Unlock FAQ


In most countries, most mobile phones are shipped with country and/or network provider locks. In lay man terms it means that If you bought a HTC One phone from Vodafone, then your phone is locked to Vodafone and it cannot be used with other carriers. We at UnlockForest.com help you to unlock your phone by providing an unlock code(Factory Code) which releases the network carrier restrictions allowing you to use your handset in any network/country, worldwide.

It is legal to unlock your phone in most countries but it depends on the country and network you purchased your phone from.

Put in a SIM card of a different network apart from the one it was purchased from and see if your phone asks for a unlock code or shows SIM not valid, Phone Restricted, SIM not accepted, Invalid Network SIM then it means your phone is locked.

The IMEI (International Mobile Equipment Identifier) number is a 15 digit number that uniquely identifies your mobile phone. The easiest way to find it is to dial *#06# and read it from your phone screen.

No, you don’t need the SIM card from the network your iPhone is locked to. Apparently any SIM card will do once the unlock is processed.
