    doctorSIM 123 Phone Unlocking

    Do you have a smartphone that is network or carrier locked? The unlocking service from doctorSIM may be able to help you out.

    Phones obtained through network providers are often locked, whether you obtained them on contract or PAYG. This means that you won’t be able to use another network’s SIM card in them, even if your contract period is up!

    Some networks will unlock phones after a certain amount of time. However if you want this done right away, or your carrier isn’t as forthcoming, unlocking can be a pain. Do you trust that guy down the market with a grubby laptop and USB hub?!

    doctorSIM Phone Unlocking

    There are a number of services online that offer phone unlocking. Even though products bought at Clove are sold SIM-Free, we have still looked at many of these over the years. Be that for some of our clients or just personal interest.

    Following research, we have found doctorSIM to be one of the best available. They have a clean and simple website, along with options for several major manufacturers and end-user countries. They were also able to unlock phones other outlets could not.

    You can use the form below to get started:

    How does doctorSIM work?

    Use the doctorSIM website to locate your smartphone manufacturer. Once you have done this, choose the country and network provider the phone is locked to.

    The second step is to enter the IMEI number of the phone along with your contact details. This 15-digit number is unique to every phone, regardless of manufacturer and model.

    Usually you can find the IMEI somewhere physically on the phone, be that engraved on the back, under the battery compartment or in the SIM tray. If you can’t see it anywhere (even the box), then dial *#06# and it should be displayed on screen.

    After this, the doctorSIM website will determine your phone model and display a price. You pay right away by card, PayPal or even Bitcoin.

    Generating the unlock codes takes longer for some phones than others. You will be provided with a time frame for the procedure.

    Once finished, doctorSIM will email you directly with detailed instructions for unlocking the phone. This will include any codes that may need to be entered.

    In the event that your phone cannot be unlocked, a full refund will be provided.
