Unlock your handset from these Curacao networks:

Why unlocking your phone is a great idea:

  • Avoid expensive roaming charges - Data plans are notoriously expensive when travelling and adding roaming plans, especially in this data-hungry, Instagram era!
    Rather than adding a temporary package to your account, having an unlocked phone means that you can buy a prepaid SIM card or localized SIM card from a local shop at a better rate, allowing you to use your phone abroad just like at home.
  • Selling your phone for more money - If you come to sell your phone, an unlocked version will be worth a lot more money.
  • Switching Service Providers - Network providers often compete with one another, trying to one-up each other with new features, cheaper costs, and of course making contracts easier to get out of. For networks that still offer contracts, their phones are discounted and subsidised through the plan, which means they come locked.
    Using DirectUnlocks you can avoid expensive termination costs and unlock your phone for a relatively low price.
  • With DirectUnlocks: Your phone warranty remains valid
  • The official method approved by Manufacturers and the network carriers themselves.
  • The quickest, cheapest and most secure way to unlock your phone - with a money-back guarantee.
  • Unlock your phone from the comfort of your own home.
  • You can use your phone during the unlocking process without restrictions.
  • Once the mobile phone is unlocked we'll tell you via SMS and email, containing instructions and an unlocking code if necessary, then you can simply pop another sim card in.
  • Permanent and 100% legal.

What is a network lock and why should I remove it?

Network locking is not something you can manually do or manage on your device. It is hidden software (the bootloader) that configures your phone to work on only one specific mobile network.

It is also called SIM lock because if your phone is locked to a network, only the SIM card connected to that network will be accepted. If you try to insert a SIM card from another provider, you won't get a signal, and instead will get a message like "unsupported sim card".

Unlocking your phone using your IMEI number takes all the stress out of unlocking the phone. But the simple process is not the only reason to make the change. There are many benefits to having an unlocked phone. By shifting the balance of power from the network to yourself, you become more sovereign able to make your own decisions. Spend a lot of time travelling? Then you can switch to an MVNO such as GiffGaff or Asda who still offer free EU roaming unlike EE, Vodafone and O2.

Indeed, traveling outside the EU is also smoother, easier and cheaper. By using local and international SIM cards, you can avoid high roaming charges. Then there are options. So whether it's price, insurance or coverage, you don't have to settle for second best. Waiting to sell? You will get more money for your phone if it is unlocked.

Future-proofing your device by unlocking will make it fetch more money when you come to resell it, and will help your wallet in the short term by reducing your mobile phone bill.

What should I do to unlock my phone from the network?

With DirectUnlocks, unlocking couldn't be easier. All we need is your device's IMEI (International Mobile Equipment Identity) number. Depending on your phone, there are several ways to find your IMEI number. You can enter *#06# on your phone keypad. You can access the "About" option from your phone's settings menu. Or you can check your SIM card or under the battery inside your device. Once we have your IMEI, you can share it with us. Using our 100% remote method, your device will be unlocked within minutes, not days or weeks.

No admin, app or account details required

With DirectUnlocks, the power is in our automated system. By using only your device's IMEI number, there's no pesky bureaucracy to slow things down.

Plain and simple, we don't need any details that your mobile provider will ask you for when checking your request. So this means: There are no forms to fill out. No account information to submit. There are no eligibility criteria to be respected. And there is no long hold on customer service calls to endure.

If you try to unlock the phone to remove all SIM blocks by contacting your phone carrier directly, this process can be long and problematic. And at the end of the lengthy process there's no guarantee they will unlock your phone. They will find any reason not to.

There is no standard unlocking process either, as every network system is different. And each provider has criteria for the device, its service contract and its payment plan (i.e. monthly payment phone). You will also need to provide credentials such as your device account number, social security number, password and other basic details.

With us, all you have to do is enter your IMEI on our website. We will do the rest and unlock your phone in a matter of minutes
