Unlock Codes For Motorola Cell Phones: insider discoveries
Motorola are a popular and long standing cell phone and smartphone manufacturer with a wide range of offerings both past and present in the mobile phone technology world.
Motorola Inc mobile cell phone company was a pioneer in the cell phone industry. They created such greats as the flip phone and the clam phone in the mid 90s, both something previously unheard of and never before dreamed of. It climbed back into the mobile cell phone market during the mid-2000s with the innovative RAZR model, an ultra thin flip with one of the first ever front facing cameras and flip screens; but unfortunately it was not enough, and Motorola once again lost its grip on the market towards the end of the decade. In recent years Motorola have made another bid to get back into the market with smartphones, using the open source Android operating system from Google.
One thing that doesn’t change throughout the history and ranges of Motorola mobile phones is the SIM lock they place on their handsets at the request of many networks they distribute to. This restricts the handset to use with only a SIM card provided by the network it is shipped on. But this lock is easy and legally removable with the use of an unlock code and a new SIM card that is not on the network that the handset is locked to.
You can usually obtain the unlock code you need from your current network service provider, and if you have been with them a while then they will usually offer it to you for free. You can also ask in store about unlocking and they can do the unlock for you there and then at no extra cost.
If your network service provider proves to be less than helpful on this front, then you can always go through an independent reseller. These are websites that buy and sell unlock codes to help people who can’t obtain one through their network service provider, and are usually very cheap and helpful.
Once you have a new SIM card and unlock code, its time to unlock your handset:
1. Insert the new SIM into your handset and switch it on.
2. You should receive a message similar to ‘Enter Subsidy Code’.
3. Enter the unlock code.
Once the code is entered, your handset is unlocked!
