It’s been a pretty busy month in the mobile marketplace in July. We have had rumours of the long awaited iPhone 7 Plus launch, which entirely contrasted the story that broke showing how millions of Apple devices could be suffering from a security vulnerability.
With the progress of technology, portable gadgets such as phones, laptops and tablets have become an integral part of our everyday lives. These devices are extremely valuable and can cause a major dent in the dent if stolen, misplaced or damaged.
New cellphones can be expensive. Especially if you are looking for something top of the range. This is particularly true if you want to get yourself an unlocked cellphone, that is not tied to a specific service provider. For this reason, buying a used cellphone can lead to significant cost saving. But there is a potential risk in buying a used phone. It could be blacklisted. If you are unlucky enough to buy a blacklisted cellphone it will be useless.
Mobile phones are often locked to the network that originally sold them. Networks do this in order to subsidise the costs of the mobile, allowing people to pay minimal or no upfront fees. However, as a result they activate the Network or SIM lock, restricting it to only working with SIM cards that connect to that network's signal.
Phone unlocking or network unlocking is the process of removing this lock, which then allows the cellphone to accept any compatible SIM card from anywhere around the world. Unlocking often requires the use of an unlock code, which is unique to each handset and found by using the handset's IMEI number.
