Great Phones We Unlock: ZTE Avid PLUS from MetroPCS

This is another new phone making its debut at CES Las Vegas this month. It’s an entry level model from ZTE, a fast growing Chinese multinational telecommunications equipment and systems company headquartered in Shenzhen, Guangdong, China.

The all new ZTE Avid® PLUS is designed with comfort, convenience and the budget conscious in mind. It works quickly and efficiently enough, powered by a Qualcomm® 1.1 GHz quad-core processor matched with fast nationwide 4G LTE network. And if it’s affordability you’re after, the deal from MetroPCS doesn’t get any better. With an original price of $119, MetroPCS, after mail-in rebate MetroPCS are offering the phone at just $29.00!

The phone comes with an on-trend 5″ LCD screen with pixel density of 196 ppi, which allows you to enjoy pictures, play games and watch videos, while the screen is protected with Dragontrail™ scratch-resistant glass.

Camera technology on the Avid PLUS is a bit basic, nothing more, and nothing less than you would expect from a budget phone. There’s a 2MP front-facing camera and a 5MP rear-facing camera, with 720 pixel video recording which means you can easily capture what’s going on around you at short notice. There are effects including Color Effect, Scene Mode and Anti-Flicker to help you create quality photographs, but of course at this lvel of pixellation, you can expect some pictures to be grainy.

The ZTE Avid Plus was not designed as a high-end smartphone. Internal storage starts at 8GB upgradeable with a microSD slot to 32GB. The phone is made from an all-plastic build but still manages to have a quality feel when held. Unlike a lot of the newer generation phones, the Avid PLUS has a removable backing, allowing access to the replaceable battery, the SIM card slot, and the microSD card slot, which is much easier than trying to open the SD card and SIM card slots with the aid of a supplied pin to press into a tiny slot in the side.

The phone runs on Android Lollipop 5.1 and includes a built-in battery saver with additional security features and enhanced WiFi/Bluetooth controls

The resolution and pixel count is admittedly low as compared to more high end models, but with a MetroPCS price of just $29.00, it still represents outstanding value.

Great Phones We Unlock: LG K7 From Metro PCS

UnlockBase unlocks more phones from more cellphone providers around the world than any other online remote unlock website. We’re known to thousands of satisfied customers for our efficiency, our speed of response and our fair, cost effective pricing, – so much so that we won’t be beaten on price. If you can find an unlock deal online for the exact same phone model and service provider that is better than what we are offering, we guaranteed to match it or better it.

One of the latest smartphones we can unlock for customers using MetroPCS as their service provider is the popular LG K7 from South Korean company LG. It’s the younger brother of the more powerful K10. Making its debut this month at CES in Las Vegas, it’s not surprising the K7 is expected to be such a popular choice. That’s because this smartphone is the complete package. With this phone you can tap into both your creative and practical sides and enjoy a great experience either way. It has outstanding camera features, and solid, speedy performance at a price that truly won’t break the bank.

The LG K7 MS330, (or LG Tribute 5 as it is also known by some service providers), is a value for money Android phone with a slim arched screen and sleek back cover. Its 5-inch display is contained within a smart looking plastic design with a matte finish. MetroPCS will offer this phone as a pre-paid deal with an affordable price tag. In fact, the phone brand new costs $129.90, but with an after mail-in rebate you can have one shipped to you for just $49.00 online at MetroPCS.

LG like to describe their K Series as ‘glossy pebble design language’, so called due to the curved, modern finish of the phones, aimed squarely at a younger audience without a lot of budget to blow on a high-end smartphone. LG claim the design cues of the phone are borrowed from nature, and the phone certainly punches above its weight in terms of cost vs performance and looks.

The LG K7 is a 5-inch 854×480 resolution smartphone. It’s running on Android 5.1 Lollipop along with LG’s Optimus UI on top. It’s powered by a 1.3GHz quad-core processor, with 1GB or 1.5GB of RAM and 8GB of storage inside. There’s a microSD card slot inside, which can support an upgrade of up to 64GB of storage as well. LG has packed an 8MP camera in the back with a surprisingly good quality 5MP camera in the front. The phone is equipped with LG’s easy to use photo technology including Gesture Shot and Gesture Interval Shot, making the taking of selfies easy and hassle-free.

With Gesture Shot you can take photos simply by raising an open hand in front of the lens and then clenching it into a fist. When you close your hand twice the camera automatically goes into Gesture Interval Shot mode whereby it will run off four consecutive photos. There is also Flash for Selfie on the front to help capture moments on the fly, whenever, wherever the moment presents itself, even if it’s in the dark. The phone is powered by an 2125mAh battery that is non-removable, and therefore non-replaceable.

Great phones we unlock: LG V10 (H901) from T-Mobile USA

If you’re on the lookout for a large phone, a phone large enough to comfortably watch movies, TV shows and your favorite YouTube videos, then the new 5.7 inch LG V10 could be the phone you need.

Introduced at the beginning of October 2015, the LG V10 is the latest flagship phone from LG. Perhaps the key attribute of this phone is the fact it boasts an always on secondary 2.1-inch display above its main 5.7-inch quad HD screen to keep you abreast of information such as the date, time, weather, and battery life as well as app shortcuts and playback controls. This changes when you have the main display on, with the secondary panel giving you quick-access to apps, music controls, favorite contacts and notifications.

16 megapixel rear and two front selfie cameras

Like the LG G4, the V10 features a hexa-core Snapdragon 808 processor, with 4GB (1GB more than the LG G4) of RAM, 64GB of storage, a 16-megapixel rear camera, and not one but two 5-megapixel front cameras for wide-angle selfies. The phone runs on Android 5.1, and on T-Mobile, the V10 includes support for band 12 LTE connectivity. The battery is a 3,000 mAh cell, said to be pretty thirsty for regular charging.

Expert movie making

The V10’s strongest suite however, despite the two selfie cameras, is actually for video making on the go. The phone has a number of settings you can play with to fine tune your videos including the shutter speed, white balance, focus, frame-rate and a 21:9 aspect ratio which means you can shoot footage and watch it back on your widescreen TV in perfect Cinemascope quality with no distortion. 4K recording is also supported and there’s both optical and electronic image stabilization thanks to Steady Record, to ensure your footage doesn’t become a hand-held jerky nightmare. Also new is a 15 second Auto Edit which creates highlights of what you have just shot with none of the blurriness or shakes. If you are familiar with LG G4, you’ll be familiar with the rest of the controls on the camera on the V10 as it is based on the LG G4 which has been hailed as having one of the best Android phone cameras on the market.

LG V10 Camera

While the phone is available in the States and key markets in Asia, it is not yet available in Europe. Why? We don’t know.

The LG V10 T-Mobile deal

A 24 month contract on the LG V10 from T-Mobile will mean you can walk out the door with it for $0 down. Monthly repayments are $25.00. If you go the JUMP! On Demand route, again, it’s nothing down, but 18 payments of $25.00. If you want to own the phone outright the cost is $599.99

T-Mobile currently has a promo that pays out a $100 prepaid card when you buy the LG V10 and LG G Pad F 8.0 together when you buy one device on an Equipment Installment Plan, then buy the second on EIP within 30 days. Up till November 15 early bird T-Mobile customers were receiving a free 200GB microSD card, an extra 3000mAh battery, and a battery-charging cradle, but whether this deal will be repeated is unlikely.

About T-Mobile USA

With a workforce of 45,000, T-Mobile USA is a national provider of wireless voice, messaging, and data services capable of reaching over 293 million Americans where they live, work, and play. Around the country coverage can be quickly checked online by punching in your zip code. T-Mobile claims to have America’s fastest LTE network, and to be America’s fastest improving network having more than doubled their LTE coverage within 2 years, and by the end of 2015, they state they will have increased their reach to more than 300 million people across the country. The service provider’s Extended Range LTE is claimed to reach 2 times farther and works 4 times better in buildings.

Unlock your LG V10 (H901) with UnlockBase

Although it’s only been out for little over a month, of course UnlockBase already unlocks this phone for you. For this we use the Mobile Device Unlock App for Android specific to T-Mobile and the cost is $44.90. Delivery time is between 1 to 2 working days.

Great phones we unlock: Alcatel OneTouch Fierce XL from MetroPCS

A brand new offering from Alcatel, just released earlier this month, and described as the smartphone that gives you a vibrant onscreen experience packed with all the technology you need to power your mobile life.

The OneTouch Fierce XL (OT-5054N) features a 5.5-inch HD (720p) display screen, and is powered by the Qualcomm ® Snapdragon™ Quad-Core processor with 2GB of RAM, so it’s powerful enough to make multi-tasking nice and easy. The OS is Android 5.1 1 Lollipop. It comes with 16GB of available internal storage, generous for a phone in its price bracket, and you can also add an extra 32GB with a MicroSD card. The display resolution is 720p, which translates to 1,280 x 720 pixels.

The Alcatel OneTouch Fierce XL runs on a long-lasting 2500mAh battery offering 12 hours of talk time and 360 hours of standby. The phone also includes an 8MP auto-focus camera enhanced with Polaroid ™ software to enable editing, framing and sharing photos, as well as a not overly exciting 2MP front camera.

But what’s particularly fun about this phone is that in Polaroid mode you can get that old-fashioned instant camera look through the use of filters. This mode allows you to not only add the classic white border to your photos, but to also add the Polaroid classic border logo, as well as date, location, and text tags.

This big but budget priced Android phone was launched on November 2 through Metro PCS for just $140 on pay as you go. But it gets even better. Metro PCS has slashed the $140 price tag in half to offer the ONETOUCH Fierce at a 50% discount offered via a $70 rebate, so the phone, a full 5.5 inch phablet style device, is now down to only $70 overall.

As for Alcatel, its strategy these days to compete with the bigger players is to offer competitively priced Android phones tailored to exact cellphone provider specifications. That said, it is also possible to track down a Windows 10 version of the new phone. According to Alcatel, the phone supports WiFi Calling, HD voice, and VoLTE, and also supports 4G LTE Cat 4 networks. The phone also offers what is known as “enhanced Google Translate”, which allows for instant translations from or to 89 languages via writing, scanning, and speaking.

As for looks, well there’s nothing too radical going on here, it’s a Samsung inspired lookalike with a slim bezel designed with a sleek matte silver finish and rounded corners. The slim 9.45mm silhouette enables the phone to fit in purses and pockets with ease.

Service provider Metro PCS claims to offer coverage to 96% of America, and runs through T-Mobile from coast to coast. Metro PCS are one of the pioneers in offering pay as you go contracts so you are not necessarily stuck with the same phone for two whole years.

Get your Alcatel OneTouch Fierce XL unlocked now by UnlockBase.

The phone only went on sale on November 2. One week later and UnlockBase, the web’s leading remote unlock online service, has already got the Device Unlock App ready for you if you want to break out of jail and go with the sim card of your choice, and with our Price Match Promise we will unlock it for $24.00 or less if you can show us a genuinely better deal.

In fact UnlockBase offers unlock services for 1,119 Alcatel cell phone models. Since our launch we have successfully helped over 60,239 customers to unlock Alcatel cellphone devices.

So whether you want to unlock the latest OneTouch Fierce XL or an older Alcatel model, with UnlockBase you will find a solution fast. There’s no need to send us your phone, just provide us the Serial Number (IMEI) of your phone and we will promptly unlock it remotely.

How to unlock iPhone from AT&T USA

It can be well worthwhile shopping around for an iPhone from the States, especially if the dollar is at a competitive rate. Many customers buy an iPhone from there, either from a website, while enjoying a visit, or they can pick up a bargain deal for a used iPhone from home by visiting Ebay USA.

The fact is, the price of an iPhone from the USA is often cheaper than it is in Europe. For example, the Apple store price in the US for a 64GB iPhone 6 is $749, whereas in France it is €819. If we convert to euros, (taking a rate of $1.25/EUR on average over the last 12 months), that puts the price at around €600, a saving of almost €220!

However, the used iPhones sold from the United States are usually blocked by the cellphone service provider.

It’s therefore important to pay attention to whether the phone is SIM FREE, or UNLOCKED (i.e. free of any operator). If not, the cost of unlocking the phone will need to be added to the purchase price. If the phone is locked you might be able to convince the former owner to request that AT&T unlock the phone. If not, you will have no choice but to pay for an unlocking service.

Cost of unlocking a USA iPhone, contract or unpaid

To unlock an AT&T USA iPhone only costs about $9.9 and the service is usually activated within 24 hours. But if your iPhone is connected to an ongoing contract, or there are arrears on the account, then the rate and the period is higher (see the site for rates). So when you buy your used iPhone, be sure to ask the owner if it is in compliance with its operator and whether there are any “Unpaid Bills” or “Unpaid dues”. Usually AT&T will sell a phone with a 2-year subscription. So if the phone has only a few months of contract left, there is a good chance that it is “barred.”

Compare the total cost of unlocking an iPhone on Orange France vs AT&T USA

To do this, take the case of an iPhone under 3 months: iPhone 64GB + cellphone unlocking = total cost.

USA AT&T: 600 € + 35 € = € 635.00
Orange FR: € 819 + € 75 = € 894.00

A total difference of €259!

Pay close attention to the American cellphone provider

Be careful when you make your choice because a locked USA iPhone from other cellphone operators, e.g. T-Mobile, Sprint or Verizon can cost a lot more to unlock. T-Mobile USA, for example, costs four times more to unlock than AT&T, about €115.00!

Regarding Sprint and Verizon, there are two important points to note. First, make sure the iPhone has a compatible GSM network. Sprint and Verizon use a different technology which is prevalent in the United States. In general the recent iPhones are multi-network and are therefore compatible, but it is best to check before buying the IMEI number whether the iDevice is GSM or not.

Secondly, for Sprint USA if there are ANY arrears it will be impossible to unlock the phone. We receive many requests to unlock Sprint USA cellphones but in 70% of cases there are unpaid dues and the operator refuses to unlock the device. However when the client file attached to the phone is “clean”, Sprint and Verizon release the phone quite fast and at an affordable price of just €20.00

THE METHOD BELOW IS NO LONGER WORKING WITH LATEST VERSION OF S6 EDGE
PLEASE DISCARD THIS BLOG POST

The Samsung Galaxy S6 Edge (SM-G925T) from T-Mobile USA is 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. And absolutely no code that you’ll be able to buy online will work using this app.

Original “Locked Screen” of a Samsung Galaxy S6 Edge from T-Mobile USA

So what do you do if you get an Unlock Code but you cannot use it?
