It's likely that Cellunlocker will say, "Yes, there is!" and take your money, but fail to deliver the unlock and refuse to refund your payment. That was my experience when I tried to unlock my iPhone 6 Plus with them. I'd advise trying a different provider.

If It's over 3 months si?ce you bought it it's not free. They now unlock all their phones after 2 bill payment or 45 days but no free unlock...

No, there is a fee for unlocking your phone. all phones are priced differtly. I find the free ones do not work. But if you take your phone into a new phone company, like fido or tellus, they will do it for free as will.

I have a T-Mobile LG GS170 that I would like to unlock that I received from a friend to be used overseas. T-Mobile won't provide unlocking because there is balance due. Can I still unlock the phone without them? Thanks.

I'm pretty sure T mobile don't own the unlock code. They're just being a pain by withholding the unlock code. I would email cell unlocked in advance just to be sure.

Yes cell unllocker will search their data base for the unlock code of your phone once you provide them with the phone''s IMEI number. If they cannot find it they will give you full money refund. One think to look at is the frequency of the phone, make sure that it has the right one for the provider in the country that you want to use it in once unlocked.

One T-Mobile rep told me that once to payments are made on a financed phone, and once that phone has been active on the account for 40 days, it's eligible to be unlocked. I would try to call them back and bug them about it again. If not, Swiftunlocks.com is actually cheaper than Cellunlocker.net

I'm sure cellunlocker could unlock your phone, but I have read somewhere that if the phone has an outstanding bill or other charges owing on it then cellunlocker will not be able to unlock it, your best bet is to email cellunlocker and ask them the question, if you tell them all the info you know then they will be best to answer your question, they were very helpful when I emailed them a question.

My experience is either I hit the wrong lottery on some hit, or the verification routine is FUBARED. Are you USA? If not, some talking, beyond a Hey, whats up will help... at least in my experience of "Exception Handling". Not 100% and start volunteering data....

You need to email them and ask your questions correctly. From your English I can tell your outside USA and depending on the phone will result in different answers. There are 2 types of cellular systems in the US. GSM and CDMA. The phone you have is either one or the other. I have seen people get a freak deal on a IPhone on EBay only to find out it's useless and UNLOCKABLE because it's CDMA. BUT YOUR QUESTION IS NOT CLEAR!!!! I have had over 20 different phones unlocked from HTC to IPhone 4s 5 5s and so on and always got what I paid for as long as I provided GOOD information for them to work with. Don't forget it's the Holidays. People go on Break. Wait till after the new year and try again. I'm suet they will try to be helpful as they always have been to me.

I have read the 2 answers you have received and both are correct, but they make the process sound difficult and complicated, its not, go to the cellunlocker.net site and follow the very easy instructions, enter the info and follow their instructions precisely, costs etc are displayed before you commit to proceed, once you have the code, again just follow the instructions exactly as they are given to you, I managed it and I'm 64 and not that savvy so I'm sure you will be fine

Simple. Place your order with the unlocking company of your choice. I did it with cellunlocker because 3 times they have provided me with excellent service. A bit pricey but trustworthy and excellent response time and support. I'm not affiliated with them in any manner, feel free to shop around. After they receive your payment, usually whitin a few minutes( during business hours) you will receive an email saying that they are processing your order. Next they will send you an email with an unlocking code and full instructions on how to unlock your phone. Its really easy, no muss no fuss.

I've used Cell Unlocker to unlock my Samsung Galaxy S4 from the EE network and my iPhone 5s from the 3 network. You enter your IMEI number into their website and they let you know if it's possible to unlock the device BEFORE they take payment. If your IMEI matches their database - and it probably will - Cell Unlocker ask for payment then send you an unlock code complete with instructions.

Purchase an unlock code from cellumlocker.net. I have purchased unlock codes for three different phones and have referred my friends to them with success in all instances. Their prices are reasonable, and if you get confused, they have live technical support staff, who will walk you through the process, step-by-step.

You need to know what carrier your phone is locked to which in your case you said is Cricket. You also you your IMEI number...you can get that by dialing *#06# on your phones dialer (don't post it publicly ever btw ~ only give to the unlocker). Then you obviously need to pay for your code.

"I followed the instructions on the web site and got an un lock code within an hour. Just fill in EXACTLY the data form. I was a little weird for me because my phone had a couple extra digits on the end. This stuff is not magic... you could go argue with Cricket, and win.... And it was not worth the hours of my time to go argue about unlocking"

If its Cricket thats a CDMA carrier... It wont be as simple to use that phone on another carrier if Cricket locked down the sim card slot. On CDMA carriers the sim card slot is ONLY used for LTE not service.

not familiar with cricket, but at the time I unlocked my phone the price was like $10 dollars and heard a lot of good things about this place. Support (calling a human) was slightly different, when I printed the how to guide there was like 20 pages of possibility and it got confusing. After calling the phone number I think they should the supports as well as how to guide rewritten. In the end I was so scared and confusesd that I went with my notes to a local store for help cause the simplest way was to insert a different companies Sim card into the phone it forced my phone to have a Popup and ask - do you want to unlock it now, which was easy but when I was given like 10 possible codes to use and keep in mind that you only had so many tries before the phone will lock up permanently, I was glad I was at a 3rd party store, cause I did not have a different phone card to pop in, this guy was nice enough to let me use one of his, then he advised to use like the 4 choice id to unlock but I decided to follow the steps, after the 3rd try I kind of got scared and he said trust me and guess what he was right. I don't know why they have so many possible codes to use, there should be one code that is it. Long story short it was done. Now that I done it, if the 3rd party store was a reasonable rate, I would just use him to do it. So check online at Cell unlocker to see the price to unlock, Cell unlocker charged too much for iphones as told to me.

I bought an unlock code from Cell Unlocker. It didn't work and they wouldn't refund my money. The gal where I bought my new phone even video'd the problems. CUL didn't care. They already got my money. I got my phone unlocked from my previous provider, T-Mobile. I wouldn't use Cell UnLocker ever again. I know this isn't how to unlock your phone, but I wouldn't recommend this company!

I used the service as well. You need a code from the phone, and they will tell you how to look it up on the phone, and then they will get the unlock code for you. I had T-Mobile on my Samsung and got it unlocked easily.

I purchased 2 unlock codes for 2 Nokia lumia 710. Very simple, step by step instructions. They will need your carrier and imei #. After you pay it will be emailed to you. It might take a day or two, but you will get it. Very highly recommended!

You need to do as the Tuffgirl who answered below says. You also need not to be in a contract of any kind on the phone. They have a fair price for the unlock code and my phone has now been working for over a year.

I agree with "johnnyblack Answer". cellunlocker is your best bet (in my opinion). The service is relatively inexpensive and they are extremely helpful if things just aren't working for you. I believe you will be very happy with the service from cellunlocker as I am. Good Luck!

Yes, with the following caveats: 1) The phone must support the GSM radio frequency bands that are in use in that country. The Canadian version of the iPhone 4s is a 'world phone' in that it supports most of the frequency bands in use throughout the world. This phone should work, anywhere. 2) The SIM card in the phone must allow connection to networks in that country. Check your wireless provider plan, and while you're at it, check the roaming rates that they charge for calls and data, incurred while on a foreign network. You may need a new SIM card from your current provider or another domestic provider's SIM card. Alternatively, you can purchase a SIM card and airtime from providers in that country, which will work in your unlocked phone. 3) Phone settings should be set to connect to any network.
