Before you go and IMEI factory unlock your phone, read this first!

The purpose of a IMEI factory unlock is to allow you free choice across any mobile phone network operator.  The process is very simple and can save you money with free choice of the many phone deals around.

All unlocking companies, require the following information:

  • Make of device (Apple, Samsung etc)
  • Model of device (iPhone 7, Note 7 etc)
  • Current network (O2, Vodafone etc)
  • IMEI number (Dial *#06# on the call screen)


There are many services available on the internet, please see the compiled list of the ones which i think offer the best genuine services for your money.  Please note there are sites that offer “Free Software” to unlock, don’t entertain these sies, they will just launch multiple questionnaires and surveys without ever offering the promised IMEI factory unlocking services.

For comparison i will be looking at prices for an iPhone 6 in the UK locked to the EE network.
