The Complete Guide to Unlock Codes

KeyIt is common practice amongst mobile network providers is to offer a subsidized mobile phone with a service contract. In order to prevent customers from using these subsidized phones on rival mobile networks, the phones are locked, which means that they will only work with a specified network provider. An unlock code is then required to enable the phone to be used elsewhere. Unlock codes can be obtained from the mobile network provider, usually for a fee, or they can sometimes be obtained from 3rd party online services.

This guide will show you how to unlock a wide variety of phones and other devices including BlackBerry's, the Palm Pre, the T-Mobile G1 and more.
