The official launch of the Samsung Galaxy S9 confirmed the leaked photos of the last few weeks: no major redesign for this year. Basically, the new Galaxy is almost identical with the Samsung Galaxy S8 launched last year. However, this doesn’t mean that the new Galaxy S9 lacks innovation. And the lack of progress in the design department is compensated within the hardware department. Where the new, ultra-fast chipset is set to raise the bar for new flagship phones’ performance.
The motto of the Galaxy 9th generation is “The camera Reimagined” for which Samsung that the camera “adapts like the human eye”. A strong statement, but if we consider that this camera is one of the few cameras capable of taking pictures in the dark, Samsung can back up their strong statement.
The Samsung Galaxy S9 is a great device. Samsung’s new flagship phone comes with some great features. Some of which are introduced for the first time and by the looks of it, they will be a fixed feature for next Galaxy S-series smartphones. Unfortunately, flagship-level feature mean also flagship-level prices. And Samsung Galaxy S9 is one of the most expensive phones available today. This is why, there is a high chance that you will be able to get the Samsung Galaxy S9 for cheaper, on a 2-year contract.
It sounds great! However, a phone on a contract come with strings attached, and one of those so-called strings is that contract phones are locked on the network on which they are sold. Thus, they will not work with SIM cards from other networks. This can become an issue if you are already using a network and do not want to change to another one. Luckily, you won’t have to switch networks just because you found a locked Samsung Galaxy S9 at a better price. You can actually unlock your phone and use it on the network you are currently using.
There are three steps through which you can unlock Samsung Galaxy S9 by code and use it within other networks. Long story short. First, you need to find an unlock code provider. Second, place an order and lastly perform the unlock process on your handset. It is worth mentioning that these three steps are simple to follow and do not require technical knowledge.
Moreover, because unlocking your Samsung Galaxy S9 this way will not alter either your phone’s software or hardware, you will not lose your warranty. So let’s see how to unlock your Samsung Galaxy S9 by unlock code.
The first step before actually unlocking your Samsung Galaxy S9 is to find a trustworthy unlock code provider. You can look online or locally for an unlock code provider. Once you find a provider, you should also check the reviews left by former customers to verify if they are a reputable vendor. One such provider is UnlockUnit.com which provides the network unlock code for locked Samsung Galaxy S9.
After choosing the online unlock code provider, you will be asked to provide the following information regarding your locked phone:
- The network name and country on which the phone is locked. You need to provide the network on which the device was actually used. Not the network where you plan to use your phone in the future.
- The Samsung Galaxy S9 IMEI number (this is a unique serial number for your phone). Dial *#06# on the phone to get the IMEI.
- A valid email address where to send the unlock code.
After providing all this information, it is time to start the unlock process and wait for the unlock codes to be delivered to your inbox. The code generation period depends on the network details and the price and delivery period selected when placing the order. Usually, this means waiting for a few minutes or a few hours.
Alongside with the network unlock code for your phone, you will also receive the unlocking instructions for your Samsung Galaxy S9. These instructions are simple to follow, and you will not need any technical knowledge. This is how simple they are:
- Insert a non-accepted SIM card (one different than the network on which you are currently using your SIM card)
- Wait for your phone to display “SIM network unlock PIN” or “Enter network unlock ”
- Insert the 6 digits Network Unlock Code sent by UnlockUnit
- Press submit. Your phone is unlocked!
Now, after the above steps have been performed your phone will finally accept and recognize the previously non-accepted SIM card. And after a few seconds, it will recognize and display the network coverage as well.
There are several benefits of unlocking your Samsung Galaxy S9 code. After unlocking your Samsung Galaxy S9 by unlock code, you will manage to use it with any network from around the world. Thus, you can avoid prohibitive network tariffs or roaming charges when traveling abroad.
Some Samsung owners will consider that unlocking a smartphone with network unlock codes is risky. However, this is far from the truth. Unlocking a Samsung with network unlock codes do not alter either the hardware or the software. Moreover, this unlock method will not void the Samsung Galaxy S9 warranty because it doesn’t require rooting the device or altering the hardware.
