I first tried to unlock my O2 phone by asking O2, they said they couldn't because it came from Carphone Warehouse and that I should get in touch with them and they will unlock it. Carphone Warehouse said that they don't do this service and that O2 or the manufacturer (Sony) should do it. So I asked Sony to do it, they said this isn't something they can do, only the service provider it's locked to can do it. I thought about getting it done at a street stall, or via an app - but read mixed reviews about these options. Then I saw Techradar had given Mobile Unlocked their stamp of approval, which I tend to trust. So I went with Mobile Unlocked, website was simple to use, it cost about £20 and took about a day for them to send me the code. Code worked straight away and now I have an unlocked phone - I'm well happy!
Unlocked my Samsung Galaxy S5 (G900F) in less then 24h over the Bank Holiday Weekend!Website is easy to use and all instructions were sent in email along with unlock code. Fantastic service!
Code received in an hour and worked first attempt. Much better than the 'cheaper' unlock sites who could not come up with a code
Really quick service! :)
EE told me the process would take 10 daysband cost £20. These guys did it in 5 minutes for £10.
Founded on October 1, 2001 as a joint venture between Sony and the Swedish telecommunications equipment company Ericsson, under the name Sony Ericsson, Sony acquired Ericsson's share in the venture on February 16, 2012. Sony Ericsson's strategy was to release new models capable of digital photography as well as other multimedia capabilities such as downloading and viewing video clips and personal information management capabilities. To this end, it released several new models which had built-in digital camera and colour screen which were novelties at that time. Sony Ericsson struggled following the launch of Apple's iPhone in the third quarter of 2007. At their keynote at the 2012 Consumer Electronics Show, Sony's Kaz Hirai announced that Sony Ericsson would be known simply as Sony Mobile Communications pending completion of the transaction. On February 16, 2012, Sony announced it had completed the full acquisition of Sony Ericsson. On January 7, 2013, Sony Mobile completed moving its headquarters from Lund, Sweden to Tokyo, Japan in order to fully integrate with its parent company. Although no new Sony Ericsson handsets will ever come back on the market, they still remain very popular for unlocking. This is likely to be because when the handsets were originally purchased, they were bought directly from a network. When this happens, the handset is then automatically locked to that network for the lifespan of the phone. Until of course, they are unlocked using a service like ours. The phones themselves are still very easy to unlock. Over time this service has got a lot more sophisticated, with us now able to locate your unlock code using the phones IMEI and Serial Number (S/N). We can also offer unlocking for the Xperia series using a piece of software. This has helped thousands of people who haven't had the option of obtaining their unlock code, but have still wanted to get their phone unlocked. Both options are easy to use, and will be displayed on the page for the handset you have.
