How to unlock a phone? You might not believe us but the answer to this question is easier than what you think. You don't need to go down to the Internet cafe run by that mysterious guy that hardly speaks any English and that looks at you with disapproval because he's found out that you're not into Indian music or kebabs.
Simple and fast program to unlock mobile phones
After this introduction full of clichés you should know that there are tools that allow you to carry out this process all by yourself, unlocking phones without having to resort to anyone else. You only need a USB cable and Advance Unlocker, an application to unlock your smartphone and use it with the operator of your choice.
With this application, you'll hardly need any tutorials as it guides the user through the entire process, taking care of the most delicate steps and decisions to be made. It will only give you certain instructions of actions that we have to carry out ourselves.
Connect your phone, choose the model, and follow the instructions.
What phones are compatible with Universal Advance Unlocker?
One of the advantages of this program is that it allows us to work with different brands and operating systems, so you're going to be able to use on both Android, iOS, and Blackberry. Here's a list of compatible manufacturers:
As you can see, you'll be able to come across well-known brands but also some makes that you've probably never heard of. The process to carry out the unlocking operation is as simple as selecting the brand of your handset from the user interface and following the steps indicated. What happens if you've got a Sony Xperia or a OnePlus? Don't even try it if your phone doesn't appear on the list. It will be a waste of time.
However, don't expect to be able to unlock an iPhone 7 or a Samsung Galaxy S8 with this application. The truth is that you'll only be able to use it on old handsets such as an iPhone 2 or 3, so forget about your new mobile you've just bought from Verizon. The thing is that new phones, apart from coming along with higher security measures, may require the purchase of NCK codes... which is basically what the guy at the Internet cafe does to unlock your phone. One of the main reasons is that the program is rather outdated, as no new version has been released since 2013.
