The Carrier Lock also known as network lock is a restriction that is implemented to prevent the usage of a different Sim Card on your device. This lock, it is usually implemented as a way to ensure that users only use their network, and this is usually tied up with a contract. To use a different carrier, you will need to unlock your phone by obtaining an unlock code, this can be done in different ways.

How does the Carrier Lock Works?

As we briefly explained before, the network lock is a restriction that it is imposed by the carrier to prevent its usage in any other carrier. All of this is possible thanks to the uniqueness of your IMEI number and how phones communicate with the providers. The IMEI number is an ID that is given to each phone and that cannot be changed, on the other hand, when a phone interacts with a network, it sends a request which contains all the information. 

With this in mind, whenever you send or receive anything on your phone using mobile services, your phone will be communicating with the nearest tower to send or receive all incoming or outgoing requests. If your mobile device is locked, it is due to a restriction set by the manufacturer along with the network provider in which the phone will be tune to only receive the signal from that specific carrier.

Does it affect Android and iOS devices?

Yes, this lock works regardless of the OS system that your device is running, mobile providers are indifferent to this as all mobile phones work in the same manner when it comes to connecting to a mobile network. 

Is it the same around the world?

No, there are some flaws that exist regarding the lock, as not all countries use the same type of network. As we already explained, phones are usually set only to receive a certain signal, this is how the lock operates. However, this lock can only be done under certain network, which may vary in some countries. 

This means that for example, if you have a T-Mobile phone from the USA that currently is locked, it might work in China for example where the networks are completely different. This is slowly changing as networks are standardizing and to prevent the usage of stolen devices overseas.

Methods to Carrier Unlock your Phone

There are two main ways on how you can process your Sim Unlock, the first one being an unlock request directly to your network or using an unlock App to process your network unlock request. Make sure to read this guide to make sure you use the right unlocking service depending on your case.
