Unlock codes for a Samsung Galaxy Y: the inside story
The Samsung Galaxy Y is the cheapest phone available as part of the popular Galaxy range from Samsung. The budget phone was designed with today’s younger generation in mind with a Social Hub that allows you to access many popular social media platforms all in one place, fast and easy.
The Galaxy Y may be able to access any social media platform, but unfortunately the same can’t be said for mobile networks. The phone has built in restrictions but in place at the request of the network it is locked to in order to prevent people changing suppliers. But the reality is you don’t have to let the restrictions stop you, as it is now easier than ever to remove the lock placed on the handset! All you need is a new SIM card, one not provided by the network the phone is locked to, an unlock code unique to the handset, and some simple instructions to guide you through.
If you have been a long term customer of your current network, then simply call them and they should be able to provide you with the unique unlock code you need at no cost, and in some cases they may even invite you in store so they can do the unlocking for you.
If your service provider is not in the mood to help you, then there are various other sources where you can obtain an unlock code, although you may have to pay a small fee. The best way to locate a value for money, and most importantly a trustworthy independent source for your unlock code is to search on mobile unlocking forums for ones that people have recommended and have already tried and tested.
Once you have everything you need, its time to unlock your handset! Simply insert the new SIM card, and switch the phone on. When the phone comes on you should see a message similar to ‘password’ which is asking you to input the unlock code you received. If the message doesn’t appear automatically, enter the following code followed by the unlock code you obtained earlier then #: #7465625*638*. Once the unlock code has been correctly entered your phone should be unlocked! If there are any issues please contact your network service provider or the source for your unlock code.
