How to Unlock Samsung GT-I9208
Want to know how to unlock your Samsung GT-I9208?
Now the type of phone unlock I’m talking about is for when you want to use another network or use your phone in another country but you get that pesky “Invalid sim” message or something similar. This is not going to help you if you’ve forgotten your phone’s PIN or password you silly goose!
In order to unlock your device, it can get very technical, the most reliable and easiest way, is to use an authorised unlocking service to do it for you.
An authorised phone unlocking service will usually just need the IMEI number of your device, which you can get by dialling *#06# on your device. What they do then is submit your IMEI directly to your network / manufacturers servers to be unlocked which can take 5 minutes to a few days depending on your network and how busy the servers are. Once it’s unlocked you get an email with the phone unlock code and how to use it, simple.
Now we don’t do unlocks directly ourselves, but when customers come in to our store we point them in the direction of the service we use all the time – Official Cell Phone Unlock
