Phone Unlockers Preston

What does a “Locked Phone” Mean?

When a Phone is locked it means that it will only work with the provider you bought the device from. This can be an issue if your contract has recently expired but you want to keep your device on another network, or if you want to sell it second hand afterwards.

How Can I Get My Phone Unlocked?

The best way to get your phone unlocked is to bring it to our shop in Preston and we can unlock your phone from any network for a small fee (if for some reason we cannot unlock your phone, you will not be charged)

How Long Does it Take to Unlock a Phone?

Depending on the network your phone is locked to, unlocking a phone can take between 15 minutes to several weeks. This is because some networks take significantly longer to send a code used in the unlocking process.

Most Samsung and Android devices can be unlocked within an hour, in our store. This allows us to offer highly competitive rates for our Android phone unlocking services.

iPhone Unlocks are more complicated and can take around 3 days for Apple to approve. Due to the nature of how iPhones are unlocked, you can actually take your phone with you after we have requested the unlock and your phone will unlock automatically in a few days.
