Ways to Unlock Your Samsung Galaxy S6 or S6 Edge
- Your carrier: You can ask your current carrier to unlock your device at any time. Some of them will do it for free, some of them will charge you for it and some of them will tell you that you have to wait for your contract to expire. It’s a good option, but you can do better.
- A local phone repair shop: You can unlock your device at a local shop, for a fee of course. They usually use a piece of hardware for it though, and you will have to leave your phone with them for a while.
An online unlocking platform: You can use platforms like UnlockUnit.com or UnlockScope.com to buy an unlocking code for your phone, which you will use in the safety of your own home within minutes. Each phone is given a code when it is locked in the factory and these online platforms simply give you access to it.
Is Unlocking My Phone Legal?
Of course. The only country in which this was ever an issue was the United States. But even there, the President signed a bill on August 1st 2013 making it legal for people to unlock their phones.
