Switch Carriers Without Buying a New Phone

Big phone companies like Verizon, Sprint, and AT&T have a little trick that they use to keep customers tied down to their wireless plans — it’s called “locking” your phone. When you sign up for a mobile plan that comes with a new phone, you are getting a “locked” device that will only work on the network that you signed a contract with. In other words, if you want to switch to a more affordable plan on a different network, you will have to buy a brand new smartphone — unless you unlock your device.

Why Do Mobile Carriers Lock Your Phone?

A lot of cellular plans come with a “free” phone when you sign a long-term contract. But nothing is free in this world, which is why big phone companies “lock” devices that they sell with their mobile plans. By forcing you to stay in their network, they keep your monthly payments coming in for as long as possible, which helps them pay for all the “free” phones they give away with their cellular plans. 

How Do You Unlock a Mobile Device?

You can try calling your cellular provider and asking them to unlock your phone, but they will give you a hard time and use every excuse in the book to justify not helping you. It used to be illegal to unlock a phone without permission from the carrier, but the Digital Millennium Copyright Act changed that for good. You can search the internet for lengthy tutorial videos that show you how to unlock your phone step-by-step, or if you would prefer a professional job, you can bring your device to My Phillie Wireless.
