How to unlock your phone

How to unlock your phone

If you are under contract or on a prepaid cell phone service in the United States or Canada, and don't have a high end smartphone through Verizon, such as the iPhone 5 or 6, your phone has been locked by the service carrier. Network operators lock phones so they cannot be used with another carrier's SIM Card. You must have your phone unlocked by either by the carrier or by a company specializing in unlocking your phone in order to use a different carrier's SIM card, such as those sold through Cellular Abroad.

Here is a brief list of cellular companies in the United States and Canada and their unlocking policies.

Verizon - All 4G phones and iPhone 5's and 6's come unlocked. For all other models contact Verizon directly.

AT&T - All phones are locked. Contact them to see if you are eligible for unlock.

T-Mobile - All phones are locked. Contact them to see if you are eligible for unlock.

Sprint - All phones are locked. Contact them to see if you are eligible for unlock.

Bell - All phones are locked. Contact them to see if you are eligible for unlock.

Rogers - All phones are locked. Contact them to see if you are eligible for unlock.

If you are unable to get your phone unlocked from your provider there are paid unlocking services available. We recommend doctorSIM. Unlocking codes are available within 24 hours and prices start from around $5. Visit their website to find out if they can provide your phone with an unlock code. Doctor SIM will also unlock most cell phones purchased outside of the United States and Canada.
