Three Ways to Unblock Your Phone

Cell-phone unblocking has become a popular way to switch cellphone carriers without having to purchase a new cell phone. The process of unblocking is also called "unlocking." Cell-phone service-providers do block cell phones to keep them from being used by competitive cellphone providers. Therefore, if you have a cell phone that is blocked, it will need to unblocked before you can use it with another carrier.

Contact Your Cell-Phone Service-Provider

Contact your cellphone service-provider that sold you the cell phone and request that they unblock your phone. Have your model number and brand name of the phone when you contact them. Some cellphone providers unblock cell phones purchased from them as a courtesy, and many have instructions for unblocking specific models on their websites, so search the website of the manufacturer as well. If the provider cannot lend you any help in unblocking your cell phone, ask that they refer you to an authorised list of companies that may be able to help. Also, contact your new cellphone service-provider. They are the beneficiary of you, as a new customer, and they are providing your new service, so they may have a larger motivation to unblock your phone.

Locate Your PUK (PIN Unblock Key)

Each cellphone manufacturer has a PUK number or a PIN Unblock Key, which, if entered from the handset of the cell phone, will unblock the cell phone. This code is a number that is uniquely assigned to your cell phone and is the central component to any cellphone provider blocking your cell phone. Locate your PUK by doing an online search of the manufacturer or cellphone provider. In some instances, you can retrieve the PUK from the phone itself, despite whether or not it uses a SIM (Subscriber Identity Module) card or is a Smartphone. Once you locate the PIN, enter it and follow the prompts from your cellphone display.

Hire A Third-Party Company

Many companies offer unblocking cellphone services. These companies have their own software to download into your cell phone directly, and they also supply PUK codes for all cellphone brands. They will unblock your cell phone for a fee. If you choose the software application, then you will need a USB cable that is compatible with your cell phone, because you will plug the USB cable into your phone and the other end into the computer to receive the download. If you choose the PUK code to enter, the company that you hire can walk you through the actual unblock procedure, using their PUK code. Be sure to perform your due diligence before choosing a company because, if you improperly unblock a cell phone, you can lose all functionality and data permanently. Try to choose a company that has a kiosk or office location so that you can visit and get your phone unblocked while you wait.
