If you have purchased a Samsung Galaxy S6 attached to a particular network with a pre-installed SIM and now you are looking to unlock it, this post is for you. As consumers, you often end up buying phones which are available at a reasonable price when you subscribe to some other network offers. It seems like a profitable deal for the consumer and also serves as a great business deal for the manufacturers. Samsung is one of the leading companies when it comes to selling smartphones. However, some of the smartphones are locked to a particular network which customers wish to unlock from after using it for a few years or before shifting it to another country.
In such a case, you will require a unlock code with the help of which you can unlock your device. Before looking for unlock codes, make sure your monthly instalments are cleared if you have purchased the product on a contract basis. If some other company has financed your purchase, then also clear the dues and leave a good account standing. Also, note that your Samsung Galaxy S6 must not be associated with any fraudulent activities or must not be lost or stolen. In such a situation, unlocking the phone will be an illegal activity.
Unlocking a phone from a network is easy and can be done with some easy steps. In some cases, you can avail the service for free by logging into company websites who provide such services. You can connect your phone to the computer via a USB cable and don’t forget to reboot your phone before you connect. Once you do that, the website will automatically detect your phone and find out the best unlocking option for you. You can use the ‘unlock now’ option and the phone will restart on its own while staying connected to the computer. As your phone restarts, your handset is unlocked and free from the network services.
Not many people, however, avail of this service. Most of the customers prefer to go the old school way. In this method, you need to log into the webpage of the company who provides such online services. Create an account there by submitting your official email ID and by filling out a form which will have the details of your nationality, the model you are using and the network from which you wish to disconnect. As you fill in the form, dial *#06# from your handset and note down the IMEI number of your phone. Fill in that number in the form as that will help you to avail the service of the Samsung Galaxy S6 unlock code generator. Submit the form by making e-payments through credit card, debit card or other payment options.
Now wait for few days and you will receive the unlock code on your registered email ID. Pull out the old SIM card and insert the new one. On restarting the phone, fill in the unlock code that you received. In doing so, your device gets unlocked and you are free to switch to any other network you want.
