How Online Phone Unlocking Services work

Published by on August 25, 2015 under Mobile

how phone unlocking works (3)Frankly, I never had much trust in websites offering phone unlocking services, but when I had to find a way to unlock an old phone in order to sell it, I gave them a try. What convinced me they couldn’t be scams was the money back guarantee badge I saw these websites have been displaying since a while ago. This means that if the code they provide doesn’t work, you get your money back and that’s great because, in my opinion, these services are not cheap at around $25, but you’re doing this once only.

Another positive thing besides the refund option is that you don’t have to leave your phone at the service. You can unlock it at home, in front of the computer, and it’s very easy. You only need to find your handset’s IMEI number (International Mobile Equipment Identity) underneath the battery or by dialing *#06#, select the phone model from a list of available models and pay for the unlocking code.

When I discovered the Turkish TV series “Magnificent Century” a year ago, I instantly fell in love with the story, characters and Turkish history and culture. Since I missed the first ten or so episodes, I watched them online, on the official website of the show, but I wasn’t able to understand much. The series was so great that I wanted to visit Turkey in the near future and find out everything about the art in the Ottoman Empire (jewelry, architecture, interior design, fashion, laws, etc). That was when I realized that I really have to learn Turkish. Read more
