In March 2013, the Obama administration and the Federal Communications Commission expressed the opinion that consumers should be able to switch carriers and keep their existing phones in response to a successful petition on the WhiteHouse.gov platform.
The Unlocking Consumer Choice and Wireless Competition Act was signed into law on August 1st, 2014 and as a result it is now completely legal to unlock your phone.
If your Samsung doesn't ask for an unlocking code when a non-native sim card is inserted, then we can unlock it using our Remote USB unlock. This will be picked up in our eligibility checks and you will be offered the chance to purchase a Remote USB unlock instead of our standard unlocking codes. Both services are Samsung approved and do not affect your warranty.
We provide all the unlocking codes your Samsung requires - not just the NUC (Network Unlock Code), sometimes referred to as NCK (Network Control Key). For example we also supply the MCK code (Master Unlocking Code), and if necessary, the RGK (Region unlock code).
If you enter your unlocking code incorrectly too many times, your Samsung will request an MCK (Master Code Key). This is generated by Samsung themselves and all our Samsung Unlocks come complete with this MCK code.
Why unlocking your Samsung 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 Samsung for more money - If you come to sell your Samsung, 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 Samsung for a relatively low price.
