: Entering your unlock code on a BlackBerry 7

On a BlackBerry 7, all network connections must be disabled before entering your unlock code.  To turn off these connections, go to Manage Connections and turn off WiFi and mobile networks.

Then go to your SIM Card menu and type “MEPD.”  A new menu will pop up and your Network should appear as Active.  If you have a 71xx, 81xx, 91xx model, instead of typing “MEPD,” you’ll need to type “MEPPD.”

Now type “MEP[Alt]2″.  You may then have to type “MEP[Alt]4″ if nothing happens.  Remember that pressing the Alt key is suggested so that you can type numbers.  For 71xx, 81xx, and 91xx models, you will instead need to type “MEPP[Alt]2″ or “MEPP[Alt]4″.

At this point, you will now enter your unlock code.  Fortunately, you have 255 tries, so it’ll be hard to mess up entering your code the right way.  Once you have entered it correctly, insert your new SIM card.  You can then re-enable your network connections to.

Step 6: Entering your unlock code on a BlackBerry 6 or older version

Simply remove the old SIM card and replace it with the new one.  Turn the phone back on and enter your unlock code
