After bringing home your brand new smartphone and completing your two-year contract with the carrier, the love does start to fade. Whether you are unsatisfied with the monthly plans or just need the freedom of using a SIM card from another carrier on your device, there is a way to jump ship.

Thanks to the recent changes in the FCC regulations, carrier unlocking your smartphone is legally permissible and supported by all major carriers. However, the paperwork and weeks of processing time can be a downer, which is why you need a service like Updato to help you instantly unlock Samsung devices.

DID YOU KNOW: Updato offers seamless and guaranteed phone unlocking for any device, carrier and region! It's quick and easy - try it now.

Why Should You Unlock your Device?

  • Unlocking your smartphone from one specific carrier allows you to make the best out low-priced SIM-only plans that other carriers may provide.
  • By unlocking your device, you also uplift the tariff restrictions that your carrier has laid down upon you for the entire time period of your contract.
  • If you want to sell your smartphone, an unlocked phone will always be able to sell fast and get you more cash than a carrier-locked one would.
  • For a traveler who is being buried by international roaming charges from the locked carrier, the ability to swap out SIM cards abroad can save a fair amount of money.

What is the Risk Involved in Unlocking?

Technically, there is no risk involved with unlocking your smartphone, since it is even approved by most of the major network carriers. However, the safety involved in unlocking a device depends on the route you follow.

You can directly contact your carrier and ask them to help you with the unlocking process. After collecting the proper documents and filling down the forms, it could take weeks for the request to be approved if everything goes right.

The second popular method is to use a service such as Updato to instantly unlock Samsung devices. These services charge you somewhere around $15-$25 to generate the unlocking code within a few days, making this particular option the quickest solution.

Depending on how much you trust a particular service for unlocking your smartphone or whether you are willing to wait for weeks, the options mentioned above are two certified ways of unlocking.
