New iPhones are imminent. The most reliable predictions suggest that Apple will officially announce the iPhone 7 during the first week of September, with a retail release following on Friday, September 16.
The Samsung Galaxy Note 7 has officially launched and pre-orders have opened up in the US, confirming the weeks of rumors about its curved design, 5.7-inch display, top-of-the-line specs and S Pen stylus.
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.
