Unlock a Locked Cell Phone

There are two cell phone technologies that are used by the majority of the world's mobile phone service providers : GSM and CDMA

If your Phone is GSM (Global System for Mobile communication); then it may be unlocked.
If CDMA (Code Division Multiple Access ) then it cannot be unlocked.

Reason being, GSM phone has a removable SIM Card which contain all your account settings & act as an interface between your phone and the service provider. In case of CDMA, there isn't any SIM card and the phone itself contains authentic information which makes it impossible to unlock.

If you live in North America, you can usually determine whether your phone is GSM or CDMA based on the service provider you use. T-Mobile and AT&T use GSM, while Verizon and Sprint use CDMA. In Europe, almost all phones are GSM.

Reasons for Unlocking your current cell phone:-

  • Freedom to switch between service providers.
  • If you are traveling to Europe or Asia. 

Unlocking your Cell Phone:-

  • Enter a numeric code into the phone by your service Provider.
  • Purchase cell phone unlock codes from third parties for a fee that ranges from $5 to about $25 depending upon your phone model.

Also Please Note: Unlocking a cell phone is Legal in USA.

The U.S. Copyright Office issues rulings every three years, and in 2006, they declared that unlocking a cell phone does not infringe on the copyright of the phone manufacturer or service provider, and therefore isn't prohibited.
