It is common for mobile carriers to offer subsidized phones to customers through fixed-term contracts. In those cases, the devices are usually delivered with a network lock, so that users cannot use the cell phone with any other company.
If you have bought a Huawei Mate 20 with these conditions, and want to unlock it and use it with any SIM card in the world, don’t worry. It is possible to remove the unlock. With just a few steps, you can get an unlocking code to use your phone with the carrier of your choice.
Steps to unlock your Huawei Mate 20
To unlock Huawei Mate 20, you must request an unlock code. To do this, you have to follow these simple steps:
1. Enter the details of the operator of the device:
Indicate the model of your phone and provide the details of the carrier, such as name and country. In this field, you must select the currency and the unlocking plan that suits you best.
2. Fill in the form:
To unlock your cell phone, you must indicate your device’s IMEI. It is a unique 15-digit code. Once you have provided this information, you must enter your name, contact number, and email.
3. Make the payment:
Once you complete the previous steps, you will only have to make the payment. You can do it with Visa, MasterCard, PayPal, or Bitcoin. Once you make the payment, press send. You will only have to wait for the code to arrive.
4. Enter the code:
When you get the code, enter it on your phone. It’s a simple and quite fast procedure. You must turn on your Huawei Mate 20 with a different SIM card than the original carrier. Once the device is active, it will request a code, and that is when you will have to enter the digits we have sent you. Press accept, and that’s it. Your cell phone will be released.
