The Samsung Galaxy S II is the phone the Korean firm deems the successor to its best smartphone so far. And with a 1.2GHz processor, super-slim chassis and feather-light innards, it's easy to see why. The dual-core race is set to heat up massively over the next few months, with the LG Optimus 2X already released, and the Motorola Atrix, HTC Sensation and iPhone 5 all set to bring the tech to market too.
Unlocking the Samsung Galaxy S2 requires an unlock code. An Samsung Galaxy S 2 unlocked should work on any GSM phone networks or carrier. Most GSM or SIM based cell phones come with a SIM lock which prevents them form working with unaccepted carriers. The unlock code should remove the SIM lock on your Samsung Galaxy S II.
In order to get a Samsung Galaxy S2 unlock code, I would first contact your phone carrier’s support line and request one. Sometimes they will give you one for free and in exchange will need your Samsung Galaxy S 2’s IMEI number. You can get this number simply by entering *#06# on your phone’s keypad and then pressing enter. If you cannot attain a free Samsung unlocking code, then you can go for a trusted online vendor like UnlockGenie.com
You should now be able to use your unlock code and the steps below to fully unlock your Samsung Galaxy S II to other carriers. Enjoy!
