Why do I need to know which carrier my phone is locked to?

Most mobile phones are locked into a carrier. The reason for this is because when you take out a phone contract, you essentially get your phone at a discounted price due to the carrier provider offering you a monthly contract deal.

Although this is a great way to get a new phone without paying for your device upfront, this means that your phone can only be used with the carrier provider you took the deal with. Unfortunately, this leaves you with no room to get a better deal with another carrier when your contract runs up.

However, thanks to third party services including our phone unlock service, you can remotely unlock your phone so that you can change carrier providers and shop around for better SIM deals. Finding out what carrier your phone is locked to is an essential piece of information that all phone unlock services need to know to unlock your phone securely.

Furthermore, if you are selling or buying a used phone, it is vital that you know if a phone is locked to a carrier to avoid extra costs. Selling a used phone that is unlocked will up the value of your device, allowing you to make more money on your used phone.
