How to get your GSM phone unlocked

I see many questions about how to get a cell phone unlocked. A subsidy unlock code is needed to get your cell phone unlocked so that you can use the phone with another carrier's sim card.
Step one to get your code would be to call your carrier and see if they will give you the unlock code. If you have had service with them with your current phone for a while, they might let you have the code; if it's only been a few months, they more than likely won't.
Step two would be to do an online search for the subsidy unlock code for your phone model. There will be may sites that offer the codes for a fee. I think that it's best to look at several and go with the one that you feel the most comfortable using. I would also recommend using one that offers some sort of guarantee.
Hope this helps you- Good Luck.

how to use a sim subsidy code


With a new SIM card many users receive the message "enter subsidy password". This message indicates that the phone is locked to the current provider, and cannot be used with a new cell network. Obtain a Subsidy Password, also know as an IMEI unlock code. The Motorola subsidy password is an 8 or 16 digit code that unlocks your phone (Remove service provider lock) for use with other cellular providers. Search Google for Motorola Unlock Codes for a list of retailers. Codes are usually provided within 24 to 48 hours, and cost around $10 to $25 (Price will vary depending on Code seller).
Enter the subisdy code into the phone. To enter the IMEI code into the phone, all you need to do is insert a SIM card from a different network to the one that your phone is locked to. This will prompt the phone to display "Enter subsidy password". Just enter the 8 or 16 digit code, and your Motorola phone is unlocked.
