Despite all the rumors pointing to a launch event scheduled for the end of the summer, the all new Samsung Galaxy Note 7 was officially unveiled on August 2 and, keeping it short, it’s totally amazing!
There’s no doubt that a lot of tech fans want to get their hands on it, even though it’s not an expensive phone. However, if you’re planning to get it with a two-year contract, all carriers will offer it for a better price. Of course, you will be stuck with a network for two years, but this shouldn’t be a problem, since nowadays you can easily unlock your Samsung Galaxy Note 7.
There are three main methods you can opt for: rooting, asking your carrier to do it and by code. Let’s break down each of them and see which one is actually the best!
Rooting – It implies proper technical knowledge and there’s always the risk to damage your phone, if it’s not done properly. Besides this, there’s no guarantee that it will unlock your phone.
Asking your carrier to do it – Most network operators will agree to unlock your phone only if your contract is over and the phone is fully paid. On the other side, some of them will ask for a lot of money.
Unlocking by code – It’s cheap, it’s safe and it takes just a few minutes. Also, you don’t need to be a tech savvy person in order to do it. It’s pretty obvious that unlocking your Samsung Galaxy Note 7 by code is the best option, right?
Here’s how you can do it:
1.Find a reliable code provider. Two of the best options are UnlockUnit.com and UnlockScope.com, give the positive reviews they have on Trustpilot.
2.Place your order. No matter which of the two sites you decide upon, they both require some specific information about your phone:
The name of the network and country on which your Galaxy Note 7 is locked on
The phone’s IMEI (it can be found by dialing *#06#)
A valid email address (where you will receive the code)
3.Insert the code. Shortly after, depending on how difficult to process your IMEI is, you will receive your Samsung Galaxy Note 7 unlock code, alongside additional instructions on how to use it.
Moreover, you can find on Youtube many unlocking tutorials that will guide you through all the unlocking steps.
Make sure you have a SIM card from an unsupported network, other than the one you’re currently using, and put it into your phone the power it up. A message like “Network unlock PIN” should be displayed.
Using your keyboard, insert the code you just received and press “Unlock”. In a few moments, your Samsung will be unlocked, allowing you to use it with any carrier you want. And that’s it!
Finally, we should mention that unlocking your Samsung Galaxy Note 7 by code also brings a couple of advantages! Besides being able to switch carriers any time you want, you can also avoid expensive roaming fees when traveling, by using a local SIM. Also, an unlocked phone is way easier to sell, at a better price. So, don’t think twice and do it!
