Like every year, the launch of Samsung’s new flagship managed to create a lot of buzz. And we can totally relate, since the Galaxy S7 is one of the most impressive smartphones we’ve seen so far. But this thing will cost a lot…
Still, this shouldn’t be such a big problem, since most carriers will give you the possibility to get it for way less money if you’re willing to sign a two-year contract. Ok, sounds good, but what if you want to switch to another carrier? That’s pretty much impossible, right? Actually, it’s not. If you unlock your Samsung Galaxy S7, of course!
Even though there are multiple methods of doing it, the fastest, easiest and safest method is unlocking it by code. The whole process is very simple and it requires just a few minutes, not to mention that you don’t need to be a tech savvy person in order to do it.
Curious already? Let’s see how to get that Samsung Galaxy S7 unlocked, shall we?
- Find an online unlock code provider
Two of the most reliable providers out there are UnlockUnit.com and UnlockScope.com, both of them being recommended by the impressive number of positive reviews received until date. In order to get the unlock code, you need to provide the following details:
- the name of the network and country on which your phone is locked on
- your phone’s IMEI, which you can find by dialing *#06#
- a valid email address, where you will receive the code
- Receive the unlock code
Shortly after, you will receive an email containing the Samsung Galaxy S7 unlock code and additional instructions on how to insert it.
- Insert the code and unlock your phone
First of all, your Galaxy S7 must ask for an unlock code. In order to do this, you need a SIM from an unsupported network (If you’re using AT&T, just use a T-Mobile card, for example) which should be inserted in your phone.
The “SIM network unlock PIN” message will appear. Type the code you received via email and tap “Unlock”. In a few seconds, your Samsung Galaxy S7 will be unlocked and ready to be used with any carrier in the world.
If you’re experiencing any issues with the Internet connection, make sure you check the APN setting of your new carrier. In order to obtain them, go to the carrier’s website or call their customer support line.
What are the advantages of an unlocked phone?
Besides the ability of using it in any network you want, an unlocked Samsung Galaxy S7 can help you avoid roaming fees when traveling, by using a local SIM. Also, when you will decide that it’s time to sell it, your chances of finding a buyer will increase, not to mention that you can ask for a bigger price, since we’re talking about an unlocked phone.
