Information on how to unlock your Tesco mobile device.

Unlock your Tesco UK Phone to use on another GSM Carrier.

100% Guaranteed & Lowest Price. We provide you with a Tesco Mobile Unlock Code Fast and Easy.

To Unbar your Tesco Phone You will need the following:

 

Your phone's IMEI number: It is your phone's  identity, like a serial number or a fingerprint even. Most phones have a 15-digit number written in fine print on the back of the device. You can also find it by dialing *#06# into your device's dialer app, or go to the settings and then the  About Phone section.

A SIM card from a different carrier other than the original provider: A SIM card is how your device connects with your wireless provider. It is also worth noting that Tesco is the same network carrier as 02 and, EE is the same as Orange. If you change out one SIM card for another that uses the same network then usually you will not get the automatic unlock code prompt. Normally you can switch to these other carriers without the need to unlock your device. 

 

What is Unlocking?

Cellular phones are expensive technology. To help make them more affordable to new customers carriers like Vodafone, EE, O2 and Tesco (/ Tesco UK)would commonly offset the cost by locking a phone to their network. Instead of paying £700 for a new phone, new customers could pay £0 down in exchange for agreeing to a 3-year contract which had the price of the phone built into the monthly payments. The phone was then 'locked' to the network so even if you ended the contract, the device would not work with competing services; forcing you to buy a new phone.

Unlocking a wireless device lets your phone work on any network that has compatible technology.


Why Should I Unlock My Cell Phone?


There is usually no rush to unlock your smartphone. If you are happy with your current wireless provider (Tesco Mobile) you can choose to leave your device locked. However If you do choose to move to another carrier later you'll still have the right to unlock your phone later on. However if you plan on going on a last minute vacation or trip out of the country where Tesco is Roaming then you are usually better off unlocking your phone so that you can purcahse a local sim card and save on roaming fees. Don't get stuck with your phone asking for an unlock code when you are overseas, you may find it difficult to call back home and wait on hold incurring long distance charges.  Your best bet is usually to get it over with and unlock your device now.

About Tesco device Sim Lock

A network lock, SIM lock, simlock, carrier lock or (master) subsidy lock are terms used to represent the technical restriction that is built into some Tesco phones during the manufacturing process. This restriction allows Tesco to restrict usage of these phones to specific countries and/or networks. Although some phones can be unlocked OTA (over-the-air) however most phones require a sim network unlock pin Tesco . The opposite of this is a phone called SIM-free, Network unlocked or Factory Unlocked. A Network Unlocked Tesco phone does not  impose any type of SIM restrictions, meaning that you can use your Tesco phone on any compatible network in the world.

Phones can be locked to accept only SIM cards with certain International Mobile Subscriber Identities (IMSIs); International Mobile Subscriber Identities can be restricted by either:

Mobile country code (MCC; e.g., will only work with SIM issued within one country)  or Mobile network code (MNC; e.g., AT&T Mobility, T-Mobile, Rogers, Cricket, Koodo, Fido, Wind, Telus, Claro, Movistar, Docomo, Vodafone, Bell Mobility, Tesco, O2, EE etc.)

What do i need to know BEFORE Network Unlocking a Tesco device?:

  1. Make sure to Check That the IMEI is not stolen or Blacklisted (it won't work on any network in North America if it is reported stolen, even if it is network unlocked)
  2. Make sure it is not  ROOTED  or Activation locked
  3. Make sure it asks for a SIM Network Unlock Pin automatically when you insert a SIM card from a different network.
  4. Make sure your phone is not Hard locked which means someone entered the incorrect code too many times. If it is a brand new phone or you have never tried to unlock it before then there is nothing to worry about.

* Only if the above is resolved, can you can safety proceed to order the phone lock removal service for Tesco.


If you bought the Tesco second-hand or got it from a friend then you may not  be sure If  your Tesco is locked or not,  the  simple way to find out is to pop in a SIMcard from a different Network. If it's locked, then the Tesco won't work on that network.  If it works then you can be sure that the Tesco is unlocked and not blacklisted.

However if it does not work with a SIMcard from a different carrier, this can also mean that it is blacklisted.  You are better off spending a dollar or two and purchasing a IMEI Check service , just to be sure.

If you discover that it definitely is locked, and not blacklisted then we can help you network unlock it.


Is it Legal to Unbar a Tesco device?

Unlocking your Tesco device is not only completely legal in most Countries but it is also your right as a consumer. If you are still financing the phone through your carrier then technically they still own the phone until you pay it off completely. In that case your carrier may not want you to unlock it for they fear you will run away to another carrier without actually paying the remaining balance owed on your Tesco phone!

Since laws differ from Country to Country and there are new changes often we cannot provide legal advice regarding Phone unlocking. In the USA, Cell Phone Unlocking became legal on August 1st, 2014 when Obama signed a bill into law allowing consumers to unlock their cell phones.

To find the latest information about your countries consumer protection laws relating to cell phone locking please visit these pages: CRTC in Canada , the ACCC in Australia, the European Electronic Communications Code (EECC) in Europe and the FCC is the USA.

Unlock Your Tesco so that you can use it with other SIM cards from carriers around the World!
