To Unlock your T-Mobile 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 phone's dialer app, or go to the settings and then the About Phone section.
A SIM card from a different carrier other than T-Mobile: A SIM card is how your device connects with your wireless provider. It is also worth noting that T-Mobile is the same network carrier as MetroPCS or Metro by T-Mobile. 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. However you cannot switch from a T-Mobile USA Sim card to MetroPCS without unlocking your phone first.
What is Unlocking?
Cellular phones are expensive technology. To help make them more affordable to new customers carriers like AT&T, T-Mobile and Verizon would commonly offset the cost by locking a phone to their network. Instead of paying $600 for a new phone, new customers could pay $0 down in exchange for agreeing to a 2 or 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 prematurely, the phone 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 (T-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 T-Mobile is Roaming then you are usually better off unlocking your phone so that you can purchase a local sim card and save on roaming fees. Don't get stuck with your phone being network locked 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 an unlock your T-Mobile phone now.

T-Mobile MOBILE Network Unlock APP
The T-Mobile mobility network unlock method is different from most carriers as they do not use the typical 8 digit unlock code. Instead unlocking Samsung devices , Motorola phones and Google Pixel phones and other Android based phones can only be unlocked using the T-Mobile unlock APP or through the designated Network Unlock Option in the T-Mobile specific Android settings. The T-Mobile unlock App is also used for Huawei phones, LG Phones and newer HTC phones. A T-Mobile unlock App service is used to remove the network lock from your device. If your phone was made before 2015 when T-Mobile was still using unlock codes then you need to order an unlock code instead of the unlock APP service [Message us and we will provide a code instead]. If this is the case then before ordering an unlock code, make sure your phone is in fact network locked and not blocked for being blacklisted, and also that it does not have the device unlock app then simply insert a SIM card from a different carrier and make sure the phone asks automatically for a network unlock code. For T-Mobile iPhones do not take unlock codes at at. They are unlocked over the air and the unlock is pushed through iCloud or iTunes server directly to your device remotely once the request has been accepted by Apple.
