The Samsung Galaxy S7 is well on its way to being the best-selling Android smartphone of all time. It’s sleek, fast and sports a camera that’s better than anything Apple’s managed to cram into an iPhone. Unfortunately, all that hardware comes at a steep price. Buying a SIM unlocked Samsung Galaxy S7 will set you back $650 to $700. If you’re willing to sign a new contract with a service provider, the upfront cost of the Galaxy S7 can go down to $200. And then, there’s always to option to pick one up with a service provider’s installment plan. Those additional options will save you a lot of upfront cash, but the device you buy will be SIM locked to the service provider you purchased it from. That’s not a huge deal for most people, but it does come into play if you choose to switch service providers, travel internationally or if you want to get the most cash out of your phone when selling it.
The good news is that your Samsung Galaxy S7 can likely be SIM unlocked for free, as long as you meet your service provider’s requirements. This typically means that the device you purchased from them is paid in full or that you are at least 3-6 months into your contract and your account is in good standing. If that’s not the case, you will likely need to purchase a Samsung Galaxy S7 SIM unlock code from a third party service like Android SIM Unlock. But we always suggest giving the free option a try before paying any money for a SIM unlock code.
