When you buy a smartphone directly from a carrier, they usually come locked. This means that it includes a software code that ensures that the device connects only to a specific network. In this case, the solution is to unlock the cell phone.
Fortunately, this is a legal procedure that you can do on your own. With a third party service like the one we offer at Movical you will be able to unlock your phone, so you can use it with any mobile network wherever you want.
Reasons to unlock your phone
Before we tell you why Movical is your best option for unlocking your cell phone, it’s good to keep in mind the reasons why it’s important to perform this network unlocking.
- Change service provider. You might find that another phone operator has monthly plans that are more adaptable to your budget and/or needs.
- Use two mobile networks simultaneously. Nowadays, most devices come with dual SIM slots. By unlocking your cell phone, you will be able to use two different operators.
- Use your smartphone outside the country. If you travel abroad, you can buy a SIM from any local operator and use it in your device to stay connected at all times.
- Sell it. If you want to sell your cell phone, you are more likely to do so if it is unlocked. This way, the buyer will not be limited to being a customer of the device’s current operator.
Why should you unlock your cell phone with Movical?
Now that you are clear about the benefits of unlocking your cell phone, we will tell you why it is worth choosing our service.
It’s a simple process
One of the great advantages of Movical is that the unlocking process is very simple. You don’t have to take your phone anywhere or leave it with a stranger. The procedure is done online and you do it yourself.
All you have to do is enter our website, select the ‘Unlock cell phone‘ option and choose the model of your device. Once this is done, you only have to enter the requested data. Among them are: the device’s operator of origin, its IMEI, your name and surname, telephone number and e-mail address.
To continue with the process, you must choose the payment method and make the payment. Afterwards, we’ll send a code to your phone that you will have to enter in your device after inserting an unaccepted SIM card. It’s that simple and in no time your smartphone will be unlocked.
It is effective
Sometimes users have doubts about the effectiveness of unlocking services. At Movical we offer an effective service, so in most cases we manage to unlock the devices.
However, you should keep in mind that sometimes, due to the type of device, brand or network, the unlocking goal may not be achieved. If so, your money will not be lost, because if we don’t succeed in unlocking the device, we always return the money.
However, you should consider several points. If your cell phone is unlocked, but does not get a signal, we will not be able to refund your money. In these cases, it may be that the device is on a blacklist or has firmware damage.
It is secure
The security of our service is not only in the money back in case the unlocking fails. It is also in the care we take with your personal data. We take the security and data protection of our customers very seriously. For this reason, we have SSL secure pages.
In addition, we guarantee a secure unlocking process for the device. In other words, your smartphone is not at risk with this procedure. Please note that the network lock is added by the mobile operators and not by the manufacturers. Therefore, unlocking it does not alter the phone’s system.
Offers other complementary services
Another reason to choose Movical is that it not only allows you to unlock your phone, but also offers other useful services. One of them is the IMEI check, an ideal option to check the status of your smartphone before unlocking it.
Imagine that you choose one of our plans to unlock your cell phone, but in the end you don’t get to use it because it is blacklisted. To avoid this kind of problem, you can check the IMEI to find out if an operator has blocked it or if it has been reported stolen or lost.
If your cell phone has a software problem, we can also help you. The best thing is that we do it remotely. You will only have to connect your device to the computer and follow the guidelines of our technicians.
