How To Unlock Alcatel:

To unlock an Alcatel device:

  2. The message "Enter SIM ME lock NP" or "Sim Network Unlock Code" will appear. Enter the network unlock code and press OK.

Important notes:

  • The network lock code may be 16, 10 or eight digits long. If the first digits are all zeros, ignore them and enter the remaining digits.
  • After five unsuccessful attempts to unlock the device, it will be permanently locked to the original network.
  • Some Alcatels use only 8 digits, try the last 8 if 10 digits do not work.
    Ex: code comes back as: 1234567890. Unlock code is either: 34567890 or 1234567890


How to Unlock an iPhone?

 

Important:

  1. First before buying a used iPhone is to make sure the phone is not reported stolen or blacklisted. If that is the case, then even if you unlock it, it still won’t work in the Country (or Continent) that it was blacklisted in. Use a free IMEI checker service online to make sure it says CLEAN and not BLACKLISTED.
  2. Secondly make sure the phone is not already unlocked. Insert a SIM card from a different carrier if it is locked it would say “unsupported sim”.
  3. Make sure you have the iCloud email and password, otherwise you still won’t be able to activate the phone even though the network is unlocked. If you’re not sure you can check the IMEI online.
  4. Now if the phone is not blacklisted, not iCloud locked and not already unlocked, you can proceed to submit a request with a trusted 3rd party Unlocking Company

How to enter my Unlock Code on the Apple iPhone ?

Actually it is impossible to Enter an "Unlock Code" on the Apple iPhone since they don't require or ask for unlock codes, the process is done via the Apple server. We request the unlock through the carrier to APPLE. Once Apple accepts our request, the unlock command is pushed to iTunes. It is completed once you received from us the confirmation of "Unlocked". Then you have to sync to iTunes to get the unlock on your phone

 

Once you have received the email confirming your unlock has been approved, it will usually say UNLOCK CODE:  Unlocked.  In this case, you are ready to follow these instructions to complete the unlock process for your iPhone.

Important notes

Troubleshooting


Make sure the iPhone is updated to the latest version iOS for your model

Make sure iTUNES is updated to the current version.

Make sure the phone is not jailbroken. You will have the remove the jailbreak (lower baseband). You can google/youtube how to do this.

Also try doing this process again on another computer. Sometimes this helps the issue too. Also turn AIRPLANE mode on/off, remove/insert SIM, plug/unplug from computer, connect/disconnect iTunes, try a different computer, try a different original Apple certified cable.

If the phone is reported STOLEN/LOST it will not work on USA GSM or Canadian networks. It will ONLY work overseas.

Also if the phone is NOT ACTIVATED, it will not work. You will need to activate it by using an ACTIVE sim card from the original carrier and connecting to iTunes.



If your phone is not unlocking or getting signal, PLEASE perform the backup/restore once again (above). Sometimes it takes up to 3 times to get it provisioned and unlocked. Also another solution is also trying to do another restore on another computer. Many times this has done the trick too.
Other method:

In certain circumstances the above instructions does not work to activate your unlock, follow the next instructions to activate your unlock ticket using the restore method:


1) Make sure your iPhone’s Sim Card tray is empty. (If you have an INVALID SIM Card inserted in your iPhone, you won’t be able to access iTunes to restore.)
2) Plug your iPhone into your computer and wait until your iPhone is fully recognized in your iTunes. (*Note: Please make sure your iTunes is updated to the latest version).
3) Click the “Restore” button and proceed with the backup and terms and agreement acceptance.
4) Once the restore process has started, insert your INVALID SIM Card (T-Mobile, Simple Mobile, Etc.) into your iPhone.
5) Wait for the restore process to complete and iPhone to reboot.
6) Once your iPhone has rebooted, iTunes will activate your iPhone with your unlock ticket using your INVALID SIM Card.
7) You should see a message displayed in iTunes, “Congratulations, your iPhone has been unlocked!”
8-) From here you are done, you should start receiving signal from your carrier (T-Mobile, Simple Mobile, Etc.)
9) Your iPhone is now factory unlocked permanently and you can update freely in the future for newer iOS updates.


Frequently ASKED QUESTIONS?



1. Can i update to the latest iOS? YES you can. It does not affect anything. Please make sure your phone is the most updated version when restoring

2. Will my phone relock ever? No, this is a permanent process.

3. Can you unlock the iPhone 8 & iPhone X yet? YES WE CAN.

4. Do you unlock any other providers? Yes we can.

5. Does iTunes Version matter? Make sure your ITUNES is updated to the MOST current version.

6. How can I tell my iPhone is unlocked for sure? Best way is by putting in a GSM (NON supported sim) and seeing if you can dial out. Usually after restore process it will alert you that the phone is unlocked as well. ITUNES will not always show a message showing the phone is unlocked, so testing it with a foreign sim is best bet.

7. How do i set up MMS and data? https://canadaunlocking.com/apn

I received the message "activated" or "unlocked" but when I plug it into iTunes, nothing happens.

- Try connecting to iTunes, perform a back up then restore.

Phone is Jailbroken and will not allow me to do a restore

- You must put your iPhone into whats call "DFU mode".
- Open iTunes and connect the iPhone to your PC/Mac.
- Press and hold the Home button and the Sleep/Wake button at the same time.
- After exactly 10 seconds release the Sleep/Wake button. Continue holding the home button until you iTunes pops up a message telling you that it has detected an iPhone in recovery mode. Now you can do a restore on your iPhone.



* Note: It may take a few attempts to get your iPhone into DFU mode. Generally, I hold down both buttons then release the Home button just before the Apple logo would appear. If you are still holding both buttons down and you see the Apple logo you are holding them down for too long!

How to Unlock a Motorola Phone

  1. Insert a SIM card from a different carrier into the device and turn it on.
  2. The message "SIM Network unlock PIN" will appear. Enter the network lock code and press Unlock.
    Note: the network unlock code is the first set of 8 digits (numbers only).
  3. The message "Network unlock successful" will appear once the device has been unlocked.

Explanation of codes: (There might be few sets of 8 digits codes)

In this example below the 2nd set of code is the unlock code.

If unlock code comes back as: m786se4hc9 12345678 07477510 e0f79899
So, in this case, Unlock code will be 12345678

It unlock If the code comes back as: 12345678  07477510
So, in this case, Unlock code will be the first set of numbers only (do not try the second set of numbers) 12345678

 

Troubleshooting steps: For some Models like the Moto G and Moto X, in rare cases the phone does not except the unlock code on the first try.

In this situation: Do a factory reset. Then Insert an unauthorized SIM and leave the phone on the unlock code prompt screen for 10 minutes. Now enter the unlock code again. If it still says unlock code not accepted, keep entering the unlock code over and over again. It may take up to 30 attempts before it says unlock code accepted. This is a known issue for these models and you can enter the code an unlimited amount of time wihtout freezing or hardlocking your phone, so keep trying


WARNING: If one of these messages appears:
-"Contact Service Provider"
- "Tamper Alter"
- "Wait before enter special Code"
- "Contact Service”
Its because you or somebody already enter too many wrong codes, you just have to let the phone ON at these errors message (do not close the phone if V3) and after 40 minutes to 12 hours, the message " Enter Subsidy Code" will appear again.

---------- Trouble Shooting ----------





"Code Error" or "Sim Network Unlock Unsuccessful" What do I do?

* Please check your IMEI number by pressing *#06#, this is the most common reason the code doesnt work. If the first 15 digits which appear is different from the 15 digit IMEI number provided above, please reply directly to this E-mail.





I can make Calls and Text but Im not getting Internet Service.

In this case you will need to adjust whats called the APN settings. The APN settings vary depending on the service provider you are trying to use. Please contact your service provider and they can assist you setting this up. There is no separate unlock for data or internet. If you can call or text, your phones network is fully unlocked.



My Phone is asking for the "PUK" or "Security Pin" or "Password"

If your phone is asking for one of the above, it is the Simcard personal password or phone security password NOT the Network Lock which we provide for you. You can contact your service provider for this. Once you bypass this, you can use the Network Unlock Code provided by us.





*if you are receiving the message "Incorrect Pin Code 5 tries left"



This is NOT the unlock code, this is your phones personal password or simcards password. You must by pass this first and then enter the network unlock code we have provided you with.





My Phone seems to be unlocked but Im not getting any signal

First of all, we do request you contact the service provider to make sure after unlocking your device, your unlocked phone will be compatible on their network. Not all GSM phones are compatible with any Network after unlocking it. The unlocked phone must be able to support the Networks Frequency. If you are unsure of this, please contact them regading this.


After unlocking your phone, please pull the battery for a couple minutes and then restart the device. It may take a few minutes for your phone to pick up the new signal. Also go to your Network settings on your phone, and make sure the device can detect the signal from the simcard you are trying use.

IF YOU RECEIVE THE "UNLOCK UNSUCCESSFUL" RESULT, DETERMINE THE LOCK STATUS OF YOUR PHONE: 

If you have ordered the Samsung Canada (All-level) service from our website, you will have been pleased to see that every possible unlock code has been emailed to you.  If you have order the cheaper  Samsung (Carrier Name) service then only the Network code (NCK) code is provided.

 

The unlock codes emailed to you from our Samsung Canada or Samsung USA (All Levels) Service will look something like this:

NETWORK=12345678 PROVIDER=12345678 SUBPROVIDER=12345678 DEFREEZE=12345678 EXTRA=00000000

Network is called NCK, Provider is called SCK, SUBPROVIDER is called SPCK and Defreeze is called MCK or Unfreeze code.

 

Most networks only lock their Samsung handsets with the NCK lock enabled.

Therefore you should only need to use this code when following the iinstructions.

However some networks will have dual locks in place (whereby the NCK and another lock is enabled) or they may have just an alternative lock level such as SCK or SPCK. It is best practice to be 100% sure which lock level is present on your handset, to do this follow these instructions:

Enter the following code into your handset while it is turned on and connected to its locked network.

By this we mean the connected to the network your handset is locked to (if you are locked to Bell, then  insert a Bell SIM card into your handset)

Once connected, enter this code: *#7465625#

 

(NOTE: THIS SHORT CODE MAY NOT WORK ON ALL MODELS)

A menu will be displayed that will resemble the following...

1. [?] Network lock

2. [?] Subset lock

3. [?] SP lock

(Where ?= Value ON or OFF)

If only the Network lock is displayed saying ON then you will only need to use the NCK code with the instructions below.

If you see the Subset lock value as ON then you will need the SCK code and if you see the SP lock value as ON you will need the SPCK code.
